It would be easy to compare My Hero Academia to Marvel and DC superheroes in a world dominated by them. 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 — 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.
My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date
My Hero Academia will return in the fall of 2022, which is still a long way off. The announcement was made as part of the Jump Festa event in December, which is a manga and anime expo and celebration. While a more specific release date was not 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.

My Hero Academia season 6 plot
The fifth season of My Hero Academia ended with a post-credits scene of Class 1A looking out over a city full of supervillains. This teased the “Paranormal Liberation War,” the next big storyline coming our way.
This arc, which is based on chapters 253-306 of the manga, is essentially a full-scale war between our heroes and a united group of villains and is easily one of the fandom’s most well-known stories.
Without giving too much away, the Heroes now have enough information to confront the Paranormal Liberation Front head-on, thanks in part to Hawks’ cunning reconnaissance work. And by the end of this battle, our heroes will be nothing like the ones we met at the end of season five.

Before that, Studio Bones promised two new OVAs for fans who can’t get enough of the show. In an acute nod to the sports shonen genre, the first one, titled “HLB,” will feature our heroes playing baseball. In June of 2022, keep an eye out for it.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Trailer
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 eagerly anticipated “Paranormal Liberation War” arc brings everything together, with legendary battles and heartbreaking angst. Take a look at the trailer below…
Toho and Bones have produced 113 episodes of My Hero Academia so far, all of which are available on Funimation in subbed or dubbed formats. The series begins with celebrated hero All Might bestowing superpowers on teen protagonist Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who has always dreamed of being 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. The League of Villains has merged with the Meta Liberation Army to form the Paranormal Liberation Front, five seasons later. Season 5 came to a close with a post-credit scene showing Class 1A peering over a cliff at a city teeming with villains. “In October 2022, the major incident that will shake superhuman society will finally begin.”
While we wait, enjoy this brief clip of Tomura Shigaraki, the villainous leader of the Paranormal Liberation Front, battling Deku…
