Well, the world is starting to notice, which is good and bad. On the plus side, he’s making friends and getting more respect. In the minus column, his rep is growing faster than his skills, which is tricky now that every thug in town wants to test his new techniques. That means between street brawls and trying to score with Miu, Kenichi still has to hang tough with the six Martial Arts masters. Lucky for him, the training is getting more tense – because before Kenichi can finally stand tall, he’ll have to beat his fiercest opponent yet!

Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple is about a boy known by many as "Weak Knee's Kenichi" Who has spent most of his life being pushed around. What others didn't notice about him was while he was taking those beatings he never gave in. What he lacked wasn't heart, it was strength, endurance, and most of all training. From the beginning his masters explained to him in no uncertain terms he has absolutely no natural talent, mental or physical. He would have to struggle against nature itself to be remade. That in a nutshell is what this show is all about. Be warned the show is extremely silly at times but that's the world of Kenichi. I recommend this anime to anyone who likes fighting anime's but also to those who (like me) are kind of turned off by them. This show is different enough from your standard beat'em up that its worth a look. I think you'll be glad you did. I can tell you without one bit of buyers remorse that I own the whole series.
And unsurprisingly the training and action are amped up considerably in "Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple - Season One, Part Two," which follows Kenichi's life as an official student who lives, works and trains at his dojo. And while the sitcom antics take center stage for several episodes (gratuitous beach episode ahooooooyyyy!), Kenichi's fights start to shift from fighting one-off thugs and into tackling Ragnarok's strongest fighters.
Kenichi is shocked and horrified when the masters suggest that he move into the dojo... until Kensei points out that he'll be living under the same roof as Miu. From then on, Kenichi's training becomes even more hardcore -- and he also deals with island vacations (and swimming lessons from Shigure), teacher visits, romantic rivalries, hot springs, Honoka's infiltration of the dojo (and discovery that the masters aren't actually that bad), and challenges from another dojo (Crab-head!).
But the threat from the megagang Ragnarok hasn't vanished, and Kisara has become one of their highest-ranked fighters, the Fists of Ragnarok. She sets out to destroy Takeda for his defection, leaving it up to Miu and Kenichi to rescue those who have left the organization. And Kenichi is horrified when Miu is cast as Juliet in the school play, opposite the school heartthrob Tanimoto -- but he'd be even more horrified if he realized how close Ragnarok is...
The first five episodes of "Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple - Season One, Part Two" are rather fluffy and lightweight compared to the ones that precede it, with classic sitcom antics like Shigure and Sakaki pretending to be Miu's parents.Read more ›
This anime is so unpredictable and it leaves you wondering what will happen on the next episode. That is what kept me interested. I like how it focuses on the main character "Kenichi" to who gets stronger, and the stronger and skilled he gets he attracts enemies. Each bad guy of the Ragnorock group gets to fight him. They are all pretty interesting, especially Siegfried..who sings opera while fighting. LOL!I don't want to spoil the show, but it is a must-see!
I am so dissapointed that I watched all of the episodes in 2 weeks.
