My Hero Academia is one of the most popular modern anime series. The story takes place in a world where people have special powers called Quirks and thus leading to a world of Super heroes and Super villains.
The series has great animation, amazing fighting scenes and really great characterization. With 88 episodes and so many great fights and many emotional moments, it is difficult to breakdown the My Hero Academia Best moments to just 15.
Definition of term “Best” is highly subjective. But I followed a simple rule that the said moment should have had the highest emotional impact for me personally. It could be happiness, sadness, comedy or any emotion but should have had an memorable impact.
Unsurprisingly you may end up disagreeing with most of my options in the rankings of My Hero Academia’s Best Moments.
