Don't let the 3 first episodes fool you! The OVA takes a huge step to what it's suppose to be after those 3 first episodes. Really enjoyed the show when I watched 4-7.

I recommend to watch the original show before checking out the OVA sense it's story continues after and they spoil some story about the original show and they also tells you the personality of the characters and you might not want to know that until you know them by watching the original show.

As a person who only watched the anime, i found the series outstanding and i really got into the anime so much that it made me want to read the manga. But as previous reviewers comments say the Ova was a bit of a downfall for me...
The first was a good start after the series ended but with only 3 Ova's and where it left off wanted me wanting more... and thats a feeling no anime lover wants..
Watching Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi go for it.. all thumbs up...but if you want to watch the Ova's be ready for not much.. its not at all read more

Both are very funny/hilarious animes.
There is fighting in igano kabamaru,though it is not as epic as history strongest disciple kenichi.

They fight for the one they love or like. I would definitely recommend both these animes if you're looking for something to watch.
While Jojo's Bizarre Adventure takes it to a slightly higher level in terms of action and fighting, the Kenichi OVA's still manage to entertain the viewer by providing a well continuation of the prequel story and adds on top of that better art and animation which is similar to Jojo's art but also with better and more intense fights!
