The My Hero Academia hype train has already started, and TOHO Animation’s official YouTube channel is helping it build some steam by releasing its very first PV! All aboard!
The video introduces us to Izuku’s dream of becoming a hero… even if he has no quirks (powers) to begin with. The video also shows us a preview of All Might, the legendary hero who will help Izuku realize his dream!
Daiki Yamashita (Yowamushi Pedal’s Sakamichi Onoda,) voices Izuku Midoriya, a normal boy without any quirks, who still dreams of becoming a hero despite that fact. Kenta Miyake (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders’ Mohammed Abdul) voices the hero, All Might.
The animation for this new anime will be produced by BONES, with Gundam Build Fighters director, Kenji Nagasaki, at the helm. He will be re-teaming with Gundam Build Fighters writer, Yousuke Kuroda, for this much-anticipated anime adaptation.
Based on Kouhei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) manga, it is set in a world where super powers are commonplace. However, it follows one boy without any powers (or quirks) at all, Izuku Midoriya, who despite not having any powers, he still dreams of becoming a hero.
