But the novelty also conquered Japan, and not by accident Manga like My Hero Academia were born.

Precisely out of a desire to recreate the world of superheroes, Kohei Horikoshi drew the story of Izuku Midoriya and his companions. It's no coincidence that My Hero Academia has been very successful in the United States for years, sometimes even surpassing the releases of the most famous comics dedicated to Spider-Man and other superheroes. Precisely because it has involved and captivated superhero fans from all over the world, the anime portal! souls! has decided to propose a survey among its users.

The question was which are the most popular anime heroes. Ranking in the top positions is obviously dominated by My Hero Academia, which has outperformed the competition from One-Punch Man and other animes of the same genre. All Might is in first place in the surveyimmediately followed by the protagonist of My Hero Academia, Izuku Midoriya.

Down below instead comes the boisterous Katsuki Bakugo at number seven, then Shoto Todoroki at number eleven, and finally Professor Eraserhead at number seventeen. This is a confirmation that superhero anime works great, but My Hero Academia more than the othershaving started this subgenre it is now being revived in various sauces in Japan, as does the more specialized Ranger Reject.
