Kengan Ashura, the action-packed anime series that features brutal gladiator fights between corporate representatives, fans will be thrilled to hear that Kengan Ashura season 3 is confirmed and coming soon to Netflix! Yes, you read that right! The third season of the popular anime adaptation of the manga by Yabako Sandrovich and Daromeon is on its way, and we have all the details you need to know about it. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the latest updates on Kengan Ashura season 3 release date, news, cast, trailer and plot!
The Upcoming anime series Kengan Ashura Titled Kengan Ashura Season 2 by Netflix is actually the third Part or Season of the Series Kengan Ashura, but the Japanese creators titled it Season 2 since the first season of the series was divided into two parts, just like Attack on Titan which at this point we lost counts of Parts and Seasons. So to avoid confusion, we are referring to it as Season 3. Also, we are not sure if the new season will also be divided into 2 or 3 parts or if the next season will be Season 3.
My Anime List, a popular anime database, categorizes Kengan Ashura into three distinct series: Kengan Ashura Part 1, Kengan Ashura Part 2, and the forthcoming Kengan Ashura Season 2.
For clarity and consistency, we will use the term season 3 to refer to the latter series.

The third season of Kengan Ashura will continue the thrilling story of Ohma Tokita, the fierce fighter who represents the Nogi Group in the Kengan Annihilation Tournament. This tournament is a brutal competition where gladiators fight for the glory and profit of their corporate sponsors, who can gain control over various markets and industries by winning. The tournament has been held since the Edo period, when gladiator arenas were established in some regions of Japan.
In the previous season, Ohma faced Raian, a ruthless assassin from the Kure Clan, who had a personal grudge against him. Ohma used his Advance technique, which boosts his physical abilities but damages his body, to defeat Raian in a bloody battle. However, this victory came at a high cost, as Ohma’s health deteriorated and he collapsed after the fight.
In the third season, fans can expect to see the rest of the tournament unfold, as Ohma will have to face more formidable opponents and overcome his own limitations. He will also learn more about his past, his connection to his adoptive father Niko Tokito, and the secrets behind his fighting style. The third season will also explore the backgrounds and motivations of other fighters and sponsors, as well as the political and economic implications of the tournament. The third season will be full of action, drama, and suspense, as Ohma will fight for his life and his honor in the ultimate gladiator arena.
