Kohei Horikoshi’s “My Hero Academia” (Boku no Hero Academia) manga has entered the final act with the latest chapter. Mantan Web published an article that it’s entering the final chapters, and the most recent chapter ended with “306 – The Final Act Begins”. It’s unknown how long it will last, but it might mean they are heading towards a clear ending now. The manga has been ongoing since July 2014, and there are currently 29 published volumes. You can check out the cover of the very first one:
The manga has recently been getting really interesting, and hopefully the final act lasts for a while. So far there have been 2 “acts” which both included multiple arcs. Then again, we’ll have to wait for at least one more chapter to get some idea of how it will move forward.
On the other hand, season 5 of the anime will premiere in 5 days on March 27. It will likely animate the Joint Training Arc, although it might go into the Meta Liberation Army Arc as well.
Everyone probably already knows it at this point, but the synopsis of the story goes:
“Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.”
My Hero Academia manga is currently one of the most popular Shonen mangas, and the final act will surely keep up. Let’s enjoy it all the way, as well as the upcoming anime.
