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+

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.

AndriasSch AndriasSch says...

The main protagonist lives in a fictional society where everybody receives some kind of ability in their teens, a superpower/an elemental magic power in the form of a quirk/grimoire with spells. He is a huge fan of the Number 1 Hero/Wizard King and wants to become this figure someday as he is set on becoming the best superhero/wizard, but sadly he never receives a quirk/grimoire, which makes others treat him as useless and being pitied by his friends. One day their childhood friend is attacked by a villain and the protagonist doesn't hesitate to jump and help him. In his journey to becoming the greatest hero/wizard he never stops training physically (it is shown how his muscles develop too,) and little by little starts being recognized by his childhood friend.The villains in this show have interesting background stories that help the spectator to empathize with their quest to take revenge on society.

Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun

Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun

Iruma Suzuki has always been eager to please, even at the cost of his well-being. Worst yet, he’s the son of two selfish parents who end up selling him to a demon. Thanks to their totally irresponsible actions, Iruma has found himself living in the Netherworld, where he must live and attend school as the grandson of an older demon. Luckily, his new, doting grandfather is there to help, but Iruma will have to figure out how to blend in with his demonic classmates or risk getting eaten. All he needs to do is subjugate rival classmates, summon familiars, and do other typical demon things while never revealing that he’s human… Piece of cake, right?

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!

similar protaonists with a fun comforting comedy 

you grow to love EVERYONE in both shows 

TeddyEster TeddyEster says...

It has the same vibe. The mcs are both underdogs that studies supernatural powers in a school for people with supernatural powers. And both deku and iruma have to keep a hugh secret.

Ratman

Ratman

Shuto Katsuragi is a superhero otaku. Only problem is, he's too short and always getting teased for his height... especially when he tries to emulate his favorite superhero! To make matters worse, Shuto suddenly gets abducted and tricked into participating in some rather sketchy and super-villainous experiments! What's a shrimp to do when his dreams come true in ways he never expected?

Drahken Drahken says...

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

TitanSdb TitanSdb says...

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.

AndriasSch AndriasSch says...

We main character is a boy who´s under average, and at some point he finds a really strong person willing to accept him as his student, leading the boy to become someone who surpasses everyone else.

SHY

SHY

Earth was on the brink of a third World War when super-powered individuals came forth from each country around the globe, ending the conflict and ushering in a new era of relative peace. Among those heroes, Japan is represented by a timid young girl known as “Shy.” She may spend more time worrying about her own shortcomings than she does battling villains, but she'll show the world that despite it all she still has the heart of a hero!

TheGreatMoof TheGreatMoof says...

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.

Balthasaurus Balthasaurus says...

Both are fun takes on the superhero genre, each with their own ideas and things to add. I found that they're both pretty entertaining reads.

Both revolve around a school with students that have powers. Both revolve around a MC who is the weakest but become OP.

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.

SunnyDani SunnyDani says...

Both main characters are young male protagonists that have a power bestowed upon them and have to find unique ways to use it and beat their opponents. Both have casts of characters where their powers are very weird or interesting. Honestly there are more similarities than differences, these two manga are very much alike.

Helenaviea Helenaviea says...

It's another story about people heroes and villains at war with each other in another world. There are multiple character parallels such as the similarities between Himiko Toga and Rachel Sinclare, and the characters in each have superpowers, or "gifts".
