My Hero Academia Season 6 Premiere Wows Audience Following Early Screening

The wait for My Hero Academia season six continues, but it will not be long before the show makes its return. This October will mark the hit title's comeback, and it will not be one to miss. After all, My Hero Academia promises to undertake a high-stakes arc when it returns in over a month, but some lucky fans did get the chance to view the premiere early. And as it turns out, the debut episode blew expectations out of the water. 

For those who don't know, My Hero Academia puts on various live events in Japan, and one of the biggest is Hero Fes. The event takes place each summer, and now, lucky attendees are starting to speak about what they saw online. Many of these fan accounts are in Japanese given the event's location, of course, but several recaps have gone live in English courtesy of shibuyasmash and xprathamx on Twitter.

According to these threads, the first episode of season six is strong out of the gate as it isn't a filler recap. We will avoid discussing any spoilers here, but for manga readers, they can rest assured knowing the premiere dives into canon content from the get-go. Everyone from Izuku to Mirko and even Shigaraki's doctor appears to complicate things.

Of course, another topic My Hero Academia fans have asked about is animation, and these accounts have been quick to reassure fans. According to xprathamx, the animation in episode one is "definitely a huge step up from [season five]" and feels "more polished and clean".l This sentiment was shared by others online who were able to watch the event in person. After all, Hero Fes only premiered episode one to in-person attendees, so only select fans got to see the whole shebang.
