The official website for the television anime of Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) manga revealed on Tuesday that the studio BONES (Blood Blockade Battlefront, Concrete Revolutio, Noragami Aragoto, Fullmetal Alchemist) will produce the animation for the project. The site also unveiled the anime's first visual.

Horikoshi launched his My Hero Academia superhero manga series in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014. The manga's story is set in the modern day, except people with special powers have become commonplace throughout the world. A boy named Izuku Midoriya has no powers, but he still dreams of becoming a Hero.

The 48th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump had revealed that the 49th issue would have a "super super super important announcement" on Monday. Additionally, the official Twitter account for the manga had briefly posted a picture last Tuesday that said that a television anime adaptation had been green-lit.

The manga's first compiled book volume ranked on Oricon's chart of the top ten best selling graphic novels in Japan in its first week of release. Shueisha shipped the manga's fifth volume on August 4. The company will ship the sixth volume on November 4.

Viz Media is releasing the manga in English digitally as Shueisha publishes new chapters in Japan. The company also published the first volume in print on August 4.
