TOHO Animation officially announced My Hero Academia Season 6. Additionally, the upcoming story arc has been revealed.

‘My Hero Academia’ Season 5 explored the My Villain Academia Arc

My Hero Academia Season 5 started on March 27 in Japan and on streaming services Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu. The My Hero Academia Season 5 finale aired on Sept. 25. Season 5 has a total of 25 episodes, but its final story arc garnered the fan base’s attention.

It concluded the season with the My Villain Academia Arc, which expanded on the characters in the League of Villains. This particular story finds the League of Villains battling it out with the Meta Liberation Army. However, there’s noticeably less blood in the anime compared to the manga. Additionally, it didn’t give as much depth to some of the villains or the Meta Liberation Army. Nevertheless, fans are excited about the direction the anime is taking.

‘My Hero Academia’ Season 6 is officially happening

TOHO Animation‘s YouTube channel officially announced that My Hero Academia Season 6 is officially on the way. However, the teaser trailer doesn’t indicate too much. TOHO Animation hasn’t specified a release window or any exact release date.

The My Hero Academia Season 5 finale teased the next story arc’s direction. The episode ends with Izuku Midoriya’s voiceover. He explains that a “major incident will shake superhuman society.” The Paranormal Liberation Front is the next threat. My Hero Academia manga readers know that this is a massive war between heroes and villains. As a result, the manga’s current story is still feeling the impacts of this story arc.

One of the final arcs in the Rise of Villains saga is the Paranormal Liberation Front War Arc. My Hero Academia Season 6 is going to play a huge part in where the anime is headed moving forward.
