Why He Gets Back Up (彼は何故立ち続けたか Kare wa Naze Tachi Tsuzuketa ka??) is the twenty-first volume of the My Hero Academia series.

Cover and Volume Illustration

The title logo is orange and yellow, and is decorated by a fire pattern, which is more saturated to either side. The author’s name is written in white in the bottom left corner, and the background color is pitch black.

In the centre of the cover, Hawks stands with his back turned, looking over his shoulder with his wings spread upwards to each side, with some sort of dark blue fire radiating from around his head. A smaller Endeavor stands in front of him, his hands in fists out to the sides and his teeth clenched. He wears his updated hero costume, with large bursts of fire erupting from his eyes hips, and, most prominently, his shoulders, the tall flames following the direction of Hawks’ wings.
