What's a hero? For Izuku Midoriya, the answer to that question has always been simple: "Everything I want to be!" And who is the ultimate hero? Well, the legendary All Might, of course. All Might is the number one ranked hero and also the "Symbol of Peace" in the world. Not in his wildest dreams could Izuku have imagined that he would soon cross paths with his childhood hero...

In Boku no Hero Academia, status is governed by "Quirks"—unique superpowers which develop in childhood. But, unfortunately, hero otaku Midoriya "Deku" Izuku never had a Quirk. That is, until he met All Might, the greatest hero of all time.

Izuku's transformation from dreamer to superhero begins at Yuuei Academy, the top-ranked hero-training high school in Japan. Izuku is on cloud nine when he's accepted to this prestigious academy, especially when he finds out that All Might is one of the teachers. What surprises does this mighty academy offer? And will Izuku be able to keep up with his elite classmates?

People are about to riot since the episode hasn't launched on the funi website, but it works on the app apparently. I should've just slept man.

There are three of these threads, but it's not clear which of them we will be using seeing that the mods are sleeping now. So for now, I'll just post in both of them seeing that the third one was obviously created by accident.

Episode 1

Izuku's background is explained here, and while he has the mindset to be a hero, the problem is that he doesn't have any Quirk. Katsuki sure is rubbing it in there. But it was his fateful meeting with All Might that changed his destiny as he was saved from a liquid monster as he says that anybody can be a hero. That was an impressive way to start this show to fully justify the hype this show has.

Just finished watching it, definitely good enough to justify staying up. Been reading the manga since when issue 1 came out & even then knew it would become an anime.

Because the show Discussion threads are intended for discussion of the show after it's actually available for viewing, and because of the apparently competitive nature of thread-starting, we ask that these threads not be posted until the first episode has actually aired. (In many cases there is already an "Anticipation thread for conversation before the show airs.)

Since this thread was started before the show aired, I've closed it. Please join the conversation at the new thread:
