The official Twitter account of the Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) manga posted an image of the cover of the series' Jump Supporter Book, which will be released on November 4, revealing that a TV anime adaptation has been confirmed. That tweet has since been deleted.

The manga series is drawn by Kouhei Horikoshi and has been serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump since July 2014. There are five volumes of the manga in print, with a sixth scheduled to also go on sale on November 4.

The first three volumes of the series respectively placed 100th, 74th, and 92nd in Japan's yearly manga rankings for the first half of 2015. VIZ Media is publishing the series in English with the second volume scheduled for release on November 3. The first English volume remained on The New York Times best seller list for four consecutive weeks.

Last week, it was revealed that Toho Ad, the advertising subsidiary of Toho Group, had registered the web domain heroaca.com. The site is not yet active.

Synopsis
People are not born equal, a realization that 4-year-old Midoriya Izuku faced when bullied by his classmates who had unique special powers. Izuku was one of the rare cases where he was born with absolutely no unique powers. This did not stop Izuku from pursuing his dream, a dream of becoming a great hero like the legendary All-Might. To become the great hero he hopelessly wants to become, he now will join the ranks of one of the highest rated "Hero Academies" in the country: Yueiko. With the help of his idol All-Might, will he be able to claim the ranks and become a true hero? (Source: MangaHelpers)

Naah it wont happen wait for Black Clover or Kamigami . Those 2 mangas are still young but they are better than Boku no Hero Academia . İt will take time for sure to get animated if they are planning to run those 2 long more than 25+ episodes , which is worth to wait because they are really good . My suggestion is that you should take a look at 2-3 chapters of those 3 manga series and compare them . İ was hyped more than when Owari no Seraph announced to get animated lol

Sounds like shit =/

Yea . Drawing is so weird and looking childish comparing to other shounen gettin published right now . But story is very good and looking shounenish more than others . İ have a feeling about it will be like 2 course srping/autumn , summer/autumn or spring/summer which is most likely spring/summer imo .

It isn't inspired by Naruto. People are just calling it the new Naruto, idk why.
I thought the author once said that he was inspired by Naruto, when he had his chance to express his thought on Naruto ending. I am not too sure so don't quote me on that.

Right now they have 4 long running series and 1 short running. One Piece, Naruto, Gintama and World Trigger for Long Running. Haikyuu!! for short running.

They are also promoting 2 long running of series that previously run in the magazine, but not anymore, and 1 long running of a sibling magazine. Dragon Ball Super and Yu-Gi-Oh Arc V for previously serialized series, Battle Spirits for sibling magazine series.

Isobe Isobee Monogatari will be a half minute series, but almost certainly will have an episode every day and will be a long running.

Boku no Hero Academia can still end up being a long running. World Trigger got its announcement in chapter 63, the author is constantly sick and taking breaks, still it adapted 48 episodes with an 2 chapters per episode average and is still running right now. Boku no Hero Academia got its announcement in chapter 65, not to far from World Trigger.

One of the earliest announcement was HunterXHunter with chapter 60(It had an anime announcement at the exact same time as One Piece). It still ended up a long running with 60 episodes and 30 OVAs, and didn't went further just because of HiatusXHiatus.

The magazine isn't in any way running away from Long Running. The thing right now in the current seasonal anime bubble, every title has a chance to be adapted into an anime, before that wasn't the case, and there are a ton of past titles that didn't had any kind of adaptation(for Example: JoJo).

It might still be a long runner World Trigger's anime was announced with less chapters then BnHa and it still became a long runner.

Yeah they actually have.

Ever heard of Blue Exorcist? Runs in Jump SQ (used to be called Monthly Shounen Jump)

Which makes the anime, which was done by A-1 Pictures, a Jump anime.

You must re-phrase, they have never done a WSJ (Weekly Shounen Jump) adaptation.

I was talking about Shonen Jump.

There's enough content for 12 episodes, I'd say. Maybe a little more than that.
I hope Madhouse or Mappa gets this. Bones would be alright too. Just keep Pierrot away from it.


There's enough content for 24 episodes.

A-1 Pictures are the only ones who don't mess it up when it comes to Jump adaptations. The other two are the "experts" on butchering material and pathetic pacing.

A-1 has never done any Jump adaptation.

Feels like it's too soon for it, but I'll be watching.

Figured this would happen, glad it's getting an anime. I need to read more of the manga but of the few chapters I've read I do really like it ^_^...now I just gotta stop being lazy and buy volume 1 already.

I haven't really been interested to read the manga, but the art is neat and it sounds like a good read so I might take the time to catch up on the recent chapters.

I'm banking on Production I.G/Studio WIT doing this series. Looking forward to more news.
