New Spin On the Anime Hero Business!!


Oh, my, goodness, can I get a Missouri Smash?? Lol, if you know what I’m saying. Maybe you know where I got that from? How about the new hero society anime show, “My Hero Academia?” The show is different than anything out with the superhero type stuff and done by Funimation. I’ve been hearing about it for months and seeing pictures as I pass through the net. I keep reading that it’s amazing and all these other accolades. Well, I blew all of that off and didn’t take notice. Just the other day a fellow writer at did a review on the show. I happen to see it and I took notice quickly. He gave the show high praise.

My Hero Academia, season one, is a quick run through. Kohei Horikoshi is the original creator of the manga for the show. This is his first major hit from his work, and the skies the limit. The director Kenji Nagasaki has worked on some big titles such as: Tenjho Tenge, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and Monster. The production company behind the show is Studio BONES, who isn’t known for hits. This show from top to bottom is great. The show looks like a manga that can move, the animation switches from time to time. It keeps you on your toes for the full 25 minutes. The story is even better than I thought half-way through season one.

Our main character Izuku Midoriya lives in a world where 90% of the population has talents or superpowers; known as Quirks. He studies heroes and villains and wants to be the greatest hero of all time. One issue though Midoriya is of the 10% without a Quirk. Suddenly one day he shows he’s worthy to be a hero by none other than his idol, “All Might.” What does that mean though? Check out the show and deem it as one of your favs. Let me know what you think in the comments.
