Crunchyroll Confirms Release Date For My Hero Academia OVAs

My Hero Academia is getting ready for a deadly serious battle this fall, with the sixth season adapting the story of the War Arc, which will see all of the heroes taking on the vast legions of the Paranormal Liberation Front led by Shigaraki. Before this new season arrives, however, fans will have the opportunity to dive into two new specials that have already aired in Japan, as Crunchyroll has confirmed when the baseball and Endeavor Agency specials will hit the net.    

The Official My Hero Academia Twitter Account shared the big news that the two new animated specials would be arriving on August 1st on Crunchyroll, giving fans a nice refresher on the major characters of the series before they are placed into quite the hairy situation in the War Arc this fall:

The official description for Hero League Baseball, or HLB, reads as such:

"HLB stands for "Hero League of Baseball" – it is a baseball league founded by pro-heroes who love baseball!

It's game day! The last game of the HLB championship is between Gang Orca and Shishido's two rival agencies. They form a team ("Orcas" and "Lionels") to compete. In the world of HLB, there is no rule – using their quirks is of course accepted. However, just when the game is about to finish, they are interrupted by a villain. Who will be the winner of HLB!?"

On the flip side, the official description for "Laugh, As If You Are In Hell!" reads as such:

"Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki participate in an internship under the No.1 hero, Endeavor's agency.

One of their tasks these days is to find a villain ("Smiley") who draws doodles in the city. However, since the urgency is so low, they let other pro-heroes solve this case.


One day, Smiley draws a doodle on Endeavor's house! Being furious, Endeavor himself and the 1-A trio go out to get the villain. However, Smiley's quirk turns out to be something ridiculous but powerful... It is to make anyone who looks into his eyes laugh hysterically! Can the team capture the villain and stop laughing!?"
