      Talentless Nana


      From MAL:

      It is the year 20XX. Earth was assaulted by monsters that would come to be known as "the Enemy of Humanity." In order to deal with this threat, special schools comprised of teenagers with extraordinary abilities were formed. These people, who came to be known as "the Talented," had abilities that could defy the rules of reality. Among these people with supernatural powers was an outlier, an individual who was sent to one of these schools despite having no innate special abilities whatsoever. This is the story of our protagonist, who attempts to defeat the Enemies of Humanity through the use of intelligence and manipulation alone.

      I really like this manga! It's a like a really weird twist on My Hero Academia. Ha ha!!!

      In comparison with MHA, this one is a real underdog story, not a fake one like MHA.

      To be fair, MHA is a superpower shounen aimed at a younger audience. It could never hold a candle to Something like Talentless Nana in that regard. Hopefully this will get an anime adaptation within the next 2 years though

      Re: Talentless Nana

      I'm at chapter 30 now

      I think a 1-cour anime could work, but it might feel episodic. The manga is kinda episodic up until a point. I don't know, I think the storytelling is its weakest point. It's good though.

      Well, I also see some unrealistic elements (based on the world's assumptions of course) from time to time, but I also think it's good. I like the situation and the main character. I want her to win, ha ha.
