    Kinda reminds me of Onepunch Man, what with all the ranked Heroes and the strange powers that have appeared randomly.

    But still, I thought it was a fun first chapter.

    I hope this is not a case of good set up but bad story, I mean it's easy to get lured into this manga it's so flashy, but I fear comedy can overtake it easily, I sure hope for more fleshing out of serious themes, I mean the set up itself is kind of serious, the "belonging nowhere" character is there, now there are many ways to play him ... it is worth a shot, provided people also trust the recent Jump rankings the manga got.

    I hope the story does not destroy itself for trying to be overly creative or overly funny and over the top. It can turn tasteless easy.

    I hope that scans will come out faster now, so that the scanlations will be up-to-date with raw releases. The raws really look promosing.

    The concept - superheroes - is really good and though I never liked whining characters, Midoriya is somewhat different. He reminds of Tsuna in KHR but he's less annoying. After Omagadoki Dobutsuen and Sensei no Bulge, the mangaka finally has success

    Re: Boku no Hero Academia by Horikoshi Kouhei

    I can see pretty good potential in this manga... it started with a fresh concept of everyone out there with individuality of their own and the protagonist is a whining character and is characterized pretty good I must say.. I liked the art and detailing of this manga for first chapter .... Generally I see that not much fine art mangaka use in first few chapters and once the series picks up only they get serious with it ...

    I am looking forward to it..

    SMAASH

    Midoriya 0 points but he is the true hero. He decided to save someone else instead of running away with everyone else. This has a lot of potential. This chapter had a very good pace. It wouldn't have been good to stretch this out over more than one chapter. Anyway, to those who don't read the raws. I can tell you: it'll become more interesting :-)
