Anime series can be very expensive, so the latest anime sale on the Microsoft Store is a great opportunity for people who want to save some money. However, if you have an Xbox One or PC, there is a small handful of series you don’t have to pay any money for. The first seasons of My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball Super, and Black Clover are available to claim for free and keep forever. However, you should claim them soon, as the first seasons of My Hero Academia and Black Clover are only available for free until February 3, while Dragon Ball Super Season 1 is free through February 6.
To claim your free seasons, all you have to do is sign in to your Microsoft account, go to each series’ individual store page, select the “HD” option, and click “Buy series.” It’ll link the show to your account, and you won’t be charged. Both the original Japanese and English versions of each season are available for free. If you want both, be sure to visit the pages for both to claim them.
My Hero Academia follows the rise of Midoriya, a boy who wants to be a superhero but doesn’t have a superpower–or “quirk” as they’re called in the show. Midoriya meets his favourite hero, All-Might, who, after seeing how much heart and bravery Midoriya has despite his lack of power, vows to help the youngster become the hero he always wanted to be.
Dragon Ball Super is the official sequel to Dragon Ball Z. It follows Goku and Vegeta on another quest to become more powerful. They meet Lord Beerus, the God of Destruction, as he searches for the legendary Super Saiyan God in the hopes that he’ll be able to witness its immense power. If you love Dragon Ball Z–and weren’t crazy about Dragon Ball GT–then I definitely recommend giving Dragon Ball Super a go.
Black Clover is set in a world where people are able to use magic. This applies to everyone except protagonist Asta, who trains hard in the hopes of gaining the ability to wield magic and become the next Wizard King.
