Koichi lives in a world where most of the population has a quirk, whether that quirk be useful or strange. He has a slide and glide quirk that doesn’t and isn’t impressive at all. When Knuckleduster arrives and tells Koichi that they must work together to fight as vigilantes, he doesn’t believe in the old man. Both save Pop Step from these villains who prove to be super powerful suddenly. Both investigate this weird occurrences and concluded that since no one is noticing these incidences that they must take matters into their own hands.
I read this because my boyfriend was so fascinated by the plot. I disagree. This feels very much like the main series but without hero fighting but just being vigilantes. I only liked one character, but she wasn’t the focus of the manga. This manga wasn’t my favorite and I prefer the other manga My Hero Academia over this one. There wasn’t much substance to the plot and felt more of a crime fighting rather than wholesome as My Hero Academia was.
