The publisher of the My Hero Academia manga suddenly announced a hiatus schedule. The news was shared by the official Twitter account of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga this week.
My Hero Academia will not appear in the 41st issue of Shueisha’s weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It turns out that the reason for the hiatus is that the comic artist’s health condition is deteriorating.
“The My Hero Academia manga which is scheduled to be published in the weekly magazine Shonen Jump NO 41 (released September 13) will temporarily stop publishing due to the comic artist’s deteriorating physical condition,” tweeted @myheroacademia, as seen by detikcom, Sunday (11/9/2021).
The My Hero Academia manga series will be continued in the next issue of the 42nd Shonen Jump magazine.
“On sale on September 18 (September 20 is a holiday in Japan),” he continued.
The news of the My Hero Academia manga hiatus coincided with the announcement of Yuki Tabata’s Black Cover manga series and Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga series. They took a break for a while.
Kohei Horikoshi launched the My Hero Academia manga series in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump magazine in July 2014. VIZ Media is in charge of releasing it in English digitally and in print in North America.
Shueisha’s MANGAPlus site also publishes the manga in English digitally and can be accessed free of charge.
This manga inspired the birth of anime adaptations, live action, stage plays, video games, and three anime films.
The latest film My Hero Academia The Movie: World Heroes Mission opens in Japanese theaters on August 6.
It was previously reported that sales of the My Hero Academia manga surpassed Demon Slayer in North America. The manga sold 1 million copies or 50.2% more.
In second place is the manga created by Koyoharu Gotouge Demon Slayer with sales of around 557 thousand copies. The third position is the horror manga by Junji Ito.
