I love a series where someone achieves their goals through hard work and determination.

Calling My Hero Academia a cult phenomenon might seem a bit much, but no other anime has reached such appeal since Attack on Titan.

If you love superheroes but are put off by the many barriers to entry for getting into modern cape comics, My Hero Academia is for you.

Apr 29, 2019 | Full Review…

[My Hero Academia] takes the standard "Underdog becomes powerful" narrative and ads some new flair to it.

Apr 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Izuku Midoriya: Origin marks a strong start for My Hero Academia that effectively blends tones and begins this adventure in an exciting way.

Apr 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The first season of My Hero Academia delivers thirteen episodes of fantastic action, elevated by a heartfelt story that's wrapped around a core cast of memorable and relatable characters.

Apr 29, 2019 | Rating: 9.0/10 | Full Review…

It's a fresh spin on a genre that's laden with tropes, and the fights are very good.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

MHA is a lot of things. A new successful property from Jump!, a cross of Western comics and manga, a school-set series AGAIN, but most importantly, it's a great to watch.

Jan 26, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

A whole bundle of fun.

Audience Reviews for My Hero Academia: Season 1

    Nothing disappointing about this show from start to end.
  • Nov 03, 2020
    Good Season interms of the story, Animation is okay. Worst in terms of Art style in anime as well as in Manga and when i say art style/design is worst its about the way the Main Character Deku is shown or drawn. When it comes to a Appearance or Physique every characters are drawn properly except for Deku. Deku was skinny initially and after that 10 months of training, he was well built but should have been slightly bigger but still fine. Right after that Beach panel, from the start of the entrance exam he goes back to skinny and off model. It looked as if he never did that training which is BS again and it seems like Author/artist doesn't know even how to draw a well built body when it comes to Deku, but knows how to draw for the other characters like height, body size, physique in manga and in Anime and its disappointing. even characters who are shorter than him all look well built than him which is again Its the reason i lost interest with Season 1 and is my most hated season along with its equivalent Manga chapters in MHA. The Artist doesn't know how to draw when it comes to Deku in manga and Anime.

    Considering as the 1st season the storyline is slow but needed for the character development thus for me it was good but could have been better if the season would have more episodes

    Incredible Show with masterful story-telling.
  • May 19, 2020
    the beginning of one of the best anime ever, so yeah. it's an awesome season

    Boku No Hero Academia is a masterpiece of modern superhero anime, as it shines through with cunning action, brilliant storytelling, and truly down-to-earth characters.
  • Aug 09, 2019
    Superb anime series that is as much an ode to the Silver Age of Comic Books. The story of Deku and how he becomes one of the world's greatest heroes in fantastic, as he goes from a kid without any powers to someone inheriting the mantle of the world's greatest hero. All-Might, his idol, is equally excellent, delivering a fantastic superhero that is believable yet inspirational, even when he goes over the top some times. The action sequences are top notch while the humor is fun as well (the scenario where the teachers get to act out as villains during a training exercise is hilarious). However, plenty of drama is provided as well, especially when Deku and his fellow students are challenged at what makes a hero. The world is especially fun as well, crafting a realistic that imagines what it would be like if the population gained superpowers, along with how they handle them (the fact superheroes must go threw training and get licenses is the basis for the series). Overall, one of the best anime in years, especially for superhero fans.
