“My Hero Academia,” created by comic artist, Kohei Horikoshi, is a Japanese manga. It has been serialized in a shonen manga (comic targeted towards boys) magazine, the “Weekly Shonen Jump,” since 2014. It was adapted into an anime in 2015. It has attracted attention from a very early stage, and has been described as a “hero of the next generation of boys’ manga.” As of 2018, it is one of Shonen Jump’s leading popular works, along with other comics such as “ONE PIECE,” “HUNTER X HUNTER,” and “Haikyu!!”. What makes a hero great is “not to fight, but to save people.” The “hero” in the series is portrayed as one who engages in economic activities and competition in accordance with the spirit of capitalism, while at the same time, being also a savior with high work ethics to “save” many people. On the other hand, the main character Izuku, is portrayed as someone who seeks the ideals of self-sacrifice and social service that heroes possess, and avoids self-absolutization. As a result, this work became an epoch-making manga that succeed in positioning social ethics above the spirit of capitalism in its portrayal. As of February 2023, the cumulative circulation worldwide has exceeded 85 million copies. It is also very popular in the United States and France, and has become a driving force in the local manga markets as well.
