My Hero Academia Season 6 - What We Know So Far

The super-popular anime "My Hero Academia" is a fantastic series about a young boy named Izuku Midoriya, voiced by Daiki Yamashita, who simply dreams of one day becoming a superhero. The story takes place in a world where people all overdevelop "Quirks," which are superpowers unique to each person. Unfortunately for Izuku, he doesn't have a Quirk, but that doesn't stop his determination, and soon enough he finds himself on the path to achieve his dream. 

Throughout the series, Izuku finds a mentor in the superhero All Might, voiced by Kenta Miyake, who helps train Izuku and get him accepted into a top hero school. Izuku quickly finds himself facing off against the League of Villains and other enemies as he tries to protect his friends, allies, and innocents from their drive for power and control.

"My Hero Academia" is produced by Bones animation studio and based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. The television series is directed by Kenji Nagasaki and written by Yōsuke Kuroda, and Yoshihiko Umakoshi does character design. So far, "My Hero Academia" has had 5 seasons, with Season 6 already on its way. 

Here's everything we know so far about "My Hero Academia" Season 6.

Has a release date for My Hero Academia Season 6 been announced?

Luckily for fans of "My Hero Academia" who are hoping for more episodes after Season 5, your wish has come true, as Season 6 was announced shortly after the final episode of the 5th season aired in Japan, teased through a voiceover in the final moments of the finale. The new season will continue the story of Izuku and his friends as they battle the rising threat of the villains, which was further teased in a short promo found on the show's official Twitter.

Unfortunately, as of the time of writing, we still do not know the exact premiere date for "My Hero Academia" Season 6. However, we do have some information that clarifies the general release window for the upcoming season. In December 2021, ComingSoon.net reported that Season 6 was given a fall 2022 release date during the Jump Festa '22 anime and manga convention. Manga news Twitter account @MangaMoguraRE further speculated a more precise release window of October 2022 for the new episodes. An actual release date will likely be announced sometime closer to the end of 2022. 

What characters will be featured in the anime's sixth season?

Like all previous seasons of "My Hero Academia," Season 6 will center around the main character Izuku, now a well-trained fighter working alongside many other heroes. Some of the other main characters include Katsuki Bakugo, a fellow hero who grew up with Izuku as his childhood friend turned bully before learning to respect and work with him, Ochaco Uraraka, a talented hero who has romantic feelings for Izuku but hasn't revealed them, as well as other friends and teammates of Izuku like Tenya Ida, Shoto Todoroki, and Eijiro Kirishima. The young heroes have plenty of interesting Quirks, with Katsuki having the ability to create explosions at will, while Ochaco can remove the effect of gravity from both living and non-living things by touch. 

Along with the heroes in training, "My Hero Academia" spends a lot of time focusing on teachers like All Might, with Shota Aizawa, also known as Eraser Head, one of the students' favorite mentors. Other teachers at the school are Hizashi Yamada, a.k.a. Present Mic, Nezu, or Mr. Principal, and Nemuri Kayama, also known as Midnight. Of course, there are also the villains of "My Hero Academia," led by the powerful Tomura Shigaraki, while Dabi, Himiko Toga, Atsuhiro Sako, and more all play key roles.

The trailer for My Hero Academia Season 6 gives us a taste of the upcoming season

The fifth season of "My Hero Academia" covers the Endeavor Agency and Meta Liberation Army story arcs of the manga, leading into what will be the Paranormal Liberation War arc in Season 6. Throughout Season 5, it is revealed that the League of Villains, who have been a major issue for the heroes for a while now, is joining with the Meta Liberation Army, a radical group of superpowered people, to become the powerful and destructive Paranormal Liberation Front. 

The group is led by Tomura, who is quickly gaining more and more power, aiming to eventually take Izuku's One For All Quirk. Based on the short teaser of Season 6, it looks like there is a major battle coming between Izuku and Tomura, which has been building up for quite a while. In order to stop the rising threat, the heroes must all come together and train hard so that they can defeat Tomura and the Paranormal Liberation Front once and for all. That also appears to be reflected in a short trailer for the new season, which dropped in December 2021.

Fans of the long-running series can also expect further development in side stories of "My Hero Academia" in Season 6, with many important relationships getting stronger in the midst of the chaos, while others will reach their breaking point and fall apart.
