So for the past couple of days ever since Naruto ended, I've been trying to find a series to fill the void (aside from Bleach, Fairy Tail, and Attack on Titan). There needed to be a proper void to make things satisfying that it could take Naruto's place. So a couple weeks now, Ive came been keeping my eye on Weekly Shonen Jump's rankings, and I saw this manga get between #1 and 5 during those couple of weeks. One of my subscribers on youtube also informed me that it's been number 3 ever since it's serialization. It's also been getting lead color pages for some time now (which could be another sign. More do Now I know many of you may be wondering LuckyChi7 what's it about?
To put it simple if you guys love Superheroes like Spiderman, Superman, Batman, etc. That is what the focus of this series is about, but it's not the generic type of super hero series it's got a bit of a interesting plot twist to it. The entire world of this manga everyone has a super power (born with it to be precise) at least 80% +. Since almost people have powers they want to be a superhero, and when it comes with power it also comes with great responsibility. With power also comes villains as well. That's the concept behind this manga.
Now the main male protagonist, Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero, but he doesn't possess any power. He can't do absolutely nothing. Best way to put it he's a weakling and he's a wimpy little kid, and despite that he still wants to be a hero. He continues to do so by looking to well known heroes in the story, and there are conflicts he goes through within this story. Out of all the people that surround him Izuku's the only one that doesn't have a power even though he wants to be a hero. Quite honestly that was enough for me to actually give this manga series a try, and here's what I find really interesting about it.
As of now in Japan there 19 chapters in total, but there translators releasing the chapter every other day so that we could catch up to the Japanese release dates. As far as translations go there are only 10 chapters, so we're not that far behind if you consider the speed of the chapter releases as of now.
Last thing I'd like to bring up is the art style, it's got that comic book feel to it. So again if you guys love comics then I'd definitely give it a shot because it's pretty easy to keep up with.
That's basically all I can give about this manga without going into Spoiler territory, but if any of you are interested in reading a new manga now that Naruto has come to an end then I recommend you check this out.
Fun Fact: english translation for this manga is My Hero Academia
