If you weren’t a fan of “Death Note” on Netflix, you definitely won’t like this news. Well, Netflix has acquired the rights to make a live action movie based on the hit manga ‘My Hero Academia’.

Big Hit – “My Hero Academia”

My Hero Academia is a shounen manga by Kōhei Horikoshi. The first issues were published in 2014. The title quickly gained immense popularity and regularly broke sales records. The manga is still being published. In Poland, it appeared under the title “My Hero Academia – Academia heroes”.

The protagonist of the series is Izuku Midoriya. The boy lives in a world where almost everyone has supernatural abilities. However, he himself is deprived of them. Izuku still dreams of becoming a superhero. Meeting the greatest hero in the world will allow him to fulfill his dream and go to the school of superheroes.

The massive popularity of the series meant that in 2016 we got an animated series. Two years later, the first full-length cartoon appeared in cinemas. So far, three films have been made, the latest of which – “Boku no Hero Academia the Movie: World Heroes’ Mission” – turned out to be one of the biggest box office successes in Japan in 2021.
