I'm so sick of seeing the same whiny hero protagonist who uses his mary sue magic to win.

I want a real MANLY, protagonist, like Gon, Kenshiro, Spike, or Joestar.

congrats you didn't get it. the sole purpose in the transformation was to shock/surprise the viewers expectations and in your case, it seems like it'd been successful. you expected some trash tier powerup like a hair color change, some clowny shit like g4 from OP or perhaps an edgy dark transformation like meliodas. that's what people are referring to when they talk about the deconstruction in HxH.

It's usual to expect an MC to stay that way for an entire story, unless some profound narrative reason sidelines them. Karakuri Circus and Sengoku Youko come to mind as examples where the sidelining of the starting MC actually makes sense.

Things that matter in the world aren't the same.

I know you are the same faggot with the same bait every time.
Deku had his dreams crushed, constantly got bullied and was never supported. That shit would ruin a person. Especially a little child. So what happened was completely realistic.
The second somebody supported him he instantly got on his feet and started and intense training regime and has consistently out performed people around him, considering that he either in the top 3 or the strongest of the first years.
Also you didnt actually address my points, you just moved the goalpost.

Sure you still get good MCs with actual personalities every now and then and they are just as numerous as the ones with self-insert nonentities in a way, but teenage boys nowadays would rather read/watch series that features self inserts that are as pathetic as them to relate their first world problems and are more popular.

Not him, but did you even look at the catalog before you posted this? /a/ is undertaken by the shonenchads and I would be lying if I said that I don't miss the competitive atmosphere, back when the old big three dominated this place.
I always got the sense that everyone kept each other in check with having too big an ego; people on the other side were going to tell you the flaws in your series. Everyone wanted to tell you why their favorite should be on top. The equality in popularity humbled everyone.
Now things seem more insulated. MHA is the biggest new shonen by sales and gets all the attention in the west. OP is bigger but the fanbase has gotten older by now. Therefore MHA and OP are both unchecked in terms of criticism.

The only people keeping criticism alive on /a/ at least are hunterchads, so remember to thank them. Hopefully, their influence will become pervasive over the whole internet.

no one can't do anything on his own, this whole muh willpower horseshit is millenial delusion that leads to absurdities like thinking your will alone can shape who you are no matter the circumstances surrounding you

actually one of shonen's main themes has always been the need for support whether from peers or from mentor figures for the hero to flourish, someone like kenshiro for instance was raised and trained by and alongside people, he didn't create himself out of thin air like some sort of retarded discount ubermensch

Deku is A shitty boring cuttout character from dullest franchise in the history of anime. Seriously each episode following the boy Hero and his pals from UA as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series' only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make quirks ordinary, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Horikoshi vetoed the idea of A1 studios producing the series; he made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for his manga. My Hero Academia might be anti-communist(or not), but it's certainly the anti-One Piece series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least the manga was good though
"No!"
The writing is dreadful; the manga was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character fought, the author wrote instead that the character "went 100000000%"

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Horikoshi's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that he has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of My Hero Academia by the same Yoshihiro Togashi. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading My Hero Academia at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Hunter X Hunter." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "My Hero Academia" you are, in fact, trained to read Hunter X Hunter.

Although it changes from adaptation and sometimes even panel to panel, Gon's shorts usuall sit pretty baggy on him (pic related), so there it isn't a stretch that they wouldn't break off when he grew. It looks wierd in the 2011 version because they were damn near booty shorts to begin with.

There's some merit in the accidental protagonist who barely survives early episodes. Clearly, that character will live, and it's a given that they'll make good decisions later to become an invincible hero, so there's no tension there, but the plotline itself does have a message:

"See this idiot? Life should have crushed him into an early grave, but he got lucky a few times and smartened up, started paying attention. Now, after all these adventures, he can take just barely care of himself, but he's still screwed without support.

"You better realize when you get lucky, and start paying attention. Partner up, too, because nobody makes it on their own."

A fine sentiment, in my opinion. Sobering.

Hey at least he had to train his body to handle even 5% of it without breaking. And he has the pressure of being given the one perk that can stop the big bad and he knows it. It's asspull-y but not much more than YYH's ancient demon ancestor shit.

Fine he had a lot of help, he acknowledges this pretty much once an arc. "I'm only here because I'm supported by all my great friends" etc. What shounen doesn't have some power of friendship speech?

gon actually tries to redeem murderers and see things from their point of view, which is fairly unique and interesting when compared with deku's view that "JUSTICE IS MIGHT" and "HEROES MUST ALWAYS BE JUST" sameshit.
gon allows a murderer walk free knowingly because he only cares about himself and the people around him, which is what he is all about.
deku is a direct contrast and a hypocrite that borrows ideals from others only because he thought it was pretty

>>178130077
I mean they made it a montage chapter, but he did get trained by All Might for 10 months in an intense boot camp just so his body could handle it. And I don't know what backpack loli is, but remember that granny nurse can only accelerate healing. He still risks his limbs early on, and he feels the pain clearly. Even if it healed pretty quickly, how often would you go willingly break your fingers and your arms, limbs, your entire body?

>He still risks his limbs early on, and he feels the pain clearly. Even if it healed pretty quickly, how often would you go willingly break your fingers and your arms, limbs, your entire body?
This would have been true if he actually stays wounded for more than 2-3 chapter, but instead he gets healed right away making every "hard-earned" victory a joke. You only can sell this formulaic type of writing for 1-2 maybe 3 arcs, but after that the average reader starts to question your writing and the overall progress of the story.
Why make a big deal out of it when we already know nothing is gonna permanently damage Deku in the long run, meaning with every fight it becomes even more stale and predictable. Hori is too scared of risking something like this, he is playing the safe card thus making the series overall bland and boring.
>>
>>178130909
Not that anon but I have to admit that is true. At least after the todoroki fight loli says no more.
>>
>>178130721
look because of this
>>178130909
His "suffering" isn't credible when it only lasts for a few chapters, and then everything gets repeated again.
I can't trust a writing like this, it's like the author is faking the suffering for shock value, while always having in mind that he can reset said suffering to 0 making it overall unbelievable and extremely cheap character development-wise. Look at a character like Kaneki from TG, his suffering is imaginable because they just don't disappear with every fight. Causing enduring damage to a character, requires a fleshed out idea on how you want your MC progress as a character. Hori doesn't need to bother with these things, because he already constructed a safe way to get his MC out of every miserable situation because of what i previous said. This really hurts the character, and you can feel that in the long run.

That's only brave if you actually manage to relieve the situation. If All Might or the other heroes weren't there Deku would just be another statistic for why normalfags shouldn't attempt to face villains.

He was given all the help he would have ever needed, and without that help he would have never risen, hell he was even about to quit in the beginning.

It really astounds me that there are actually people out there that unironically watch this insipid children's cartoon known as "my hero academia".
Just one glance at it's deadbeat protagonist is enough to show that this anime is vacuous rubbish. To put it short, he is a pathetic self insert who is somehow gifted a super strong ability for reason whatsoever.

Compare this to an actual well made protagonist like Gon. Gon does not just simply lay around weeping about his dreams until he encounters a deus ex machina. He actually goes out there and works to accomplish his dreams. He is quite a nuanced character despite only being 12, there have been times when he was stricken with intense emotion which was portrayed in ways that were never seen before in shonen manga. To add to that, he faced with all sorts of realistic dilemmas such as when it is right to kill someone or realizing that even people that you consider to be horrible are still capable of feeling the same things that you do.

The amount of hard work and deep thinking that went into creating Gon is obviously great. But despite that, there are still people who would prefer the wacky highschool adventures of d*Ku and friends over this masterpiece.
>>
>>178135763
I like hxh and I think you're overselling Gon. He's just okay, the magic of that show is the world building and the cast, especially the villains' interactions with Gon.
