Izuku Midoriya lives in a world of quirks(superpowers) and dreams of becoming a pro hero. Unfortunately, he is born quirkless, meaning that he doesn’t have superpowers. But when an unlikely encounter with All Might (the world’s #1 hero) leads him to become his successor by eating All Might’s hair. He now has the same powers as All Might. My Hero Academia tells the stories of Izuku’s own experiences and that of his classmates. They take us on an adventure as we learn about what it takes to become a pro hero.

Now Itadori trains at the Jujutsu Academy, a school dedicated to destroying curses. 

The Promised Neverland is about an Orphanage on top of Grace field, where the children are tested multiple times a day. Often, a child is adopted and is allowed to leave the field walls. However, the child will not meet a happy ending. When Emma and Norman find Conny, a little girl who was recently adopted, half-eaten inside a container, they learn the truth. The kids were being raised to be fed to demons. The children would take daily tests to make sure that their brains were healthy and developed because that is what the demons ate.
