Since the Edo period in Japan, gladiator arenas have existed in a variety of forms all over the world. Rich company owners and merchants pay gladiators to engage in unarmed combat known as Kengan fights, where the winner takes everything. Yamashita Kazuo, a normal Nogi Group salaryman, sees a street battle between two unknown combatants in an alley.
One of the fighters, Tokita “Ashura” Ohma, is scouted out by Nogi Group CEO Nogi Hideki after defeating their previous fighter in a street battle, who enters these arenas solely to destroy his opponents, and is forced to be managed by Kazuo.
His spectacular ability to crush his opponents catches the attention of big business owners, earning him an invitation to Hideki’s Kengan Annihilation Tournament. This tournament is attended by Japan’s most powerful CEOs, and the winner is appointed chairman of the Kengan Association, a position of enormous power and prestige. As the tournament progresses, Ohma’s strength is tested while his mysterious past comes back to haunt him, and Kazuo struggles with managing Ohma and determining why he was invited to this tournament.
