My Hero Academia is set to soar.
The anime series, for the uninitiated, is about a group of students attending a hero academy. With three seasons and an upcoming feature film under its belt, My Hero Academia is officially a full-fledged franchise. Produced by Bones, My Hero Academia is based on the New York Times best-selling superhero manga of the same name that first appeared in Shonen Jump in 2014. To date, there are 22 volumes in the manga series, with more than 20 million copies estimated to be in print around the world.
Now, thanks to a total 31 licensing partners — plus more in the wings — My Hero Academia is represented across all major merchandise categories, ranging from apparel, accessories, figures, and collectibles to home goods, wall décor, gifts, calendars, and costumes. Literally allllll the My Hero Academia.
