Not long after they have begun their simultaneously digital chapter releases of My Hero Academia in their Weekly Shonen Jump app, Viz Media have just thrown down the major news that they will also be releasing the series in print.
My Hero Academia is a commercial success in Japan with volumes of the manga flying off shelves across the country and many touting it as the next big thing in Shonen Jump (including us here at SnapThirty). The series follows Izuku Midoriya a quirkless nobody in a world where 80% of the population developed powers known as quirks. He wants to be a hero more than anything and an encounter with legendary hero All Might may just be his very own shot at a superhero origin story.
Viz Media announced their print release will begin with the first volume releasing in August 2015. Stay tuned for more details on the release. Remember with great power comes great manga and boy oh boy is My Hero Academia great.
