It’s all okay now. Why? Because season four of My Hero Academia is almost here!
My Hero Academia is the story of a near-future world in which 80% of the population has a superpower called a “Quirk.” Some Quirks don’t amount to much, but for those blessed with powerful abilities, they can work with the government as an officially sanctioned hero after rigorous training and testing. Young Izuku Midoriya dreams of becoming a hero like All Might, the world’s top hero, and My Hero Academia is the tale of his dream coming true.
After what feels like an eternity of waiting (season three ended in September 2018), My Hero Academia returns with brand-new episodes simulcast in Japan and the U.S. beginning in October. Crunchyroll has released a subtitled trailer showing what we can expect when the Quirk-powered action returns this fall.
In the new season, the absence of All Might has rocked the hero world, and villains are fighting each other for control of the underworld. Shigaraki in the League of Villains and Overhaul of the yakuza clash for dominance. Meanwhile, Deku is training alongside the heroes known as the Big Three, the school’s top students we met at the end of the third season. Does that mean we’ll finally get to see them in action?
Also recently announced is a second feature film for the series, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, which comes out in Japan at the end of this year.
Funimation has announced SimulDubs for the new season released the same day as the new episode’s release in Japan, so you won’t miss any of the action in your preferred way to watch. You can also find the series subbed on the same day it airs in Japan on FunimationNow, Hulu, and Crunchyroll.
The new season of My Hero Academia begins October 12, 2019. Go beyond! Plus Ultra!
