The heroes have suffered terrible injuries. Hawks, who was gravely injured by Dabi’s Quirk known as “Soen”, pairs up with Best Jeanist. As the two of them make their way to a certain place while fighting off villains rioting in the city, Hawks begins remembering the rough time he had with his parents growing up. Meanwhile, the hospitalized Endeavor is lost in thought. When Dabi (Endeavor’s own son, Toya) cornered Shoto, Endeavor was unable to protect him, which has left Endeavor feeling powerless. Just then, something appears in front of him…!?

[Comments from the Artist!]
“I was in charge of making the Season 6 opening theme of the TV anime My Hero Academia.
The concept of “Bokura no” is about rousing the beaten-up heroes, and this song is meant to then go together with the heroes as they struggle past their challenges.
I’m very honored to have had the opportunity to be able to write such a cool and meaningful song.
I hope everyone will listen to the song all the way through to the end.”

“Nice to meet you, I’m SIX LOUNGE. I think that the wind that blows on you in life helps push you forward and makes you grow despite your worries and hesitations, but it isn’t always a gentle breeze. With this in mind, I made the song “Kitakaze”. I think people who courageously face the headwinds of life and turn them into tailwinds while working with their friends to fight on are really admirable. I hope this song will also help push you forward. Thank you very much.”
