History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi







Summary: Shirahama Kenichi is an average student who has earned the nickname "Weak Legs" from always getting bullied. One day he meets a cute girl named Furinji Miu who helps him build the courage to begin training at a mysterious dojo where she lives. Here Kenichi faces intense training from masters of many different martial arts styles as he attempts to become stronger. (From ANN)







Genres: Comedy, Romance(Very Little), Shounen, Action







Martial Arts Anime







Episodes: 50 (Second season is still pending)







Beginning: (1st Episode) Kenichi Shirahama is an average 15-year-old weakling, who meets a beautiful and strong transfer student, Miu Fūrinji. After Kenichi witnesses Miu's skills in martial arts, he joins the Ryōzanpaku dojo, a gathering place of those who are truly strong, which coincidentally 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 daily routine is divided between his hellish training with the six 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.







Storyline: This is pretty much a domino effect anime where one thing happens and its all downhill from there. He meets a transfer student, Miu Fūrinji and winds up joining Ryōzanpaku dojo, which is a place where masters of there fighting styles gather. He then "beat up" a karate student, then the leader wants to fight him, and he loses at first but beat him up the second time they meet. He pretty much does not have a choice of who he fights since they all come after him. He starts to learn from the 6 masters of Ryōzanpaku dojo which he adapts there moves into his own style, since 6 different styles are difficult to learn at the same time. There is a Karate master, Muay Thai master, Kunoichi(weapon mastery), Chinese Kenpō master, Jujutsu master and Miu's grandfather Hayato Fūrinji. With all these different styles of martial arts, they hope that something amazing will happen in there training. He starts to have some influence over some of the Ragnarok members after he beats them up in a way and join his alliance to stop Ragnarok. 10/10







Graphics: Very good martial arts graphics, shows all the moves when they are used and leaves nothing out, there are a few speed steps but thats because they aren't normal people. Most of the moves the masters do cannot be explained but its an anime, but all the moves Kenichi learns are do-able. 8/10







Music: The music is ok, very pleasent and hyped. The music during the fight scenes are very good and dramatic scenes are good also. Still makes you want to root for the underdog Kenichi to win in every fight. 9/10







Characters: Character development is really around Kenichi. He was known as "Weak Legs" before he started training in martial arts. Its really about him and his philosophy on not picking on the weak. There is really zero peronality changes in Miu besides that shes more attacted to Kenichi. The masters start to loosen up to Kenichi or more stricter in there training, either way Kenichi starts to adapt to there ways. There are some flashbacks with Kenichi and the leader of Ragnarok when they were once childhood friends. 10/10







Overall: This anime is very funny while each eposide is very interesting to watch. Since he learns different martial arts move every past eposide, he tends to use them in the fight scenes and its all the more better. Remember the main character of this anime is not super stronge and all the people he fights with, he beats them easily. This isn't Bleach, Naruto or even Trigun where the main character can easily skip all the weaklings and go after the main boss... Kenichi is very very weak in the beginning and he learns from his masters how to fight. He never had intentions to fight in the first place but he wants to be able to protect Miu if possible. This is a truly fight of underdogs. Recommend this anime for anyone... 9/10
