posted on 2012-02-15 09:30 EST
The official website for Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine began streaming the first seven minutes from the first KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple original video anime (OVA) on Wednesday.
The first OVA will be bundled with the 46th KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple manga volume on March 16, and the second OVA will ship with the 47th manga volume in May. Shun Matsuena's manga already inspired a television anime series that Funimation released in North America.
Most of the television voice cast are returning for the video project. However, Rie Kugimiya is replacing the late Tomoko Kawakami, and Yuzuru Fujimoto is taking the place of Hiroshi Arikawa, who passed away last year.
