The new season has adapted the Paranormal Liberation War arc of Kōhei Horikoshi’s original manga, which features an all-out war between heroes and villains. As of February 11, the anime has entered the Black Hero Arc.
The new opening theme song, “Bokura no” (Our), is performed by Eve, while the new ending theme song, “Kita Kaze” (North Wind), is performed by the three-member rock band Six Lounge.
My Hero Academia’s first season premiered in April 2016 and consisted of 13 episodes. The second season, which ran for 25 episodes, premiered in April 2017, and the third season, also with 25 episodes, premiered in April 2018. The fourth season, which premiered in Japan in October 2019, had 25 episodes. In August 2020, a two-episode original video anime for the franchise was released and streamed on Funimation and Crunchyroll. The show’s fifth season premiered in Japan in March 2021, and had 25 episodes. In June 2021, a new two-episode original video anime screened in Japan.
