Kengan Ashura

Has anyone else watched this yet? It's on Netflix.

It's a mental anime about a secret cabal of businessmen who settle disputes and business deals by having fighters fight in durls. Basically Fight Club with Japanese Zaibatsus.
A proper testosterone fest that fucking loves fighting!

Its quite fun and I really like the animation, it looks quite slick and stylish but I know nothing about animation. Would deffo recommend based on the first two episodes.

I'm tempted by it. I quite enjoyed Baki the Grappler, which is of similar ilk on Netflix (until it starts throwing random people from a much larger scope than of the adaptation) and I did like "How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?" (which is allegedly set in the same universe, but I doubt has much similiarities).

However, I can't get past the CGI. I can't stand Japanese CGI, it always looks terribly janky and lo-fi.

I can understand that but I quite like it, I haven't seen much of it before.

Seriously though, have you seen Baki? If you like this, it's cut from the very same cloth.

No! There's only two seasons (sorry Netflix, Parts). Fucking blue balls or what!?

Suppose i'll try this Baki to fill the Kengan void in my heart.

Almost finished Baki, it's utter fucking insanity and I enjoyed it but i'm unsure if the pacing is off or if its just slow because it feels like nothing gets accomplished until the end of the first season.

Bit of a pointless necropost but for anyone interested in Baki, the next season is coming on Netflix on June 4th.

Yeah, looks like it's going to be more of a standard tournament than first series, which interests than me less than needless violent random street fights with assorted psychos in Tokyo. Will still watch it eventually, though.
