    The lack of a horribly toxic fandom rivalry.

    Don't get me wrong, My Hero Academia has plenty of competition. One Piece. One Punch Man. Hunter X Hunter. Even Naruto I'd argue. But they're all competing in the way all manga or Shonen compete with each other. There's no direct fandom rivalry where MHA is seen as the complete equal and opposite to another like Marvel and DC are.

    I love superheroes, but I've discovered I'm able to enjoy MHA a lot more these days because I'm not constantly seeing Marvel or DC-like trolls crawling out of the woodwork to shit on MHA for not being Marvel or DC. One Piece and Naruto fans, while there certainly are some bad one, don't make it their life's mission like the Marvel and DC fanboys do to constantly mock and harass MHA fans online. And the MHA fans generally don't do that to them either. I love the Marvel movies but my enjoyment of them has suffered because I'm constantly seeing trolls online bashing on everything that's not the MCU and I don't like them getting any more smug when another good MCU movie comes out, adding fuel to their fire ("When you're an asshole, no one cares how right you are. No one wants to give you the satisfaction.").

    It's so much easier to enjoy something when you don't have to deal with hordes of people who hate when others like something they hate or hordes of people who taint the thing you like by using it to mock others.

    Thats because MHA is still "new". Give it 5 years then maybe we'll see some real toxic buildup :wow

    Meanwhile, enjoy while you can, people are indeed still civil here and I like it :catflower

    Actually, I think MHA has already started to be filled with Toxic fans.
    It has grown so popular since last year.

    It's somewhat peaceful on this site.....for now

    Yep, you're right.
    I haven't met a fandom as toxic as Naruto's....at least in the anime/manga field.

    MHA has toxic fans on tumblr that whine about the female characters not getting exposure, Mineta being a character, and even wished terrible things upon Horikoshi for trying to redeem Endeavor.

    Stay away from tumblr.

    Yeah, I agree that it was stupid that the author was getting death threats just because he was trying to make Endeavor more than just a one-dimensional character (especially because, despite people calling the author an "abuse excuser", Endeavor's family did NOT forgive him for his past actions, instead merely acknowledging that he's trying to change his ways).

    But I'm more just talking about that MHA thankfully lacks a toxic fandom rivalry, not that it's lacking in toxic fans. It doesn't have a direct rival fandom that's constantly crawling out of the woodwork to harass and mock the fans of MHA or vice versa, like Marvel and DC have with each other.

    I mean the sad fact of the matter is no matter what something is or what message it's trying to spread, you're always gonna have some people who like it who, for whatever reason, can't act right and reign in their actions to a reasonable degree for whatever reason, either because they're too passionate about it or are too ignorant to know better or lack self awareness and are to caught up in the moment.

    Granted, I do enjoy my fair share of salt, Naruto and Bleach related posts around their ending were an absolute treat, but I feel like they're a difference between that and outright malice like Marvel v DC fandoms have.

    To be fair, Marvel/DC beef has gone on for far longer than any Japanese intellectual property. I think the only thing that comes remotely close was Nintendo/Sega. I saw actual fights break out over Mario vs. Sonic; the Tism was real in the 90s.

    That said, it could be that Marvel/DC are simply farther along the scale because of the longevity of the properties involved.

    I think that's a fair reading, most comparably long series are relatively non-mainstream like Conan, Baki, and Ippo so while they do have a dedicated fanbase, in the west at least, there has never been too much of a beef since those fanbases have never been that big or clashing and would rather be as welcoming and positive as possible to others like them who like that obscure stuff.

    Heck, even the Big 3 at their height was never really that mainstream so while their was salt and toxicity was relatively fine.

    Also right now Marvel movies>>>>DC movies but DC comics>marvel comics.

    Marvel comics are straight trash right. It's amazing how stark the difference in quality is between the movies and the comics.

    Tumblr almost ruined voltron the legendary defenders for me. Burn that place to the ground :giogio

    As a single straightforward narrative MHA is obviously incomparable as a culture juggernaut to Marvel and DC, any rivalries it has will be similarly small and insignificant.

    The next biggest superhero series in Japan, One Punch Man does have something of a fandom rivalry with MHA tbf

    People used to compare Star Wars to Star Trek (It gets real ugly or it used to).

    Most Star Wars fans and Star Trek fans are too depressed these days to insult one another. Or should I say too apathetic.

    I've visited Tumblr's Mineta tag to look for triggered posts about him. :mjlol

    But there were no posts there. Of any kind at all. Did someone nuke the tag?
    :thunk

    J.J. Abrams ruined them both.:gglife

    It's good for fanarts, though. :gokuyeaboi

    Well, I actually agree with tumblr for once (Strange feeling running through me) ... On the Mineta deal. I mean, the "Horny teenager who does anything for a pussy(And in this ANYTHING there literally is sexual harassment included and maybe even rape)" is kinda like a throwback to the nineties ... And really, Mineta had a good moment, when he was up against Midnight, at that point I was like " Damn, he's going to evolve from this point forward " but NOPE, right after that the fucker wanted to peek at girl's bath I mean, come the fuck on, how is he supposed to be a hero if he literally lives off sexual harassment ?

    Not saying that Horikoshi should or should not drop him, or anything but at least advance his character because it is one thing to have a character who takes anything into the sexual conotation, for example that time Nejire asked something about "Mineta's balls" and he was like " YOU WANT TO SEE MY BALLS SENPAI ? THAT'S SEXUAL HARASSMENT" that was legit funny I gotta give it to you.

    And Mineta is by far not the only character who does shit like this. Mineta is the expression of a larger problem.

    You know what I find hilarious. Iida said that Mineta disgraced the girls and Mineta, himself. Iida actually cares about Mineta's personal honor.

    I mean your not gonna expect characters to exactly change who they are in one arc they still be who they are in the end
    Plus it's been a while since mineta pulled that shit so it's not like we've been bombarded with it every hour

    It's a running gag, my dude.

    You're not supposed to take it seriously and the author isn't trying to convince you that it's cool to do it irl.
