About My Hero Academia:

The My Hero Academia TV anime is based on Kohei Horikoshi’s manga of the same name.

Kohei Horikoshi launched My Hero Academia in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine on July 14, 2014.

The 37th volume of the manga was released on February 3, 2023.

The manga is published in English on Viz Media’s manga reading platform and Shueisha’s Manga Plus platform.

Viz Media describes the manga as:

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called Quirks?

Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study?

The Hero Academy, of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?
