What's the Deal With My Hero Academia?
My Hero Academia is set in a world where people are born with quirks. However, the main protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, also known as "Deku," is born without quirks.
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 the My Hero Academia Manga Ending or Over?
The My Hero Academia manga is ending soon, according to the creator, Kohei Horikoshi, himself.
At the last Jump Festa, a statement from Horikoshi was read and translated as follows:
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 as soon as possible if all goes well.
If he fails to do so, the manga will be finished by 2023 or at a later date.
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.
The health of Kohei Horikoshi also caused delays in the release of new chapters.
In fact, the manga recently announced a two-week break to allow the author to rest before releasing a new chapter.
Regardless, the manga is reaching its conclusion. My Hero Academia's long-running plotlines are now being finalized, 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.
As 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 by fans.
Although it is unclear when and how Horikoshi will end the series, there is much speculation about the upcoming conclusion.

When Will the My Hero Academia Manga End?
As of writing, the ending of the My Hero Academia manga is still unknown because its author, Kohei Horikoshi, is reconsidering the manga's end date.
However, given that the manga is already in its final saga and Deku is now facing AFO-Shigaraki Tomura in what appears to be their final confrontation, the ending will come very soon.
Kohei Horikoshi left an author's message (in Japanese) in the October issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which can be read in English below:
At the end of last year, I said the series would be over in 1 year, but it’s already been 10 months. I’m reconsidering it.
Based on his message, the My Hero Academia manga will not be ending anytime soon.
