In the new short story collection MY HERO ACADEMIA: SCHOOL BRIEFS Vol. 1, catch a behind the scenes look at what the would-be heroes do at school, from the annual Sports Festival, to internships, to even Parents’ Day!

The acclaimed NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND gets a deluxe art book and picture book release this month!
