Synopsis

The appearance of "quirks," newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.

Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku's unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might's quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!

Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year's freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.

This review contains spoilers.

My hero academia is an underdog story shounen. The bullied MC has to grow balls, adapt, etc to become what he wants to become. It's all fine and dandy except every other shounen and their dog already did this, better. The show ends up being just fanservice to people whom can identify with the main character.

What my hero academia caught attention with are its different perspective on the subject and the good production values. MHA takes the zero to hero plot half jockingly and half seriously, and this is reflected in its different western superhero-like art style and “in your face” read more

My 1st review in MAL :) Hope it will be useful for y'all ^^
Boku no Hero Academia is a great upcoming shounen anime. Its rare now to see the main character starting from zero to a hero. And this is all what the anime is about. Young boy, Izuku Midoriya having a great interest to become a 'Hero' goes through various hardships and training to join U.A.~ The Hero Academia. This hero of ours lacking the uniqueness called as 'Quirks' has a dream to walk over the footsteps of the 'No. 1 Hero' All Might.

Story~ 9/10
From Zero to a Hero. This anime is about Midoriya read more

''My Deku means, You can do it!''- Midoriya, Izuku (Deku)


Boku no hero Academia is one of the most popular ongoing animes of the spring season 2016. The series is a typical zero to hero story (which isn't bad in anyway) about a boy that has a huge interest in becoming a superhero.

Story ~ 9/10
The story of the series is set in an alternate world where humans are born with superpowers, with some humans the powers starts to manifest from the age 4. Because of that superhumans has become a normal daily life thing. With this fact humanity has been divided by 3 groups.

Note: Tl;dr at the end for the lazy ones.
*MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*


Inspired by American superhero comics, Horikoshi Kouhei's Boku no Hero Academia (or 'My Hero Academia' in English) manga started publishing two years ago, but got gained a lot of popularity only after the release of One Punch Man anime. But being honest here, I must say that I was somewhat disappointed by it.


Story: 6/10
The story is rather childish. In the world of My Hero Academia, on one fine day, out of nowhere, new born babies started having some random super powers which are called 'quirks'. With that, evil villains emerged, and with that heroes emerged read more
