Have you ever gotten tired of watching generic anime all the time? the kind that usually involves a high schooler with only the desire of leading a normal life suddenly developing amazing powers out of nowhere then beating up the ‘not-so-spectacular ‘ bad guys and ultimately saving the world from some godforsaken fate. Well…the good news is this new series called Boku no Hero academia(My hero academia) which also involves the same above mentioned elements but with the return of everyone’s favourite “Hero-Villain ” chemistry similar to the elements of Marvel-DC (for the most part) and awe-inspiring anime elements as well.
The story follows the adventures of Izuku Midoriya, a powerless middle school student in a world where people have miraculously began to develop super powers called quirks. Izuku,also known as Deku a name his childhood friend Bakugou Katsuki calls him to mock him by is an ambitious boy whose sole dream is to be a hero like his long time idol AllMight. Izuku is constantly ridiculed by his classmates owing to being quirk less to the point where he is threatened from even applying for a Hero program in the countries most prestigious High school U.A high, and how he still chooses to pursue his dream despite all that.
Izuku is a bright and strong willed protagonist as we see his unyielding desire to become a hero despite all odds. The series has a vivid set of characters with unique abilities and personalities. It has a fairly explosive t and a very grand closing for the first season. During the course of the series we see very good character development for our protagonist ,who grows from being a timid boy to a hero with an analytical mind who constantly uses brawns and brains to overcome situations and coming out victorious.
Overall it’s a recommended series that’s a must watch if you enjoy other Shonen anime’s like Naruto ,One piece ,Bleach with the familiar scenarios of heroes,villains and trendy plus ‘quirky’ superhero costumes.
