This weekend, the hit anime series My Hero Academia reaches another milestone as the twelfth episode of Season 5 will be its 100th episode. As such, a new graphic has been shared to celebrate the momentous occasion.
As revealed by the official My Hero Academia Twitter account, the picture puts the series’ protagonist, Deku, in the forefront dressed in his U.A. school uniform. The other noticeable portion of the pic is the seal behind the hero, noting its achievement of reaching a whopping 100 episodes. A more subtle facet is the road Deku is walking on; It is made up of screens from his journey of becoming a hero. The graphic is in the imbedded tweet below.
My Hero Academia was originally created by Kohei Horikoshi as a manga series and was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2014. The anime adaptation began its first season in 2016. Both the manga and anime are still ongoing. The franchise has also be adapted to other media including video games and film.
In fact, the third film from the franchise, titled My Hero Academia The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission, will be in theaters in Japan on August 6, 2021. A date for a North American theatrical release has yet to be determined.
While you don’t have much time to watch all of My Hero Academia before episode 100 premieres, you can start catching up on the Funimation streaming service. Both subbed and English dub versions of the anime are on the platform.
