My Hero Academia Story
My Hero Academia, created by Kohei Horikoshi, is set in a world where the majority of people possess a superhuman power known as a “Quirk.”
Izuyu Midoriya, also known as Deku, is a boy who’s always dreamed of becoming a superhero. Unfortunately for him, he is among the small percentage of people not blessed with a Quirk.
Deku has a streak of luck when he meets his childhood idol, the hero All Might, and discovers his Quirk is not all it seems.
All Might miraculously gives his Quirk to Deku – and for the first time, Deku can be the hero he’s always dreamed of being.
The franchise has been a critical and commercial success. The manga began serializing in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in July 2014 and has over 35 volumes. My Hero Academia has seen great success in America – being listed on the New York Times best-seller list multiple times.
The manga has sold over 65 million copies and has three spin-offs, including My Hero Academia: Smash!! and My Hero Academia: Team-Up Missions.
The anime series is produced by studio BONES. They are known for multiple acclaimed series, including both adaptations of Full Metal Alchemist, Soul Eater, and Noragami.
The first season aired on April 2016 to critical acclaim, and a new season has aired every year following (excluding 2020).
