The illustration highlights All Might, Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, Katsuki Bakugo, and Mirio Togata. Mirio was included as his hero’s name is “Lemillion,” which suits the numerical theme.

Accompanying the artwork was a brief statement by Horikoshi, commenting on the success of the manga, and thanking fans for following Deku on his journey.

My Hero Academia now joins the likes of Astro Boy, Fist of the North Star, Hajime no Ippo, The Kindaichi Case Files and Kingdom in the 100 million copies in circulation club.

In a world where many people possess unique abilities called “quirks,” Izuku “Deku” Midoriya is without one to call his own. After a fateful meeting with the pro-hero All Might, Deku acquires the “One For All” quirk and enrolls in U.A. High School starting a journey to become a pro-hero.

My Hero Academia is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, where it first appeared on July 7th, 2014. In North America, the manga is available translated into English from Viz Media in both digital and print formats; it’s also accessible worldwide on MANGA Plus.

Volume 40 of My Hero Academia is not yet purchasable in North America; volume 37 is the most recent, which was released on March 5th, 2024.
