My Hero Academia’s anime has reached a major turning point in its sixth season as it kicked off the story’s final act with its final episodes, and the voice actor behind Izuku Midoriya has broken their silence as they kick off this major new arc of the season! The latest installment of the series officially set the stage for the Black Hero arc (popularly known as the “Dark Deku arc” among fans), and now Deku himself has left UA Academy with the intention of making out as many villains as possible. to change gear. all alone as he tries to master the final elements of One For All’s power.
It’s the biggest status quo shift in history My Hero Academia‘s sixth season to date, and is the biggest change to the anime yet. It’s such a huge change for the start of the arc that the voice behind Deku, Daiki Yamashita, opened up about the start of the arc in a commentary with Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine (as spotted by @RukasuMHA on Twitter). Yamashita notes that he doesn’t read the manga before recording and hopes fans pay close attention to keep up with all the changes.
What does Deku’s voice actor think of the Dark Deku Arc?
“Now that the War Arc and its epilogue have ended, we are once again reminded that this story is really about One for All and All for One,” Yamashita began. “The flames of this karmic relationship grow wider and eventually the whole world is drawn into this battle. And now Deku feels the weight of being One for All’s successor, both because of what happened in the war and what he did in the future. conversation has been revealed with the former wielders, that he will be the last to have the quirk. So to avoid anyone else getting involved, he left UA alone.”
Yamashita continued and then teased what comes next: “His classmates must be thinking ‘Why didn’t he say anything?’, but since Deku is stubborn, he has decided to follow the path he thinks is best. I read the manga and finally you only know things when you read the script but I think in the end this brings in a lot of different story elements to the point where missing a single episode can leave the viewer lost in understanding what’s going on. you watch each episode as they come out. That’s why I will also strive to convey all his feelings with every scene.”
