Answering a post above about Deku as a Christmas tree, I'm assuming.
Yeah I should have employed the customary arrows.
God Ochako looks so cool in that sketch
Of course she's santa...
Who else would make a sleigh and its raindeers fly?
Or make presents for a world's population worth of kids light as a feather?
So... I've read that, apparently, in an interview in July, the author said the series is roughly halfway through. Granted, it can become longer than expected, as it already did, but I trust his predictions more than, say, Oda's, and knowing that there are "only" about 4 years, it makes me a bit sad. I've read this series basically since the beginning (when I've caught up it was around chapter 6, the one where Izuku break his finger to launch the ball; btw this one is the second best series I've "accidentally discovered"), and it'll probably feel strange having seen it from their humble beginnings to what it has become, hoping it will keeping on improving util its well-deserved end. (sadly, very, very few mangas has managed to do that, and most of them by taking long breaks)

And once it ends, it will leave behind a fine universe for fanfic writers to work with in order to get their weekly MHA-dosage of story.
That is a silver lining at least.
40-45 volumes seems like a reasonable number for a series like MHA. If Horikoshi can plan ahead well enough, he should be able retain the same quality to the end. Long series go to shit because after a while authors have no fucking idea of what to do with their own story.
Also in recent news the movie just opened #8 at the Mexican box office, earning 6.8 million Mex which when translated to U.S. currency is around 330, 600 dollars.
Huh I wonder if the next movie will be as successful as this one.
Speaking of breaks what I find really sad is that eventually MHA will have more volumes & chapters than Hunter x Hunter & that series started over a decade before MHA.

So uh....big spoiler, although unconfirmed.
Gigatomachia looks like he is about to break AFO out of prison.
I'd rather having him end it on his own terms than get dragged into Franchise Zombie status. Plus then he can try his hand at another series, and it would be interesting to see what else he can come up with.
I remember him saying he originally planned for the series to be around 30 volumes, but that definitely isn't happening now.
I'm not complaining, and I figure it's probably normal for these things to get away from what the writers originally had in mind.
Me too, and I think he can safely ends it on its own term, though mainly because One Piece, Shonen Jump's most selling title (and Japan is literally obsessed with the series), is probably going to end after my hero.
Yeah, he said that he always comes with new ideas that wants to implement, I also remember him mentioning something special for Sero and Mina, the latter can be in this very arc, though I don't find a particular "personal setup" for her (like in nearly everyone, not noone, in this arc, which I think is what makes it less interesting than others arc)
In terms of backstory, I don't think Mina will get anything outside of what we saw in Kirishima's flashback. She's a pretty uncomplicated person.
Probably, but a character focus moment doesn't need to be a backstory. However this show usually give some kind of character arc/exploration whenever someone a moment of spotlight, most of the time in an important fight
Whole mess o' shipping pics.
The cynical answer is that it will be milked by the editors because its popular.
Those were cute, but I didn't get the Iida shirt thing. Was he being shipped with Izuku and Ochaco at the same time?
The Midoriya and Uraraka ones are my favorite. :)

When the baby burped fire, my first thought was that… someone else was the father.
Jirou's present for Yaomomo was the best.
I wouldn't mind something like Ochaco's and Izuku's inevitable kid being able to breath fire though. I'd be kind of nice.
Double post, but generally how much control do the writers have over when their series end?
Depends, they are ultimately the ones who write and draw, but they have to be reviewed and approved by the editors first before being published.
I think that control increases the longer they go, given how many Too Good to Last series get cancelled early for lack of popularity vs long runners that keep going well after decline is obvious.
Unless something really dramatic happens, the pacing seems off. They're supposed to attend UA for three years, and we're not all the way through the first year.
