My Hero Academia has become a series close to my heart. I've been reading ever since the first chapter came out, and it has been growing into something great. It is the manga that I most look forward to reading weekly, so I thought I might as well start a thread on the series. I always want to talk about it anyways.

So I guess any fan of the series are happily able to talk about it here if you like. If you aren't, then spoilers ahead most likely! Then again, why aren't you reading it?! What are you doing?!

To start I suppose, here are the colour pages from this week's issue; pretty neato.






Question Time!...if you'd like

1. Favourite Character?
2. Favourite Quirk shown? (can be tied in with the first question if needed)
3. If you had to choose any Quirk you can dream up for yourself, what would it be?

Fan of this recent Manga I will join you on your quest of knowledge of Boku no Hero Academia.
A series full of serious action, with a variety of characters with unique characteristic and interesting quirks.
Of course I'm up to date with Manga.
So what are the first general questions that I need to answer?

Why aren't I reading it? Well, considering I have 500+ chapters of a different series to catch up on..... I kid.

Remember you talking about it, so I'll go ahead and check it out then, the description grabbed my attention so I'll probably be playing catch up then~ ^^'

Ah I knew I had forgotten something in my initial post, I'll add the questions in now!

Its a great manga, I am a big fan. My favourites would have to be:

1. Shotou Todoroki
2. Stain
3. Shouta Aizawa (Eraserhead)
4. Fumikage Tokoyami
5. Izuku Midoriya

With Toshinori (All Might) and Eijirou Kirishima as honourable mentions. This manga reminds me of Part 1 Naruto only its far faster paced, for better or worse.

So according to the translations, the colour pages told us that there is going to be a Popularity Poll. I'm willing to bet that Todoroki is going to win, but my personal choice would be Bakugou. I just love the way he gets on.

Anyways, the chapter was awesome. Stain took a Detroit Smash and was still smiling. I know it was only 5% of Izuku's power, but it's the most he can use at this time, so he's basically beaten Izuku's already by those terms.

Todoroki showing up must mean that he went to work with Endeavor, as I assumed. I think he'll have a better time against Stain than the others, given the fact that he's mostly a long distance fighter, and Stain's Quirk relies on blood.

I really hope Todoroki doesn't beat Stain though. I'm sure he won't, but I'm still worried. Can't wait for next week!

^ there's no way midoriya'll beat stain. he knows this himself better than anyone and that's why he went for a stalling tactic can called up todokori who's better suited given his long range attack quirk.

but I think midoriya could actually use far more than 5% of his power, only then he'd start breaking bones again. given the dire situation I wouldn't wonder too much if this would happen once more, though.
he, the true and real hero, wouldn't worry about his own breaking bones if the lives of others are at stake.

as for the popularity poll, I predict this'll be the outcome:
1) all might 2) midoriya 3) todokori 4) bakugou 5) eraser head 6) iida 7) urakawa (sp??) 8) ????

let's see whether or not I've got something right next week, I'm usually pretty horrible with predictions.

as for my fav characters, I like the MC midoriya very much, I think todokori is interesting and he just needs a bit more character development to get out of jerk territory, urakawa is a great female character but I dislike bakugou since he's arrogant and annoying (as always, I hate annoying characters)

overall this series is doing great and makes all the right moves. I dearly hope it'll continue like this in the future.

^ Yeah, that's what I meant. I'm sure Midoriya could unleash far more than 5%, but his body just wouldn't be able to handle it. It's probable that the more All Might loses his powers, the more power Midoriya will be able to handle and adapt to.

In terms of the Stain and Todoroki match up, its clear that Stain may have some form of trouble dealing with his long range attacks. However I'm betting that Stain is able to countermeasure that quite well. It's custom to work on any weaknesses your quirk may have against other types.

I don't think they will beat Stain, but I think at most, they'll be able to fend them of, or Stain will let Iida and the other hero live due to Todoroki and Midoriya's courageous acts. I'm certain we will have more Stain to come in future arcs.

It's also good to notice that Todoroki is using his fire powers, which is probably a sign of him making up his mind on whether or not he should. It's also probably reflective of the fact that he chose to work with Endeavor. Makes me curious as to how the talk with his mother went.

Great chapter, I feel like Stain is still out all their leagues, he should be up there with the top heroes but I do think that Todorokis long range style of fighting is a good counter to him. I am glad that 5% of Midoriyas strength is not enough to so much as dent Stain, I anticipate Midoriya to have to use around 20% to do any visible damage in the future. I expect Gran Torino and Endiavor to arrive when Todoroki gets downed given both their students are present and they where both with each other last time we saw them. Endiavor will have a go at Stain but the Hero Killer will escape. I wonder if Stains power is absolute, like, if he got to affect All Might would he be perminetaly paralysed or can he overcome it?

Also like to point out that Stain gives off a Hisoka vibe (Less charismatic though) given how he leaves characters with potential alive for future battles.

As for the Poll, I expect it to look a little like this:

1. Midoriya
2. Todoroki
3. Bakugou
4. All Might
5. Eraserhead

^ I also think in the end grand torino, endeavor a/o other professional heroes'll come and save iida and the rest while stain retreats.
since stain appears to be incredibly strong it's far to early to defeat him already, he'll probably stick around and pose as a big bad for some time.

I wondered about this; midoriya is using the detroit smash in this chapter (with very nice capital letter accompany the "SMASH") but this is all might's move and style to fight. of course he and midoriya have the same power but point is; wasn't it supposed to be a secret that midoriya and all might share a connection? if midoriya renamed the attacks it'd be less obvious. give it the name of european cities :)heehee). jokes aside, it'll be easy for everyone who witnesses midoriya to do battle to make the all might connection.
