Shonen Jump has released character designs for the anime adaptation of Kōhei Horikoshi‘s My Hero Academia. The manga is set in a world where the majority of people have super powers, called ‘quirks’, and follows young Izuku ‘Deku’ Midoriya-kun on his journey from biggest loser to world’s greatest hero! If you haven’t checked out the manga, it’s a definite must read.
The My Hero Academia anime will premiere April 3rd for the 2016 Spring Anime Season.
Kenji Nagasaki (Blood Blockade Battlefront, Noragami, Space Dandy) will be leading the adaptation by Studio Bones (Akagami no Shirayukihime, Eureka Seven, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood). I’m excited to see such a great studio getting the chance to work on an amazing series!
