Kengan Omega, the intense martial arts manga series written by Sandrovich Yabago with art by Daromeon, returns with a new chapter this week, and now that the Kengan Assocation vs. Purgatory is over, fans are wondering what's next for Tokita Ohma and his friends.
The mysterious Chinese organization known as The Worm still lurks in the darkness of the underworld, and it's likely that the next arc of Kengan Omega will explore the conflict against them.
Here's everything we know about Kengan Omega Chapter 139:
Kengan Omega 139 Spoilers: Kure Raian vs. 3 Wu Fighters
In the previous chapter of Kengan Omega, we get to see the aftermath of the Kengan Assocation vs. Purgatory tournament. The Kengan Association defeated Purgatory largely thanks to the final match's results: Tokita Ohma's victory against Rolon Donaire.
Nogi says that he's taking the merger between Kengan Association and Purgatory off the table because this competition showed him that both organizations are compatibly different. The Kengan executive tells Toyoda that he wants him to keep running Purgatory, but instead Purgatory will be a subsidiary of the Kengan Association.
Kengan and Purgatory will enter a business partnership. The two organizations will be holding inter-promotion competitions, and they will introduce a rental transfer system for fighters and gladiators.
Katahara Retsudo says that Nogi has secured a stable position, but there's still cause for concern. There's Hayami Katsumasa's appointment as deputy chairman of the Kengan Assocation. He says that if all members of Hayami's former clique were to rise up, he won't let them destroy the Kengan Association.
Update: Now that Chapter 139 is out, here are major spoilers: the title of the new Kengan Omega chapter is Three-on-One, and it starts with Terashi entering the hospital room. Nicolas Le Banner (Jean-Luc) is on the hospital bed. Terashi looks at Jean-Luc, and he is talking to himself, telling "Nicolas" that Terashi is his colleague in Purgatory.
Terashi tells him that he's sorry that Jean-Luc is the wrong person, and that he's looking for Nicolas. Terashi tells Jean-Luc to take care before he leaves, but Jean-Luc looks insane and confused, wondering what Terashi meant.
We get a look at Akoya Seishu, who's thinking that he's "not strong enough to enact justice". Then we get a look at Narushima Joji and Kureishi Mitsuyo.
Elsewhere, Edward Wu is smoking his cigar, and apparently, he beat down Kure Raian, who's face-down on the floor. Wu tells Raian that he's not much of an assassin, and by the time he wakes up, the world "will have changed".
Then we get to see Fabio Wu, "The King of Brutality" and Solomon Wu, "The Fist-Breaking King". Solomon says that Alan was the weakest among them, and was a disgrace to the Wu clan.
Solomon tries to kick Raian, but Raian is able to evade. However, Raian gets beaten up by the Fabio and Solomon. Alan says that he possesses the ego of Wu Hei, thanks to Huisheng. Alan says that there there are five of them in the westward faction, and they call each other by names out of convenience.
Raian unleashes removal, and attacks Fabio and Solomon, but Alan kicks him off, and says that they will be unfair and fight him three-on-one.
Surprisingly, "The Mighty Demon" Kure Eroih appears and kills Fabio by stabbing him from the back, and he tells Alan to make that "two-on-two".
The next chapter will most likely continue this 2 vs. 2 battle, but it's still unclear whether or not we'll see the conflict with the Worm develop in the next few chapters.
