New key visual, cast member, and Japanese broadcast schedule revealed for ongoing smash-hit anime
A new key visual (below), a new trailer (below), a new cast addition, and the Japanese TV schedule have all been revealed for the fourth season of My Hero Academia, the ongoing TV anime based on Kōhei Horikoshi's hot-blooded shonen manga about a class full of super-powered teens training to become the next generation of costumed crime fighters.
In My Hero Academia, voice actor Shinichiro Miki plays Sir Nighteye (pictured below), All Might's former sidekick whose quirk, "Foresight", allows him to see a person's future.
The original My Hero Academia manga is serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Viz Media. The My Hero Academia TV anime is directed by Kenji Nagasaki and features animation production by BONES. Crunchyroll currently streams the first three seasons of the series, and describes the story of My Hero Academia as follows:
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 enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
My Hero Academia Season Four will broadcast in Japan on Yomiuri TV and Nippon TV and their affiliate networks on Saturdays during the 17:30 time slot (5:30 PM JST) beginning on October 12, 2019.
