I didn't want to pick up any more anime, but my mind told me to not watch BlazBlue for a while. This one I had heard about, but knew nothing of, so I was completely blind for this one.
Same Rules as last times, but for those who don't know:
1.Spoilers are abounding here folks. If you want to watch it blindly... go watch it. Spoilers are here.
2. Depending on the Anime, this can get NSFW. There is some strong language, but in the episode, it happens once.
3. I am watching the subbed version.
Well, does the world of all heroes fair well, or end up in deep despair? This is my 1st impressions of My Hero Academia.
"All men are not created equal."
"This was the reality I learned about society at the young age of 4."
"However, that was my first and last setback."
Izuru Midoriya is a student who has always wanted to be a superhero, after seeing All Might, the number one hero save lives in a tragic incident when he was young. On his way to school, he catches a fight between a villain and a few heroes. Superpowers in this world are a common occurrence, and a Superhero is a common job, as they get paid by the government. In the fight, a rookie hero called Mt.Lady saves the day, and since she not seen her before, Izuru notes her down in his notebook. He's a fanboy, and this makes him relatable, but his back story is more tragic, but we will get to that.
I love the theme song. The Day sounds amazing to open the show and it's done by Porno Graffiti, the same guys that did the 1st opening to the 2003 FullMetal Alchemist, and I love that as well. The intro is well animated, check it out ASAP. I love the effort the Japanese put into their intros for anime and Kamen Rider.
Anyways, we then meet Katsuki Bakugo, a student that can use fire powers and want's to go to UA. Because of his quirk, he is able to burn certain objects and wants to surpass the highest paid hero. However, Izuru wants to be a hero, because of the highest paid hero, All Might. This is where tragic backstory kicks in, and boy is it tragic.
Izuru was born without a certain toe joint, with makes him quirkless. This affects because he is not able to inherit his parents' powers or create a fusion of both. This was hard for him because he had only one dream; become a hero. He has the heart for it too, so, it's sad to see it go to waste.
Speaking of which, I find it very enjoyable that the boy is the hyperactive one for once! Izuru is a good balance to my usual dose of Kamen Rider. Bakugo is the self-righteous prick which is enjoyable to see, and All Might is neat but he has little to no character in this episode.
Overall Good. My first Shounen anime turns out to be a good one. Let me know what you guys think!
