The series premiered on MBS and other Japan News Network stations in Japan on April 3, 2016.[2][3] After the first season, the series began airing on NTV and YTV on March 25, 2017.

In March 2016, Funimation Entertainment announced they had licensed the series for streaming services, home and broadcast release. The English dub of the first 3 seasons premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami block from May 5, 2018[1] to August 17, 2019.

On an Earth-like world where people with superpowers known as "Quirks" are the norm, Izuku Midoriya is a regular middle school student who has dreams of one day becoming a Hero despite being bullied by his classmates for not having a Quirk. After being the only one to try and save his childhood bully Katsuki from a Villain, the world's greatest Hero All Might bestows upon him his own quirk "One For All". The story follows Izuku's entrance into U.A. High School, a school that cultivates the next generation of Super Heroes.


Izuku Midoriya — Nicknamed Deku, he is a timid but kind boy who is extremely knowledgeable about heroes and dreams to be one himself like his idol, All Might, despite lacking a Quirk due to the trait required to have one being too diluted to be passed on in his family. However, when he steps up to save his childhood acquaintance Katsuki from an evil villain, All Might is inspired by his strength of spirit, and bestows upon him his Quirk "One For All", a Quirk that becomes more powerful the more people it is given to, and results in the user being able to call upon great physical strength. Izuku must hide the nature of his Quirk and his connection to All Might to protect the secret of One For All, which many would want to steal. He also utilizes a keen sense of strategy and an instinctive desire to save people.
