>>153090958
Not him but Chimera Ant ruined HxH for me.

The Ants were awful antagonists: they were an unforshadowed threat that escalated too fucking quickly and got too damn dark. Meruem was a Gary Stu with no personality. Kite was introduced only to be useless and get immediately killed... then he becomes a girl. Gon was a good for nothing who accomplished jack shit. Meruem was "defeated" in the most asspull way possible. No Hisoka, no Kurapika, no Spiders... instead we get a wannabee Kuwabara and some pussies. Every single thing about Chimera Ant sucked.

Battle Shonen suffers from the power level thing only because the MC keeps getting stronger and the supporting cast usually stays the same. Look at Dragon Ball. Everyone is a jobber except Goku. Even Vegeta.
>>
>>153089899
This, but long-running shonens already end with a powerladder of:

Start using pre-existing universes, but don't use any old characters. This whole idea that if you use the same world for a show, it must be a sequel or a prequel and it must all have the same characters and tie into the same story as the original. This is fucking bullshit. I didn't want to watch naruto's princeling child do some boring crap, I want a whole new story with a whole new village in a whole new time with the same universe. Think about all the good shonen we could pump out doing original stories that aren't all just copies of the original. It would really allow you to flesh out the more interesting universes.

I think it was still more or less fine up to the Cell saga.

Am I the only one who enjoys interesting and inventive training arcs? I feel like it's so easy to do horribly and make it boring as shit, but if you do it right, you get a great sense of progression in the character.

Why is it so hard to accept that Bakugou is just that good? The manga goes an extra step to convey to the audience that not only is Bakugou talented but he's also smart and works hard to get the most out of his quirk.
>>
>>153094691
Yeah, this thing that there is not a limit to how much someone can get empowered lead what begin as a simple martial art/street fights manga to a battle of gods.
There is a redundant cicle of bad guys that look undefeatable, MC train again and beat him, so another stronger appear to make the cycle repeat.
I don't say that the characters should not acquire new skills during the story but they should rely more on their actual knowledges and skills like people do in reality. It would be beneficial to set a limit on how much a human body can achieve.

The combination of character-driven plot and cerebral fights with just the right balance between action, interesting abilities and insane strategy is what does it to me. Powerlevels are a hole many authors fall into, as much as I loved it in DBZ when I was a kid. Say whatever you want but some of the mangos/animus that have mastered this formula are imo Hunter X Hunter, post-stands Jojo, some chunks of Naruto and so far My Hero Academia

>>153097754
Araki's creation of Stands was an ingenious way to circumvent powerlevels and create a very interesting story dynamic.

Look at Part 4.

Kira's Stand far weaker in a straight fight than Jotaro's or Josuke's. And yet he can 1-shot people and erase them from existence if allowed to.

It creates fights based on strategy and cleverness rather than my ghost punches harder than yours.
>>
>>153101553
That's not because of Stands, though. The power system there is "everyone gets a random power" just like X-Men or whatever. The only innovation stands bring is that you get a ghost to cast it for you.
>>
>>153090906
For once they were actually hunting and being hunted by something and do their job.
The problem with that arc was that got in the way of the fucking eternal hiatus so that arc was around 9 years, so for almost a decade there was no Kurapika, Leorio, Hisoka, etc
Still, that arc had a great build-up, great characters(like damn Morau/rel) and strategy around nen.
>>
If gurren lagann counts then that's it. It is the ultimate power progression anime.
Between the early tournaments of Dragonball up until the saiyan saga or freeza arc is pure gold.

HxH, YYH, jojo and ippo are all favorites too.

Learn from Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer and Sengoku no Youko. That is to say, write with an ending in mind and keep combat within the scope of all major characters. The only time you take off that limiter is when you have the final battle. Then the series ends.

Goku falls in love with Goku.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the Sayajin's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well. After some investigation, he finds out that the boy he called is his alternate universe counterpart that's evil and killed his AU friends and family. Sort of like an evil twin.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of each other. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other and question the NATURE of LAZY WRITING.

>mfw I almost watched 5mins of a Saitama vs Goku powerlevel discussion video today

I am seriously dumbfounded at how retarded people are. Not even mentioning the comment section, but just the video itself, even though I didn't even watch half of it, you could tell these people have completely missed the point of OPM as a concept.

I'm seriously perplexed at how idiotic some people actually can be. I could hardly believe it was an unironical video, maybe it wasn't and the twist would have been revealed at the end, but I doubt that.

The four pratfalls of all shounen are four things

1.Powerlevels that expand beyond the authors ability to concepeptualize them or adequately write with or around.

2.Completely throwing away internal logic for cheap reasons. This will outright shit tank a series harder then anything. Especially if it's a long running seriies.

3.Nonsensical powers. They have to be based on SOMETHING. Also Esoteric powers with nothing based in reality is oft fairly shit.

4.The Hero gets too much focus at the expense of the other characters, even the world.
Things I'd like to see?
Power levels being steady and consistent.

Skill overcoming skill and even power level.

BUT overwhelming power being beaten by a shitty keikkaku that seems like an outright asspull is bullshit no matter what.

Training that makes sense, just basic exercise and meditation and approaching basic dieting advice and tie it into the type of exercise Some of the coolest moments in shounen are the training montages. It's something very deep and primal.

Super forms/serious face. Those are not a dirty word, they're actually rather cool and are an outward manifestation of internal growth change degradation etc etc. Simply handwaiving them is ridiculous.

World building that makes sense with context of the world plus people and places that have their own things going that have nothing to do with the MC but seem just as important somehow.

Power levels that will always stay at a certain level and getting to it or going beyond it will always come at a cost.


No special people, no born gods, no ultimate super powers born from a special gene or bloodline. Everyone starts at zero and while some people have some potential towards certain skills because
Born with it(yes this seems hypocritical but you get what I mean)
Lived a life that indirectly trained them for it(someone who lifted heavy things their whole life and lived a life that helped them become better at it etc etc)
Everyone else trains for it.

Most of the shit in this thread is generic as fuck. What a worthless comment.
>>
>>153121763
Why?
Would actually show that Deku deserved it rather then just be a kid that was lucky enough to catch a depressed Allmight on a bad day.

Make more of them like Original DB and HxH.

>Show growth in the cast, both physical and psychological

>No powercreep bullshit or forms on forms on forms

>actually make char deaths meaningful and don't just throw the characters that have outlived their use in the story into a blender like HxH did fuck you the Chimera ant arc sucked

Most of the stuff mentioned in this thread at least has the excuse of being written before the 2000s. There's no reason for something so generic to get any attention in the current era.
>>
>>153121763
then tell me how many tournaments did they have in the manga? I'll be legitimately surprised if its less than fucking 3
>>
>>153122205
Deku proved it by being the only one who went out to save Bakugou despite having no quirk
>>
>>153122116
Fully fleshed out cast.
Not just the people who are powerful enough to beat the current end boss but people who can bring something to the table and can even use the current crisis as a way to evolve in their own way.

Literally fucking one you stupid fuck

Yeah they and they were called generic back then too. What's your point?

They also mentioned fucking DB.
Just ignore them.

>>153122417
I would assume he meant early Dragonball which is still stupid because of this
>>153122231
>Show growth in the cast, both physical and psychological
Since the early Dragonball was practically a gag manga

1. Fleshed out and developed characters. You need to these and that's where many fuck series fuck up because they just Copypaste a character from another series personality. This means keeping your main cast to 5-8 characters at most and not letting "popularity" votes sway who gets screentime.

2. Power Levels within reason. You need to scale slowly but surely, but never succumb to easy storytelling by making someone anything greater than a city buster.

3. Good pacing in terms of arcs and fights. Arcs need to be functional at a reasonable pace. The maximum an arc should be is around 40-55 chapters, until it's the final arc in which a 85-95 chapters is okay. The opening story arcs should appear episodic and short (5-10 chapters) but ultimately all build up to the first big arc.

4. Don't break your own rules. Your story is a setting in which you're making people believe something is real that isn't. Breaking your rules ruins that.

He's been at that for decades.
He can't be the only kid on the planet who's ever done that.
