This is what Kengan Ashura is about:
The Kengan Annihilation Tournament continues – a tournament to determine the chairman of the Kengan Association. For this, one fighter was sent into the ring from each candidate. Among them is Ouma Tokita, fighter for Kazuo Yamashita, the CEO of the Kengan Association. Ouma was able to win his fight in the first round – at a high cost, since his advance technique damages the body immensely; according to Hajime Hanafusa he probably doesn't have much longer to live. Ouma doesn't care much, because he only wants to kill Kiryuu – the student of the man who killed Ouma's master Niko Tokita.
Ouma's opponent in the second round will be Raian Kure, a fighter of the Kure clan whose members have been literally bred for combat over many years. So Ouma doesn't expect an easy task. But first, »Kengan Ashura: Part 2« shows the remaining fights of the first round, e.g. Take, for example, sumo wrestler Takeru Kiouzan and pro wrestler Jun Sekibayashi. Kiryuu also has his first fight and proves that he shouldn't be underestimated. (Source: aniSearch.de)
