On the 6th day of Christmas, my anime gave to meâ€¦
Scary Crazy Masters (and a pair of boobies for fun).
There are plenty of memorable scenes in History’s Strongest Disciple, Kenichi, but the best is without a doubt in episode 49 (and I’m sure many will agree with me on this one) where Kenichi finally made good use of all his training with the different masters.
His previous combination of different martial arts along with his original 5-in-1 no-rhythm punch was awesome, but having Kenichi mimicking all his masters down to their personalities is just pure win.
I’ve watched that scene dozens of times and still have yet to get bored with it. It’s easily the most memorable in the entire series, one that really gave out the vibe of the strongest disciple in history. Sure, his strongest moment was during the final moments of the battle against Odin in the last episode, but that was nowhere as cool and awesome.
I actually wonder if its at all possible to mix and match different martial arts like Kenichi does. It’s probably possible to learn different styles and switch during combat, but combining everything in a single move is probably impossible. The manga has gone much farther into the story and with any luck, we’ll get to see a new season of Kenichi.
Watching Kenichi kinda made me regret wasting my time back when I was learning Wushu back in high school. After becoming a yellow belt, I got lazy and started to skip training sessions and never bothered to go for tests/exams or whatever you call it (since I’ve forgotten the proper term) to upgrade my rank even though I probably should have been a blue belt. But one good thing that came out of being lazy was that I decided to quit and joined the Red Crescent instead and that was loads of fun as well.
“Apachai dash! Be prepared to go to hell!”
