Kengan Ashura Manga Returns With New Arc in 2019

Mange ended on August 9, will receive anime adaptation in 2019

The Manga ONE app revealed on Thursday that that Yabako Sandrovich and Daromeon's Kengan Ashura manga will return in winter 2019 with a new arc. The app will reveal more information about the manga's return in the next few days.

The manga ended on August 9.

In the manga's story, businesses and merchants wager large sums of money to hire combatants for unarmed hand-to-hand fighting matches. The winner takes all in these Kengan competitions that originated during the Edo period. Merchants use the fights as a means to resolve disputes with each other.

The strong and mysterious Ōma Tokita, whose nickname is Ashura, enters these matches. Nogi Group president Hideki Nogi keeps his ambitions to himself when he meets Ashura. Events begin to swirl around the Kengan fights as Ashura enters the fray.

An anime adaptation will stream globally only on Netflix in 2019, and is also slated to air on television in Japan. The anime had its world premiere at Anime Expo in July. The manga won a fan voting contest in 2015 to receive the adaptation.
