Lol. A bit exaggerating, but I must agree. Even so, the character design looks. I'm expecting more about this anime.
And, I won't blame MAL if the story went ashtray.

Well that's because there's a SHIT load of characters lol

It's literally a whole class worth of characters, so around 20-25 or so, not even including the teachers, pro heroes, villains, and other classes students.

If they play it right, this could be Bones' breakout onto the long-running shounen scene. That would have so many implications--first, their animation quality is leagues above Pierrot or Toei, so we'd be able to see stuff like Naruto Shippuuden 167 on a regular basis. It would also mean they would have a steady cash flow, so more stability and leg room for more experimental or unusual projects.

There's a lot. There's still a whole other class, teachers, and villains as well.... Although I doubt they'll go through all of them.

Out of the whole supporting cast that has been revealed so far, these are the most weirdest ones. First hero looks rather abnormal, reminds me of Scorpion from Spiderman.

That would be great, since it has enough content to do 2-cour.

She would have to be, right? If clothes are the only thing that makes her visible, than she'd have to be naked.

Yes, when it finally airs, it will most likely stop.
Though I don't see the problem, a lot of people are excited, so why does it matter if there's some news about it? It's not like they're talking it up, just revealing new information.

That is a lot better way to put it lol I thought you were just some troll but at least you give a reason for why you think so. I wouldn't really say it's a ripoff as it has a completely different story telling. While One Punch Man is about someone trying to find a strong opponent, Boku no Hero Academia is about a guy wanting to become a hero, but has a hard time due to his troublesome power. I would say the manga is good so far, it has some clear rules and it definitely has different values than One Punch Man focus on.

If they play it right, this could be Bones' breakout onto the long-running shounen scene. That would have so many implications--first, their animation quality is leagues above Pierrot or Toei, so we'd be able to see stuff like Naruto Shippuuden 167 on a regular basis. It would also mean they would have a steady cash flow, so more stability and leg room for more experimental or unusual projects.


I can agree with that, except one thing. The Naruto Shippuuden episode was just terrible and it destroyed the whole fight for me and many other people so you could had given a better example here.
However, I have doubts that they make a longrun out of it. We will have around 85 chapters when the anime begins to air, imo it's to soon.

Hmm, well I actually have not watched the fight in question since for the most part I am NOT a shounen guy, I just assumed it was a case of misunderstood artistic choices a la Ping Pong, where there were a lot of people shouting about how bad the art was when they couldn't understand that it was done that way on purpose. I have seen it referenced in sakuga appreciation and was aware that it was a collaboration between many big-name animators, so just assumed that it was the same ignorance in effect.
