What is My Hero Academia about?


May 2021 – My Hero Academia is a Japanese show about a boy named Izuku Midoriya. He was born without a Quirk, or a superpower, but it has always been his dream to become a Pro Hero, the people that save Japan from villains.

He is bullied by his childhood friend, Katsuki Bakugou, and his two friends. When a Sludge Villain attacks him in an alleyway, the number one hero, All Might, comes to his aid. Izuku is astonished at finally meeting his idol and asks him if he can become a hero without a Quirk. However, All Might denies it, and tells him if he wants to help people, he could become a police officer. 

Meanwhile, the Sludge Villain has escaped All Might’s clutches, and has captured Katsuki. Izuku finds out, and runs toward the Sludge Villain, trying to save Katsuki. Later, as he is walking home, All Might appears, and tells him he can be a hero, and that he will be given All Might’s Quirk, One For All. 

Izuku undergoes 10 months of training, and gets into U.A., the best hero school in Japan. He makes new friends and learns to control his Quirk better, but then the villains show up. Izuku, his friends, and the heroes manage to defeat them, and, throughout the show, Izuku learns more and more about his strange new quirk and its previous users.

My opinion on this show is great. First, the plot is original and interesting, so I won’t get bored watching it. Second, the characters are unique and have different interesting personalities, and the designs are amazing. The animation is great as well. The only downside is that the show isn’t great for younger audiences. But overall, it’s probably the best show I’ve ever watched (aside from My Little Pony, of course).
