'My Hero Academia', which is also called 'Boku No Hero Academia' (BNHA) in Japanese, was released as a manga written by Kohei Horikoshi, published in the 'Weekly Shonen Jump', a weekly comic magazine published in Japan.

After garnering a huge fan following in a short time, the manga was adapted into an anime series of the same name. 'My Hero Academia' has four anime seasons as of January 2021.

Set in a world where most humans possess superhuman abilities known as quirks, the people who use their quirks for evil are called villains, and the ones with quirks who stop them are called pro heroes. The plot revolves around Izuku Midoriya, also known as Deku, the main protagonist of the series who, unfortunately, does not possess any quirks.

But he still dreams to become a strong hero like his idol All Might, who is a former hero and a teacher at U.A.

High School, a school that trains people with quirks to become pro heroes. He is considered to be the world's greatest hero since his retirement.

All Might gives Izuku Midoriya his quirk after he witnessed him heroically save a bully who was being attacked by a villain. And so the adventure of Izuku begins as he is given the opportunity to study in the U.A.

High School as the successor of All Might, where he meets various other personalities and friends, from who he learns to become stronger, and to face villains and all that life has to throw his way. His path to achieving his dreams had cleared up.
