Kengan Ashura Season 3 updates had all the anime fans extremely excited about it. Kengan Ashura is developed from a Japanese manga series written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Doraemon. Serialized on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday website, it was adapted into an anime series. The first part having 12 episodes, premiered in July 2019 through Netflix. The basic premise of the manga is an alternate world where fights and disputes are settled between giant companies through massive spectacular fights between the representatives of the companies in an arena rather than discussions and meetings.
The protagonist is Tokita ‘Ashura’ Ohma, who was recruited by the CEO of Nogi Group Hideki Noki after he won against the group in a fight. Later he partnered with Yamashita Kazuo, the latter being his manager. They formed a strong duo in the dark sphere of a gladiator fight, which is filled with bloodshed and full-on action. In fact, according to fans, very few mangas can compete with this in terms of action!

As we mentioned earlier, the 12 episodes comprising the second season released on Netflix on 31st October 2019. As for the third season is concerned, the production tasks had been postponed due to the pandemic similar to other projects of the industry. So there hasn’t been any official announcement from Netflix about the release of season 3. Most probably, the third season will be inspired by the sequel manga “Kengan Omega.” It’s expected to release sometime around the middle of 2021.
Kengan Ashura Season 3: What to Expect ??
We can expect a possible line of the story, which the third season might follow since the anime is a very close adaptation of the titular manga.
The finale of the second season ended with the battle of Ohms and a strong opponent of the Kure clan, Raian. Ohma gets a vision where he can see his foster father and guide Niko Tokita encouraging him to be more strong with no dependence on the advance, and he becomes victorious with Niko’s style. Kiryu is dissatisfied with this since he always believed that Ohms would become a wrathful god, a harbinger of calamity. Finally, in the next scene, Karla arrived and tried to seduce Ohma to marry her by undressing herself as he won against Raian. The episode ends with Ohma consoling Kazuo not to cry because men don’t cry.
The second season ends with Ohma’s victory in the second round over Raian in the Kengan Annihilation Tournament ended. Season 3 might cover the rest of the tournament. If season 3 is based on ‘Kengan Omega,’ which starts two years after the tournament, it might then have two new characters as protagonists, Narushima Koga and Gaoh Ryuki.
