Synopsis

Since the Edo period of Japan, gladiator arenas exist in certain areas. In these arenas, wealthy business owners and merchants hire gladiators to fight in unarmed combat where winner takes all. Tokita Ouma, nicknamed "Ashura," joins these arenas and devastates his opponents. His spectacular ability to crush his enemies catches the attention of the big business owners, including the Nogi Group chairman, Nogi Hideki.

Kengan Ashura is quite a unique and overlooked manga. While on the surface Kengan Ashura may seem like an average battle manga with big muscular men punching each other, it's so much more than that. While it does indeed include big muscular men punching each other in cool ways it also has a strong emotional core and it could even be said to be one of the greatest martial arts stories ever told. The story is simple but well executed. An average middle-aged salaryman by the name of Yamashita Kazuo just so happens to witness a street fight where a young man defeats a Yakuza read more

I have sort of just started reading manga really so not sure how great my opinion or review would be but eh. I love fighting stories or whatever for anime or manga like baki,hajime no ippo, and even this. I think the art is amazing and all the characters are interesting and cool to me. The story isn't a masterpiece or anything but I love it and love almost all the fighters minus some. The non fighters are entertaining and I enjoyed watching how everything would unfold. I think the art is great and gets better as the series goes on and I enjoyed this read more

Kengan Asura is refreshingly straightforward about what it wants to be. Even though I had many issues with it over the course, it’s still nice to read a manga where the team behind it clearly knew what they wanted to do and were passionate about executing it to the best of their ability.

Kengan is first and foremost about action, action and more action. To a point where nearly entire 27 volumes of it are a single, gigantic tournament where not a single damn fight is omitted. Plot, while present, takes a back seat or rather gets shoved in the trunk. As such, I think read more

Boys, what a damn piece of art we got here ! I'm not a professional, but I'll try to give you all a good review.

First, the story. Even if I love it, I must say it's a bit simple (excluding character's development), I mean, it's a series of fight, even if there are some events which come enrich the story. The humor, just like the fights, is pretty good.

Second, character's development. I rarely see a manga with such great and well-developed characters. Everyone is fascinating, even the useless ones. It make the story much better, because we know why all of them are fighting.

Finally, the read more
