Visual

The visual places the My Hero Academia cast in a position that mirrors the Avengers: Infinity War promo.

Both the trailers and visual will be shown off at bookstores across Japan.

My Hero Academia‘s third season premiered on April 7. The new season focuses on the original manga’s “Forest School Trip” arc. Funimation previously announced that they will stream the dubs for the first six episodes day and date with the Japanese episode premieres, though the first episode’s dub was delayed due to production issues in Japan. The new season will run for 25 episodes.

My Hero Academia is based on Kohei Horikoshi’s manga of the same name. Kenji Nagasaki returned to direct the new season at Bones, with Yousuke Kuroda (Gundam Build Fighters, Trigun) penning the show’s scripts. Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Berserk) is in charge of character designs.

UVERWORLD is providing opening theme song Odd Future, while Miwa performs the show’s closing theme song.

New cast members for the run include:

  • Mandalay (“Telepath” Quirk): Chisa Suganuma
  • Ragdoll (“Search” Quirk): Meiko Kawasaki
  • Tora (“Pliabody” Quirk): Shinnosuke Ogami
  • Pixie-bob (“Earth Flow” Quirk): Serina Machiyama
  • Kōta Izumi: Michiru Yamazaki
  • Mustard (Quirk: Sleep Gas): Kiyotaka Furushima
  • Moonfish (Quirk: Tooth Blade): Shuhei Matsuda
  • Muscular (Quirk: Muscle Augment): Kousuke Takaguchi

Ragdoll, Pixie-bob, Tora, and Ragdoll are members of the “Pussycats” Hero team. Mustard, Moonfish, and Muscular are members of the League of Villains. Kōta Izumi is a child who lost his parents, and grew to hate Heroes.

Funimation describes the new season as:

Summer is here, and the heroes of Class 1-A and 1-B are in for the toughest training camp of their lives! A group of seasoned pros pushes everyone’s Quirks to new heights as the students face one overwhelming challenge after another. Braving the elements in this secret location becomes the least of their worries when routine training turns into a critical struggle for survival.

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
