The concept does not follow the usual storyline of most anime or manga wherein the protagonist is strong, to begin with. Izuku starts as a quirk-less or someone who has zero superpowers even though he has parents who have quirks.
His situation does not faze him at all, even with the constant bullying of the kids who have quirks, but with the help of his hero friends, Izuku strived for the best in everything that he did—even believing and accepting the derogatory name DEKU given to him by Katsuki Bakugo who he calls Kacchan. A hero friend, Ochaco Uraraka, encouraged Izuku that DEKU sounds like dekiru, which means to be able, which is why Izuku accepted Katsuki’s insult. There are a lot more concepts that you can find out about on this webpage about the anime.
So, why should you follow Boku No Hero Academia, asides from the superhero angle and real-world scenarios that you can relate to in the anime? Let us go over a few reasons why you should watch it.
The Setting Fits the Storyline Perfectly
No matter how innocent it may sound, the school is a perfect ground for the anime itself. How people are taught to grow with the quirks that they have, as well as how the kids interact with the adults around them, makes everything seem realistic if you take away the quirk concept.
There are adults in the story that keep the other characters in check. Still, their personalities add a unique insight on how the plotlines can easily be played with to drum up potential quirks that might make the story more interesting!
There Are Characters That We Can Easily Relate To
There are a lot of goals that you may see in the anime, and even if the series does not portray these heroes as the epitome of virtue, they are still shown as what they are supposed to be: that they are human, just with superpowers. These heroes have the same mentalities as us that they have different needs and wants that must be addressed, but even with the concept of quirks, they are the same as the rest of us, that they may make a mistake from time-to-time, but they learn and grow from those mistakes.
Heroes Run the World
Unlike the usual that we see in comics, heroes in quirks are not persecuted in the anime but are the people who run the world, or at least everything revolves around them as most of the people were thought to have quirks all around.
This might live up to a storyline that the quirk-less might be the ones who will get persecuted, but the current plot that the anime is working on may make the entire story seem farfetched. You might find discussions or forums that may discuss the same as on this webpage.
What the Show Is All About
We have listed down for you a few bits why you should watch it, but asides from those, one thing that the show focuses on where most people feel strongly about is how the concepts of friendship, struggles, and success are shown in the anime.
There may be different interpretations of how these three are played out in different animes. Still, Boku No Hero Academia has its flair, especially when it tried to portray the good overcomes evil bit, and that there is a time that someone else has to step up to the plate.
It might often prove difficult, especially for heroes that have been around for a long time. Still, heroes in the anime are like our leaders who have been successful in their chosen endeavors, but there will be a time that someone else has to take the helm and lead people to a new path of success.
