We need to talk about Boku no Hero Academia and how shit it is

I’ve kind of had enough.


My Hero Academia? More like My Hero SUCKademia!

Cursed image for a cursed thread.

Let’s make a list of why Academia is bad:

  • The powers are boring
  • The drama’s too fake — everyone knows the limp-wristed heroes are gonna win easily as always
  • The villains are uninteresting pushovers
  • A bunch of random high schoolers are somehow OP as fuck, despite simultaneously being weak as balls — none of this is earned
  • The world makes no sense and the shit world-building doesn’t help
  • The whole thing reads like a DC Kids fanfic that got rejected before it was even submitted, but somehow worse
  • The fandom

Look, I get why this show is popular. If this was my first shounen I would think it’s cool too. I mean, wow, having a main character whose power is based on how hard he grimaces? There’s a fucking concept.

haha wan punch amirite my fellow nerds?


That’s basically what korogiri’s doing let’s be honest

You know why they continuously list out the characters’ quirks every time they show up on screen? It’s because the target audience is too fucking stupid to remember the half-dozen abilities that aren’t emblazoned across the characters’ poorly drawn faces.

Fropply looks like someone who managed to fail out of a Downs Syndrome Academy.

This despite having the most allergically autistic fans of any form of media aside from Steven Universe. I’d show you a picture, but my site deserves better. Try googling “reddit meetup” and you’ll get the gist. The Academia fans are the ones who should really not have taken their shirts off.

Shiragaki has the right idea.

Honestly, I don’t much like to talk about other people’s appearances, because there are very few people as naturally pretty as me. But Academia groupies, you do have the capability to not show up as sperg-spewing mental midgets to anyone in your path. Don’t cosplay in malls. Don’t wear the stupid retard-signal merch outside. And stop drawing your god awful fanart and posting it on tumblr; your art teacher told you you’d never amount to anything for a fucking reason.

You all are literally the reason I voted for Trump, and the only thing I regret about that is he hasn’t put you all in the fucking camps yet.

But one more supreme court justice and we have some fucking manga libraries to burn.

Okay, sorry, I think I might have come across a little strong right there. Let’s roll it back a bit and find some common ground.

See, I’m politically flexible, I’d be fine with throwing you in the gulag too.

Not fucking once have any of this series’ fans ever thought to themselves, “oh, I wonder what other series are like”?! You are literally worse than all those fat, middle-aged Ghibli fans who totes love anime — all two of the tired Nausicaä retreads they’ve seen. Actually, those are probably your fucking parents, which explains a fucking lot.

Time for some fucking education. Here’s some classic shounen manga you absolutely need to read if you wanna have an informed opinion on the series:

  • Hunter X Hunter
  • Tokyo Akazukin
  • Narutaru
  • Onani Master Kurosawa
  • Anne Freaks

Assuming you’re illiterate and can only watch dubbed shounens, I’ll also accept the following:

  • Hunter x Hunter (2011)
  • Harmonie
  • Shigofumi
  • Shinsekai yori
  • Jormungand

Get through those and we’ll talk. Till then, I’m keeping this gate to GoodTasteLand closed.

Soz, nerds.

  1. you must be real bored if you’re trying to talk to teenagers who didn’t know what anime was until last week
    fantastic recommendations though

  2. How can you shit on bnh for being bland and then rec Jormungand? Do you not see the irony there? How can you rec the 11th iteration of hunter hunter over the 99th? Bigger numbers are better numbers.

    Props for sticking out for the Ghibli fans though. I love my one-dimension mainstream children’s movies and they’re not boring or dull or made by some pedo at all. They’re art. The guy won like an Oscar or something, the most prestigious of awards. Those works are so complex and avant-garde they move the industry forward and my girlfriend– did I mention her yet? She looooooves Ghibli. Normally when I watch a complex movie I NEED to have the commentary on or I JUST WONT GET IT. I NEED the constant reminder which sound-effects are added post-production and just how historically accurate this dramatization of actual events has been compared to the real deal. And did I just see you shitting on, dare I say it, best girl just because she’s related to some frogs? How fucking dare you? You know what you are? You’re just a moe lover. I can see it already. You don’t like it because it’s not moe enough. You know who was right? Not Miyazaki. But that aside. Jormungand just wasn’t that good dude. I’m sorry to break it to you.

    • Jeez yall, drawing all this stuff is hard enough and animating even more. So what if some parts of it suck do yall hafta be such lil bitches to complain ehat u think sucks or not so violently. Jus feedback politely and not be stupidass critics who probs cant draw half as well as those artists. Anime doesnt have to haf a real type and defination yknow. Yall just being rude at this point

  3. I have watched too many shows and this season sucks carbonized dick so yeah I’d say this show is doing the easiest job in the history of anime that is not letting me fall asleep for twelve full minutes once a week.

    • i kinda agree but you’re annoying. your tone in this made the matter in my stomach curdle, and you come off incredibly narcissistic. i hope this is irony

  4. yeah i tried mai hero academiwhatver and i hated it my friend loves it because he never watched yuyuhakusho or dbz not dbs btw and (of course the only way to watch dbz is in english with the bruce falconer score i personally hate the japanese version of dbz anyway)but im fine with naruto and a plethora of shows that aren’t dubbed. my friend started out with naruto as his first shounen that’s prob why he likes this dumb series and he also likes one punch man which i also don’t like because its way too goofy like that bobobooobo show and of course like zero acadamy i cant tell if they tried way too hard or way too little on the dumb character designs in both of the shows

  5. You forgot the greatest shounen of all time: Ramen Fighter Miki.

    You can’t convince me otherwise.

    P.S. Yeah, I still check on your site sometimes; hope you’re doing well Dark (if you and Soup remember me lulz).

    • Course I remember ya. Boston sucks, but we had fun. Sakuracon stole my heart though – they should really reschedule those.

      As for me, I’m living, except now the alcoholism isn’t ironic. Topically, Ramen Fighter Miki helped with that.

      Haven’t seen Soup since the cops put out that Amber Alert in Portland. Sure it’s just a coincidence.

  6. I come back here after a long time and see you hating on my currently most hated show.
    One of my friends is only talking about this show, cosplays it to every con (ofc they crossplay as the guys who are shipped with each other by her and her friends), adds me to obnoxious group chats with sexual rpgs of the characters, starts to identify herself as one of the characters and wants to be called by their name even outside of cons and cosplay.
    I still like my friend, but I hate this show passionately. Send help

  7. i did indeed just GIS “reddit meetup” and was not disappointed AND got a free confidence boost.

    but you say that AND you still go to anime conventions which are equally weird, if not moreso.

    tl;dr – dont meet up with other people that you meet on the internet

    • I dunno, I’d say of the people I meet 1/3 are friends-tier, 1/3 are chill, and 1/3 have an ankle bracelet. Ain’t bad odds.

  8. Ok ok ok so imma just say that i made this account just to comment this so…

    >:< Ok people have strong opinion im not gonna hate bt if you dont like something you dont have to share it to the inter webs Like god damn people.

    • I put $100 on your fag boyfriend leaving your fat ass with an unwanted Down’s baby and two STDs. And when you take my order please remember that when I say I want my beefy cheesy burrito grilled I mean I want it fucking grilled. I will fill out that survey, fam; don’t test me.

  9. The way the fights work and how some characters with weird quirks can make it so far is not very good.
    Let’s take the invisible girl, how did she destroy the robots in the entrance exam? Yes she is invisible, but that doesn’t give her any attacking power needed to destroy a jouse sized robot.
    Also it makes no sense what the characters can survive in a fight. Most have very specialized quirks like talking with animals, there is no general concept of somethink like qi in Dragonball, Yet they survive extreme falls or they survive being smashed against rocks. Yes, some of the strenght type of characters should survive that, but often it makes no sense.

  10. Sorry to be rude or anything but those stupid reasons stated that the anime is bad are totally suckish and dumb to even place out from a writer like you. Let take them one by one

    The powers are boring- who thinks like this the power system is too amazing for me imagine powers like frog, navel laser, pop balls in the anime that the powers will be dumb but in the series that powers are ones to compete with
    The drama’s too fake — hmmph, wrong they don’t win easily watch if you what to be fair to the anime the S3 E10-11 you will that even the strongest hero there All might almost died in the episode and gave up his whole powers to save others. if you don’t believe me check it yo’self
    The villains are uninteresting pushovers-
    you are an uninteresting pushover by saying this and there is nothing to say than the villains are as amazing as other villains in the dc and marvel univers, if you like deadpool’s personality go check out twice in the series, love Deathstroke go check out Hero killer stain
    A bunch of random high schoolers are somehow OP as fuck, despite simultaneously being weak as balls — none of this is earned
    The world makes no sense and the shit world-building doesn’t help
    The whole thing reads like a DC Kids fanfic that got rejected before it was even submitted, but somehow worse
    The fandom
    All the remaining are you just being sad and depressed about you not being able to make something as wonderful as this. NOTE this isn’t my first shonen anime i have seen DBZ, naruto, Bleach before this but i still grade this as well as watching those anime. So three advice thou shall give to thee
    – Stop being a mofo and watch things from both perspectives before complaining about something
    – Watch the anime with a pen and paper write down the pros and cons of the anime TRUTHFULLY or i will do so for you unexperienced writer
    – Finally before you do this to another anime that is great but you are blind to see that check it out and right

    NOTE i will give you a challenge watch the whole anime from S1 to S3 all 63episodes and tell me your reponse

    • I’m sorry you have autism, and I’m sorry you’re racist, but you really shouldn’t take your frustrations out on a respected anime blogger such as myself.

      Boku no My Hero Academia is objectively boring and bad, lacking in all but elementary originality. The only good thing about the series is the bloodslut, but her containment vessel only has as much value as its fans: none. Slow, stupid, and entirely inauthentic, the series is “babby’s first” for the short bus.

      If you honestly like this series, you are beyond redemption and should seriously consider suicide. Your existence is a net loss for the world.

      • Ughs ppl like you are honestly such stuck up lil bitches. Like who the fuck care abt your weird beliefs in wst real anime suppose to be like dont gimme that propaganda shitz i dont hafta fucking listen to your half assed explaination jus keep it to yourself. Like some uglyass motherfucker like you can ever understand the fucking effort and bloodsweattears behind this kinda animes. You probably cant even draw cool shit like that u shittyass fuck

  11. my hero academia is overhyped boring generic bullshit and i cant stand its tryhard appeal to western autists. A take on Dc super heroes with japanese cliches. On another note I cant stand isekai its comparable to shovelware. My favorite genres are mecha, mahou shoujo and shonen.
    People who like hero academia have shit taste.

  12. You consider yourself a “respected” anime blogger… You shove your political bias into your anime reviews and then get super aggressive against the classics. As a middle aged man who enjoyed Princess Mononoke growing up, I must tell you to go fuck yourself.

    • A middle-aged man getting upset in the comment section of a chinese cave painting deciphering audit website. lmao what a faggot I bet not even your wife’s children respect you.

  13. You’re not even giving an actual decent review. I, myself, see problems with the show; but, I’m not slandering the fans or cussing out a show without any real criticism. If you’re going to try and “review” the show, actually review it and give some decent and accurate criticism. This is just hate. This is just some troll on the internet thinking that they’re cool and that they’re opinion is superior to the general population. Let me tell you, you’re probably aren’t a perfect as you think or say you are. Why don’t you try and get a grip on reality? Also, if you’re going to try and write a review, you might want to refrain from using unnecessary profanity. It’s highly inappropriate and unprofessional for a “reviwer” to go running their mouth like this and call it criticism. Honestly, as a writer myself, I am quite disgusted by your display. I’m even more displeased that you would attack the fans. If they want to wear cosplay in public or wear the merch, then they have every right to. It is none of your business how these fans display their appreciation for the show; or, any show for that matter. You’re just part of the toxicity that trys to plague the anime community.

    • Shouldn’t you, as a writer yourself, have picked up on what this style of writing is called and realize it’s just as much of a review of the thing it is reviewing as, say, the thing you define as a “true review”? Shouldn’t you also, as a writer yourself, realize that slandering fans of a show is valid criticism of a show? Shouldn’t you also know what a troll is? Shouldn’t you have a dictionary to look up to make sure you understand the difference between an idiom and a proverb and use the right words? Because otherwise you wouldn’t make for much of a writer. And he definitely knows much more about how a perfect he is than you. Isn’t it you that is attacking his person now instead of the article? Oh fuck I just realized you’re trolling. Got me good haha. Let’s just pretend this post is also bait. Or you know. Learn the difference between writing and blogging while we’re at it. Fuck I got baited hard. Not gonn hit that delete button though. I’m too a perfect for that.

    • More like BlackDragonDildo, amirite?

      You write like a fag and you sound like a fag, therefore you must be an upset Boku no Hero fanboy. kys my man

    • BlackDragon is that username picked after your most recent dragon dildo acquisition? lmao

      All your problems would be solved if you joined me in the sacred ritual of performing double suicide for our waifus. I will be engaging in the performance at midnight, JP time, May the ninth 2019. All you have to do is literally kill yourself at this time and you will be able to cross to the other side. It’s best if you do auto-erotic asphyxiation while looking at hentai with the dragon dildo in your ass. This way you can really focus your mind to your waifu’s domain in the afterlife.
      Fuck this world, I’m off to the eternal lap pillow!


  14. I mean let’s get one thing straight you all are faggots for even watching anime in the first place. Damn shame Japan wasn’t mega nuked to oblivion when the US had a chance

  15. I used to enjoy Shounen and Isekai trash anime, suddenly one day my brain snapped and I could no longer enjoy them. Some anime even makes me roll my eyes. Why is this happening???

    The latest Heroaca anime (season 4 episode 13) was so bad. They put some cringy ass sad song during Eri rescue scene and mute the scene after that. Whats the point of watching anime if the audio just make the anime worst.
