Just read the first one, anyone also read this? And if so, any thoughts?
That is different, but sounds like a drunk frat party game. Pick the right skittle, or eat shit!
It's cliche "school kid makes friends, saves world with special one-of-a-kind power" shonen.
However, BnHA really does much better than tripe like Naruto or SnK.
It actually has good characterization, shit wraps up without being drawn out for a literal year, training arcs are simply montages and just short little epiphanies rather than LET ME MAKE YOU BLEED TO DEATH OH THATS HOW I GET STRONGER. As well, teen angst is kept at a low, and the psychopathic villains really are fucking unlikable and psychopathic.
Best of all, the douchebag rival really is a fucking douchebag. You aren't "forced" to like him by painting him as the series "bad boy."
Really, this series shouldn't be good as it is from what it's made from, but the author is doing everything right.
It's not a steaming bowl of shit. It's actually good.
I just wish the author wasn't quite so into more realistic proportions for the girls though. I'm not a fan of thunder thighs.
>I just wish the author wasn't quite so into more realistic proportions for the girls though. I'm not a fan of thunder thighs.
Huh, the artist really does have excellent knowledge of light and shadow. Look at the curves on the girls' bodies, but then put down your dick and look at how nicely shaded they are with the light source at their back.
That shit isn't only well shaded, it's in full-color.
>Best of all, the douchebag rival really is a fucking douchebag. You aren't "forced" to like him by painting him as the series "bad boy."
I really like how Bakugou is done. He just wants to be the best. No edgy past or anything. Simple and straight to the point.
But that's the best part about Horikoshi's girls.
>I really like how Bakugou is done. He just wants to be the best. No edgy past or anything. Simple and straight to the point.
There's no gay melodrama about how sad and wounded he is, either.
We're not forced to sympathize him; we can certainly respect his willingness to get the job done, accomplish his dreams, and become the best, but we all still know he's an asshole.
And FireIce kid is the sympathetic one with the sad backstory, but he's not a mopey shit about it.
The Academia characters really are just so nice. Even the "perverted ugly gag-relief midget" isn't a bad or annoying guy; he's just exactly what he is.
She has the weirdest Quirk (aside from lumbering hulk Lovecraft abomination student, or the talks-with-animals-rock-monster). Does she have some sort of real-world inspiration for it? Are there any pink-purple moths that shoot acid or anything?
She's like a grab bag of random mutations.
She wanted to be called "Alien Queen". Maybe she is just that weird and unique looking.
Mineta will be a great hero some day, I can feel it
I'm reading it right now and enjoying it, but it feels a tad bit rushed?
When I think of what the anon in the thread was saying earlier, it's true that they don't dwell on training montages, but I feel like the tournament arc happened a little too early. They still had barely introduced any of the main cast's quirks, I feel like I would have enjoyed it a bit more if there was less stopping to explain stuff we should already know for this arc.
All Might is a true hero, and it sucks he's totally gonna die later. I can only hope it's an incredibly manly death.
Didn't they already explain the main cast quirk before the tournament even started? And I much prefer for hori to do it this way instead of dragging it along when it's not needed like the dressrosa arc
No saying Mineta isn't bad is one thing but isn't annoying is a whole other thing. Out of all the male characters he is the worst. The constant perversion and stupid antics makes me mad. He's worst then crybaby mode kacchan
I never understand these people who say Hori is rushing it. We are 70+ chapters in the story and so far only 1 year and 3 months have passed. And that 1 year was a training montage in chapter 2.
Deku's school life at UA would be around 3 years, but from that only 3 months have passed with 70+ chapters. That means if Hori follows this pacing the first year would end around 280 chapters, the 2nd year at around 560 chapters and the 3rd year at 840 chapters. Not even One Piece is at 840 chapters yet and that is running for 19 years.
So relax, Hori isn't rushing anything. It's just that he doesn't spend a whole arc with over 60 chapters on 1 or 2 days in the story like other manga. The longest arc so far was the sports festival and that only had something around 20 chapters.
I was really intrigued when it was about a man with no super powers in a world where everyone is super powered
It's still OK after that, but it feels worse because of what it could have been.
Also he's having a hard time balancing all the characters, class should've been half the size
So you wanted Batman: The Manga?
When will people realize that this wouldn't work, especially not with a 15 year old teenager Batman who isn't a billionaire, who didn't train for years in every kind of martial arts and most importantly that such a story would make the MC the #1 in asspulls to ensure his victory.
It's not even about fighting, Batman is just full of asspulls to make him win and that in a world where not everyone has superpowers. That would be made even worse when the MC is the only one without powers in a world where everyone has superpowers. A MC who isn't one of the richest people, didn't spend years of his life training secret fighting techniques and is just 15 years old.
Deku was supposed to have a stun gun and an utility belt with things for taking care of wounds or something like that. How would anything of that compare to even the weakest Quirks of the story?He would have to weaken everyone's Quirks so that Deku can even stand a chance. Using a stun gun, knives or maybe later real guns don't stand a chance against people who can create explosions like tanks, can create icebergs in an instant, shoot lasers out from their bodies or punch so strong that whole buildings collapse. Deku would end up as the Mumen Rider of his series, forever one of the weakest in both rankings and strength and the only thing he has going for him would be his will to self sacrifice him, but that won't stop any villain.
If Hori went with the Quirkless MC becoming Batman like he planned this manga would have been axed in less than 20 chapters.
Can you read?
If there are no battles it's absolutely irrelevant how powerful everyone else is because it doesn't help them go to school or jump in a river to save a drowning kid
Never mind that, you complain about how it would be batman, it IS batman
Every situation is solved by braining it out and there are asspulls a plenty, basically the only thing deku has achieved is defeating stain and that was because he has o type blood
Why did Horikoshi give Tsuyu such a shitty, unattractive swimsuit? All the girls bikinis are erection inducing. Well, at least 2nd best girl has a good one.
This is a manga about superheroes so of course there would be battles against villains! What else would there be? This isn't a school comedy manga, it's a battle shonen.
And Deku isn't like Batman, he's more like Superman with his super strength but in the wrong body without super resistance. Batman is the supposedly "normal" human who can compete against other heroes thanks to his knowledge, money, experience etc.
The only thing Deku would share with him would be using his brain in a battle, but that doesn't save Deku from losing because of the power gap between him and everyone else. That gap would be even wider if Deku would have stayed Quirkless.
Why are they so cute together?
>Doujins about anti gravity vanilla sex in the sky never
>Almost all the doujins are /y/
End me please
Yeah people tend to forget that 1.has what billions of dollars? So he can make high tech shit to fight powered enemies, while deku can't 2. Batman has been training from a young age and not just that has master lot of different fighting style. Hell he trained with Ra's al Ghul for god sakes. Something else he had. 3. Batman became a crimefighter as an adult and now has so much fighting experience that, that alone should be added into his ability resume. deku is a kid who just started training a few months ago.
Without OFA all of those fights or matches he won would be out of his range.
All those listed are reasons why a series would be shit, though, it sounds like you have incredible shit taste.
Who the fuck would want to skip Rocky's training? Who the fuck would prefer a cookiecutter enemy to Dio?
What a faggot.
Could you be anymore of a faggot.
>Who the fuck would want to skip Rocky's training?
Rocky's training=!shounen manga levels of padding for training
>Who the fuck would prefer a cookiecutter enemy to Dio?
Dio's entire appeal is that he's incredibly cookie-cutter and unabashedly evil. That's why people love him so much.
Humans actually secrete acid from the palms of their hands, although it's very weak (I learned this from the Guyver manga IIRC), so her power is probably just an extreme version of that. She also kinda looks like an ant, but since they're like, fourth generation, and some guys have powers unrelated to their looks (crowbro, rockguy), it could just be random.
I felt they still tied his new powers well with the story. Unlike some heroes in the story like Endeavor, he's not a hero because of his powers, he gets powers because he has the character of an actual hero. Even one of his most notable loses happened because he was being a hero to his opponent.
I thought it was an actual gif. Would be cool if it is used in a fighting game.
I don't get some of these costumes.
Why is she wearing an 80's style one piece outfit? She looks like a time traveller from a disco.
Is that blanket supposed to do anything? Like can it refuel his shadow power under it? If not it looks unpractical and useless as a costume.
maybe Mina just likes the flamboyancy of the outfit, or following the design on poison dart frogs
Well, i guess i can live with her outfit just representing her personality, flashy and genki.
And other outfits like the ones from Bakugo, Jiro and Aoyama are well thought with using their Quirks.
>Is that blanket supposed to do anything? Like can it refuel his shadow power under it? If not it looks unpractical and useless as a costume.
The poncho allows more surface area to be shrouded, which I would think helps boost his shadow powers a bit. Plus he seems to like the dark, mysterious image, so it might also be part of his personal tastes that a black poncho would fit.
Nah that's more like pica, which is just a disorder where you're eating things that are not meant to be food. It's like if you ate your own hair or fingernails, which isn't considered cannibalism.
In her hero costume, yes. She only wears gloves and shoes. She where's her school uniform during class, though.
These threads need more Monoma.
I hope we'll see him in action soon.
None of the kids are getting Nomued, especially not Ochako.
I guess partly it introduces someone who has a different viewpoint on heroes who isn't a villain.
Plus he may have some impact in this arc or even possibly later in the story. The story went out of its way to sort of hint at his quirk and it being water-related.
don't think he would actually do it, then again nothing really dark has happened so far
