Nobuhiko OkamotoAfter Weekly Shonen Jump revealed last week that Nobuhiko Okamoto will be taking on the role of Katsuki Bakugo in the series My Hero Academia, they’ve now nudged things along a bit further to keep the interest going. That comes in the form of a clean look at the character design adaptation from Umakoshi for Katsuki Bakugo where we get a black and white version and the full color version. Okamoto has a long list of shows that’s been involved in, including serving as the lead in Ace of the Diamond as well as being in Bakuman and Assassination Classroom among others. He also earned a lot of attention for his role in A Certain Magical Index as Accelerator. He can currently be seen in Starmyu and Seraph of the End.

The previously announced cast includes Daiki Yamashita as Izuku and Kenta Miyake as All Might.

The series is set to be directed by Kenji Nagasaki, who handled the recent Classroom Crisis series. Yousuke Kuroda is working on the scripts while Yoshihiko Umakoshi is in charge the character designs.

Originally starting back in the summer of 2014, after creator Kouhei Horikoshi Barrage series ended, My Hero Academia is one of the more well-received books in the English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump.

Horikoshi received a Tezuka Award Honorable Mention in 2006 after publishing several short stories in Akamaru Jump. His first serialized work was Oumagadoki Doubutsuen back in 2010.

Plot concept: What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless? Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn’t got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny…
