About My Hero Academia Manga
In case you're unfamiliar, quirks are atypical abilities that distinguish an individual from others. For some reason, society is full of them. One For All, Blue Flames, Black Whip, and All for One are a few examples.
The series follows the young Deku, who decides to become a hero after watching his idol, All Might, do so. However, he lacks any quirks to use, making him a laughingstock among his classmates, particularly the hotheaded Bakugo.
Deku meets All Might, who is currently laying low due to injuries sustained in a major incident, on an extremely fortunate day.
All Might is drawn to Deku because of his strong sense of justice and honor. This inspired him to take Deku under his wing as his successor. To accommodate All Might's power, Deku must train harder than anyone else.
Deku miraculously enters the U.A. with the assistance of All Might. He attends high school, where he is bullied by Bakugo and treated unfairly by some teachers before proving himself worthy of his position.

Is My Hero Academia Manga Ending or Over?
My Hero Academia Manga is ending soon, according to the mangaka himself, Kohei Horikoshi.
At the last Jump Festa, a statement from Horikoshi was read and translated as follows by Kotaku.
"If things progress smoothly, the original My Hero Academia manga will reach its goal, for instance, in just about a year. If things do not go smoothly, I think at next year’s Jump Festa, I’ll have Mr. Yamashita read the same statement."
The takeaway is that Horikoshi intends to conclude the manga's story by 2022 if all goes well. If he fails to do so, the manga will be finished by 2023.
Notably, the manga has been put on hold due to COVID concerns. This is also true of other manga series, not just My Hero Academia. The COVID-19 protocols in Japan are extremely stringent, which has an impact on the manga and anime industries.
Regardless, the manga is reaching its conclusion. My Hero Academia's long-running plotlines are now being recognized, and Deku has mastered almost all of One For All's quirks. Horikoshi also stated that Bakugo will play a significant role in the final act of My Hero Academia.
At the time of writing, Horikoshi is working on the conclusion of My Hero Academia, which will satisfy fans all over the world. After all, the series has been well-received around the world.
Although it is unclear when and how Horikoshi will end the series, there is much speculation about the upcoming conclusion.
