My Hero Academia (Japanese: 僕のヒーローアカデミア Hepburn: Boku no Hīrō Akademia) is a superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi.
The animation is great, though the first few scenes may say otherwise. You will notice some shortcuts sprinkle throughout the series where the arts are ambiguous blobs. The action scenes, however, conveying fluid movements.
The opening theme is “The Day”, performed by Porno Graffitti and the ending theme is “Heroes”, performed by Brian the Sun.
My Hero Academia doesn’t just focus on a few characters, but rather a myriad of supporting characters with their own believable backstories. You can tell a lot of thought are put into each character design.
We first get introduced to Izuku Midoriya, a young boy who always dreamed of becoming a hero, despite not having a Quirk (special power) himself. The show makes you instantly care for Izuku, an underdog.
The series started out light but slowly switch to a darker tone near the end of the season.
There is a reason why this show is constantly on most people top 10 anime. You would do yourself a disservice if you haven’t watched this yet.
I highly recommend it for all viewer, including those new to anime. My Hero Academia contains graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
