Synopsis

One day, a four-year-old boy came to a sudden realization: the world is not fair. Eighty percent of the world's population wield special abilities, known as "quirks," which have given many the power to make their childhood dreams of becoming a superhero a reality. Unfortunately, Izuku Midoriya was one of the few born without a quirk, suffering from discrimination because of it. Yet, he refuses to give up on his dream of becoming a hero; determined to do the impossible, Izuku sets his sights on the elite hero training academy, UA High.

However, everything changes after a chance meeting with the number one hero and Izuku's idol, All Might. Discovering that his dream is not a dead end, the powerless boy undergoes special training, working harder than ever before. Eventually, this leads to him inheriting All Might's power, and with his newfound abilities, gets into his school of choice, beginning his grueling journey to become the successor of the best hero on the planet.

***THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS***

It's not everyday you make an account on a site you lurk just to post a review, but here I am.

Over-the-top entertainment, really easy to get into, great artwork, fun and likable characters. It’s no surprise this manga series is as popular as it is. Reading the author’s note on the first volume, it’s clear the author, Kohei Horikoshi, just wanted to create something fun and enjoyable, and he succeeded in doing so, at least in my opinion.

So why the 4? Well, you see, this review focuses on the writing in this manga series, and I'm going to be as ...

It's the rising star of Jump, the so called "next Naruto/One Piece." Yes, it's of the mold of the two. Yes, you can see the similarities in holistic structure, but what is it that makes Boku no Hero Academia a compelling read for shounen fans looking for something to pass the time?

Story- 7
The premise is simple: Many people have superpowers, the boy has none, he gains powers through strange means much later than others, and he enters THE school of superpower training. Right.
It is only a 7 because the premise has been set and there are simply developments going on at the moment-- this manga ...

Preliminary (28/? chp)
This review is for those who saw All Might on the cover and thought this manga might resemble a decent read, but this is cut from the same cloth as Naruto or Hunter x Hunter. The main character, Deku, is the absolute star and if you don't care about a high schooler's boring, emotional, cliché-ridden rise to prominence, there is little else at offer in this story.

To get right into it, the manga opens on the premise of a world where superpowers have become commonplace. One superhero, All Might, stands above all and is idolized by many. Unfortunately, All Might's time is running short ...
