| one of the best fighting shows
"Kenichi" is one of the best fighting shows. It tells the story of a timid boy named Kenichi who has trouble making friends and gets picked on by bullies. His only acquaintance is Nijima a boot-licker who tries to align himself with the bullies by putting down Kenichi. Kenichi decides to learn martial arts so he can protect himself. A chance meeting with new student Miu leads him to becoming the disciple of five eccentric masters. What separates good fighting shows from bad is the colourful characters our hero meets and their personal stories. The pacing of the series is good. With hard work Kenichi slowly becomes one of the toughest fighters at school and he makes new friends on the way. What makes the show funny is Kenichi remains timid unless he has a good reason to fight. Unlike say Dragonball Z the 50 episodes of this show go quickly and the Ragnarok story arc comes to a satisfying conclusion. I've seen the Funimation version and the Japanese version and they are both good.
