Mangaka: Matsuena Syun Title: Revenge Rating: 7.5/10
Synopsis: We continue Miu and Kenichi’s confrontation with the God Fist and his two other disciples. The disciples leap forward eager for revenge on Shou-sama’s murderers, asking constantly why was it that Shou had died. Much to Kenichi and Miu’s surprise they have gotten a LOT stronger since last time. The God Fist is just standing there looking decidedly epic and sexy, observing the battle. According to the disciples they went through special training with Akira-sama in order to defeat Kenichi (and Miu). A huge exchange of blows ensues (Read Chapter for details…’tis epic!) with the disciples attacking viciously. (One of em aimed at Kenichi’s crotch full force, lol. Don’t they know he needs that for him and Miu’s children?)
Touchumaru pulls out his little firework so he can draw Shigure and Apachai to their current location, but an enemy approaches him (lol). The God Fist basically stares him down, lol…quite epic (and Touchumaru doesn’t even seem to give a crap…he totally got the Master glow in his eyes ready to fight Akira). Miu’s opponent is also attacking her ferociously (to the point where she’s actually being PUSHED back…the dude actually landed a solid hit on her). Infuriated, Kenichi rushes over to her side with a scream “I WILL PROTECT MIU SAN!!! RAAWRR!!!” (well…without the Rawr). It was quite manry (see: manly). The disciple falls off of the roof (where they were fighting) and Kenichi instantly feared that he would be grievously injured. The God Fist catches him with ONE finger and asks “Why did Shou die? Answer only to that,” with this super epic sexy scary gleam in his eye. With Akira distracted, Touchumaru is able to signal Shigure and Apachai their way.
Best Character: Akira-sama and Kenichi…and Miu I guess :p. OH! And of COURSE Touchumaru Akira didn’t even have to do a thing. He just stood there, looking sexy and powerful and it was awesome. Anddd!! Him on that last page? = Yum yum yum! Sex on legs. I was also impressed by Kenichi’s whole “don’t touch Miu-san” moment. He got over to her side really quickly and awesomely. Also, per usual, Miu kicked some ass. I adore Touchumaru. He is the most epic animal ever to grace a manga. He just doesn’t give a shit. Even if it’s the God Fist. He just looked him dead in the eye like “watcha gonna do, bitch?”
Worst Character: None. I mean, I can’t even find fault in the other two disciples. They were all cute and strong and on their personal vendetta.
Likes: Akira-sama, Kenichi, Miu-san and Touchumaru! You already know my reasons. This Chapter was really well done. I liked the whole vibe of it, how they’re building up the climax. I also like that they are showing this bond in Yami members…disciple to master and between disciples both. Usually, when you think of Yami (or at least when I think of ’em) I think evil, heartless beings. But this chapter really showed that some members do look out for one another, some masters do really love their disciples and I just found the thirst for revenge and the fellow disciples desperation really touching in a weird way. Also, Syun-chan did the normal amazing job with the battle scenes. They were nice and crisp and easy to follow. Didn’t heart that they were also EPIC looking. So much muscle and like just cool looking effects to show speed etc.
Dislikes: Nuffin! Can’t wait until next week! I hope the real crap starts to go down! I have a feeling from this chapter on Kenichi’s just gonna be getting 8s and up. I hope I’m not wrong!

§eraph: 8/10 – This chapter was better than last week’s release. 10 cool points goes to Kenichi for saving Miu. As for The God Fist….wow. This was a good chapter xD
Random Rant Time: No one can deny that Touchumaru is one of the baddest (as in most awesome) characters in Kenichi. Without him it just wouldn’t be the same. He’s just cute and badass (love it when he gets the master glow going on) and STRONG (lol) all at the same time. And then he’s just sooo LITTLE and has these HUGE ears and his little pink bow. I’m not necessarily a fan of mouses in real life. But if there was ever a mouse I’d want around me, it’d be him!
