    Default Which one?: The One Punch Man universe or the My Hero Academia universe

    Whether you want to be a superhero or not, not having a choice in the matter you have to choose which universe you make your home from this point on.

    In my case I choose the One Punch Man universe, it just suits me better, along with the serious fact that if you want to be a superhero there no ones going to give you beef about killing the bad guys like they might in the My Hero Academia universe.

    Another thing, personally one of the things I don't like about the My Hero Academia universe is with the case with the Sports Festivals or other times, the story straight up ignores the lethal aspect of a number of the characters powers and how easy it is for them to kill someone by mistake: A perfect example of this is with the powers of Shouto Todoroki, with the first festival of the series I couldn't help but think about how crazy is was his dad brought up his "other side": his power of fire, like he could just use it and win: I could see how he could use his ice powers in the fights, so long as he's careful enough with them, but unless he knows what he is doing he could seriously hurt or kill someone with his fire ability-- he really can't control it in certain ways when you think about it.

    One Punch Man is way more dangerous to my mind.

    HeroAca has villains but they want to steal shit and stuff, there's an ideology behind it.

    The monsters in OPM just want to murder all humans.

    Honestly unless your name happens to be Saitama, the OPM world just feels way, way more dangerous to live in. If your fellow heroes aren't stabbing you in the back, you're fighting for your life against some OP giant monster or some kung-fu loony bin who's sided with the monsters.

    God help you if you happen to do something that offends Tatsumaki.


    The Hero Aca Heroes seem more professional in comparison and the threats aren't quite as insane as in OPM. AFO and Shiggy notwithstanding.

    Plus I could finally get some clarification for that no fighting rule regarding students.
    That's always confused me. Muda.

    To be fair, in OPM, the violence is largely contained to one specific city, and largely one specific part of that one city. So you can just... not live there.

    going with MHA.

    OPM is just too nuts and the hero association's top dogs are either too unreliable or too untrustworthy for my tastes.

    say what you will about endeavor as a family man but i can trust him to watch my back and/or save civies when it counts.

    Not true.

    We see several cities on the super-continent of the OPM world get attacked, and several of them have been destroyed. Just two of the were destroyed by the guy who turned into a super strong giant in the first episode. And Boros' ship wiped out city A that one time. And while Saitama destroyed that meteor what remained of it smashed up another city.

    And besides all the terrifying monsters and other disasters, there's a half decent chance that you yourself will turn into a monster for some arbitrary reason and thus get hunted and killed by the heroes.

    Yeah, I'd absolutely rather live in the MHA world, even if I was a hero. They just generally treat heroes better there and have better systems in place for them.

    I think the meteor and Boros mostly happened in the same like super city? Anyway, point taken.

    The scale of destruction in OPM is much much higher,and they don't shy away from massive civilian casualties. (Although they don't kill heroes for some reason.)

    As a civilian or low tier hero, oh yeah MHA all day every day. Way too many genocidal indiscriminate ultra powerful villains in OPM. Sure Saitama will stop them eventually, but not before a city (or city sized part of the mega city) gets absolutely annihilated.

    While there are some seriously scary MHA villains, they seem focused on money/societal revolution than just murdering people at random.

    If I was an up and coming young hero I'd still probably choose MHA. Seems like a better infrastructure and less cut throat, there's competition to be sure but no one's out right threatening guys like they do in OPM. Also if things get too nuts in the future can always leave Japan.
