posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The latest volume of the My Hero Academia manga was released in Japan on December 4 and creator Kōhei Horikoshi celebrated the release by getting into the holiday spirit. Horikoshi posted a drawing showing his superheroes recast as quintessential Christmas objects with Deku filling the role as the tree and Fumikage Tokoyami cooked up for the feast.

The manga's 21st volume features both Hawks and Endeavor on the cover, two of the Japan's current favorites.

The film My Hero Academia: Two Heroes earned 500,320,000 yen (about US$4.49 million) in its first three days to rank #4 in its opening weekend. The movie has since earned more than 1.5 billion yen (about US$13.46 million) at the Japanese box office.

The film's home video release will include a new bonus anime All Might: Rising The Animation that will adapt the "No.0 ALL MIGHT: RISING" one-shot manga given out to the film's first million audience members in Japan. Viz Media released the 10-page manga for free in English on its website.

The series will get a stage play next spring and Legendary Entertainment is producing a Hollywood live-action adaptation. The manga has inspired three television anime series, and a fourth season is in the works. The third 25-episode series premiered on April 7.
