My Hero Academia is set in a world where approximately 80% of the human population has gained superpowers called "Quirks" (個性, Kōsei). Quirks vary widely and can be inherited. Among Quirk-enhanced individuals, some of them earn the title of Hero, cooperating with authorities in rescue operations and capturing criminals who misuse their Quirks, commonly known as villains. Is. Additionally, heroes who excel in their duties receive celebrity status and are recognized as "Pro Heroes" (プロヒロー, Purō Hīro). Heroes are ranked in popularity, with higher ranking heroes gaining public appeal, though it is not uncommon for novice heroes to gain popularity as well.

Initially those who voluntarily performed their heroic duties without permission were recognized as "vigilantes" (ヴィジルテ, vijirante). Students who have worked as vigilantes are not allowed to work as heroes due to Quirk restriction laws, managed by the Hero Public Safety Commission (ヒーロー公安姓塔員, Hīrō Kōan Iinkai). While the act of vigilantism is inherently illegal, vigilantes themselves represent a gray area.

 The Hero Public Safety Commission originally enlisted vigilantes to do their dirty work until they became so organized that it was no longer possible to properly deal with the vigilantes, so they abandoned the idea and instead turned to Pro Focused on recruiting heroes. Some vigilantes wear costumes, but since they do not have access to accessories like the heroes, they are made from regular clothing and everyday items.

There are two types of internships that offer the opportunity to become a Pro Hero.

This also allows them to gain experience and may help them get noticed by other Pro Heroes who may hire them as full-time assistants after they graduate.

Oh you sweet summer child.

The general community is pretty divided on MHA right now from what I've observed--it's been really divided ever since Deku got his extra quirks and most everyone agrees the pacing after the War Arc (where Dabi reveals who he is) is all over the place. A lot of people aren't into the 'redeem the villains' route that the story is taking too, so there's some grumbling about that.

That being said, I think it's interesting you didn't seem to have that problem reading it all in one go! I suspected that the manga probably feels better pacing wise when you're not reading it weekly.

Off the top of my head one of the most iconic moments in the series is definitely the Dabi reveal. 'Dabi's Dance' was so huge that I think it even out-trended the US presidential election on twitter. Crazy stuff.

Welcome to the community and enjoy the rest of the ride!

It’s and new realize in the errs I see from the finale arc is that I don’t like finale arcs, when the setup holds the entire cast of good/bad guys fighting in a tournament style bracket where none thing is really paid off while we wait for the true finale that has egged itself on for much too long or robbed the supporting cast of their shining or what would be their best moments.

Any arc cutting away from side characters prominent fights and not giving substantial narrative or significance in its place is awful.

Thanks for the welcome! I had no idea the Dabi reveal was so iconic. It makes me sad having missed out on that moment in real time.

The best part of blowing through the manga was being able to skip all the uninteresting stuff, like all the non-Deku/Bukoga parts lol. Oh and I’m glad I was about to basically skip the mini arc where the students formed a band for that festival. I think I would’ve stopped reading if I had to wait months for the end of that.

One Piece has a lot of similar pacing issues. Some arcs seem to drag on and focus too much on unimportant characters, but reading it in its entirety over a few sittings gives better perspective.

Thanks again for your input!

I went into it thinking that it felt like such a tropey Shounen Jump manga/anime, but it's got a lot of humor and it carried its overarching themes much better than others, so I think it helps that I came into it with pretty low expectations, but overall I do think it's pretty solid.

Really hate the pacing, though. This entire story has taken place during their first year, what? I feel like the Vigilante Deku arc would have made sense for a timeskip, I don't understand how Horikoshi could convey such a breakdown in society and the collapse of the Hero system over the span of a few weeks. The Final War Arc's pacing feels especially bad. Somehow feels rushed, yet somehow dragging-on.

Yea I get that feeling sometimes too. Obviously we’re talking about a children’s comic book but how can anyone develop the muscles and soft tissue to support the greatest power in the world? A timeskip would definitely have made sense at that point.

Part of it might be, as fans knowing that Horikoshi has been struggling with his health lately, or basically the stress of it all might be taking its toll, so the real-life interruptions translate to feeling a similar interruption in the flow of the story. Case in point some of these chapters that are like half-chapters at best.

Part of me feels like he should take an extended hiatus like other mangaka have done so he can refreshen and recharge and end strong. As a fan, I could see it doing good not just for Hori but the story as well. But I suppose SJ would never allow that.
