My Hero Academia is no longer the 2nd coming of Hunter x Hunter. Rather, it is starting to look like the 2nd coming of Fairy Tail.


We don't really have any plot or driving motion in the series anymore. The lack of build-up in former seasons is backfiring hard, and the pacing which is all over the place is not helping. The content itself is practically pure heroism for the sake of it, and heroes winning because they are the main characters. Really starting to look like it's made by Marvel.

The new arc is really bad. First part of the "training" ending in 5 read more

After a great first season and a no less than fantastic second season My Hero Academia is back at it again with season 3, not even six months since season 2 ended. I wrote in my early review for season 2 that I was skeptical that it would be able to carry on being as well refined as season 1 was. Now that the second season is done there is no doubt that I was worried all for nothing. This is the exact thing I'm feeling heading in to the third season of Hero Acca. I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride, cause I read more

I was truly waiting for the 4th, 5th and 6th episode to air just to write a review about how much I love this show.. and those last 3 episodes just have blown my mind with its PERFECTION AND INTENSION!! BNHA IS A PIECE OF ART! This show is a perfect example of how many feelings the author and animation studio can put just in 24-minutes-length episode and how you can get even more feelings and emotions while watching. The amount of action is huge, I mean really huge, in the beginning you can feel the intrigue, in the middle you ROTFL and in the read more

The beloved shounen series is back again, adapting some of the manga’s finest arcs.

Although it starts with a slightly unnecessary, but well-handled recap episode, it gets right to the story afterwards, starting off with some cool set-up and character moments. Then, things get serious.

Suddenly, villains are everywhere, putting everyone to a test.

What is so loveable about shounen is the theme of not giving up and pushing to the limit, overcoming your obstacles no matter how great they are. Which BNHA exemplifies. On one side with the battles themselves. Especially the fight between Izuku and the physically superior Muscular will have you hyped, read more

“This season is about 2 lads,

The symbol of hope & the symbol of victory,

One is introvert & the other is mad,

And both are always in each other’s memory,

They were friends in their childhood,

But both turned to be an obstacle in each other’s road,

One is a hero that’s always praised,

And the other is a hero that’s unrecognized,

Aggressive, prideful and a bully boy,

Who sees the other as a nothing, but an annoy,

Cheerful, shy and a dreamer youth,

Who can pay anything just to rescue someone, even if the price is a tooth,

Both are like water & fire,

The only common thing was the person whom they admire,

And becoming his read more

For the third consecutive time Boku no Hero Academia returned in the spring season, and for the third time brought a season with a thematically cohesive story, with no plothole or loose end. The new characters are incredibly charismatic, at the same time they have not forgotten to develop the old ones. There are 25 episodes well setup, animated and directed with breathtaking scenes alongside a flawless and chilling soundtrack.

Boku no Hero Academia is by no means innovative, but that's no problem, why? Because he does not want to be innovative. The author of Boku no Hero Academia (Horikoshi Kohei) has complete awareness that his read more

(Note: I wrote this review right after episode 9 of season 3 of BNHA, so if you want to read my thoughts on episode 10 and 11, go to the section that starts with “EDIT.” This isn’t a traditional review of season 3, it is more of a retrospective for the entire series up to this point. This is not my full review, as it is too long, if you want a link to my full review, pm me.)

Considering the praise that Boku No Hero gets, a lot of the fans of the series usually include the clause that the reasons that BNHA is popular, read more

Before this, I would recommend reading my reviews of the first two seasons of Boku no Hero Academia. Many details that explain my opinion on this series in a broader sense are already covered there.

This season picks up where the previous season left off, with the students preparing to go to an inevitably doomed summer training camp. The plot takes a much darker tone this season, with The League of Villains newly-emboldened by Stain's actions in season 2, and full of fresh faces. The first arc of this season gives the new villains a chance to show off what they're made of, and set up read more

Superhero stories feels like it’s been populating the entertainment industry from these recent years. Marvel and DC successfully adapted many of these superhero tales with huge fanbases. The CW Network have aired shows with a large following like The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. My Hero Academia always reminds me that it has a place with its own set of superheroes and villains. With that in mind, I was pretty ecstatic about the return of My Hero Academia.

The third season does a bit of recapping at first to get viewers comfortable with its characters, story setting, and general concepts. As someone who has read more

Hero Academia's poor character development has ruined an otherwise engaging story.

If you enjoyed the first 2 seasons in spite of a few absurd story arcs and silly character development, and you're willing to overlook poorly thought out character motivations for the sake of grand themes of heroism then you might be able to enjoy and even fully embrace season 3. I disliked the nonsensical villain motivations in Season 2 and I feel that their motivations seem to make even less sense in Season 3.

Since Season 2, we have seen that most of Hero Academia's villains want to kill All Might because he happens to read more

I do not like Boku no Hero Academia.

Boku no Hero Academia is probably the most popular anime of recent years and is widely regarded as a great series. But I’ve never understood the hype. There are familiar characters with dull motivations and extremely boring humor. BnHA is pretty much 50 percent "comedy" comedy with BIG quotation marks and 50 percent fights. I'd like to explain why I think BnHA fails in both of these departments in this review.

The Fights
I'll be comparing an anime with fantastic fights: Hunter x Hunter with those in Boku no Hero Academia in these segment so if you haven't read more

I always considered mha for a mediocre enjoyable show. 60 episodes in and we had very little story progression and world building which is dissapoiting.

Season 3 started of with a typical generic school trip. Few attempts of comedy here and there that simply didn't land. Other than that some todoroki development and deku vs muscular build up were only things worth seeing first 3 episodes.

Characters training was much longer than it should have been. Wasted some time imo. Deku vs muscular fight was okay. The animation was great but again it was so generic and it lacked both creativity and choreography. No tactics used at read more

3rd season of Boku no Hero Academia review:
(My English is not that good but atleast I tried)

-Plot/story , main idea:
The story and its meaning did'nt had much thought in it. characters are training to be heroes and to defend the world from evils. evils are trying to block the 'heroes' actions to take the control from them to achieve their goals.. It's all same read more

If you like boku no hero you might like this season because is the same again.

- Deku finds some bad people
- Deku SMASH
- Deku brokes arm
- Deku useless
- Deku is healed
- Repeat
- ???
- Profit

Is literaly the same as the old seasons, it hasn't evolved in any way. Neither his or his friends powers.

-Story: 5
What I said in top.

-Art: 7
Not much to say is not bad just this.

-Sound: 6

-Character: 6?
I can't say anything. We know how are all of the caracters so a 6 is enough?

-Enjoyment: DEKUSMASH /10
I'm not enjoying it at all, it starts feeling booring

-Overall: 6
If the formula works, don't change it?

[THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS for Hunter x Hunter, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Naruto, and Boku no Hero Academia Seasons 1, 2, and 3]

Whenever a show gets super popular here on my anime list dot com, a large group of anime viewers watch it and give it a rating. This rating is calculated with all the other user's ratings and creates an overall ranking system. The system MAL employs emphasizes an overall ranking that naturally lends itself to abuse by people who want their favorite show to be #1. This results in a lot of fluff being upvoted to near the top, and it read more

This season was just more of the same of the previous two except longer. We first get another training arc, where the students are training to improve their quirks. The training portion amounted to “the more you use it, the stronger it gets.”, how exciting. The author must have realized how dull it was as it only lasted about half the episode and was never to be seen again for the rest of the season.

Next was another attack by the Shigaraki and goons, their goal this time is to kidnap Bakugo. We’re also introduced to a new one dimensional villain called Muscular, who read more

Maybe there will be spoilers, maybe there won't. I'm writing this on the spot.

I enjoy this show for the same reason I enjoy Fairy Tail. For every passing moment that the episode continues, I imagine the unspeakable atrocities that I would commit on this cast of boringass characters. I shit you not. I've been watching a decent bit of Fairy Tail and my imagination is the sole reason that I'm able to handle Natsu's shit.

If you like this anime, that's fine. If you think it's good, that's fine. If you think it's a 10/10 though? That's also fine. But when people start praising this heaping read more

TL;DR: My Hero Academia is failing.

As a run of the mill shounen series, it would pass as such. Sure it would.
As the biggest western-reaching shounen series currently airing? Not a damn chance.

Any sense of narrative direction is gone. The fights are mere husks compared to their predecessors. The sakuga-esque animation from the heights of S2 are gone (with the exception of meme Bakugo flying through the sky). And, most startling of all, the characters exist solely for a punch line, or to satisfy some asinine "ship" that the average viewer doesn't give a damn about.

What are they going to do next? I read more

After 12 episodes I can say this season is by far the worst. I thought the end of season two was the worst part but nah, it was only the tip of the iceberg phui. I dont want to spoiler at this point but to summarize it: the third seaon is almost one piece/fairy tail level. The first season started good, new, fresh and promising, but unfortunately, now it is getting annoying/boring.

For example, like how often the mc break his body parts. No one cares at this point. Sorry, one scene where the doc says, dont do it again boy or the next time your read more

This is a review for overall BNHA although a little bit focus on season 3

BNHA is a Shounen series where superpowers , hardwork , talent , good vs bad and society are involved , and it is inspired from western superheroes as its base design.

Shounen done right, nuff said. the pacing is on point while not neglect the comedy / slice of life moment of Shounen series completely. might be a little bias , but I love Shounen but hate how Fillerto , Filler Tail destroyed it, where they could bother to create a brand new 1 cour arc and it was for nothing, not read more
