My Hero Academia is the story of a version of our world where people are born with Quirks - superpowers that can range from making a pencil float to shooting explosions out of their hands. It follows Izuku Midoriya, a boy born "Quirkless", but regardless of this he wants nothing more than to grow up and be like the number one hero in the world, All Might. Kohei Horikoshi takes the modern popularity of the superhero world and aptly puts it in the "shonen" (obstacle) jump format - a popular format of manga storytelling. My Hero Academia is a must-read for any fan of the manga superhero or shonen genre.
