    History's Strongest Disciple? Kenichi!

    Anyone? Great anime! About a boy (Kenichi) that got the name Weak Legs because he was always being bullied. Then one day he met a girl, Miu. And after that point, his life was changed completely. Like I said above "Great anime", slap stick (reference from Anime Pulse, anyone listen to it? Well yeah, means funny, humor) action, drama, you know the works, basically a Shonen anime.


    Anyone ever watched/ heard of?

    Re: History's Strongest Disciple? Kenichi!

    Well, considering I'm translating the manga... and the group that's distributing the scanlations is one of the groups subbing the anime...

    (BTW, "slapstick humor" is a reference to vaudeville routines, if not older. And it doesn't mean just "funny", but a particular type of physical humor, involving pratfalls and the like.)

    I'm not going to get into a fight, but I said reference to Anime Pulse, so I mean they explain it as in what I said. But whatever, now I know the real meaning. No biggy!

    The end of the anime was the end of Volume 16.

    Re: History's Strongest Disciple? Kenichi!

    The last episode is going to be released by Kuro-Hana this week. Is the anime totally off compared to the manga? I don't want to stop this series, I really enjoy it. So I mean if there is a lot of things that are cut out of the anime from the manga, I'll start! Anyone know?

    Re: History's Strongest Disciple? Kenichi!

    The anime follows the manga pretty closely. Some chapters were skipped (of the ones scanlated, 63-65, and at least one previous, were skipped; of those not yet scanlated, about a dozen between the fight with Thor and the trip to Kenichi's old neighborhood were skipped, roughly volume 12 and half of 13), one episode was inserted (#23, the visit of Izumi Yuuka to Ryouzampaku), and (especially in the first 2-3 episodes) there was some mix and match in order to get Kenichi to Ryouzampaku in the first episode. (Some scenes were skipped, others appear out of order in the anime.)

    Re: History's Strongest Disciple? Kenichi!

    Eh... So basically, am I still on the right track compared to the manga, if I finish the series with the anime? Like if I don't read it, will I miss anything important?

    You won't miss anything central to the story... but you will miss out on the omakes, cover art, etc., some of which is fanservice-y and some just humorous. For instance, the volume 10 frontispiece has a pistol-packing momma on it in a rather revealing outfit (and her shot-gun wielding husband, but I think Saori is the more dangerous of the two), and the volume 8 omake told the story of what would happen if Shigure and Apachai snuck into pro baseball tryouts...

    You will miss the part where Hayato tells Kenichi how he met Apachai, there is also a part after the battle with Thor where Kenichi is slacking off training, thinking he has become strong enough, and the masters prove otherwise, as he gets severely injured by Apachai. There is also a short arc where Kenichi and Sakaki challenged another dojo where a member of Shinpaku was learning martial arts, but with nasty moves (such as poking the opponents' eyes, using foldable chairs to attack, etc...). Loki mentions Yomi in the chapter after Hermit's defeat, which is not shown in the anime.

    Huh? Which chapter are you thinking of here? The fight with Hermit on top of the bus (which was a draw) ended with 62, Loki doesn't appear until 70, the fight at the abandoned church finishes (which was a loss for Hermit) ends in 89, Loki doesn't appear again until 97, which is the chapter after the trip to the water park... where he does mention YOMI, now that I page through the books.

    Wow this anime best ever.
    Definitely on par with top shonen animes like Kenshin and One Piece, and surpasses Naruto/Bleach IMO.

    Anyway great watch, I hope there'll be a second season =(
