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.

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 read more

What seems to be the next big thing in Boku no Hero Academia certainly has the potential to do so, but has a long way to go before it gets there. So far, its every piece of copy and paste material and generic story out there. However one thing that intrigued me was how well it used its generic story and characters. The first chapter speaks to itself honestly. Izuku our main character has a problem that gets dealt with in a very very satisfying way that got hooked and invested in the story. The story is interesting and the world is simple, but can read more

So far from the looks of things this manga has alot of potential to be on par with the big 3, in fact it could be better, it might even be the next Hunter x Hunter.

The overall plot for the manga is rather interesting, besides following a few cliches (because shounen) the setting is generally based in a world at which humans have been somewhat evolved to a state in which at the age of 4 they develop powers in which then can became SuperHeros, which is pretty unique in my opinion having a society run by heroes. Yet also in this world their a read more

Before i started this many people were hyping this up to be the next naruto so i decided to see what all the hype was about.Right off the bat i could see this was somewhat different from the usual shounen manga as the main character was not the usual dumb knucklehead type.The main character is very smart and uses his intelligence alot in battle which is rare for shounen he doesn't just go into battle swinging he always has a plan.The mangaka of this series also takes the time to flesh out all his characters and explain their powers and it isnt just the usual read more
