High School, to become a “Hero” who protects society and stands up against “Villains,” criminals who abuse their “Quirks”. Currently, the serialization of the story is approaching its climax.
The TV anime series based on it is produced by Studio BONES, which has produced numerous masterpieces, and has now aired its sixth season. In the sixth season, the “Paranormal Liberation War Arc” between Deku and other heroes and their enemies; villains, such as Shigaraki Tomura, and the “Dark Hero Arc”, which strongly depicts the bond between Deku, who is wounded and frustrated but determined to fight alone, and his classmates who try to bring him back, unfold.
