Kengan Ashura Season 3 Release Date: [Update: October, 2021]
I can understand it is hard to wait for the next season after that dramatic ending of Season 2. Most of the fans got hooked up with this anime for the amazing details of ‘Martial arts’ fights between gladiators.
But I think you are already aware of the current pandemic situation. All of the leading studios had to stop their work for the whole year of 2020. But, now that the situation is improving, we can certainly hope for the upcoming season to come by the end of 2021.
How Can We Figure Out If There Will Be a 3rd Season of Kengan Ashura?
I know you still have some doubts about how I can be so sure that there will be a Season 3! Well, let me get you to know a secret trick, by which you can figure it out yourself for any anime or tv series you want like Love Alarm Season 2.
Basically, fandom, sales, and source material (manga) are the main criteria to decide whether a sequel will be produced. Let’s find out together whether that works for our favorite anime.
Season 2 ended with the Kengan Annihilation Tournament arc where Ohma Tokita (protagonist) won over Rainan from the Kure Clan. Since this arc of the anime did not cover the manga series ‘Kengan Ashura’, the third season is going to cover the rest of it and the next manga series inline- ‘Kengan Omega’.
Before it took around 27 volumes to create two seasons. So, creating a whole new season can be tough with only 8 volumes. However, the manga is still ongoing since 2019.
Hence, there is a good possibility that there will be enough resources by the end of this year to produce a new series.

Season 2 was also surrounded by stories of the Kengan Annihilation Tournament. Almost the entire history of the badass fighter Tokita aka ‘Ashura’ was shown in this season.
