This anime is also known as Sorcerous Stabber Orphen. It’s a remake of the original anime which was aired 1998-1999. This anime is the story of Orphen who is considered as the best sorcerer in their class at the Tower of Fang. He is on a journey to bring back her sister Azalie to her true form.

Kengan Ashura 2nd Season – Netflix
Started Airing: October 31, 2019
When we talk about new martial arts anime, Kengan Ashura would certainly be among the most popular. Maybe because it has a big resemblance to Baki the Grapper. Since I am a big fan of Baki, this anime caught my attention and I have loved all the bloody fight scenes it offered.
So when you are looking for an anime with a high level of martial art fights, then watch this anime. It has lots of heavy punching, throwing of bodies, kicks, broken ribs, bones and bloody as hell.
Considering that it is similar to Baki the Grapper, expect that you would see a lot of different martial arts styles in this anime. After the successful season 1, you’ll certainly be more entertained with Season 2 where the main character has become more matured, much better and stronger than ever.

On his journey, he met a girl named Rin. She would need the help of Manji in order to avenge the death of her family in the hands of a group of Samurai. They found themselves traveling together in hopes of finding fulfillment in their life.
If you are into bloody anime with a lot of blade fights, this is the anime you are looking for. Since it involves samurai, expect it to have a lot of exciting fight scenes which involve cutting off arms, heads and other parts of the body.
Tenka Hyakken: Meiji-kan e Youkoso!

The story of this anime is unique revolving around maidens who are physical incarnations of ancient swords. And since the Era of war is over, they must now try to live a happy and peaceful life.
Though it would certainly be hard to live a peaceful life as they are now faced with a new foe. This story of swords and maidens would certainly captivate you with their kawaii looks. There are a lot of interesting characters in this anime so watching it would certainly be fun. Plus the character design is well made which is a big bonus.
If you love to watch fighting maidens, then you definitely should watch this.
Levius – Netflix
Started Airing: December 2019
Rejoice mecha anime fans. This anime Levius by Netflix would certainly be something to consider watching. Many of the people who were able to watch it guarantees that you’ll also love it so try giving it a shot.
The anime is set in the time after the war which is considered as the Era of Rebirth. In this time, cybernetically augmented fighters are popular especially when you are looking for fame or fortune. The fighters involved in this battle have turned their bodies into a fighting machine.
Our main character Levius is among these fighters whose only purpose for joining is for his love for the sport of boxing. This martial arts anime uses CGI animation which might be good for others and not that good to some. It depends on your preference.
You’ll certainly love rooting for Levius as he starts from the bottom slowly climbing to the top. And of course, the path was not easy as he faces a lot of strong foes along the way. Since it’s boxing, expect a lot of nice action scenes in this anime.
