My Hero Academia creator is set to come out in public at the Jump Festa 2017 this December. Fans expect to get more details as to when My Hero Academia Season 2 will air.
Mangaka artist Kohei Horikoshi, creator of My Hero Academia / Boku no Hero Academia is reported to be a very private and shy person. His first public appearance was on a TV show in January 2016. Because he did not want to reveal his face, he wore a gas mask during the whole duration of the interview. “I have thought this is a kind of job I don’t need to appear before the public,” the 29-year old mangaka said. “But I have decided [to join] because I received advice from great people that I should. I will try not to bother the voice actors,” Horikoshi adds.
Horikoshi is confirmed to be appearing during a stage event for Boku no Hero Academia. The mangaka artist will be joined by voice actors such as, Daiki Yamashita (Izuku Midoriya) and Nobuhiko Okamoto (Katsuki Bakugou). Rumor has it that because the voice actors are also present during the said event, they will definitely announce some good news about My Hero Academia Season 2. There have been speculations as well that Horikoshi will reveal the air date and plot of the 2nd season.
My Hero Academia Season 2 has been confirmed earlier and was reported to highlight the Sports Festival Arc. However, there is no official announcement as of today regarding its release date.
