Born 1986 in the prefecture Aichi, Horikoshi first attracted attention in the second half of 2006 when he entered Shueisha's 72th Tezuka Award for Newcomers with his one shot "Nukegara" and made it to the final six, where he gained himself an "Honorable Mention".
Various short stories in Shueisha's Akamaru JUMP followed over the years until he published his one shot "Oumagadoki Doubutsuen" in issue #2/2010 of Weekly Shounen JUMP. In the same year he serialized this one shot on WSJ, so having his first series, but it failed.
After some time he published a new one shot in Jump Next! and in 2012 he serialized it, Sensei no Bulge, in WSJ but it went bad. In this years he gained some popularity also worldwide, like in USA and in Europe.
In 2014 he serialized Boku no Hero Academia in WSJ, basing the series on some concepts from an old one-shot, and briefly the series became a very big hit, generating a franchise and winning some national and international prizes.

He was assistant of TANAKA Yasuki.

Some of his assistants were: MIYOKAWA Masaru (OD), SHIBATA Yusaku (OD), NEDA Hirofumi (OD and BnHA), HORIE Ryuu (BnHA) and AKIYAMA Yoco (BnHA).

He has a sister.
