Boku no Hero Academy S2 and World Trigger:
Both have a arc dedicated to demonstrating their abilities, which will use it to fulfill their goals, in a competition, where they fight against their allies, until they get that satisfaction of being part of a force majeure, and protect people by themselves, either together or separately.
Unlike BnH, World Trigger skills are not that much of a difference, but like BnH, there are some with particularities, powers or abilities that make them different from the rest.
The main protagonists are partly similar:
Okumo (WT) and Deku (BnH): They possess their notorious weaknesses, but struggle every day to be stronger.
Chika (WT) and Ochako (BnH): They admire the prota, their abilities are notoriously surprising, they are cheerful, innocent and strong to make progress.
Kuga (WT) and Todoroki (BnH): They possess inherited abilities, but they are skills that left a mark that can not easily be erased.
Jin (WT) and All Might (BnH): They are veterans, who support with some distance the protagonists to achieve their objectives. read more
Both shows have a similar feel and combat scenes.
There are people who fight those who would otherwise hurt the world. World Trigger deals with aliens while Boku no Hero Academia deals with criminals.
The main protagonists grow in a similar way and learn to fight. Both main characters are successful because of their strategy and wit. If you like one, you will most likely like the other.
In Boku no Hero Academia, the main character works to reach the potential of his strength whereas for World Trigger the main character does so even as you don't see it immediately. Both of them grow to save the world in their own way. read more
Both feature worlds where people have unique powers.
Both feature MCs who value their friends/comrades.
Both have MCs that have really strong powers.
Fairy Tail is a fantasy world whereas BnHA is a more realistic depiction of the real world.
Fairy Tail has fanservice whereas HnHA has none.
The protagonists in both series start late from square one and have to work hard in order to catch up to their peers.
Both main characters have analytical minds and write their data in order to develop strategies. Their personality is similar as they are both "nerds" (Maruo with tennis and Midoriya with heroes).
• Both have protagonists who want to be powerful, like their idols and enter an academy;
• Boku no Hero has hero academy, while Little Witch has witch academy;
• Both are childish but are creative and fun;
• Both have "no-power" protagonists, but they get one during the anime.
Both have a tournament episodes and every fight consist of cliff hangers. Excitement is above the ceilings and winners are very unpredictable.
While both anime is very different in terms of "fighting" one another, both anime is very fun to watch. If you enjoyed Boku no Hero Academia, Shokugeki no Souma is your next series to watch.
Both these series are about a "hero" gaining power, starting out as weak and growing with a mentor who trains them up well to be able to progress in their passions at an adequate rate. (Not too fast, nor too slow). Both struggle with themselves and what they want to be. This case, it is Mafia, but the Mafia in this world is seen as good and protects people.
Overall to me, it has a similar feel as well overeall besides just character personalities and progressions learning to use their power.
It could sound like a stretch but.. To me these two series remind one another in a way..
While these two series have a longer list of what makes them different than what makes them similar, one still reminds me a piece of the other over these few aspects:
- Both casts of young characters are enrolled in extremely special schools (whether it is Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite school for aspiring Chefs in Shokugeki no Soma; or Hero Academia, an amazing school for aspiring Heroes in Boku no Hero Academia) who will bring out the true potential of their students
- Teachers from both schools also play significant roles in the story (be it World recognized Chefs or Professional Heroes)
- The way of "fight" is surely different from one another but the "adrenaline" and "curiosity" that the battles will give you, do surely look similar to eachother on that sort of vibe
- Additionally, probably the strongest thing that made me think back of SnS while watching BnHA was the tournament element who plays an important part of the stories and an interesting way to develop characters (and their techniques / powers) even further. Tournaments in both series bring out strategy as well, which doubles the fun while watching, and the fact that both tournaments are very "originally-processed" also brings more enjoyment. Not to mention, the winners are definitely unpredictable most of times! Won't let you down.
Although SnS's tournament only starts towards the "end" of the first season and carries on in the sequel, we won't see it before the second season for what regards BnHA instead; but i still advice to watch the first seasons, this way you'll better understand the characters and the story itself.
That's it. In my opinion tournaments, if developed nicely, are a very fun way to spice up certain stories and definitely enjoyable to watch.
If you liked one of these, and are out of something to watch, you might give a try to the other one too! Although keep in mind that main themes of the stories are still very different, also BnHA can get more "serious" and having to deal with Life-or-Death situations, while SnS, which is "lighter" on this view, has instead the addition of lots of free fanservice for male audience. Despite that, i still enjoyed both of them. I hope it will be the same for you too!
