    Re: My Hero Academia II - Bhyyyyyyyyy

    I wonder who the 'he' referenced here is? If Deku, Bakugou and Todoroki are The Three Musketeers then the perspective would be from outside of those three. Hmm...
  2. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Yeah, but Tomioka Atsuhiro is a better writer than Toriyama so the anime is often much better, especially when their hands aren't so tied by weird restrictions on what kind of shit they can and...
  3. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I feel like I would have liked this chapter if the arc hadn't been so fucking terrible since the end of the Namek portion. I really wish Moro had had more depth to his character. :(

    Hahi was an episode director on #118, too, so this is his first full episode directing debut. He and his animators really put a lot into the episode.

    I hope Mama Todoroki escapes to the battle scene to join the fight. It's so tiring seeing her as a pawn in the story.

    Re: My Hero Academia II - Bhyyyyyyyyy

    That's why it comes across so heavily that Horikoshi views the State and heroes as being in-the-right, while trying to muddy the waters by just claiming the 'villains' to be sore losers. It's...

    The structure of the fight is being dragged out, for sure. I feel like the chapter could have easily cut material. We don't NEED to see how Toga and Ochako meet, just cut to them having met and use...

    That's why we must be critical, so that Horikoshi, JUMP editorial and more are held to a standard. This "oh, well!" attitude is antithetical to even the most barebones position one can and should...

    Media studies and media theory have existed for as long as there has been media. Twitter is simply a platform for people to discuss media theory on, no different than the fanzines or pubs of yore.

    The problem is that Horikawa doesn't really seem to buy into authoritarianism (the heroes) as being wrong. There's not enough of a strong depiction of the 'villains' as being the protagonists: Toga,...
