The past week has been a busy one for My Hero Academia, and it has plenty of players to thank for that. The manga dropped recently with a major update on Bakugo and Izuku as the war against Shigaraki's army continues. As for the anime, it treated fans to a look at season five during its annual Hero Festival in Japan. Of course, this means fans are on high alert for any upcoming updates, and it seems a newly registered website has some fans theorizing about a possible new anime...!
The news came to light over on social media thanks to users such as Atsushi101X. It was there netizens were informed a mysterious domain was registered over in Japan. The site itself is heroaca-ex, but the page is locked at the current moment.
As you can guess, this news was met with wild speculation from fans. Netizens were quick to theorize about a future movie or spin-off anime. After all, My Hero Academia does have quite a few side manga series out there. That isn't even including the series' prequel manga, and after putting out two very successful films, it is not hard to see why a third movie is on fans' radars.
Of course, there are other explanations for this domain that aren't as exciting. In fact, the user StoneBrosRiseUp has a convincing argument for this domain's purpose. They are confident the website is for a new My Hero Academia exhibition.
And why are they so sure? Well, the first reason is that the manga publisher Shueisha registered this domain. GMO Internet has traditionally registered web domains for My Hero Academia shows and movies in the past. The domain's name itself also lends credence to this growing exhibition theory, but not everyone is convinced quite yet. But with season five on its way next spring, any possible spin-off anime would have to wait until the main series wraps before getting its big debut.
