Oh snap, a new series from Horikoshi!? Sweet! Hopefully, this one lasts longer than either Oumagadoki or Bulge (I'm still sad about the latter's cancellation....).


Anyways, I'm guessing this is a superhero series similar to Onepunch-Man? Hope a translation for this comes out soon....

With the current lineup for jump, I think it will get a hard time going on the upper level/tier of the magazine. Though who knows, hoping that it will turn the tides up specially that I find this more interesting than the other 2 new titles which are condor and yoakemono.

Chapter 1 just got translated into English.

So far, it looks good and the characters are interesting. I can't help but feel bad for Izuki, but hey, he's going to get somewhat strong if poisui's spoilers are right.

a main character that trains to become strong is cliche but a cliche idea done in an entirely new method and scenario is what is keeping the anime manga world alive so this old idea given a new form really is refreshing but still i sincerely hope they don't axe this

^There's no way the kid could have had the money to go that route. But it might have been interesting if he had gone the Boy Wonder route.

Izuku doesn't have an "individuality," so he doesn't really have a power, per say. What he uses is like brute strength more than anything else (Think of All Might's attacks). Izuku's sheer strength is really strong, but his body is really weak. When he uses his sheer strength, his body takes a great deal of damage. Also, his strength can only activates during certain conditions; ie: someone needs to be saved.

Hey, there's finally a translation for this series! Of course, said translations could be better, but..... eh, whatcha gonna do.



Anyway, I'm a little surprised nobody made the OPM comparisons yet, lol (I mean, the heroes even have rankings, right?). Anyway, it is interesting to see the MC already gain strength so soon after the first chapter. I'm also curious as to whether or not that kid with the explosion powers will still remain something of a rival to Izuku (maybe even becoming a supervillain), or they'll eventually team up together to fight crime....?



BTW, something interesting I noticed is that the giant villain shown in the first chapter's color spread (as seen in the first post) looks nearly identical to the villain from the first chapter of Bulge:





^Like seriously, just slap some dreadlocks on him, and they'd practically be the same character, lol. That being said, I do look forward to more of Horikoshi's character designs. I already like the tree ninja and firefighter hero's designs, in particular.

Since he's going to a Hero school, I'm sure there'll be some professor/teacher that's obsessed with building 'equipment' for Heroes, and he can end up being his lab assistant to help 'test' them out.

Well, I guess the OPM method could be fine too.

Looks like this will turn into something like One Punch Man but with a younger audience in mind.

Chapter 2 got scanlated.

The way he gets is his powers is kind of cool. I'm glad it's not a sudden powerup or some kind of hidden power sleeping dormant kind of thing.

I would like the Main Antagonist to be a Normal human who was bulied like the MC therefore he hold a grudge on every single Human with Power and hatch a Plan to destroyed them all.
It would be fun to see the Most powerful villain to be a Normal Human with great intellect.
Like A Batman that gone evil !

So I just found out that this series is actually doing quite well for itself! That's great to know since that now means it has a much better chance of lasting longer than Oumagadoki and Bulge! Congrats, Horikoshi!



And on that note, I quite enjoyed the second chapter. Sure, it's still easy to compare with OPM (what with the MC actually training to get his power and all), but at least there's still Horikoshi's unique twist on things (like having to eat a hair instead of going bald, lol ). Definitely looking forward to the next translated chapters.

The author seems to like American heroes.

...can I have a Batman?

I kind of imagine the author going through hellish training montages himself in-between series or something, with Rocky music.

It's certainly quite fun so far. Hopefully it doesn't lose steam to the cutthroat schedule/competitive pressure.

The second chapter was finally translated... Haa....

Plus, this manga has been doing well on the rankings. It's managed to stay in the top 10 for quite a while now.

Godspeed to the group doing this. You're gonna need it to catch up to the raws.
