The Final Arc is currently underway within the pages of My Hero Academia's manga, with Kohei Horikoshi promising that the tale of UA Academy will draw to a close, it seems that the Shonen franchise is seeing a serious uptick in sales overall. With the sixth season of the anime adaptation set to arrive later this fall to tell the story of the War Arc, and two new OVA specials set to hit streaming services later this year, Deku and friends are set to have a bright future.
My Hero Academia is set to adapt the story of the War Arc this fall, with the sixth season of the anime set to see Shigaraki's Paranormal Liberation Front face off against both the young heroes of Class 1-A and the professional crime fighters that are working their hardest to hold together Hero Society. With the latest trailer giving fans a hint as to how Studio BONES is set to approach one of the biggest fights of the series to date, it will be interesting to see if the War Arc adaptation is also able to propel sales in a similar fashion as the final arc of the manga series has.
Twitter User Josu_Ke shared a sales chart that shows how My Hero Academia has increased sales since the beginning of the final arc of the superhero Shonen franchise, with Volume 33 becoming the highest-selling volume of the series to date thanks in part to the beginning of the Final Arc:

Recently, My Hero Academia released two new OVA specials, one of which saw the students of UA Academy participating in a baseball exhibition while the other further explored the internship that Deku, Bakugo, and Shoto Todoroki had working under the number one hero Endeavor. With these two specials set to stream around the world later this year, 2022 is a great year for fans of Deku and his friends, though the Final Arc might not see all our heroes escape the battle against All For One and Shigaraki with their lives.
Do you think My Hero Academia's sales will continue to rise as the story of the Final Arc unfolds? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of UA Academy.
