I can't wait for Hibiki to show up in Kengan Ashura and defeat Ohma with one punch.

I agree, you should also read the campanion manga, Kengan Ashura. Itís pretty good too

It's really annoying coming to this thread to read Kengan Ashura stuff but realise most of the new posts are about another series.

Can you Danberu make your own thread? I'm probably in the minority here.

It keeps the thread pretty active and there's a KA cameo like every chapter since they take place in the same world. I don't mind it.

They have the same author and constant crossovers since they take place in the same universe. I don't see a problem. Plus a Danberu thread would be very slow since only a few people post about it with any regularity.

There's really no meaning in making beetles fight.


one thing that sucks with kengan asura is that there's barely any upsets. The strongest guy with the biggest deadliest techniques wins.

Cosmo is a pretty solid underdog. The series doesn't bullshit around the fact that being small and weighing a lot less than another fighter is a disadvantage so he has to almost entirely rely on submissions. He doesn't magically punch ten times above his weight class.

The suspense arises from that we don't always know who is "the strongest guy with the biggest deadliest technique" in a given match-up.

nah id say his technique is more a plus than a guy like dudley who was born to job. Same with d*sney mascot guy.

Edit: I mean if you dont watch out he magically appears behind you and submits you in one second.

Cosmo is interesting because his frame and fighting style require him to basically take pain to get his opening. As his opponents get tougher he has to be willing to eat more damage to get his opportunity, which is really bad news given some of the competitors.

I dig that Chiba is just bluffing instead of actually being some insane all-copying prodigy, cause he's a lot more interesting that way.

I'm pretty sure Chiba is jobbing but knowing Kengan Asura we can't actually know that for sure. And I love that about this series.

First PV for Kengan Asura is out. Going to be handled by Larx Entertainment and directed by Seiji Kishi with music by Yasuhara Takanashi if those names mean anything to you (they don't to me)

I really hope it's not going to be CG, television CG has not been consistently good at all over the years.

Seiji Kishi made Angel Beats and Tsuki wa Kirei, which are romantic/emotional school comedies, and now I'm really curious about what he's going to make with Kengan Asura. I don't know anything about Larx, and from a quick google search they made lots of 3DCG animation for other anime, they never produced anything on their own.

So Kengan TASKMASTER could have won is he hadn't tried an akido move, he was in fact beating on Sen up until that point from what I gather.

It's the difference between knowledge and wisdom. He knows a lot of different techniques, but isn't practiced enough to read the situation for which to apply. He's the world's greatest actor, but never follows the script.
