My Hero Academia – Season Three

At the end of season two, the members of Class 1A were desperately trying to pass their exams so that they could attend the summer training camp. It was another logical deception from Aizawa Sensei, as they all get to go. Not long after settling in, they are attacked by a group of villains.

They survived the attack, but not everything went well. Bakugo was kidnapped by the League of Villains with the aim to turn him to their side. Midoriya leads a small group of classmates to attempt to save him. Meanwhile, the pro-heroes have organised a massive offensive against the League. Everything seems to be going well until All Might’s nemesis shows up.

After a public backlash, U.A. implements dorms for the students. With the new term beginning, they start to work on their ultimate moves in preparation for the provisional hero licensing exams. There, they will be up against the brightest hero students from across the country. Continue reading “My Hero Academia – Season Three”

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

All Might has been invited to the floating research island I. It’s the summer break at school and he has asked Midoriya to accompany him. Once they’ve cleared the state of the art security they are greeted by Melissa Shield, the daughter of All Might’s old partner.

Noticing that All Might is struggling to keep his hero form, David Shield convinces Melissa to give Midoriya a preview of the I-expo, a fair for all things hero related. Midoriya quickly learns that he’s not the only member of Class 1A to have come to the island.

During a fancy reception to officially open the I-Expo a team of villains take over the island, capturing all the pro-heroes. Midoriya and his friends will have to overcome incredible odds if they are to save the day. Continue reading “My Hero Academia: Two Heroes”

My Hero Academia – Season Two

In a show of strength, the U.A. Sports Festival goes ahead as planned despite the recent villain attack. It consists of three rounds – an obstacle course, a cavalry charge, and a head-to-head tournament. Midoriya, still unable to control the powers All Might gave him, uses all of his cunning and smarts to win the obstacle course.

But this just puts a target on his back in the cavalry charge and his team only just scrape through at the last moment. The head-to-head tournament puts each of the heroes-in-training in one on one bouts where only the winner advances. It’s no real surprise who wins, but I’m not saying anything.

Following the U.A. Sports Festival, all of the heroes are assigned internships with professional heroes. To All Might’s horror, Midoriya is assigned to his former teacher, Gran Torino. Meanwhile, a villain emerges who sees the current hero statuses as anything but heroic is on a one-man crusade to change things Continue reading “My Hero Academia – Season Two”

My Hero Academia – Season One

In a world where eighty percent of the populace has developed a quirk, Izuku Midoriya dreams of one day becoming a superhero even though he is quirkless. On the way home from school he is attacked by a villain who seeks to use Midoriya’s body to escape from the heroes.

Number one hero, All Might shows up in the nick of time and rescues Midoriya. Desperate for some advice, Midoriya tags along and discovers All Might’s true identity. He advises Midoriya to give up on his dreams and that he should focus on doing something he would be more suited to.

Deflated, Midoriya heads home only to find Bakago, the school bully being attacked by the same villain. With no heroes able to stop it and All Might struggling to maintain his hero form, Midoriya rushes in, inspiring All Might, who may just yet have another secret to reveal. Continue reading “My Hero Academia – Season One”
