Its a lie u can skip volume 15 to 30, you would ended missing a lot of things and a lot of plots, kenichi really is growing better, if u see volume 16 he still with a normal body in the lastest he has a more fighter. The teachers show more participation in the history and even is slow in something like the romance. Any guys that get tired of a manga only becuase wanna see a ending arent good to describe things, most great works has 30 volumes but a lot of bad mangas that are popular between teenagers that cant maintain 5 mins of concentration has only 3-5 volumes no wonder young adults are the actual buyers of the originals mangas.

When I first started reading this manga, I enjoyed it. Greatly. The story was interesting the art was good, and of course the occasional near nudity was enjoyable as well. However as the story progressed, it became more and more repetitive. Theres always someone else out there gunning for Kenichi and his friends. Always some new training to make him magically stronger. There is humor in the story, but whats telling is that if you skip from volume 15 to volume 30 you won't really have missed a single thing. That pretty much sums up the manga. After awhile I've simply become tired of it. Too much fighting, not enough story. When all you have are fights, for no reason at all, then theres really no reason to read it.

This is one of the most overrated mangas in history. It starts with a crappy guy becoming insanely strong within a matter of months beating guys who have been training all their lives!!!!!. All because he wants to protect some over Busty Chick he hardly knows anything about. Then getting involved in some kind of martial arts war good vs evil rubbish. The whole manga goes strong villain appears defeats good guy then goes through some obscure training beats villain the cycle starts again with no end in sight. Too much Ecchi Too little plot.

Pure Shounen

In my opinion, this series is shounen manga in its purest form. A weak boy becomes a strong man through intense training. Throw in some gags and some ecchi and it turns into one of the best all-around shounen series.

While slightly ecchi and with average art, this manga makes up for all of that by being utterly hilarious! Kenichi is in a nutshell, a generic shounen manga written with generous amounts of satire. It's the satire that makes it so funny. It's actually one of the funniest mangas I've ever read, with great characters and the best lines.

Essentially an awesome manga. I recommend it to everybody unless you don't like physically impossible boobs.

Turn for the Ecchi

I'm with Convalescence in that it seems pretty generic, but I still find it funny and can't put it down. The fan service is there, but not overdone, until about chapter 300. Then it gets really ecchi, like reeeally ecchi. The art style is more akin to a hentai doujin than a shounen manga with enough almost-nudity to back it up. A lot of it. Miu grew about 2 cup sizes in 10 chapters. I don't know what brought on the change, but it kind of detracts from the rest of the manga.

Didn't expect too much from this series at first, but now I'm hooked. The tension just kept on increasing, but I'm starting to feel that the pace is slowly dying down. But that might be because I'm reading a couple other manga at the same time (that are either on par or better than this series).

Anyways, this series reminds me a lot about Dragon Ball/DBZ to a certain extent.Not as mystical, but the super human-ness kind of puts it in the general area (great fight scenes, cliche but funny plots). Could do without the ecchi though. I don't feel like it really helps it out too much...

That's true, mangas are all about effort and talent.
Maybe it's all because of cultural aspects of oriental people.

Just to coment the statement below, trainning hours means nothing if you dont have the best trainning method, just like in studies.
I know people who study 10 hours and do less than people who do it 2 hours.
It's not only a matter of talent and effort, of course, it's also a matter of the way you do your trainning/study.
