Today is beyond Plus Ultra, as My Hero Academia has officially announced another new spin-off series, this one focusing on the ladies of Class 1A.
At the end of the latest chapter of My Hero Academia, it was revealed that a new spin-off series was coming. The upcoming manga will be titled Watashi No Hero Academia, which translates to My Heroine Academia.
You can check out a photo of the announcement below, along with a translation of what's going on.
BNHA getting another official spin-off comic, kind of like the SMASH comics, but drawn by a new mangaka by the name of Akiyama Youkou? Interesting... pic.twitter.com/tJo1O5O6MD— ☆オードリーAudrey☆ (@aitaikimochii) June 22, 2018
According to the translator, it sounds as though the spin-off will be centered around on the girls of Class 1A, who have all had substantial roles in the main ongoing series. What isn't clear at this point is whether the book will just be a one-shot, or if it will continue as a separate ongoing, releasing alongside the original MHA.
Translated the small comic from the BNHA spin-off series. This art class panel is hilarious, and MomoJirou is strong lol. pic.twitter.com/AyQ2l7nPuo— ☆オードリーAudrey☆ (@aitaikimochii) June 22, 2018
My Heroine Academia has been the subject of fan-faction for quite some time, and it looks as though the dreams of these readers are finally coming to fruition.8comments
The idea of MHA spin-offs is fairly popular right now, as fans are diving headfirst into My Hero Academia Vigilantes, which is currently 31 chapters in. This series follows a group of new characters who weren't featured in the main continuity, as they fight crime outside the lines of the law.
