Set in a world where people gain superpowers called Quirks, protagonist Izuku Midoriya (or Deku) dreams of becoming a hero just like All Might, but doesn’t have a Quirk of his own. After meeting All Might and learning about his deteriorating health, Deku inherits All Might’s Quirk, One For All, and attends U.A. High School where his childhood rival, Katsuki Bakugo, attends. 

My Hero Academia has inspired several other adaptations like video games, spin-offs, light novels and movies. It also gained popularity overseas and became a must-watch shounen anime for old and new fans alike.
