The translation work done by Caleb Cook is worthy of it`s own review. It`s too often times the case that the translation is poorly done and god forbid gets in the way of the story. However, Caleb Cook`s translation is written in a way that is smooth and beautifully supplements the manga. A way that is NOT obtrusive. In addition, it`s clear that Caleb Cook has extensive experience in not only the Japanese language but the culture of Japan as well. As a half-Japanese half-American, I see too many obvious cases of translations being too literal or on the flip side much is lost in translation. This is not the case at all for this series. The subtle nuances of the Japanese language as well as culture is beautifully conveyed. I look forward to Caleb Cook`s future works in this series as well as other mangas.
All the characters are really well done, I really love Deku working hard to make his dreams come true. He’s such a good person, I love him so much. Then All Might is basically Deku’s dad and it’s adorable. All Might is such a good character too. He’s so silly and cool and a lot of stuff you need to read to understand but trust me he’s awesome.
The art for this series is amazing. From the very beginning the art is great. There’s a comedic feel and a very serious feel to this story at the same time and I think that’s great. It’s lighthearted and actiony and serious at the same time and it’s great.
I know I’ve said great too much but THIS! SERIES!! IS REALLY GREAT!!!
I didn’t know what to expect at first but a lot of people recommended it to me. I thought I might somewhat like this... nah I just love it to death.
