My Hero Academia is the only anime where an angry pomeranian, a little soft broccoli boy, and a half-and-half bastard all go to the same school.
Okay, I might need to say more—just a little bit more.
Introduce: My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia is an anime about a boy named Izuku Midoriya who has green hair and was born into a world full of “Quirks.” People started having quirks, which are unique skills, for no clear reason. In an effort to normalize this now super-human society, law enforcement has given the name “hero” to the dream job that every little kid has ever wanted to have. Obviously, there are heroes because some people wanted to use their powers to do bad things. Having people on the side of law enforcement who have really cool superpowers helps a lot in the long run.
Izuku, on the other hand, wasn’t born with a Quirk. His missing father can breathe fire, and his mother can move small things with her mind. He was picked on a lot because he was one of the 20% of people who didn’t have a quirk, but he wanted to be a hero so much that he kept trying by writing down people’s quirks.
After he goes to U.A., the school where his favorite hero went, he is attacked by a sludge villain who wants to hide in his body. When he thinks he can’t get out of the situation, the number one hero and his favorite hero, All Might, saves him.
He traps the villain in soda bottles and Izuku fan boys so much that when All Might is about to leave, he holds onto his leg to try to talk to him more. But when All Might notices and takes him to a nearby rooftop, he starts to steam. As Izuku apologizes and tells him that he wants to be a hero but knows it will be hard without a quirk, the steam blows away, leaving behind a skinny, hollow-eyed All Might. All Might tells Izuku his secret, which is that after a fight 5 years ago, he can’t stay in his hero form for long and can only do it for about 3 hours a day.
All Might tells Izuku not to be a hero and leaves. As Izuku walks home, he sees Katsuki, his childhood friend who he calls “Kacchan,” being held hostage by the same sludge villain he had to deal with earlier. Even All Might doesn’t try to go save him because his time is up. But when Izuku goes to save Katsuki, All Might changes into his hero form and saves both of the boys.
All Might finds Izuku walking home again and tells him another big secret and that he was more of a hero than anyone else at the scene. He decides to give him his quirk and make him his successor.
In the next episodes, we’ll find out why he can give his quick to Izuku and how Izuku becomes the next #1 Hero.

You are going to love My Hero Academia.
Why I love My Hero Academia
I really love My Hero Academia. I can’t get enough of it, and I even have a Pinterest Board about it. There are also a lot of ships in the anime, so if you like to see people get together, you’ll get some nice eye candy.
I love that this anime has a lot of different kinds of characters. Everyone in the class is important and has a role in the story. Some roles are bigger than others, but everyone is treated as important.
The only thing I don’t really like about it is how the female characters are animated. Manga artist Kohei Horikoshi made the women a little bit bigger so that they looked more like real women. But the animation team decided to make the girls skinnier. You can tell by looking at a cheerleading scene from the book and a scene from the animation.
But the animation is very pretty, and the action scenes are great, like the title picture of Izuku and Todoroki, which is my favorite. The movement is very smooth and keeps you very interested.
My Hero Academia is good all around. Because of some scenes, you might need to be a little older to watch it, but it has a lot of good parts. If you want to have a good laugh, you should also watch it with the dub. I love watching funny videos that are taken out of context.
