one of the characters of this manga

Some months ago, I made a post to suggest you guys to discover Hajime No Ippo, a wonderful very long manga serie about boxing. Some persons replied me with a recommendation to read History’s Strongest Disciple’s Kenichi. Well, I took my time, but finally gave it a try. And when you manage to pass the boring and badly scanned first half of the first volume, I discovered a true marvel, funny, excellent, with great characters, good drawings (don’t ask about the eyes of the guy above, read it, you’ll understand !), and good martial arts :P
To sum it up : you too, if you don’t know History’s Strongest Disciple’s Kenichi, read it, it’s cool :D

To give you motivation, don’t forget there is a  doujin about this serie by Ohkura Bekkan ;) – If you know where to find more stuff about this serie, I’ll be interested…

kenichi is fucking awesome. one of the best shounen nowadays along with One Piece. You should try Kekkaishi too. It’s not the usual shounen with those tons of clichés. It’s really interesting. Give it a try if you have the time

More stuff about the series? I’m guessing you mean more doujinshi? :)

There was one in Muchi Muchi Angel… vol 12, I believe.

There is also another one called Shigure no Arubaito, which you can find here “http://g.e-hentai.org/g/6852/a686cc8f92/”

Yeah, Kenichi is a great series. They just started releasing the scans for the original series that the writer wrote for it, which he must have restarted with some changes (and a sharpening up of his art). Still, seeing where it came from was cool.

http://www.onemanga.com/Historys_Strongest_Disciple is where you can see the original. Only 7 issues of it available so far.

I would still recommend anything by Adachi Mitsuru, but heres a wacky series I found called Ai Kora. This series is just begging for a doujin rip-off, if there isn’t one already. The main character has this obsession for his ridiculously specific ideal female body parts (catlike blue eyes, breasts shaped like the front of the japanese bullet train, a very specifically low growly sexy voice, absolutely straight legs with no ankle for example) and ends up going to Tokyo to find it, and finds the boys dorm to his school burnt down and the 5 girls in the girls dorm he’s staying with each have one of his ideal body parts. Oh, and he’s virtually a superhuman, provided he’s acting in defense of one of his ideal body parts. Very very funny shoujo series.

If I not misunderstanding, you’re french.
They began to publish them. You can find them in a library. they simply named it “Kenichi”…But they only are at the 5th or 6th book.

I liked HSDK for the first I don’t know how many chapters… then it starts getting old. It keeps recycling the same plot devices, and there’s only so many martial arts moves the author can put in. The character designs start getting recycled too.

Aiki is more original and has less filler =P Though to be fair, there’s a lot less of it so far.

Also, I liked Hajime no Ippo… except for the most recent translated chapter which made my head explode because of how incongruous the ‘lightspeed punch’ was. Ippo mostly has fairly realistic fighting (even if exaggerated) so it’s kind of a shocker when there’s suddenly a punch that people see land before they hear the sound of the impact =P

I recommend Katsu on onemanga, by the great Adachi.

Its really one of the best funny/ecchi fighting mangas(i read all chapters so far),but when it Comes to serious swordbattles theres no better than Vagabond,if you havent read it you have to star reading right now
http://onemanga.com/Vagabond/1/01/
and if you like fighting mangas do yourself a favour and dont read Aiki its one of the badest drawn mangas ive ever seen

another doujinshi is this one
http://g.e-hentai.org/g/18853/d664e319fe/

Shijou Saikyou no Denshi Kenzan, by Piggstar. It’s pretty hardcore. Sadly, I have found no translations for this one.

Yes! Vagabond is the shit. Miyamoto Musashi is wicked. And the arts fucking great.

http://onemanga.com/Vagabond/147/15/

That spread should prove my point in that regard. I want that thing blown up as a poster on my wall its such a wicked spread.

I remember the Fansubs of it.
Apachai, quite stupid, childlike and nice.
But if he get’s into fight-Mode, he easily get’s into Hyper-Mode.

I strongly recommend watching the Anime of it too, even tough, most times the Anime-versions are lacking some points from the Manga.
Well, and since it’s licensed, you may buy it on DVD, if you like the Manga.

Glad that you liked HSDK. It’s my favorite too! The anime is decent but stops after 40 episodes. The manga is ongoing.

You’re about 300 + issues behind on mentioning HSDK. BTW, it’s ecchi or soft-core nudity.

Omfg… I can’t believe I didn’t mention this series.

http://www.onemanga.com/Ultimate_Hentai_Kamen/

Utter utter hilarity. Omfg, I cannot express. Just read the first volume, all I ask. Just make it through the first 45 pages and if you don’t laugh your ass off, walk away.

Or at the very least…

http://www.onemanga.com/Ultimate_Hentai_Kamen/1/37/

Start there and read about 2-3 pages. I can’t believe I never mentioned this series here before.

if you guys liked kenichi..i would also suggest “angel densetsu”. dont mind the ugly artwork, the story more than makes it up for it. i think its the funniest manga ever. its from the same author of ‘claymore’, but the plot & theme has nothing similar to claymore..the artwork perhaps

yeh i agree… History`s Strongest Disciple Kenichi and angel densetsu is most funny manga i had ever read :) it’s little dissapointing that angel densetsu is still ongoing, but it’s great and funny manga. i’ll also recomend ” Change 123 ” “zero in” ” Pretty Face ” u can find tham on onemanga.com . enjoy reading tham ^^

If you like Kenichi I think you would love AIKI as well.

Nice drawings, gorgeous girls, ecchi (but more than just some cheap panty shots), comedy and of course the matial arts :D

AIKI is not a shounen (http://www.onemanga.com/directory/shounen/) but a seinen (http://www.onemanga.com/directory/seinen/) and you can see that, but I think that is a positive thing.

Anyways, give it a try: AIKI
