The most recent issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has a tribute to Boku no Hero Academia from Boku to Roboko.
It seems that the creator of the manga Boku to Roboko, Shuhei Miyazaki, he already liked doing parodies of his series with that of Boku no Hero Academia from your colleague Kohei Horikoshi. I say this because of what happened to the cover of this year’s 46th issue of the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump from Shueisha.
In this one you can see both Izuku Midoriya What Tomura Shigaraki at opposite ends with one of their hands extended, almost about to touch.
The fact is that in the same number of this publication it was the turn of Miyazaki make a color page and took advantage of it to create a similar design. There you can see an alternate cover and who appears is Roboco, the robotic maid of Bondo Taira in a gesture very similar to Midoriya and Shigaraki.
This is not the first time this mangaka take some inspiration from the series Horikoshi. Something similar happened last September.
Back then Shuhei Miyazaki decided to draw the cover of the fifth volume of Boku to Roboko, known in English as Me & Roboco, as if it were the one corresponding to the first volume of Boku no Hero Academia.
That’s when it appears on the cover All Might with a wide smile and Blanket walking. The image is very similar, only those who appear are Roboco and Bondo. In addition to parodying this design and the new one they have a lot of tribute.
While the story of Izuku Midoriya is already in its final act, which corresponds to Roboco and Bondo it sure still has “a lot of rope.” But what is this proposal about? Well, it takes place in the not too distant future, where mechanical maids are common in every home.
Are the OrderMaids and Bondo dreams of having one. All due to the comments of his friends Gachi Gorilla and Motsuo Kaneo. It seems to be indispensable.
So the boy convinces his mother to get one. That is how Roboco He arrives at his house but it is very different from what he imagined. She is robust and muscular, as well as somewhat clumsy. But it’s probably the OrderMaid most powerful ever made.
This is how the adventures of both begin. Miyazaki had some comments about his participation in this issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in the section reserved for mangaka.
There he commented “a dream come true! Main color pages in the magazine! I’ll work really hard for the next time I’ll get the cover too! ”. Obviously, at this point it doesn’t look very likely that Boku to Roboko get an anime.
For that it is better that time passes until there is enough material. It would be interesting to see this manga with an animated adaptation. It would be a very funny thing. Thanks to @WSJ_manga by The advertisement.
