Everyone needs a hero! It’s Day 87 of the 100 Day Anime Challenge, and our question of the day is: Who is your favorite Anime Hero? I’ve always been a fan of heroes, from Marvel to DC, and recently there have started to be some good ones in Anime, too. I’ve got to admit, the material is thinner in the Anime world than in American Comics, but it’s growing, and that’s great. That being said, my favorite Anime Superhero is, without a doubt, All Might, from My Hero Academia.
Strong, fast, selfless, dependable. All Might has everything you’d ever want from a superhero, with more to spare. A powerful figure and a heart to match, All Might does what he does not for money or fame, but simply because he loves saving people. His genuine care for those around him and his powerful ideals make him amazing to watch, and a great hero, even if he is a bit of a dork.
Honestly, though, there were some great picks I could have gone with here, like Saitama, from One Punch Man, and Samurai Flamenco, from Samurai Flamenco; both of them for similar reasons. After all, it’s what’s inside that makes someone a true hero, am I right? Who are some of you guys’ favorite Anime Superheroes? Let me know down in the comments, and I hope to see you all again tomorrow!
