While it hasn’t been on the US’s New York Times Best Sellers List for Graphic Novels in the past two months or the recent NPD Bookscan Top Twenty Adult Graphic Novels Chart in December, Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia broke a new record according to Shueisha’s announcement in Mainichi Shimbun’s Mantan Web, the Superhero manga has reached 65 Million Copies in Circulation worldwide. The number includes copies in print and digital copies but is not a sales statistic. The manga has a cumulative circulation of 45 million in Japan (including digital copies as well as copies in print sold and unsold).
Most recently, Shueisha unveiled the newest cover for Volume 33 on the My Hero Academia’s Official Twitter Account which will go on sale on February 4th in Japan and released a special promotional video to promote the book. Some stores will release three special illustrations drawn by Horikoshi himself alongside the volume. US fans, however, will have to wait for the 30th volume release until March 1st.
