While the world may be in turmoil, at the very least we have more episodes of My Hero Academia to look forward to shortly. The very successful anime series, which is based on the manga series of the same name by Khei Horikoshi, is still going strong after five seasons, with the sixth season set to broadcast in 2022.
Following the “Paranormal Liberation War” storyline from chapters 253-306 of the manga, the Heroes will engage in all-out combat against the Paranormal Liberation Front in this season's premiere.
It's one of the most acclaimed arcs of the continuing series so far, and it's eagerly anticipated by fans following a rather divided fifth season of the anime adaptation of the manga. Here's all we know so far about My Hero Academia Season 6, including the premiere date in 2022 and a trailer for the season.
The Premiere Date for My Hero Academia Season 6
My Hero Academia will return in the fall of 2022, which is a long time away, but not impossible. The announcement was made as part of the Jump Festa event in December, which is an exposition and celebration of all things manga and anime in their many forms.
The release date for Season 6 of My Hero Academia has been confirmed by the Jump Festa announcement, but the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has lately featured the show on its cover, with the more exact release date of October 2022.
The My Hero Academia Season 6 Trailer Has Been Released
At Jump Festa, the My Hero Academia series also debuted a new Season 6 trailer. Following Season 5's relative quiet before the storm, the brief video previews the forthcoming conflict. Watch the clip below.
With epic battles and tragic angst, the highly anticipated “Paranormal Liberation War” arc represents the culmination of all that has gone before it. Take a look at the trailer below.
Toho and Bones have created a total of 113 episodes of My Hero Academia, which are all accessible to stream on Funimation in either subtitled or dubbed forms. Toho and Bones have produced a total of 113 episodes of My Hero Academia so far.
Adolescent protagonist Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who has long dreamed of being a hero with abilities, is given superpowers by legendary hero All Might at the start of the series. From there, he begins training at the University of Arizona High School, which is considered the best Hero Academy in the country.
This is merely the beginning. In the fifth season of the show, the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army joined forces to establish the Paranormal Liberation Front. Post-credits scenes featured Class 1A peering over a precipice towards a metropolis populated with criminals, which marked the conclusion of Season 5.
“The catastrophic incident that would shatter superhuman civilization will finally begin” in October 2022, according to the Associated Press. Watch this brief clip of Tomura Shigaraki, the head of the Paranormal Liberation Front, squaring up against Deku while we're waiting for further information.
Season 5 of the famous anime series “My Hero Academia” concluded last autumn, but fans are already wondering about Season 6. They will have to patiently wait until October of this year before Season 6 starts, but fans are undoubtedly in for a trip, based on how things left off (via Funimation).
Season 5 finds Class 1-A in their work-study programs working alongside Japan's pro superstars. The series protagonist, Izuku Midoriya (a.k.a. Deku), pairs up with his classmates Shoto Todoroki and Katsuki Bakugo to train from Japan's currently-ranked No. 1 hero, Endeavor, at his hero agency.
Meanwhile, the League of Villains and its commander Tomura Shigaraki are charged with destroying Gigantomachia. Eventually, the League defeats the huge enemy, and Tomura joins forces with the Meta Liberation Army to establish the Paranormal Liberation front. This has some “MHA” fans quite anxious coming into Season 6 as Tomura has suddenly grown considerably more strong.
Additionally, fans are apprehensive about Season 6 for another reason, and it has nothing to do with the anime's impending narrative.
Season 6 Has a Lot of People Worrying About the Animation Quality
As “My Hero Academia” Season 6 approaches, fans of the show are becoming increasingly anxious, and the reason for this has everything to do with the program's animation style. To bring the manga series to life on screen, the studio Bones has been in charge since Season 1 (according to Anime News Network).
Even though the series has garnered generally positive reviews thus far, fans are now apprehensive that the animation in Season 6 may not be up to pace. In a Reddit discussion, the user u/Otherwise Egg 1756 expressed anxiety regarding the future of Bones' translation of the manga.
They complained that “recently, the animation quality has appeared to have declined from prior seasons,” and referred to certain “awkward shots” and the usage of a single frame in one scene as examples of this. Additionally, the user said that there was a change in quality during the opening credits of Season 5 compared to the previous seasons (a.k.a. “OPs”).
Other people, such as u/naul119, were quick to agree, writing, “I completely agree.” “They need to stop releasing movies in conjunction with the seasons. The quality has suffered, as can be seen in the episodes and the openers.”
The anime's current opening credits, according to u/Fedexhand, have become more substandard, to the point where “I guess that Bones no longer cares about them or that they do not seem to be that significant to them.”
In the words of another user identified as u/DPTONY, “Season 6 contains a lot of moments in the manga that I enjoyed; if they muck up their animation, I'm going to be pissed.” Unfortunately, viewers will have to wait until October to see how Season 6's animation compares to the previous season.
