14 Anime Shows My Hero Academia Fans Will Love
Fire Force
"Fire Force" follows a group of firefighters with supernatural pyrokinetic powers who fight creatures called infernals. However, they soon discover a grand conspiracy.
Protagonist Kusakabe shares much in common with Midoriya from "My Hero Academia" as both are underdogs. Additionally, both series feature epic fights between heroes and villains.
While the sports anime "Haikyu!!" may seem completely different from "My Hero," the series has plenty of heart and a focus on teamwork and friendship.
Both series have a hero who overcomes their physical setbacks in pursuit of their goals. "Haikyu!!" may not be as high-stakes, but it has the same amount of emotional investment.
Demon Slayer
"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" follows Tanjiro as he trains and joins an eclectic group of demon hunters to avenge his family.
Like Midoriya, Tanjiro will stop at nothing to achieve his goal and save as many people as possible. The series is filled with gorgeous animation that brings the battles to life.
Jujutsu Kaisen
After becoming possessed by a demon, Yuji Itadori is taken to the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to train to be a jujutsu to help kill the creature inside him.
"Jujutsu Kaisen" is a much darker take on the heroes-in-training anime genre, but it still captures the elements, such as engaging spectacles, that make "My Hero" so endearing.
Little Witch
Like "My Hero," "Little Witch Academia" revolves around a young protagonist without powers who aspires to help the world however they can.
"Little Witch" isn't just about actions, as the larger stakes are often balanced out by a more grounded look at life inside of the school.
