History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

Shirihama Kenichi is a weak scaredy-cat, and his status as the karate club's punching bag has earned him the name of ‘Weak Legs'. One day Kenichi meets Miu and, impressed by her skill after she effortlessly throws him to the ground, he follows her to the Ryouzanpaku dojo. There he finds five great masters of martial arts, and driven by his desire to become stronger, he begs them to accept him as their student - though it won't be easy. Kenichi endures harsh training (and injury) from Akisame - the philosophizing Jujitsu master; Apachai - the Muay Thai ‘God of Death'; Kensei - the ecchi Chinese Kempo Master; and Shigure - the weapons prodigy. Finally after proving his determination, he is accepted by Shio - the 100-dan Karate Master, who had initially wanted nothing to do with him. Now Kenichi walks the long and arduous path to becoming a master himself, all whilst trying to protect those he cares about from anyone who would dare to harm them.

The plot shows Kenichi become stronger through... read more

This is an "old" manga, 15 this year, I believe the story has held up extremely well. Again this is like Breaker(a pre-Breaker by 5 years) a young boy who gets picked on, and whom gets stronger to defeat all(most) of his enemies, a very normal shonen style manga. Now spoilers. ~SPOILERS~ Other then that his crazy ass training, which made me giggle like a little girl. His meeting people who could've... read more
