What to expect from Season 6?
My Hero Academia Season 6 will surely be a historical turning point in the series. The heroes will fight off against the villains in a full-scale war. Many characters will finally get their chance to showcase their strengths in the upcoming battles.
Deku and Shigaraki have only grown to become very strong in the recent arcs. Boku no Hero Academia Season 6 will likely lead up to their fated encounter. Fans have been waiting for it for several years now. Lots of things are at stake as neither side can afford to lose this upcoming war and, we can expect some major injuries along the way.
The previous season ended with the villains enhancing their forces. Having said that, the heroes would not be caught unaware since Hawks is a double agent in the Paranormal Liberation Front. Without giving spoilers, one can say this next season is bound to have several twists and turns. Other than that, we believe that the series will undergo some massive changes.
The OVA Poster
While waiting for the next season, fans can look forward to the upcoming OVA, entitled “HLB”. The official Twitter page released the poster a little while ago. The poster will feature Pro Heroes and U.A. students competing in a baseball game. The poster seems to indicate the following team divisions:
The Orange team includes Kaminari, Mineta, Ojiro, Sato, Mt. Lady, and Shishido.
The Blue team includes Kirishima, Jiro, Shoji, Amajiki, Fat Gum, and Gang Orca.
We all can easily notice that the main characters, including Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo, are missing in there. Nevertheless, fans can totally expect their presence in the OVA which will most probably release in June this year.
More About My Hero Academia
Humans are slowly originating “quirks” or superhuman abilities that allow them to shapeshift and manipulate elements. While 80 percent of the humans have some unique quirk, the rest do not have any powers, like Izuku Midoriya.
Izuku always dreamt of being one of the greatest heroes of all time. He also idolized one of the strongest heroes of all time, All Might. Despite his lack of quirks, Midoriya is persistent and has the heart of a hero as he always saved people. One day, Izuku ended up bumping into All Might. While most people are born with quirks, All Might’s abilities are transferred, and upon meeting the young boy, the hero chose him as his successor.
While the young boy had to face months of exhausting training to use the quirk, he finally learned to utilize his abilities and joined one of the most prestigious hero schools, UA.
The story of Boku no Hero Academia follows Midoriya’s journey as a hero, and his efforts will ultimately influence the world’s fate. Thanks for reading!
