Is that so? I guess I'm pretty much sold on the series, then. I could tell she wouldn't be as developed as a main character, but still since the OP she got my attention. I assumed she had more of a quirky/silly personality, but it seems I wasn't entirely right. Regardless, she looks like a reaaally nice character.

And.. I didn't want to spoil myself by reading that paragraph but I couldn't resist, heh.

 

 

On another subject, something I want to comment is that I don't like the suit/costume of the blaster guy Bakugou, specifically those gauntlets with the appearance of grenades. Maybe it's just me, but the impression I got of him is of a serious guy and thus those kind of accessories feel silly or otherwise out of place in him, whereas other heroes like the one with the engine legs have a suit with a seemingly professional look, so to speak. But that's from the impression I got from the first 5 episodes; maybe once I see and learn more about him, the costume will make sense then.

The next episode is actually perfect for that. We'll get to see some insight into why he is the way he is, why he's so aggressive towards Deku, and there's some stuff about his costume as well.

 

He's honestly one of the most interesting characters in the series, imo. Very well developed and complex as the series goes along, and he's still got plenty more room to grow.

Darn, the newest episode didn't get as far as I thought it would. Next one, then. We'll get to see more of Bakugou then.

Gonna be honest, forgot that Deku got so embarrassed around Uraraka in the beginning. They're just friends. Also, you feel she's a klutzy air-head? Not sure where you're getting that from. I think you'll probably like her later in the series, though. A large number of the cast get their fair share of fleshing out/development throughout the series.

 

I can't say the series isn't generic, though. It definitely is, but it just executes the tropes of a shounen series really well, imo.

That's what I love about this show.  From reading the manga, I can personally assure you that what this tries to do is take those standard copy-paste Shounen stereotypes and actually flesh them out like they should have been in the first place.

 

Every character is flawed, but the creators don't simply try to compensate for the flaws of their characters or ignore them.  Rather, every character will grow and develope over the course of it all.  The flaws were not just something that arose when the characters were drafted.  They were intentionally written in so that the characters had room to grow just like the protagonist.  That's exactly what you do when writing a story.  Anyone can have good traits, but flaws of a character are what bring them down to the reader's level.  They become more relatbale when you see them try to deal with these flaws, and it's interesting to see them overcome those flaws as the series progresses.  That's the secret to interesting characters, and it's something the manga handles brilliantly.

 

Episode 7 is going to be the first example of this.  I won't say much more than that for obvious spoiler reasons, but just know that everything you may find annoying with the series has been placed there on purpose at this early stage of the plot.  Unfortunately you may have to wait until season 2 to see Ochako grow, assuming season 1 really does end where we theorize it will get to.


Thanks Armz

Bakugou's VA is freaking awesome, on point this episode.

 

EDIT: So there's a new little PV introducing the guy you see in the OP, just wanted to share because I'm super excited to hear the full song this thing is teasing, it sounds really cool. Really like the VA, too, heard him before as Tsukishima in Haikyuu!! and Raku in Nisekoi.

Mineta was way funnier seeing him animated vs the manga. His VA is on point, too.

I don't know if anyone here happens to be caught up on the manga, but...

 

Chapter 94, do not fucking open this if you haven't read all the manga.

I want to say I find interesting how things are turning up in the anime. And maybe it's just me, but I can see how they are sort of deconstructing, or at least spicing up, the cliched/generic character tropes.

Always nice to see more of Tsuyu, although can't wait to see her displaying her abilities to a bigger extent.

Not to say this arc is boring or anything but things definitely get better from here in the future arcs (the one that just finished in the manga is by far the best), I can't wait for more to get adapted.
