This year's eighth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the 14th compiled book volume of Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga will bundle an original anime. Horikoshi is writing the original story for the anime. The magazine's ninth issue on January 30 will reveal more information about the bundle.
The manga's 13th compiled book volume will also bundle an anime when it ships on April 4. The original event anime debuted at the Jump Special Anime Festa event in November, and it links the first season of the anime with the upcoming second season.
The anime's first season of 13 episodes premiered on the MBS/TBS channel on April 3. Funimation streamed the series in Japanese with English subtitles in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland as it aired in Japan. The company also streamed a broadcast dub.
The second season will air on Saturdays at 5:30 p.m. on the NTV (Nippon TV) and YTV (Yomiuri TV) channels beginning in April. The new season will cover the U.A. Sports Festival arc of Kohei Horikoshi's original manga.
Horikoshi launched the superhero manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014, and Shueisha published the 11th compiled volume in Japan in November. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and in print. The company released the manga's sixth compiled volume in English in November.
