Probably my favorite anime this year. And at the moment my favorite dub. I was really surprised with the casting of Justin Briner and Clifford Chapin but they really made those roles their own.

Also the most pleasant surprise casting was David Matranga as Shoto. He has the perfect voice for that role and it has me more excited for season 2.

Really excited to find out who will be playing Stain, Gran Torino, Endeavor, Mei, etc come season 2.

@itsmedeadpool episode 1 and 2 may not have been the most engaging, but man they had some feels.

Very enjoyable anime right here. Even if My Hero Macadamia isn't without its more cliche tropes, the show also proves to be an example showcasing that familiar themes are not always bad. It's an entertaining watch and a half equipped with recognizable as well as striking character designs, a good score composed by Yuki Hayashi, and it can essentially tell a viewer that - yes, regardless of whether or not you have a Quirk - you can still be a hero. PLUS ULTRA!

FUNimation's English dub track is outstanding, too; almost as listenable as the original, I'd say. Justin Briner really displayed a lot in the way of promise as Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, and had great chemistry with Chris Sabat's All Might. The other VAs whom comprised the cast pretty much performed nicely, with Josh Grelle as Tokoyami, Sonny Strait's Present Mic, and Monica Rial's rendition of Tsuyu having caught my ear in particular. Colleen Clinkenbeard is as good an actress as she is a voice director.

I agree with most of what you said. Music really stood out for me. This anime didn't shatter any new ground that Tiger & Bunny and One Punch Man hadn't already done but it still has its own identity instead of being a lame copycat.

I liked the dub for the most part; my only complains minor as they are would be the continual use of musical chairs for broadcast dubs especially the casting of fellow ADR Directors (guess it's too hard to resist when they're literally walking distance/a booth away). Some of them started out as VAs and that's fine if they're actually good but others aren't giving anything remarkable and an actual VA would be much better.

Also certain VAs I'm no fan of (either they're just not good period or past their prime) but overall the good outweighs that bad.

Was this anime overhyped AF? Yep. Was the dub a masterpiece? Nope. But was it enjoyable and better than the average broadcast dub? Most definitely.

I think with only a month left this year I can probably say this is my dub of the year. The cast in general was fantastic and I have no big complaints for the voiceover. As many have said before and I agree completely, Briner as Izuku was perfect. Can't wait for a second season to see who they cast for Hero Killer Stain!

@FUNiman Also for curiosity's sake was Nomu not dubbed over or was the actor not credited?

This was a pretty great show in general, from its handling of classic superhero tropes to just a ridiculously great protagonist. And the action scenes were hype as hell.

Really loved the dub too, definitely one of Funi's best broadcast dubs so far. The casting choices can be a bit too safe or obvious (especially with so many complaining to silly levels about Sabat playing All Might) but everything just worked so well.

Plus, Justin Briner completely owned the role of Izuku to a T. He's really rising up as one of my favourite voices from Funimation now after this and his roles in Grimgar and Garo.
