Anime lovers are mostly fond of thrillers that involve high-level fighting scenes, which is why there is a huge fan following for the show like 'Baki' as it includes heavy punching, beating, and fighting.

The poll indeed was beneficial as fans agreed that they would love to see an adaptation, and on May 2015, the fate of the show was decided for good. Fans love season 1 for the fact that it emphasizes on different forms of martial arts. Millions of people want to learn martial arts in real life and to see the origins of all the fight forms of martial arts and how to work them around by looking for the weakness of the opponents managed to glue the fans with the show. After the first season, fans are impatient to see what happens with the badass protagonist of the show, so here is everything we know so far about season 2 of 'Kengan Ashura'.

Kengan Ashura was DOPE! If you liked Baki, then you'll love this show. You can really tell these creators have a huge passion and love for martial arts. I'm sooo ready for season 2! pic.twitter.com/CsXo2Ofwlm— Sammie Cinnabun 🐰💖 (@FrillyBunny) August 24, 2019
I'm starting to get pissed at Netflix. They recommend Kengan Ashura anime, I get into it then find out they don't have season 2. They keep doing this! pic.twitter.com/Vmc97Jw9ej— KoffeesRapture (@koffeesrapture) August 13, 2019
Kengan Ashura did not disappoint so far! Trust me when I say that the 3D actually isn’t as bad as it first seemed. Some scenes are 2D and are beautiful so hopefully they’ll have a bigger budget for Season 2 and use more of it. BUT THIS SHOW IS HYPE AND OHMA IS A BEAST pic.twitter.com/UxwtUepfzP— Cleaner Club (@CleanerCIub) July 31, 2019
