It’s all too easy to compare My Hero Academia to Hollywood behemoths like the Marvel and DC heroes who dominate the screen. However, based on Khei Horikoshi’s manga series of the same name, this anime standout is far more heartfelt — and often strange — than almost anything produced by either of these studios.
My Hero Academia, free of live-action constraints, taps into the core essence of superhero storytelling with all kinds of quirks — and we mean that in every sense of the word. It’s no surprise, then, that this show continues to fight with the same tenacity that has served Izuku Midoriya well at UA High.
However, season five proved to be more divisive than usual, so what lies ahead for this show’s future? Here at Digital Spy, we’ll be revealing everything you need to know about My Hero Academia season six.
Release Date for My Hero Academia Season 6
My Hero Academia will return in the fall of 2022, which is still a long time away. The announcement was made as part of the Jump Festa event in December, which is a manga and anime expo and celebration. While no specific date was announced as part of the Jump Festa announcement, My Hero Academia was recently featured on the cover of The Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, with the more specific Season 6 release date of October 2022.
Some lucky fans, however, will be able to see the season six premiere earlier, at the end of July, thanks to a special screening at the show’s annual Hero Fes event.
While clips may appear online, the full episode will not be available to the rest of us until October 2022 – and even then, no date has been set. We will keep you updated as soon as we learn more!
My Hero Academia season 6 cast
My Hero Academia has a massive voice cast, but it’s unclear who will return and who will be replaced in the upcoming season. With that in mind, here are the main Japanese and English voice actors we expect to return for season six:
• Daiki Yamashita (Japanese); Izuku Midoriya; Justin Briner (English)
• Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese); Katsuki Bakugo; Clifford Chapin (English)
• All Might (Japanese) — Kenta Miyake; Christopher R. Sabat (English)
• Ayane Sakura (Japanese); Ochaco Uraraka; Luci Christian (English)
• Japanese Tenya Ida — Kaito Ishikawa; J. Michael Tatum (English)
• Tsuyu Asui (Japanese) — Aoi Yuki; Monica Rial (English)
• Ryo Hirohashi — Minoru Mineta (Japanese); Brina Palencia (English)
• Momo Yaoyorozu (Japanese) — Marina Inoue; Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)
• Fumikage Tokoyami (Japanese) — Yoshimasa Hosoya; Josh Grelle (English)
• Yuki Kaji (Japanese); Shoto Todoroki; David Matranga (English)
However, those are only the characters we know – and there is plenty of room for the world to expand even further. After all, more villains, as well as students and teachers, are very likely to appear.
The plot of My Hero Academia Season 6
The fifth season of My Hero Academia concluded with a post-credits scene of Class 1A looking out at a city full of supervillains. As a result, we know that season six will most likely focus on the Paranormal Liberation War, a major event in their universe.
The villains will band together to form a super-coalition of evil as they wage war on our heroes.
It’s also one of the most anticipated and celebrated manga comic stories, so there are plenty of reasons to get excited! The Paranormal Liberation War takes centre stage in chapters 253-306 of the graphic novels for those who haven’t read them yet. Without giving too much away, the Heroes now have enough information to confront the Paranormal Liberation Front head-on, thanks in part to some sly reconnaissance work from Hawks. But be warned: by the end of this fight, our heroes will not be the same as they were at the end of Season 5.
However, Studio Bones has previously promised two new OVAs for fans who can’t wait for new episodes. The first, “HLB,” will feature our heroes playing baseball in a cute nod to the sports shonen genre. It will be available in June 2022.
Season 6 Trailer for My Hero Academia
At Jump Festa, My Hero Academia also debuted a Season 6 trailer. Following Season 5’s relative calm before the storm, the short trailer teases the upcoming war. The highly anticipated “Paranormal Liberation War” arc is the culmination of what has come before, and it features some legendary battles as well as heartbreaking angst. Watch the trailer below…
Toho and Bones have created 113 episodes of My Hero Academia, which are all available on Funimation in either subbed or dubbed formats. The series begins with a gift of superpowers from celebrated hero All Might to teen protagonist Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who has always wanted to be a hero with superpowers. He then begins training at UA High School, the country’s top Hero Academy.
Of course, this is just the start. Five seasons later, the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army have merged to form the Paranormal Liberation Front. Season 5 concluded with a post-credit scene in which Class 1A looks over a cliff toward a city teeming with villains. “In October 2022, the major incident that will shake superhuman society will finally begin.”
