Midoriya has learned a few tricks from Gran Torino, but some things just have to be experienced to be understood. Even though he’s not ready, when the League of Villains attacks in the town of Hosu, Midoriya rushes to help Ida, who is engaged in a life-or-death struggle with Hero Killer Stain. Stain has some very particular ideas about heroes and their place in society—and he means to purge every hero he can find!
The League of Villains have attacked the town of Hosu and now Midoriya, Ida and Todoroki must take on the powerful Hero Killer, Stain.
Also, it’s time for the Practical Exam and people are paired up to take on an established hero. For Midoriya and Bakugo, they find out they must take on All Might.
Find out in Kohei Horikoshi’s “My Hero Academia” vol. 7!
What is “My Hero Academia” all about?
From Kohei Horikoshi, the creator of “Omagadoki Dobutsuen” and “Barrage”, comes his manga series “My Hero Academia” (Boku no Hero Academia).
The story revolves around Quirks (people who begin to manifest special abilities) and all of a sudden people in the world began to have many people who became superpowered individuals. Some who use their powers for good, some who use their powers for evil intentions.
Because the government is not equipped to deal with these superpowered thugs, a special group of heroic superpowered individuals came together to protect the people and keep the peace.
The series revolves around a boy named Izuku Midoriya, a boy born Quirkless and looked up to the world’s top hero, All Might.
One day, All Might received a near-fatal wound and now, he is losing his powers. But somehow Izuku began to inherit All Might’s Quirk.
The League of Villains are up to no good again and they have targeted the town of Hosu and Hero Killer Stain must be stopped. Can Midoriya, Ida and Todoroki defeat him?
Meanwhile, it’s time for the Practical Exam and in pairs, they must take on a hero. For Midoriya and Bakugo, they must take on All Might!
At first, I was wondering if “My Hero Academy” will be like another “X-Men” style storyline of humans vs. mutants and the world fearing mutantkind. In this case, humankind fearing Quirks.
What I enjoy about this series is the fact that our heroes are not exactly what you expect in terms of heroic characters. Whereas superpowered individuals in American comic books often showcase a character that is ripped, muscular, charismatic or gorgeous, “My Hero Academia” features regular characters and its main protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, is wide-eyed and looks far too innocent and unlikely to be a hero.
The seventh volume puts Midoriya and friends in one of the most challenging battles they have ever faced as they must take on the League of Villains Hero Killer Stain.
Meanwhile, the Academy is having its Practical Exam and must be paired to take on a Hero, but with Midoriya and Bakugo, they find out they must take on All Might.
As always, artwork is well-done and some panels looking more cartoony in nature, but for the overall character designs are appealing and fun to look at and the action sequences are very well-detailed.
For the most part, Korei Horikoshi’s “My Hero Academia” is fast-paced and enjoyable! The characters and their powers can be a bit way over-the-top but its unpredictability and enjoyable storyline, makes “My Hero Academia”, a manga series worth checking out! It’s the battle against Hero Killer Stain in vol. 7 of “My Hero Academia”!
