Editorial Reviews

When we last saw Kenichi, he was making the transition from wimp to warrior – okay, maybe no warrior, but he was definitely taking steps to man up.

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 intense – because before Kenichi can finally stand tall, he’ll have to beat his fiercest opponent yet!

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple - Season Two, Part One contains episodes 27-38.

I wouldn't normally be saying that about a fighting anime. Usually the story and characters of that genre just don't appeal to me. That couldn't be further from the truth in this case. This show is so well done I just couldn't help but to fall for it. In fact every now and then I invite my anime loving friends over and we marathon the series from beginning to end over a few days. It just never get's old.

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.

After buying the first season box set I instantly became a fan of the series and knew I had to see the series through to the end and bought these last two box sets to do it. Like one reviewer said with the previous season one box set I could have waited until Funimation released the second season in one box set but I had the money and just felt I had to get it now. The stories main character Kenichi Shirahama who after being bullied at school for sometime even from some of the students of the martial arts club he tried joining to defend himself finds a young well endowed female transfer student by the name of Miu Furinji being set upon by some of the bullies fears for her safety but feels he can't do anything about it, but as he finds out she herself is quite a skilled martial arts fighter after seeing her defeat the pack of bullies easily, after trailing her unknowingly to her dojo home he sees the martial arts masters she lives with and after a somewhat forced pushing from one of the masters becomes their student. But after a few fight wins he now finds himself being faced with new opponents who are looking to reach the top by knocking off the stronger fighters that Kenichi has unknowingly placed himself in. The series is pretty funny with some drama of course in the series as well but luckily they don't saturate the series with it so it doesn't become to dramatic because of it. The series animation and soundtrack fit perfectly together both done pretty well and the voice cast for the Japanese and English cast fit their characters pretty well too. So if you like fighting animes or comedy animes here's a good combination of both...

Season two as a single box set would have been preferable. Parents should watch to decide if it's suitable for pre-teens or young teens, it's not really very bad, but opinions can vary on some of the ideas and situations in this one. It continues the original storyline yet somehow feels a little different at times. Still a good series, and they begin foreshadowing the conflict between KenIchi and Odin. Some of the story gets a little predictable, but that's not always a bad thing. If you liked season one, you should like this as well.
