Hey all, Dani here.
Okay, so I’ve been a little lax with my Manga Monday reviews, and for that I’m sorry. Once again I have a nice buildup of reviews to write, so I can safely say that this series of posts should be able to continue for a few more months, at least. Though probably longer since I do plan to continue reading manga in future.
Anyway, I will be reading Vol 15 of My Hero Academia very soon, so I am pretty close to catching up on reviews for these reads, which means I’ll have to get back around to some of my other manga series.
Oh, and at the beginning of this month, my fiance and I went to the movies and saw the new My Hero Academia movie, and it was just so darn good. This is an anime series I am probably going to end up buying on DVD, because I will definitely want to watch it again at some point. The movie takes place right before this current season starts, so I do recommend watching it then, or else watching the episodes and movies according to their release dates.
With that out of the way, let’s just go ahead and jump into the review.
Bakugo’s abduction by the League of Villains was a carefully calculated move designed to draw out the heroes—All Might in particular—and destroy them. Midoriya and his friends set out on a rescue mission that eventually pulls in not only All Might but also several other heroes! The casualties mount, until at last the mastermind of the plot appears—All for One, the only villain powerful enough to take on All Might head-to-head and possibly win!
Rating: 5 stars
This was such a great and intense volume. After I first read this one I considered this particular story arc to be my favorite of the series thus far, with good reason. There was so much going on, not just action, but also seeing how all the students continue to keep handling these extreme situations with powerful forces that seem against them.
Plus that All Might vs All for One situation. We have been waiting for it for quite some time, and the tension has been building for it so now it is time to see what sort of fallout will come from this encounter.
This is going to be an interesting storyline to follow, and I am so glad that I am caught up with both the show and the manga series–well, at least the manga that has been released over here in the United States. Obviously I will never wholly be caught up with what has been released weekly in Japan. I mean, unless I learned how to read Japanese, and I’m afraid I don’t currently have enough free time to take on learning a new language.
I know I say this in pretty much each of my reviews for My Hero Academia, but if you like superhero based stories, especially if you also like stories with a school setting, then I definitely recommend checking this series out.
Where to Buy
You can pick up Volume 11 of My Hero Academia, or any of the rest of the series, from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-million, Book Depository, or your local independent book store.
