I'll honestly say that the ratings for this ova are probably another example of extra unnecessary content getting a higher rating due to the popularity and fondness of the parent story. I'm not saying that many ovas and specials cannot be really good or better, but the My Hero Academia Jump Special is not one of those cases.
The story consists of nothing, but special training. It was kind of fun, but all it is watching the heroes take turns being the victims and saviors. It's mildly entertaining, but it's not that entertaining. 5/10
The art isn't that great. The art in the
actual show looks better. 5/10. I'll admit that the version I watched wasn't the best quality, but the art still seemed quite inferior.
The sound is no where near the quality of the usual stuff and it's a let down all around. Another 5/10.
It's an ova so don't expect the characters to be as good. They're still fun to watch, but a lot of their personality seems to be missing and the different personalities that are usually enjoyable to watch, just are not up to par. 5/10.
I did kind of enjoy this ova, but not all that much, compared to how I enjoyed the series. In the end, it's basically just a side story that didn't necessarily need to be animated. It's not bad, but it's not quite ok or good either; it's rather meh. 5/10. It's probably still worth the watch for big My Hero Academia fans.
Ah, Boku no Hero Academia. Loved the first season, but felt that this OVA was a bit lacking in some aspects. Here's my take on it:
A brief synopsis: The story basically takes place a couple weeks after the end of the first season. The students go back to the USJ to complete their training with Hero Thirteen, and find out that it isn't as safe and secure as they'd thought it would be the second time around.
The art seems to be the same as the first season, although it did feel a bit choppy in some places and during the battle scenes.
The sound was average and mostly uses the tracks heard during the first season of the anime. Nothing special or outstanding really.
We see the characters just as they are during the anime. The difference is, they seemed 'dumbed' down this time and not as lively as they were in the first season.
Fans of BnHA will enjoy it due to the fact that we are getting just a little bit more of BnHA while waiting for the second season to air.
Despite its flaws, it was fun to see the characters return again and to also witness their quirks in action. If you watched the first season of the anime and enjoyed it for what its worth, there's no harm in checking out this OVA.
