What makes My Hero Academia different from the rest?
Although there are tons of manga series that show mostly stories of heroes and their lives. Boku no Hero Academia touches a different angle showing an inverse of a real-life story that’s way too unrealistic. You could compare it to Harry Potter’s world perhaps.
In this world, were 80 percent of humans have abilities or superpowers known as “Quirks” Unlike in the real world people who possess superpowers hides from the public on the contrary in My Hero Academia world people it is normal to have superpowers.
They even encourage young people after a specific age to go to the Hero School to become a professional hero to save people at the same time being compensated.
Deku (Izuku Midoriya – the main character) is a huge fan of All Might – the World’s Greatest Hero and has dreams of one day becoming a Hero like his idol. Despite being born without any powers it didn’t stop him from trying to be a hero.
Bullied by his classmates at school because of not having a quirk. After trying to save his childhood friend Katsuki Bakugo from a villain despite being quirkless.
All Might saw a potential on Deku and decided to bestow upon him his own Quirk “One For All” and the story continuous.
The story follows Deku’s entrance into U.A. High School (School for Heroes), a school that cultivates the next generation of superheroes.
As Izuku and his new friends try to balance their Hero training with ordinary school duties.
They must face new challenges including the League of Villains, an evil organization established by All Might’s archenemy, All For One, to destroy all Heroes and take control of society. Deku is now on his journey to become a powerful hero and symbol of peace.

Other Characters Cosplay
Browsing on the Facebook Page of My Hero Academia I came up an idea of asking the public about what they think of this Anime. Why they think that it is the Best Anime and Who is/are their favorite characters.
Posting this questions on the page was totally illogical because we all know that people liked the page because they like the Anime. However, I’d love to know the public’s thought of My Hero Academia.
Here are some of the supporters answer:
Boku no Hero Academia is my Top 2 Favorite Anime of all time. I love the story flow and the wide imagination of Horikoshi-senpai regarding the different quirks of different characters.
Even though its somewhat simple and cliché in some people, I find some things about BNHA that is very unique.
My favorite characters are Midoriya and Uraraka (not because I ship them) it’s because I can really see the improvement and the character development between them.
I love how they are being determined in achieving their dreams and they will do their best just achieve it slowly but surely.
As of this moment though, it is my favorite show of the year though because it made me feel how important and heavy AFO VS OFA was. It took something wonderful and emotional in the manga and made it go plus ultra (pun intended).
I’ve watched dun and subbed to compare the roller coaster each can provide, to only be floored each time. The show restored my interest and faith in anime as a medium after years of the only cherry picking a show or two.
While not perfect for whatever reason to some, the show is in my top list of why anime is amazing.
For my favorite character, I’m split between Lida and Todoroki for the men. I like Lida bc he is smart, kinda handsome, responsible, is made of husband material.
Then the emo icy hot boy, bc of character development, his looks and how convenient he is to hug summer or winter.
From the females is Uraraka, because she’s the best! the second would be Hatsume Mei because she’s a mad scientist).
My fave is Aizawa. I have many characters that I love there but he’s on top. From the beginning, I’ve liked him because of his style and the way he talks his mind without doubt or regret.
He doesn’t fear being judged nor people who will not agree with him. He analyses every situation to be able to talk, and when he does he surely is correct.
He’s mature but comprehensive with his students, he’s strong and kind. I see him as a model for myself and I’d like to become such of an adult like him. Also, he makes me laugh a lot!
A big thanks to everyone for supporting My Hero Academia and for sharing all your beautiful cosplays and artworks! Thank you to all the cosplayers and to their respective photographers.
Continue to inspire and motivate young ones who are looking up to you! Good luck and more powers!
