Plot Summary


Since the Edo periods of Japan, gladiator arenas exist in certain areas. In these arenas, wealthy business owners and merchants hire gladiators to fight in unarmed combat where winner takes all. Toki Taouma, nicknamed "Ashura", joins these arenas and devastates his opponents. His spectacular ability to crush his enemies catches the attention of the big business owners, including the Nogi Group chairman, Nogi Hideki.


Kengan Ashura gets anime adaptation.

The premise sounds like it could be hit or miss, but if those character designs reflect the overall quality of the series, then it'll absolutely kill the dearth of good action anime we've had recently.

Well, the new Garo anime is pretty good.

What's with the ridiculous trapezius muscles? I thought the big shirtless guy's left shoulder was an extra pec, didn't know Rob Leifeld opened an anatomy school for mangaka.

Awesome, just started reading this about a month ago, and ate it right up. At first glance, feels like a Baki clone, but Kengan Ashura has vastly better and more developed characters. Don't know how an anime is gonna end up though, as the vast majority of the manga has been one huge tournament arc.

This is apparently a Netflix series to debut in 2019. (no announce date announced yet for Japan but I'm assuming it's the same year)

Also, more cast:

Netflix? I'll check it out. Seems it could be a decent show if the production value allows it.

It must be someone up to the task of embodying the best character's voice.
