The majority of Dobie Junior High have been reading the manga and highly enjoy it. Even some teachers are beginning to watch it. Mr.Viera, is an 8th grade science teacher who has began the series and is looking forward to seeing more of it,”I just recently started watching My Hero Academia,” he said. “I know I like it, just don’t know it yet.”

My Hero Academia is based on a school for people to become a hero themselves, Izuku Midoriya, also known as “Deku”, is the main character of the series, and was a boy who wasn’t born with the power known as a ”Quirk”.

Eventually Izuku Midoriya met his one and only idol, the number one hero in the world, All Might, when he was attacked by a villian. At first, All Might felt like he had nothing to do with Izuku, soon after, the villain that had attacked Deku, went free and took hold of Katsuki Bakugou, his former friend.

Izuku soon proves that he could still be a hero without a quirk when the former heroes couldn’t. Though, Izuku did eventually get scolded in the end while they were all over Bakugou. But, All Might praised him for his bravery, and decided to pass down his quirk to Deku, the quirk known as ”One For All”. That’s when his journey to becoming the Number One Hero begins.

For most viewers, the most treasured character from My Hero Academia is Todoroki Shouto, the most emotional, yet private and respectful character. Todoroki Shouto wasn’t noticed in the background of season one, but some people do recognize his half and half hair color.

Seth Matthews, an 8th grade student at Dobie said he watches the series. “Todoroki, because he’s beautiful. I had this thought the other day he could go with any emo song in an AMV,” he said.

There are also other characters who have a reputation, some good, some bad. The least favorite character is Mineta Minoru, a disturbing, unpleasant student of Yuuei (U.A.) High School. 

Kyleigh Hiseley, an 8th grade student at Dobie, would always had some sort of the merchandise on her at Dobie, “My least favorite… it’s pretty obvious, Mineta. I’d say Deku’s okay, he’s a little emotional, and I don’t like it when he cries over everything, basically Deku isn’t my favorite character, but he isn’t my least favorite.” she replied.

In March 2017, My Hero Academia had over 10 million copies of the manga. In August 2018, it had over 16 million copies of the series. About a year ago, December 2018, the manga had over 20 million copies that had to be printed because of the popularity. Boku No Hero Academia is worth watching because of the inspiration from most of the tropes. Izuku Midoriya (Deku) is the main character that is similar to shounen leads, but his growth is well developed it keeps you especially interested.
