My Hero Academia might be heading towards part 2, and the new character hints at it

With the publication of Chapter 425 of My Hero Academia, the manga depicted Izuku Midoriya and his classmates being promoted to Class 2A and embarking on a new academic year. Despite the apparent return to peace in society, the chapter alluded to a potential continuation of the manga through the introduction of a mysterious new character.

The latest manga chapter depicted the graduation of the third-year students from U.A. High School. Meanwhile, Class 1A advanced to Class 2A and Yuga Aoyama departed from the school to begin his hero journey from the beginning. In his place, Hitoshi Shinso was introduced. Furthermore, the manga alluded to a potential storyline involving the Todoroki family.

It has been conveyed to fans by manga creator Kohei Horikoshi that the My Hero Academia manga will soon come to an end after its epilogue. This suggests that there is unlikely to be a sequel series for the manga.

Alternatively, the manga creator may also be referring to the conclusion of the current manga series. They could potentially continue the franchise in the future through a second manga series, similar to the branching off of the “Boruto”manga into both “Naruto Next Generations”and “Two Blue Vortex”series.

Therefore, the possibility of a part 2 for the My Hero Academia manga cannot be completely ruled out, although it has not been officially confirmed at this time.

Fans have started to speculate that this is because of Kohei Horikoshi’s skill in storytelling. Unlike most Shonen manga, which tend to wrap up quickly after the climax, My Hero Academia appears to have a longer serialization ahead.

Furthermore, the events depicted in chapter 425 suggest a dark and ominous occurrence unfolding in the background. The panels within the chapter show an unknown figure, covered in stitches, wielding scissors to cut an unknown object. Shortly after, they are shown breathing heavily and shedding tears as they wander through a desolate and ruined city all by themselves.

Fans speculate that the enigmatic new character may serve as the primary antagonist in the manga’s second part.

In the chapter, Mawata Fuwa and Shoto Todoroki also alluded to this idea. Mawata shared that they were now living in a post-All Might retirement and post-Jaku war era. However, after any significant battle, there was always a period of turmoil that was rarely discussed. Mawata’s message was that it was crucial for them to remain vigilant during this time.

Shoto Todoroki also mentioned that All For One emerged during a time of disorder, when there was no symbol of peace. Although the manga initially seemed to imply that the heroes still had a long journey ahead, the introduction of this enigmatic character and Shoto’s words suggest that they may become the new “All For One”and serve as the main antagonist in the sequel series.
