My Hero Academia (Boku no Hīrō Akademia) is a Japanese superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, a boy born without superpowers (called Quirks) in a world where they have become popular, but who still dreams of becoming a hero himself.
He is scouted by All Might, Japan’s greatest hero, who shares his quirk with Midoriya after recognizing his potential, and later helps to enroll him in a prestigious high school for champions in training.
My Hero Academia has been one of the most popular anime in its category since the series premiered in 2016. The series has been able to take something saturated like superheroes and find emotionally rich new stories to tell that the materials are really taking to unique places.
Each season of the show looked at the gradual flight of Izuku “Deku” Midoriya and his colleagues to become professional champions. As Midoriya and his friends grew more mature, the tasks and dangers facing them also became more intense.
My Hero Academia is written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It originated from the one-shot My Hero, which Horikoshi wanted to turn into a series following the end of Barrage. It began its serialization in the manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump on July 7, 2014.
As of March 2020, the series has been collected into twenty-six tankōbon volumes. The series is licensed for the English-language release in North America by Viz Media, who published the first volume on August 4, 2015.
