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? Getting into U.A. High School was difficult enough, but it was only the beginning of Izuku's long road toward becoming a superhero. The new students all have some amazing powers, and although Izuku has inherited All Might's abilities, he can barely control them. Then the first-year students are told they will have to compete just to avoid being expelled!
Sinds ik deel 1 van deze manga heb gelezen, heb ik niet meer kunnen stoppen. Vaker mangas gelezen, maar dit is wel een van de leukere die ik heb gezien. Het is niet zo dat het verhaal per se anders is dan andere verhalen, maar somehow is dit een hele frisse, nieuwe manier van vertellen en het verhaal wordt definitely gemaakt door interessante karakters met veel ontwikkeling en diepgang in hun achtergrond en eigen verhaal. Echt 100% waard om te kopen, je gaat niet teleurgesteld zijn.
