30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 10 – Shounen Anime Done Right

Day 10- Favourite Fighter Anime


I actually struggled with this one as I struggled trying to figure out what it meant by fighter anime. My first instinct was shounen shows but I googled fighter anime and the first thing that popped up was martial arts based anime. I haven’t really seen any fighter anime like that so I will be giving my favourite Shounen series instead (I mean it’s technically still counts since it’s shounen).

My Hero Academia is probably my favourite Shounen show (excluding Gintama as that also comes under comedy and parody). It’s one of the big mainstream shounen shows that I absolutely adore with very good reason. As someone who already loved the superhero genre in the West it makes sense that I would continue to love it if it was made in the East too.


One of the biggest areas I love about this show is the characters. You have the main character Izuku Midoriya and you get to see him as the underdog and watch his character grow and change but it doesn’t solely focus on him. There is a huge cast of characters within the show and I love seeing all of them grow and interact with each other. No one is left out in this show which I think is refreshing and doesn’t happen often in anime. The character designs in this series are also amazing. Sometimes I watch series where a lot of the characters look the same or similar and they just have different hair or eye colours. My Hero Academia however has a wide variety of character designs so much so that if you haven’t see the show you may struggle to pick out the main character just from a single glance.

My Hero Academia also has some great battle scenes. I hate battles being dragged out for too long and I feel that this series doesn’t drag things out but juts gets on with the battle within a sensible period of time before finishing and continuing on with the story. This helps keep me interested in the show and not loose my motivation to watch it. Overall it’s one of my favourite mainstream shounen shows. I cannot wait for season 3!

  1. Ug, I know right?!? Whoever made this challenge had some really weird questions. I also discussed what a “fighter” anime might have meant and how I ultimately settled on what it was in my post too! MHA is a solid choice for this one for sure though.

      1. The armor/weapon one is another major weirdo one. My friend said I should do a fake tech review of the cell phone from “In Another World with my Smart Phone.” That would have been super funny but I haven’t seen it yet so couldn’t do that bit justice or totally would have.

      2. Yeah I struggled with that one too 😑 some of them have me scratching my head because I don’t pay any attention to some of these things 😒 and that sounds hilarious! I’d love to see something like that! Aww it’s a shame you haven’t seen it because that would make for a brilliant post!

      3. Same. Though, it is less that I don’t pay attention to that sort of thing but more that I just don’t care enough to bother ranking that stuff.

        Nothing is stopping me from watching it and then doing it as a gag review later though 😉 At least that would make the show more interesting…
