My Hero Academia’s hype continues as the popular manga series wins the award for Best Manga in the Harvey Awards, which gives recognitions for outstanding works in graphic art and comic book categories. The said awarding was held during the New York City Comic Con that happened on Friday.
The manga series competed against other popular manga works like ONE’s Mob Psycho 100, Junji Ito’s Frankenstein: Junji Ito Story Collection, Kamome Shirahama’s Witch Hat Atelier¸ Junji Ito’s Smashed, and Yuhki Kamatani’s Our Dreams At Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare.
My Hero Academia was first published in the Weekly Shonen Jump in 2014. The anime adaptation’s fourth season will premiere in October 2019. The manga is licensed and officially released in English by VIZ Media with Caleb Cook credited as translator. It is both released in print and digital formats.
Other nominations in the Harvey Awards were Tony Valente’s Radiant for Best European Book and Alita: Battle Angel for Best Adaptation From a Comic of Graphic Novel. Unfortunately, both titles did not win the respective awards.
Last year’s winner for the Best Manga in the Harvey Awards went to Nakata Kabi’s popular yuri manga My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness.
Congratulations to My Hero Academia! The recognition very timely for the premiere of its anime adaptation’s fourth season!
