Without hesitation, Megan crowned My Hero Academia as her clear favourite. She admitted the decision was tough, stating, “They’re all good; they’re all my favourites,” reflecting the internal struggle every anime enthusiast faces when choosing a beloved series.
For those eager to dive into the My Hero Academia universe, Megan recommends exploring both the manga and anime.
