If you have been waiting for more My Hero Academia, then you will get your wish granted in just a few months. According to new reports, it seems like the anime's third season is expected to debut in April 2018.
The news began spreading on social media after manga translators picked up a tip online. Sites like Moetron shared reports that My Hero Academia is eyeing an April 2018 premiere, but Bones Inc. has yet to make an official announcement about the release. ComicBook will keep you up-to-date on the anime's comeback as the new years grows nearer.
The reported schedule does follow a pre-existing pattern set by My Hero Academia. The show premiered back in April 2016 and ran until that June. A second season was quickly announced and got released in April 2017. If traditional holds tight, then fans should expect My Hero Academia’s third season to drop in April 2018 unless Bones Inc. experiences setbacks.
When the anime does return, My Hero Academia will pick up with its 'School Trip' arc. The story will follow U.A. Class 1-A as they go on a summer training trip once their first semester at school comes to a close. The students will be brought to the Forest of Magic Beasts where they must hone their powers under the supervisions of Aizawa and pro-heroes The Pussycats. However, the League of Villains are still moving forward with its mission, and Izuku will find himself pitted against the baddies when they come to kidnap one of his classmates.
For those who aren't familiar with My Hero Academia, the manga by creator Kohei Horikoshi began publishing back in July 2014. Bones Studios adapted the series into an anime in 2016, and the series has quickly become a phenomenon. My Hero Academia takes place in a world full of people with quirks, which you might recognize as superpowers. Except Izuku Midoriya doesn't have one.
Izuku Midoriya has always wanted to be a hero, but he was born without a quirk. When the world’s leading superhero All-Might chooses Izuku to be his successor, the boy’s world is turned upside-down as he gains a quirk, a new school, and a set of very dangerous enemies.
