Manga Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi (Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple) will conclude in the 42nd issue of Shounen Sunday magazine. The issue (which will be published on September 17th) will feature the 24-page long final chapter, including some pages in color. An announcement regarding a new project is also expected.

Syun Matsuena's series began its serialization in Shounen Sunday in 2002. It received a TV anime adaptation in Fall 2006, and several sequel OVA episodes have been bundled with recent manga volumes.

Not gonna miss it...

The only two good things about it were Haruo Niijima, and nicely drawed girls.

I was thinking of giving the manga a shot, but after hearing a lot of negative things about it that the series is dragging, I never bother, but since it's ending I'll probably start reading this.

Is it just me or are a lot of manga series ending recently? Claymore, KnB, Illegal Rare, etc...

Not that I mind it though since the series has been dragging for quite awhile. The OVA were somewhat alright I guess but nothing special either. The article mentions a "big project" coming so I wonder what that will be about.

Cool, not sure if I will start reading but I do hope they are going to make a new anime adapting the manga ending.

Then I'll read the rest of the manga sooner.

It was a good and fun manga, Niijima will remain beyond description (<- job well done).

Aw that's a shame, I thought that it would go on for a little while longer. Hopefully we will see Kenichi all grown up and can use
This will always be one of my favourite mangas there is, since it's amazingly epic!!

I heard it was a good manga, but the anime doesn't looks interesting to me. Well, many people liked it so I might watch it someday.

This is disappointing.....well the manga was kinda losing sight of what it was by the end but I still enjoyed it. Here's to hoping they do a good adaptation of it.

Honestly the manga ending where it is now makes as much sense as one piece just ending after the white beard war. I can only hope the new project is just a continuation after a brief hiatus

Fuck I knew this day would come once, but its too soon, I expected to follow Kenichi through a lot more awesome fights for years to come. :(

Hoping for the big project reveal to their be a new manga focusing on time skip, or an anime to adapt everything perfectly and slowly (HxH 2011 style)

Salute to the greatest Disciple. T_T

I'm pretty bummed about this even though it sorta makes sense considering where the story was. I'll definitely miss you Kenichi. :(

I had a feeling judging by where the current arc is, but didn't expect it to actually end :(. oh well.

Agree. Stereotypical characters, meh fights. Never understood the hype.

That's sad though it was running in 12 years isn't actually bad. I liked the manga; it has some really nice action, I liked the characters and at least they develop (especially Kenichi).

I wonder what the big project will be.

Season 2 anime when?
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

After a couple underwhelming arcs... it's ending? I like most of the supporting cast, but I felt like it was dragging on for a long while. There were a couple good chapters in the middle after D&D, but it's overall meh unless you really like Kenichi and Miu.
The one thing that I'd love to see is a lesbian yandere.

I guess it's about time to end, but it's still sad that it is, was still one of more entertaining shounens out there. Damn that feeling of deprivation...

I've always liked this series as it shows growth in the character.

I'd love to see a grown up character or a sequel to this series (anime and/or manga; both preferred)

Mostly, they did skip a few chapters that get brought up later though.

I have known this Manga for quite some time now, and I still haven't read it or watched the Anime adaption.
Well, at least there will be a new project.

Illegal Rare was cancelled.


Oh, so Illegal Rare was cancelled. Saw it few minutes ago and thought that it just started this year and it will end already. That sucks for the author.

Eh, I don't want a Season 2. I want a new adaptation. Honestly, the last one utilized SO many extension techniques--sometimes the "new" part of the episode wouldn't even start until the mid-way point.

Just give me a do-over, HxH style.
