According to the website of publisher Shogakukan, the upcoming volume 53 of manga "Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi", to be released on September 16th, will come with an anime OVA with its special edition. Unlike previous OVA releases in 2012, which had one episode of OVA bundled with each of the volumes 46, 47, and 49 of the manga, this time the OVA will contain 2 episodes: "Utsukushiki Tsubasa" about Shou and Kenichi fighting over Miu, and "Shinigami vs Akuma" about a story of Hayato and Apachai when Miu was still young.

no worries. I think they announced the second season starting beginning of 2014 with something like 44 episodes. according to Wikipedia

It says [citation needed] right next to that, so don't hold your breath.

At least a OVA is better then nothing but i would love to see a second season becouse this anime is awesome.

I wonder if it's not that popular in Japan? Every anime lover I know is dying to finally get another season. Still, an OVA is better than nothing, I'll take it.

A new season is wanted.. I am so tired from waiting..

While this is a nice gesture which I will gladly accept, I'd still rather have a second season.

They could easily make live action for this series to cover many parts of manga, rather than several separate OVAs for years

This, like someone else said, they could make 3 seasons already, why keep bringing ovas? ( ´_ゝ`)
Cost and risk balance factor? TV series do not come cheap you know.

+1

But still I'm glad to see Kenichi getting at least some animated material.

Why don;t they just make a second season a n be over with it

Because it costs a lot of money and maybe they are afraid that it would be a failure.

They should just do a hunter x hunter(2011) version, start over from the beginning. Would be really sweet to see Kenichi kicking some ass in anime style again. Would be really awesome to see Shigure in loin cloth again <3
