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 manga is soh guuuuudddd! If you like sort of superhero, coming of age ish books or tv shows, this is one I would definitely recommend for you. Its abt this 14-15 ish year old boy, Izuku, or Deku. The manga follows his journey through basically inheriting superpowers by eating one of the most popular hero's hair strand. Its gross, but it works.

                I am a HUGE anime fan! (My favorites are My Hero Academia, Sailor Moon, and Pokemon!) I read My Hero Academia original manga series and the My Hero Academia: Smash!! series. I really, really love this series! My favorite characters are Todoroki, Toga, and Momo Yaoyorozu!😃 I really reccomend this series!

                  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.

                      Japanese comics are called Mangas! They're great. This is a book and a show so you can check that out too :)
