** In Aiki, Daiki was the first major antagonist that Joukyuu at 80% barely defeated. Later on, Joukyuu had to declare a tie in a sparring match with Houju and lost to Veronica on their first battle (Subsequently defeating her with his new 90% strength).

-->"''Frieennds? So you're that kind of guy? Always singing the same old song. 'You're not alone.' 'If you have troubles we will be there for you.' 'Together we are strong.' Those kinds of songs, there are so many of them! (...) However... don't you think they say that just to cover their own incompetence? Isn't that just a means to cheer oneself for being poor and hopeless? 'Friends' is what you call someone who likes to be someone else's minion, isn't it? [[SlasherSmile I don't need such things like 'friends'! Well, I don't have any friends to begin with]]!"[[note]]Full disclosure -- he's saying this to the new BigBad's new QuirkyMinibossSquad to get their goat while deliberately giving his students a preview of what they'll be up against.[[/note]]

AIKI is a {{Seinen}} action manga, written and drawn by Isutoshi, an [[BleachedUnderpants artist mostly known for doing H-manga]]. However, as the series has progressed, the manga has tilted more towards martial arts and comedy and less towards the ecchi side (though a good amount of FanService still remains).

However, as the series has progressed, the manga has tilted more towards martial arts and comedy and less towards the ecchi side (though a good amount of FanService still remains).



In short, think of AIKI as a much more lewd and evil version of ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''.

Gained a sequel called Aiki S which is currently in publication.

Of course, it doesn't help that most of Juzenji High School is out to defeat Kizuki, or that Kunitoshi's scantily-clad, female cousin Miu Takatori(who's the principal's daughter and Kizuki's main opponent for control of the school) is trying to recruit him [[KissingCousins by any means necessary]]. Not to mention that Kunitoshi himself is a JerkAss [[LovableSexManiac pervert]] who constantly arranges for his students to be [[FigureItOutYourself thrown into dangerous situations]] and may be the [[AntiHero worst role model ever]]. Despite all this, Kunitoshi grudgingly trains a growing group of women into skilled martial artists while battling a SortingAlgorithmOfEvil as he looks for a way to regain his previous strength.
