Manga Review: My Hero Academia Vol 19

Hey all, Dani here.

Sorry this post is so late. Yes, it was originally scheduled to come up on October 21st, (but in reality is being posted now, which is October 29th). I didn’t want to push back what I had planned, so I figured this would be my best option.

Anyway, this is my 19th review for the main series of My Hero Academia, and I’m starting to wonder if I should make lists of links for some of my longer series of reviews. Any opinions on the matter? Would you guys like to be able to find my reviews of the older volumes easier? Let me know in the comments.

Okay, let’s finally jump into this review.

My Hero Academia Vol19

Book Details

Story and Art by: Kohei Horikoshi

Summary

Midoriya inherits the superpower of the world’s greatest hero, but greatness won’t come easy.

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

In the wake of tragedy, Class 1-A prepares for the upcoming culture festival. While the students are busy planning for success, other forces are at work with their own agendas, and Midoriya, amid the preparations, continues to train with All Might. But when he runs into the failed hero Gentle Criminal, what lesson will he learn?

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 stars

Honestly, this was a nice light break from the intensity of the fight that left All Might in retirement. Plus this culture festival does give us a little more of a look into the other classes at UA, which is definitely appreciated.

I like that we get these little moments to learn more about so many of the other characters. It is always fun that we can shift the focus to characters aside from Midoriya.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Midoriya/Deku, but this series has started to feel like more of an ensemble cast, at least to me anyway. So I like that we get to spend a few individual issues following some of the rest of the characters in 1-A, or the other classes as this series continues to expand and grow and develop.

Oh, and because of the plans for the culture festival, we get to learn more about some of the other hobbies and interests of some of the students, which I also enjoy.
