"My Hero Academia": first expressions!!!

Updated on August 30, 2016

My Hero Academia is a new anime that has become very popular in a short period of time along with some other animes. It is a Japanese Superhero manga series, which is written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It has been published in Weekly Shōnen Jump since July 2014. The series has been published in English since February 9, 2015, after Viz Media licensed them.

The story follows Izuku Midoriya (also called Deku later in the story), a boy who is born without Superpower (aka Quirk) in a world where they are the norm. Even though, he still dreams of becoming a Superhero himself after watching repeatedly a video of the greatest Superhero of all time(All Might) saving thousands of innocent people. He is scouted by the same person at the age of 15, who then shares his powers with Izuku after recognizing his value. All Might enrolls him in a high school for heroes in training, that is called 'UA High School'. It is known as the best choice for those people who want to become heroes in the future. Izuku has also a rival, Bakugou, who has an amazing Quirk. Bakugou used to be once his friend in the childhood, then he started bulling Izuku, because he was quirkless (without superpower). This motivates Izuku even more, to prove the others they were wrong.

As soon as I saw the first episode of the series, I fell in love with it and started reading every episode in manga. It took me less than a week for that and I loved the story that Kōhei Horikoshi has created. The first three episodes of anime were setting up the story and were mostly for characterization, so don’t expect much action at the beginning. Still, even 3 episodes can make magic happen.

Izuku Midoriya: Origin

In the first episode we are presented with Izuku Midoriya, the main character, and the problems he is facing at such a young age. We learn that 80% of the people from all around the world have superpowers and now everyone dreams of becoming a hero. The same goes for Midoriya, who, unfortunately, has no quirk. He is a big fanboy of all the heroes and takes notes of them whenever he sees one in action to save the people. Because he is quirkless, he is bullied anytime by Bakugo and isn't able to stand up for himself. Midoriya's dreams crashed at age of 4, when he learned he didn't have any quirk. Now, he wants to prove the others he is worth something, especially his mother, who lost her hopes on her son. In the end of episode, Midoriya gets trapped by a villain. A minute later the top hero comes in, rescues the kid and capture the villain. As a fanboy, Midoriya has tons of questions and won't let All Might go that easily. After a brief flight, they land and Midoriya starts to tell him his story, but he gets shocked when All Might turns into a super skinny dude, who bleeds when he speaks.

All in all, I think you should give it a try. You have nothing to lose here.

Will you give it a try?
