My Hero Academia Season 2 Gets First PV


Lace up your sneakers and start your stretches. The sports festival is coming to U.A. High!

Earler today, the official My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) anime website updated with a new promotional video. The 30-second teaser features a brief build-up, before cutting to a shot of the main characters in their team uniforms.

The new season will cover the original manga’s U.A. Sports Festival arc.

My Hero Academia Season 2 Visual 001 - 20160626My Hero Academia is based on Kohei Horikoshi’s manga of the same name. The first season of the show aired on TBS and MBS in the Spring 2016 broadcast season. Kenji Nagasaki directed the project at Bones, with Yousuke Kuroda (Gundam Build Fighters, Trigun) penning the show’s scripts. Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Berserk) provided character designs.

Funimation currently holds the exclusive international home entertainment, video on demand, merchandise, and broadcast distribution rights to the property. The company simulcasted the show in the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, and Ireland as episodes air in Japan.

Funimation describes My Hero Academia as:

There’s a new hero in town! “My Hero Academia” is a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class!

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
