My Hero Academia Anime Gets 3rd Season

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Final episode of 2nd season aired on Saturday

The 25th and final episode of the second season of the My Hero Academia television anime series confirmed on Saturday that the anime is getting a third season. The new season will cover the forest school trip arc from Kōhei Horikoshi's original My Hero Academia manga. The staff will reveal more information about the new series at a later date.

The second season premiered in Japanese with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and Hulu on April 1, and FunimationNow is streaming the English dub. The anime's first 13-episode season premiered in April 2016.

Viz Media publishes the manga in the English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump and in print in North America, and it describes the manga:

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called "Quirks" at age four? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn't got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny...

Horikoshi launched the original manga series in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in July 2014. Shueisha published the manga's 15th volume on September 4, and will release the 16th volume on November 2. The 13th and 14th volumes of the manga both bundled OVAs earlier this year.
