    I plucked this tiny tome off of several students' Want-to-Read shelves and it is first book I've read that actually included instructions on how to read it---insofar as you read from right to left, beginning in the upper right-hand corner. Actions, sound effects & word bubbles in proper Japanese order- are completely reversed from the English order. It was a bit trickier than I expected at first (and I realized that "my" high school students are ...

    Kids with superpowers go to superhero school to be taught by existing superheroes how to be superheroes. So it’s the X-Men? Yup. Except way shittier! And that’s My Hero Academia! Boo! I give it an F! It really is that derivative, at least going by this first volume. Creator/writer/artist Kohei Horikoshi basically rips off the X-Men. He calls mutations/superpowers “quirks” in a feeble attempt to make it seem less blatant but that’s about...

    *3.5/5*This is a really fun manga, but I think it's better experienced as an anime! I did watch the anime before reading this so that could have affected my enjoyment, but I think the action and the humor just come across more naturally on screen. I don't think I'll continue reading this series, but if you haven't seen the anime I'd definitely recommend picking this up!

    Is it only in my imagination, or there is tendency of Japanese mangaka to create superhero genre manga? After One Piece that in borderline with pirates with super powers theme, then there are manga such as ワンパンマン 1 Wanpanman 1 , 斉木楠雄のΨ難 1 Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan 1 , and 文豪ストレイドッグス 1 Bungō Stray Dogs 1 .From the first volume, what I could say, it is a "from zero-to-hero" theme in a high school that speci...

    I don't normally read shounen (mostly because omg some of them are the longest series ever) but this one is relatively new so it's like there's 167 volumes out. Yet.I personally love the character designs, but mostly just for the students. The pro heroes are typically over-the-top with crazy costumes and even crazier hair styles. The contrast between the students and the foes really helps with distinguishing who is who.The story is what you'd exp...

    Despite all the manga I've racked up that is on my TBR, someone recommended this to me a couple of days ago and I read it all in one day. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great introduction to the series. I can say that I know I'm prime audience because I love hero stories. LOVE. While this is of course tasked with some of the leg-work of the introduction and while I did lose myself in the action (and how it was drawn) a few times, I thou...

    Ok so I haven't read manga since I was like 12 (and even then I never delved into it too much) but recently a lot of my friends have gotten into this series (and the anime) and I thought it looked cool so I was like "sure why not." And!! Damn I really enjoyed this and ended up reading the whole first volume in one sitting, whoops.Thoughts:- I really like the premise & world-building. Obviously the whole superhero/superpowers thing has been done m...

    I decided to check some Manga out and this is what was recommended to me. I've never been able to get into Manga due to the whole reading backwards thing. I still don't get why with today's technology they don't just flip the art around and present this as a normal graphic novel for Western audiences, but I digress.The story is about one of a very few young people who are born without "quirks" or superpowers. All he desires is to help people. Alo...

    Sure to be the next big thing in the Shonen Jump world, MHA is already gaining enough momentum to be mentioned in the same discussions as One Piece or Naruto. The story is perfect for non-Japanese audiences as well as it has created a world which is both familiar for superhero fans while offering something very new and refreshing. It engages the audience as you feel for the main character Deku as he faces many trials and tribulations with a healt...

    I have done this review a little differently. Instead of reviewing the volume as a whole, I have reviewed the individual issues. Please see my reviews as follows;Issue 1 - The introduction to the world, the people and the powers. Mangas always confuse me a little but by the end, I understood what was happening and enjoyed it! I am excited to know more about this world and about the main characters!Issue 2 - So begins the long trek for Izuku to be...

    Overall, I think it was a decent intro to this manga series, although I am not as hooked as some other people right now. I find the concept really interesting and the art style is also quite good but there were just not as many exciting events in this first volume as I hoped. Especially the backstory of the protagonist was a bit rushed in my opinion, although I found him a likable character in general and I think that he has a lot of potential. T...

    Nota bene: First ever manga that I've read. Such a heroic story that talks about how to accomplish dreams no matter the circumtances that we are faced against. Must read.4.5 stars.

    Okay, well this is not what I thought it'd be at all, but I'm definitely continuing on with the series.

    Not the most overly original concept or story. I was hoping for more to build off the basis however it was pretty standard and what youd expect. Some will love it

    My Hero Academia (MHA) is a very relatable story for anyone with a loser mentality, at an era when a large portion of people reading manga suffer from that. It doesn’t do something out of the ordinary, and certainly does not deconstruct everything we know about shonen stories, as many insist. It is just helping the reader cope with his anxieties by giving him a story where the loser gets all the fame and glory. Basically, it’s just well-prese...

    Full review - I did not expect to start reviewing manga yet this is a lot of fun and it deserves a lot of attention! https://todaysdecameron.wordpress.com...Just lovely. In a world where most of the people have abilities, wanting to be a hero is a possible carrier. Yet, what happens when you are part of the minority without powers? How can you become a hero? Well, will power is the answer - and help from a person who will become your hidden mento...

    Izuku Midoriya’s dream is to become a superhero, like his idol All Might. The problem with that idea is that Midoriya belongs to the minority of people on his world who were born without a Quirk, a superpower of some kind. His former friend Katsuki Bakugo, who has a powerful Quirk and is naturally gifted, rubs this in at every opportunity, calling Midoriya “Deku” (no good qualities.) Midoriya has been training hard, but even when he meets h...

    Amazing! This is the first volume in what is sure to be a winning manga series. It is very surprising that we haven't got a Japanese take on the western superhero. Kohei has created a unique world and a great introduction to the quirky powers of My Hero Academia or Hero Academy as many fans are calling it. We basically follow middle school kid Izuku who dreams of becoming a superhero even though he doesn't have a superpower or what the people cal...

    This book is a lot of fun. A origins story on a bunch of kid superheros going to a school to learn how to be heroic. The majority of the population in this world has some sort of quirk that gives them supernatural abilities. Izuku Midoriya is in the minority with no quirk. All he has is his dream of becoming a super hero. Then he meets All Might, who is looking for a successor and finds one in Izuku. Only thing is, Izuku wasnt made to support suc...

    This reminds me of Tiger & Bunny. A lot. If the timelines would match up, then I'd say that this could be a far-flung future of the T&B universe. That's the kind of series this is judging by the first volume.In this world, ~80% of the population are born with "quirks," super human abilities that may or may not make sense. Those with hero-worth quirks work to go to U.A., a school for super heroes in training. Izuku "Deku" Midoriya was one of the u...

    It's interesting to see a Japanese take on the American superhero genre. In the end, though, it doesn't really get the to the heart of superheroes. It basically lifts part of the plot from the movie Sky High. A weak and underpowered high schooler gets into a school for training superheroes and has to compete against those who have much stronger powers. The thing that I didn't really like is that none of the heroes feel heroic. In fact, they are a...

    I just binge watched the show so now I gotta go back and read all the manga. It's so much fun! I love all the weird "quirks"/superpowers everyone has and I love Deku. ❤ I just binge watched the show so now I gotta go back and read all the manga. It's so much fun!

    My Hero Academia, by Kouhei Horikoshi is a manga series that is in many ways a tribute to American super-hero comics. From the chapter titles having artwork that emulates the covers of American comic books, and the general style and tone being more in line with American super-hero comics than manga, the book is one big shout-out to the American genre.The story takes place in a world where increasing numbers of the populace has developed abilities...

    currently finished: Chapter 192Izuku and Shouto Todoroki are my precious sons that deserve all of the happiness in the world.(and okay, fine, Kacchan is growing on me, what an absolute tsundere)Update | July 26, 2018:Volume 11 may be my favorite so far. It was so. damn. good. All Might is a true hero. I cannot wait for Izuku to become not a symbol of peace, but a symbol of hope.Update | July 27, 2018:Volume 14: I am such an emotional wreck. I act...

    3.5 StarsThis is probably one of the most well known manga on the market right and has been coined as possible becoming the next "it" series. And honestly I can understand why. Let me preface this by saying that I do not read a lot of shonen manga unless you count my reading of Food Wars. Shonen has a lot of action which changes the art style and can come across as a lot more convoluted unless you are used to more action forms of art. This, unfor...
