My Hero Academia season one is available to watch for free in its entirety for PC and Xbox One users for a limited time – here’s how you can get your hands on it.

My Hero Academia has seen wild success since its anime adaptation in 2016. It follows the story of Izuku Midoriya as he struggles with being born “quirkless” (without a power) in a world saturated by superheroes. Then, his savior comes along in the form of Number #1 hero All Might, and the budding pro’s dreams come true.

Season one of the show received phenomenal praise from reviewers, and boasts a 91% critic score and a 100% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the top anime series of all time. Now, Xbox and PC users can own and watch it for free for a limited time, thanks to the Microsoft Store.

How to get MHA season one for free

In order to claim the free season, users will need to head to the Microsoft Store. Once there, find the “Games & Entertainment” category, and then the “Movies & TV” section. You should see a banner at the top that reads “Anime Month weekend flash sale” with a picture of the Dragon Ball Z and MHA logos.

Upon clicking, it’ll take you to another section, in which you need to click “Weekend flash sale” and then either “My Hero Academia (Simuldub)” or “My Hero Academia (Original Japanese Version)” depending on your subbed or dubbed preference.

The price should have a giant slash through it and will instead be completely free to “buy,” saving you $16.99. The deal is only available for three days though, ending on February 3, so be swift if you’d like to grab the crazy deal.

Season one of Dragon Ball Z and Black Clover are also free until the same time, so also make sure to claim those too while you can if you feel like going on a super anime binge this weekend.

While not free, other shows and films are on sale, such as the MHA movie Two Heroes for $0.99 and Hunter x Hunter: Phantom Rouge for $4.99.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
