Boku No Hero Academia is focused on one child in the world where most have special abilities and he is born without one known as a Quirk. The quirks have been slowly expanding through the population but Izuku Midoriya still holds on to the dream of being a hero.
Izuku decides early on that he is a late developer or that if he tries hard enough and puts in the effort that he can one day become just like his hero the All Might. This anime does have a feeling of the western world comics in it but was a little harder to follow for me than ReLife but that was mainly to do with the speed of the dialogue. The story itself is solid and has some really good feel good moments and twists along the way.
The animation didn’t seem as high quality as ReLife that being said it could have been the quality that was watching in and that was 480p. However, you did notice the difference between ReLife and Buku No Hero Academia at the same quality.
Boku No Hero Academia gets the balance of story and action just right and shows the development of characters really well. One of the first lines of the series is no one is equal and although this is the motto all the way through it does show how you can work hard to get where you want to be against all odds.
Boku No Hero Academia is definitely worth a pick up as it gives the right amount of balance of action and story, to make you invested in the characters but at the same time, the pace of the action is fast enough for you not to get too bogged down in the story. There are plenty of twists and turns and if the studios allow there will be another season of this awesome anime. So believe in yourself pick up this anime and watch how anyone as long as they are in the right place at the right time you can achieve anything.
ReLife is only my third trip into the world of anime and I have to admit I really enjoyed it. The reason for choosing ReLife was it was one of the top Animes on the list I was looking at and had a synopses similar to Plastic Memories which was the last anime that I really sat down and watched.
ReLife is based around Arata Kaizaki who is unemployed 27 years old that is bouncing between jobs where possible and is approached when he is at his lowest to take part in an experiment. The experiment is to take a pill and go that alters his appearance so that he can go back to high school. This sounds quite interesting because it’s like starting over again putting someone that seemingly is struggling in life back into an environment that they have been before and stable one to boot.
There are a lot of twists and turns in ReLife as Arata comes to terms with his personal demons some were completely out of left field and was not expected others you could see coming right off the bat. The Japanese humour can be missed in western culture from my limited understanding and research but there was some real laugh out loud moments when some of the characters were put in some awkward positions.
The animation quality as I’ve come to expect is awesome, even watching in 480p the quality compared to some of the western counterparts was out of this world, but at the same time simple and not to complicated
ReLife is a romance anime but don’t let that put you off if your not into that type of thing, because it explores all aspects of social behaviour and has some really good character development. Along with some really interesting twists even towards the end, just as you think that you have the direction that they are going with it makes another turn. One that I would say is definitely worth catching if you’re low on anime and want a nice easy fix
