Here are some of the facts about My Hero Academia that many people don’t know about.
If there is a fact or two that you already know of, then go beyond plus ultra! Let’s jump right into it:
1-The anime is a lot better than the manga
The anime was altered to be better than the manga and it was the right choice. If we take the manga into account then many of the side characters didn’t get as much attention as the anime gave them.
The anime gave many of the side characters more exposure, Asui’s internship was only a single panel in the manga but in the anime, they made an entire episode about it.
2-Failures before MHA
The creator of My hero academia Horikoshi had to go through many failures until he finally got the idea of My hero academia. His first series “Omasu” was published in the weekly shonen jump, it got canceled, it didn’t even make it a full year. His second series was Barrage and it was also canceled in as little as four months. After that, he went through depression until he decided to use one of his one-shots “Boku no hero” as the foundation for his new series.
3-Deku was originally an adult
The foundation of Boku no hero academia was a previously done one-shot by Horikoshi and in that one shot, Deku is an adult who sells hero merchandise and wants to be a hero himself. The instance where Midoriya rushed in to save Bakugo, there was something similar in the one-shot too. However, since the majority of the audience are teenagers he decided to go with a high school setting instead.
4-Connection to other shonen
The author has always been a hardcore naruto and one-piece fan. He submitted a fan art to the One Piece author Oda back in 2002 which was even featured in its 77th. There have also been instances where Oda encourages fans to read Boku no hero academia. Even Kishimoto praised Horikoshi in a past interview and even stated that My hero academia has taken the memento of Naruto ever since it ended.
Whoever made this did a great job!
