Two "My Hero Academia" special episodes will be out ahead of the sixth season's release. As it may still take a long while before the new season begins, Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump mangazine, as tweeted by @WSJ_Manga, revealed the coming of a two-episode original video anime (OVA) special.
Fans are about to see some new materials in the upcoming "My Hero Academia" special episodes. So, what this OVA special will entail?
Comicbook reported viewers are about to see a few heroes playing baseball as part of Hero League Baseball. It will be composed of two teams, Gang Orca's Orcas and Shishido's Lionels.
It will also include some U.A. students who will be pulled into the game when using quirks are already encouraged. This part of the story is reportedly from a special April Fool's Day visual that the anime team has released for some time now.
Little did anyone know it was a stealth teaser for future anime plans. Alternatively, there are no words yet on the second "My Hero Academia" special episodes and Shueisha is expected to drop new information about it at a later date.
Meanwhile, at the recent Shueisha's Jump Festa '22, it was revealed that "My Hero Academia" Season 6 would be out in the fall. The event also gave a glimpse of its new official trailer.
Anime News Network noted the new season would adapt the Paranormal Liberation War arc from Kohei Horikoshi's original manga series. It will finally feature the all-out war between the heroes and the villains in animated form.
For starters, the anime's fifth season was dropped on March 27 and covered a whopping three arcs, Joint Training, Internship at Endeavor's Agency and Villain Academia. It featured 25 episodes and was streamed on both Funimation and Crunchyroll with English subtitles.
Funimation also streamed its English dub. The sixth season also started airing on Adult Swim's Toonami on May 8.
However, in 2016, the first season of the anime premiered. It was only 13 episodes at the time until it turned to have 25 episodes each for the second and third seasons that dropped in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
The fourth season was then out in 2019 with another set of 25 episodes and released two episodes OVA for the franchise in 2020, streamlined on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
Now, two "My Hero Academia" special episodes will be out in June and stream overseas later in the summer. However, it is yet to be revealed if there will be international release plans set for after it releases in Japan.
