My Hero Academia came out with a new chapter on Sunday, January 23, bringing our favorite villains back into play! However, Manga Plus notified its readers today that My Hero Academia chapter 342 will be delayed for a week. This is because MHA creator Kohei Horikoshi is taking a creative break.
Chapter 341 of My Hero Academia was a villain-focused chapter beginning with Toga visiting her childhood home and reliving some of her terrible childhood. As she leaves, Dabi appears at a nearby window. Dabi then sets fire to her childhood home, reassuring Toga that it'll be funny while also setting her free from the past.
The latest chapter also reveals that Toga can also use the quirk of a person when she transforms into them if she is close to that person. Dabi then gives Toga some of Twice's blood. Meanwhile, Shigaraki, chained inside a cave where he suffers in agony, can be seen at the villain's hideout. A room filled with All For One's underlings is also shown, including the Sludge Villain from chapter 1.
Since the My Hero Academia manga will be on a break next week, let's find out when Chapter 342 will release.
My Hero Academia Chapter 342 Release Date and Time
My Hero Academia is a weekly release manga series, with new chapters released every Sunday. However, according to MangaPlus' official website, MHA will take a short break and not release a chapter next Sunday. Fans should not worry, though, for this will only be a week-long break.
When it comes to the releases of new chapters, these short breaks are pretty standard, especially since creator Horikoshi has a tight schedule.
