Viz Media Announces Four New Acquisitions


Looking for more My Hero Academia? Viz goes beyond the established series and beyond sanity with their latest acquisition. What are we talking about, you may ask? Once you see it….you’ll still have no idea.

Viz is bringing the comedic spinoff My Hero Academia: SMASH!! to the US. This is a comedic reimagining of the hit series, spoofing the events of the first few volumes with crazy gags and wild expressions (we mean even wilder than usual). It’s cuckoo, crazy and non-canonical!

Besides MHA Smash, three more manga series were announced today: Komi Can’t Communicate, Beastars, and Automatic Eve. A description for each follows:

KOMI CAN’T COMMUNICATE · Debuts Summer 2019

Socially anxious high school student Shoko Komi’s greatest dream is to make some friends, but everyone at school mistakes her crippling social anxiety for cool reserve! With the whole student body keeping their distance and Komi unable to utter a single word, friendship might be forever beyond her reach.

BEASTARS · Debuts Summer 2019

At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, it’s personal relationships that maintain the fragile peace. Who among them is a Beastar—an academic and social role model destined to become a leader in a society naturally rife with mistrust?

AUTOMATIC EVE (Novel) · Debuts Summer 2019

A mighty shogunate ruling the land from Tempu Castle. An imperial line of strict female succession. Caught between these two immense powers, the sprawling city of Tempu is home to many wonders—not least a superhuman technological achievement in the form of a beautiful automaton known as Eve. When a secret that threatens to shake the imperial line intersects with the mystery of Eve’s creation, events are set in motion that soon race toward a shocking conclusion. A new, astonishingly inventive science fantasy masterpiece of historic proportions.

These titles will be available at your local bookstore (and Amazon if there aren’t any bookstores around) next summer.
