So the way I understand it, if Deku continued training his body for years and years, he'd be able to get to a point where he could use All for One continuously with little to no drawbacks, right?
So why the fuck doesn't he just do that instead of enrolling in that academy? Wouldn't be he better off biding his time and then joining the hero world when he's good and ready?

its common in animes

its about playing with your emotions, its imporant to viewer see himself in spot of MC or other charasters that act like the viewer or are the same sex charaster in anime as the viewer

and then make you feel like losing something important without actually losing it. possibly at the end you will be given actual results to give you last pit of emotion feelings so you get that "what to do next" in your life

way to fool you i tell you that. free will is illusion if you do not control your emotions and i can say with 100% chance that you do not control them, only that you believe you are in control of them

Reminds me of how Goku learned the Kaioken and Spirit Bomb to beat the Saiyans only to not end up being able to beat the Saiyans with those.

To be a hero you need a license.

Of all the shounenshit cliches this one pisses me off the most. I feel sorry for the MC busting his ass to take down a homicidal psycopath who killed his family and friends only to have some sanctimonious cunt shove their preachy bullshit onto you right before you exact your revenge. And it almost always happens right after the heroes carve their way through the big bad's hechmen, whose biggest sins were simply not finding a better employer, so them sparing the asshole responsible for it all in the first place because "muh morals" just shows what a bunch of hypocritical shitstains they are.

>>151602238
Yeah indeed, I think one of the reasons I really rate Negima above the other shounen series is how Negi actually goes against the established notion of "proper hard work and honest training"and instead goes for "corrupted power".

I mean a lot of other shounen do still end up doing/using some corrupted/dark power, but that's usually like after they exhausted everything and things are desperate.

That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

You do make a pretty good point. There was a point in the beginning of part 2 though where Captain Yamato says Naruto should rely on his own strength and not the fox's, which led to the development of the rasenshuriken. It was inevitable for him to start using that fox power anyways.

Negima is just a legit genius though. He was never presented as some sort of underdog except in his age, pretty much the first thing we hear about him is "HELLO I'M 10 GRADUATED FROM OXFORD CAN SPEAK RANDOM LANGUAGES FROM EVERYWHERE AND A GENIUS MAGUS PLEASE TREAT ME WELL"

>>151602255
Demons being the 'good' guys probably comes from Paradise Lost. Also from the fact that God and His angels, while they don't deny free will, in the OT especially don't really have an open mind at any point in time. God is right and if you agree with him then you are too. There's no room for discussion. He doesn't take away free will since you CAN turn away from Him, but that makes you automatically evil and you can see how that would be a pretty poor theme for a shonen aimed at kids.

but a good protagonist has a personal goal they are actively working torwards. That's what makes Shinchika more interesting than, say, Ichigo from Bleach. Shichika has a personal stake in the battles, whereas Ichigo(or really most shonen MCs) just exist to fight whoever is attacking that week.

Bitchboy Hercules and Perseus are some of the original Heroes and make no fucking mistake, they killed people. Batman is an 'antihero' but because he fucking refuses to kill the Joker he's indirectly fucked up Arkham beyond measure
It's OBVIOUS the prison cannot fucking hold the Joker. Putting him in is equivalent to letting him go.

>>151603733
I honestly think we need more villains who are too powerful for the MC to ever fight squarely and more times when the MC just flat out never surpasses some of the characters in the story. It's both a good excuse to not want to fight and a good way to introduce more subtle ways of fighting, or even thinking whether or not he should be fighting at all.

From what I understand, it was supposed to be a Harem Comedy, but half way through it turned into a pretty good fighting shounen, with a large cast of characters and a way to keep them all (at least a little) interesting.

The funny part was that UQHolder came out as "finally he can write a fighting shounen from the beginning", and it was actually a decent action harem-style.

At first it's refreshing, because outside of anime people tend to look at the idea of "villainising" religion weirdly.

Eventually it does become one of those things where it's probably a safe bet to just assume that if the church is prominent, they have some kind of secret evil goal or something. It's an easy way to get some kind of "what now" response, because usually the church is supposed to be helpful, and then TWIST it has ulterior motives and they aren't all good.

You probably won't get polytheism unless it's based on already existing religions in history, most people aren't willing to go through the effort to create a whole knew pantheon, and having a shorthand "religious organization" is just too useful for writers so they don't have to explain tenants and stuff to their readers, and can just go "most people get a general gist and don't know ALL the details, that means I don't have to explain the basics and get some room to play around".
>>

Nigga if I had to count the number of fantasy books and RPGs that villianise the church it'd overflow into the negatives.

Probably getting rid of fusions, it didn't add anything to the story of worth and just made some interesting(?) character designs that all ended up being jobbers to Buu.

A lot of martial arts techniques in real life are named for identification purposes when communicating and teaching and in (systemic) magic systems you pretty much get led to a name organically. "Small fireball" vs. "Giant Fireball" for example. In divine magic systems there's usually no naming, the caster just kind of waves her hand and shit explodes

The moves themselves are fine, but giving them a name, then shouting that name mid combat for all the world to hear is just cringy. It's basically telling everyone within ear / eyeshot of you "Hey, when I say this, I'm going to do this, so learn how to counter it next time". And honestly, it just looks and feels wrong. No one would do that in an actual fight.

OfA fucks up Deku's body because of a psychological stopgate his mind puts on his use of the power.

Basically he should have been using a little bit of the power at all times rather than a lot of the power for very short bursts like he did.

He overcomes this by using very small amounts of the power in unique, clever ways.

Like in Bleach, saying the name along with the incantation makes the spell much more stronger.

Actually, it has been established that once you unlock Bankai, incantations aren't required anymore.
