Synopsis

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?

That was cool, just finished watching it on TV now that it's finished airing.

Episode 1



The ED song is okay but I thought the OP song is fairly well done. All Might flying was actually quite amusing in ways.

Edit: pacing worries me slightly but I think they can manage.

Alright, there are three of these threads here, and I'm not sure which one is going to be used seeing that there's apparently no mod awake at the moment. Anyway, we are currently experiencing a server overload according to Justin Rojas on the Twitch TV. It's loading on the apps, though.

I'm confused

Why so many threads?

EDIT: It seems the OP just copied and pasted from Kurodanki's thread below. But they're all reported, so... hmm.

All of the mods must be all asleep right now. And the OP was copied from the anticipation threads, so that's why they look the same. Anyway, at the very least we can ignore the second one Gold T. Star started as I think he created it by accident, but seeing that Stark usually starts them and he posted in this one, I'm guessing that this one is the one we will go with.

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.

Favorite part of the episode.

I like that it has a nice emotional appeal with the main guy and his struggle to be a hero despite his lack of having a special ability, at least for now. Definitely a keeper.

Okay, I haven't seen the first episode yet (I'm not sure I'm going to, as I did not enjoy the manga and stopped reading it), so I'm just stepping in to say this thread is the one to use. The other two have been closed due to simple accidental doublepost duplication, or for having been started before the show aired.

I refer you to the post above mine for one difference. No one in OPM makes a juvenile bawdy pun like "ass-quaintance."

Yeah I was surprised to see it to be honest. The manga didn't have the pun at all lol.

Only One episode in and already better than OPM!

Feels like a comic come alive. Good voice acting so far. nice laughs along with a decent story/plot. Nice ED song too.

Looking forwards to where this will go.

It was an okay start, and I did enjoy the manga art style.

The emotional scenes didn't affect me much, nor did I feel the hype that this episode is supposed to have, and the MC is a little irritating for now (I've heard he gets better). I also wonder how a teacher would control juveniles with strong powers?
I'll see how the show develops, as powers I'm usually into.
