My Hero Academia to Take a Sudden Hiatus

It seems like My Hero Academia is ready to take on its next break. If a new report is true, the hit superhero manga will be pulling out of Weekly Shonen Jump's upcoming issue. Creator Kohei Horikoshi is reportedly taking a week-long breaking before bringing the series back for a new episode. This means fans shouldn't panic over a longstanding hiatus, but a break is a break. And given how hard Horikoshi has been working, well - he deserves a bit of extra rest. 

Fans were told about the wait this week after reports of the sudden hiatus surfaced. The wait will be a bit longer as a new update from @Atsushi101X on Twitter (who has a great track record in spotting many announcements from the series) asserts that the series will be taking a sudden break in the next Shonen Jump magazine coming on Sunday, September 12 (Monday, September 13 in Japan). Unfortunately, no potential reason for the break has been reported.

Thankfully, the report does state that the series will be resuming with Chapter 326 of the series in following issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine coming the week after on Sunday, September 19 (Monday, September 20 in Japan). Barring any scheduling issues from the next few weeks, and barring the sudden break being for any major health concerns for Horikoshi, then the series will be resuming its new chapters fairly soon.

It has yet to be officially confirmed or announced that My Hero Academia's manga will be taking a break, however, but there's a good chance that we'll see an official announcement with the next issue of Shonen Jump. The same reported hiatus popped up for Yuki Tabata's Black Clover series shortly before it was officially confirmed as well. Eiichiro Oda's One Piece has also been reported to be taking a break in an upcoming issue of the magazine as well so fans are going to be missing some of their favorites within a short span.
