My Hero Academia (Hepburn: Boku no Hiro Akademia) is a Japanese superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, a boy born without superpowers in a world where they have become commonplace, but who still dreams of becoming a superhero himself. He is scouted by All Might, Japan's greatest hero, who chooses Midoriya as his successor after recognizing his potential, and helps to enroll him in a prestigious high school for superheroes in training.

The series has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014, with its chapters additionally collected into 34 tankobon volumes as of May 2022. The series has also inspired numerous spin-off manga, such as My Hero Academia: Smash!!, My Hero Academia: Vigilantes and My Hero Academia: Team-Up Missions, as well as an anime television series by Bones.

It has also released three animated films, titled My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, and My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission respectively. There are plans for a live-action film by Legendary Entertainment.

In North America, the manga series has been licensed by Viz Media, who published the first volume on August 4, 2015. The anime series has been licensed for streaming services, the home and broadcast release, and the merchandise rights by Funimation.
