Lauded as one of the series to become the “next Naruto,” Kōhei Horikoshi’s Boku No Hero Academia (lit. My Hero Academia) has promised great potential, just like it’s characters loosely based on American Super Comic tropes. In fact, one of the more striking factors of this endearing manga (and soon to be anime) is how the art style combines both manga techniques with American comic art styles; the hero killer arc definitely had a nice homage to McFarlane’s depiction of a crazed villian, almost Venom-esque in demented grin.
For those unfamiliar with Boku No Hero Academia, the story follows Izuku Midoriya, a boy living in a world where superpowers manifest as “quirks” – as he has none, his enthusiasm to be a hero and selfless deeds eventually catches the eye of the world’s most powerful hero All Might; Midoriya inherits this power and begins a new life in a school for young heroes, but with this comes great responsibility, especially with an oncoming onslaught of villains set to destroy everything he stands for. For anyone who’s been following this series, it’s easy to understand why such popularity exists; in Japan, initial volumes of the tankōbon sold out immediately on release.
With such potential, it’s no surprised then that Bandai Namco has something in the works – if it’s in Shonen and it’s popular, it’s almost expected at this stage. Having just released the first trailer for a project named “Boku No Hero Academia: Battle For All” for the 3DS, we can now see that this title is apt in it’s direction – it’s a fighting game with several popular characters revealed as playable! Stay tuned for more updates as Bandai Namco releases more news for this game!
