My Hero Academia is a manga that is generating a lot of buzz, with people claiming that it will be the next Naruto or Dragon Ball. As big fans of popular culture and superheroes, we had to find out why! Suffice it to say that we love it very much, but before we tell you why, let us give you a little background!
In this manga, we enter a world where 80% of the population has an alternative power, and where heroes are part of everyday life. The invincible one opposes them.

All Might, the most powerful hero in the world, is an idol for Izuku Midoriya. He has only one goal in life: to join the Hero Academia so he can follow in his hero’s footsteps. The problem is that he is part of the 20% who don’t have powers… However, when his path crosses that of the Almighty himself, his destiny takes an unexpected turn! The latter offers Izuku an unexpected opportunity to realize his ambition. For Izuku, the journey has just begun!
MY HERO ACADEMIA OPENING 1
Is it the BNHA you are looking forward to? Is it Naruto, or do you want to start reading about the anime world? My Hero Academia is a great choice! Action, dynamic characters, and a nice balance of humor are all here.
A CHARACTER WE CAN IDENTIFY WITH
The protagonist, Izuku Midorya, is a whiny whiner who is more annoying than irritating and has a decent story. However, the secondary characters in this manga are the best! The author has brought them to life with authentic personalities and a real role in the story.
A RICH UNIVERSE
Let’s talk about superheroes in general. Thanks to his point of view on superpowers and the importance we give them, the manga has changed our perception of super abilities and the respect we give them. The author was able to turn those small, unlikely and insignificant tactics like scotch tape into a resource and generate enormous power!
The ideas and different interpretations of remodeling are completely crazy. I always drift between manga and comics, but Kohei Horikoshi manages to effectively integrate this traditional American hero concept. The line is beautiful and straight, we love it.
A REAL IMMERSION IN THE WORK OF A HERO
In My Hero Academia, we discuss the status of the hero as a vocation rather than vigilantism. They are, but they are bound by rules. So yes, it’s good to have it presented that way.
The only problem is that it eliminates the dark, messed up side of the superhero that you get in the comics. But that’s fine, to each his own, and don’t mess with me in Batman’s court…
REAL LIFE LESSONS AND EMOTIONS
Even heroes have their flaws, which is why this series is so appealing. We all make mistakes, but we try to move forward and improve. This series gives me a cure for heartache, because we are not portrayed in manga as stereotypes with exaggerated emotions; instead, there is a real moral behind all those muscles and abilities…
AN INCREDIBLE ANIMATION
The anime is simply huge. In Japan, the consecration for a manga is to know if it will be animated or not. This is the case with MHA and it is a little bomb too. The story clearly takes precedence over the comic, even if some ideas are different, but there is nothing to complain about the animation. Great!
