Review of Kenichi

The story focuses on Kenichi Shirahama, an average 15-year-old high school student who has been picked on his whole life. However, after a month into his freshman year, he meets and befriends the mysterious transfer student, Miu Furinji. Driven by his desire to become stronger and to protect those around him, he follows her to Ryozanpaku, a dojo for those who are truly strong and have mastered their arts gather. After learning basics from Miu, Kenichi is able to beat a high ranking member of the school's karate club, and becomes a target for all the delinquents in the school. Subsequently, Kenichi's daily routine is divided between hellish training under the six masters of Ryozanpaku, and his fights against the members of Ragnarok, a gang that views him as either a possible ally or an impending threat to their plans. After defeating Ragnarok, he faces a new enemy called YOMI, a group of disciples who are each personally trained by a master of an even bigger organization rivaling Ryozanpaku, Yami. Along with former members of Ragnarok who join the Shinpaku Alliance, a group created by Kenichi's schoolmate Haruo Niijima, Kenichi now fights Yami to prove his ideals and protect those in need.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

If your interested in anything to do with fighting or martial arts hen this is the anime for you. Granted it is also a bit silly but that just means it ads some humour and makes it a little lighter for most people. I will say that the reason for the bad guy to be the way he is, is a really stupid reason and it ruined the ending a little bit for me but other than that a solid series.
