Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced that My Hero Academia manga by Kohei Horikoshi will go on a 2-week hiatus starting from June 9, 2024, after the release of chapter 425 in WSJ issue #28 and will come back on June 30, 2024 with chapter 426 in WSJ issue #31.

Reasons were not stated nor was there any mention of Horikoshi’s health being degraded. But we do hope that he’s doing well and we wish him the best!

My Hero Academia manga chapter 425 is the 2nd chapter of the series’ epilogue, where Deku and the others graduate from 1st year to 2nd year, hence now being called Class 2-A. However, the story isn’t over yet, as Horikoshi specifically mentioned that he’ll keep going on for a little while.

About My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia is a manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine, Weekly Shōnen Jump, since July 2014, with its chapters additionally collected into 39 tankōbon volumes as of November 2023.

It inspired many spin-off manga, including My Hero Academia: Smash!!, Vigilantes, and Team-Up Missions. Besides light novels, stage plays, and souvenirs, the franchise has produced many video games.

Studio Bones produced the first season from April to June 2016, a second from April to September 2017, a third from April to September 2018, a fourth from October 2019 to April 2020, a fifth from March to September 2021, a sixth from October 2022 to March 2023, and a seventh that is currently in production.

It has three animated films, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, Heroes Rising, and World Heroes’ Mission, plus nine original video animations. The fourth animated film and a live-action Legendary Entertainment film are currently being planned.

Crunchyroll describes Season 1 of My Hero Academia as follows:

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 enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
