    I left volume 2 of this series unsure if I should keep reading this series, but THIS CHANGED MY MIND. I loved this so much more than the last volume and I'm back to being trash for this series. DEKU DESERVES THE WORLD. That's all.

    The story and the characters continue to grow and evolve, and I’m really enjoying the ride even though the book follows all the typical shonen manga tropes — this time, there’s a strength tournament! How original. And yet the action is fun, the characters are likable (mostly), and so I really don’t mind the book playing in the familiar territory for now.

    So here is why this story is so well put together in my opinion. 1. the story is significantly more complex that it emerged in the first 2 volumes. Volume 1 really presented our main characters and their interactions; and the power of sheer will. Volume 2 already conveyed a super complicated dynamic between the heroes and the villains in which the youngsters are thrown into.

Volume 1 really presented our main characters and their interactions; and the power of sheer will. Volume 2 already conveyed a super complicated dynamic between the heroes and the villains in which the youngsters are thrown into. Sure, there are still conflicts and interesting relationships in the classroom yet the powerful aspect is that young heroes are stretched to their limits since the very beginning. And they are not expected to win alone - so much that they do not unlike many other manga stories - yet they provide extremely valuable support and skills to the adult heroes. 2. The comics are FULL of details. I was casually reading One Piece (and I will be delighting myself with that story as well) which is an absolute deserved success in terms of characters, story, world building, yet the comics are much simpler. Instead in My Hero Academia every single page delivers a lot of content that goes well beyond the average of my (limited) manga experience. I cannot wait to delve into #4 - if the volume will be delivered to me in the next days. Yet, I bought the all the published volumes available so far (10).

    This is the volume where things get interesting - for those who have watched season 1 of the anime that is - since here we reach the point where the anime stopped and get to know how to story goes on. I was super excited to know how things will turn out, how the members of class 1-A are developing. To my surprise lots of declaration of rivalry happened but at the same time it makes me happy since this will create the opportunity to get to know them better, in deeper depth.I won't say more, This is the volume where things get interesting - for those who have watched season 1 of the anime that is - since here we reach the point where the anime stopped and get to know how to story goes on.

    Well, I've nothing against Shonen, but a story based only on fights isn't really interesting in my opinion. The strong point of manga for me is character development, leading me to be involved in the stories and caring about each hero. The 1st volume had enough potential, but the characterization is still very flat at vol 3. I don't care about the characters and about what is happening to them. There are other good manga out there so I'll stop this one here.

    The Sports Festival is one of my favourite story arcs of this series, it's so great to see everyone's quirks all together and to see the pros and cons of each one. I like how even some the members of the Hero Course came in last to show that not all of them are are strong as they could possibly be yet and that there is always a chance for the people on the other courses too!

The 1-on-1 battles should be a lot of fun too, I'm especially excited for the Midoriya vs. Todoroki battle as it gives Todoroki his perfect time to shine as we haven't seen him at his full strength yet. Bring it on! Plus Ultra!

    Actual rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsUnfortunately, the rescue arc didn't end well, in my opinion. The lesson/moral was great, but the fights were cluttered and had too many elements that distracted from All Might and Izuku's development as mentor and student. However, I am already so excited for this tournament arc, and the new characters look super, super cool! Plus, more development for aloof Todoroki? Sign me up!

    So after Mr. Hands and the Brain got defeated I’m starting to see new things. I’ve seen a little bit the tournament but this looks like a lot of fun. It’s interesting to see other students from other classes. It’s great that Midoriya won the first round but now he just painted a huge target on his back. Onto the next volume!

    It's nice to see how these young heroes find themselves in practical situations to put to good use their theoretical experience. The table is set with a good tease of the villains to come in the near future and the story continues with its own version of a sports event.The artwork continues to be explosive and pretty good, although the pacing feels a bit too accelerated, making it seem like everything ends as soon as they start.Yours truly,Lashaan | Blogger an It's nice to see how these young heroes find themselves in practical situations to put to good use their theoretical experience.

    This series is slowly growing on me, and now with the aspect of a superhero sports event with little to no rules, I loved the final chapters of this volume and can’t wait to read on soon. Also interested to see what the league of super villains have planned next and who their leader truly is. Solid 4/5.

    10/10 series, everything to be said has already been said in past reviews. I’m so fricken hype for the anime you have no idea. I’m just sad because I’m quite sure the anime is going to surpass the volumes that are out in English, as I would have liked to have read all the manga before seeing it animated.

Sigh, I was hoping that the next volume would be out earlier during the airing of the anime so it could supply me with some last minute content before they aired it.*EDIT!!!!*I was terribly confused when I wrote this review! For some reason I was under the impression this is the fourth book, so August 2nd is actually the release for the fifth book! The fourth book comes out May 3rd which is fantastic! There will only be five episodes out by then which means there might actually be a chance to get last second new content! Either that or we'll be able to read what we just saw aired. Who knows!

We start off with the finishing of the battle between class 1A and the group of villains who broke into the University, ultimately this has serious consequences for All Mighty.

Sports Festival, whoot!The conclusion to the USJ battle was pretty interesting, with All Might making quick work of many of the villains before having to attempt to take down their "secret weapon". Whilst it didn't go quite as well as he would've hoped... he still did an incredible job and the only student to get injured in the USJ battles was (of course) Midoriya. Of course now that we know more about Nomu, it seems like he's going to be a rather major villain in this, especially with how he seems to be built purely to destroy All Might...I loved the introduction to the U.A. Sports Festival too, which also has the introduction of many other students from U.A. - not just class 1-A anymore, but also classes 1-B all the way to I think 1-H, covering everything from heroes to support to business... And with the way the first "battle" (a race) went, I'm intrigued to see where things go from there ;DChapter notes below for reference:(view spoiler)[Chapter 18.(view spoiler)[All Might’s QUICK. Managed to take out most of the villains and rescue Aizawa, Deku, Tsuyu and Mineta in almost no time at all.--Uh ohhhh… there are rumours flying that All Might is getting weaker. That means he’s likely to be challenged further, regardless of how this battle goes...--Deku going to rescue All Might is great and all, but I prefer Bakugo just trying to take out some anger on the Vortex guy because he’s mad :P (hide spoiler)]Chapter 19. (view spoiler)[Oh look. Nomu can regenerate limbs. Lovely.--I agree with you there All Might - the hands dude is very idealistic for a villain.--Know I know you need to defeat the villain and all, All Might. But you’re not exactly in top form and wearing yourself out could leave you rather open for retaliation, especially if you “revert”. So I appreciate the sentiment and all but it just seems like a really bad idea.--Well. There he goes. In the words of Pokemon, Nomu is blasting off thanks to a rather impressive attack by All Might ;D (hide spoiler)]Chapter 20. (view spoiler)[All Might’s about to reverttttt.--Go Deku, go!--More pro heroes to the rescueee. And a LOT of them at that, impressive o.O--So Deku’s seemingly futile attack really made the difference between life and death for All Might - if it weren’t for that, he wouldn’t have survived for the remaining Pro Heroes to arrive. (hide spoiler)]Chapter 21. (view spoiler)[Hehe. That was a close one. Kirishima almost caught All Might in his reverted form ;D--Oooh… hint at a “boss figure” to the villains (in particular the “hands” guy ;D)--Oh look. They’ve captured Nomu.-- Heh. And once again, Deku is the only student to truly get injured. He’s going to end up with his name above a bed in the hospital wing at the rate he’s going :P (hide spoiler)]Chapter 22. (view spoiler)[Sports festival incoming! Whoot! A time for the students to practice their skills, and also to potentially gain the favour of a famous “pro-hero” who wants them as a sidekick - basically a great opportunity all around ;D --Uraraka is such a sweetie, and I love her motivation for wanting to be a hero; to earn money to help her family and make their lives easier <33--So, All Might’s limit has gone to 50 minutes. That’s not good.--So the reason that Deku was able to regulate his power for the first time was because he was using it against someone, and didn’t want to cause overmuch harm? That’s a good reason for regulating c: (hide spoiler)]Chapter 23. (view spoiler)[Looks like Bakugo’s putting his “pleasant” demeanor to good use again. That’s nice :P--Oh look. Class 1B has their own Bakugo. I hope these two have to go against each other at some point, because I’m fairly certain it would be hilarious.--And we have a declaration of war from Todoroki to Deku, as a result of Deku being “All Might’s favourite”. (hide spoiler)]Chapter 24. (view spoiler)[So that oath that Kacchan made was basically to piss everyone off so that they’d want to destroy him, thus meaning that he really would have to be the best in order to get first place… XD--Heh. Todoroki froze most of his “opponents” to start off as the frontrunner for the race XD (hide spoiler)]Chapter 25. (view spoiler)[So the Class 1-B version of Bakugo (Tetsutetsu) basically has the same ability as Kirishima; only Kirishima’s body turns as hard as a rock, and Tetsutetsu’s body turns as hard as steel ;D ...Does this mean that the second guy’s ability is stronger in terms of durability?--So far the frontrunners of the race are primarily Class 1-A. Interesting ;D--I love this support student XD I remember you from the anime and you were great! C:--Hehe. Bakugo’s mad that Todoroki’s declaration of war was to Deku and not him :P--Whoot! Go Midoriya! (hide spoiler)]Chapter 26. (view spoiler)[Midoriya’s in the lead thanks to smart thinking and the use of an improvised shield. Great job! :D--And he KEPT that lead until the very end. WHOOOOOT!--...seriously Mineta? Using your ability to hitch a ride on Yaoyorozu? That’s a tad rude, don’t you think?--Next up, a cavalry battle! (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

If there is one thing we know, it’s that he IS getting weaker and that he won’t be around forever. Eventually, All Might will die... but I’m glad it wasn’t this early. Nomu is creepy and an abomination that shouldn’t have ever been created. As strong as it is, it could do some real damage if it went wild.Bakugo and Todoroki get some time to shine in this volume as the two of them plus Kirishima come to Izuku and All Might’s aide. But they really shine in the second half - the beginning of the Sports Festival. This is the kids shot to show off for the pros and prove they’ve got the stuff to go far and neither of the two are willing to let anyone else steal the spot light. Also, who thought it was a good idea to let Bakugo be class rep? Shoulda known he was just gonna piss everyone off...Izuku and his brain! I love his thoughtfulness that goes into almost every single move and plan he makes. Like how he uses the minefield’s at the sports festival to propel himself into the lead during a race. That was brilliant! It’s also nice to see him face down those zero pointers and see how much more confident he’s grown since the entrance exam, even though it really hasn’t been all that long and he still has a long way to go. But while I want his confidence to grow, I hope he stays this sweet, intelligent, crybaby I love.Aizawa someone strap this man to his hospital bed! A pulverized face, two shattered arms, and who knows what else. This man should not be back at school after two days... let alone vein Present Mic’s sidekick announcer at the festival two weeks later. Just reading Mic’s parts make me tired. How can anyone have that much energy...?The Sports Festival seems like a lot of fun and I love knowing we’ll see it two more times in the future! It’ll be a great way to measure how far each student has come since the previous festival! Also loved meeting Class B and the General and Support courses. I dunno who the Eyebags kid is yet? But he speaks to me on a spiritual level and I kinda am already half in love with him. Can we dump Mineta and have this kid instead?The League of Villains two top members live on to plot and fight another day. Shigaraki really is kind of like a child, I’m glad the heroes made that connection. He’s a spoiled brat and treats everything like a game. And he’s creepy! I mean... bro, what’s wrong with your face?A good conclusion to USJ and a nice beginning to the sports festival... but poor Izuku now has a big target on his back as far as the other kids are concerned... 4 stars out of 5.

That isn't a bad thing. A lot of anime/manga tends to be plagued with soft filler between the arcs to give artists/readers a break from hard-hitting stuff but as far as I know My Hero Academia just jumps straight from arc to arc!It's fantastic to see some of the other characters aside from Midoriya get the spotlight cast on them. Horikoshi has such a large and vibrant cast of characters that he never comes up short when something specific is needed. It's really nice to see fan favourite Todoroki come into the limelight here. I know from the anime that we're about to get some great backstory but you can already tell from the first few chapters that he's one of this arc's primary players.Horikoshi has created a unique hero society in an era where hero fatigue is getting the best of all of us. This volume is the first time we see the aftermath of serious villains. We see two pros very seriously injured. Horikoshi reminds you that our protagonists are still heroes in training and that the world is dangerous. There's a sort of somber realization in seeing their teacher smashed to pieces but the tone picks back up pretty quickly for a fun-filled tournament arc.I strongly believe that the Sports Festival is one of the best-done tournament arcs in anime/manga history. the race is exciting and action-packed. The art in this manga is some of the best I've ever seen. it has spoiled me entirely for everything else. I find myself picking up some of my older favourites and finding that they look flat in comparison to Horikoshi's heavily detailed style.I think My Hero Academia is definitely here to stay (not that that's a unique opinion) and it's firmly going to be in the top few shounen for a while. I also think though, that it's a little different from other shounen that have been in its place. While the fights and action are good I think Horikoshi gives a little more care to his plot and characters. Too many large shounen tear through minor characters and throw them away without making them more than one note and I'm delighted by how much though each of Midoriya's classmates and teachers seem to have behind them. I can't wait to know them better.

The follow through is also really good with a breather and lighter fare which allows for character development to take center stage. I really like tournament settings and this one plays at that, I am enjoying this!Characters: Great character moments with some students like the ice dude and also some villain designs are pretty amazing with hands guy and Nomu and the shadow dude (yes I know I have all their names wrong). I like the creative design of these character, it's some top notch stuff. I want more depth for the characters and hopefully with the tourney next book we will get it. Onward to the next book!

    Kind of on the edge of three stars. Still enjoying it, but the characters still seem pretty one note, and the writing is a little weak frankly. Really hard to believe some of the outcomes and characters too often just tell their secret plans and the artist admits he is a perv and it occasionally shows, and I’ve never been a fan of that. Still, I like the action, art, and some of the characters, and the creative powers of the heroes and villains.

    In Finnish, they translated "villain" as "pahis", which would essentially mean "bad guy" or "baddie". This gives the entire story a whole different kind of feel whenever the Baddie League shows up.
