Hold onto your quirks, anime fans, because My Hero Academia is rolling back into your life for its seventh season, and it’s promising to be a blockbuster. The last season left us hanging by a thread, and the thirst for what comes next is real. Let’s dive into what we can expect and why this franchise continues to capture hearts and minds.
How My Hero Academia Became a Cultural Phenomenon
It seems like only yesterday that we were introduced to Izuku Midoriya’s struggle in a world where almost everyone has some sort of superpower—or “quirk,” as they call it. Fast forward a bit, and here we are, waiting for the seventh season. Created by Kōhei Horikoshi, the series first hit our screens and immediately became a sensation. Studio Bones saw this potential and had no hesitation in renewing it for a second season.
The series doesn’t just explore superpowers or ‘quirks.’ Rather, the anime explores how heroes are built on ideologies.
The Story So Far: A Quick Recap
By now, Izuku Midoriya has gone from a quirkless underdog to a full-fledged hero in training, targeted by villains for his newfound powers. The sixth season took us through some intense narratives. Stain, the infamous Hero Killer, reminds All Might that his real power lies in his ability to inspire, not just to punch villains into the stratosphere. Towards the finale, we saw America’s number one hero, Star and Stripe, en route to Japan, setting the stage for what seems like an epic showdown.
Release Date: The Long Wait
We know you’re itching for the My Hero Academia Season 7 release date, but hold your horses. Although Studio Bones has given the green light, they’ve been mum about the exact date. Given their packed slate—including releases like Bungo Stray Dogs and Metallic Rouge—the earliest we can expect the new season is Spring 2024.
