My Hero Academia follows the evolution of a normal, every day teen who grows up powerless in a world where the majority of people have some sort of super power. Izuku Midoriya longs to have a power (or quirk) like his peers, but his never manifest.
The thing about Midoriya, though, is that he has the heart and passion for justice of a true hero, which brings him to the attention of All Might, the Japan’s greatest, most powerful super hero- the laughing crusader for justice that rights wrongs with a smile on his face.
All Might has a secret- he’s losing his ability to use his powers, and needs to find someone he can pass them on to. He sees Midoriya as his natural successor, and begins training the boy to use the extraordinary powers of “One For All”, and assume the mantle of Japan’s greatest hero.
My Hero Academia is one of those anime series that has so much damned heart that it’s impossible not to fall in love with it. Bring on season four, Funimation! PLUS ULTRA!
