I liked when All Might showed up for his class and one of the comments was "That costume is so cool, so tacky, so silver age!" lol

The mere fact that they use terms like "silver age" is a big part of why I love stuff like this. Assuming it's not just a translator thing, I mean.

Yeah I hope it's from the actual mangaka and not from scanlators.

Also Frog Girl is love, Frog Girl is life.

I certainly hope he doesn't die yet, he still needs to grow closer to all the students so avenging him if he dies later on gets real weight. I'm expecting him to win but be really hurt and forced to reveal his true identity to a few of the students.

By importing and hand-translating the manga ourselves, naturally.

Just do a search for "read manga" or something like that.

I'm hoping Deku relies more on his ability to analyze the powers than his superman-esque quirk.

Basically more Batman than Superman.

oh and there are already shippers for Deku/Frog Girl and Deku/Infinity Girl lol

That'd be cool. I really do like the setup we've got now, where he's relying on his Awesomeness by Analysis to compensate for his tendency to tear his own body apart. Feels very unique.

Haha! Can you imagine? Fanfavorite girl with the jerkass character, I wonder if the manga is actually going to give some room for romance.

Yep! I kinda wish Deku gets a hold of his powers soon, since if he keeps damaging himself without a tangible repercussion it might hurt the story a little bit, in my opinion. Unless the point is to nerf him because of a constantly degrading body, who could be awesome for storytelling.

I think that's the point, yeah. He's got a power level totally out of proportion with the rest of the cast (sans All Might, of course, and that freaky guy who shrugged off his punch), which is cool for a side character but kind of unwieldy for a protagonist. Unless he's got some kind of incredibly harsh limiter, he'd just be roflstomping everybody. Having him constantly injure himself is a much better way of going about that than most I've seen, especially in Shonen, where they tend to take "limiter" rather literally :P

Hehe, yeah! It also helps that he is such a likable guy, so when he hurts himself you actually care for him and it means a lot, since he literally sacrifices himself for the sake of others.

I feel like he's also going to have his own "limiter" in place in the sense that he's the kind of person who is going to always hold back unless absolutely necessary. Could actually be a neat arc if they eventually have to address him dealing with being a man of steel living in a world of paper.

Also, I guess as far as romance goes, I think I'd just be cool if he and Gravity Girl just have a natural relationship that never really acts as the focus for the series, since that'd seem more fresh.

Yeah. World of Cardboard is definitely a fun trope.*

The gold standard of Shonen relationships is (for me) Sena and Suzuna in Eyeshield 21. It just sort of... evolves, organically. Never feels like it's elbowing its way in front of the main plot, but it ends up being a big part of both characters regardless.

*The definitive example found here!

Worm is pretty good, though, its not really about school stuff and is tonally different than My Hero Academia.
I should really finish up on it. I was keeping up while it was still updating, took a break, and got spoiled on the ending, so I haven't finished reading the last arc.

Hmm, thinking about it are there any good superhero mangas aside from this and One Punch Man.
The only other one I can kind of think of is Hero Mask and only 3 chapters were ever translated over a year ago.

Also, seems like it is impossible to have manga/anime related threads without this best girl crap nowadays.

Edit: Funnily this best girl thing actually makes some sort of sense in this manga. lol. I am enjoying it, chapter 5 so far.

From what I've heard, it's apparently not left the top 5 since it started getting ranked. Going to guess by its popularity that it'll have an anime within a year or so.

I read a random chapter just for shits and giggles, and it had 2 dudes fightings and it was horrible. The art has regressed so much, lots of random blacks in the panels, shitty composition. Kubo just doesn't give a fuck anymore.

I'm seriously betting those hands are either

His restraints (like a straight jacket)
Or tied to his power

The first one scares me more because he could be absolutely devastating.

I'm hoping it's the second; the lack of any sort of literal power limiters is one of the things I
like about the series thus far.

Boko no Hero Academia 14-18

Asui Tsuyu (Frog Lady) Her character... personality.... abilities
I also like how the main protag stops becoming goofy when things get serious
Their strategy in the water area was neat

The violence gets somewhat brutal in some scenes... it doesn't look realistic but it just looks more painful compared to other Shonens over the top violence (Eraser heads arm o.O)

Might Guy being pissed is was nice... sadly his powers have truly weakened
(still all those kids now jumped in)

After reading these chapters I am 100% for a team revision where the protags main team is the frog girl and the ball head kid.... the series is just way more amusing with them around and that team chemistry
