KenIchi The Mightiest Disciple
KenIchi, why of course! It’s all fighting! One big martial arts fest. Getting beat up, getting stronger, win the fight, wash, lather, rinse, repeat.
It’s not high-minded, it’s just good fighting, get stronger fun. And there are some great characters. KenIchi is pretty typical, but I love the masters.
Akisame and Sakaki being helpful.
Shigure, so casual and expert with her weapons.
The ever enthusiastic (kid at heart killing machine), Muay Thai Master, Apachai.
Kensei Ma. Kempo Master and standard anime pervert.
The head of the dojo, Ryouzanpaku, Hayato (aka: the Elder).
It’s a fun show. It’s pretty typical shounen but it’s well done and enjoyable. I watched the English dub for this one, which was excellent and highly recommended.
It also has one of the most baffling translations in a theme song ever:
“But if I feel like bursting into tears, giving it up and losing to my own weakness. I put myself in a birdcage and push it in the valley.”
That’s damned inspiring, that is.
Watch KenIchi. Get inspired!
Until next time: Happy viewing!
*Oh! I actually cosplayed Kensei Ma once! No pictures though.*
