Along with the fifth season finale of the My Hero Academia anime, we now have confirmation of the sixth season. The official series Twitter account confirmed that a sixth season is on the way. A short preview announcement video was also shared.
The sixth season will adapt the “Paranormal Liberation War” arc of the My Hero Academia manga by Kohei Horikoshi. As the eighteenth story arc in the manga total, “Paranormal Liberation Arc” will see a full on war between the heroes and villains we have followed in the series so far. This arc in the manga runs from chapter 253 to chapter 306. The anime’s first season originally started airing in April 2016 and also included its 100th episode.
