It still being stream in Japan, well, last episode airs this Sunday. It's too early to expect a DVD release (despite there is a simuldub of it) FUNimation has the exclusive streaming rights to it with HULu streaming it as well. Luckily, FUNimation has it stream in the UK where you are at.
2nd Season promo that was shown in the last minutes of the season 1 finale
This show has been awesome. When shows had a lot of expectations and is one of the most anticipated shows, most fall. Bungo stray Dogs, ERASED and a lot more fizzled more.
This show did a bench mark for the 2nd season. Ep 12 was the climax. This was a bit sober in the action. It still had that intensity and self sacrifice. It introduced a bunch of new characters, the faculty and pro heroes as well one unknown villain.
Episode 13: This one turned out to be a very nice episode after everything the school went through. The setup for this ended up getting me excited for Season 2 as well. Good thing the SOTM Absolute Takeover happened when it did after the results from last time.
Weird question my friend. I remember you compared One Punch Man to the Tick. What would be the American comic equivalent of My Hero Academia if you name one?
Hmm, well 1st theirs not much shonen grit in comics these days. So thats a big cut on what could be close. but a school for future heroes yeah thats been done. From Xmen school stuff to Young Justice cartoon. But where as The One Punch Man would fit into The Tick universe . Shonen style like My Hero Academia not so much.
Tho I could argue www.amazon.com/Invincible-Ultimate-Collection-Vol-1/dp/158240500X Which is wrote by "Robert Kirkman is a New York Times bestselling author known for being the cultural zeitgeist of the comic book industry. He maintains one prerogative in every undertaking: quality. It is Kirkman's belief that good people who produce good writing and good ideas make comics people love. Kirkman was recently made partner at Image Comics, and continues to revive the industry with refreshing new characters. AMC is adapting his bestselling series, The Walking Dead, into a TV series (set to debut in October 2010), and his books are among the most popular on the iPhone and iPad's "Comics" app."
Here the synapsis from Image "Mark Grayson is teenage superhero Invincible. He was a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job and otherwise normal life, except his father Nolan is the superhero Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At the age of 17, Mark begins to display superpowers, which come from his father being a member of the Viltrumite race, who, according to Nolan, pioneer the galaxy on a mission of benevolence and enlightenment. As Invincible, Mark begins working as a superhero, with his father acting as his mentor, and meeting other heroes. Mark worked occasionally with a superhero team called the Teen Team (consisting of Robot, Rex Plode, Dupli-Kate and Atom Eve), from there discovering that his Physics teacher has been turning his students into human bombs. He stops his teacher with the help of the heroine, Atom Eve. He also foils a plan to make an army of robots, created by the Mauler Twins. Meanwhile Omni-Man is kidnapped by aliens, taken to another dimension, but returns after what seems to be only a few days, but was actually eight months to him."
Very bloody but closest to story an grit comics would get I think.
"Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." — Robert E. Howard, The Tower of the Elephant (1933)
The whole underdog and working hard to be a hero - can't think of any American comic book for that.
I agree with the school setting for heroes being done before. X-Men is the opposite of My Hero Academia. X-Men, people with powers are looked down. In My Hero Academia, everyone has power well, most 80% I believe, so there is no stigma. Kind of a strange but cool comparison.
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
