My Hero Academia Creator Celebrates Summer With Deku Squad Sketch


The creator of My Hero Academia, Kohei Horikoshi, is just as eager to embrace the summer season as fans are. Despite his demanding schedule, Horikoshi has recently taken a number of breaks. However, he always finds a way to connect with his fans, often sharing special artwork online to keep readers satisfied. In fact, Horikoshi recently treated fans to a delightful summer-themed artwork for My Hero Academia, which beautifully depicts Deku's squad coming together.

This artwork was shared by Horikoshi overseas as a tribute to Natsukomi 2023. Alongside other mangaka who also paid homage to the event through their art, Horikoshi's Summer 2023 tribute showcases Deku alongside his closest allies, highlighting the camaraderie within his team.


In this sketch, Deku takes center stage, summoning the formidable power of One For All. Clad in his signature cloak, he appears markedly different from the young boy we first met when My Hero Academia began. Similarly, the other two heroes featured in the sketch, Shoto and Katsuki, exude a sleekness in their silhouettes.

To the left, Shoto captivates with his red-and-white hair slicked back, accentuating his sharp features. Interestingly, he is depicted utilizing fire, a stark contrast to his reserved demeanor when the manga initially started. On the other hand, Katsuki, the explosive and temperamental hero, appears surprisingly composed in this shot. Sparks emanate near his face, showcasing the evolution of his Quirk. It's quite remarkable to witness the normally volatile student exuding such calmness, especially considering My Hero Academia's early focus on his explosive anger.

Undoubtedly, My Hero Academia has traversed a remarkable journey since its inception, and Kohei Horikoshi continues to dedicate himself to the series. As the manga enters its final act, tensions are running high in My Hero Academia. With numerous battles unfolding, our beloved heroes are fiercely fighting for their future, and amidst it all, these three characters have been thrust into the spotlight as they confront All For One in a climactic showdown.

If you're looking to catch up on the latest events in My Hero Academia, there's no need to worry! You can read the manga chapters through the Shonen Jump app or Manga Plus. For more comprehensive information about the series, please refer to the official synopsis of My Hero Academia provided below:

"Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn't got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny..."
