Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.

While Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga continues to go strong—back in January it blew past the milestone of 65 million copies in circulation—one of its spinoffs recently concluded. This past May saw the launch of the final chapter of My Hero Academia: Vigilantes, bringing Hideyuki Furuhashi and Betten Court’s series to an exciting close.
The Vigilantes manga first kicked off in the pages of Jump GIGA back in 2016 before moving to Shonen Jump+ later that year.
