Spoilers are out and they fucking suck as per usual. Also Hori said 2019 is going be crazy, which means he's going to fall apart like he always does and drag us through another half dozen training arcs.

Can we expect him to go on hiatus like Togashi. The way the story has been meandering, I think it's obvious he's hit a creative slump. Trying to buy time but that spark just hasn't hit him yet. If he doesn't step it up in 2019, this might go the way of Bleach in the worst case scenario.

I get the feeling he wanted there to be a timeskip after the All Might vs AfO fight, but he didn't follow through. It's a shame, the manga felt like it was really picking up momentum up to that point and a timeskip would have been a great opportunity to take off. Unfortunately I get the feeling he doesn't actually know where he's going with any of this. Also he already has too many characters, he needs to stop adding them and start telling stories with the ones he's got.


 No.892684

>>892656

All the action in this chapter and all of Ochako's flashback could have been handled in one page each. We could have gotten a page or two of something actually fucking happening because this slow boil on OFA going nuts has been half a year in the making and it still hasn't amounted to much, because Deku has barely been in the spotlight for his own fucking series.

Seems like Hori is on the verge of crumpling beneath the pressure of his success and this series is about to go on an untimely hiatus at this rate.

Hori's going to add more characters, introducing the majority of Class C, why they're somehow better than Class B and also better than Class A because they have been secretly training in the background and is somehow secretly better than theory and practical experience with even more gimmicky quriks.

Just you wait until Hori reintroduces the students from other hero schools and introduces dozens of new ones from previously unheard of hero schools. And those students will be better than all of UA, have quirks that coincidentally act as hard counters to UA students, and their abilities will be super niche and so situational that they're virtually impractical. There will be one brief passing line of dialogue to justify all of this, along the lines of; "These schools which typically have mediocre reputations saw how much UA has been humiliated by villains that they decided to improve like never before!"

What next? Introduce more weirdo characters? This could've gone better if the show was actually planned as a typical fighting game franchise.

They also fucked up with these srsly_wut quirks like that 1B? invisible guy who has speech bubbles or mediocre quirks like "creati".

Since Deku didn't meet the real enemy at the beginning (which is the rule on most films because the worst enemy which is not related or MC nevermet and coming at the end of the show makes it a tale of mystery).

All I hope for is Deku dad is alive and IS the worst villain existent (much worse than AF1) while also Deku manifesting his dad's powerful quirk which is an Evil quirk and there's nothing Deku can do to it so he becomes Fallen Deku.


 No.892811

The big cast isn't so much of a problem if it's done organically. For a little while, it seemed like Hori had the right idea when it came to the side characters: Introduce them briefly, have them around when it makes sense, but don't take the spotlight off the main cast when big stuff is happening. This would mean you could, for instance, see Onomatopoeia guy in the background many chapters ago, maybe even using his power, but not having the action stop to explain it or highlight it. Much later in the series, he shows up again, uses his power to do something minor, but then goes back to doing shit in the background until he's relevant again.

The only way to handle large casts is to use them for worldbuilding. Make it so the world feels alive by having these different entities moving around and doing their own shit in the background. Have the audience peripherally aware of them, but NEVER take focus away from the story or downplay the importance of the protagonists to the audience, just so you can show off the dozen new half-assed character ideas you came up with.

That would be great. Except for the fact that this will be the result:

I personally think it would be hilarious and entertaining if villain arcs escalated into massive wipeouts of hero students, it would appease my inner edgelord.

Anyone with some scientific knowledge who can help me with a qwirk concept? basically this, if the character in question is nicknamed "collider" and he/she is basically a human "particle collider", what kind of things can he/she do and not do? what kind of limitation or drawbacks you think said qwirk would have?

>>895034

>human "particle collider"

Legitimate question, do you even know what that means or did you just want to come up with a cool idea for a character and this was what came to mind? I assume they would be a regular human that can spawn particles and shoot them at high speeds towards someone thus giving her a similar effect to a collider but a collider itself doesn't spawn particles it just collides them using magnetic fields I believe. This might seem overpowered until you realize the user has weaknesses that can make them fuck up, all you have to do is run faster than her field of direction to avoid the shot. Depending on the particle they could do a lot, even opening a black hole but that would cause too much damage. It would be too reckless and too hard to successfully fight someone with unless the user has high combat skills without the power, reducing the qwirk to a gun essentially. Gif related is how I view this as but instead of light there's an actual particle being shot so fast it leaves a beam behind for a few seconds. Either way unless the user is so op they're Mary Sue tier op in terms of skill without the qwirk it would just be a kid struggling to even fight. The character would either be very op and edgy or very nervous and pathetic, probably got imprisoned by the government for their own good.Excuse the gif it was the quickest one I could find.

I have a vague understanding on what a particle accelerator would be in fiction, something akin to Ghostbuster's proton packs, originally I was thinking of someone who would be able to control gravity in a different way than Uraraka, mostly to alter gravity fields around inorganic matter in a small area, basically like throwing a stone "charged" with higher gravity as to make it "heavier" and stuff but then I realized that having the limitation being "could create a black hole but that would destroy the planet" kind of thing to be just too OP and predictable.


 No.895107

After careful reading I guess is just too OP and yes, too Mary Sue to just try to handicap, the only other option was going for an "accelerator" but not the OP Index one, more like what I mentioned, something like a proton pack or ironically, a railgun, I was thinking he could just turn a homemade gun with two rails into a weapon to channel the qwirk into a bullet or something, on the other hand it seems quite generic.

That power could be balanced by character needing to use up his or her body particles as fuel to propel the particles, source for the particles. If character uses that power to much, it would eventually start to drain particles from fat, muscle, and connective tissues, possibly devouring the owner. Properly aiming beams could also require a lot of focus. Things like loud noises, limited visibility, cold, stress etc. could cause the ability to misfire or backfire.

It could be taken further, and making smaller beam more difficult to aim accurately, so character has to create larger beams of particles, while making sure to not use too many particles and devour the body itself, all while holding completely still.

With these limitations, character would be better suited as a support or tech maker. Otherwise, it would be somewhat redundant with yet another character who needs to eat constantly to use his quirk, and another character who can shoot beams. Still, Hori has no qualms about having multiple super strength, fire, and 'needs to eat to use a quirk' characters.

> Gentle

Gentle was boring and pointless. Not even saying I would have preferred another big power battle. I just mean Gentle was boring and pointless.

The reason why he was pointless was because he didn't lead to anything. And sure, he could be used to set something up for later but that remains to be seen. His story was also not allowed to be impactful. The stakes was that if detected the festival would have been called off and a loli's smile would have been ruined. Unfortunately, if those are the stakes, then for him to have had any impact, that should have been allowed to happen. But Hori made one major mistake with him. He wanted both the festival and Gentle. Instead of Deku being the incidental deciding factor, it was really Hori in the background realizing he wanted the festival to absolutely happen. Hori needed to give Gentle his own space in the story and not be the non-conflict of the festival.

For example, they could have still set him up, just save the scenes revealing him until afterwards and make the festival the point he decides to go big from then on. Have a hero on festival security duty talking with that watchdog hero in charge of security, maybe that giant type girl. The watchdog hero asks her if there's anything to report. She says no, that there was this couple loitering at the perimeter but that's about it. He raises an eyebrow and asks for more information like who they were but instead she comments on the outfit the guy wore and that he was too old for the other girl. He shrugs and sighs. After the festival, have a flashback to Gentle and that girl, and how that giant girl's rude behavior lit a fire in Gentle but instead of making a scene he decides that retreating is the best course so that he can launch bigger schemes.

The reason why he was boring is a lot simpler. His motivation was set up so quickly that it was weak on its own. He was stuck between gag character and quirky silly anti-villain with a(n) tragic unfortunate backstory. I couldn't take him seriously and I couldn't see him as funny. I was legitimately surprised to see anyone care. I was convinced he was glorified filler to add some stakes to the festival, just another example of a last minute fight you see in actual filler from other shonen. For all of that I see Gentle as more botched delivery than wasted potential.

>>895880

Though you make a generally solid case, I do disagree with you on the 'no stakes' point.

It wasn't that fact the loli wasn't going to smile as much as the entire school was going to be shut down. It was evident already that the system was under threat; and with the media circus already descending on them pre and post Kamino they were under absolute eggshells (hence why the school was dormatised in the first place; if that's even a word). If there was any incident, it was clear that the school wouldn't just be eaten out; but utterly grounded into oblivion. Tomura might not have had anything to do with it directly, but it's clear that a distrust has been instilled in general and that the usual shit isn't going to slide any more (also considering that the parent approval process wasn't exactly smooth sailing; it's shown that even those with the most invested in the hero industry are getting sketchy). Add to that, that Gentle himself was a former student which was clearly expelled on absolutely unfair grounds and you don't just have an attack on the school, but a huge controversy dragged up from the dead and in turn putting the conecpt of heroism in even more dispute (of the idea that many villains are just reject heroes; therefore creating a viscious cycle). Though High End put some faith back in the system; before that the public at large were clearly starting to ask too many questions.

Another thing I think you may have seemed to fail to see the importance of was La Brava; who is now not only in play, but on the loose. The parallels between her and Eri are clear, not to say she's EvilEri; but a short, emotionally vulnerable girl that had lost all hope until a man 11 years older than her inspired her to use the incredibly powerful quirk she has no control over to help somebody much weaker than the enemy almost singlehandedly win the day with a coloured glow against all odds...well you see my point. Following logic, it's safe to say one of the first people she's going to make a B-Line towards is Giran-and he's the direct link to the LoV (not saying she's joining asap; but they haven't had many new recruits recently and there isn't much of a reason to have her just up an leave the equation). Though she isn't much now, I don't see it as coincedance that the secondary villain got more development panels than the major villain. Taking into account that Ms Joke was shown at the Sports Festival and the time frame between Hosu nomu/Stain nomus being hinted at being kids and High End being shown in a nursery; and it is extremely evident that Hori might play a ridiculously long game, but he isn't forgetting plot points he introduced literal years beforehand.

Overall, though the arc might have been a very SoL'ey arc to flesh out/get the class back in the spotlight after Yakushit bar Bakugo, because Bakugo is already perfect and doesn't need character development and he already knows how to play the drums and is more betterer of a guitar teacher than the girl who's lived around music all her life and bakugo is so cool and HE ISNT GAY STOP DRAWING HIM SUCKING DICKS STEVEN IT ISNT FUNNY BAKUGO IS SUPER AWESOME COOL AND HE CAN EXPLODE YOU HEAD OFF AT ANY POINT AND FUCK YOU STEVEN it's quite clear that between

>It wasn't that fact the loli wasn't going to smile as much as the entire school was going to be shut down.

The school wasn't going to be shut down just because of a trespasser. The security team even mentions that another reason why they would cancel the festival and go into lockdown, if needed, is that it would be seen as a sign of competence. If the school didn't get shut down over prior disasters, why would they get shut down over a magic hipster and his fangirl?

>Add to that, that Gentle himself was a former student which was clearly expelled on absolutely unfair grounds and you don't just have an attack on the school, but a huge controversy dragged up from the dead and in turn putting the conecpt of heroism in even more dispute (of the idea that many villains are just reject heroes; therefore creating a viscious cycle).

You're inserting a bit. No one cared who Gentle was, even after he was caught. He isn't a big guy. That is one of his major attributes. If your reason was valid, then that "huge controversy" would still occur after he surrendered. That would actually have made his character more interesting; that UA regained its reputation for being secure, but the media turns Gentle into a cautionary tale of what hero schools do to good people. That didn't happen because it was not a stake, and not a lead into a story setup.

>Another thing I think you may have seemed to fail to see the importance of was La Brava; who is now not only in play, but on the loose.

After the police comment on her being a hacker, there is no mention of her at all. She essentially disappears from the story.

> The parallels between her and Eri are clear, not to say she's EvilEri; but a short, emotionally vulnerable girl that had lost all hope until a man 11 years older than her inspired her to use the incredibly powerful quirk she has no control over to help somebody much weaker than the enemy almost singlehandedly win the day with a coloured glow against all odds...well you see my point.

Those are called superficial similarities. They both grant powerups, but that's about it. Although, La Brava's power up spell is a once per day.

>Following logic, it's safe to say one of the first people she's going to make a B-Line towards is Giran-and he's the direct link to the LoV (not saying she's joining asap; but they haven't had many new recruits recently and there isn't much of a reason to have her just up an leave the equation).

You were inserting before but this is too much. That's also not how, "following logic," works. It's far more likely hori will forget about them both.

>Overall, though the arc might have been a very SoL'ey arc to flesh out/get the class back in the spotlight after Yakushit bar Bakugo, because Bakugo is already perfect and doesn't need character development and he already knows how to play the drums and is more betterer of a guitar teacher than the girl who's lived around music all her life and bakugo is so cool and HE ISNT GAY STOP DRAWING HIM SUCKING DICKS STEVEN IT ISNT FUNNY BAKUGO IS SUPER AWESOME COOL AND HE CAN EXPLODE YOU HEAD OFF AT ANY POINT AND FUCK YOU STEVEN

How come bakugo doesn't get a foil villain fight? "Because he is so perfect that no one can be his foil." - Hori

>that the arc was a very subtle exposition arc which has given Hori a multitude more approaches to carry on the narratives after what was a relatively dead-end story.

All of that remains to be seen. I don't see any setup in Gentle's story because there was no payoff. Hori continues to add more characters that could come back and be used, but it's more likely that he will just add more to fulfill a story beat before being abandoned and call that world building.

I'm not one to bother looking into fanfiction, but I can't help but admit that basically everyone who's voiced suggestions on how something could have gone better or could have lead to something interesting have had decent ideas. This makes me wonder if Hori is really burnt out or is so autistically trying to subvert expectations that he won't allow himself to use logical story progression; i.e. not cliches, but ways you expect to see the story develop.

Endevour and Hawks arc are the peak, some of the best stuff in BNHA.

Everything else has been trash.

No, that fact that you even lasted that long shows you have shit taste.

It is actually so infuriating how much nothing happens with this shit.

All Might loses his powers and we don't get a proper follow up until Endevour and Hawks, and then some more nothing happens.

How hard would it be for the story to move forward at this point? How about a time skip? Maybe shift the focus to handman for a bit? Something that doesn't involve introducing more characters?

ALSO WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT GIANT THING THAT THEY INTRODUCED AWHILE BACK?

Am I delusional or did that happen and not go anywhere?

I remain shocked by how you fags can't tell he's artificially stretching the story under editorial orders because WSJ knows they have nothing else to push sales after this and One Piece are finished

Why would you read this garbage to begin with?

It's pretty obvious that Hori's strategy is to drag out stuff until he can plot out a bigger event arc, and then blow his load all at once. We know AfO is up to something in prison, somehow, but we're not seeing any of that actually developed. So what's going to happen instead is that we're going to see some more boring shit for a few months when all of the sudden "OH WOW SOMETHING'S REALLY BIG AND CRAZY IS HAPPENING!! EVERYONE SCRAMBLE INTO A BIG CLUSTERFUCK ACTION SCENE AND HOLD YOUR POSITIONS UNTIL SOMETHING DRAMATIC HAPPENS!!"

Pure delusion. Boku no Nothing Happens hasnt produced anything interesting is years. You believe there is some super secret plan to do something interesting then clearly we arent looking at the same shit.

>something interesting will happen

How viable are crowdfunded weekly manga these days?

I'm not saying it's going to be good, but there's definitely an attempt to create peaks and valleys of storytelling. So we get several months of this shitty training arc, and then something "big" happens, like another villain attack or the city explodes or something equally contrived. It's played like it's supposed to be a big deal, but there's really no stakes, no one really dies, and the most we get out of it is Deku getting one more spotlight moment and maybe a few panels of explanation about one of those many dangling plot threads. Then we go back to seeing the story drag ass for 6 more months.

Hahah yeah right. There this is so generic and uncreative that you would think Hori is trying to be shit.

I would respect Hori a lot more if he killed off some characters. I personally like Grape Kid, but killing the comedic relief would at least signal to the audience that we're about to hit a tonal shift.

Honestly, the Graper should have ditched UA a long time ago and become a paparazzi that takes creep-shots by using his quirk.
