On Friday, the official Twitter account for Kōhei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga announced that the manga will be taking a two-week hiatus due to the author’s poor health.
As a result, the manga will not be appearing in the 15th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on Monday or the 16th issue on March 20. The manga will return in the 17th issue on March 27. This is not the first time the manga has gone on hiatus due to Horikoshi’s health, as it also took a one-week break in December and a two-week break last month.
The My Hero Academia manga was launched in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014, and its 37th compiled book volume was released in Japan on February 3. Viz Media publishes the manga in English both digitally and in print in North America, while Shueisha’s MANGA Plus service also publishes the manga in English digitally.
The anime adaptation of the manga premiered its first season in April 2016, followed by a 25-episode second season in April 2017 and a 25-episode third season in April 2018. The fourth season premiered in Japan in October 2019 and aired for 25 episodes, while a two-episode original video anime for the franchise was streamed in Japan in August 2020, with Funimation and Crunchyroll also streaming the episodes. The fifth season of the anime premiered in Japan in March 2021 and aired for 25 episodes, and a new two-episode original video anime was screened in Japan in June 2022. Crunchyroll is streaming both of these episodes.
The sixth season of the anime premiered on October 1, and it will air for two continuous cours for a total of 25 episodes. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan, and an English dub is also available. Additionally, Toonami is airing anime.
