Is this gonna be a parody of OPM?


Nope, it's an actual super hero theme series that get some inspiration from Western comics.
Don't forget Naruto. The author a big fan of Naruto.

What do you mean by timeslot?


The My Hero Academia anime will be airing in the 'Nichigo' timeslot, which means Sundays at 5pm. This timeslot consistently holds 2-cour anime.

Wow, I'm actually quite amazed by the fact thay they name timeslots. And that those exist. Anyway, thanks for the reply! Learned something new :)

Every anime in the timeslot in which this is airing has had 24 episodes, so I don't think you need to worry.

Anyway, PV looks pretty good. Liking the thick outlines and faithfulness to the manga style.

Looks great and all, really though props to Bones.
But I'm scared that they won't be able to fully bring out this series potential if it'll only have 12 episodes. It might probably have enough material for a 2 cour. But than a second season might not be a possibility.

I thought you came up with it.
No, it's a term used quite a lot. Check the synonyms in the manga database: http://myanimelist.net/manga/35243/Haikyuu

Also note, you started off talking to one person, and ended up talking to another.

Oh right, stupid me, I checked out the anime's page but didn't border with the manga's.
Yeah sorry about that question.

Yeah probably. I guess Japan thinks that's cool.

Dissapointed it's not Tatsuya Kato, I was expecting to be him since a rip-off of this was used in the PVs.


I like Kato, but outside of Horizon he's done nothing on the level of Hayashi's best stuff.


I know this is subjective af, but i find hilarious how im really familiar to Kato's music but i havent listened anything of Horizon (his so called best score ever) yet, and i havent touched anything of Hayashi either. Let's see...

SO MUCH HYPE!!! CAN'T WAIT!!! >_<

Oh I know that magazine. Didn't know 'Jump Series' was a term though.
Yeah I took the 2-3 manga chapters for 1 episode and so it should be just enough for a 2-cour right.
Oh lol, AssClass must be Assassination Classroom, than what does HQ stand for?
Well that's odd, didn't expect them to make an anime when it probably won't even do well.
But I guess if it boosts the manga sales it's logical.
HQ means Haikyuu

I'm so excited for the OST, I love what Yuuki Hayashi did for Haikyuu!!
everything is looking so good!

I like them both but overall I'd pick Hayashi too. The first show I've watched with his OSTs was Gundam Build Fighters and I've been keeping an eye on him since then.

Jump Series could also mean
Weekly Young Jump(not all series from it even get an anime) so its better to be a bit more specific

Ah, I'm so excited! PV looks so cool, definitely watching since I have been following the manga for a while now!

Feb 28, 2016 4:14 PM by hopeless408
