William Flores

That's because the Sup Forums and Reddit community are extremely vocal, so they thought BnHA was just as popular in Japan. But actually it's just as popular as SnS was.

That's not bad, but it's not going to be next Naruto.

Who said that? If you know about ratings and shit then you should also know that it doesn't matter how many people tune in because BnH is currently one of the new "big three". OP has garbage ratings and sales so did Naruto and yet those shows have been going on for more than a decade. Anime is a glorified commercial for the published work nothing more wanna bet that it's gonna get a season two announcement anyway? Now fuck off back to your moe garbage spirited to another world harem battle LN's.

I'm actually happier that it wasn't adapted like Naruto or One Piece cuz then the retards weaboo's and other casual fucking morons can be put off because "BnH isn't like Naruto". I've said it since the beginning BnH is gonna be closer to Gintama than Naruto and honestly that's the best place to be.

It might get a season 2 since many shows are planned with split seasons even though they only announce one at a time, but there's no way it's doing good enough to continue getting adapted on its own merits. All because whoever is planning the adaptation is a complete retarded who forgot that he needed to rook viewers, rather than just appealing to manga readers.

Two reasons: 1) these are long running series. 2) the pacing of current sereis is different from the series made in the past decade. Hero Academia is a dynamic manga, when you make a slow adaptation, this dynamic disappears and, consequently, no one cares about the story.

I think the whole superhero stuff appeals more to Western audiences... The manga was hyped to no end by Redditers, Youtube reviewers... I checked it out and I ended up dropping it. I'm watching now the anime and, while I enjoy it, I don't really get what's supposed to be so great about it. Even manga readers say that it's not innovative.

Wyatt King

You make it sound like it's a bad thing, if anything this is great.

Not popular enough for WSJ to treat it like mascot and milk it to death.

John Gutierrez

No. Not even with anime.
user is going full damage control, Magi is still selling more, and NnT is selling more than twice.

Chase Jones
Chase Jones

The pacing is just too slow. If the show was something that was going to be long running you could almost bare it but the problem is that its not. its only going to be like 12 or 13 episodes. the first five episodes were pretty much a training montage for the MC to get into the hero school. the last couple have been him just going to class and characters subtly being introduced. the problem is that by the time shit really gets started and interesting in the series its going to be the last episode.

So its pretty much as obvious for "buy the source material if you liked it" as it gets.

I'm really baffled if you really think that's what it all takes to make a good adaptation of a manga. I'm well aware that this isn't the best example but there's a really good reason why the 1999 adaptation of Hunter x Hunter was more successful than the 2011 version or why the 2003 version of Fullmetal Alchemist is loved more than Brotherhood.

Dylan Ortiz

Is there anything wrong with the pace other than the number of episodes? I agree that the more recent episodes are somewhat slow but I thought the first arc was basically perfect.

William Clark

Their sports manga usually do well once they get an anime adaption, Kuroko and Haikyuu both had successful anime. Gintama is also the odd one out where people enjoy their anime more than the manga.

But yeah it's not even shocking that a WSJ manga have mediocre adaption, hell they only do it just bring in new audience for the manga anyway.

1999 series
The first Hunter × Hunter anime series has enjoyed much more modest popularity than its manga source. Newtype listed it as having a Japanese television rating of 10.5 for the fourth quarter of 2000.[125] The show's viewership was ranked number six among the top ten anime television series in Japan for February 2001.[126] The series was voted as the 16th best anime of 2000 in the Animage Anime Grand Prix, but rose to fourth place the following year.[127][128] In 2001, the staff of the magazine listed Hunter × Hunter as the 94th most important anime of all time.[129] In a 2006 web poll conducted in Japan by the network TV Asahi, the Hunter × Hunter television series was voted 28th best anime of all time.

Go ahead and show me how the TV anime of the remake did better in Japan.

Nicholas Lee

Huh? The first thing I thought when I started watching BnHA was that it looked a lot like Naruto, low quality overall but high now and again. The only difference is that it has a much smaller episode count.
I'm surprised people haven't already made the comparison.

Daniel Davis
Daniel Davis

the 1999 adaptation of Hunter x Hunter was more successful than the 2011 version
The 1999 adaptation had 64 episodes and two sets of 13 episode OVAs
The 2011 adaptation had 148 episodes plus two theatrical films.
Also

Joshua Green
Joshua Green

The manga is really fast pace for shonen battle manga, so when the anime decided to take the slow pace it threw many people off especially since one of the popular reason why they like BnHA is because it fast pace unlike Naruto or Bleach.

The slower pace also make the melodramatic moments dwell more which may be a good thing or bad thing depending on your taste. You rarely heard people bitch about Deku crying since it only lasted for a few panels but in the anime along with the VA and sad music it made people way more aware of the sadder moments in the series since they dwell on it for so long.
