My Hero Academia’s great animation has been lauded in almost every one of IGN’s episode reviews. The superhero show’s fights are explosive on multiple levels, and you’d have a hard time finding a scene that isn’t done well. Yoshihiko Umakoshi, My Hero Academia’s chief animation director, told IGN through a translator at Anime Expo 2017 just how studio Bones goes about achieving the show’s great animation.
In addition to having an experienced team, Umakoshi attributes the studio’s success with the animation quality to the staff’s interest in My Hero Academia. He said a lot of the staff are fans of the original manga, and their passion keeps it going; even Umakoshi has a favorite character.
