It would be simple to compare My Hero Academia to Marvel and DC superheroes in a world dominated by them. However, based on Kihei Horikoshi’s manga series of the same name, this anime standout is considerably more sincere — and frequently weird — than practically anything made by any of these companies.
My Hero Academia, free of live-action constraints, dives into the essential essence of superhero stories with all kinds of oddities – in every sense of the term. It’s no surprise, therefore, that this show continues to fight with the same tenacity that has served Izuku Midoriya well at UA High.
Season five, on the other hand, proved to be more polarizing than normal, so what does the future hold for this show? Join us here at Digital Spy as we break down all you need to know about the sixth season of My Hero Academia.
When will the sixth season of My Hero Academia be released?
My Hero Academia fans have known for a while that the sixth season will premiere this autumn, but the cover of The Weekly Shonen Jump magazine just announced a more exact release date of October 2022.

However, owing to a special screening at the show’s annual Hero Fes event, some lucky fans will be able to see the season six premiere sooner than that, towards the end of July. While portions from the show may be available online, the whole episode won’t air until October 2022 for the rest of us.
Who’s in the cast of My Hero Academia season 6?

What will happen in the sixth season of My Hero Academia?
The fifth season of My Hero Academia finished with a post-credits sequence of Class 1A staring out over a city full of supervillains. This previewed the “Paranormal Liberation War,” the next big plot coming our way.
This arc, which is based on chapters 253-306 of the manga, is practically a full-scale conflict between our heroes and a unified collection of villains and is arguably one of the fandom’s most well-known storylines.

Without giving too much away, the Heroes now have enough intelligence to fight the Paranormal Liberation Front head-on, due in part to Hawks’ cunning reconnaissance efforts. And by the conclusion of this battle, our heroes will be nothing like the ones we met at the end of season five.

Before then, Studio Bones has promised two additional OVAs for fans who can’t get enough of the show. In a nice reference to the sports shonen genre, the first one, named “HLB,” will have our heroes playing baseball. In June of 2022, keep an eye out for it.
When can I see the My Hero Academia season 6 trailer?
More new footage from My Hero Academia will most likely be released in August or September 2022, but in the meanwhile, watch the teaser above for a preview of what’s transpired in the lead-up to season six.
Amazing Fights Obviously
Endeavor’s first big bout against the enhanced version of Nomu was the season’s highlight. The fight was spectacular, and if you don’t plan on watching the entire season, you should watch it as a stand-alone.
The last major development is the incredible origin tale for Tomura Shigaraki, who appears to be My Hero Academia’s most powerful foe. His voyage began with him battling the great behemoth Gigantomachia, whom All in One had properly designated as his plan B. Then devise a strategy to eliminate the Meta Liberation Army.
The ensuing conflict is a masterwork in terms of showcasing a diverse cast of characters and encounters. Shigaraki absorbs the Meta Liberation Army after defeating their leader and takes control of the whole army at the end of the season.
