  1. 2Baki


    You could say that Kengan Ashura is the spiritual successor to Baki or you could even call it a blatant copy due to how strikingly similar they are to one another. Regardless, Baki is a no-brainer recommendation if you're looking for an anime like Kengan Ashura and its MMA-centered theme.

  2. 3Air Master


    Air Master didn't get a lot of buzz when it came out years ago and part of the reason is with its lackluster plot. When it came to the action though, it handily delivers. That's why it's a decent choice if you're looking for something similar to Kengan Ashura's martial arts fights.

  1. 4Samurai Champloo


    Samurai Champloo will come off as a strange show at first because of how it tries to mix different periods - era - of time in its story. Hip hop music servicing as a backdrop for epic samurai swordfights? Looking for an anime like Kengan Ashura with the same martial arts feel? Look no further than this one.

  2. 5Megalo Box


    What makes Megalo Box and Kengan Ashura so similar is the fact that both protagonists fight in the name of corporate interest and greed. One is done in the shadows, while the other is made into a spectacle. Regardless, get ready for a lot of cool fights and awesome finishes.

  3. 6Fist of the North Star


    Both Kengan Ashura and Fist of the North Star feature protagonists on a violent path, filled with battles and challenges, all in order to fulfill their goals. Okita does it to seek vengeance and justice. Kenshiro does it in order to protect the one he loves. You'll enjoy watching them, either way.

Stream this anime series today, witness Baki's tireless training, and find out if he'll be able to reach his goals.

  5. 8Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple


    Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple is more light-hearted compared to Kengan Ashura, but don't let that fool you into thinking it isn't any good. The fight sequences here have the same wow factor as well as a nice story revolving around character development.

  6. 9Hajime no Ippo


    Hyper stylized and over-the-top action is the name of the game with the boxing anime Hajime no Ippo. In this regard, both it and Kengan Ashura are very similar. If you loved watching Kengan Ashura, you'll this one just as much.
