My Hero Academia first aired in 2016 and since then, the series has been on rocket boosters, becoming one of the most popular anime series of today. With its vast roster of unique characters, epic fight scenes, and original premise, it’s no surprise that My Hero Academia has caught on.

The series follows Izuku Midoriya as he strives to become a superhero despite being born with no hero powers of his own. Japan’s greatest Hero All Might sees potential in Izuku and names him as his successor, helping him to get into school for heroes-in-training.

Based on the manga of the same name that was first released in 2014, there is plenty to like about My Hero Academia. Right now is the best time to get into the series if you have yet to do so, as there is plenty of content to indulge in.
