Skinemax does fighting manga now?
4 May 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

My 3/10 mangaupadtes review for the original series: I dropped the series early on due to it's boring/formulaic shonen nature but it got infamous on the web so i have looked at enough chapters while watching TV of all sorts of volumes and the final volume to get enough of what Shounen Sunday failed to push on me. I got to see young girls in tight tights turned naked ALL the time and the manga turned into nipple and barely covered vagina appreciation... Or were the butt cheeks the stars as they were bigger then some heads! Most importantly is the fact that no choreography or good martial arts (what is this manga about anyway?) could be found and nearly all the men looked like He-man abortions. I obviously don't know what the big picture is but the category tags look highly confused too. What a twist and Kenichi is also a 1 to 1 "remake" of his previously failed Tatakae! Ryouzanpaku Shijou Saikyou no Deshi so i know that Matsuena's next series will be a train wreck too. At least the series isn't vile porn and just highly embarrassing softcore porn on the level of Needless, Negima and friends but the ending is equal nonsense too which means that either part 2 is coming when Matsuena's money runs out or that a third and identical fighty titz manga about the power of leveling up through training/friendship is juts around the corner. He may even skip a male lead next time and what was his character about anyway? If you care about Martial Arts (and romance) than read All Rounder Meguru (10/10) which i also reviewed and today's shonen bestsellers need a giant Titan (very good and a 8/10) sized kick in the pants to get on my pull list again. I am lastly sure that teenage me wouldn't have read Kenichi ether as he had taste and Hunter x Hunter (9/10)/ Rurouni Kenshin (10/10) / Naruto on his side so read them too and let's see if shonen action can recover in the next few years.
