Plot, Cast, Release Date, and Everything Else We Know

Netflix may be notorious for sabotaging anime’s reputation with mediocre live-action movies and TV shows, but it also offers an ever-growing catalog of Japanese anime, the majority of which are a solid 8 out of 10 in rating. While it failed to recreate the live-action experience for popular anime series like Death Note, Attack on Titan, and Cowboy Bebop, it did succeed in producing some enthralling anime shows, including Castlevania, Yasuke, Levius, and the topic of the day, Kengan Ashura.

Kengan Ashura is a martial arts anime based on a Japanese manga written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Daromeon. The series, released in July 2019 as ONA (Original Net Animation), depicts a world where the strong thrive, and the weak perish, as most business deals are finalized through combat in a grand arena. Even though four years have passed since the anime’s release, the anticipation for a second season is never out of the audiences’ desire. That being said, here’s everything we know so far about Kengan Ashura season 2, including its plot, cast, trailer, and more.

Given that the first season has been out for many years, fans prefer to re-watch it before moving on to the second season. While that’s a great alternative, let’s take a quick look at what transpired in Kengan Ashura’s first season. The anime introduced us to the world of Kengan, where business deals are not implemented through usual meetings or contracts but rather in the form of a brutal sport: a fight to the death.

Enter Ohma Tokita, a fighter notoriously known as “The Ashura,” who wants to prove he is the strongest and is recruited by Kazuo Yamashita, a member of the Nogi Group. The second half of the first season put Ohma in front of numerous challenges, including the brutal fight with Kuro Raian, who nearly killed him, but he came out on top and advanced to the quarter-finals. Given how the fights organized by Kengan Association are still in the quarter-finals, there are a few more essential clashes to look forward to before moving on to the big stage, which is the final.

Just as in the first season, which placed enough significance on other fights rather than solely focusing on the main character, we are bound to see some epic clashes in the second season. In particular, the confrontation between Gaolang and Agito is expected to be the pinnacle of Kengan Ashura by manga readers.

Considering that Netflix hasn’t released an official trailer yet, we can only glean so much from the brief teaser, which provided us with a glimpse of the battles we’ll be witnessing in the second season. It should be an exciting season seeing as how Netflix didn’t change the 3D animation style but instead improved on what the first season lacked.

Although Kengan Ashura doesn’t rely too much on dialogue, as most of its runtime is allocated to the battles, the cast members do play an interesting role in elevating the experience. Since the second season is a continuation of an entire arc, we will see the return of several characters from the first one.

Tatsuhisa Suzuki reprises his role as the main protagonist Ohma Tokita, delivering an impeccable voiceover for such a menacing character.

The actor is popularly known for his roles as Shiva in Record of Ragnarok, Ken in Tokyo Revengers, Ban in The Seven Deadly Sins, and Makoto Tachibana in Free! Aside from his anime roles as a voice actor, he is also well known for voicing Usada Lettuce in Kamen Rider, which is one of Japan’s most successful productions to date.

Meanwhile, Yamashita Kazuo, who was initially believed to be a side character, will be voiced by Cho, the same actor from the first season. He’s best known for his previous voice acting roles as Brook in One Piece, Victor in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Woz in Eureka Seven, and Jaken in Inuyasha.

The second season will also see the return of many supporting cast members, including Kenjirou Tsuda as Gaolong, Tomoyo Kurosawa as Karla, Junya Enoki as Cosmo, Teshou Genda as Gensa, Akio Ootsuka as Agito, and many others.

As for the main crew members working on the upcoming season, Netflix hasn’t divulged much information except a few details. Seiji Kishi, best known for his work on Angel Beats!, Assassination Classroom, and Asobi Asobase, will return to direct the series. The anime’s theme song is composed by BAND-MAID, best known for their performances in Platinum End and Log Horizon and SiM, whose previous anime-related works include Attack on Titan: The Final Season and Rage of Bahamut: Genesis. Larx Entertainment will also return to animate the second season. The studio is renowned for its works Tekken: Bloodline, Soul Worker, and Monsuno: World Master.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
