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…

    I loveee the manga and anime! its a super awesome shonen manga (meaning its directed towards young boys, tho girls and older people can read it) that includes the protag, Izuku Midoriya who is quirkless (no superpowers) who dreams of becoming a hero. This book is super action-packed but also really funny LOL the characters are well-written, you may hate some or love some characters. 5 stars! Recommended for mature 10-11 and 12-16 year olds in general (coming from a 5th grader). mostly because of the swearing and inappropriate references.

          I love this book, Bakugou is my favorite I can not wait to read all the books ^.^ i love anime, i cant stop being a fan. In a world where quirks are the norm Izuku Midoriya is a boy who has dreams of becoming a hero like his idol All Might but his rival Katsuki Bakugou bullies him on being quirkless and says Izuku won't ever become a hero, until All Might gives him his quirk "All For One" after he proves he's worthy of having all might's power and he becomes a student at U.A High and is put into class 1-A and his homeroom teacher is the erasure hero: Eraserhead (Shouta Aizawa), I think it's a really good manga! I especially love the anime, sure it's got the "I'll save you" kinda plot but as you get into the manga/anime it gets really good and super entertaining it does contain some swearing but I'd recommend it to 13 - 16 I personally really love the anime! i love the show and it had DEKU on the front cover so of course its going to be AMAZING by the way have you guys seen him i want to drink his blood! ANYWAY, I REALLY LOVE THIS BOOK OMG <3
