Hidden Meaning (隠された意味, Kakusareta Imi?) is the 4th chapter of the Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple manga written and illustrated by Syun Matsuena it also known as Battle 4.


At the school's Karate Club, Kenichi prepares to face off against Daimonji. Kenichi is worried about only working on the movements he learned from Miu, Gu Bo and Pa Bo, over the past week.

Last night at Kenichi's house, Honoka came to see Kenichi reading his books in his room to tell him someone is calling for him. Kenichi heard the call was from Nijima to ask why he hasn't changed schools yet. Kenichi quickly hung up the phone after the insult then angrily picked up the phone after another ring, but heard it was Miu. Miu warned Kenichi that in his current state, he should consider a draw or begging for mercy, but Kenichi decided to go through with the match with newfound confidence. He kept practicing those two steps Miu taught him.

Back in the present, the match begun with Daimonji punching Kenichi all the way to one side of the room. Daimonji was given one point for Kenichi flying out of the ring. As Kenichi walked back to the ring to continue, he remembered Miu telling him to move forward first to avoid the hit. Daimonji went for another punch, but Kenichi dodged to the side with Miu's movements. Kenichi then punches Daimonji's side.

At the Gymnastic Club, Miu was sitting at a window wondering how Kenichi is doing. Chihiro told Miu to come down, but everyone ignored her as the other girls were admiring Miu for her talents. Miu was worried that Kenichi doesn't understand the hidden meaning behind that technique.

Back in the Karate club, Kenichi's punch had no effect on Daimonji's strong body and was struck with a kick. Kenichi punched again after dodging another of Daimonji's punches, but Kenichi still wasn't able to do any damage. Kenichi worries what to do next.
