History’s Strongest Discipline Kenichi is an underdog story of a wussy named Kenichi, who decides to stand up to bullies in his high school and undertake martial arts training after meeting a girl named Miu. Despite having absolutely no talent for martial arts, his strong will and desire to improve convinces 5 masters at a mysterious dojo to accept Kenichi as their disciple. Under their tutelage and vigorous training, a strong foundation is slowly built into Kenichi’s mind and body, and the result may indeed merit the lofty title of the show bestowed on this lead character.
A main moral of the show is that while not everyone is gifted with natural talent, much can be achieved with hard work and effort.
Kenichi is a great show with plenty of martial arts action. There’s a lot of character background episodes written into the show, and you really feel the camaraderie among the residents of the dojo.
