“My Hero Academia”

Bit of a different book this time around! A few weeks ago my daughter asked me to take her shopping. We went to Short Pump Town Center, and we ended up at the big Barnes and Noble. She wanted to buy a manga series, “My Hero Academia”, that kids had talked about at school. She ended up reading through the first two books pretty quickly. The next week 2nd and Charles had a sale on Manga, so I told her we’d go buy the rest of the series. (I didn’t know there were 25 books…) we hit up both the Midlothian and Richmond stores, and we got all the books. I love that she’s reading so much, so I decided to check out the books, too, so I could talk to her about it. I read comics, so it took some training to figure out the reading pattern for Manga. I finished the first book today, and I can see why she’s drawn to the series. It’s about a middle school kid who goes to a new high school for heroes, except he really doesn’t have a super power, which they call quirks. Well, he kind of does, but I don’t want to spoil it. Overall, the first book presented a neat story, so I am curious to see what happens. Turns out there’s an animated series as well, so I may end up checking that out, too.
