    As somebody who is similarly outside the target age for Hero Academia, I was pretty ambivalent about it at this point too. The next volume is where I stopped worrying that it would misstep and started to enjoy it as a guilty pleasure, and the volume after that has the first storyline that’s actually really intelligent and impressive. That’s when it becomes clear the creator isn’t just working in the style of western comics, he’s tricked the manga and anime industry into creating an entire franchise and designed dozens of original characters just so he can write for X-Men.
