If you’ve got a burning question for My Hero Academia creator Kōhei Horikoshi, now’s the time to ask. The manga creator is taking questions on Twitter with the hashtag “#堀越耕平先生に聞いてみよう”.
(for those that don’t speak Japanese, that’s “Let’s Ask Kōhei Horikoshi-sensei”)
As you can guess, the Twitter festivities are all a part of a promotion for the upcoming My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: Futari no Hero theatrical release. Fans have the opportunity to ask any question they like until the clock strikes midnight on June 5th.
From there, Horikoshi will select his favorites… answering them on the “Power Push” page via Comic Natalie.
The ramp up for My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: Futari no Hero has been gold-star status so far, from premium snack crates to con appearances. The film opens in theaters in Japan on August 3rd, with its setting taking place overseas, on a giant manmade floating movable city called I Island. We’ll be thrown in after the Final Exam Arc, during “another summer” of the Forest Training Arc. In addition, the film will show the younger days of All Might.
If you’re lucky, you can catch Horikoshi at his year’s San Diego Comic-Con event (which just so happens to be his first professional North American appearance). He’ll participate in a My Hero Academia panel discussion along with voice actors like Christopher R. Sabat (All Might) and Justin Briner (Deku). And if that’s not enough, he will also participate in Viz Media‘s Shonen Jump panel and two autograph sessions.
