I really enjoyed this manga, i know im hooked on these series and im most likely going to pre-order Vol 2 &3.

Overall the story is really cool and fun. Kohei Horikoshi has obviously taken influence in american super hero comics & (what most people say) Naruto. I do see how this series can have some Naruto similarities; but these series is its own unique original story. I found myself actually close to the main charter and side characters. It was ones of the best new manga's i read this year and im looking forward to the next volume.

If you're on the fence as to whether to try this series (like I was) give it a go. The characters are fun and interesting, the world has depth and limitations (and history!) and the art starts well and gets better as you go.
I'm about as picky as they come, but this is one of my new favourite series.

As you go, there are references to Western culture and American comics, so if you know anything about those, you'll have at least a chuckle.

I picked this up for one reason, and one reason only. The author of My Hero Academia did one of my favorite stories before this, Barrage, that was trajectly cancelled too soon. Recently, MHA has been getting a huge positive response, and at 5 volumes currently out in Japan, this is the author's longest series. MHA is about a world where "Quirks" or super powers are now common place, you can actually go out and become a hero as a job! The quirks are really interesting and unique, the characters so far are very straight forward. The first two chapters really gives you a lot to take in, and I feel like it was done that way just to get to the good stuff; however, that right there already sent an "uh-oh" alert.

After Naruto ending, this series and Black Clover have been getting so much buzz and hype for being Naruto's successor. And I do see hints of Naruto in this, but MHA definitely stand on it's own. It's only one volume, but from all the hype, all the buzz, and any enormity that it's been getting, I must admit I expected more. So far it's your standard story, nothing has made me think it's bad, but nothing so far as made me think it's better than just average. Although, by far the best thing about this first volume is the presentation. I just can't stop gushing over how well made the cover art and spine, and back are.

Midoriya lives in a world where everyone has a superpower and is striving to be a hero. Except for him. Which means he’s bullied. But he also wants to be a superhero so badly that he knows everything about them, has books filled with notes, and has a bit of a hero-streak in him.

Midoriya is a great main character for this story. He’s smart, has been picked on and cries easy, and he just wants to be a superhero. The scenes we get of him as a child just hurt my heart, that poor little boy. I just want to hug him.

And then he finally gets his chance.

There are a bunch of different characters as well, and a lot of neat powers. There’s All Might, the biggest superhero that helps Midoriya, who’s real identity is a secret. There’s Bakugo, who bullies Midoriya, and wants to be the meanest villain around. Tenya, a guy who relies on his smarts in conversation, who I think is kind of great. Then there’s Ochako, the girl that befriends Midoriya, and she’s nice. And their teacher, who is the toughest teacher around and will fail everyone if he wants to.

I like the premise of this series, and this volume was really enjoyable. The group of characters are a lot of fun, and I’m actually interested to read more.

This was an amusing take on the superhero story. Something happened fifty years before and now 95% of all people are born with super powers. But our main character is one of the few that does not and make it worse he wants nothing more than to be a real hero like his hero All Might. All Might is moved by Izuku's courage and helps him become a hero but that is a plot secret so I am not going to tell you how. So now all Izuku has to do is get into the hero academia of his dreams. I liked it well enough but it is just a very basic shonen story. I do not think that I will be continuing this series at this time.

I give this volume a Four out of the Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this book from my local library.

i love this book it seriously puts the main character into the same position as any other comic book reader What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks” at age four? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn’t got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny…

This show became really popular this year, 2016 and I decided to read it or watch it one day, and I stumbled upon it in my closest library, so I pickrd it up. To be honest, I didn't have many high expectations on it and I hesitated multiple times to read it but finally I did it and I LOVE it, it might just become one of my favorites honestly. One of the scenes in the first chapters was so incredible and it gave me goosebumps, it hooked me immediately and I already picked up some of the rest and I will watch the anime show as well, I think everyone should read because it has a little of everything in it, simply amazing.

I first hear of this manga because it came up as one of those recommendations after binge reading/watching One Punch Man. I downloaded a sample, and I was intrigued by the quirky art style of this manga. So I decided "Hey, why not?"

About 100 pages in, I started to wonder if I made the right choice. The beginning of the storyline starts out rough, in terms of technique. I started to think of this as a cliche "underdog with no power saves the day" story, but with much more dramatic feel to it. I wasn't a fan.

However, I told myself to keep going, holding on to the hope that things will get better. Words could not express how glad I was that I continued. The story improves greatly, introducing you to a plethera of quirky, original characters, while keeping that drama from the beginning to a minimum. I find myself to be hooked on this series, and I wait patiently for the next volumes to come to pull me even deeper into the universe of My Hero Academia.

I don't really care for manga, or anime, much. That said, when I saw the scrawny hero and his weird crybaby hero wanna-be filling up my tumblr dashboard, I decided to check it out. I ended up watching the entire anime series (season one so far), and reading a good chunk of the manga. It's that good. It's funny, charming, sweet, and not what you would expect. The top hero is not the arrogant man you would expect him to be, but instead he's gentle, sweet, caring, and from what I understand from future chapters, he's a feminist, which is so unheard of in anime. The crybaby wanna-be is a great character in that he is not special, and that's what makes him so special. All the characters are given great development. The story is wonderful. Please read MHA.

I'm caught up with this series and it is one of my favorite weekly manga. I like that our main protagonist is very intelligent unlike most air headed main shonen characters. This is just the beginning but chapter by chapter you notice the art and story start to get better and better drastically. There's a good reason why it's selling so good in Japan.

Another superhero manga and this has been my favourite. The characters are high school age but the whole story is fun and like a slice of life story crossed with battle manga, though not much battling goes on in the first volume. Our main character does not have a "quirk" in this future society where 80% of the people are now born with "quirks" which is the new name for superpowers. He still wants to be a hero though and attend Hero University. When word gets out about a heroic deed he performed by saving a life without regard to his own, the hero All Might takes him on as a protege and what transpires for most of the book is a Karate Kid training mentorship between the two. The last chapters of the book have him starting school and meeting other hero teens. Lots of development on the main group of characters. This is more a comedy/humour manga and the school environment already seems to be giving off a Harry Potter vibe keeping me interested to see where the next volume will take the plot.

First of all, if you have not read My Hero Academia and you're going through the Reviews to see what other people think, all I have to say is, JUST... DO IT! Just buy it! It is AMAZING.

If you like Superheroes, you'll love it.

If you like Shonen, you'll love it.

Just....buy it and read it! Trust me, it is WORTH IT.

Ok, so thi was a surprisingly good read. I didn't know what to expect but it was pretty awesome. However there was a little fan service. Granted it wasn't a ton but I certainly didn't appreciate it. With ou that i would hav given it 5 stars.

My Hero Academia (Or, Boku no Hero Academia) is the newest smash hit manga to come out of Shounen Jump.

From what i've read, it's a decent Manga, especially considering today's standards. i'd probably place Volume 1 around a 6.5/10

I Highly recommend this for people who enjoy Naru(crap)to.

Poorly written drek that tries to make a fun twist on superheroes but offers nothing new and depends heavily on pre-existing manga tropes with poorly named and lazily designed superheroes and genaric characters.
Please RateVol. 1, My Hero Academia
