Well, today we will be talking about the second season of the anime Boku No Hero Academia. This anime is pretty cool. It’s all about people having quirks ~ which can also be called as powers. So this awesome Shounen Anime, is getting a Season 2?, and this is about time, the creators of the anime told us. Cause, if they did not, I was pretty sure, that some riot will be going on online….
Before I get right into topic ; For those of who, do not this anime, here is a little review of the anime…..
I have already written about this anime, in another post, and you can go check it out, here. So anyways, since you must be lazy to click on that link, i will give you brief review of the anime.
Boku no Hero Academia seems like a fairly stereotypical anime. You have a main character, who in time will become extremely powerful, after suffering through some childhood neglect and / or separation from the others due to their singularity. This is much like your average set-up for any given Shounen anime.
With this said, it’s important to note that Boku no Hero Academia does this in a unique fashion which is very enjoyable. It explores the passion of youth. The passion of “What could I be when I grow up?!” and “I can be anything if I so choose!” without regard for the what-ifs that adults become so accustom to. This sheer youthful passion is then back boned by a plot which allows this passion to become a reality; of course through blood, sweat, and tears.
I’m very inclined towards liking the characters of this show. Each one feels very “real” and it feels almost like watching a motivational story from reality rather than watching an anime. You do have powers, and unrealistic settings of course – but the main character’s drive, his passion, his inability to achieve that passion due to reality holding him back, and his work to overcome that roadblock are all very real. This anime invokes in me a feeling that I had lost some time ago; a feeling of adventure, of fun, and simple joy. It makes me genuinely happy to see this young man slowly but surely achieve his dream of becoming a hero, and I’m on the edge of my seat ready to see how he does it.
As a last note, and a summary; the story of this show is basic – a young boy wants to become a hero, is not able to, and then works towards it in the face of the odds. The art I feel fits the series extremely well and I do quite like it. The sound is fantastic, the characters are unique and fun, and the enjoyment is, as of this moment, well worth waiting each week for.
If you enjoy shows about achieving goals, overcoming the odds, and simply being the best you can be, something like “One Punch Man”, then give “Boku no Hero Academia” a shot, and I am pretty sure you will love it.
So Let’s Talk about the topic now……
This year’s 30th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, which will ship on June 27, will be announcing that the anime adaptation of manga Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) will get second season. The manga was featured in color as a centerfold. More details will be announced at a later date.
The appearance of “quirks,” newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shape shifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.
Since he was a child, the ambitious middle school boy has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!
Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.
Boku no Hero Academia is written and drawn by Kouhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized since July 2014 and currently has nine compiled manga volumes, with the 9th volume just released last June 3. Bones has previously adapted the manga into a 13-episode TV anime adaptation that has been airing since April 3 and is set to end on June 26.
