My Hero Academia author Kohei Horikoshi posted on Saturday a drawing of Eraser Head, Deku, and Katsuki Bakugo for My Hero Academia Season 6 episode 7. The anime airs every Saturday in Japan, and Crunchyroll streams it internationally.
The newly-posted illustration shows at the center the bored Erasure Hero: Eraser Head, also known as Shota Aizawa and the homeroom teacher of U.A. High School Class 1-A. Tied next to him are an annoyed Katsuki Bakugo (left) and Izuku Midoriya (right) who seems to be trying to ease Bakugo’s temper. The text above them in the picture reads “The anime [airs] soon later“. The post came at 5:29 in the evening, one minute before the episode’s broadcast, with a caption “The anime airs very soon later, or it’s around the time the anime is already starting.“
Kohei Horikoshi draws the My Hero Academia manga, which has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since July 2014. The series released the first compiled volume in November 2014 and published the latest, 36th, volume on October 4, 2022. The manga inspired TV anime adaptation by the studio Bones, which is currently airing the 6th season. The series also spawned three movies, each of which was fairly successful.
Viz Media licensed the manga for English releases and describes the plot of Volume 1 as:
Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn’t got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny…
