My Hero Academia‘s Shoto Todoroki received a special trailer for his birthday on January 11, 2023. Kohei Horikoshi is running the manga series in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
Shoto Todoroki is a Class 1-A student at U.A. High School and possesses a quirk called Half-Cold Half-Hot. His father is one of the top heroes, Endeavour – his real name is Enji Todoroki. Yuki Kaji is voicing Shoto Todoroki in the anime adaptation. The birthday trailer covers content yet to be adapted into the anime, so a spoiler warning is made for anime-only viewers.
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 on its 6th season.
Viz Media licensed the manga for English releases and published the latest, 32nd volume on October 4, 2022. The 33rd volume’s release is set for February 7, 2023. The official website describes the plot of the debut volume 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…
