Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) manga entered the final act in March 2021, and at this year’s Jump Festa, they revealed that he plans to conclude to story, or ‘reach the goal’, with the manga by this time in 2022 if it all goes smoothly. The manga has been ongoing since July 2014, and there are currently 32 published volumes. You can check out the cover of the very first one:
Besides from the author that he plans to conclude the manga story, there were also news for the My Hero Academia anime at Jump Festa 2022. Season 6 will premiere in Fall 2022, and they also revealed a new trailer. The new season will cover the Paranormal Liberation War arc of the series.
Funimation describes the story:
Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam. Nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
My Hero Academia manga is currently one of the most popular Shonen mangas, and seeing it end in 2022 would feel even more sad when we know that many other series are in their final acts. Let’s enjoy it all the way, as well as the upcoming anime!
