Manga Review: My Hero Academia, Volume 6, by Kohei Horikoshi

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Shonen Jump (VIZ Media)
Release Date: November 2016

Volume: 1. 5. 7.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Izuku Midoriya is the inheritor of the superpower of the world’s greatest hero, but the mantle of greatness won’t come easy, and even superheroes have to go to school!

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

In the aftermath of the sports festival, the class 1-A students begin their internships. Midoriya goes to study under Gran Torino, who was once All Might’s mentor. Gran Torino appears to be a washed-up nutjob, but the old hero still has more moves than a football team, and Midoriya has a lot to learn! Elsewhere, the League of Villains enacts another sinister plot and unleashes a terrifying new enemy!


I've decided to catch up with this series. It's rather good, and I don't want to skip volumes.
The competition is over, and now they all get to do some real work experience. They get to either choose from interested mentors or companies or internships. Midoriya gets All Might's first mentor, who is an old man, and he's pushing Midoriya in just the right way.
I'm hoping we get to see what some of the others are doing, like Uraraka. I like her, and I want to see what the others are experiencing and learning. Aside from Midoriya, we mostly get to see what Ida is doing, because he's on the hunt for the Hero Killer, who attacked his older brother.
I like seeing them get more mature, and perfecting their skills. I like seeing how hard Midoriya is working, too, learning about himself and getting better. I also like seeing how they work together, too, like how Midoriya calls Todoroki for help and he shows up so quickly.
I'm looking forward to the next one.
