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.

Preliminary (419/? eps)
At first a basic yet exciting shonen, which later builds into something amazing.

Story 8/10
Really beginner friendly and catered towards a younger audience, the story has its lows and highs. At it's best, it rivals some of the best series out there, but a lot of the time it's just mind fodder. The world building is great and the comedy is far more enjoyable than in the anime.

Characters 10/10
The characters are my personal favorite part of the series. A lot of the main cast aren't that amazing, but many of the side-characters are just top notch writing. And even the less excitable characters have their ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (418/? eps)
A work with a perfect beginning and half, but with a troubled final stretch.

I started reading Boku no Hero a long time ago and the story grabbed me to the point of being one of my favorite mangas, to the point that I collected the physical work too. With this I can say that the work is good but it has declined in story quality over time, the way the work wants to treat certain characters as pure even if it is of the worst nature possible is very frustrating as this is very disconnected from the reality that We experience what is difficult for ...

Preliminary (396/? eps)
My Hero Academia was my favorite anime/manga when I was newer to the mediums. It incorporated elements with strong appeal to my tastes. I am a sucker for characters who overcome some inherent disadvantage they have by thinking outside the box, and cutesy low stakes slice of life stuff. Both of these are staples of the early series, and led me to falling in love with the characters. As I've read more though, three major cracks have become too noticeable for me to enjoy this story like I used to.

My first major complaint is that the author is good at introducing likeable characters, but fails ...
