Web comic magazine Ura Sunday held a fan contest in January 2015 to determine which manga it publishes will be getting an anime adaptation. Manga Kengan Ashura will receive an anime adaptation for winning the contest with 2 million votes. More information will be revealed by the magazine at a later time.

Kengan Ashura is written by Yabako Sandrovich and is illustrated by Daromeon. It began serialization in Shogakukan's Ura Sunday magazine in April 2012. The 12th volume of the manga was released in April 2015 and is still currently publishing.

Since the Edo periods of Japan, gladiator arenas exist in certain areas. In these arenas, wealthy business owners and merchants hire gladiators to fight in unarmed combat where the 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. (Source: MangaHelpers)

Oh, I remember reading the first chapter a few days ago. It's alright so far, but has potential to be a really good series.

For anyone that's curious, Mob Psycho 100 was about 1 million short on votes when the final results came.
