Synopsis

(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!

Three Episode Impression

The Sports Festival is clearly going to be the driving force of this second season, and so far, it is showing itself to be an exceedingly promising premise. Already we are being introduced to new characters and new rivalries are forming. The action is strong and the pacing is pretty similar to that of the first season, with a good mix of quiet and loud moments. All in all, this second season will likely be even better than the first season and is definitely one of the anime to be watching. To see how the actual villains will take advantage of this sports event is another point of interest, as it will definitely happen at some point. Hopefully, the creators decided to wait a little bit before throwing actual villains into the mix, because the hero rivalries between characters like Bakugou and Todoroki and Deku are powerful in and of themselves. They help set up the difficult reality that any hero must face, with respect to every aspect of life, as well as provide strong characterization. In many ways, having such rivalry helps complicate the characters and creates a bit more complex story that doesn’t draw the line clearly between good and evil.
