Imagine living in a world where having superpowers is the norm. Every person on Earth has an almost unique power and ability that can rival those of Superman’s or Wolverine’s that’s what it’s like in the action-packed world of Kouhei Horikoshi’s Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academy).
In this universe, mankind has developed these powers known as “quirks”. They can vary from the usual super strength, invisibility, and telepathy to more complex ones such as permeation, the ability to turn one’s lipids into various atoms, and explosive bodily fluids. These abilities led to the birth of heroes and villains. One particular boy, however, was born without a quirk. Izuku Midoriya, a young boy who dreams of nothing more than being a hero himself, was devastated upon learning that he does not possess a quirk of any kind. Until one day, the number one hero All Might sees his potential and trains him.
Boku no Hero Academia is one of the best mangas released today, and also one of the best animes being aired. It has gained so much popularity that fans across the world have said that it can compare to Naruto and One Piece. That’s quite a feat for any shounen manga! Its influence has reached so many across the globe.
