A few weeks ago it was announced through the Japanese magazine Weekly Shonen Jump that the Kōhei Horikoshi franchise would soon receive an important announcement. An approach that, possibly, would lead us to know definitively when the fifth season of the television series would be released. In this way, it has been thanks to the official Twitter of My Hero Academia where it has been revealed, on the occasion of the Jump Festa 2021, that the new iteration of our favorite heroes will be released on March 27, 2021.
An announcement that, in addition to being accompanied by a new promotional image, has left us with a first trailer in which we have been able to appreciate the new directions of the season. One that possibly carries with it a lot of controversies since it was during these events, the arc in which the class of 1A and 1B faces, where the public that is reading the homonymous work did not stop positing negatively in front of the work of Horikoshi. We will see how BONES faces this new task, the animation studio that possibly will take up the series and will present us, in spring, what is the approach chosen for this new installment.
We remember that the fourth season of My Hero Academia ended on April 4 with a total of 25 episodes that include the Pro Heroes arc and that, little by little, it was approaching the events that are currently happening in Horikoshi’s work. A title that already has 28 volumes published in Japan and whose repercussion has reached Spain at all levels as Planeta Cómic publishes its homonymous work while Selecta Visión has acquired the rights to its animated adaptation and Crunchyroll with the rights to its simulcast broadcast. A set of three companies that support, by active and passive, one of the most popular and important franchises in recent years.
