Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!)

Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia.

I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the series, that we have some place to talk about it while we are watching it? (I never used a forum before maybe thats more of a chat/discord kind of topic idk)

Anyways, it would be fun to talk about our impressions with someone who is also experiencing MHA for the first time! :D

I must say the first 6 episodes are really good!!

Deku is a very endearing character and ochako is just so kawaii ^.^

I love All might's non hero look, its so funny xD

Having watched the whole first season of MHA, I can say the fight in the school's rescue simulation grounds against the real villains was SOO COOL!

I loved the cleverness of the writers in how to incorporate Mineta's quirk in the fight in the water area.

I also loved the Momo/Denki pair a lot. Momo's creation quirk is pretty neat because she has to know all the molecular science behind the objects.

I was so afraid for Eraser Head at the end but he really fought very well.

At this point, I'm getting pretty worried for All Might. He says he only has 1 hour of stamina left... (no spoilers please!)

As any of you watched the OVAs yet? I'm off to watch the first one!

Its a pretty awesome show that has in fact grown quite strongly on me. I admit when I first watched it didn't think it was something I would get into it. With that said I quickly developed a love for many of the characters. It is also a series that really teaches quite a few good lessons as well. I'm glad your enjoying it. :)

I don’t believe the first 2 OVAs are licensed in the US. I watched them on Youtube, but the picture was only about a third of the screen and terrible quality. I was hoping they would be extras on season 2 or 3 disc release, but nope. A shame because I enjoyed them both. 

I haven’t seen the 3rd OVA. I suppose the movie really wasn’t that bad, it just didn’t feel all that special because the awesomeness of the tv series spoiled me. I was also feeling over hyped because it was the first time I’d seen a non-Ghibli anime in a theater.

Edit: seems I was wrong. Don’t see the third OVA listed as an extra either.

Well now that explains why I didn't see them. I watched the series on Crunchyroll. The movies must not have been listed.

The ova are really funny and for some reason they break the 4th wall a lot plus we get some dakuxtsuyu moments

It ticks me off when they license a series but the OVAs aren’t part of the deal

I wish that tsuyuxdeku moment would of lasted just couple frames longer!

Tsuyu broke the awkardness a couple seconds too early for it to be real ship material for me.

Just finished watching the first episode of season 4. Did a much better job of summarizing the important story points so far & introducing class 1A while still being entertaining for viewers who’ve been there from the start and not feeling like just a recap (a perfect example of how it SHOULD be done). And as usual the new OP & ED are great. I’ve said before I’m expecting great things from this season (which will be 2 cour) and it’s off to a good start. 🤩

Im hoping they add more of  Jiro, so far they haven't really shown much of her.  Theres rumors also that the invisible girl is secretly working for the villains. Though this is just a rumor.  The biggest problem with my hero is, every season they have to explain the plot and characters just to fill in time. Its like people already know who they are and what is going on. And new comers are just going to watch season 1 anyway.

I don’t think it is by necessity that recap episodes are often bad/boring. I was actually impressed by the number of points it touched on (even a nod to the movie), yet it didn’t feel forced and was actually an effective passing of the torch story. And even though the intros for much of the cast were short, they were actually amusing anecdotes that allowed their personalities to shine through, not just their quirks (wish the movie had done more of that). Compare that to last season which seemed to drag on across a couple episodes. Or to the first episode of the recently debuted Assassin’s Pride which spent most of it’s time on the MC’s inner monologue to bring the viewer up to speed on the setting. Amazing the difference effective writing can make.

Once they start showing recaps every season though, most people are just going to skip half the ep, since that's what it is. Its also only a matter of time before the fandom of Bubble girl starts

I dunno, it felt like a recap to me and I'm not complaining but I would have found it more useful if they recapped the story more than re-explaining everyone's names and quirks. The characters are the easiest bit to remember. I really didn't need that montage of class 1-A.

I thought the 'recap' was done very well. But, what I kinda expected it to be a bit shorter so that they also show some new stuff. Something like half an episode recap and the other half something new would have been great.

I don’t know, the only ep I can think of that didn’t seem to have Deku at the center was the one about Tsuyu’s internship (actually a bit disappointed that it sounds like we won’t see Sirius & Selkie again). But there are a number of new characters in the OP & PVs I assume will be in the other student’s work studies (Tsuyu, Ochaco, Tsukoyomi and the hardening guy were all mentioned). But yeah, looks like the focus of the first cour anyway will be Deku proving

to Nighteye & himself

that he’s worthy to be All Might’s successor. Wouldn’t be surprised if he comes out publicly as such by season’s end. Also have to say scrawny All Might still appears in costume a lot in the OP for a guy who’s supposed to be retired.

They hinted in the last episode that there will be something up with Allmight. I assume that it will probably have to do with his losing the powers, and probably also suffering severe health repercussions. So I guess that Allmight will play less of a role as a hero this season. But I am curious to see what's up with what they hinted at.

      Any recommendation on anime where the character is weak but does epic battles and stuff?
    • By FandomQueen18
      So they released the new PV annoucnign that shaman king will be getting a reboot, like FMA brotherhood style, and I for one am super excited especially I grew  up with this anime and even read the manga, and the manga is absolutely amazing, so i was hoping others like me are also excited that shaman king is getting a new chance at showing what kind of anime it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyzqCA8aVSo

      Hi, just testing the waters here to see how popular this forum really is
      but I would really hate leaving my post without replies for days
      if nobody knows this short lived anime.
      I want anime fans to  be aware of the shows I discovered
      so one day they'll expect future projects from me
      based on the shows I talked about here and since
      some of these shows might be too taboo for the family friendly community out there,
      Im also working on a clean cut/edited version where adult anime shows can be
      easy and safe to watch without worrying the taboo parts lol.
       
      Anyways, I want to get down to the anime I wanted
      to discuss and show off screenshots here if nobody minds!  
       
      Adult anime are not my favorite type of shows
      but they have a very interesting lore that could have 
      made them more famous or a potential future
      if the writers concerned the family audience instead of targeting adults back then.
       
      To some people especially Americans who might have seen this before
      and thought it was just a 90's series but I can bet that many English viewers
      might not be aware of the fact this show once started life as a 4 volume
      comic series in the late 80's!
       
      Since the original comics was never released here in English,
      nobody knows at least the American fans won't have any idea
      how the original story turned out because the anime adaption itself
      was a very poor adaptation! it's a Horrible shame for this story that could have seen
      better success if not for the unnecessary nasty content that made Maya known infamous for
      and the likely reason why it was quickly forgotten after the 2 episode anime and the 4 comics.  
       

      Maya is 18 years old who got tricked by a mysterious fortune teller, he tricked her into looking
      at the crystal ball that fool people thinking he's an ordinary fortune teller but "UNFORTUNATELY" (pun lol)
      he's not and now she end up in another planet probably a lot of people don't know about!

      Maya is like a combination between She-Ra and Prince Adam
      where she starts out as a plain and simple young woman
      who might be still in her late school years or just in time
      ready for graduate, she eventually becomes the "Most powerful woman in  the universe" (another pun lmao)
      when she finds that mysterious sword she pulled out after getting herself sucked in by a magical portal
      inside the bad guy's castle, beats me why in the heck would it be locked inside
      awaiting for the hero while she was held prisoner there? This is one of those scenes that will
      continue to confuse us for years to come! since we won't know anyway lol.
       
      Here some screenshots of Maya's cool transformation! Does her look scream out She-Ra or He-Man to
      all of us fans here? lol.  


      But Maya is not the only character in the show, of course! Here the others below I want to introduce to the community
      of today's anime era of the most forgotten adult anime characters in the 80's comic and the 90's anime adaption! 

      Heckle and Jaeckle are named after 2 very old cartoon characters Heckle and Jeckle better known in the West long time ago.
      Heckle and Jaeckle are not birds but frog-looking folks who acted like couple of perverts working for the evil slave king
      at first until after they sold Maya for 5 million, she was later taken hostage inside the castle and they rescued her,
      eventually becoming her helpful partners but not very long when when they somehow got lost
      in the woods and she was taken again. They're not much of a fighter but least one appeared to be armed with a axe.
       

      Leyna, one of my favorites!  
      She works inside the castle of the bad guys where she constantly cook to fed slaves held in the castle,
      she becomes fast friends with Maya and even has the key to escape! But they didn't make it (TOO BAD! game over lmao)
      Not much is known about her other than working for the villains even if she has no evil intentions, she does appear
      to be likely another slave sold to them but instead cooking and not tied up in chains or torture chairs lmao. 
      In the comic, she stayed in the castle while Maya successfully escaped.
       

      I don't know her name, she always appear very short and briefly through the episodes, where she seem to act as a spy!
      What is her background story and how in the hell does she know Maya prior to the current events?

      The mysterious fortune teller! Nothing else known about him other than the fact that Heckle calls those people sorcerers, they pick up people from Earth and teleport them to the mysterious planet possibly working for the evil king to bring down more slaves from Earth to sell!

      I don't know his name but doesn't look like Marth or Ike? He is also searching for Maya for whatever reason. He doesn't seem to be evil and more likely from Earth or another planet! Again, its a mystery how he knows Maya prior to the current event!

      "Roys our boys!" lmao XD
       
      Below are some of the unknown bad guys! More pics to come later!


       

      About the anime, this was only released in adult stores on VHS and DVD, a very rare thing to find across Texas unless you live in rich areas like maybe California or Florida but Im not sure about New York or Washington since I never been to those states. 
      I censored the box in case the community is sensitive about adult content here and I understand that.
      This is called Cool Devices, it was out during late 90's and only dubbed in America,
      it was officially banned in Canada which means nobody knows or even aware of Maya there!
      Canada has this very weird thing about banning adult content anime or adult shows
      which makes me wonder how Canadians manage to live without hentai or adult videos there, guess its a sexual free society there
      or the fact maybe most Canadians are asexual? Or maybe adult anime was banned there to avoid confusion children for cartoons?
      Who knows the laws of Canada there lol.  The VHS version includes 2 episodes and 1 episode of the famous Kite! This short
      would be the first of the Kite series and it later gets its own full length anime movie few years, making it the most popular short
      of the Cool Devices! The others went long forgotten and down to obscurity with only few of the other Cool Device stories
      getting their own comics or anime.  
       
      Here some covers of the original comics that never saw release outside Japan!
      I think they were released around 1989 or 1988? The comics are very hard to find
      as only few of them can be found online on ebay but they're fairly common
      on Yahoo Japan auctions.
       


       
      One more thing, is a screenshot of the sword! Looks like the Falcion from the popular Fire Emblem games does it? lol.

       
      Thats all for now but look forward to more Maya posts in the near future from me!
