Kengan Ashura one of the most-watched anime on Netflix. But they also waiting for confirmation on the season 3 release date. We’ll be hoping to watch this anime series sometime in 2020. Kengan Ashura is a Netflix Original anime series based on the manga series of the same name by author Yubako Sandrovich. The first season of the anime adaptation for Kengan Ashura aired in the summer of 2019. Also, this anime produced by LARX Entertainment (a subsidiary of Studio Hibari). After the successful first season, Netflix releases the second season in the autumn of 2019.
What’s the Kengan Ashura synopsis?
Here’s the official description from Netflix:
“Kazuo Yamashita is an ordinary fifty-six-year-old man. One day he is summoned by the chairman of his company and hired as a manager of a gladiator. Kazuo Yamashita learns that these hired gladiators engage in battles called “Kengan Matches” to protect the corporate rights of the businesses they represent. Also, Kazuo Yamashita is assigned to manage a mysterious Kengan fighter named Ohma Tokita. However, both men join the “Kengan Zetsumei Tournament” with the hope of winning the spot as chairman of the Kengan Organization.”
Will Netflix renewed Kengan Ashura for season 3?
There’s no official confirmation from Netflix. But we think how popular the anime series has become in such a short time. We’re also hopeful for the Netflix renewed for season 3 sometime in 2020. However, due to pandemic we can even watch the new season in 2021.
We also expect this for season 3:
“Season 2 finished up with the Ohma’s battle in the second round, beating Raina, and proceeding onward to the third round/quarter-last. Considering there are two further adjusts, the semi-last and last, after the quarter-finals there’s as yet an enormous bit of the story to be secured.”

Check a few of the latest reviews from Rottentomatoes:
This was great piece of anime and felt like the more updated version of Street fighter with a full list of strong characters.
I hadn’t watched anime for a long time, when I found Kengan Ashura on my Netflix feed. It has the perfect combination of gory violence and interesting plot that has always grabbed my attention. I guess the only thing I didn’t really like was Kazuo Yamashita; he’s kind of annoying as he’s screaming, shouting and looking confused all the time.
One of the best fighter anime I watched, best by far than BAKI, so enjoyed, every fight of the different fighters are excellent. I’m not a fan of cgi, but this is in another level, so fluid.
If you’re looking for a serious realistic combat anime this is not it. if your looking for a spectacle fighter/comedy this might be for you. many of the jokes are hilarious and the fights are great to watch even if the art styles looks kinda bad 1/4 of the time i would still recommend this anime if you like stuff like baki the grapler and kongou banchou.
