My Hero Academia Vol.1 Review

Today I will be reviewing the manga series My Hero Academia. This will just be for the first volume.

Let me tell you what it is about.

It is about this world where 80% of the population has superpowers. These superpowers are known as quirks( I am not joking) and Izuku Midoriya is one of the 20% who don't. These quirks can range from literally anything. Anyway,  Izuku is quite upset when he is told he will never have a quirk of his own, despite both his parents possesing their respective quirk. Even at age 24 he still thinks he can get one naturally. A lot of people bully him because he has no quirk. He meets a popular superhero known as All Might. After Izuku does an act of bravery, All Might decides to transfer his quirk to Izuku. Nobody actually knows what his quirk is. But he does decide to transfer it to him. With All Might's quirk he passes the practical exam for the U.A High's hero course. He passes and that is all I am goimg to tell you.
You should definitely read it, it is great. All that talk about it being the next Naruto, in my opinion, is right.
