    Kids with superpowers go to superhero school to be taught by existing superheroes how to be superheroes. So it’s the X-Men? Yup. Except way shittier! And that’s My Hero Academia! Boo! I give it an F! It really is that derivative, at least going by this first volume. Creator/writer/artist Kohei Horikoshi basically rips off the X-Men. He calls mutations/superpowers “quirks” in a feeble attempt to make it seem less blatant but that’s about the only thing different he brings to the table. This first Kids with superpowers go to superhero school to be taught by existing superheroes how to be superheroes. So it’s the X-Men? Yup. Except way shittier! And that’s My Hero Academia! Boo! I give it an F! It really is that derivative, at least going by this first volume. Creator/writer/artist Kohei Horikoshi basically rips off the X-Men. He calls mutations/superpowers “quirks” in a feeble attempt to make it seem less blatant but that’s about the only thing different he brings to the table. This first volume introduces us to our bland protagonist who doesn’t have superpowers but has a heroic heart - and that’s what matters youse guys, snore… - who, after a random act of bravery, gets picked by this world’s Superman, All Might (stupid name), to be his successor. Why? Reasons we’ll probably find out in later volumes. Very unsatisfying. After the generic superhero fights between equally generic and forgettably designed superhero/supervillain characters, come the still more generic training scenes as our protagonist undergoes months of physical exercise because All Might’s powers in his existing frame would kill him or something. Even though All Might in his true form is as skinny and weak as our protagonist is. So it doesn’t make any sense and that block of pages is pointless filler. Garbage. At Xavier’s Academy, I mean, “UA”, the dull cast is expanded with even more bland, unimaginative, archetypal characters like the contrived rival who hates the protagonist for no reason, the obvious love interest, and the tough but kindly instructors. Wrap up the terrible writing and awful storytelling with standard manga art and you’ve got a steaming pile of cliched, predictable nothing. My Hero Academia hasn’t got any clever observations on the superhero genre, nor any fresh takes, original ideas or even an entertaining story - it’s just an uninteresting, badly conceived/executed, tedious X-Men knockoff. My, what an overrated boring manga series!

    *3.5/5*This is a really fun manga, but I think it's better experienced as an anime! I did watch the anime before reading this so that could have affected my enjoyment, but I think the action and the humor just come across more naturally on screen. I don't think I'll continue reading this series, but if you haven't seen the anime I'd definitely recommend picking this up!

So as you can guess, a lot of potential for character growing: by mentally and by seeing his super power grows.So far no surprise yet. And as in other manga, I expect whole classmates of main characters will be explored.

    Despite all the manga I've racked up that is on my TBR, someone recommended this to me a couple of days ago and I read it all in one day. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great introduction to the series. I can say that I know I'm prime audience because I love hero stories. LOVE. While this is of course tasked with some of the leg-work of the introduction and while I did lose myself in the action (and how it was drawn) a few times, I thought the overall experience was worthy of a 4-star Despite all the manga I've racked up that is on my TBR, someone recommended this to me a couple of days ago and I read it all in one day.

While this is of course tasked with some of the leg-work of the introduction and while I did lose myself in the action (and how it was drawn) a few times, I thought the overall experience was worthy of a 4-star rating. Here are some of the positives: - I know he's kind of whiny but the MC is also a precious cinnamon roll. - "I'm so sorry" vs "you can be a hero" *cries forever*- The MC works really hard and yes he gets a little luck and a power but hardwork is there. - Obvs don't know where the series is headed, but I'm so happy the MC starts with some traditional hero qualities. None of this anti-hero mess. HERO! HERO! HERO! - The meta-jokes, especially about how All Might is drawn. Love. And so now I've got a cart of all 7 released volumes and two pre-orders and I'll one day make them all mine.

And of course he goes to a new school where his bully goes to too. And then there's a cute girl who quickly helps out the main character and becomes a friend to him (even though he has trouble talking to girls.)Despite all of those clichés it still feels like a somewhat refreshing take on the genre. The quality of the artwork helps with that as well.So, I can see why this is popular now. I just hope each subsequent volume keeps up the fast pace and that the story and battles don't become stale and boring.Random, but why Detroit Smash? 😄

But their body must be trained to control the power or it could kill them. Eventually, our young hero gets into superhero school where the book instantly becomes derivative of the X-Men or Sky High. The art is very good except I have a hard time getting past the over expressive faces Manga is known for. It drives me batty, especially when mixed in with an otherwise serious comic. Some of the hair styles are just ridiculous, "Yes, I'm talking to you All Might". The book was good enough I'd consider reading another volume just because of how obsessed other readers I know are with this. But I wouldn't say I've been converted over into a fan of Manga yet.

And!! Damn I really enjoyed this and ended up reading the whole first volume in one sitting, whoops.Thoughts:- I really like the premise & world-building. Obviously the whole superhero/superpowers thing has been done many times before, but this takes an interesting spin on it. The characters' powers (aka "quirks") are really cool, and I like that every power has its own unique drawback. - It's very funny actually! I was expecting something a bit more serious––and while it's definitely heavy at times, there's also a lot of humor and funny little breaking-the-fourth-wall moments which I enjoyed a lot.- Izuku is so cute??? He's just .... so small and precious .... He wants to be a hero and help people so much, and he's just so pure. I want to adopt him please.- I fucking love All Might. I'm a sucker for ""cool mentor"" characters so I guess it's no surprise but .... omg he's so awesome and hilarious. - Kacchan is a huge asshole but I'm also really interested to see where he goes as a character. - I mean in general I just really like all the characters and I look forward to seeing how they develop. UHHhhh yeah so this was a lot of fun and I'm super pumped to read the rest!

I find the concept really interesting and the art style is also quite good but there were just not as many exciting events in this first volume as I hoped. Especially the backstory of the protagonist was a bit rushed in my opinion, although I found him a likable character in general and I think that he has a lot of potential.

Only the first ten volumes are available for purchase in English (a little over half of what's been written so far).The focus of the series is how to deal with super powers. This is a world where the majority of the population have some form of power, and various rules (licensing) have been set up for legal exercise of these powers (as superheroes - it hasn't discussed so far the use of powers for non-combat related activities, and whether that needs to be licensed). There are villains, of course, and one in particular who kills heroes because heroes receiving compensation (under the licensing system) or who do it for non-noble reasons are (in that villain's opinion) far worse than, say, people who run around robbing and killing people because they can.I haven't found the heroes are Bad because not Pure line of argument all that interesting, though the other problem of over-relying on a central heroic symbol is interesting.Still, on the whole I enjoyed the series. Like a lot of shounen, there's an (endearing, upbeat) underdog main character whose eventual primacy is linked to determination and hard work (dattebayo!), and a main rival (Bakugo), and a vast range of other characters who are friends and competitors - enough for every reader to find a favourite, and more than enough to ensure that only the central few will ever receive enough time to properly enjoy them.While main character Midoriya is sweet, Bakugo seems to be the real fan favourite, which is interesting because Bakugo is introduced as Midoriya's bully, and really is outright nasty (over-the-top rude and hostile and violent to practically everyone else to the point where he needs to be chained to the winner's podium because he's so upset that a technically superior rival didn't go all out in their battle). But Bakugo's progression (drawn with spare moments of observation, and a buddy relationship with Kirishima) from wild preening dog to some marginal acknowledgement of others is more interesting than Midoriya's predictable "wants to save everyone and realises he can't but determination lets him come close" narrative.I like quite a few of the secondary characters. Momo would probably be my fave (smart underpowered girls tend to always get my sympathy), but I don't think she quite falls into the circle of central characters, so I don't know that I'll get much of a satisfying arc with her.The pace of the story has been relatively fast for a shounen, though, really, I think I'd quite like it if they dropped the villains off the page altogether and just focused on superpowers high school. The kids interacting is more interesting to me than villains that always have another trick up their sleeves, and this last Yakuza arc seemed to drag on forever.Unlike many shounens, there is not a pre-eminent emphasis on T&A. The majority of the female characters are sensibly clothed, and there are a variety of body types. (This isn't to say there aren't quite a few less-sensibly dressed characters, or an absence of big busts - it's just less than the usual shounen fare). Of course, there are also no main female characters who are nearly as strong as the core set of characters, which is very typical of shounen.

Le sfaccettature riguardanti il business, e persino gli spot, dei supereroi arricchiscono di elementi ad hoc quella che in fin dei conti è una storia abbastanza classica negli shonen-manga ma che qui viene meravigliosamente reinventata. L’unico ‘difetto’, se così si può chiamare, è l’affollamento; veniamo subito travolti da una marea di gente, però sono convinto che a lungo andare impareremo a conoscere bene ognuno di loro, con i rispettivi quirk e storie alle spalle. Solitamente sono uno che preferisce i personaggi secondari, o i villain :P, a quelli principali ma questo protagonista è davvero una potenza. Insomma: Deku spacca! Letteralmente…

    Izuku Midoriya’s dream is to become a superhero, like his idol All Might. The problem with that idea is that Midoriya belongs to the minority of people on his world who were born without a Quirk, a superpower of some kind. His former friend Katsuki Bakugo, who has a powerful Quirk and is naturally gifted, rubs this in at every opportunity, calling Midoriya “Deku” (no good qualities.) Midoriya has been training hard, but even when he meets his idol, he’s told that there’s no way he can become a s Izuku Midoriya’s dream is to become a superhero, like his idol All Might. The problem with that idea is that Midoriya belongs to the minority of people on his world who were born without a Quirk, a superpower of some kind. His former friend Katsuki Bakugo, who has a powerful Quirk and is naturally gifted, rubs this in at every opportunity, calling Midoriya “Deku” (no good qualities.) Midoriya has been training hard, but even when he meets his idol, he’s told that there’s no way he can become a superhero if he doesn’t have any powers.But then Midoriya proves he has the heart of a hero, attempting to rescue Bakugo from a powerful villain despite not having a chance of doing so. All Might reveals that there is a way Midoriya can earn a Quirk, and go to U.A. High, the magnet school for aspiring superheroes. Izuku Midoriya can turn around the “Deku” nickname, and make it mean “never gives up.”This shounen manga homage to American superhero comics was something of a sleeper hit; Mr. Horikoshi’s previous two efforts had a lukewarm reception, and the immediately preceding series, Barrage, tanked. So the online edition of Shonen Jump didn’t even bother running a preview when it debuted. But this time Horikoshi is firing on all cylinders.The setting is an alternate Earth where superpowers began appearing about five generations ago–it’s not clear if it’s the present day with huge changes, or a future where fashion and technology stagnated. Eighty percent of the population was born with some sort of power, called Quirks. Most Quirks are pretty minor (has tail, can attract small objects to hand from a foot away) but others are very impressive (Bakugo can create firey explosions from his sweat, Mount Woman can become a giant.) There are many criminals who use their Quirks for evil, so there are professional superheroes who stop them.There’s a lot to like about this series. Deku (as everyone winds up calling him) is not the idiot hero so common in shounen, but a thinker who wins battles and solves problems with observation and planning. Even when he earns the powerful Quirk “One For All” the power is difficult to use, so his brain is his greatest weapon. And yet he still possesses the compassion and courage of a true hero.There’s also a good supporting cast. Bakugo makes a strong contrast as the kid who has had all the advantages handed to him by birth, and takes it as his rightful due. His arrogance and sense of entitlement make him an ass, and he doesn’t lose much of that even after learning that no one at U.A. is going to put up with his crap. He does, however, quit with the bullying after events in Volume Two.Other classmates include nice (but dangerous) girl Ochako and the overly serious Iida, who get the most focus in this volume. Unlike other school-based series, where we only follow the hero and a handful of his friends, every classmate is a distinctive person and many will get spotlights in future volumes. There’s also an assortment of teachers with varying personalities.The tone is closest to Bronze Age DC Comics; some bad things happen, but the general tone is optimistic, never overdosing on grimdark or angst.As mentioned, there’s some bullying in the early chapters, and superheroic violence. There’s also fanservice in the form of female superheroes wearing skin-tight costumes (but not every female character chooses to do so.) Nothing a junior high or up reader can’t handle.Highly recommended to fans of teen superheroes and those who like their comics light-hearted.

Despite this, he still dreams of becoming a super hero, and when opportunity strikes, he gives it his all to get to his goal.So far, there are only about four characters that stand out, though there's an opportunity for more to come and go. We have Izuku, a boy still trying to figure out the whole "quirk" thing; "All Might," the ideal that Izuku aspires to be; Jerk Face Katsuki Bakugo, a guy who wants to be the greatest, even if it means being cruel to the competition; and Ochako Uraraka, a bubbly and straightforward girl who at this stage looks like the one who will be cheering Izuku on from his side as she too works at becoming a hero.There are elements of the western super hero comic universe and shounen tropes, but the mix makes for a different concoction than other super hero manga like HeroMan. As I said earlier, this one reminds me a lot more of Tiger & Bunny, but centered around the up-and-coming rather than the tried and true.If you like super heroes, definitely check this out.

    It's interesting to see a Japanese take on the American superhero genre. In the end, though, it doesn't really get the to the heart of superheroes. It basically lifts part of the plot from the movie Sky High. A weak and underpowered high schooler gets into a school for training superheroes and has to compete against those who have much stronger powers. The thing that I didn't really like is that none of the heroes feel heroic. In fact, they are all very unlikeable.

    My Hero Academia, by Kouhei Horikoshi is a manga series that is in many ways a tribute to American super-hero comics. From the chapter titles having artwork that emulates the covers of American comic books, and the general style and tone being more in line with American super-hero comics than manga, the book is one big shout-out to the American genre.The story takes place in a world where increasing numbers of the populace has developed abilities called "quirks".

From the chapter titles having artwork that emulates the covers of American comic books, and the general style and tone being more in line with American super-hero comics than manga, the book is one big shout-out to the American genre.The story takes place in a world where increasing numbers of the populace has developed abilities called "quirks". These abilities help the people who have them to do amazing feats, or sometimes just mundane things that aren't super-useful. Then mutants like in Marvel Comics or meta-humans like in DC Comics.Because of this, some people decided to use their new abilities to hurt others and enrich themselves in selfish, illegal, immoral ways. These new super-powered villains are sometimes really difficult, if not impossible, to stop. For ordinary folks or even those with less impressive quirks, at least. For those with powerful enough quirks, such villains are able to be fought successfully.Such powerfully-endowed folks are able to become professional heroes who work for the government and get fame and fortune doing so. And this brings us to our story.There is one boy named Midoriya who desperately wants to become a hero. To do so, he must attend a "hero school" and he wants to go to the premiered Hero school in Japan, the U.A. High School. Unfortunately, he is a quirkless - one of the few people left who has no quirk at all, not even a mundane one.Of course, between the lack of a quirk, the bullying of the only boy in their school to have a powerful quirk, and the mockery of everyone else over his dreams, Midoriya is miserable. When he is saved from attack by one of the strongest heroes, All-Might, his fortunes turn around. All-Might is so impressed with his heart that he helps Midoriya fulfill his dreams.So begins the story of this young boy's rise from the victim of bullying and useless dreams, to one of the mightiest rising heroes. Also to meeting good friends and a potential girlfriend.This story was really sweet and is, like Tiger & Bunny a really unique story. There are some subversions of typical Japanese genres that seem to uphold American ideas of individualism over Japanese cultural community. It's not subversive, but it does hit points that aren't often hit in Japanese series. Not that such isn't hit. Japan is a varied country of different viewpoints underneath the cultural conformity. Also, some ideas are everywhere, across cultural lines, just with differing emphases and so forth. But the tone is more American melded with Japanese. It's really quite interesting. I love Japanese culture, though there is bad just as in American culture. It's cool to see shout-outs and other stuff to American genres from a Japanese fan of such. It would be like some of the Americans that try to seriously emulate Japanese media.The characters are also a unique mix of Japanese and American types. And in the notes on some characters, you can see where the mangaka stated he decided to go against some style that his editors asked for. These characters are the ones that have a more American feel to them. There are other characters that are explicitly Japanese styles of characters too.My Hero Academia has a fun story and some really unique mixes of Japanese and American tropes and styles. It's quite interesting and one I highly recommend.

I actually hate these characters and Horikoshi sensei for making me feel all these damn feelings. Goddamnit.(view spoiler)[I LOVE THESE BOYS. I love how their relationship is being developed and how much they're growing as people. I love how Izuku is the only person Kacchan cries in front of, if that doesn't say trust then I don't know what does.I am so excited to see how much they'll continue to grow and how their relationship will continue to change and grow even stronger. They truly are the wonder duo, the heroes who will rescue and win. I love them. I love them. I love them. (hide spoiler)]Update | July 28, 2018:Volume 15: IIDA AND TODOROKI ARE THE BEST FRIEND ANYONE COULD EVER ASK FOR. I love them so much. They're so supportive and sweet when it really matters and their friendship with Izuku is so pure. I can't believe Shoto shared his soba, he loves his soba T-T (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Update | July 29, 2018: Volume 16: I love how Horikoshi sensei literally spends so much time developing his characters. We learned a little more about Mina, but Kirishima absolutely shines in this volume. He is the embodiment of manliness.And don't get me started on Tamaki "Suneater" Amajiki. I am so dang proud of these boys. They burn brighter than the sun.(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Update | July 30, 2018: Volume 18: I am so damn proud. I have never felt more proud of a fictional character as I do now with Katsuki Bakugo. He is Horikoshi's masterpiece. He shines so bright he is blinding. I didn't think I would ever like you, Kacchan, but you continue to prove me wrong. You continue to develop and grow and become even stronger and I cannot begrudge you for that.(view spoiler)[before:now: (hide spoiler)]Also, this is my new phone lock screen wallpaper. I have no shame.Update | July 31, 2018:Volume 19: How is it that this sparkly goofball found a way to worm himself into my heart? All I associated with him before was his strange way of breaking the fourth wall, but somehow Horikoshi sensei has made me like him so much more with just one chapter. I am in awe of his abilities to develop his characters, of how much time he puts in to make sure they all are more than just flat two dimensional beings.When I first started this series in no way did I think I would remember all 26 people of Class 1-A let alone all of their quirks, and yet here I stand, loving all of them with so much of my being. I wish, I wish, I could put all these vast thoughts and feelings into words.I wish I could explain how selfless and wonderful and driven Izuku. How big his heart truly is, and how he will save anyone no matter the circumstances. Even people who corner him in a sketchy, dark hall and pour their life story out it him when they had barely even talked before. Even those who were horrid to him in the past, and even those who don’t want him to. How he absolutely sparkles when he smiles, and how beautiful he is. How much he desperately wants to be a hero who saves everyone and doesn’t make others worry about him. How all he wants is to be a hero like All Might and make All Might proud. How soft and sweet and kind he is to Eri and Kota, to his friends and his wonderful, lovely mother, to those he loves. Izuku is everything. My love for him knows no bounds.I only wish I could show how strong Shouto is in his convictions, and determined to be a better hero than his dad. How he's trying to break out of his small bubble of solitude. How he's learning how to let others in when for so long he didn't have anyone. How he's so awkward with his classmates and still doesn't really get social cues let alone what friends are. But he tries and he tries his hardest, and when Izuku calls for help, when a friend calls for help, he comes.I wish I could even begin to convey how much Katsuki has grown in these 170+ chapters from just a loud bully, whom I didn't particularly like and couldn't understand why anyone else would like, into this driving force for his classmates to try to surpass that doles out advice to Izuku in his own strange way to help him live up to his power. A tsundere through and through.And so many more, all of the character in Class 1-A, their teachers too, Emo Dad and Dad Might, all of them have captured a part of my heart and now I refuse to let them go.Update | August 2, 2018:Chapter 190-192: Somehow Horikoshi sensei found a way to make me fall in love with a character that we had barely heard about until already this far into the series.(view spoiler)[I LOVE HAWKS. I abosolutely love characters like him, the one's who fight from the shadows. The one's who are selfless through and through. The true heroes who do not need recognition, who will fight for a better, peaceful future, no matter what. I am so excited to get to know more about him.I LOVE MY SON. Forget sipping tea, it's now slurping soba. What an absolute savage. What a total meme lord. What an icon. No one gets between Shoto and his soba. I am dying.Okay, but like one minute I was laughing because of my meme lord son and the next minute I'm tearing up because Natsu and Fuyumi are so pure and beautiful and lovely and they care so much for Shoto and I was just a giant mess.A lot of people were upset about the Endeavor redemption arc, and honesly, I'm still a little iffy about it myself. I don't think I can ever forgive him, but I genuinely think Horikoshi sensei will handle any Endeavor growth well, he is already doing such a nice job. No one has completely forgiven Endeavor yet, especially not Shoto, but he's willing to see how it plays out, which just goes to show how much Shoto has grown as a person. I am so proud of him. I love him.He's talking about his bf here :')Also, the best part is even Endeavor hasn't forgiven himself. Now, we don't know how genuine he is, but I am willing to keep an open mind. I definitely think Endeavor's first step was his talk with All Might. I am just super pumped to see how Horikoshi will handle the Todoroki family arc. These children honestly deserve all of the happiness and love in the world. I cannot wait for the next chapter!The Dabi is Touya theory better come true. I really think it could. (hide spoiler)]

    Jumping on the bandwagon, I thought I'd check this series out. In a world where 80% of the population have super-powers called Quirks, poor Izuku Midoriya wants nothing more than to emulate his hero, All Might. One problem - he doesn't have a Quirk at all. But a chance meeting with All Might himself catapults Midoriya into the UA High School for heroes, and his life will never be the same.The premise isn't entirely original, with smackings of X-Men or Inhumans for example, but it's pulled off in Jumping on the bandwagon, I thought I'd check this series out.

The randomness of the Quirks and the ways in which Horikoshi uses them during battle scenes is refreshingly new too. The characters are solid right off the bat, if a bit one-dimensional to start with. You've got your hero, your rival, your girl character, etc., but I'm sure there'll be plenty of time to flesh them out as we go.One thing I do notice about this is that it's probably the most Western manga I've ever read. Every chapters except the first is 20-22 pages, and there are even comic covers and proper cliffhangers between chapters, unlike the serialized nature of other manga I've read. It's definitely a good gateway drug for those who've read comics but don't really know where to start, in both premise and approach.

    When I first started this, I had low expectations. The art style is not a favorite and it seemed a bit corny. And in a way, it is. But there is a bit of determination depth and entertainment level that sweeps me away.Can you imagine a world in which a normal person without superpowers in considered odd? Everyone takes pity on our main character. Even his mother! And all he wants to do is be a great hero like his Role model, All Might. Time after times his dreams have been crushed.

Not too sure what to make of him. his true from is almost like is is an alien, it is so odd. There is a lot to learn about various powers (quirks). This is a light, fun action manga.

Sadly though, he was born without a quirk. And well, no spoilers!

    Reading this again because why not?While I don't read a lot of manga (I watch a lot of anime but read less manga), I can easily say that My Hero Academia is one of my favourites manga of all time. Which makes sense considering that I love superheroes. I'm currently on the latest chapter, but reading the first volume again is making me so nostalgic, and it's incredible to see how Izuku has grown in the span of 10/11? volumes.Will probably read this again some time later in the year.If you like sh Reading this again because why not?While I don't read a lot of manga (I watch a lot of anime but read less manga), I can easily say that My Hero Academia is one of my favourites manga of all time.

Totally worth it.
