Haikyuu!! is a light-hearted sports manga. This volleyball manga has inspired young people all over the world to start playing volleyball. What I absolutely love about Haikyuu is that this manga seems real. It is not too intense like other sports anime but at the same time, is very engaging. Let us take a look at the plot of this masterpiece.
In this manga, we follow the story of Hinata. small-statured Hinata loves volleyball and finally manages to form a team in his last year of junior high school. His team enters in a volleyball tournament. However, his team is utterly defeated in their very first game against the school Kitagawa Daiichi, led by the genius, Tobio Kageyama.
Hinata enrolls in Karasuno High School seeking to take revenge against Kageyama, but his plans are ruined when he opens the gymnasium door to find Kageyama as one of his teammates.
7. Attack on Titan:
Attack on Titan is my all-time favorite manga and also the number 2 most popular manga in the entire world. This manga definitely deserves all the praise it gets. Attack on Titan is a very beautifully drawn action manga. This manga will always be an 11 out of 10 in my book. Let us take a look at the plot of this manga.
Hundreds of years ago, horrifying creatures that resembled humans appeared. These mindless, towering giants, called “titans”, proved to be an existential threat as they preyed on whatever humans they could find. The few remaining humans were forced to barricade themselves within large walls. (Check: Attack on Titan: 10 Facts You Didn’t Know)
In the present day, life within the walls has finally found peace, since the residents have not dealt with titans for many years. Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert are three young children who dream of one day going out into the world outside the walls.
6. My Hero Academia:
My Hero Academia is a shounen master-piece. This shounen manga is neglected by some people as they think that it is just another Naruto or One Piece clone, but they are all wrong! My Hero Academia is the best example of a modern shounen, and it is next in line to take the spotlight after, the previous generation shounen. The characters are all very unique in both, personality and design. Let us take a look at the plot of this manga.
We follow the story of Izuku Midoriya. Midoriya lives in a world where 80% of the population is born having some kind of quirk (super-power). There exist a group of people called heroes, who use their quirks to defeat villains. Ever since he was a kid, Midoriya has always dreamt of becoming like his number one hero, All might. Unfortunately, one day, a 4-year-old Midoriya got his dream shattered! He found out that he belongs to the 20% population who are born without a quirk.
