Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) - 3rd April
Many fans and I have been waiting for this series to get animated since reading the first chapter in 2014. When Bones studio was announced to animate the series, fans were overjoyed.

However, he dreams of one day becoming a Hero, despite being bullied by his classmates for not having a Quirk. After being the only one to try and save his childhood bully, Katsuki, from a Villain, All Might, the world's greatest Hero, bestows upon him his own quirk, "One For All".
