Why the most commom complaint about this series is the fear the Bakugou will become the new Sasuke? The fact that his objective is to become the number one hero and not MUH REVENGE isn't enough to people stop expecting him to go full emo edgelord?
Before I actually read the series, all I saw was Baku yelling and thought the same. And then I read the damn thing and realized that he's far and away from Sasuke, a better character, too.
He's just straight-up pissed off.
Except that there's not much difference between a hero and villain, especially in his case. It really wouldn't take a whole lot of good, legitimate writing to flip his perspective, so imagine what even a pinch of shitty Japanese logic could do.
Because it started picking up steam as naruto ended so fucking massive amounts of ESL third worlders latched on like a batch of murderous leeches and will never let it go without comparing it to their holy grail.
if you mongoloids stopped taking everything so literally you'd understand the comparisons with sasuke have nothing to do with their personality, goals or character arcs but with the way his rivalry with the mc is cancerous and the fear that the character who's widely hated but also very popular would end up parasiting the entire narrative
now kill yourself
i wouldnt say bakugou is widely hated. only a few triggered betas are the people who hate him. even in /a/ where there is an abundance of these people, only a few of them really hate him, the easily triggered extreme shitposting variant which makes it seem like its more when its not
>Bakugou will become the new Sasuke
I like him, he is one of the few Vegetas in a world of Sasukes.
Lets talk about tsunotori
Other thread died so I'm gonna ask it here:
Should Heroes really get paid through taxes and the government?
I asked this a few weeks ago already. I think it's a dangerous situation, because once there's peace (i.e. no villains) there's no need for heroes anymore (given that this is their primary job). So, the heroes are reliant on the existence of villains.
So, what if a hero fabricates villains or does villainous acts or enables villainy so that he can keep his job and tax money?
Sort of like a fireman that burns houses down.
Looking purely at the occupation and not the inherent meaning of the word, the Hero extending his sphere of influence beyond themselves such that their neighbors also benefit deserves compensation.
I'm not sure if Hori wants her to be a cute monster girl like Tsuyu, with human features exaggerated by association with an animal, or an obvious hybrid mutant, like Kamakiri (snakeface) in 1B. Her design switches between uncanny and cute as she's appeared.
I think we're already getting there. His interaction with Deku at the end of the last chapter shows he's not going to be as constantly pissed off at everything.
I suspect he'll help Deku with fighting and Deku will help him with not being a dickhole.
>Why the most commom complaint about this series is the fear the Bakugou will become the new Sasuke?
What do you mean by "the fear"?
If Bakugou became the new Sasuke, then he would be a lot better than the literal dogshit he is now.
A little of autism with a L/a/tino
Approximate matchups-vignette/page/chapter ratio for the School festival Tournament
(p = page. ch = chapter. v = vignette)
Mei/Iida 5p (gag)
Tetsu/Kiri 6v (a la Metapod)
Bakugo/Todoroki 1ch (chapter 43)
Should Hori take advantage of the upcoming Season and expand said battles? I mean come on. It's wasted potential.
Yeah, she has a Solar Flare attack.
Obviously general light manipulation power set.
>the rednecks that join the military that want to kill terrorists
Congrats on trivializing why people join the army. I wonder why people think that mandatory military service is a good idea...
Hori already gave Kaminari/Ibara an extra page in the tankoubon volume but it depend entirely if Bone decided to do the Stain arc or not. If they do decide to do Stain then I doubt they want to waste anytime especially considering how long the festival arc is.
>Should Hori take advantage of the upcoming Season and expand said battles?
No, I want to see plot and I want to see villains wreck shit. I'm tired of this pussy ass student vs student bullshit that has no relevance or impact on the plot unless its Deku vs Baku.
The exams/tests/mock battles are the weakest part of BnhA for me.
I want to know more about the villains. I want to know more about the other schools. I want to know about the private school Stain went to. That's the stuff that's interesting. The pissing contest between the students? No thanks.
No one is afraid of him becoming Sasuke except for shitposters.
No, Baku is just fucking shit. A screaming screeching autist with no likable traits. Just when you think he's made a change he gets another scene where he yells with le angry rageface.
He's basically a secondary protagonist at this point and he's annoying as fuck.
Did you not read the last 3 chapters? He literally says what his problem is.
As children, Deku was a fucking scrub that constantly tagged along despite getting bullied by Baku all the time. Sort of like an annoying younger brother.
And now, Deku suddenly surpassed him out of nowhere, offering him help and shit.
Baku grew up thinking he will be the #1, and everyone, including Deku, supported that belief.
Then Baku gets kidnapped, and as a direct consequence All Might loses his power in a desperate fight. Baku blames himself for it (and honestly, this is great writing for Baku. People can hate on him all they want, that line came totally out of left field and gave him a lot more depth).
>As children, Deku was a fucking scrub that constantly tagged along despite getting bullied by Baku all the time. Sort of like an annoying younger brother.
>Why was he ever mad at Deku to begin with?
>to begin with
>Well maybe his parents are shit at least?
>Nope they're loving and mostly goofs
He has no reason to be the way he is other than being an unlikable asshole, yet the author keeps shoving him down our face as if we're supposed to respect this character or not. Him winning the latest fight was a complete joke.
Huh? I have no idea who that is. This is literally my first time posting my opinion about Baku. I've hated him from the beginning but mostly stay out of BNHA threads.
Surprise, more than one person hates the character.
that's not it at all, he felt threatened because a kid he thought was useless extended a helping hand at him, that's how insecure he is
all might said he "feared midoriya's spirit" which is frankly pathetic
I don't mind Baku, but people are allowed to hate characters for whatever reason they want to.
Baku already didn't like him before that incident in the woods. At least that's the order we're being shown things.
>>Hori explains it several times
You realize that people can give shitty reasons for things, right? Are you that fucking autistic that you think just an explanation, regardless if it's an actual good one, is good enough? Kill yourself.
I find it hard to believe that you fuckers can't understand someone being an unapologetic dick for no reason
>Baku already didn't like him before that incident in the woods.
he had a low opinion of him and was already a bit of a dick to him but he seemed to tolerate him, it's after that incident he goes full autist
it's obvious what triggered him was the feeling deku looked down on him and thought he could surpass him, that's flat out what he said like three chapters ago
On the left,
highest ranked girl in Japan (most popular with a vocal minority of ugly women).
On the right,
highest ranked girl in America (most popular with guys, aka the majority of the fanbase).
Bakugou is a fucking cunt. He's an arrogant bully and I wish I could shove him into the mud. One of those faggots who think's he's sooo talented but then goes to uni and learns he's at the high end of average.
Pic unrelated, she's just too sexy for words. I usually don't like sluts but she's irresistible.
IMHO Hori was unable to handle the potential of the manga at the early stage. Its quick as shit pacing didn't really help him that much
There were two clear directions near the end of the first volume:
>The manga will be a comfy school SoL with bits of action which will unfold slowly but steady
(as preferred by >>151627495)
>The manga goes full speed because "MUH fear of being axed". There will be a lot of danger and it should be darker than the average shonen.
(as preferred by >>151627244)
Current situation is not enjoyable for neither of both parts. And that's a problem as a result from decisions of two years ago.
Two classes of 20 students each was a fucking mistake. You either have just 1 class in heroics with 15 fuckers or two of 10 students each. That's a proper number of characters.
That's how you make us care about all of the 15 students of the heroics department at U.A. or how you make important the interaction between classes. But it didn't happen.
The only way out Hori has is to keep destroying
the fucking status quo and going darker. There's no way back.
Bakugou is legit my favorite character. I didn't realize why I liked him so much until I compared him to torodoki. Torodoki is a silent weirdo with famillial issues. Bakugou is an asshole who gets shit done. Also, he's a jihad's wetdream. Who doesn't want that kind of ability?
He has an inferiority complex. Think "with great power comes great responsibility" but a little altered. With his great quirk, he puts a lot of pressure on himself to become the best. And then he sees Deku with no quirk have the same resolve and dreams and rationalizes that Deku thinks he's so good he'll become the best hero without a quirk. Baku stopped really bullying him after the slime incident anyway. He's just angry at himself that Deku is doing just as well as him without a quirk/just got one bc he puts alot of pressure on himself to be better than that bc of his quirk.
Great comparison. Todoroki is a stupid poopyhead. I don't care for his lame family issues and background at all!
Bakugou, on the other hand, is exciting and cool and has no baggage at all! He just is mean because he is.
>Bakugou is an asshole who gets shit done.
yeah like getting a nice haircut from best jeanist, getting kidnapped and failing the provisional exam license
meanwhile at least todoroki contributed to stain's arrest
>The only way out Hori has is to keep destroying
>the fucking status quo and going darker. There's no way back.
That kinda goes without saying. It's pretty hard to tell us how Deku "became the greatest" hero if everything will stay nice and rosey all the time.
Shit has to go down hard or the readers will not be satisfied at the end of the series.
Concerning the SoL bits, I wouldn't mind a spin off Manga for that by a different artist. Like, put the focus entirely on Class 1-B, because they don't do much anyway.
>kid claims he will be a great hero
>shows no signs of it
>literally the worst candidate possible by middle school
>gets in top school
>can do stuff he never even tried to when growing up
>improving at an absurd rate
>talking more shit than ever
You are lying if you say something like that wouldn't bother the fuck out of you
His behavior changed though.
Before Deku gets his powers, Baku just mocks and bullies him.
After Deku gets his powers, Baku just insults him now and then and tries to fight him.
Because deku was literally inferior to everyone. Baku treated everyone like shit anyway. Deku just got more of it because he was the worst yet still claimed he would be a hero
he actively went after him because he was such a bitch he felt threatened by a fucking helping hand and so he had to make sure to assert his dominance over deku by fucking with his ambition
honestly it'd have been better if he had just been an arbitrary bully, the attempt to give an actual justification is why he's such an annoying character
I don't get how he can show his face after getting raped by a blob monster and looking so pitiful even Deku could tell he was scared.
This followed by getting kidnapped by villains and crying tears of joy when his green haired prince came to his rescue.
I mean holy shit, for a "badass" he sure does go down like a bitch.
I don't particularly care for Jirou but I really like her half asleep expressions
I never understood the insane pride military types have for their job. They applied for a job and got training for it like any other job. They just gotta berate any inconvenience addressed by people as civilian woes.
We haven't had a draft for decades so no one forced them to go through shit.
He's a dick with a big ego and didn't want help, especially from the biggest scrub he knew. What's hard to understand? Did he have to constantly fuck with him? Not really but that's what bullies do. Sounds to me like you and most baku haters just don't like that he was a bully with a big ego who is now a hothead with a big ego.
Its funny how people forget, for the longest time soldiers were considered the scum of society and barely a step above common thugs
When people say "thank you for your service" I think "you're thanking me for running a lot, sitting in air conditioned offices, jacking off, making camel spiders fight scorpions, and hearing the odd gunshot every few weeks?"
>What's hard to understand?
are you genuinely retarded? what makes you think l don't understand his reasoning and motivation? l think it's stupid and makes him look completely insane
it'd have been better if he just picked on deku because he could and thought it was fun and then learned that wasn't the ideal mindset to have for a hero instead of that half arsed backstory and cancerous rivalry we got
>people hate bullies
Golly gee, Batman! It's almost as if people don't like needlessly cruel people. There's a world of difference between picking on an obnoxious autist vs a shy kindhearted dreamy boy
Jirou is the only kind of girl who would date an /a/non
>shit taste in clothing
>fan of an obscure band
>skills below average
Jirou is the kind of 7/10 girl that most guys will go for because they want someone moderately attractive but are too intimidated by super hot girls
Seriously girls like her get more attention than you thin
Mina is pure.
I have never heard of that complaint. Sasuke has a depressing past that drives him away from his teammates. Bakugou's end goal is generally the same as everyone else. It's just his personality/ability that causes him to naturally disregard the destructive path he takes to achieve that.
Anon you seems tense here have a pony
Yeah I can because I'm actually in the army. About a third of people who join are rednecks who either
A) jingoistic lets-kill-foriengers type who never finish the mandatory reading material
B) join the army as a way to get their hands on more and bigger guns
The two thirds is lower class people at their wits end looking for a job. Then a small percentage military family/trying to impress daddy types who make up most of the special ops.
I'd say the government should target the people without jobs. Being in the military is easy as fuck and pays decently.
Froppy is old and busted, Toga is the new hotness
Would she still be as high if she was shown before froppy?
I agree that Hori missed potentials with student life hijinks, but things really isn't as bad as you claim.
The dorm room contest after the kamino ward arc were comfy as fuck and I can easily see Hori alternate between both tension and SOL
At least theoretically he should. He's set things up for a very enjoyable story I hope he doesn't fuck it up.
How dare you
I do like yandere but frog is still a best
TBQH this kind of details trigger me really easily... Since I'm an editor and shit. I've seen so much wasted potential in my career that you couldn't even imagine
>Concerning the SoL bits, I wouldn't mind a spin off Manga for that by a different artist. Like, put the focus entirely on Class 1-B, because they don't do much anyway.
That might be pretty interesting. Or maybe have it be SoL and worldbuilding with each chapter focusing on a different side character, so some class B, some minor heroes, some students in the other departments or schools.
You must be joking
>>friends with the richest girl in class
>>plays a musical instrument
>>goes to her world's equivalent of Harvard
>>child bearing hips
>>slim and not fat
She has nothing in common with /a/ and she's several leagues above average.
It was 4 chapters and I would probably have enjoyed it better if Hori shortened it to 3 chapters instead.
I'll be honest, I was pleasantly surprised by Bakugou's development in the past two chapters, but that's not enough payoff to worth them fighting a whole month
>risk my life
US military policy after Vietnam is don't fight anyone even close to your level. Even then we use drones. I mean for the war against terrorism the most advanced weapon the enemy had was the bicycle bomb.
On the topic of military, how do you think war works in this world? Are soldiers just able to freely use their quirks during shootouts? Do you go through a quirk screening in order to enlist?
Car bombs, IEDs and mines mostly. For the Iraq war against the Iraqi army backing Saddam about 1.5% of the commited troops died. In the period after its 0.000 something.
Causalities on the other side were much higher. About 33% of the Iraqi army died, a million troops. No official estimates but some peacenik NGOs estimate it around several tens of thousands non combatants killed from collateral (lack of medicine, clean water, sanctions et cetera)
I'm more curious about how people with quirks approach ordinary employment. Uraraka's quirk is very useful in a lot of situations.
Shigaraki can probably single-handedly manage 10% of Japan's plastic waste if he seeks employment in the waste management sector. Heck, if he becomes a hero he can becomes some kind of mascot for the green movement
The 40 students exist in tiers of relevancy but I think Hori himself is still figuring where he wants some of them to go. He clearly wants to do something with Kendou but hasn't found time yet. He wanted Iida at the forefront with Ochako, Todoroki, and Bakugou at first but has eased up on him significantly. The fact that most have received enough characterization to make us want to see more of them is this manga's gift and curse.
I would assume so. Heroes aren't the only people who can use their quirk if their job requires it. But I think it depends on the quirk at that point. A businessman wouldn't use the power to harness light energy when pitching something. On the other hand, Deku's chef dad can breathe fire, so it would probably be fine using his quirk in that setting.
That's why I would've preferred a considerably smaller cast. I mean most of Class B is completely irrelevant. At the moment there are just 3 "interesting" characters and one of them is a comic relief.
Class A too has their forgettable characters like Sadrock, Sugarman and Sero. In fact some nice designs get lost in the shuffle because of the class' overpopulation like Birdbro, Mina and Tentacle and they've worked better as part of another class or school. Same goes with either Bakugo or Todoroki.
Bakugou is hated by beta anons because of just how fucking alpha he is. He isn't like the burn victim with daddy issues. He takes what he wants, when he wants. He's the person scrawny weaklings should aspire to be but probably never will be.
Wait, so she draws little triangles below her eyes whenever she gets changed into her hero costume?
Rule of cool
Though, Denki honestly should be the one doing that if his electricity actually gets super bright, to help him see
Being a tapebro fag is nothing to be ashamed of. Neither being a Laserfag or a Tailfag. And yes. Is a fucking problem.
Fuck. if Sugar goes full Kinnikuman and starts making flashy wrestling moves I'll become the biggest Sugarfag ever. Same goes with Sadrock if he becomes more than a mere Eliza Thornberry.
Remember when Birb was BASED? He placed 3rd at the School festival.
And then at the School trip...
Shit man, Hori's so good at giving you just enough to keep you wanting more of the character.
>Tokoyami losing control in the forest
>Aoyama using his laser as a beacon to prove his worth
>Ojiro warning Deku about Shinsou's quirk
>Tsuyu getting to cry it out
The guy understands how to pique your interest. Hell even little things like including Momo and Kirishima in the crew that disguises themselves to save Bakugou help to make the world feel bigger.
Tokoyami is strong, he's just critically weak against anyone who can produce light. And shrouding himself in his shadow isn't much of a compensation for that weakness. If the dude actually trained his body or got a weapon, he could be two fighters in one.
Like you said, since the sketch had them, I'll say that she really does.
>has a tail
>will beat the shit out of you
Ambiguous tail situation aside, I don't remember her having this. After all, the only part of Tokoyami's body that is a bird is his head, and Tsuyu doesn't have webbed fingers or toes.
Hori probably wanted to hold him back a bit, if Deku had defeated Bakugou, he would've risen too far ahead of the rest of the class.
I think a happy medium would've been Bakugou winning in the end after being really beaten up by Deku
Apparently it's pretty normal for ugly Japanese chicks to put makeup on their face no matter what when they go out in public (in this case when she puts on her Heroin costume).
And still are.
Though I must point out, that righteous people make better killing machines.
Also, living in a time, when people worship thugs and thug behavior, watch TV dramas about murderers and criminals, claim that capitalism is the way when at it's core - can't function without exploiting labor and resources.
The point is, people are dicks, so there's no need to distinguish military as a special kind of dicks.
The only problem I have with Bakugou and the writing is that someone like him got inside U.A.
I dont give a shit about how great his abilities are, someone like him SHOULD NOT have passed the entrance exams since he's such an unstable little cunt. This bothers me especially because U.A. is supposedly such a prestigious school for heroes. Makes no fucking sense.
do we read different manga? The staff at UA is completely incompetent. Of course they're gonna let him in because he's so good at fighting.
Do you remember the entrance exam? Which was essentially just a video game, kill as many robots as you can? Baku did so, why should he not allowed in the school when he did what was asked of him?
And honestly, would you rather have Baku wandering the streets? In the school you can at least keep an eye on him and kick him in the sack if he tries something stupid.
Because eventually he's gonna have to become a Hero that protects people, not only blow shit up.
Lemme remind you that he failed the Hero license test. Why? Because he got in just because he knew how to blow shit up, and only LATER did the school remind itself that "Oh shit wait they need to care about saving people's life as well, so that Bakugou guy? yeah let's fail him he's not ready yet."
That's a waste of time, they could've easily held an assessment test for a student's mentality (or some shit) before they get into the school exactly to prevent something like that.
Depends on how you view Hori's skill with set up.
For example, either Hori has no clue what he's doing with Ochako, or he knows EXACTLY what he's doing with her and we're in for a wild ride
>would you rather have Baku wandering the streets?
I would certainly not prefer him being a professional Hero, so that sounds better, yes.
At least on the streets he would do something stupid and might end up in jail, that would spare everyone of his existence.
>That's a waste of time, they could've easily held an assessment test for a student's mentality (or some shit) before they get into the school exactly to prevent something like that.
Like I said, UA staff is incompetent. I will forever shit on them for the stupid exams.
I have to repeat it again because it pisses me off. Remember Stain? Remember that he went to a private school? Why does no one investigate that school?
What happened about the traitor plot? Why is that not the top priority? What is the point of sweeping it under the rug? If they don't resolve the situation, the villains will just attack them again and again.
Honestly, this is my problem with BnhA. The good side consists of bumbling retards that are unable to handle the situation. And it sucks because I know that they will win at the end. And they don't deserve it.
Do people still not know that we are reading about a manga where being heroes is a profession, there's a reason Stain exist, the word 'selfless' isn't stood by, because the 'heroes' in Bnha aren't exactly the same as your typical capeshit. Which is why Allmight is the uphold as the embodiment of 'heroes' in a world where the word 'heroes' has lost it's meaning.
It's only until recently that the world in BnHA, is starting to realise what makes a great hero, which is why they had the 'saving' aspect in the exam, and hence why Bakugou failed there and not then.
Excuse me but that's bullshit reasoning.
"The meaning of a true Hero" doesn't have anything to do with deciding to approve a literal crazy sociopath student with massive powers of destruction into your school of Heros, that's just plain stupidity, and in this case, bad writing.
I'm giving Hori the benefit of the doubt, because I'm looking at all the themes he's going for, and Bakugou being a symbol of relentless power can tell a good story if he follows up on the threads he's weaving with Deku, Ochako, and Todoroki.
But I could just be looking at nothing and reading into shit that isn't there. I remember when folks thought Toga wasn't gonna show up again but then she did as Kemi. Hori goes for a slow burn, but even slow burns can wear out their welcome. Let's see how he handles this arc.
It needs to alternate between school life and villain encounters. If they were just fighting villains the whole time then the villains would lose credibility as threats. It would make zero sense as well seeing as they are only first years in the school and there are real heroes to fight the villains.
Just because they aren't fighting real villains all the time, it does not mean the plot won't advance. We've just been shown how Bakugou may be starting to tolerate Deku a little more and him and Todoroki are both having to do make up lessons because of their previous actions. Both are developing as characters and they don't need to be fighting villains all the time to do that. Also, it's a manga about superhero highschool. The whole fucking premise demands that there be matches between students and we'd be complaining if there weren't.
Jirou has a rich rock star family
Momo is a super rich ojou-sama
Todoroki is rich because Endeavor is the #2 Hero
Iida is rich because prestigious hero family that hires many sidekicks
Bakugo's home looks uppermidclass but the rest don't seem above average from how impressed they were with the dorms.
Tsuyu looks like a poorfag from how both her parents have to slave away and she has to raise her siblings.
Ochako is a poorfag
You know that they usually have chapters plotted in advance and sometimes they will be a chapter ahead, right? It was probably written before the results of the poll even came in.
>cares only about appearances
I wouldn't be surprised if Aoyama was from a pretty rich family too.
>"The meaning of a true Hero" doesn't have anything to do with deciding to approve a literal crazy sociopath student with massive powers of destruction into your school of Heros, that's just plain stupidity, and in this case, bad writing.
He isn't a crazy sociopath and his aspirations are childish but heroic not to mention he is still a kid in school and not fully developed.
UA would have no reason to reject him when his behavior can be changed. They would see that he's just an egotistical, self-important child with anger management issues that needs to grow up and he is starting to already. He thought he was the best like any precocious little brat and he hasn't learnt otherwise because he has always been at the top of the class with the most powerful quirk. Now that he is in UA he starting to see that he isn't as special as he believed himself to be.
Which hero would make the best parent?
Not to mention, the students of Class A all knew each others' quirks, and Deku pointed out that the Villains in the USJ invasion didn't have any intel on their quirks. A teacher from a different class might not know.
You know what, that also works.
>the staff can be assholes because the rules allow it (playing rules fast and loose yet within reason)
>the students can be assholes under that staff's jurisdiction
Why doesn't All Might just say that he already found a successor? What is the point of keeping that fact hidden? He is supposed to be good friends with the Dog-or-whatever, so why is he lying to him?
And honestly, All Might seems kinda retarded in retrospect. He gave his power to some scrub kid that will need years of training before he can properly use it, despite knowing that he very soon loose the power himself.
So, what about the time between that? He ultimately doomed the society because he made a snap decision.
Deku must have reflected circumstances that Toshinori endured to earn One for All in Nana's eyes.
>a desire to see true justice
>a history of powerlessness in a society where power is 80% guaranteed to begin with
Bakugou would be one of those drunken sports dads who tries to live through his son and probably bursts into his room while he's with a girl and tapes his hands to her tits screaming "OH, BETTER MAKE SURE YOU DONT FUMBLE THESE EITHER!! LOSER!"
Kirishima would be a bro tier Tou-san. I imagine him has the goofy sort who likes embarrassing you and telling corny jokes. He'd let you drink beer when he judges you're the right age and shows you how to be "manly".
Deku would be a very nurturing sort of dad who'd instill you with a deep moral sense. He'd function like a wise guide but step in if you met with something you can't handle alone.
Icy-Hot would love you dearly but would be rather awkward and mostly aloof. The sort of dad who held you up at an arms length as a baby when you cried and asked mom if he broke you. Definitely not a real shoulder to cry on, he'd just bluntly ask what's wrong and offer you solutions. He'd be very honest and straightforward with you "no, you can't have cookies because you'll get diabetes" or "no, you're not staying out past 10. It's a school night and the streets crawl with degenerates at that hour". You'd learn to read hella early too. He'd be a bit anxious about hurting you like his father hurt him.
Iida-kun = Tiger dad all day. You will rearn disciprine
I think it's standard in most shows to have a lovable asshole where you can love or hate him.
I think Baku fits it perfectly.
Best answer probably. She will take care of the little Minetas as the perfect housewife. Anything she needs (except food) she can create on the spot. Heck, she can even make toys for them.
Mineta himself can then do the hero work
and fuck his fangirls/groupies on the sideand be the provider of the family.
>Todoroki Is more similar to Sasuke
nice meme friend
BnHA's potential is still there. It's in the middle between muh regular shonen cliche and an standard shonen that's really trying to be something different.
So it's time for the manga to completely embrace gray morality
>some top tier superhumans going full vigilantes
>villains/heroes switching sides
>organised groups following their creeds
(maybe some anti/pro Quirk fundamentalists or segregation by some standards -mutants, elemental users-)
I'm not saying at all that Hori should ripoff some of the most iconic capeshit themes but come on. It is really interesting to read how Hori is gonna face such tradition.
>it's time for the manga to completely embrace gray morality
I'd rather Deku continue being a goody two shoes and have the manga be a study of the consequences that come from sticking to your guns
Feels good to have a civil discussion thread
If you could pick one (1) minor character to get more focus, who would you pick? For me it's a three way tie between Sadrock (because his quirk could be very powerful if used correctly), Sero (because he's cool), or Pony (to find out more about the American hero system).
He is, or was:
>Le "you're on my way, move" character
> Quiet, grimdark face expresion
Thankfully he gets character development and gets rid of this after his fight against Deku
So? He's been non-Sasuke more than Sasuke-like in the manga. In fact he started getting focus in the same arc where the change happened.
Calling him Sasuke is ridiculous, it's like saying Deku is 'weak' because in the past he had no quirk even though he's had super strength for the last 120 chapters.
I just came back home so I'll reply to you.
>UA would have no reason to reject him when his behavior can be changed.
U.A. has to have some kind of standards, by your logic every person with a quirk can be accepted into the school because they can "develop".
Unfortunately it doesn't go this way, you either live up to the basic expectations or you dont. In Bakguou's case he's so out of the expectation radar that one has to wonder how the hell he got in if you put aside how strong he is.
>poor communication skills
>is rude as fuck to everyone around him
>not showing any signs of interest in his surroundings
>eager to blow shit up
I wouldn't have a problem at all if the school was a second rate Hero school that just takes whatever kids into its program, but the fact that they keep Bakugou without expelling him, let alone even accepting him into the "Most prestigious Hero school" is ridiculous.
Bipolar todoroki > emo todoroki
I'm sorry about my boy Sero or cannonhead Kinnikuman Sugarlips but Ojiro needs this.
He is always around, seems reliable and is a really hardworker. Also this:
"I know this is a great opportunity. And I know how stupid it must seem to throw it away... but this final tournament... everyone else made it here by their own strength. Yet I'm standing here, and I don't even know how or why. I just can't take it."
Tailbro is based
Deku is fine as he is. That's why in a full gray situation he shall shine even brighter. Although Bakugou or Todoroki going vigilantes would be a mistake.
As you said "the consequences that come from sticking to your guns" is what makes Stain a remarkable character and what could distinguish BnHA aside from the others.
>visual kei haircut
Is school back in session soon? These underage posters are annoying.
I'm really hoping Toga has her way with Deku
Would it be better if she captures him and has him locked up or if they meet out in the open?
>It was a safe but satisfying farewell to an enjoyable and fun series that…will actually return this spring! But this time in an even more mainstream TV timeslot due to the untimely death of the Nichigo slot it belonged to, presumably twice as long and with a way better production schedule.
After Naruto's popularity it became a knee-jerk reaction to shounen rivals. Bakugo and Sasuke aren't alike in personality at all. Bakugo developed a superiority complex from being told how awesome he is at everything, but is at heart, similar to Deku, as both idolize all-might and want to be the best hero ever. Sasuke's motivation is revenge, but little besides that, which is why he became kinda boring at the end of part 1 and totally retarded at the end of part 2.
everytime I see Toga I think
>there she goes, Hand banana
but I have to admit, she is a lot smarter than she looks
at least she knows when to fold them
what horrors has he witnessed, what's his quirk
>if he even has one
I also would like some more neutral characters
besides innocent bystanders
I think it's nice to have seen more of Twice, who can't really help it
>and needs psychologicalk help more than running with the bad guys
but then there are the other villains who just really have the need to kill or steal, or hurt others
you'd think some 'villains' would just drop everything at some point because they just can't stand working with those others anymore
>I might be a thief/murderer but at least I have standards!
Those punches were pulled like fuck
If a 100% punch can literally change the weather, then 8% of that put into a kick should be like getting hit by a full speed truck
Although ofa's power is a but vague in terms of actual power output, since there is still the plus ultra factor
With this is mind, just how much more durable is bakus body?
It's not ever officially stated in the manga, but quirks have to have subtle changes on anatomy and stuff like that, right?
Bakus hands are thicker in order to not be burnt to a crisp every time he uses his quirk, but do you think his actual body manifested stronger endurance as a by product?
Take stain for example, his actual quirk just involves his tongue, but his physical body looks much different than the average person. Same applies to his actual face. This is also the case for sad rock Do you think that he and bakugou both have a psuedo 'mutation' type quirks where the body is sliiightly above that of a normal humans body? Cause even stain is waaay to beast for his own good, taking out multiple high ranking heroes single handedly. He appears to have more than just average strength, being able to cut through solid ice mid air with relative ease
Man you guys suck ass at legitimate conversation. There are like, a few good posts, but wtf it always degenerates in shit posting or asking stupid ass questions like ^^
You guys are too much, never change /a/ hahah
In a surprise twist, Mineta
I worry about the mangaka's mental health.
Judging from the All Might fight and hell even this fight with Deku, Bakugou seems to be able to take quite a lot of punishment before being put down. All Might had to beat him to sleep after he had already blown his own hands to kingdom come just to get him to stop fighting.
Yes. Gay marriage isn't recognized in Japan and legal partnerships are only recognized in a few areas IIRC, so most homos adopt their lover so they can be in the same family register. Because it's straight-forward enough to do this, it should be almost as simple to adopt a child. So for a homo who 'married' his spouse by adopting him, you could say that if they adopted a kid, the adopted dad would also be the kid's adopted brother.
Adopting your buttbuddy sounds weird as fuck desu.
Probably got downscaled from some fuckhuge 6000x8000 file.
If that's your gay preference, sure. They'd probably have to go through a long background check and have a social worker visit to see if their home was suitable in order to get a kid.
Is Ochako THICC? She's always seemed just slightly plump to me.
I like to think Deku is into voluptuous girls cuz Freud.
>that one nip was right about pony one year ago
>have troubled child
>his hands are grenade launchers and he's a combat genius
>stronger than 99.9% of the population
>HURR WHY WOULD A SCHOOL TRY TO FUCKING NURTURE SOMEONE LIKE THIS
>THEY SHOULD FUCKING KICK HIM TO THE CURB AND OSTRACIZE HIM SO HE BECOMES A VILLAIN BECAUSE HE'S A DICK
>I WAS BULLIED IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND NEVER GOT OVER IT
Yes, we even know her quirk or at least the name of her quirk.
Everyone who dislikes Bakugou is a shitposter, unless they're nice about it and willing to agree in the end that they're wrong and Bakugou is actually a great character.
End of line.
Jirou's dad took her mom's name, and it's more normal than it is today. Social issues have probably progressed as well.
Tho we're probably not gonna see any of the kids be The Full Gay™ here because Jump. Maybe two moms at most.
I disagree, but your opinion is your own and I respect that.
My reasoning is more how well grounded in he is in MHA's universe. He's a bully, and no one justifies it. Instead he gets teased by his classmates. Everyone is like "WHAT THE FUCK?" when he makes that speech at the sports festival. He's a dick, he's stubborn, and he's treated as such. They acknowledge his strength, but that doesn't make everyone swoon over him a la Sasuke.
His actions also have consequences, but also make sense given his personality. He chooses to stay at the back of his entourage despite all indications pointing that it's a FUCKING STUPID idea? He gets kidnapped because of it. And then All Might loses his powers in the resulting battle. And he REALIZES it and it eats away at him because he's never learned proper coping mechanisms because he's never had to face anything that serious that could directly be traced as HIS fault. I like and his brain is fun to pick at.
On the other hand, what I find to be the weakest part of him was his Origin chapter. It happened just so fast it felt weirdly flat compared to everything else. Todoroki's was a nice amount of pressure that broke into an epiphany. Bakugou didn't have that buildup, which one would expect given his importance in the story.
Tl;dr: His concept is an arrogant childhood friend/bully (pretty standard for a shonen rival character), but dang, his execution is great.
daily reminder that the hero system in America or any other country wont be discussed because its irrelevant to the story
and thats okay with me
>Pony has been introduced specifically
>She's an obvious gaijin and speaks awful Japanese
Oh we're getting it alright.
Im so glad most people in this thread is not writing comics or manga,if theyre too retarded to understand how great baku is as character then imagine what awful shit writing they would make
...good thing the selection processes for the peeps operating behind the "booya! ima b a special forces gate guard and operational replenishments convoy specilist." tend to weed out trigger happy murderers.
100% those units may contain a higher percentage than the mean of direct descendants of previously proven and known to be competent in terms of track record and judgement wrt character suitability- the apple doesn't generally doesn't fall too far from the tree.
oh dear pls excuse... you guys... happy new years advanced fishermen
>all American pro heros have the dark classic shading like All Might
All the threads are slipping down crazy fast today.
They did know he was supposed to be weaker, not why.
The traitor is someone who knows about his skelly form but not about one for all or the students quirks, the only thing unexplained would be how he knew his schedule but there could be ways to figure out that
Does anyone else feel like BNHA is somehow "lacking" something?
I dunno what it is, but despite it being well-written, well-dawn, and having far more complex characters than your average shounen, I just don't look forward to it every week like I do other series and I can't figure out why.
Maybe it's just the school setting, I dunno. Anyone else feel the same?
It's lacking a driving plot at the moment.
We just went through a training arc then an exam arc without anything really happening. The villains don't have any plans we're aware of yet (except the thing with Toga).
The last few chapters I haven't even bothered reading on release, because what's the point? It's not like I'll be spoiled by anything major happening.
Classic "rough girl actually likes the sweet but quiet/dorky guy" trope
I can't recall many specific examples but this wasn't exactly rare in old American teen comedies, "that 70's show" had that dynamic iirc
Well nips think we're all cowboys with blonde hair and blue eyes that speak in southern accents
This, it doesn't have muh saucegay, aizen, or pirate king. Sometime soon there is gonna be a major turning point, and we'll get the central plot element. Well, hopefully it's soon, because the timing seems right.
So if something like this ends up accurate, then beside the Sauron's eye laser we can presume she's also pretty quick and kicks hard?
I really want to see more of what 1B can do. That joint class can't come quick enough.
Happy New Years faggots!
Death to all Fujos!
We never saw her hooves or tail until this chapter and the twitter doodle with Yui.
Hori was so focused on not getting canned at the start that he completely skipped out on breathers and worldbuilding early on. We're so used to 110% HYPE being the standard that everything else seems boring now.
It's led to a catch 22 where people will keep being burned out on the hype if he keeps going strong, but will be craving DAT HIGH TENSION if it's not there. I can pretty much guarantee that everyone would've been on board with the exams, but would've then complained about the tournament if you switched their places in the story.
There's really no way around it unless Hori keeps up the SOL for awhile to let us detox.
I don't think a lack of "hard plot" is the problem. It's just that the exam arc was boring (imo).
It had a bunch of new characters that I don't really care about, a bunch of meh fighting, etc.
I'd be totally on board for more SoL featuring all the existing kids (like the chapter where they showed their rooms).
I know you're trolling, but it's really interesting how Kacchan was initially portrayed as a character that could wind up just like Endeavor in adulthood. They even both seemed to share the idea that power was everything and PR meant nothing.
But he's getting all this character development. He overheard Todo's backstory (and was visibly shaken). He's now aware of OfA and is gonna keep that secret. And these supplementary lessons are gonna make him at least able not to be a gigantic asshole to civilians.
>Implying Endeavor even cares anymore
He's #1 now. He only raised Shouto to be #1 because he himself knew he couldn't do it.
He literally has no reason to do ANYTHING now.
>Endeavor wants Todoroki to become the best hero.
Endeavor wanted him to be capable of defeating All Might. That's it.
It's the only thing he saw as important. He was beating his kid at 5 years olf for it, for Christ's sake.
>I know you're trolling, but it's really interesting how Kacchan was initially portrayed as a character that could wind up just like Endeavor in adulthood.
He actually has never been portrayed like that. Fags were just forcing this. There has only been a Endeavor-Shouto parallel, and it doesn't mean much.
How does that contradict that he wants him to be the best hero? He is not just training him to get stronger, which is why he took him under his wing during the Stain arc. He is teaching him everything to be the best.
That guy from the other school had such a bland design, he looked exactly like a smiling version of some class B dude with tournament's Monoma's personality.
