After seeing the universal appraisal for Baki the Grappler Netflix decided to carry one reinterpreting violent manga into anime. A hard-hitting new trailer is now available for Kengan Ashura, an upcoming anime adaptation based on the violent martial arts manga written by Sandrovich Yabako and illustrated by Daromeon about a young man who competes in a secret world of underground pit-fighting tournaments at the behest of shady, super-rich corporations.
Netflix describes the story of Kengan Ashura as follows:
Underground gladiator Tokita Ohma fights on behalf of business mogul Nogi Hideki who wagers mega-business deals on the outcome of these brutal matches.
The original Kengan Ashura manga is serialized in Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday digital magazine. The Kengan Ashura TV anime is directed by Seiji Kishi and features animation production by LARX ENTERTAINMENT. The series will stream on Netflix in Japan and other world markets beginning in 2019.
