My Hero Academia follows a world where nearly everyone is born with special abilities called Quirks. The manga has become an instant hit with fans worldwide, bringing them a compelling story that will appeal to all age groups.

As we recently reported, My Hero Academia manga creator Kohei Horikoshi is taking a break due to his health. This is a worrying situation for fans as it comes on the heels of Horikoshi’s last forced break, which saw him take a week off in December 2022.

The manga’s creator is taking a break

My Hero Academia Manga is going on a sudden hiatus due to manga creator Kohei Horikoshi’s poor health. The manga has already been put on hold several times for the same reason since Horikoshi launched the series in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014.

Despite his limitations, Midoriya is determined to do whatever it takes to become a hero. In order to accomplish his dream, he enrolled in a prestigious hero academy and has since excelled.

However, things are about to get complicated for Midoriya. A newly revealed target on his back is causing a major uproar at the hero academy. This is because his nemesis, Tomura Shigaraki, is trying to take over the control of AFO by using his Quirk to steal other people’s superpowers.

While this may seem like a bad situation for the series, it’s important to remember that manga creators need to take time to rest and recover. It’s not the first time Horikoshi has had to put his manga on hold for this reason, but it’s still reassuring to see that his health and well-being are being given top priority.

The manga’s sales have reached 50 million copies

One of the world’s best-selling manga, My Hero Academia has reached a massive milestone. According to the manga’s official Twitter account, it has sold more than 50 million copies. This figure makes the series one of the top-selling mangas in history, alongside such iconic titles as Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist and Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter.

This impressive figure is a testament to the manga’s huge worldwide fandom. It’s been a staple of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump since 2014, and has spawned a successful anime adaptation from Bones Inc & Toho Animation.

The story follows Izuku Midoriya, a teenager who dreams of becoming a superhero. He was born without a Quirk, but after meeting Japan’s greatest hero All Might, he decides to work hard and enlists in the UA (the University of Academia) where students train for superpowers.

As the series enters its Final War Arc, its popularity is only increasing. Its sales have also hit an all-time high, and fans are rushing to get their hands on the latest chapters.

Despite the manga’s sudden hiatus, its sales continue to be strong. With more than 85 million copies sold, the manga is currently ranked fifth on Oricon’s yearly comic sale chart. This is a huge achievement for the series, and it is likely to reach even greater heights in the future.

The manga’s Final War Arc is nearing its end

During a recent interview, My Hero Academia manga author Kohei Horikoshi revealed that his story could end in 2022. This is a significant change from his initial statements that the manga would last forever.

Despite this, the manga still has a few more arcs that need to be animated. According to Horikoshi, the anime will need an additional season to adapt these arcs.

Another major arc that needs to be adapted is the Stars and Stripes Arc. This is a story that will begin the 34th volume of the series.

The story is set in America and will revolve around one of the world’s most famous heroes.

It will also introduce a new villain who will become the most dangerous villain in My Hero Academia history. This is because he will be using the power of empathy to defeat our hero heroes.

In this arc, Deku and the other heroes will be faced with their most formidable battle of their lives. The battle will be against Tomura Shigaraki, a villain from the League of Villains who has manipulated many of our heroes throughout the series.
