My Hero Academia Mangaka Claims Series Will ‘Meet Its Goal’ In 1 Year

My Hero Academia mangaka Kōhei Horikoshi hinted at his plans to end the manga during the Jump Festa '22 event on Sunday.

Horikoshi sent out a written message which was read by Izuku Midoriya voice actor Daiki Yamashita stating;

If "HeroAca" continues to progress smoothly, in just about exactly a year from now it will meet its goal... that's the situation. If it doesn't go smoothly, I think Yamashita-kun will be reading out the exact same letter from me at next year's Jump Festa.

The mangaka also teased an upcoming “big scene” for Bakugo that he promises will excite the character’s biggest fans and critics alike. The series entered its final act this past March, and looks to be heading towards a decisive battle between All For One and One For All.

The My Hero Academia manga began its run in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine in 2014. The series has amassed 32 collected volumes so far throughout its run, and has inspired three different spin-off manga alongside light novel adaptations, video games, and two musicals.

The anime adaptation first aired during the Spring 2016 season and is produced by Studio Bones. The 13-episode season was followed by a 25-episode second season that premiered in April 2017. The series’ third season was released a year later, also running for 25 episodes, with the fourth and fifth seasons following suit. The sixth season will premiere sometime in Fall 2022.

The series has inspired three feature anime films. The first, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, was released in 2018, followed by Heroes Rising in 2019, and World Heroes' Mission in 2021. World Heroes’ Mission earned US$40 Million at the worldwide box office, standing as the most successful of the three.

VIZ Media licenses the manga and its spin-offs in English. The anime is streamed on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
