My Hero Academia Season 2 Review
The second season of My Hero Academia has its moments, but overall it is nowhere near as good as the first one. The show lost a lot of the steam here.
“A hero’s job is to risk his life to turn his promises into reality!“
The only storyline in this season that I genuinely cared about was the tournament. I am a sucker for anime tournaments. This was no Dragon Ball of course, but it was still widely entertaining and very enjoyable. Some of the fights were truly well executed in terms of cinematography, moves and highly interesting scenarios and outcomes.
Izuku continues his solid development, but unfortunately he wasn’t as good as he was in the first season. All Might as is as goofy and as fun as he was before, there is no doubt about it. He is one of my favorites. Bakugo has some excellent scenes with our protagonist, and the two have actually become a really interesting duo with a wonderful dynamic.
The action continues to be pretty good, but the storytelling overall wasn’t the greatest. In particular, the second half of the season was reduced to many very silly humor-oriented episodes and a couple of them were just downright sexist and overly male-oriented.
My Hero Academia definitely suffers from way too many episodes as this is the kind of show that would be better suited for just one or two shorter seasons. This way, I lost my interest going in the second round, and even though it continued to be solid, it was never as memorable nor as charming as the first one.
Overall, the second season of this anime is worth the watch for the tournament storyline. Other than that, not so much. The characterization is okay and so is the animation and some of the action, but the storytelling left a lot to be desired.
Worst Episodes: Roaring Sports Festival and Everyone’s Internships.
Best Episodes: Todoroki vs. Bakugo and Bakugo vs. Uraraka.
My Rating – 3.7

My Hero Academia season 6 officially confirmed by Bones
Only minutes after the finale aired last week, the hit anime series My Hero Academia was officially renewed for season 6 by Studio Bones.
There are countless anime titles out there that are available to watch and enjoy that can be considered as ‘popular’ amongst the community. However, there are only a few mega-series that can bring in the worldwide audience and attention that My Hero Academia can.
The hit television adaptation of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga series has dominated the anime industry ever since premiering back in 2016. Today, the season 5 finale of My Hero Academia will launch through the Crunchyroll and Funimation streaming platforms for free.
Thankfully, fans of the series will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that My Hero Academia season 6 has already been confirmed by its production company.
Has My Hero Academia season 6 been confirmed?
Only a matter of minutes after the finale aired for premium users on Saturday, September 25th, My Hero Academia season 6 was officially confirmed to be in production!
The announcement was shared by the franchise’s Japanese website, alongside a brief teaser video, see below.
However, not many fans would have been too surprised by this news, especially considering the ‘leaks’ that have been circulating online for the past 24 hours.
The first reports on season 6 were shared by Japanese news website Ryokutya2089, who stated that a “production decision” had been made for My Hero Academia season 6.
The second major report was then shared by popular Twitter page ‘Atsushi101X’, a typically credible source for franchise news, announcing that “My Hero Academia anime season 6 officially confirmed!”
The page also shared the cover from the latest edition of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which featured a brief conversation between Shigaraki and Deku.
“I’ll destroy everything,” says Shigaraki, “The war between heroes and villains is approaching” – to which Deku replies “I’ll use everything I have to stop you.”
The most obvious indicator of a sixth adventure was the availability of source material, with the season 5 finale adapting up until volume 26 chapter 257 of the original manga series.
The good news is that, at the time of writing, 31 volumes have been published in Japan alongside 326 individual chapters, meaning there should be enough source material for My Hero Academia to continue for several more seasons to come.
Then we have the series popularity; My Hero Academia remains one of the most popular anime franchises in history and Studio Bones’ most lucrative asset.
Considering the domination of the Spring/Summer anime slates and the box office success of the most recent movie, World Heroes Mission, a renewal for season 6 was all-but-guaranteed.
Now, the next question that fans may have is, what date will My Hero Academia season 6 release online?
My Hero Academia season 6 release date…
Whilst the news of a renewal was welcomed, a targeted release date for My Hero Academia season 6 was not shared. However, we can make some predictions based on the production schedule of previous broadcasts.
The length of time between seasons being announced and premiering have been as followed:
- Season 1: October 2015 – April 2016 (six months)
- Season 2: June 2016 – April 2017 (ten months)
- Season 3: September 2017 – April 2018 (seven months)
- Season 4: September 2018 – October 2019 (12 months)
- Season 5: April 2020 – March 2021 (11 months)
Whilst this does indicate that production on individual seasons is taking longer to complete, fans should note that season 5 was hampered by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – as well as production on World Heroes Mission.
Overall, fans should expect My Hero Academia season 6 to return in June 2022 on the Summer anime slate at the earliest. However, fans should note that an October 2022 release is also highly likely if the production maintains a 25-episode listing.
Not only would this give Bones enough time to uphold their production quality, but also give the manga series enough time to get far enough ahead so that another anime movie can be planned.
This would be in accordance with a report from January 2020 that stated a total of 10 films are being targeted for the franchise, with “a new movie every year.”
We are expecting more information on My Hero Academia’s future to be shared by official partners following the season 5 finale, so keep checking back in for the latest news!

World Heroes’ Mission English release…
Following the conclusion of the anime series, the attention of fans outside Japan is now turning towards the premiere of World Heroes’ Mission.
The movie will release in theatres in Australia and New Zealand on October 28th, before making its North American and European debut on October 29th.
Funimation will be screening the film with both dubbed and subbed versions.

Academia season 2 hero
My Hero Academia Season 2 Review
Note: This review covers all 25 episodes of My Hero Academia: Season 2; however, spoilers will be kept to a minimum.
The first season of My Hero Academia wowed me last year with its memorable cast of relatable characters, gorgeous animation, and heartfelt story. Season 2 builds upon those elements and takes them to new heights with incredibly rich character development, some of the most beautiful action scenes I have ever seen in animation, and an engrossing story with a villainous threat that serves as a significant improvement over Season 1.
After a relatively slow premiere, Season 2 progresses at a comfortably brisk pace with a few welcomed breathers in between, starting with the U.A. Sports Festival and then moving into the students' internships before culminating with their final exams.
The first half of the season is almost entirely focused on the U.A. Sports Festival, which takes a deep dive into the personal struggles these heroes-in-training face. In being forced to work with and against one another, issues with identity and pride come bursting to the surface, adding an entirely new dimension to several members of the supporting cast. While this is ultimately Deku's story, a fair amount of Season 2 turns the spotlight on several of the other students, some of whom, including Todoroki, Uraraka and Iida, are so well realized they at times feel as much like protagonists of this story as Deku.
That isn't to say Deku doesn't get his fair due, as All Might's adoring fan undergoes a significant transformation over the course of the season. Witnessing that growth, as he learns to control One For All and solidify his own identity as a hero, is so empowering. What truly makes Deku such an inspiring character, though, is his humility. Multiple times throughout Season 2 we see Deku put his own well-being on the line in a selfless attempt to help his friends work through their own personal issues, making for some of the most emotional and memorable moments of My Hero Academia yet.
Several fantastic new characters are introduced in Season 2 as well, including Gran Torino, the semi-senile retired pro hero who served as All Might's mentor. Not only does his dynamic with Deku make for some hilarious moments, his presence spurs some intriguing revelations about All Might's past and the history of One For All. Perhaps the most interesting newcomer, though, is Hero Killer: Stain, a fascinating villain with a wonderfully unsettling character design. Thanks to the complex worldview that motivates his horrific crimes, I found Stain to be far more interesting than the threat presented in Season 1. While Shigaraki is still very much a part of the picture, new plot revelations and the influence of Stain's vigilante efforts help steer the League of Villains in some exciting new directions.
Season 2 also does an excellent job expanding and fleshing out the the Quirk-filled world of My Hero Academia. The sports festival introduces several other U.A. High students who either didn't make it into Class 1-A or have different professional pursuits. Likewise, the internships provide a look at some of the pro heroes and how they function in society. Then, the final exams give the teachers an opportunity to flex their incredible skills, putting into perspective just how much growing Deku and his pals still need to do before they're even remotely on the same level.Production-wise, My Hero Academia is in a class of its own. Studio Bones maintains an unbelievably high bar of quality, delivering some of the most dynamic and fluid animation I have ever seen. Season 2’s tenth episode, "Shoto Todoroki: Origin," is a particular standout, serving up a dazzling display of ice and fire that collides with One For All in an explosive scene that has yet to be rivaled by any other animation sequence this year. The sound design is spectacular, with music and effects that complement and often heighten the impact of what's transpiring on-screen. The voice acting is also quite solid. While I'm partial to watching the series in Japanese with subtitles, the English dub is also very good, with standout performances from Justin Briner and Christopher Sabat as Deku and All Might, respectively. While this incredible level of quality likely means the recently announced Season 3 may not arrive for at least another year, the top-notch production values that have come to be expected from My Hero Academia absolutely justify the wait.

Come on, Ando. She immediately noted how deeply Ando's member had entered her, it was not for nothing that she was immediately scared of him.
