  • Kenichi finally arrives at the Ragnarok/Shinpaku confrontation after his training. After an initial skirmish with Berserker, Hermit steps in partly to test his training and partly to allow Kenichi to face Odin at full strength.moreless

    Wow. One of the best fights I have seen in Kenichi my 2nd favourite character being involved too helped. We can see the developments of the redemption of Hermit from evil doer hell bent on killing Kenichi into a kinder less lonely character.

    He still isn't completely good yet you might say judging by the utter ruthlessness he shows here against Berserker who himself seems to be an interesting reasonably deep character. This is where HSDK goes further than other anime shows with characters both good and evil being much more than that and having many shades of grey, like we can see through flashbacks that the master certainly was not the kind chuckling lolly licking guy we see now. Perhaps Hayato is closer to Ishinai Ogata.

    The episode leaves us salivating for the next episode and makes us wonder how much more powerful Hermit is then Kenichi.moreless
