Synopsis of Boku no Hero Academia
The emergence of “Quirks,” newly discovered superpowers, has steadily increased over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities, from element manipulation to shapeshifting. This leaves the rest of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one of those individuals. Since he was a child, the ambitious high school student has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unjust fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s Quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku as his successor!
After enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA Academy, a prestigious prep school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising. With his strange but talented classmates and the looming threat of an evil organization, Izuku will soon learn what it truly means to be a hero.
