With 50 million copies of My Hero Academia in the world, the series has overtaken the lifetime print runs of Tokyo Ghoul, and is on par with classic series such as City Hunter, Great Teacher Onizuka, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Haikyu!!. The last time we checked in with the series was at the start of 2021 with 30 million copies printed and sold, which means in three whole months, the series has increased by 20 million copies, which is no small feat!
The 5th season of the My Hero Academia TV anime series returned on March 27 and has its first episode streaming on Crunchyroll right now. The third animated feature film for the series My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes Mission will be premiering in Japan on August 6.
