My Hero Academia Anime Plot-
The plot of My Hero Academia, or Boku no Hero Academia, takes place in a world where superpowers have now become the livelihood of the new generation. In such a world, it’s only normal that heroes, villains, and those in-between exist and function well with their superpowers called Quirks. However, unfortunately for our main character Izuku Midoriya, also known as Deku, is born with a slight genetic mutation that leaves him quirkless.
Even with his dreams of being a superhero now shattered, Izuku manages to pick up his pieces and still hopes for the best. This works out well for him as after a flurry of unforeseen events; he ends up becoming the successor of the number one hero All Might‘s quirk One For All. With this, as he moves forward to enroll in a superhero high school, Horikoshi takes us on a long journey to watch him grow into the number 1 hero.
The plus point of this series is definitely its accurate display of friendships, difficulties, trauma, and growth. Every character is granted a tiny character background arc which helps ensure an emotional connection between the viewer and the series. Further, Studio Bones does an amazing job at animating action and character quirks. All things considered, this is definitely a feel-good anime that leaves a satisfying weight when it finishes. Well, we’ll be back again with another article to keep you informed. So until then, stay safe, stay tuned, and stay hyped.
