posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 48th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga will take a one-week break in the 49th issue so that Horikoshi can conduct research. The manga will return in the magazine's 50th issue on November 13.
Horikoshi launched the superhero manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014, and Shueisha published the 15th compiled volume (pictured at right) in Japan on September 4. Shueisha will publish the 16th compiled volume on November 2. The manga's 13th and 14th compiled book volumes both bundled an original anime. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and in print.
The anime adaptation's second season premiered in Japanese with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and Hulu on April 1, and FunimationNow is streaming the English dub. The anime is receiving a third season, and Funimation will continue to stream the anime.
