About the@Netflix Anime:

About the Manga:

Kengan Ashura (Japanese: ケンガンアシュラ) is a Japanese manga series written by Yabako Sandrovich and illustrated by Daromeon. It was serialized on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday website from April 2012 to August 2018, with its chapters compiled into twenty-seven tankōbon volumes. A sequel, titled Kengan Omega, began in January 2019.

About Each Anime Fighter (source Kengan Ashura wikia):

Imai Cosmo (今井 コスモ, Imai Kosumo; “Cosmo Imai”), also known as The King of Stranglers (絞殺王, Kōsatsu-ō) is one of the affiliated fighters employed for Nishihonji Security Services and also one of Nishihonji’s Seven Fists (西品治七拳, Nishihonji Shichiken). Cosmo tends to take risks during the fighting, and combined with the fact that his fighting style revolves around submission holds rather than blows, he often ends up coming out of his fights more badly injured than his opponent, even when he wins. While he claims to enjoy fighting for fighting’s own sake and does seem to enjoy the thrill of the fight; it is not until his fight with Akoya Seishu that he realizes that this is not a love of fighting, but a strong desire to win.

Akoya Seishu (阿あ古こ谷や 清せい秋しゅう, Akoya Seishū; “Seishu Akoya”), also known as The Executioner (処しょ刑けい人にん, Shokei-nin), is a police inspector and the captain of the 44th Riot Squad. He is also a secret vigilante that ruthlessly carries out his brand of justice
Akoya fought against Imai Cosmo. Initially dominating with the aid of Hiyama, he was put in an incomplete chokehold by Cosmo after Hiyama was dispatched by Nishihonji Akira. Informing Hiyama of her failure, Akoya went solo and viciously brutalized and tortured Cosmo, much to the audience’s horror. However, Cosmo got a second wind and eventually ended up narrowly defeating Akoya.
