What year is mha set in?
MHA was set between 2300 and 2320. The setting of My Hero Academia is similar to reality, except that superpowered abilities are commonplace, ever since the “glowing infant” was born a few generations back in China. Our society is now built around these meta-abilities, known as Quirks; however, it’s not known for how long it’s been this way.
In certain ways, it’s not like the world had changed significantly from when My Hero Academia launched in 2010. Some fragments from My Hero Academia’s story suggest that Izuku Midoriya’s story takes place a few decades or 100 years from now. Perhaps that’s what the show is about; heroes will be there to help us regardless of how long passes by.
Is MHA set in 2030?
Suppose we were to suppose that the Quirk existed for the full number of years estimated. If we assume that the Quirk “starts” in 2020, the first person to hold One for All came to pass around 10 years later in 2030 and then passed the torch that same year. In that case, we can conclude that the century of MHA is happening between 2300 and 2320.
What year is the year that Boku no Hero Academia takes place? How is it relevant?
Certain elements in My Hero Academia suggest that the story is set several generations into the future, possibly around the beginning of the 2100s or later. Robots of enormous size are ubiquitous in this country, like the ones used to teach U.A. candidates. None student is unsure of what robots are capable of in the present day. Some characters can use the technology of holograms. A manga story showed how the whole U.A. campus is constructed on a set of moveable blocks. This amazing technological feat would be impossible to achieve in the 2020s early. These technological marvels mostly help propel the plot smoothly; however, they are integral in My Hero Academia. My Hero Academia universe hints at a future location.
There’s the year the baby with glowing eyes was born. There’s no way to know the year. Still, technology isn’t all that sophisticated as the one we have today. Since we’re informed that it was stopped due to quirks, we can confirm that it was the mid-to-late 21st century. There’s also the fact that we see snowfall in Japan as a nation near the equator that is being hit by the warmer wind coming from oceans. Because dealing with quirks took the world’s attention away from other concerns like climate change, we must assume the world has enough time to tackle the huge carbon footprint. That, with our current circumstances, will likely take 20 or more years to manage. There’s the incredibly trashed beach that All Might had Izuku clean up. Still, garbage and greenhouse gases are two distinct issues. Given the current situation, I believe it’s easy to tell which the world ranked first. In addition, there is plenty of it that could be floating around in the ocean for a long time. In all, I believe that the baby with glowing eyes was born sometime around 2050.
There’s also the initial backlash, and then it’s the first debut of All for One. It could take between five and 10 years to respond to the first appearance of quirks completely. All for One appeared pretty in the beginning. We’ll call it All for One appeared about 10 years after the glowing baby was born, in 2060.
For how long has this quirk-based society existed. The doctor has specifically stated that Izuku is a member of the 4th generation. In the world of developed countries, parents are more likely to have children near middle age. I believe it’s safe to assume that every generation ranges from thirty to forty years old (we’ll round it up to thirty-five years on average). Should Izuku be born in the early years of his generation, we could estimate it was about 100 years following the saga of All for One and his brother, which would put us at 2170 years when Izuku was born. That would be consistent in conjunction with All for One has been at the helm for more than 100 years.
Another reason that you might think that it’s not going to be worth a look is there is a possibility that Izuku has been named the 9th owner for One for All, something we’ve previously stated occurred in 2060. Some make a connection between the reality it was Toshinori along with Izuku both got One for All before the age of 15, and this, in turn, was the case for all. However, they are distinct cases because both are unquestionably spoiled children in a society of superpowers looking to attend an elite school for heroes, requiring a certain quirk. The majority of bearers were probably older when they received it due to their previous having been heroes and the Quirk they had already as a great mix with something so impressive. They probably were given it in later years and thus reducing the time required to utilize it. Particularly, The brother who was All for One did not keep it long enough since he realized from the beginning that he would have to pass the Quirk onto the next generation.
Given that All Might be having probably had the Quirk for about 15 years before the time Izuku became a teenager, the first user likely to hold it for between ten and fifteen years puts the average duration of the Quirk at around fifteen years for all the other users. However, some may have passed it off in a hurry due to injuries or a desire to do something that could cause them to be killed. So I think it’s safe to think that the median time to retain in One For All is twenty or around twenty years in this period.
With all that and Izuku being fourteen when he first appeared and fifteen at present in the anime and 16 at the present stage of the manga, I consider it is likely that My Hero Academia takes place at the beginning of the 23rd century.
