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.

i'd held off on watching this anime for a while since i personally don't like watching mainstream anime (or even those set up as shonen) since they tend to stretch plotlines and occupy screentime as much as possible, but i was pleasantly surprised by this series and what it set out to do. of course, standard disclaimer for all my reviews in that i haven't read the associated manga, but the first season of Boku no Hero Academia shows so much promise, with a set of characters that fit specific tropes (not always the ones we may believe initially) and an overarching plot that sets ...

Mixed Feelings
"​If you ever wondered "what if Rock Lee was a Gary Stu?" this anime is the result of that. The series begins and we are introduced to a protagonist who is noble but is a victim of bullying, lacks friends, and is unable to fulfill his greatest dream, all due to his lack of a "quirk." However, the series waits no time until giving him the best power in the series, along with personal mentorship from the most powerful hero and a group of friends. This is because the most powerful hero took notice of him to be his successor due to a random act ...

Don't know why this series has so much hype. Maybe, if you're 13 year old boy, you will like it. It's kinda dream-fuel for boy who wants to achieve something even when he has no innate abilities and just gets lucky one day, and then through hard work achieves everything. Common, but boring trope. Everything about this TV series felt overhyped and melodramatic.

Music - because of music I give it 4 and not 3. It gives me good boost when I am training.

Story - predictable

Art and Animation - very smooth, made my experience kinda enjoyable.

Characters - cliche. Nothing interesting about them. Didn't liked that Deku ...
