Picking up where the last set of episodes left off, Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple makes its intentions clear from the outset. Although the comedy, romance, and action are still very much intact, this is also a much darker affair. The previous box set hinted at how affecting the violence and suffering could be, but now with its use of a more foreboding colour palette, Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple proves itself when handling drama.

Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple is a fighting anime with a few twists and turns along the way. For starters, the protagonist isn’t exactly carved from heroic material. Kenichi is a rather lame character at first, and is also very annoying in parts. This works as both a positive and a negative for the series, as he is both relatable and down to Earth, while at the same time deserving of a punch or two. What it does allow for is some massive growth in terms of character.

Kenichi is a student who loves a bit of martial arts and doesn’t let his cowardice get in the way of enjoying his favourite sport.

However, there is one genre that stands out above and beyond all the others, as being the most neglected: fighting games. Yes, there's the reining king, "Super Smash Bros. Brawl," but other than that, there were only a handful of titles, and most of them weren't that noteworthy (the overwhelming majority have "Naruto" in the title) until now. Capcom has just released their first entry in their hallowed Vs. series in years, and it's on Nintendo's little white wonder. "Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars" is looking to fill that gap with a quality title from a company that knows a thing or two about fighting.
