Shijō Saikyō no Deshi Kenichi (roughly translated “History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi”) is a manga by Syun Matsuena. The story is focused on Kenichi Shirahama, an average 15-year-old weakling, whose life turns to Hell with the appearance of the naive, beautiful, and strong transfer student, Miu Fūrinji. After Kenichi witnesses Miu’s skills in martial arts, he joins the Ryōzanpaku dojo, the gathering place of those who are truly strong, which also happens to be Miu’s home. After beating a karate student in a match, he is soon targeted by all the delinquents in the school. Since then, Kenichi’s routine is divided between his hellish training with the masters of Ryōzanpaku, and his fights against the members of Ragnarok, a gang who views him as either a possible ally or an impending threat to their plans.
Honestly, the anime of this series was recommended by one of my acquaintances. By reading at Wikipedia, it seems nothing special for me (at first) but things start to get interesting when the number of episodes increase. So, I can officially admit that I’m a Kenichi’s fan now. Although the joke is not hurting much like Gintama, but it’s still hurt nonetheless. Besides, I watch this anime because of its fighting scene (during training or battle) and IMHO, that’s where this anime excel at. Wow…can’t wait for the next episode…
