    I wasn't expecting much from this My Hero Academia spin-off, but ended up really enjoying this first volume. It's set in the same world, but the story is focused on a group of unlicensed heroes with crappy quirks who still want to do good. It's fun! Actually, more fun than the recent HeroAca volumes. I really enjoyed the team dynamic here, it's basically a story of a young Spider-Man like kid who became a sidekick to a Batman-type older guy. The ...

    This was OK. There wasn't much story to it. A few people with quirks (superpowers) but who aren't licensed band together to help people. There's not really much story here. Each issue is kind of the same. They walk down the street until someone confronts them and then get in a fight. Like a lot of manga, the art didn't have much detail outside of the characters. In this circumstance, I had a really hard time following the action with figures just...

    This is fun... but I still don’t get the hype for My Hero Academia...What’s it about?This book follows a young man (Koichi) who has a weird superpower but he uses it to help people. Well, he ends up fucking with some more vicious folks and meets some people that help him be an unlicensed hero... a vigilante.Pros:The story is fairly interesting. I can’t say too much without spoilers but it ends up being a pretty interesting tale.The art is w...

    My Hero Academia is a super fun anime so I was pretty excited to try the spin off. However, I'm always weary. I tried spin-off for Attack on Titan and that...was less than stellar. However, I said screw it, and picked it up. Is it good? Yeah...it is pretty fun! So this is focused on the heroes that don't become certified. We have a guy who's like a roach who has the power of...crawling. Yes. I'm serious. With that he teams up with a old man who l...

    I wasn't sure if I was going to like the spin off as much because it's written by a different person, but it's still a lot of fun! It's a bit chaotic, but it's kind of cool that it slightly ties in with the regular BNHA timeline a little with the drugs and all. It's also nice seeing more from the pro heroes. I'm definitely interested to see where this goes.

    (Read right to left. Mouse-over images to view sources)My Hero Academia: Vigilantes is a fanfiction spin-off manga of the fantastic My Hero Academia series, and I'd say it was a pretty bold move to try something like this since it has such an amazing behemoth to live up to. So? How does Vigilantes compare to its predecessor? Well, if you noticed my rating you might have guessed that I didn't think it did a great job.Vigilantes was a mixed bag for...

    For more reviews and bookish content: http://literarylion.ca/I picked this up purely out of curiosity. I love the original series and wondered if the spin-off would be any good. It definitely is.I love that this series is going to be focusing on older characters because I'm pretty burnt out on everything taking place in a high school. I also really enjoyed the slightly grittier batman-esquevibe I was getting from a certain vigilante. It's neat to...

    I enjoyed this volume, but I feel like I didn't connect with as many of the characters as I did at the beginning of the original series. But I really do like Knuckleduster, and I hope to see The Crawler and Pop Step develop more in the next installments. I also thought all of the random fandom references and cameos were amusing.

    Enjoyable for MHA Fans!I like that Vigilantes doesn’t take itself too seriously. Also, the end pages and behind the scenes info are my fav!

    Really enjoyed this. Its nice to see what goes on outside of MHA.

    I love theMy Hero Academiaseries and this one is meant to be if Midoriya never met All Might. We have Koichi Haimawari (very close to the word himawari "sunflower"), a young man who wanted to be a pro hero, but his quirk simply wasn't strong enough. So instead he calls himself "Nice Guy" and goes around using his quirk to benefit society. Then he is introduced to Knucklebuster, a self-made hero looking for villains with a special mark on them. It...

    Vigilante: Boku no Hero Academia IllegalsThis Series is a Spin off/Prequel of the original series Boku no hero academia (a.k.a. My hero academia). If you have read My hero academia or watched the tv show, you know when it takes place,if not, it takes place on earth at the time of which the human race has evolved so much nearly 80% of the population has these special abilities called a quirk (practically a super power).This story focuses around th...

    I enjoyed it. Having a new writer and a new set of characters makes the story fresher. And Knuckleduster is more like Batman compared to All Might’s Supermanishness (this is actually noted by the author), so it’s fun seeing a Batmannish character. So far the story is a little so so, and feels a little less developed than the main one, but it’s enjoyable enough. Three and a half rounded up.

    I like the idea behind this spin-off which shows the untold stories of those behind the heroes which need to act as one without a license, thus breaking the law. The plot is also taking a somehow darker shade than the main series, representing concretized issues. I'm eager to progress .

    My Hero Academia: Vigilantes, Vol. 1 is the beginning of a new series written by Hideyuki Furuhashi and illustrated by Betten Court based in the world conceived and created by Kohei Horikoshi. This tankobon collects the first five chapters of this on-going series.In a world, where superpowers (called quarks) run rampant, not everyone with powers is suitable for being a superhero. Even so, there are those who yearn to be a superhero despite not be...

    I liked it. I really did. It remains faithful to the world that Horikoshi has built in My Hero Academia, but deals with street level "heroes" dealing with street level issues. I'm also a big fan of how this story examines how far someone would go to do what they believe to be right instead of how the core MHA manga tells a story of what it takes to be a hero.However, I do feel like it's missing that certain something that makes MHA so special. Th...

    I gave this series a try because I've been watching bnha and I really enjoy it. This series seems like the start to a series that I'll really like as well! The author says that the protag of this and his mentor are intentionally supposed to serve as foils for Midoriya and All Might, and I'm really excited to see how that plays out. Especially since the mentor character is QUIRKLESS! A lot of what drew me to bnha in the first place was that I want...

    Note this review contains very minor spoilers from things outside of just the first volume!Lovely prequel/side story of MHA that I sadly doubt will ever get an anime adaptation. The characters are rather interesting and everything fits well within MHA cannon rather well despite not being written by Kohei Hirokoshi. At first I assumed it was taking place during season 2 since we see Ingenium is still alive, though it is in fact as I previously sta...

    So I'm sufficiently unaware of the details of this that I didn't even realize it was a spin-off. I assumed the subtitle--"Vigilantes"--was a volume title. Apparently not. Anyway, obligatory admission of ignorance complete, this was pretty cool. It's an interesting concept for a superhero world: If everybody is superpowered--or, at least powered--in some fashion, how does one maintain order? The solution? Those who want to be heroes audition/apply...

    This is a spin off set in the world of My Hero Academia, with a main character who doesn't have the abilities to be a hero, but still wants to try. In the character discussion, the main hero is brainstormed to be sort of Midoriya if he never got One for All. It's an interesting perspective, with a cast even quirkier then the main show. I really enjoy the main trio's interactions, especially as they grow to know each other better. In many ways, th...

    I'm not sure how I feel about this one. When I read the first chapter a while back, I really liked it and thought I'd be hooked. Now, reading the whole volume, I feel like this series lacks the OOMPH that MHA has. I do like Koichi and I LOVE that he's 19 years old. Like wow. But I'm not really feeling Master or Pop. Master is actually pretty smart but there's just something about his "knock people out then ask questions" attitude that I find unin...

    Not sure what to make of this spin off. All in all, My Hero Academia is way better. Better characters, better plot, better pacing, better humor.I'm a little interested in Mr. Knuckles (or whatever his name is) for his back story, but I don't really care at all about the other two characters in the trio, Koichi and Pop Star.Ultimately, the coolest parts were seeing the various heroes show up to do their things. Eraser Head fights Mr. Knuckles, a w...

    I read this in one sitting. It was a pretty decent book to be honest. I enjoyed the fact that there are a lot of crossovers with the characters from the original my hero academia series. Along with that I love the different types of characters. I can connect with some of them due to this book mainly having characters that have a more chaotic moral alignment. If you like my hero academia then I don't see why you wouldn't like this. However, I can ...

    Awesome Spin-off to MHA series!I saw this Manga appear when I was searching for My Hero Academia merchandise and figured I would give it a shot. This is actually is one of the first manga's I have read as I usually just watch anime's but I just loved watching MHA so much that I wanted to experience the mangas as well. I am SO GLAD I did too because while MHA Vigilantes is written by another author and the art is drawn again by another artist it a...

    The story is pretty decent for a spin off. I wasn't expecting much but I actually enjoyed it. The plot while not being extremely deep or anything (yet?) The characters mostly just fight with little interaction or development out side of combat. Admittedly I was getting a little bored at the repetitive fight scenes though I hope this will improve as the series goes on. But I still found myself enjoying it for what it is. The characters are also pr...

    I don't think I like this series as much as the main one - yet, but I do think it has potential. And it certainly isn't afraid to have fun either, which is a bonus!This was a great introduction to our heroes...er...vigilantes. I like that none of them have much in common, other than their goals (and even then, some of them are doing this for different reasons). It'll make for a more interesting series, in the long run.Also, I absolutely love that...

    A side story set during the same time as MHA. A hero with a particularly lame power goes around emulating All Might by doing basic good deeds as "Nice Guy." However he runs into the vigilante Knuckleduster, who draws him into helping curtail a drug epidemic causing instant villains; amplified quirks at the cost of self-control. Along with Pop Star, a guerilla idol whose power is to hop long distances, they deal with the grey area of vigilantism i...

    A good start!!!It was a good start to a side manga for a really popular series, and the fact that we got to see a lot of fan favorites like Aizawa and Mic here and there. I didn't go into this knowing what this would be like, so it's good to expect some low grade Spiderman and a mix of deadpool because that's kind of what these guys are! They're doing what the hero's should be doing, and are kind of doing but they're doing...? They do what a hero...

    Not bad.Kind of typical street level hero stuff. The stories are a little "wacky" than I like when a story wants to be taken seriously. I'm not sure how or if this story fits in with the main "My Hero Academia" timeline. But it has the same flaw that just bugs me no end, people with powers can't be licensed heroes. I don't know if it is a cultural thing or just a story thing, but some of the so called heroes have worse powers than two of the main...
