Manga Review: My Hero Academia Vol 21

Hey all, Dani here.

Hello and Happy Monday. Wow, it’s actually been a little bit since I had my last Manga Monday review up. It’s not because I ran out of posts, because there are still plenty of volumes I have read that I need to talk about. It really is because I just fell into this blogging funk, and then work was making me very sore and tired, and typing just made it worse. But then I felt awful and guilty for not having posts go up. I genuinely enjoy working on this blog, so missing posts when I know that I have enough content just makes me feel bad. I’m working on getting content up for the rest of the year, and I actually already scheduled a post for next year already, so I’m getting back into my groove.

All right, let’s jump into the review.

My Hero Academia Vol 21


Midoriya inherits the superpower of the world’s greatest hero, but greatness won’t come easy.

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?

Class 1-A’s joint battle training with Class B continues! Class 1-A get the first win in the best-of-five series of all-out Quirk battles, but after some feedback from the teachers, the students square off again for a second round, and real rivalries form.

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 stars

First off, holy smokes. Look at that cover! That is a really fiery image of Endeavor, which is pretty awesome. Plus, with the way Volume 20 ended, this cover honestly makes sense. We continue Endeavor’s big fight, while also seeing the continuation of Class 1-A’s joint battle training and Quirk battles.

I’m glad we’re getting more of the school stuff again, because for a little while it was as if we were mostly focused on everything else going on. But I like that we’re still seeing the Pro Heroes and how the fight against the myriad villains is still going.

I think this volume had a lot of action going on, and I think we’re starting to see even more of the 1-B class, which is really cool as well. This series has a whole lot of characters, so sometimes it is difficult to keep track of all of them, especially the ones who don’t have as prominent a role most of the time. So it’s nice to get a little more focus on some of the other students, because they have some pretty interesting Quirks.
