Losing the Plus Ultra...

Rating: 5.0 / 10.0
I really like superheroes, however we all know the flaws about them in comics and sadly is already happening here.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Extra Power Ups, flashbacks with plot holes, foreseeable turns of events, nonsense drama, jokes in bad moments, fillers and forced extension of story. The bad taste I feel, is like when you love the first movie and the sequel make you want to forget about it.

We got a good oneshot, a nice prequel, and great anime, I gonna give a hold and read again later, hoping for a great future or nice conclusion after this chaos.

Anime over Manga  
by ReyKaNeel
January 11th, 2020, 5:50pm
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
In most cases I like the manga better than the anime. Here, however, I find the anime better and, exceptionally, the dub better than the original version.

If I had to give reasons, then I perceive more feelings in the anime than in the manga. In some places the Manga is "choppy". In conclusion the emotions/story aren´t conveyed flawless. Also the Anime is flashy and suits the Heroes very well!

Despite the constant introduction of quirks and stuff x)
Plz enjoy watching! :3

Typical Shounen

It's really a typical shounen manga. A boy with a huge big dream yet not perfect suddenly get a power because of his "NOT GIVING UP" attitude. Reminds me of Naruto, except instead of ninja, it's heroes. Not bad actually, I like the character developments and the art too. It is indeed a typical shounen manga, but meh... I these characters, so will keep reading.

After the Eri's arc I actually thought the author previous work is Hitman reborn but I was wrong, the first 100 chapter was good the battle is exciting but then as it drag it grow so similar to hitman reborn, where the hero are just getting random power up instead of actually using what they currently have, the battle also choreographed people suddenly leave behind to stall for no damn reason, people charging ahead even thou there's really no need to, most of the character changed from actual human behavior to just some happy go lucky side character.

I hope the author could change direction,and go back to what it used to be but it probably wont happen.

A typical shounen manga with a main lead that spits out lecture here and there, brainwashs everyone he encounters and wins the world by the classic "never give up" spirit. The other characters are also quite bland. Maybe except for Tokoyami and his quirk "dark shadow" - pretty unique. To sum it up, it's the same old material but the author add some extra patches to make it looks more logical, less obvious bias/shallow than our previous shounen manga. Midoriya is like a mix of Gon HxH and Tsuna KHR - unsurprisingly I don't like them both. Anyway, super natural is always fun to watch, so the manga is pretty refreshing at the moment, but it's just that. I don't think I will remember much about the series once it ended.

To be honest i was born with no skills and I have seen bunch of people who are perfect at everything they do even if they had school they would not put any effort and they would be perfect at it, well this manga made me feel like I can do anything, is something weird but they only got one quirk and they need to train it so it becomes an asset for when they become a hero. You might think DBZ, Naruto, one piece are the masters over there and I won't say no to them, I like the old school too, but i think if a manga makes you feel something then it means the author did a good job.

Mediocre

Rating: 5.0 / 10.0
Characters are the essence of any story and any manga, in this case the chars are the worst aspect by far, maybe some secondary ones are decent but for the most part the main ones are just a bunch of spoiled and one way or another, annoying brats, above all Bakugo that's can't seam to say something without shouting and insulting and the main char is like a pathetic version of Gon from HxH and just like that retard, instead of having to pay for his narrow-mindedness, selfishness and rashness he's priced and gets his way. As the story progresses you'd expect some maturity and development but so far and over 100 chapters in I'm sadly disappointed, and I think I'm bored of it already (140ch give or take).
In short, it's got some good moment and good fights but I find it's constantly held back and even spoiled by those chars.

What a rich story!

A huge cast of characters, all have their personalities and faults and quirks (pun intended) with a thick plot that keeps getting thicker and thicker.
Layer after layer, failures and growth, and sometimes no growth happens! All characters are different, and they all have varied outlooks, goals and train of thoughts!
At first I didn't have any expectations for this manga, but now that I am deep in it, O just can't stop it! It really deserves all the praise in the world!

And the universe of this story is so well developed that you feel like it is reality! I love how the author keeps writing down informations about that world on extra pages and as side notes, it really shows the extent of his imagination,

My Opinion on BNHA  
by ryu-kano
March 31st, 2017, 4:34pm
Rating: N/A
It's a pretty big problem of mine where whichever anime or manga I'm currently watching or reading is suddenly my new, absolute favorite of all time. The fandoms I'm constantly in are always increasing, you could even say it's a bad habit of mine. But this series? It's totally on a different level of "I'm definitely addicted".When I first ever heard of Boku no Hero Academia, I wasn't interested at all, but mostly it was because I was unconvinced of the originality in the plot and the fact that the main character seemed like such a joke and really quite laughable (his eyes! his EYES!). Looking back, I think it was a pretty stupid reason, but the point is, no one should judge this anime solely by its appearance. Yes, it's about becoming a hero, and yes, the main character starts off as a wuss and gradually matures and becomes amazingly strong.. but BNHA.. these superpowers are defined in such a way that they seem as if they are just one step ahead of present-day reality. And they are.
I, too, hated that Izuku Midoriya was a crybaby, and then suddenly met the greatest hero in the world, thus beginning on his journey to become a badass superhero, but you must understand that if something like this were to happen in real life, would we consider it cliche? Would we think, "Nah, this guy can't be for real.. he's just another weak-turned-strong MC"? It's true that that aspect could be questionable, but the process is what most people overlook right away. Most shounen would be along the lines of, "And so MC began to work harder and harder.. *timeskip* he is now undefeatable!". But in this series' case, Izuku's becoming a hero is tedious, realistic, and grueling-- more like something that might happen in real life. At every turn, Midoriya is willing to take a new perspective into account, a new technique to sharpen his skills, a new opponent to help him become a more seasoned fighter in the world of heroes. Is that enough? It's better than just becoming zero to hero in two to three episodes.
I would also like to mention really quickly Izuku's character in general. Usually a shounen depicts its MC as someone who is a dumbass and clumsy and an idiot in everything he does-- wait for it-- except in combat. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Kohei Horikoshi is at least willing to add in some characteristics that define Midoriya but aren't necessarily likable. For example, Izuku is constantly labeled as a fanboy. He also frequently becomes flustered and a huge mess in front of girls. Another type of shounen MC would have to be a Gary- or Mary-Sue. Can I just tell you how much I hate those types of characters are perfectly perfect in every single way imaginable? Their hair, clothing, body, everything is on fleek 24/7, they have the perfect social/love life, they have great friends, a great family, no flaws, no worries, no problems, absolutely nothing negative in their life. If there ever is someone like that in real life, be sure to introduce them to me. Then I'll punch them in the face.
Moving on, Izuku's fated encounter is totally overpowered by several other key traits of the series. With how the setting is set up, any Quirk is possible-- can we please get Marvel out of our heads? Super-speed, , telekinesis, telepathy, flight, invisibility, super-strength.. yes, way beyond the textbook powers. Let's talk "Dark Shadow", "Permeation", "All for One", "Metamorphosis".. THAT is what you call unique and innovative. Can we also go over the degree of realism that's presented with each superpower? Like "permeation", for example. That means the user can pass through anything and everything. Sounds flawlessly simple, right? Well, passing through everything also means.. passing through air. So you can't breathe. That and the fact that you won't be able to see, or smell, or hear, or feel anything. Like my example, every single Quirk has a certain amount of repercussions (well, except for Katsuki's, but then again, no one can really explain what's going on with him) for a more down-to-earth type of vulnerability. You can't really say anyone in the story is invincible.
Can we say how much popularity Boku no Hero Academia is getting versus how much it actually deserves? The artwork is breathtakingly simplistic in some ways yet admirable, while other times it's the downright definition of detailed and sophisticated. The plot is unexpected, carefully planned out, and, to be honest, has the perfect amount of angst, cliche, and beauty. Most of the main and supporting characters are versatile, dynamic, and most importantly relatable on a mental level.
With that being said, I have two minor constructive questions. How in the world did Hagakure pass the Yuuei entrance exam, let alone get into Class A? Why is it that All Might is so willing to spill out the secrets behind his appearance to a boy (Izuku) he just met? But to sum it all up, if you don't watch Boku no Hero Academia or read the manga.. what can I say? You're seriously missing out.

Classic Shounen  
by JapanRocks
January 27th, 2017, 3:08pm
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
It feels so fresh and freeing. It's a straight to the point, no nonsense shounen and it doesn't pretend to be anything else.
We get a cast of characters in the first few chapters and the rest of the story is just developing them and getting to know them and what makes them tick. The author perfectly paces the character development with the overall plot of the story so there's a good mix of action and character progress. It's been a long time since I've naturally learned the names of characters. Usually I can manage the main character and a few supporting ones. Here there's 20 in our main class and I've got their names, skills and personalities down pat by the latest chapters. It makes reading the interaction between them very fun. And that's not even counting the excellent cast of professional heroes and villains. I feel tied to the characters and I look forward to watching them grow as the story continues. There've already been some chapters where I smiled with real pride, joy and excitement, shocking me from how affected I was. That's all I can ask from a fictional story.

It's just a really fun to read this story. There's nothing terribly new here, nothing ground breaking. It's just a really, really well done shounen. If you like shounen and all the tropes it involves then you should be (and probably are) reading this. If you hate shounen then this won't make you love the genre. But if you are looking to get into shounen then I highly recommend you start here. Plus props to the author for avoiding some of the most common shounen tropes, like a MC who's a dumbass in everything but fighting or a MC that has a black hole for a stomach.


Side Rant: The author likes to do a really cliche writing trope that I absolutely hate. It's along the lines of making the characters monologue "I'll come to regret this decision in the future." or "This was the last time we had fun together like this." It's freakin' annoying, and he does this several times. To any aspiring writers- Don't do this! Don't tell your readers this kind of forced foreshadowing thing. Let them find out what happens naturally. You remove a lot of anticipation by spoiling your own story. Don't do it! Rent end.
