Taking place in a world where 80% of the population have “Quirks” (superpowers), the story follows a wimpy now-high schooler named Midoriya “Deku” Izuku (Yamashita Daiki). But that didn’t stop him from dreaming of becoming a hero, even when the path seemed hopeless.
Then one day Izuku’s life took a turn, when he was caught by a deadly villain and saved by the #1 Hero, All Might (Miyake Kenta).
All times are given in a 24-hour, relative-day format where times are extended to show which day they belong to.
Very much in the tradition of your One Pieces, Dragon Balls, and Narutos, Boku no Hero Academia is a shounen battle story full of hot-blooded action.Naturally (and of course), only Suigen’s adopted sister and fellow classmate Riku Lin (Saitou Yuka) knows of Suigen’s gaming mastery, and it is this ability that Suigen must utilize to rescue his sister when Lin is suddenly and inexplicably kidnapped.Investigating a unique gaming device left behind for him by Lin, Suigen finds himself pulled into and trapped in a mysterious gaming world where the only way out—and the only way to Lin—is by fighting against those who seek to win. It’s hard not feeling dubious when looking over Gin no Guardian.What separates it from the pack is a relatively simple premise—it’s Earth, but everyone has superpowers!—and some of the best execution I’ve seen in years.I’d like to thank the writers as well for putting up with me (and my ridiculous demands and timelines) as we put this preview together.Passerby, Takaii, Stilts, Zephyr, Pancakes and Enzo continue to write the content as I basically sit on my butt all day doing nothing.But it’s more than that, as this is a series that’s able to take a bully like Bakugou Katsuki (Okamoto Nobuhiko) and treat him with more nuance than you’d expect.I went into the first season skeptical of the hype, but like One-Punch Man, the hype was deserved (though for different reasons).We will try to point out what appeals to us in each series, in the hope that it will help you determine if it coincides with your tastes.Disclaimer #2: Please note that this list does not reflect all the series airing this coming season.
