My Hero Academia's Next Season Needs to Be the Last

My Hero Academia season 6 has a handful of episodes left, but it did a lot during its run. Debuting last year, the hit shonen series took a dark turn in the fall as our heroes learned how formidable the villains have become. The My Hero Academia anime is now ready to enter the manga's final act, and the story will force Deku to put everything on the line. Of course, the My Hero Academia manga is still going, but it's becoming more apparent than ever that the end of the story is near. And if that is the case, the My Hero Academia anime needs to think about how it will hang its cape. 

While My Hero Academia is far from over as each new chapter of the manga continues to reveal surprising new details for the final battle at hand, it's clearly approaching the end of the fight between Izuku Midoriya and Tomura Shigaraki. But as the anime quickly approaches this final battle as well, one more season will be enough to properly wrap up everything that will go down in this final war within its planned slate of episodes.

Why Should My Hero Academia's Anime End? 

My Hero Academia Season 7 should be the final season mostly because of pacing purposes. There are no signs that the manga will end in the immediate future, but take a look at Season 6 My Hero Academia to see how quickly the anime can move through a year long worth of manga's fighting. The Paranormal Liberation Front War arc took over a year or so in real time with its chapter releases, but the anime was able to adapt it fully within a single cour of episodes. In fact, My Hero Academia Season 6 will leading directly right into this final battle by the time it's over. 

Not only will it likely cover this final battle within a single cour of episodes, but it really should. The My Hero Academia's not as overly impressive as it was when it first began. It's a result of a lot of different factors (the global pandemic certainly played a part in changing a lot of how every anime has been produced in the last few years), but something about the My Hero Academia also feels like it's speeding towards the end. 

But what do you think? Should My Hero Academia end with the anime's next season? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments! You can even reach out to me directly about all things animation and other cool stuff @Valdezology on Twitter!
