The My Hero Academia manga prepares to say goodbye to the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, with Kohei Horikoshi telling the story of UA Academy’s final battle against Shigaraki, the League of Villains, and All For One. With the anime adaptation helping to elevate the source material to new heights, the Shonen franchise has released news of how many copies are currently in circulation, with recent numbers skyrocketing thanks to both the anime’s War Arc and its final story arc .
In both the War Arc and Final Arc, Deku and his friends from the UA Academy team up with professional heroes in an attempt to save the Hero Society while facing some dangerous odds as Shigaraki and All For One have gathered quite an army to aid a world that favors the strong over the weak. With the latest chapters of the manga seeming to turn the tide in favor of the heroes, while the opponents still have several aces in the hole, the most recent chapter has given us the beginning of what will be the final showdown between Izuku Midoriya and Shigaraki could be. while All For One and One For All face each other again.
My Record Academia
The official Twitter account of My Hero Academia confirmed that there are currently eighty-five million copies of the Shonen’s manga, which is an astounding number considering that there were twenty million fewer physical copies of the manga in the wild around the world around the same time a year ago:

Unfortunately, creator Kohei Horikoshi recently announced that his manga series would be on hiatus for two weeks, with the mangaka suffering from health issues as he recently stated that his shoulder was in serious trouble. While the artist has confirmed that My Hero Academia would end with this latest storyline, he hasn’t given a specific date or chapter that will end the journey of Deku and his fellow super-powered teens. On the other hand, the Studio Bones anime adaptation also hasn’t confirmed how many seasons and/or movies the franchise has left in the tank.
