    Cause I am. I was hoping for a really awesome "front-liner" quirk, not another support quirk.

    I'm right there with you. Her quirk is defensive which is boring.

    Well it is abit more impressive than the phantom limb quirk most people predicted, but thus far she doesn't seem that strong.

    still wish she had an adaptive/regenerative quirk

    I personally wished she had a quirk that let her turn into a giant fuck-off dinosaur, but I guess we're saving that for Spinner. :maybe

    It's not bad, it has tons of potential, and we haven't seen all she can do with it yet, so I say give it a chance before judging.

    No, I find it quite cool. I think it has many really useful applications of which Setsuna probably only has shown a fraction



















    pun totally intended

    I remember when i was super hyped when ryukyu transformed into a fucking dragon. Man did that lead to nowhere. Biggest waste of this series. I'm still pissed tbh.

    Pretty sure Spinner is quirkless. Or at the very least his quirk is really useless for combat. I'm 90+% sure he is quirkless and Mandalay asking why he didn't use his quirk in their fight:



    hints at that.

    Yeah the quirk is disappointing, but I wasn’t as hyped as other people.

    Not really no.

    For one thing, her quirk looks like it's gonna be really handy for espionage or scouting type missions or situations.

    Well, we speculated a lot bases on its name but at the end of the day the only thing Hori did was say

    " Lizard tails keep moving after being cut... Lets go with that"

    Not much thought behind it.

    Cant say i am disappointed, but definitely expected different.

    I saw someone on reddit posting that the kanji forming "Lizard tail cut" also have a meaning like dissecting or dislocating or something like that so I guess this is just a classic case of being lost in translation and ewoking the wrong ideas about it :/

    Side note, I set this poll for people to be able to change their votes in case something happens in later chapters.

    Yeah, it was meh...but it's still early days for this match up so she could do more things.
    At the same time, I was never all that hyped for her. I care more about Awase on that team tbh.

    Actually surpassed my expectations. I expected her to have detachable limbs, which I had no idea what creatively could be done with that. This has far more potential.

    WHAT IF she can reassemble herself into a dinosaur?

    I do feel like there's a big clash between her motif and her power.

    People need to stop having high hopes for females in manga. It is beyond 99% of authors it seems to make a balanced female character.

    While that is generally true for almost all shounen manga you at least have the occasional good written female character. And BnHA has several cool and strong, capable females. They don't get a lot of exposure sadly, but when they do it's always great.

    Years ago, when I said that Black Clover treated its females better, EVERYONE got on my case. Now look at y'all. :trinny

    Side note, if you want strong female characters (that AREN'T Mary Sues), try out The Zombie Knight Saga. :bury
