Color Versions of “My Hero Academia” Anime Designs Go Online

You might remember that My Hero Academia author Kōhei Horikoshi has expressed his admiration for character designer Yoshiko Umakoshi‘s earlier work on Heartcatch Precure, and said that Umakoshi‘s take on the characters might be better than his own. Those designs of Quirk (super power) lacking, aspiring hero Izuku Midoriya (CV Daiki Yamashita) and legendary superman All Might (CV Kenta Miyake ) are now online in color.  


Gundam Build Fighters’ Kenji Nagasaki will helm the Bones (Blood Blockade Battlefront, Noragami, Space Dandy) production. He reunites with GBF writer Yousuke Kuroda for the upcoming TV anime.




Author Kohei Horikoshi has also recently posted a couple of hype sketches


Meanwhile, Illustrator Hisashi Murakami is back with a tribute to villain Himiko Toga
