Don't be dense.
The comedy comes from the fact that he's pathetic and cringy and gets punished by everyone for being that way.

I forgot how fast paced the story was. It's been so long since I last read the manga and I stopped at like 100.

Yeah, most of the manga arcs are about 10 to 15 chapters.

The Sports Festival is the longest arc in the series, at 23 chapters, and it doesn't look like it's gonna be dethroned anytime soon.

That would be a valid interpretation if you are being willfully blind to him getting smacked before he could finish?

I really love it. By the point MHA is at, a lot of Shonen have fights as long as MHA's arcs. Breakneck pacing.

Crunchyroll posted a great feature about MHA called

FEATURE: Found in Translation - The Death of Superman in "My Hero Academia"

I recommend reading it. It's really good.

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. Obviously I think the character is shit and you guys are fans of the show and will defend everything about it. That's cool too.

Still hyped for the festival to get going.

So because we think Mineta is a good character...we defend everything about the show? Wut...You just interpreted a scene extremely and in a close-minded way. Of course you were going to be corrected.

Most people here agree the character is shit. That's why it's so entertaining to watch him get the stuffing knocked out of him every time he mouths off or tries something pervy.

Really not a fan of Sports Festival arc in the manga. It's so pointless and like most series, these fighting tournament thing is just lazy IMO...well except maybe when Dragon Ball did it.

I can't agree, because the Sports Festival isn't actually about the tournament itself.

No anime talk in the manga thread is silly. If people want to talk spoilers they should go talk about it there.

Just don't post detailed spoilers. People are going to talk vaguely about future stuff either way, and I know from the Jojo threads that it's impossible to stop that.

A separate spoiler thread is way overkill.

Not to mention it'd almost certainly be unpopulated, since most spoiler talk is in response to not-spoiler talk.

Watched the first season not too long ago and liked it. I saw this thread by chance and was excited as I had recently wondered when this would be coming out.

If this is like the first season then I think I'll like it.

I have not read the manga at all btw.

I had to think deeply before making a post last night about spoilers which wouldn't have been intended. Reading manga is cool and all but I want more and now I hate this feeling of waiting

Hm, I read the manga and I'm still hyped, just didn't think the first episode was super good. I'm sure they'll keep a faithful adaptation. All the talk about pacing is a little silly though, no way to know for sure.

first episode of a new season tends to recap a bit anyway.

I think it's a bit early to say how things will go. The first episode does a lot of recapping and setting up for upcoming events, but that's pretty standard when it comes to introduction episodes. We'll see how it is once we're actually in the middle of things.

Go ahead and be hyped, you can be hyped even if other people aren't.

This isn't based just on this episode, the pacing in the first season sucked ass too and also spammed flashbacks.

It's fine ignore them. I'll be your hype partner!

And seriously even if the pacing stayed slow, the anime would still be the best.

Because even if you people like to complain about it, the slow pacing doesn't really hurt the shows quality. Flashbacks I can understand the sentiment a little.

Years of One Piece have taught me a very important lesson: no recap can ever be as bad as One Piece.

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight is pretty close. Every episode has a long ass recap, including the clip shows, which clip content that was in the recap, and then the following episode recaps the clip show.

The flashbacks are the big thing, though.

Like, for example, when Deku tells Bakugou that he's never going to give up, they insert a flashback to the bit where Ochako talks about it despite the fact that it happened in the same episode, and the manga didn't do anything but show Ochako's face. That weakened the scene. Or the scene where Deku, Tsuyu, and Mineta on the boat, which took about a single chapter to happen, not an entire episode.

I don't get why you guys are angry we're complaining about legitimate flaws like that. Even if you enjoyed it, does that mean we're can't think it a bad adaptation?

I excused them for Season 1 because they had an awkward episode count and production issues, but they have no reason to do the same thing for Season 2. I'll happily eat crow if Episode 2 is better, but if it isn't... why would they do that? There's no reason other than Toei-style greed. That's what pisses me off.
