The end of the 13th and final episode of the first season of My Hero Academia confirmed on Sunday that the anime will be getting a second season, but did not reveal any other information. The show's staff also revealed a new visual on Sunday that features Izuku Midoriya, All Might, Tomura Shigaraki, and Stain.

TOHO also began streaming the announcement video that aired after the episode.

Bakugo and Text: I don't care about rising higher.
Todoroki and Text: I completely reject that man.
Midoriya and Text: I will also seriously go out and capture it!
Text: Again, to the other side!
All Might: A second TV anime season is coming.

The 13th and final episode featured the first appearance of the person Tomura Shigaraki calls "Sensei" (Master, vocal-only appearance), and Akio Ohtsuka (Ghost in the Shell's Batou, Metal Gear Solid's Solid Snake) voiced him in the episode. The final episode also featured the first visual appearance of Stain.

The show's second season will start from the U.A. Sports Festival arc of Kōhei Horikoshi's original manga.

The anime's first season premiered on the MBS /TBS channel network's "Nichigo" timeslot on April 3, and aired every Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Funimation is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland as it airs in Japan. The company is also streaming a Broadcast Dub.

Horikoshi launched the superhero manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014, and Shueisha published the ninth compiled volume in Japan on June 3. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and in print. The company released the manga's fourth compiled volume in English on May 3.
