My Hero Academia Anime Gets 3rd Season

My Hero Academia Boku no Hero Academia Season 3

The final episode of My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) revealed on Saturday that the series will be getting a third season. It will cover the forest school trip arc for the original My Hero Academia manga written by Kouhei Horikoshi’s. More information about the upcoming season will be revealed at a later date.



MyAnimeList’s Rewrite Team describes the story:

One day, a four-year-old boy came to a sudden realization: the world is not fair. Eighty percent of the world’s population wield special abilities, known as “quirks,” which have given many the power to make their childhood dreams of becoming a superhero a reality. Unfortunately, Izuku Midoriya was one of the few born without a quirk, suffering from discrimination because of it. Yet, he refuses to give up on his dream of becoming a hero; determined to do the impossible, Izuku sets his sights on the elite hero training academy, UA High.

However, everything changes after a chance meeting with the number one hero and Izuku’s idol, All Might. Discovering that his dream is not a dead end, the powerless boy undergoes special training, working harder than ever before. Eventually, this leads to him inheriting All Might’s power, and with his newfound abilities, gets into his school of choice, beginning his grueling journey to become the successor of the best hero on the planet.

The original My Hero Academia manga was published in 2014, and the first season of the anime series aired in April 2016. Season 2 just recently finished airing, premiering again in April and ending last Saturday. If this trend continues, Season 3 is likely to come in April 2018; but this information is NOT confirmed.
