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!

30 men and women come together to go on a bus tour. However, this isn’t any ordinary bus tour. This bus tour is headed to a mysterious, unconfirmed village named Nanakimura. Purportedly, Nanakimura, if found, is a utopia and a place that is unlike anywhere else in the world. Well… at least that is what the rumors say.
Of these 30, some have lost faith in the current world, some want to erase themselves from their tedious existences, and finally, some just want to start their lives over again. So, they take their expectations in one hand and their distressed hearts in the other with them deep into the mountains in search of Nanakimura. However, when they arrive, they are greeted with a village, but at the same time, it’s not a village. It’s an area that stinks of abandonment and barely any traces of human life.

What is this reality that has appeared in Nanakimura that the 30 people have stumbled upon??

Atsushi Nakajima has nowhere to go. On the verge of starving, he has just been kicked out of the orphanage he was living in. He meets two very different and interesting men. The first is attempting to commit suicide by drowning himself. He is Osamu Dazai. The other appears to be neurotically flipping through a notebook while wearing glasses. He is Doppo Kunikida. They are part of a rumored “superpower detective agency” that deals with crimes and events that the normal police and army cannot handle. They are on the hunt for a human eating tiger that is disturbing the public and Atsushi just also requests to travel with them. Taking place in the city Yokohama, these men are those who have taken on the name of “bungo,” or literary master, and have embraced it. Each has their own different power that is revealed during combat. The curtains are now rising on these very strange “literary masters” who are about to have their own battle right now!
