Shonen Jump, the weekly publication where My Hero Academia is released, also posted a statement, stating readers “mentioned in the current My Hero Academia chapter that the character ‘Maruta’ had a name that remembered ‘past historic truths’. There was no intent behind the calling from the author or editorial department. Considering that it’s not our intent to overlap work with unassociated historic truths, after seeking advice from with the author, we have actually chosen to alter the name when chapters are assembled in future volumes,” according to a translation by an unofficial Shonen Jump account.

The most recent arc in the My Hero Academia manga features the characters focusing on the villians, while much more appears to be cooking behind the scenes from different celebrations. Ujiko, the developer of the monstrous Nomu, has actually lastly been exposed and the heroes are all set to snatch him for his crimes.
