The release date for Season 6 of the hit animated series ‘My Hero Academia’ has just been confirmed in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
There are countless anime titles available to watch and enjoy that can be considered “popular” among the community.
However, there are only a few “mega-series” that can grab global audiences and the attention My Hero Academia can.
The successful TV adaptation of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga series reached its fifth finale at the end of September after a broadcast dominated by the merging of story arcs.
Thankfully, fans of the series will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that My Hero Academia season 6 has already been confirmed and a release date has now been shared.
Confirmation of My Hero Academia season 6 …
Just minutes after the finale aired for premium users on Saturday, September 25, My Hero Academia Season 6 has been officially confirmed in production!
The announcement was shared by the franchise’s Japanese website, alongside a brief teaser video, see below.
However, few fans would have been too surprised by this news, especially given the “leaks” that have been circulating online for the past 24 hours.
The first reports on season 6 were shared by the Japanese news site Ryokutya2089, which said that a “production decision” had been made for season 6 of My Hero Academia.
The second major report was then shared by the popular Twitter page ‘Atsushi101X ‘, a generally credible source for franchise news, announcing that “My Hero Academia anime season 6 officially confirmed!”
The page too share the cover of the corresponding edition of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which featured a brief conversation between Shigaraki and Deku.
“I’m going to destroy everything” said Shigaraki, “The war between heroes and villains is approaching” – to which Deku replies “I’ll use everything I have to stop you.”
The most obvious indicator of a Sixth Adventure was the availability of source material, with the Season 5 finale scaling up to Volume 26, Chapter 257 of the original manga series.
The good news is that at the time of writing, 31 volumes have been released in Japan alongside 326 individual chapters, meaning there should be enough source material for My Hero Academia to continue for several. additional seasons.
Then we have the popularity of the series; My Hero Academia remains one of the most popular anime franchises in history and Studio Bones’ most lucrative asset.
Given the dominance of the spring / summer anime slates and the box office success of the most recent film, World Heroes Mission, a renewal for Season 6 was almost guaranteed.
Now the next question fans may be asking themselves is when will My Hero Academia season 6 release online?
My Hero Academia season 6 release dateâ¦
While news of a renewal was well received, a targeted release date for My Hero Academia season 6 was not shared at the time.
However, this week, Weekly Shonen Jump magazine featured My Hero Academia on its cover, which included information this season 6 will be released in October 2022.
This is in line with the production schedule of previous My Hero Academia broadcasts, which were announced and released on the following dates:
- Season 1: October 2015 – April 2016 (six months)
- Season 2: June 2016 – April 2017 (ten months)
- Season 3: September 2017 – April 2018 (seven months)
- Season 4: September 2018 – October 2019 (12 months)
- Season 5: April 2020 – March 2021 (11 months)
While this indicates that production on individual seasons is taking longer, fans should note that Season 5 has been hampered by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – as well as production on World Heroes Mission.
Overall, fans should expect My Hero Academia Season 6 to return on Saturday, October 6.
Not only would this give Bones enough time to maintain the quality of their production, but it would also give the manga series enough time to go far enough that another animated film could be planned.
This would be in line with a January 2020 report which stated that a total of 10 films are targeted for the franchise, with “one new film every year.”
World Heroes’ Missionâ¦ release in English
After the animated series ended, the attention of fans outside of Japan turned to the premiere of World Heroes’ Mission.
The film hit theaters in Australia and New Zealand on October 28, before debuting in North America and Europe on October 29. Funimation screened the film with dubbed and subtitled versions.
As of this writing, a streaming release has not been confirmed but is expected to land in February 2022 on Funimation. You can read more information here.
