The Boku No Hero Academia Season 4 Opening and Ending song titles and artists have been revealed!

BLUE ENCOUNT had the following to say about performing the new opening theme, "We made the song with the thought of 'even if my own life was on the line, I want to protect the smile of the person important to me.' I think during the moment that feeling appears, that person becomes someone else's hero. We wanted to create a song that cheers on those types of heroes. This song is possibly one of the best that we have ever made as we put our whole into it. I hope that along the start of the new anime and story, your heart can catch fire with this song as well!"
Sayuri had the following to say about performing the new ending theme, "For me, My Hero Academia gives me a sort of power that always stays by my side, and because of that, it's a series that acts as a protector for many. I thought to myself that I wanted to sing that kind of song as I wrote 'A Voyage's Ballad.' I hope this ending song can be one that progresses with the story and one that people can enjoy!"
My Hero Academia's fourth season will officially premiere on October 12th in Japan. Funimation have confirmed that they will be streaming the series upon its release, but there is currently no word on a release date for the SimulDub of the series as of this writing. By the sounds of these comments, it's going to be an intense season to come.
