The manga has inspired three television anime seasons, and the fourth season will premiere on October 12. The My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film opened in Japan in August 2018, and the My Hero Academia THE MOVIE -Heroes: Rising- film will open on December 20.
The manga has also inspired the My Hero Academia: Vigilantes and My Hero Academia Smash!! spinoff manga and the My Hero Academia: School Briefs novel series, all of which Viz Media is releasing in English.
