The star of this story is Izuku Midoriya, who wants nothing more than to be a hero himself.
However, being part of the minority with no quirk, this dream may be impossible. That is until he has a chance encounter with the number one hero, All Might. Upon seeing Izuku’s determination, All Might has chosen him to become his successor. Thus begins Izuku’s journey into becoming a hero and wielding the power of One for All.
Currently, the series is in the Hideout Raid Arc wherein Katsuki has been kidnapped by villains and is now being rescued by pro heroes and his classmates alike.
The series is based on the adventure manga written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. Serialized since July 2014 in Weekly Shōnen Jump there are around 18 volumes so far.
