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.

A brilliant modern shounen that improves upon most of the faults in classic shounen series – fillers, inconsistent animation, out of control scaling, awkward pacing, and so on, and so forth.

It's a Bones production, so you know that technical quality is guaranteed. Judging by the background art, I can tell that some of the same people who worked on Soul Eater are also working on this one.

As for the anime itself, it's exactly what you think it is. The title is pretty self-explanatory. It's basically superhero Harry Potter. The show has many merits, but if there's one thing it excels at, it's the ability to ...

Mixed Feelings
this is the most average show ever. period. like i have no words due to meh it is. okok ill cut some slack. the first couple of episodes that introduce the concept of quirks and other such things were good. i thought it was well explained and the idea was well executed. after which the villains were pretty cool. okok you know what. the show is great its very nice and has a cool cast of characters. however my one gripe is the fanbase. thats it. although they have no proper way to push what they want onto the show, they still give it a ...

Um dos piores protagonistas da historia dos animes, muito sem graça a historia em si tem e bem atrativa mas o prota acaba estragando toda a historia e a trama!
Os personagens e poderes são bem criativos em si de longe o mundo n e sem graça, infelizmente a historia como de costume e muito centrada somente no Japão, o prota tem uns poderes legais mais a personalidade n deixa ele usufruir de todo o potencial dos poderes dele!~
Se alguém gosta de um prota chato e bebe choram eu recomendo essa obra mas para aqueles que gostem de protas legais n recomendo de maneira nenhuma.
