When I think about anime it makes me think about why we love anime in the first place and it just takes me back to this video, please watch to continue this
This story obviously follows the young 14-year old boy Izuku Midoriya that doesn’t possess a quirk in a society that evolves around 80% of the earth’s population having one. With most people possessing a quirk, heroes are needed to stop bad people hurting others with their abilities. After nearly being killed by a villan, he is saved by the number one hero, also named ‘The Symbol of peace’ All Might.
All might saves Midoriya, and he asks the number one hero even though he didn’t have a quirk, could he still be a hero, All might says no and shatters his heart, on the way home the same villan attacks his friend and even though powerless Izuku try to save his friend, his bravery is the deciding factor for All Might who tells him that his quick can be passed on to others after intense training to allow him to possess this power Midoriya enrols at UA Highschool to become the next symbol of peace.
