Synopsis

Living in a superhuman society, it's hard to feel special. Even more so when the spotlight only shines on professional heroes, those legally authorized to use their special powers known as "Quirks" in public for the greater good.

Kouichi Haimawari grew up aspiring to be a hero, but with a mediocre Quirk like "sliding" that ties him to the ground, he soon came to the conclusion that he could only ever admire them from below. Despite this, Kouichi finds contentment in using his Quirk to carry out day-to-day good deeds, such as returning lost items and helping the elderly cross the street.

However, Kouichi's tame life takes a swing into the turbulent when he is rescued from a back alley brawl by "Vigilante," or illegal hero, Knuckleduster. Seeing hero potential in Kouichi, Knuckleduster enlists his help in tracking down the source of a dangerous drug known as "Trigger" that boosts the user's Quirk at the expense of their rationality.

Set in a time before the events of the original story, Vigilante: Boku no Hero Academia Illegals follows Kouichi as he chooses to don the reputation of a villain and become a Vigilante, operating in the shadow of the law to prevent crimes from taking to the surface.

My Hero Academia Vigilantes started off as a spin-off to the main series, but within its 126 chapter run I believe managed to stand alone from its source as well as surpassing it to become a fairly enjoyable superhero manga. This is due to a few number of aspects I will be going over below, starting with

I. The side-characters.

I believe that due to a much smaller cast, MHA:V manages to have a much tighter focus on the character development and ambitions as a whole. There’s ...

I don't like my hero academia.

That's probably what many people who have been recommended this manga to have said; And don't worry, I don't like it either, but please don't let that stigma become an excuse not to read one of the BEST shonen of recent years.

"This is not the story of the best, it is the story of a group of people who just want to do good and find their place in society"

Vigilante: Boku no Hero Academia Illegals is EVERYTHING I ask of a good shonen and superhero story; In this review I will not only defend the reason for this fact, but ...
