What’s up guys, gays, and gworls! It’s your fave blogger back at it like a crack addict ready to hop into this review!
So, to start it off, this is the first official anime that I’ve watched (please don’t drag me). I’ve been slacking all my life when it came to watching anime but I’m glad I started off here! Boku no Hero Academia AKA My Hero Academia is a show based on the manga (Japanese comic). In a world where 80% of the world has quirks (superpowers), everyone wants to become a hero like the best one of them all, All Might. Everyone envies and adores All Might, especially young Midoriya, a kid without a quirk. We see Midoriya trained by All Might himself and given a piece of his power, so he can become the hero he knows he can be. Can Midoriya make it through U.A. High School and become a pro-hero? Can Midoriya and friends make it through U.A. and go on to become the heroes they’re destined to be?
Let me start off by saying that young Deku (Midoriya’s hero name) has THE most hilarious face reactions in the entire show. Like it cannot be beaten! Like, look at this gif of him!
Deku has the perfect personality that everyone loves along with the superhero drive to help others regardless if he’s weak or not. He is also very book smart and has book tabs on every hero/villain he has seen in action to study their fighting skills and techniques. Although his power isn’t fully developed, his studies on them makes him a force to be reckoned with!
Just like Pokémon, it has fiery (literally) between Deku and a childhood friend/bully by the name of Bakugo who’s arrogant, cocky, and VERY prideful. He has an “explosive” personality to match his quirk. But that what makes him so great! I like how the creators made his character in such a way where he is a hero and someone who has the potential to become a villain.
Another character that’s worthwhile is Todoroki, a teen trying to separate himself from his father. A quite mysterious guy with two quirks in one trying to show others that he’s not like his father and that he can be better than him without using his similar powers makes him all the worthwhile. He’s like a calm version of Bakugo.
Both Bakugo and Todoroki have this weird, unspoken respect for each other while lowkey being each other’s rival.
Quality writing in my opinion. Of course, there are other heroes and heroines that you’re destined to like and find interest in which makes this another reason to watch this. This show is perfect because it embodies a good plot, good character development, everything is well-illustrated, and the fight scenes are immaculate! The fight scenes are just that grandiose honestly, especially the fight scenes with All Might! You also can’t forget it’s humorous scenes of titillation. That literally makes the show ten times better in my opinion.
If you’re just getting into anime just like I am, this is the perfect show to start off your watching endeavors. If you’ve already been watching anime but you have yet to see this, then you need to see it. Anyone not watching it is missing out big time! My Hero Academia is available now on streaming services such as Crunchyroll, FUNimation, and Hulu. If you want to buy the episodes, then it’s available on iTunes, Google Play, and DVD.
