6th KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple Video Anime's Promo Streamed

posted on by Sarah Nelkin

Shogakukan began streaming a ten-minute preview for the two new original video anime (OVA) episodes that will be bundled with the 55th volume of Shun Matsuena's Shijō Saikyō no Deshi Kenichi (KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple) manga. The OVA disc will contain two separate episodes, “Guard Shita no Hakaigami” (The God of Destruction Under Guard) and “Tokumei Kibou 18-sai” (Wanting a Pseudonym at 18-Years Old), which serve as episodes eight and nine in the OVA series.

In the preview, Ikki Takeda (voiced by Kazuki Yao) seeks to become the disciple of James Shiba, and says that he will not leave the front of his dwelling until he takes him in. However, Kenichi and his friends find an unexpected side of the buff fighter that isn't so noble...

Hiroshi Ishiodori is once again directing the project at Brains Base, and Eizō Kobayashi wrote the scripts. The preview video also includes some of the cast for the OVA:

Shogakukan will ship the limited edition bundle in Japan on February 18.

Five original video anime volumes (with a collected seven episodes) were previously bundled with manga volumes since last year. The fifth original video anime volume (with episodes 6 and 7) shipped with the 54th manga volume on November 15. The manga already inspired a television anime series that Funimation released in North America.
