After successfully passing his Provisional Hero License exam, Izuku “Deku” Midoriya seeks out an extracurricular internship with a professional hero agency. At the recommendation of his mentor All Might, Midoriya lands a position under All Might’s former sidekick, Sir Nighteye, now a famous hero in his own right.
