The makers have confirmed My Hero Academia’s season 7. That shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise though. As the story told in Kōhei Horikoshi’s original manga hasn’t been completed yet on screen. That means the biggest question around season 7 isn’t whether it’s happening or not.
So, it’s whether this will end up being the final ever season of My Hero Academia. Given that the anime has almost caught up with the manga. So, this does seem likely, although Studio Bones might want to stretch things out a bit due to the franchise’s colossal success.
What to Expect from My Hero Academia Season 7?
My Hero Academia season 7 will likely begin with the Star and Stripe arc after the USA’s No. 1 hero decided to come to Japan upon All Might’s request. As per the information revealed by studio BONES, Romi Park is set to voice Star and Stripe. She has previously voiced Hange Zoe from Attack on Titan and Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist.
In the upcoming season, Tomura Shigaraki will inherit All For One completely in three days. Thus, All Might had to request assistance from foreign heroes. Also, Star and Stripe instantly decided to come to his aid. However, Tomura is prepared to fight back.
As he would do anything to accomplish All For One’s next goal: steal Star and Stripes, Quirk, and New Order. Following that, studio BONES could animate two other arcs from the manga, namely the U.A. Traitor arc and the Final War arc. However, to what extent the story will be animated will depend upon the number of episodes that get listed.
My Hero Academia Season 7 Release Date
While the release date of My Hero Academia Season 7 has not been officially announced. Also, fans can expect it to be released in Spring 2024, based on the release schedule of past seasons. The gap between each season has been approximately one and a half years. However, if they follow this trend, the upcoming season will likely be released around the same time.
However, there’s also a possibility that the release schedule may be different this time because the anime has almost caught up to the manga. With not enough source material for a 2-cour season. If the production team decides to wait for the manga to finish first, then fans might have to wait a little longer for the new season.
Alternatively, they may decide to produce a single-core season with 12 or 13 episodes, which would allow them to release the new season earlier. Whatever the case may be, fans are eagerly waiting for the release of MHA Season 7.
