This RP will be based on My Hero Academia, but will be influenced by other series such as One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100. Despite drawing inspiration from the shonen genre, I plan to include some sort of realism in the story along with darker and more serious themes. A general plot will be present, but will be used more as a guide than something we'll be strictly adhering to.
Superpowers are still relatively new to mankind. First discovered for over a century ago, it was news of a baby that gave off a luminescent glow right after it was born. Since then, strange abilities have been sprouting up across the world. Time passed without the cause being identified; scientists have struggled to find out the cause behind this, lamenting it to evolution, however there is no solid evidence to what brought about this new super gene.
Naturally, humans were scared. They were met with newfound powers, dangerous and abnormal. For much of the first few decades, supers received brutal discrimination and punishment. Many were forced into camps and prisons and some were stolen away for experimenting. But as the numbers increased and the supers became more knowledgeable of their own abilities, they banded together and rose against authoritative figures. As history shows, with time and persistence, compassion begins to grow. The supers collaborated with humans, working side by side to protect civilization and prove that supers aren't all power-hungry monsters. There are a handful of people that have made a stand for the rights of supers and influenced the world to follow in their ideals who led the people with their brilliant and passionate words, opening the door to a brighter future for both humans and supers. Before we knew it, the supernatural became natural, and dreams had become reality.
| PREMISE |
We now live in a superhuman society with majority of the world's population possessing some kind of special trait. In this world swirling with chaos, the profession that everyone once dreamed about and admired came into the limelight. That profession is...still not quite yours. You are not a professional hero, the symbols of hope and peace for the entire world. You are a student, not at one of the top academies in the entire country, but in a newly established institution that aims to cater to those who are deemed less fortunate in one way or another. Those who failed to pass the grueling entrance examinations of other institutions, lacked financial aid and resources, or individuals who were not blessed with amazing quirks, none of those hold any bearing. No matter your background or upbringing, you’ll always have a place here.
Welcome to Kosei Academy! This year will certainly be an interesting one. Please, enjoy it to its fullest.
| INTRODUCTION |
The story takes place 50 years from the original series and you'll be playing as the pioneer batch of the newly established Kosei Academy. The school itself was founded by the hero, Kouta Izumi. You may wonder, why would you enroll to such a young school? Well, aside from the high quality of education, top-class training they promise, and various scholarships, they only require a single thing from their applicants; a strong sense of heroism.
Only Anime Face Claims.
Include Height and Weight.
Name: For the format, let's do Surname then Given Name.
Gender: You tell us, right?
Age: Students for this school year are somewhere between 13 to 16.
Personality:What are you like? Anything in particular that we need to know?
Background:Give us a summary of your life up until now along with the reason you were enrolled at Kosei Academy.
Quirk:I'm hoping for some sort of uniformity for the Quirks to avoid any type of issue. I apologize for this, but I'd like all Quirks to be sent to me via PM so that we can discuss it before we make it official. I know its sort of a hassle, but its for the RP, and technically, all of us. Thank you for your cooperation.
Talents and Skills:I'm certain that you have other skills. A sport perhaps? Maybe you can take a punch really well? Or perhaps you enjoy baking or dog grooming? Please don't hesitate to share.
- Rules: I'm assuming that were all adults here, or at least are mature enough, to know what's acceptable when it comes to role-playing. Just respect the site's general rules, don't forget to communicate with each other if uncertainties arise, and avoid any form of toxicity.
- Expectations: In terms of writing, I'm hoping for posts that at least follow the basics of grammar and spelling. No strict word count is expected, we're going for quality over quantity, but no one liners. Avoid posts that stagnate the story and be proactive when needed.
- Scheduling: No exact level of pacing will be indicated due to how erratic life can get. However, given the right crowd, the story can progress quite rapidly. In the event such a thing occurs and you aren't able to keep up, please inform the rest of the participants. Just update us on your schedule if issues arise, so that we'll be aware and informed.
- Others: My goal here is for everyone to enjoy themselves. If you're not, please let me know what's wrong. I'm open-minded and very flexible. So don't hesitate to speak up.
| THE ACADEMY |
What makes Kosei different from other academies is the unique curriculum they provide their students with. Although questioned by many, general education has been omitted from the school's teaching syllabus. However, it remains optional for students to take up if they prefer to do so; staff and facilities for such learning would always be available.
Another decision made by the administration that has caused some controversy, is what the media referred to as the premature exposure of the students to actual field training and early internship with the agencies affiliated to the academy.
Focus is redirected towards the heroics course while supporting whatever talents the students excel in. Instead of creating well-rounded heroes and heroines, through the promotion of a competitive environment, Kosei aims to produce what could accurately be described as specialists.
The institute itself is located on an artificial island connected by a large bridge to Musutafa Port. It has a great number of facilities that accommodates each and every students' needs, fostering the growth in their individual strengths. The campus itself isn’t that massive as there are strict limitations to how many students can attend the school. For now, only a total of fifty students may attend the academy. Although it could be said that only one building houses the entire student population and its staff, the building itself is very large and can be divided up into different areas in an octagonal shape.
