The anime will be released in 2019 on Japanese television, reaching the rest of the world exclusively via Netflix.

Seiji Kishi (Danganronpa The Animation, Yuki Yuna Yuusha) will be the director of the anime under Larx Entertainment. Makoto Uezu (Akame ga KILL !, Arslan Senki) will be responsible for the scripts, while Kazuaki Morita (Tsuki ga Kirei, Assassination Classroom) designs the characters. Yasuharu Takanashi (Fairy Tail, Naruto Shippuuden) of Team-MAX will compose the music.

In the history of manga, merchants and businessmen bet large amounts of money in battles between unarmed men who hire themselves. The winner is everything in these Kengan competitions that originated during the Edo period. The merchants use the fights as a way to resolve their disputes between them.
The mysterious and strong Oma Tokita, known as Ashura, is introduced into that world. President Hideki Nogi of the Nogi Group is the one who meets Ashura for the first time. When Ashura enters that world, the events begin to unfold.

Sandrovich launched Kengan Ashura with illustrations of Daromeon in 2012, having announced the release of volume 24 for April 12. In total the work adds more than a million and a half printed copies.
