Know Your Artist: The Man Behind My Hero Academia, Kohei Horikoshi

Updated: Oct 1, 2020

Kohei Horikoshi

We all know the splendid Anime My Hero Academia. It is the Anime version of Superhero genre and most of know that this is a great Anime. Intact it is considered as one of the “Big Three” of this generation. So we thought it’s our job to let people know about the genius behind this wonderful Anime and Manga.

Kohei Horikoshi grew up as an average Japanese kid, spending time in the classroom thinking about being a superhero from Marvel Comics. He was being inspired by biggies like Akira, Naruto and one piece. Little did he know that he had the talent to create one of the best Anime which is highly appreciated by critics and loved by fans. He was born on the 20th of November. Apart from My Hero Academia his popular works include Oumagadoki zoo and Sensei no Baruji.

With My Hero Academia he received much love worldwide which also brought him awards like Kodansha manga award in 2016 and Harvey award two times in a row in 2018 and 2019.

We are yet to see more wonders from the mangaka as he is still young and so is My Hero Academia. His art style is unique so he’s already well established in the fame game. I will personally lookout for more work from this young genius.

So that’s about Know your artist for this week and we’ll introduce to more artists of your favourite anime and manga in the coming weeks. So make sure to follow us everywhere. Peace out!
