Staff Reviews

An offshoot of the main series MY HERO ACADEMIA, VIGILANTES focuses less on registered super heroes/villains and focuses well, on vigilantes; individuals with/without Quirks (super-powers) who go out and try to save the world in their own way.

The series is set 7 years prior to MHA, and does fun nods to the more popular characters in the series, but the story is set on a young man named Koichi is just trying to enjoy his early 20s, but learns he has a quirk; he becomes a nightly helpful vigilante, nothing too serious. 

Eventually, he teams up with two other vigilantes; with the power of friendship, a new drug on the streets being pushed by a strange villain, this origin story takes off with humor and a grit that the main series doesn't show until later in the series.

Not everyone needs a license to fight for justice!

In a superpowered society, there is nothing ordinary about evil anymore. Heroes, trained and licensed to protect and defend the public against supervillains, stand above all the rest. Not everyone can be a hero, however, and there are those who would use their powers to serve the people without legal sanction. But do they fight for justice in the shadows, or for reasons known only to themselves? Whatever they fight for, they are called...vigilantes.

Koichi Haimawari couldn’t make the cut to become an official hero, so he uses his modest Quirk to do good deeds in his spare time. Then one day a fateful encounter with some local thugs leads him to team up with two other unlikely heroes. None of them really know what they’re doing, but they’ve got the courage—or foolishness—to try. But they soon discover fighting evil takes more than just being brave…
