I notice Wolverine and Spider-Man but what are the rest of the names styles as?
Aww, I wanted to hear Denki's voice after he's gone stupid.
All Might, the announcer, sounds spot on, too.
Anyway, Kirijima looks like X-Men, Asui's might be Fantastic Four, the rest (aside from the ones you mentioned) looked like generic color matchings aside from Denki's, which was just electric-themed.
It's a pretty good read, so far.
Looking forward to the anime.
All Might is basically "American Comics, the pastiche". Apparently, the editor wanted to cut All Might from Boku no Hero because he felt absolutely no one in Japan would like or get the character.
The creator was like "the fuck are you on about?" and kept him in. All Might usually finishes top-5 in the popularity contests, it's great.
What about in the 2nd PV?
Deku's looks kinda generic, Bakugou's too.
Uraraka reminds me of Bunker, Iida obviously gets The Flash.
All-Might looks like Superman's style, but that could just be reaching on my part.
Cant figure out who Tokoyami and Momo are.
They have completed the Sports Festival Shounen arc and are currently in the Onsen Shounen arc.
The funnest part of the show is the infusion of Western comic ideals and how they mash against traditional Japanese anime heroes.
>The funnest part of the show is the infusion of Western comic ideals and how they mash against traditional Japanese anime heroes.
except that's not funny at all. It's not even a well-made concept, in the sense that it "shouldn't work". I know the manga is kind of implying there is more to be revealed about the whole "school of heroes, yay" bullshit, but still too weird; why is it even acceptable to put kids in danger to 'become heroes' as some kind of career?
The guy who does this manga is a massive westaboo, I like the 'comicbook covers' he does for chapters.
>What are the Teen Titans
>What is Avengers Academy
>Who is Robin
Do you read this stuff before you post it?
In no way is the school putting these kids into situations where they will DEFINITELY encounter villains, aside from the work-with-a-hero arc, and even that was supposed to be small time mentoring deal.
Its fresh is all. Its a whole new batch of characters you don't know, in a world you don't know, and has none of the cynicism that comes with western comics of "no one ever dies, but no one also can't fall in love, also here's a reboot".
What books are you currently following?
the problem is more how this is accepted by everyone as being normal, or even a good line of work for a kid. At least in X-men, for example, that's just the only place for them; and they fight because they need to fight, not because people support them and they get money out of it.
boy scouts and trade schools are completely different. It just teaches survival, etc. Military schools aren't really widely supported. They still exist, but it's not an option you, or anyone, want for their kids.
Only Vision, I don't give a shit about anything else. My faith in Marvel comics disappeared once Bendis' Civil War II starring Carol "I'm a legitimately interesting person, honestly" Danvers was announced so that they cash in on the new movie.
You do realize that the Academy had no intention for them to actually fight bad guys right? The first time they did they were supposed to be training how to rescue people from natural disasters, and the current time they were supposed to be hidden from everyone in an unknown location so that they couldn't be suddenly attacked.
They aren't just throwing kids at villains you dummy.
it's not about doing it; it's about it being taken as normal and no one even questions their safety or the option they're making.
don't read avengers academy. Teen titans are basically 'solo' heroes that decided to stick together. Their decisions is not supported in any way by government or people in general. It's not treated as a career. Same thing for Robin. Batman just don't give a fuck.
Again, my point is how it is treated on that universe, not that it exists.
>everyone develops their powers in childhood
>those who want to go into law enforcement have to attend special training institutes to get legal clearance to use their powers offensively
Seems pretty reasonable.
Manga has its own problems, but its basically the same thing as Image where its just a single creative team going until they feel the story is over (or pushed to do more because they selling well.)
they're not the police, and you can just wait until they are old enough to actually make the choice to join 'law enforcement', which sounds even more reasonable than teach them since kids to fight crime.
i don't see how everyone having powers means you should teach kids to fight crime.
Again it sounds like you think the Hero Academy is just throwing kids at these villains when they aren't. All they've been doing so far is setting up training situations, and they've been ambushed by villains because the plot needs to move. They're supposed to be training to be prepared for this stuff when they are older, but are constantly derailed by "OH SHIT VILLAINS FIGHT FOR YOUR FUCKING LIFE".
They've even mentioned how the Academy has never been attacked before, and this is all because of a big villianous scheme.
>i don't see how everyone having powers means you should teach kids to fight crime.
It's the kids who want to and are good enough at it. Not everyone goes to hero school only those who apply and pass the hero test
They've all applied to go to the most prestigious school for heroics in Japan, they chose to do so and had to pass the entrance exam to get in, have you actually read the story?
This is much more reasonable than a vigilante like batman taking some kid with no superpowers in and sending him against grown men in eye-burning brightly colored underoos.
God I wanna fuck that frog girl more than anything in the world.
Too bad she apparently doesn't get much focus. I have the manga but haven't gotten into it yet.
much more close to a vigilante than a cop. And you don't go to police academy with 14 years old, i believe.
>The villains are coming and attacking them
oh really? does that have nothing to do with them being on the academy, or where the academy puts them?
Dude, Boku no Hero explained all this, I think it was either Gran Torino or All Might when he finally spilled the beans on
All For One.
I'll recap: random people started getting super powers, most of them decide to be villains, the villains almost take over the fucking world under
All For Oneuntil he accidently gives his brother a quirk that becomes One For All.
With that quirk, he's able to turn back the tide and the heroes win.
Following that, the heroes band together and begin training people with quirks to keep it from ever happening again.
>oh really? does that have nothing to do with them being on the academy, or where the academy puts them?
Not really. One of the students is a mole and leaked info but the academy didn't know. That's why they went to the mountains without telling everyone to try and not be attacked bit it happened anyway
i have read enough.
>It's the kids who want to
>This is much more reasonable than a vigilante like batman taking some kid with no superpowers in and sending him against grown men
batman taking Robin makes sense in-universe; no one really likes that. What i'm saying is that it is unreasonable for people to fully accept kids preparing to fight crime. No one thinks Robin is a good idea. Not even batman..
Stop talking bullshit anon, they are teenagers entering training for future careers in heroism, that includes a wide range of potential from combatting crime to simply acting in search & rescue roles depending on their powers and career choice,s
This is not kids being thrown into direct combat with terrorists like what literally happened in Marvel comics.
You don't just stop training future heroes simply because supervillains exist.
and the reason they don't train adults instead of little kids is..?
let me see if i get this straight.. one guy leaks information of the academy (about the students, i think?) and the students gets attacked, but that has nothing to do with them being in the academy?
>they are teenagers
yeah, a 12 years old is a teenager as well. Doesn't mean he can decide anything. They are what, 14?
>You don't just stop training future heroes simply because supervillains exist.
you can just train adults instead of kids
I'm pretty sure she is, but how did people come to the conclusion that Inviso-chan and Naval Laser are the moles?
Kacchan blows things up, that is all he does.
Ergo, Shigaraki's offer is gonna get BTFO'ed.
Hmm, invisigirl seems obvious, I hope they don't make it some nobody we haven't seen from Class B. I will be pissed if they make it Shinsou.
Best girl is
You're completely right, why would we train malleable children versus obstinate adults?
Why don't we wait to send kids to school until they're 18? Surely they would be able to learn stuff a lot quicker at 18 than they can at 6!
Does anyone have image proof of the manga guy actually wearing spiderman gloves while he draws this series? (apparently its to prevent smudging)
Dude ignored deadlines and went to The Force Awakens release screening dressed as Kylo Ren.
I do not doubt he has an assortment of super hero gloves he wears while drawing this series.
That said, I need this adorable proof as well.
>What i'm saying is that it is unreasonable for people to fully accept kids preparing to fight crime.
They are literally superhuman and at no point are deliberately put in any situation too dangerous for them to handle considering their powers. They wind up fighting supervillains due to circumstance but that's not the school's fault. Also some of them are training for non-combat roles like search & rescue or inventing as well. It's more like a prestigious private academy than child soldiering.
>you can just train adults instead of kids
You clearly have no experience with anything in the world. When do you think Olympic athletes start training? I dare you to find one that started after they hit puberty.
I'm sorry the answer we were looking for was mina
the best girl is mina
>power can melt clothes off people
She certainly has one of the lewdest powers. It's as if she was designed for a much lewder manga.
>why would we train malleable children versus obstinate adults?
the adults can actually chose and know what they are doing with their life.
>Why don't we wait to send kids to school until they're 18
so they can actually be shown all the options they have in life instead of fixing on their heads that they will fight crime.
>They are literally superhuman
and so is every adult that they could train instead
>at no point are deliberately put in any situation too dangerous for them to handle
as it seems to happen in the manga, deliberate or not, they are in dangerous situations because of that 'choice' they made.
>They wind up fighting supervillains due to circumstance
the circumstances involving the academy
>When do you think Olympic athletes start training?
it happens, but throwing your entire life on olympics is not something completely acceptable. It's not something you would want your son to do. It's a hard and questionable decision. On the manga, it's treated as the best decision ever. Again, my point is not that it happens, but how it happens.
They are literally being trained to put themselves in danger to save lives. It's like a police academy, but with super powers. If they are being put in danger, it's only because it will soon be their job. They literally signed up knowing they are putting themselves in direct harm to help others.
She is adorable.
Adorable and poor.
I'm happy that we're getting to see more big-time villains and that most of them seem to be pretty interesting thus far.
>wasting a shounen jump property with an original ending
It will just stop after an arc finishes and continue if it proves lucrative.
Which names? The characters are basically the same, though this is one instance where localizing them would have been appropriate if it were possible to get away from the fact that it's set in Japan.
In Japanese all of the names are the most ridiculous straightforward puns possible. Like almost literally "Angry McFightsalot" or "Bubbles Joy". So one of the fanlators wrote a lot of speculation on possible English names that would retain that aspect without being too retarded.
Indeed. All of that is lost in English, which is a bit of a failure on the part of the localization, but I don't see a solution short of changing the entire setting to Ace Attorney America.
Uraraka is Hulk font.
Wait, who did you mean when you said Bunker? As in Sentinels of the Multiverse?
Well this is Bones. Either Bones will be smart and stop once they caught up the manga. Then restart once the Manga gets further.
Or there can go down the Fullmetal 2003/Soul Eater path and create a anime-original ending. Which of course, ends up being crap.
I meant DC's gay brick-based force field guy.
2003's ending wasn't THAT bad. Manga's ending was incredibly superior, though.
Unless you consider the movies to be part of the ending.
Twice (pic related) is the one that makes duplicates.
I don't know what I was expecting from the gimp, but it definitely wasn't this.
I dunno. It might be just me but I think that most of the Villain Alliances are a bit too samey unlike the heroes. Most of them wrapped in black leather and bare their teeth most of the time.
But it was the same editor that also made All Might into a much bigger character than first intended.
Horikoshi wanted Deku to be quirkless at first and have All Might just be a background figure that encouraged Deku in the beginning and then fucked off. The editor told him that it'd be a much better idea if Deku had or gained powers and Horikoshi decided to go with it, which is why All Might became his mentor and is so important. Even he has to admit that it became a much better story because of it.
Also All Might is actually pretty popular. 8th place or something in the poll
There's 13 of them in this image >>137501151 and only 5 of them are wearing black clothing, only one of them is wearing black leather which is the freak in the gimp suit/restraints.
Quite a few of the heroes seem to be gritting their teeth openly as well.
I was expecting a breath-type attack, something to counter Todoroki, not the monstrosity we got.
I can see what you're saying but I think it's just that they have a more unified design.
They're sort of stuck using a lot of blacks while the heroes get to have a lot of color.
The characters and their outfits are varied enough, in my view.
Really? I just read that the editor's initial statement was something along the lines of "who is this guy? I don't empathize or understand him". I read the one-shot Boku no Hero spun out of, where Deku is this quirkless salesman. If that editor helped inspire what we got, I have nothing but praise for him.
He did not like All Might, but All Might only became anywhere near as important because Editor-san had the godsent idea of giving Deku powers. That's why an editor is needed, but also why an artist/author/whatever has to put their foot down sometimes. It's symbiosis.
We haven't seen any foreign heroes yet, the story focuses on Japan.
But yes this setting is basically a Marvel Citizens worst nightmare, the majority of people are muties and have a 'quirk' of some sort.
The very first recorded case mentioned in the backstory was a glowing baby born in China.
Not everyone has powers ("quirks"), but they're common enough to be completely normalized. There are also those with physical/monstrous mutations that are sometimes unrelated to their quirks (one character is naturally invisible, but apparently has a quirk we haven't seen used yet), though it seems like the stigma against those types has largely diminished by the present point in the story.
No foreign heroes as of yet that I can recall.
Not yet, but the creator is a ridiculously massive westaboo, so there might be some kind of exchange student arc or something like what happened in Eyeshield where the students go to another country to train/practice against kids from another school.
Also All Might is the most American non-American that has ever been.
Its a cape-style superhero setting manga done by a massive westaboo.
The link in the OP is to a sort of trailer for the upcoming anime which displays the anime designs of some of the characters, if you look at the character names in it you will see they are done in very familiar font if you know your comics.
People can point to the likes of Tiger & Bunny or One Punch Man or Ratman but this is truly way closer to superhero shit than those.
Really? None at all? Did you have trouble seeing the connection to Western Comics in Tiger & Bunny?
oh i see, it's more of a stylistic homage of presentation, not direct character equivalents. i'm with you now. that's interesting actually
heh, reminds me of Powers from Hiryu no Ken
If you like it make sure you buy it and don't be a filthy pirate.
Anything she touches with all five finger pads simultaneously is affected by her power. I'm not sure if it's something that can actually be turned off completely, it seems to be entirely physiological.
she's up against this psycho so now's as good a time as any
>Kid with powerful mind control powers isn't accepted into the Hero class because he can't destroy robots in the entrance exam
>Girl who can turn invisible gets accepted
I don't understand, how did Invisible Girl destroy enough robots to pass the entrance exam?
>Thread was moved from /co/ to /a/
Darn it, /a/ already has plenty of discussions about this series. This series is basically western superheroes done bya a huge westaboo mangaka, I do think one thread about it on /co/ isn't out of line.
First for Todoroki's qt sister.
