Boku No Hero Academia (My Hero Academia in English) is a very popular anime series that I just finished watching. Right now, there are 113 episodes of Boku No Hero Academia that have been released over the course of 5 seasons, with the latest season being released in 2021. The series is still ongoing, although I am not sure when season 6 is going to come out.
After talking with some people, I was surprised to learn that not everyone has very high praise for Boku No Hero Academia; while most people who have watched it enjoy it, there are many people who think it is overrated and not deserving of being considered a top anime. Personally, I really enjoyed watching Boku No Hero Academia and would consider it among my favorite anime. While I wouldn’t put it on the level of Hunter x Hunter and Attack on Titan, I would put it in a tier right below them.
To me, Boku No Hero Academia is similar to Hunter x Hunter, and I think that if you liked one you will like the other. The characters are relatively similar, and I thought the way the story develops is alike as well. The main difference between Hunter x Hunter and Boku No Hero Academia is that the support characters are better developed in Hunter x Hunter, including villains. Hunter x Hunter has some incredible support characters such as Hisoka, Kurapika, as well as my personal favorite villains in the Phantom Troupe. Boku No Hero Academia also has some good side characters, but many of them are relatively weak, throwaway characters; also, I don’t think the villains in Boku No Hero Academia are anywhere near Hunter x Hunter.
With that being said, Boku No Hero Academia does have a core of about 5 characters who I love and think make for a great combo. I enjoyed the story and think that it stays at a high level for the course of the five seasons (and beyond hopefully). If you are looking for a new anime to watch and are willing to put some time into it, Boku No Hero Academia could be a deserving choice!
