My Hero Academia Season 6 Trailer
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and Bleach are not the only ones that have announcements in Jump Festa 2022. My Hero Academia stage event discussed the end of the manga along with a showcase of several unpublished artworks. The icing on the cake was the My Hero Academia Season 6 teaser trailer preview. It was a short clip, lasting for only 45 seconds but it rightly set the tone for the MHA community.
As per the discussions over manga shaping up in 2022, the My Hero Academia anime series will completely change pace. We saw a suppressed MHA Season 5 as far as action is concerned. But Season 6 will be the most exciting and adrenaline filled phase to date.
Get ready for the Heroes and Villain war before October 2022!
In the meantime, catch up on the official trailer released earlier!
My Hero Academia Season 6 Poster
A new My Hero Academia Season 6 poster has come out. One can see all the main five characters in the poster who are gearing up for the comeback. The inevitable Izuku Midoriya, the explosive Katsuki Bakugo, the fast Tenya Iida, the female protagonist Ochako Uraraka and finally the hero of ice and fire Shoto Todoroki.
My Hero Academia Anime Storyline
My Hero Academia has covered 2-3 major arcs in its run. My Hero Academia Season 5 had 25 episodes covering the joint training arc with Class 1-A and 1-B. Deku has begun tapping into the potential of One for All bit by bit. The Arc also introduced Shinsou to the hero course and saw him being trained by Aizawa. The most anticipated and perhaps the most intimidating turn in the My Hero Academia world is the Meta Liberation Army Arc that saw the rise of the villains like never before.
The Meta Liberation Army has only amounted to limited but deadly movement and the heroes are preparing for the onslaught. The difference is, the Villain League has expanded to a formidable level. Tomura Shigaraki and All for One have something unforeseeable coming for the heroes who seem to be dealing with their own things.
Dabi has turned out to be Endeavour’s son Touya Todoroki. Aizawa has discovered that his dear friend Shirakumo who has believed to be dead has been turned into a kind of Nomu called Kurogiri. Tomura’s painful past as Tenko Shimura, the grandson of Nana Shimura, All might’s master has been revealed as well.
What will be My Hero Academia Season 6 plot?
My Hero Academia Season 6 should take off from where the last episode of Boku No Hero Academica Season 5 left. There’s an anticipation of a major war ahead with the Paranormal Liberation Front getting ready to attack first under the leadership of Tomura Shigaraki. The new commander has shown his prowess and appears to be a serious threat.
The My Hero Academia Movie 3: World Heros’ Mission precedes the release of Season 6 of the anime. According to the manga, the anime has adapted only the beginning of the Paranormal Liberation War Arc. The arc covers up to chapter 306 of the manga, of which only Chapter 258 has been adapted till now.
My Hero Academia Season 6 will begin with the Paranormal Liberation War in its full gory details. The Paranormal Liberation Army’s Base is greeted with an attack from the heroes but the plan backfires tremendously. Tomura Shigaraki becomes the nightmare everyone feared he would become. With so much on the line, the outcome of this all-out war will not be easy to deal with.
My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date
It was only in March that My Hero Academia Season 5 ended. It gave rise to a colossal battle between Deku and Shigaraki. The same has been announced by the various posters of season 6.
The official release date of the anime season has not been revealed by the official announcement trailer released in September 2021. However, there is no stopping in speculating the My Hero Academia Season 6 release date on the basis of past records of Season 1 to 5.
Let us have a look at how much each Season took from the time it was announced till it actually premiered:
- MHA Season 1: October 2015 – April 2016 (six months)
- MHA Season 2: June 2016 – April 2017 (ten months)
- MHA Season 3: September 2017 – April 2018 (seven months)
- MHA Season 4: September 2018 – October 2019 (12 months)
- MHA Season 5: April 2020 – March 2021 (11 months)
On the basis of this, the best shot of release for My Hero Academia Season 6 would be Autumn 2022 at the earliest. The worst scenario could be MHA Season 6 airing in October 2022.
If one had to assume that the coming season would follow the same suit as Season 5, there could be 25 episodes split into 2 cours.
The anime would perhaps adapt the rest of the Paranormal Liberation Army Arc that has around 50 chapters waiting to be adapted. Season 5 adapted around 64 chapters of the manga. It would be a fair assumption for the upcoming season to tease the Final Act Saga and leave it at a cliffhanger for Season 7.
There has however been the latest rumour from Shueisha house magazine on the release date. Announced unofficially on Weekly Shonen Jump and at the end of the last cycle of episodes, Season 6 will begin broadcast in Fall 2022.
My Hero Academia Season 6 release month has been officially confirmed. It is scheduled for Fall 2002. The same has been revealed on the website along with the latest visuals. The PV has been drawn by Yoshihiko Umakoshi, who designs the character for Hiroaka anime. It depicts the appearance of professional heroes such as Endeavor and gives the feel of an impending fierce battle – the “Full War” in Season 6.
The site doesn’t reveal the exact date. But we have speculations behind that too. Taking into account the Japanese transmission blocks, Deku and his companions might make a debut in the very first days of October 2022.
It has been officially confirmed by Weekly Shonen Jump magazine which featured My Hero Academia on its cover page. A tweet was also sent out confirming the release date! Check it out below
It is speculated that My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 1 is likely to drop in on Saturday, 1st October or 8th October 2022.
This will give the Studio Bones sufficient time to keep up with the standards of production quality. Also, the manga series will be able to cover grounds for another anime movie down the line.
As far as the number of episodes Season 6 will have there is no update. But one thing is sure that they will all be adrenaline-pumping. Deku Fans can expect information coming their way on the occasion of the Jump Festa 2022.
More trailers and updates are expected to be dropped in the coming months including possible split cour releases and more on the opening and ending themes of the anime. The fate of One for All rests on a delicate balance that The Liberation Army does not plan to leave undisturbed.
What About My Hero Academia English Dub?
My Hero Academia has been streaming on Funimation since the anime began in 2016. The English voice cast for the anime has always been well appreciated and is quite extensive. It is undoubted that an English Dub will be on the way soon after the Japanese version is released.
The anime is also updated on Netflix and is likely to keep updating on the platform.
