Brace yourselves for a new anime episode titled “My Hero Academia UA Heroes Battle,” set to grace the screens of 10 theaters in Japan from October 20th to October 26th.
But wait, there’s more! If you’re across the ocean in the United States, you won’t have to wait long either. The official English Twitter account for the My Hero Academia franchise has announced a world premiere of this episode with an English dub at this year’s New York Comic Con event on October 13th at 8:00 p.m. EDT at the Javits Center’s Empire Stage.
Now, for those of you who prefer streaming, Crunchyroll has got you covered. They’ll be streaming the episode in various regions including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and many more.
So, what’s the episode all about? Well, picture this: the stage is set at the UA dormitory, just before the Endeavor Internship arc of season 5. It’s winter, and things are about to heat up as a thrilling card game called “Yuuei Heroes Battle,” created by the support class, takes center stage. First-year students from Class A, itching for some excitement during their ban from going outside, jump into this fierce battle. But there’s a twist – the game might hold secrets and surprises that none of them saw coming. Who will emerge as the ultimate victor in this epic showdown?
For those who’ve been keeping up with the My Hero Academia anime, you’ll know that the sixth season premiered in October 2022 and had a whopping 25 episodes. But guess what? There’s even more to look forward to because a seventh season is on the horizon.
Do you know that if you like the “Rascal Does Not Dream” light book series, you’re in for a treat? The first full video for the highly anticipated second film in the sequel anime project, “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid,” was just shown at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair:
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane. The anime first graced our screens in April 2016 with a 13-episode season, and the excitement only grew from there. The subsequent seasons brought us more action and drama, and the franchise even treated us to three fantastic films – “My Hero Academia: Two Heroes,” “My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising,” and “My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission.”
And here’s the cherry on top: an event for the sixth season of the My Hero Academia anime revealed that a fourth film is in the works. This film promises an original story that will unfold around the same timeline as the TV anime, exploring the challenges of a society in turmoil.
So, gear up for an action-packed October and beyond with My Hero Academia. Whether you’re hitting the theaters in Japan, catching the English dub at New York Comic Con, or streaming the episode on Crunchyroll, there’s plenty of heroics to look forward to in the My Hero Academia universe.
