Looks like we’ll have another manga plummet…
My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) could be disappointing its fans with its final arcunlike many other sagas that are achieving it and even exceeding the always insurmountable expectations of their fandom. Before continuing, this article will contain spoilers for the chapter.), so we recommend you read the manga that has come out in the last few hours on the MangaPlus by Shueisha service.
Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) remains in the memory of his fans as a work that made them excited to end with a controversial to mediocre ending, taking into account the general development of the story. And it seems now that Deku has managed to unleash the power of the second user of the One For Allwith this great power he could defeat Tomura Shigaraki or, rather, All For One, who has taken control of his body, the saga is approaching a similar cataclysm.
Having everything in its favor to become one of the favorite series for fans, both in the West and in Japan, combining classic super heroes and references to the world of Marvel, the series is close to something inevitable: the inconsistent pacing of their fights, developments, and villains. While in the beginning we had a lot of time to get to know Midoriya and her team, now we have to run against the tide.
Disappointing revelations in My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia)
And, in addition to the inconsistent rhythm, we cannot deny that they have wasted the movies and specials to show better revelations that excite their fans for the end of the saga. While other studios have also decided to create movies for their series that drive the plot of the series. main franchise, like Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, shows like My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) seem to be stuck in the moment of creating low-stakes filler plotlines that won’t affect the franchise as a whole. While movies without an overall impact on the franchise’s plots are nice, the saga could have benefited from an animated adaptation of his spin-off manga series My Hero Academia: Vigilantes.
In particular, the franchise could have adapted one of Shota Aizawa’s tragic experiences as a new hero. In My Hero Academia: Watchmen, Eraserhead is shown to be part of a trio of friends. One of those friends was Hizashi Yamada, better known as the hero Present Mic, and another boy named Oboro Shirokumo, another UA student who went by the name Loud Cloud. During their hero work study program, then-students Aizawa and Shirokumo experienced a lethal incident with a villain they weren’t prepared to handle, which resulted in Aizawa witnessing the latter’s death.
Little did Aizawa know at the time, but the doctor from All for One recovered Shirokumo’s body and turned him into the mist-covered nomu of the League of Villains known as Kurogiri.. However, the lack of preparation for this reveal felt like a disservice to the characters, making Eraserhead and Present Mic’s heartbreaking reactions to seeing what had become of their friend seem a bit underwhelming to anime fans.
Due to Studio Bones’ reliance on completely new and unconnected storyline animation for the My Hero Academia feature films, it’s unlikely that My Hero Academia: Watchmen will be just one movie; it is more likely to be a full anime series as the main story. The My Hero Academia anime may have failed its viewers who only watch the series before the release of its weekly episode, but there is still hope that the spin-off My Hero Academia: Watchmen can bring back the excitement in the future. If this is the case, anime fans will finally have a chance to understand the full extent of what motivates characters like Eraserhead and Present Mic in the series’ current timeline.
