While the hero premise of One-Punch Man takes a different route, it's a smashing tale regardless. If you're up for a no holds barred, tale of villainy and valor, My Hero Academia and One-Punch Man fit the bill.

Both are super hero concept.In boku no hero academia Midoriya(protoganist) has no quirk (super power) and borrow super power from No 1 hero and tains to contol and use them effectively.

In One punch man as it name iplies saitama (protoganist) train and work hard result in any villian can be destroyed by one punch.

This manga is top quality and I read it around the same time that I read one punch man and I thought they went well together and I would say it is appropriate for 10+

Both of these series feature a world where superpowered heroes are the norm. The protagonist in each wants desperately to become a hero to be like his idol, but has no abilities. The protagonists do soon get abilities through unconventional methods and go from being the weakest to being among the strongest. Each story also has the protagonist's new powers have a special relationship to their idols.

Chairrypie Chairrypie says...

Both involve superheroes with the mc being seen as weak in the beginning. And they are both given a power so that they could match up to the others. In boku no hero academia, he's given a superpower so he can train to be a hero, while in ratman, he's given a suit that gives him powers so that he becomes a supervillain

Both Hitman Reborn and Boku no hero academia are a shounen about a boy who starts with nothing and receives great power. If you loved the fact that there were many characters to be loved in Hitman Reborn you'd love how many characters you'll be able to love in boku no hero academia.

Though the genres are entirely different, both feature similar protagonists, and similarly shadowy enemy organizations.

Yakoz Yakoz says...

Both main characters start from being a zero and work to become a hero, with a little extra help from third parts. BnHA has superheroes, BC has sorcerers. Have fun with WSJ action.

The character development and personalities of the MC are similar. Although My Hero Acadamia is more on heroes and fantasy with the Class 1-A.  Mairimashita Iruma-kun is more on fun and adventure with the Misfit Class!

High schoolers with powers, who get involved in dangerous missions. Both series depict their "magical" school life. The MCs are both underdogs who get stronger. Flow is kind of like a fantasy version of My Hero Academia.

I got pretty burned out by the recent Liberation Army Arc, to the point where the big reveal after big reveal suffocating the drama and pacing of the story caused me to drop the My Hero Aca manga completely. I loved the early chapters, think the first season of the anime is a perfect 5 star masterpiece. But after that arc? No. Enter Shy, another unique take on the superhero story that hits a lot of the same emotional character beats as the better early MHA chapters. If you've gotten burned out on MHA's latest chapters like I have, maybe Shy will be more what you're looking for.
