[Anime Overview]
My Hero Academia TV Anime Season 6

Airing every Saturday evening at 5:30 JST!
Airing via 29 Yomiuri TV/Nippon TV Networks (some regions excluded)
Comic sales have surpassed 85 million copies worldwide! TV anime My Hero Academia is based on the popular comic by Kohei Horikoshi and is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump (published by Shueisha). The story is set in a world where roughly 80% of the total population possesses some sort of superpower known as a “Quirk”. Izuku Midoriya “Deku” and his classmates at the U.A. High School strive to become heroes who protect society and individuals from accidents, disasters, and villain criminals who would abuse their Quirks. This is the story of their growth, battles and friendships!

Deku and the others enter into the spring of their 2nd year at U.A. High School. Endeavor and the other heroes face off against a powerful band of villains led by Tomura Shigaraki in a conflict best described as all-out war. As the host of the Quirk One For All, Deku battles against Shigaraki, who has become terrifyingly powerful through advanced surgery. The terrible fight leaves them both gravely injured, and Shigaraki’s retreat seems to mark the end of the war. However, the devastation left by the conflict combined with Dabi’s confession that he is in fact the son of Endeavor, Toya Todoroki, creates public distrust toward the heroes. Additionally, a great many villains escape from prison with All For One’s help, and they wreak further havoc upon society. As the current host of the Quirk One For All, Deku’s sense of duty compels him to leave U.A. High School in order to not endanger those around him. He leaves a letter for his classmates, and then…

Deku’s one-man war begins!
