My Hero Academia returned to Japanese TV yesterday. Funimation’s hosting a “day and date” simuldub for the series, meaning their dub for the new season also kicked off yesterday.
My Hero Academia is based on Kohei Horikoshi’s manga of the same name. Kenji Nagasaki is directing the project at Bones, with Yousuke Kuroda (Gundam Build Fighters, Trigun) penning the show’s scripts. Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Berserk) is in charge of character designs.
Funimation currently holds the rights to both seasons of My Hero Academia. They describe the new season 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.
In Season 2, it’s Quirk versus Quirk as our young heroes face off in the ultimate showdown! The world-renowned U.A. Sports Festival begins now.
The first season of the show aired on TBS and MBS in the Spring 2016 broadcast season. Funimation currently holds the exclusive international home entertainment, video on demand, merchandise, and broadcast distribution rights to the property. The company streamed simulcasts for the series in the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, and Ireland as episodes air in Japan.
Funimation started streaming a dub teaser for the new season last month. You can check it out below:
