As a manga enthusiast or an anime enthusiast, I can not miss out on “My Hero Academia”. A series that turned into a thriller movie. Its popularity is growing rapidly since its release in the year 2016. The story is written by Kohei Horikoshi, a director, and illustrator of this story.

The main story centers on Izuku Midoriya, a boy who is born with natural talent and superpowers that allow him to be different from the other boys in his social circle. Izuku dreams of being a superhero and the series are about him becoming comfortable in his skin.  

The series is a comedy-topped show that packs in the entire course of action as well as a variety of surprising fighting strategies. There is also a hint of romance throughout the series. Fans have concluded that “My Hero Academia” is the best Shonen serving for everyone.

My Hero Academia 2: Hero Note

It is a recap of season 1. I think it does a good job of explaining the main events.
These are the best soundtracks, and the main characters are featured. There was not much new animation.

It is a good reminder for those who have seen season 1 and a quick one at that. However, it does not take away from the most memorable scenes of season 1.

Let me conclude by saying that if you don’t want to watch a complete season 1 before watching season 2 then I think this episode is a good way to get in the mood for season 2.

OVA 1: (Jump Festa) My Hero Academia: Save! Rescue Training!

My Hero Academia Watch Order 2021 (Anime Series And Movies)

The only problem I have is that Todoroki was treated as a pathetic baby and bakugou took over and began attacking, while everyone else just stood there. Izuku takes all the credit for the final attack. Deku should have run straight in to help but he didn’t. 

Bakugou, who was a little more mean than normal (shocking, I know), and Mineta were the only ones truly themselves. It wasn’t that bad, but it was more of a fan-written vibe.

When some supervillains attacked the island security system, they took hostages. Everything was perfect. All Might has fallen out of favor and is now helpless due to his declining power. Midoriya and 1-A’s classmates are the only hope.
