My Hero Academia: Series exceeds 100 million copies sold worldwide after 10 years of serialization Kohei Horikoshi thanks his fans

It was revealed on April 4th that the total number of copies of the popular manga series "My Hero Academia" by Kohei Horikoshi, which is currently being serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump" (Shueisha), has surpassed 100 million worldwide. The latest 40th volume was released on the same day, bringing the total number of copies in Japan, including digital versions, to approximately 60 million, and the total number of copies in overseas to approximately 40 million. The series began serialization in July 2014, and reached the 100 million mark this year, its 10th anniversary.

To commemorate the milestone of 100 million copies, a newly drawn illustration by Horikoshi was released. Horikoshi commented, "I have been able to walk in thin-soled sneakers along the road that has been paved by many great manga and anime. I think this number is only possible because we are blessed with the times. With that in mind, I am honestly happy that so many people have been willing to pay for the manga I created for such a long time. Thank you so much for supporting Deku and the others. I hope that My Hero Academia can also expand that paved road a little further."
