This year's 14th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine will announce on Wednesday that the KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple original video anime (OVA) will air on television in Japan. The OVA will premiere on Tokyo MX on April 9 at 1:00 a.m.
The OVA's latest episodes bundled with the 55th volume of Shun Matsuena's Shijō Saikyō no Deshi Kenichi (KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple) manga on February 18. The OVA disc contains 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.
Five original video anime volumes (with a collected seven episodes) were previously bundled with manga volumes since 2012. 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.
