Super Fun

I was really hesitant to read this at first because most shounen is kind of boring and predictable, to put it bluntly. That's why I was so surprised at how quickly I became invested in the story and the characters, and while Academia does indeed have many of the hallmark tropes of the genre it also has a lot of heart. I also love the way the powers in this series work, they're superpowers so the author can go wild making up whatever he wants. It reminds me of devil fruits from One Piece in that regard, though I do prefer the powers from this series mostly because they feel more prevalent to the story.

Pacing is one thing I really like in this comic, there's very few chapters where it feels like things are stagnating and nothing is happening. Fights usually last around 3 chapters at max, and all the time there's a real feeling of progression and escalation that keeps you on the edge of your seat as a reader.

I've heard some people complain that Izuku is a bit too much of a crybaby for them. I can understand to a degree, but that's never really bothered me for two reasons. First, I can understand his feelings. I mean this world has 80% of the population with powers, just imagine how much it must suck for the other 20%. It makes me recall the movie Gattaca, where those who are not genetically enhanced are pretty much screwed when it comes to getting jobs and such, because who would hire a non-enhanced person when you could hire someone made better? So with Izuku I can already imagine that he's devastated but knowing that it's also his dream to become a hero really made me sympathize with him early on. Heck the flashback stuff with Izuku's mom made ME cry a little. The second reason his crying never bothered me is because you have to have a foundation to build a character on. If he was strong and brave from the start then we'd have a lot less reason to care when he IS strong and brave, basically. I actually enjoy reading about a character like Izuku more than a character like say, Luffy from One Piece for example. Luffy is a great character but I don't really think he's all that realistic, and while realism is by no means a requirement in a fantasticical battle manga it does help.

There are some minor problems I have with the series, but mostly it's just nipicks. For one, I think that the "Class A" group could have been shaved down from 20 characters to 15 or even 10. Sure I do like them all and as the story goes along you do feel a real sense of comeradere amongst the class but some of the heroes are pretty much just background characters. Heck they could have just made Class A smaller and then folded some of those hero ideas into Class B, since some of them are kind of underutilized anyhow. Take the invisible girl for example, she's literally never done anything significant in the story yet in 120+ chapters. Does every character nessicarily need something to do in the plot? No, of course not. I just think that a smaller cast would have led to fleshing some people out more though it is cool seeing how the author comes up with so many powers.

Is this the greatest manga ever made? No, heck it's not even my favorite shounen (which is Fullmetal Alchemist btw). If you hate shounen, will it change your mind about the genre? Probably not. But I watched the anime for this series and it inspired me to catch up on the manga in a single day. It's fun, action-packed and pretty emotional. If you think you might like it give the series a shot, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

TBH I wasn't expecting much, it had a HXH feel going on. I orginally watched the anime, then read the manga after. But for this manga, it's fast paced, it's in your face at all times you have no time to breath you are right on the edge of your seat from the get go I like the character design, it's original, the character's are easily loveable, personality quirks and all. It's a great read and i'm happy that it's being made into an english release. It's one of those manga's you can re-read over and over without a thought!

Does no one feel a little betrayed since
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the whole point was that he had no quirk, and then he just gets one


Love the characters though, solid development.

Great characters

I have seen the statement of some people comparing it with other shonen like Naruto. I admit it is similar to a few manga for example One Piece in having diverse characters, well planned story and group dynamics. It might be called similar to Naruto in having thorough portrayal of fights and the visible use of cleverness and tactics but it does miles better than Naruto. Artwork is appealing especially when it comes to action and the group of characters is refreshing. Their development is well integrated in the story that it doesn't seem like a deliberate effort from the author and it is always emotive and make us identify with them. I haven't seen any character that comes in the limelight redundantly. They all have their part essential for the manga. Even the villains are interesting and tend to develop in time. Another thing is the characters themselves, their concept is refreshing. You don't feel like they have been copy pasted from other manga. Every friendship, rivalry, animosity naturally evolves without making us feel like they are forced. Likewise, the wisecracks, humorous conversations are naturally there as having such characters together.

All in all, in terms of characters, group dynamics, character development this manga is great.

Jump Titans, assemble

Shueisha recently found out how much superhero adaptations make these days. One-Punchline Man (it get´s better later) and this are the results. I have no strong opinions on either but both follow the popular DBZ formula fine and will delight casual anime/manga fans while making much-needed money for all involved. The art is memorable enough too, even if some of the character designs are a bit weird.
Avengers: The Initiative / Academy told this exact story better though. So recommend to read US comics to get the best out of the genre.

Not giving it a ten? Well, f*ck you too!

To be frank, this manga is FMA tier, that meaning - close to perfect (as of now).
It's not done yet, of course, but still, even a bad ending can't ruin it too much at this point.

A fun series, that's about it.

There's nothing new or revolutionary here. Typical weak to strong story, with plenty of cheesiness, power of friendship, and what not. The artwork is good (extremely good if you consider it's a weekly schedule), the girls look a little chubby, which is fine by me, but that can put off some guys who prefer the typical slim and cute appearance of girls in today's shounen, and the boys range from hot blooded guys to calm and calculating ones, typical.

But putting things together is rather well done (in their own cliches), that's about it. There's nothing bad here, but nothing that screams Greatness. It's a good and fun series to read, specially for a younger audience (-18), and that's what the shounen demographic is all about.

Would be a great introduction for a young lad who never has read a Shounen. But for older monkeys like me i just appreciate that it's a inoffensive work that will get younger people's blood pumping with each page. My first recommendation is and always will be Dragon Ball, as this was the work that defined the battle manga sub-genre for many generations, but this would be my third recommendation (After Hunter x Hunter) if the lad does not appreciate or just doesn't wanna read a classic.

Here we have a superhero series well done, I guess. Typical weak to strong, rivalry, a bit cheesiness and friendship + justice themes etc.
I think everything is pretty well done, but in the end there’s absolutely nothing new to see here. It’s a straight shounen, nothing special about the plot or the characters. I’d still recommend it though, especially for a younger audience or for people who are looking for 100% shounen and don’t mind the lack of originality.

'Boku no' rule

A friend of mine has made it a rule to never read anything with "Boku no" in the title, and what a shame. It is a great series. If you have the same rule, I think you should break it-- just this once.

It's been a while since any shounen has engaged me to this extent, and I don't know whether it's the simple, purehearted earnestness of one boy to meet his hero's expectations, or the mash of humanity and morals that are seen through the eyes of such an earnest, kind boy...but I am very eager to read more of this boy's journey to becoming a hero.
