My Hero Academia Director Celebrates Season 6 with New Art

My Hero Academia has kicked off the highly anticipated sixth season of the anime as part of the action-packed Fall 2022 anime schedule, and one of the directors behind the series is celebrating the new episodes with some cool new art highlighting Izuku Midoriya! The sixth season of the series has kicked off a huge new war between the entire hero and villain rosters, and the premiere episode saw that the heroes had been formulating their plan of attack for quite a while. While he's not exactly at the center of the action yet, it won't be long before Izuku gets into a fight too.

With My Hero Academia's sixth season now off to the races and getting into even more intense fights as the new episodes continue through the Fall and beyond, CG Director Yota Ando has celebrated the occasion with an intense new sketch showing off a cool new look for Deku as he wields his Blackwhip power for what's next. Now it's just a matter of getting to see him using it in the anime, and you can check out Ando's special sketch for the young hero below as shared on the director's official Twitter account: 

My Hero Academia Season 6 is now up and running with new episodes, and you can check out the series (along with the first five seasons) now streaming on Crunchyroll. As for what to expect from the new slate, Crunchyroll begins to tease the lead in to Season 6 as such, "With Bakugo and Todoroki, Deku is doing his work-study at the office of the number one hero, Endeavor. Working hard in the best possible environment, he is growing as a hero and using Blackwhip, a new Quirk that was hiding in One For All."

The synopsis for the season continues with, "Meanwhile, Tomura Shigaraki from the League of Villains clashes against the Metahuman Liberation Army led by Re-Destro. While he's being driven into a corner fighting Re-Destro, he recovers forgotten memories of his terrible childhood and is awakened. He seizes the Metahuman Liberation Army, expands its influence, and now desires a new power for himself to destroy everything."
