There has been no further information about the official release date yet. Kengan Ashura’s fighting scenes became so popular on YouTube that a third season is likely to come. But again, Netflix hasn’t made any announcements regarding that.

There’s a lot of content to cover, and it looks like the story will continue in upcoming episodes. Yabako Sandrovich and Daromeon are working on a sequel manga series called Kengan Omega, so it’s likely that Netflix will adapt this into another anime season.

An all-new Kengan Association vs. Purgatory tournament will debut in Kengan omega, but season 2 of Kengan Ashura will continue with the current event before adapting to the sequel series. For now, the story for Kengan Ashura season 2 is a mystery, although Netflix is likely to provide further information later this year.
