MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Favorite Game System Edition – Major Spoilers – Comic Book Reviews, News, Previews, and Podcasts

For whatever reason, I discovered we have two Xbox One systems in the household, along with two Switch systems, one PS4, three Nintendo DS units, and a Wii. I think it has something to do with brothers wanting to play different games at the same time, or the same game at the same time in the case of Fortnite.

  1. Hello Major Spoilers Crew,

    When I saw that you all were discussing My Hero Academia this week, I was very eager to listen and hear what you had to say about it. Last year, I had a week free over summer, so I gave the anime everyone was talking about a shot. I had not been very interested up until that point, but once I had started watching it, I basically plowed through the three seasons in the span of two weeks. Now that the fourth season is so far away, I have started to read the manga as well.

    My Hero Academia has become one of my favorite manga/anime series of late. I would agree that the first season was paced-poorly, but the other seasons pick up quite well. Perhaps, I continue to be in a honeymoon phase, but the characters continue to resonate with me. While not all the characters are fully fleshed out, the ones that the story focuses on become lovable and easy to root for. Maybe it is for a younger audience, and that is why I enjoy it so much, but I do feel that it is a story worth reading.

    Thanks for putting up with my lengthy comment, and thanks for sharing your opinion on it as well. Keep up the wonderful work! And here’s to another year of amazing content and success.
