IS MY HERO ACADEMIA: VIGILANTES, VOL. 3 WORTH YOUR TIME?
WHAT DID WE THINK WITHOUT SPOILING IT?
I loved it.
My Hero Academia: Vigilantes volume three is so good! Volume 3 is full of character development, new characters, interesting situations and more world building.
THIS WAS MAGNIFICENT!
JUST BUY IT!
Third volume in and this feels right at home in the well established world of My Hero Academia. This is the very best spin off experience since Xena. So far, everything that I love about the series is still here and the weirdness of the last volume is thankfully gone. The art is fantastic. The story is perfectly paced and very, very interesting. As a huge fan of he My Hero Academia world, My Hero Academia: Vigilantes feels like, not only an absolute perfect fit, but required reading.
I cannot overstate how happy I am that this series exists. I cannot overstate how shocked I am that it’s anywhere near as good as it is. Who would have figured that one of the most boring characters in the main manga would have a charismatic and fun older brothers? Having a story in the My Hero Academia universe take place outside of the school is a wonderful idea. Seeing how a world full of qurk users behaves, thrives and endures is fascinating. I love the constant world building. I love the constant callbacks to earlier ideas from not only this manga, but the original manga.
My Hero Academia: Vigilantes volume three has our heroes having to navigate not only hero work, but family and everyday life. New love interests are introduced and so is some family. Koichi has a lot on his hands trying to be a student and an unofficial hero. Add to that a visiting mother, possible love interest and an unknown admirer and we have a fun protagonist that is obviously overwhelmed.
The stories in this volume play out perfectly. I found myself fully invested from start to finish and cannot help but recommend this volume to existing readers and the series to curious fans.
