Season 4 of this explosive series starts October 12 in Japan
Known for its slick animation, hit superhero anime series My Hero Academia will have been off Japanese airwaves for a year since the finale of season 3 in September 2018. Fans don’t have to wait long now for the premiere of season 4, which starts October 12 in Japan.
To celebrate the date of the first episode being announced, YTV, who broadcast the series in Japan, posted a new key visual for the upcoming season.
The key visual showcases all the important characters for the first part of season 4 in front of a post-apocalyptic landscape with All Might as a big shadowy figure! What could it all mean?
The first episode of the 4th season premiered at Anime Expo in July ahead of the October broadcast. An English dubbed trailer for My Hero Academia season 4 streamed by IGN later that month. My Hero Academia THE MOVIE Heroes: Rising, the second film from the franchise, will release in Japan on December 20.
