1. Boku no Hero Academia 2nd Season (My Hero Academia 2nd Season) 2nd Cours

  • Genres: Action, Adventure, Superpowers, Comedy
  • Air Date: March 25, 2017

(The 2nd season of Boku no Hero Academia.)
It all started with the news of the birth of a 'luminescent baby' in Keikei City, China. Since then, 'Paranormalities' have been discovered all over the world, but their cause still remains unclear. Now, we have entered the superhuman age, where eighty percent of the world’s total population are born with some kind of idiosyncrasy, known as a Quirk. While criminals and villains who use their supernatural powers for evil are steadily on the rise, there is also a society of heroes who use the very same Quirks to stand against and save people from villains and disasters.

The fictional heroes that everyone idolised have become a reality. It’s in this kind of world that Izuku Midoriya (known as Deku by his friends) hopes to become a hero and sets out to enroll in Yuuei, a Hero Academy known for producing countless famous heroes. However, it just so happens that Deku is one of the twenty percent of the population that is born without any powers - a 'Quirkless' loser.

One day, Deku meets his very own hero rolemodel, and the fate of his future changes dramatically. Friends, teachers, rivals, and enemies - whilst facing many different characters and challenges, Deku starts his journey to become the best hero he can be.

A new story is about to begin with this new generation of hot-blooded heroes!
