'My Hero Academia' Manga Goes On A One-Week Hiatus For Author's Health Recovery
The official Twitter account for the Weekly Shonen Jump announced on Friday that the "My Hero Academia" manga would go on a one-week break on its upcoming 18th issue due to the author, Kohei Horikoshi, not feeling well.
The latest chapter is supposed to be released on Monday. The new chapter will instead be available on the 19th issue to be released in Japan on April 12.
Weekly Shonen Jump magazine's 16th issue this year announced that "My Hero Academia" is now approaching its final act to begin on Chapter 306. The announcement had the chapter titled "The Final Act Begins."
My Hero Academia or Boku No Hero Academia debuted in the Weekly Shonen Jump in 2014. The manga tells an ordinary boy named Izuku Midoriya or Deku who was born "quirkless" or someone who does not hold any special abilities. However, this changed when Deku caught the hero All Might's attention, who is also his idol. All Might saw Deku's determination and his sense of his justice; he gave him the quirk "One For All." In order to train and use his quirk properly, he enrolls in U.A. High School, where he meets other kids like himself, each with different quicks.
The first episode of "My Hero Academia" Season 5 was welcomed with a new teaser video revealing the full title of the 3rd upcoming anime film "My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes' Mission". The movie is scheduled to premiere in Japan on August 6. The franchise also had two animated movies: "My Hero Academia: Two Heroes" and "My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising." Premiered in July 2018 and December 2019, respectively.
The "My Hero Academia" manga is released in English by VIZ Media. The latest chapters can be read digitally in North America via the MANGA Plus service. The manga also has a few spin-offs focused on different characters from the series.
