The sheer idea of a My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off sounds intriguing. Horror is one of the genres in anime that is widely loved because of its hooking quality. This week when the latest issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump was released, there was a surprise for the fans of MHA. So, what does Kohei Horikoshi has to say about the project? Is the Spin-off happening anytime soon? Here is everything you need to know about the project.
Kohei Horikoshi has had a history of experimenting with genres and different types of stories. But after Boku No Hero Academia shot to popularity, he has not been able to work on anything else. So, will he work on this new venture after the manga concludes? Let’s analyze the odds.
My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off: Kohei Horikoshi Teases Project
This week, when the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine came out, the latest chapter of My Hero Academia was equipped with a note from the author. Writer Kohei Horikoshi penned a note for his fans expressing his ideas about his next project. The author writes that he has a desire to work on a horror manga for a while. The note reads that “I have a small desire to draw a horror manga,” he wrote. “[A] very small [desire].”
Although he did not mention that the project will essentially be an MHA venture. The story might as well be an independent plot. However, the chances of it being the My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off are very high.
What Is The Future Of My Hero Academia?
As of the time of writing, the manga is running its final arc. So far in the story, the entire team is approaching Shigaraki to take him down. With Dabi’s past right in front of us, it is upon Shouto’s shoulders to bring back his brother. There are many heroes and villains that need to see a conclusive ending. Moreover, the author cannot hinder the pace of the manga.
Thus, there are many weeks until the manga is finished. Thus, the question of the future of the franchise is still far away. And if the My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off is given enough emphasis, then it might make it to Shonen soon enough.
My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off: Release Details
It is undeniable that expecting a direct release from the author is a bit of a stretch. The artist has been working on Boku No Hero Academia for eight years now. Other than this, he has been working as an advisor on the anime project as well. Thus, the author will be taking a break for a short while after My Hero Academia manga is finished. It is only after the project is completed that the author will think about working My Hero Academia Horror Spin-off.
