The release of My Hero Academia chapter 326 was delayed last week, but the manga series is now set to return earlier than expected.

Over the past six months, the weekend has been dominated by My Hero Academia thanks to the ongoing anime and manga series.

However, as fans prepare themselves for what should be a dramatic final few weeks in the anime, there was a notable ‘calm before the storm’ with a sudden delay to the manga last week.

Why was chapter 326 delayed and when will the latest manga instalment launch around the world?

Why was My Hero Academia chapter 326 delayed?

The first reports of a delay originated with the Unofficial Shonen Jump News fan page on Twitter, who shared that the series would “be having a sudden break this week in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #41.”

News of the potential hiatus was then shared by the popular Twitter page ‘@Atsushi101X’, a credible MHA news page, who stated that “there will not be a chapter this week.”

Atsushi101X would then share a post from the Shonen Jump Editorial Department, stating that the delay is due to Horikoshi’s health condition. However, considering the incredible pace that the series has maintained over the past several months, fans would be understanding if Horikoshi needed a week’s break.

When will My Hero Academia chapter 326 release?

My Hero Academia chapter 326 will release around the world on Friday, September 17th.

This will be the first chapter in a significant amount of time to release on a Friday, with 326 expected to launch online in English at the following international times:

  • Pacific Time: 9 AM PDT
  • Eastern Time: 12 PM EDT
  • British Time: 5 PM BST
  • European Time: 6 PM CEST
  • India Time: 9.30 PM IST
  • Philippine Time: 12 AM PHT
  • Australia Time: 1.30 AM ACST

Have any spoilers leaked online?

Yes, after the sudden hiatus last week, the brief spoilers for chapter 326 have finally arrived online.

The chapter, titled ‘Who Are You?’ opens with All Might thinking about Deku and visiting the site of Deku’s clash with Class A.

He thinks back to a conversation with Aizawa, who stated that just by being alive, he is helping more people than he realises.

Stain then appears, points his sword at All Might and says that these are great insults to a great hero. Stain doesn’t believe that All Might talked to him at Tartarus, to which he transforms into his thin form.

He leaps at All Might, but instead pushes him into the shadows as a woman approaches the statue. She starts to cry and clean the piece, as Stain explains she was someone who All Might saved from a crumbling building.

The chapter ends with Stain saying that if All Might truly is the hero that he thinks he is, he should use the information found in Tartarus.

How many episodes are left of the anime?

Incredibly, there are only two episodes left in season 5 of My Hero Academia’s epic anime adaptation.

Season 5 episode 24, episode 112 in the series, is scheduled to release on Saturday, September 18th at 10. 30 PM BST.
