Kengan Ashura Season 3 News
Kengan Ashura is a manga written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Daromeon. It was published by Shogakukan from April 2012 to August 2018.
The English translation is digitally licensed by Comikey. The chapter has been compiled into 27 volumes of manga and one extra.
Ura Sunday held a vote in January 2015. The content is about the next manga to be animated.
Kengan Ashura won the vote with flying colors. It got 2.3 million votes out of 9 million in May 2015. It was decided that Kengan Ashura would get an anime adaptation.
But the news of adaptation turned into dust. No new information was released after that. Two years later, there was news that the anime was still being planned. In 2018, the staff and cast were announced.
Finally, the anime was aired on Netflix on June 31, 2019. The second part of the anime was released three months later, in October 2019.
There is a misconception among fans about the order of Kengan Ashura. The 2019’s Kengan Ashura is considered the first season by Netflix. The fact that they divide into two parts is confusing.
Unlike the Japanese TV schedule, Netflix released the first and second parts simultaneously. Because the gap between them is three months, most fans think they are different seasons.
It is also supported by My Anime List, which divides Kengan Ashura into three different series; Kengan Ashura Part 1, Kengan Ashura Part 2, and the upcoming Kengan Ashura Season 2.
To avoid any unnecessary confusion, we will refer to it as season 3.
