and has been serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump

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.
People are not born equal, a realization that 4-year-old Midoriya Izuku faced when bullied by his classmates who had unique special powers.
