Todoroki has a little action in the 1st villain attack in the series, even he has some action in mock battle before 1st villain attack
Ah you're right. I forgot he does have a couple of panels early on. I was thinking about his whole development thing that occurred during the fight with Deku.

It's almost a spot on adaption, and frankly I'd prefer if they stuck to that and ended it after the usj arc, it's would be better than them rushing the absolute hell out of it.
True, but we haven't even cleared one chapter yet. I just wished they got a 2-cour right off the bat.

im pretty sure everyone knows that this is shonen. its gonna have generic approaches. but ii still love itt all the same. While the premise is generic, the execution is outsttanding. The characters are amazing.

this isnt gonna be for everybody. Nowadays people like to group things together instead of looking at it individually. TBH there isnt gonna be anything relativley new to anime in this anime. But its still amazing all the same.

So i guess its gonna get mixed reviews, but i doubt this is gonna get overrated Due to, like i said, it being shonen and all. Not to mention everyone knows its generic. All the same, its still good.

Also, i dont know if any of you remember, but the first chapter was INCREDIBLY long. I was scared that due to the manga fast pace the anime would be even more so. But rit now, imo, its at a perfect pace. I was afraid that there wasnt gonna be enough material for a second season, but so far. But at this pace, it will be just fine.

As of now, please try to refrain from looking at MAL. its a complete mess right now T-T

That was a great first episode.
I almost shed a tear with Deku when he discovered that he doesnt have a quirk, no joke.
Damn.
I have a good feeling about it.

HxH and Boku no hero are not similar at all. Not in tone, story, relationships, powers, tactics. Not now or ever.

All of what the guy said is vague things that can be applied to the majority of Jump manga.
Yeah, I figured as much.

No matter how I hard I thought about it, the comparison just seemed way too out there and far-fetched to make sense.

deku isnt rly a coward :v. I mean seriously, he has no powers in a school full of kids with powers. Whats he gonna do? Hell u saw him even go against them as a kid. He can be a bit hesitant, but the kids got guts for days.

As of now, please try to refrain from looking at MAL. its a complete mess right now T-T

It is true that the only people properly hating and dropping the series already seem to be anime-only, but it's probably due to the fact the first ep only adapted around half the first chapter, and people don't believe in building story nowadays. If it's not guns blazing in the first ep it's as good as trash.

But, since manga readers know what's to come (and there's a couple optimists) this series will probably get the love it deserves. And then be completely riddles with people calling it overrated, ah good times on MAL.

I loved this episode. A bit surprised it's being taken so poorly from it's first episode but it's an adaptation of less than the first chapter of the manga. I can't say you'll enjoy it but I love this series. And perhaps people went into this series expecting OPM 2.0 with flashy animation and action right off the gate? Bear in mind it's long running Shounen Jump title. At least give it more than an episode before swearing it off. The character must be fleshed out a little. Hell, not even the first episodes of HxH or Fullmetal Alchemist were great. I think the hype from people who actually read this manga and love it fed the wrong crowd. The seasonal Attack on Titan/Fate Stay Night/OPM hype crowd.

His backstory was stupid, and as a kid, he was an unstable jittery annoying brat. All the 'villians' were assholes for no reason. Animation looks kewl. It's an alright first episode, but I don't see it getting any better. I did laugh when that kid was crying tho xD

Even though he was a coward, I for some reason liked him more than the main character in Magi. I think Aladdin was his name? I hope this main character is actually more useful, but I don't know yet since this is just a set up episode, so I'm not going to jump to conclusions at all.

I have not watched many shonen, partly because all of the main characters are either the "dumb reckless but powerful" type or "look I have friends, and they give me power" type. Only character that breaks that archetype is Aladdin from Magi, kinda. I hope this guy in Boku no Hero is different from this. He seemed pretty intuitive. Reminds me of Shiro from log horizon but with more cowardliness. Again, can't really tell since this is ep 1.

I dare you to say one protagonist of shonen that was a coward and becomes courageous definitely. They always are or full of confidence or spineless characters that only gain determination in the action, but once everything is over, they return to what they are.

The thing about Boku no Hero it's that the author know how to write. The characters start one way but they have a evolution little by little, with nuances here and there. And the mudances are definitive.

is the main character really doesn't have any power ? if he is then that is a really brilliant story from the author. great idea. i was wondering 'what kind of story it is that makes it so popular' , no wonder, it was really great in my opinion.

"In the middle of all Espers, there is one normal human who wants to become a hero" i really like that tbh.

OP song was great too, i like it. the end was good.
looking foward for the next episode.

With all the hype this got, 1st episode didn't feel anything special.

I've kept thinking 'a cheaper OPM' (because of the artwork)

But I'm not giving up, I actually don't want to be disappointed by this anime

We manga readers hype it because it's a good series. If you are expecting something incredibly new and amazing, you will be disappointed.

Is this supposed to be filled with parodies? Because the characters that were shown on OP .. there was this tiny hero who looked like from cartoon network, the girl with floating arms like those from Skullgirls fighting game, the red haired guy who resembles Natsu from Fairy Tail, and the rest.

I love BONES.

A pretty good start.

I'm liking the colourful art used for the show. The animation's consistent and smooth too.

Deku will probably be a character that'll progress nicely as the show goes on. It sucks seeing him get bullied so easily by his whole classroom, especially the annoyingly arrogant Kacchan.

All Might is as much of a badass as I hoped that he'll be. Honestly, I wasn't expecting him to say "shit" out of nowhere though. XD

Whether or not this show will match the hype for it remains unclear, but I am hoping that it does.

I read the first five chapters of this manga before I dropped it. So this is me giving it a second chance. Forgot how much I cringe any time that all might guy shows up.

Ok episode I guess?

It's better than I expected, I'm really impressed! It's a shame that it will have only 13 episodes - especially when the pace is going so slowly (I'm not complaining).
Deku looked fucking adorable

Best first episode I've watched so far. Love the opening. Love the art style and the animation. Deku was such a cute kid. Especially when he was rocking back and forth in the chair.

i mean the first episode doesn't warrant anything close to the 8.3 starting MAL score.

Woah, that Kacchan... Calm your tits, shounen.
At least, it look like he'll get rekt by slime dude next episode.

I'm still not really sure what's all the hype around that show around. But I. Can't. Not. Succomb. To. The. Hype!!

I wonder if All Might is an american weaboo. He definitely seem to have a boner for TEXAS!! America.

With this pacing it looks like we'll only get to UJS. So if there really is only one cour, the first season will be pretty lackluster compared to what it could have been

Haven't actually read the manga because too busy nowadays and reduced to watching anime only instead (can play in the background).

The criticisms this episode gets from the vocal minority is quite funny though as I thought this series perfectly captured the shounen spirit. It's definitely above average in terms of anime series I have recorded watching since I've joined MAL (8-9 years).

And people hating on the MC because he's a coward... I can only shake my head and respect your opinion based on the *first* episode of a shounen series.... like seriously?
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The MC alrdy has a complete character. I could write stories about him....
The monologue he had after the kacchan bullied him in class n burnt his notebook...

This is like One Punch Man.
Dat backstory, Midoriya doesn't have "Quirk" (well he obviously fucking does)
That escalated too fast, we see a green monster go in on Midoriya.
"It only hurts for 45 seconds" "You'll fell better after that" ok.
Texas smash. Finding this quite similar to OPM.
How is he flying so much with just a jump, well Saitama went to space and jumped back to earth so whatever lel.
Well that pacing was slow, the episode was fine though.
I feel the art and animation can be better, it's not bad in any way so let's see what happens.
The audio is good

Lol I applaud how some of you always manage to make pacing a issue one way or another.

I''m gonna love this, the MC is the type you wanna root for so ye all is good. Kaachan tho. Ok first of all, I thought he is the MC's mom intil they showed his face and I went wth. I bet he's gonna turn into tsundere good guy later, not interested. Now let's how good the female lead is, seems quirky and fun so ye I'm interested.

All I'll say is almost all the characters are actually very fleshed out, don't hate Kacchan too much (fave char bias right here)

(Also Katsuki Bakugou is his full name, Kacchan is the nickname Izuku gave him, like Deku is the nickname Katsuki gave Izuku)

Is there a problem with an MC having realistic character traits? God forbid the writer wanted to put in some semblance of realism into a character. I don't know if you are a literally god among men, but normal people would get pretty cowardly when having their entire world shattered and being bullied by literal superhumans.
