Now, the future of the show's music lies with composer Yuuki Hayashi. The musician is one of the hottest in Japan when it comes to anime scores. After having hit it big on Haikyuu, Hayashi has amassed an army of fans thanks to his poignant work on My Hero Academia.
Currently, the show's fifth season is slated to debut in 2021, but there is no word on when it will go down. Fans are also concerned that My Hero Academia will be forced to vacate its release date depending on how the novel coronavirus has spread. Some industries are planning for 2021 to be impacted by the virus, and that means season five may run into production and post-production snags. But for the moment, it looks like all it clear with Izuku and his next anime comeback.
