On June 24, 2024, it was announced on Weekly Shonen Jump’s official YouTube channel, “Jump PRESS,” that the popular manga “My Hero Academia” (written by Kohei Horikoshi) will conclude in five remaining chapters. The final chapter is scheduled to be published in Weekly Shonen Jump’s combined issue 36 and 37, set to be released on August 5. Kohei Horikoshi also expressed his gratitude to the readers in his announcement.

“My Hero Academia” is set in a world where everyone has superpowers known as “Quirks.” The story follows Izuku Midoriya (Deku), who was born without a Quirk, as he enrolls in U.A. High School, a prestigious academy for training heroes, striving to become a full-fledged hero. The series began serialization in 2014, and as of the release of the 40th volume in April this year, the total worldwide circulation of the comics has exceeded 100 million copies. Over 60 million copies have been sold domestically, with more than 40 million sold overseas, including digital versions.

This work has been adapted into various media, including TV anime, movies, games, and stage plays, and is loved worldwide. As “My Hero Academia” celebrates its 10th anniversary in serialization this July, Horikoshi commented, “There are only 5 chapters left. Some may think, ‘There are still 5 chapters!?’ while others may feel, ‘Only 5 chapters left!?’ I will do my best to ensure both groups enjoy the final chapters!”

As a token of gratitude to the readers, he added, “It is thanks to all of you that I have been able to continue depicting Deku and the others for nearly 10 years. Thank you very much!” As of June 24, 2024, the seventh season of the TV anime is currently airing, and the fourth theatrical movie, “My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: Your Next,” is set to be released on August 2.
