History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi is a shonen manga and anime series about a young man name Kenichi Shirama, who may go on to become the world's greatest martial artist.

Kenichi is a hapless schoolboy who attempts taking up martial arts to fend off the bullies who plague him. Though initially unsuccessful, Kenichi's life is turned upside down by Miu Furinji, a new transfer student and martial arts prodigy who inducts him into her home, the Ryozanpaku dojo, a place where some of the world's greatest martial arts masters live and train.

The masters put Kenichi through Hellish training, and while Kenichi soon finds himself able to fend off his old tormentors, he also becomes a victim of his own success, as he attracts the attention of gang members who look to test themselves against him, or to recruit him into their groups. This doesn't suit Kenichi, who has mostly just sought a quiet life but now finds himself targeted by the powerful Ragnarok gang.

Eventually, the battles against delinquents give way to a new struggle over the soul and nature of martial arts. To Kenichi, his masters and his friends, martial arts exist as a tool to protect life, a view which they fight to uphold against the organisation Yomi, who hold that killing arts are the true form of martial arts.
