My Hero Academia Manga Takes Sudden Break Again As Author’s Health Worsens
The manga will skip Weekly Shonen Jump’s issues #10 and #11
The official Twitter account for My Hero Academia manga announced on February 03, 2023, that it will be on a 2-week break due to the author’s poor health.
Consequently, the manga will skip Weekly Shonen Jump’s issues #10 and #11. The manga will resume serialization in issue #12 with chapter 380 on February 20, 2023.
My Hero Academia previously went on hiatus for a week in December 2022 due to author Horikoshi’s poor health as well.
My Hero Academia is a Japanese superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi.
It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shonen manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014, with its chapters additionally collected into 36 tankobon volumes as of October 2022.
The series also has an anime adaptation with six seasons so far and three animated movies.
MAL describes the plot of the manga as follows:
The appearance of “quirks,” newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting.
This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.
Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can.
But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!
Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising.
With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.
