Mangaka Kouhei Horikoshi already has a lot of awards under his belt, and it looks like he added another one. The My Hero Academia official twitter page announced that the mangaka recently won an award in South Korea. This is Seoul Media Comics’ “2018 Manga Creator Award”.
They hand the award out to the most active and popular manga creators, and with My Hero Academia’s success in Korea, it’s no surprise Horikoshi won. The tweet also pointed out that the mangaka is the first non-Korean to win the prestigious award. In addition, they also awarded him a key made of pure gold for winning the prize.
Now that’s winning in style, so congratulations Horikoshi-sensei!
