My Hero Academia, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called Quirks at age four?

Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere!

Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study?

The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

Getting into U.A. High School was difficult enough, but it was only the beginning of Izuku's long road toward becoming a superhero.

The new students all have some amazing powers, and although Izuku has inherited All Might's abilities, he can barely control them.

Then the first-year students are told they will have to compete just to avoid being expelled!

Review by

NOV 3 - Love it! Superhero manga is pretty much like ninja manga with costumes and "My Hero Academia" adds in the school environment for a ton of action-packed fun. This did start off a little iffy for me but once the first training class was well underway I got hooked and the story had so much happening I found myself with a page-turner. For an extreme battle packed manga, it has a lot of character development and a pretty dedicated plot. Who the characters are as people is more important than their superhero identities and I really liked the way they were often drawn with half the face masked or a silhouette of the unmasked face behind the superhero. I'm really liking all of the characters at this point both the staff and students. Once again the plot builds up to quite an intense ending leaving me excited to read the next volume. Fans of Tiger & Bunny should like this too.
