I actually really loved kenichi and it never stopped being entertaining to me, except in the final arc where things were rushed and we didn't even get decent fights, characters switched sides for no reason, Miu's dad had his backstory turned all around in a stupid way, and then the elder just OHKO'd a missile and lived. Why doesn't he just punch every missile? oh, and then the bad guys just sort of gave up and left, with every female stripped.
at least kenichi got with his waifu in the timeskip, but other than that the ending was a major disappointment after 12 fucking years.
>>119944977 Oh man, forgot about Tanaka. He too was a fucking badass.
>Punk ass killed my wife >Be the first person on-screen to fuck up this Punk Ass >Get fucking wasted for my efforts but end up with my family
Fuck I miss that guy.
That last arc was also completely 100% terrible. We never really got to see any of the cool shit, like Hongo got that one fight with Senzui and that was less than a chapter if I recall. Shiba never really got to do much even though he was supposed to be Akisame's rival in the way Takeda is to Kenichi.
Speaking of Takeda, him ending up with Freya, while not unexpected, was really forced. Like, basically all the end stuff felt really forced except for Sieg starting a band, Hermit making shit tons of money and Our Demon Lord also starting a business.
>>119945133 The only thing I liked about the final arc was Kii Kagerou sacrificing himself. That's what it should have been more like, people actually dropping (not necessarily dying but getting taken out of comission at least) as the sides dwindle until it's just a few key players left. I wanted to see Akisame vs Judo Milf, Ma vs his brother, Sakaki settling his rivalry with Hongo, etc. There were a lot of cool fights that could have been built up, but introducing 8 FUCKING NEW MASTERS was too much.
That wakizashi dude was legit, he showed up before and even the elder took notice of him. I liked how he didn't talk shit, he just did his business as efficiently as possible. And the archer chick had some cool moves. But the rest of them were completely pointless. Especially Shigure's "brother", where did that plotline go?
>>119945580 I guess I sort of wanted Akisame to actually get out-done for once. He always seemed so invincible, Sakaki and Apachai had to struggle for their wins, but mr. mustache just breezed through and made it look easy.
really, it was a story with a lot of fucking material to get through, and it took too long doing it, then added even more bosses to knock down in the final hours and couldn't complete any of it. Again, a pity, because I really loved reading the series every week.
I was reading it when we were still behind the japanese chapters, for chrissake. I think the only series that's still running, that I've been reading longer, is One Piece.
>>119945887 Kenichi really did just try to do too much in too short a time.
I'm the opposite to you, I don't mind Akisame never really getting his ass-kicked. He was always a pretty solid mind and even by Sakaki's words "The person I would least like to fight". My biggest regret is we never got to see Elder go full strength on someone.
For me, I can't say I went as consistently as you. I read it at the start, dropped it around the first Odin fight for the badge and then picked it back up again around the Aquarium fight.
