posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of the second season of the My Hero Academia television anime announced on Friday that the first episode of the second season will be a recap episode of the first season, with some scenes of new footage. The first episode is titled "Boku no Hero Academia Hero Note." The concept of the episode is based on the meticulous notebooks that protagonist Izuku Midoriya keeps that detail other heroes' abilities.
While Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine had revealed in December that the second anime season adapting Kōhei Horikoshi's original My Hero Academia manga was slated to premiere in April, the site lists the premiere as March 25. However, the first episode after the recap episode will premiere on April 1.
The new season's new cast members include Wataru Hatano as Hitoshi Shinsō, Azu Sakura as Mei Hatsume, Saki Ogasawara as Itsuka Kendō, Kōji Okino as Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, Miho Masaka as Ibara Shiozaki, and Kōhei Amasaki as Neito Monoma.
Kenji Nagasaki is returning to direct the series at BONES, with Yousuke Kuroda returning to write and oversee the scripts. Yoshihiko Umakoshi is again serving as the character designer and chief animation director, and Yuuki Hayashi is also returning to compose the music. The main cast from the first season is also returning.
The new season will cover the U.A. Sports Festival arc of Horikoshi's original manga.
