My Hero Academia Animator Hypes Season 6 With New Character Art

The sixth season of My Hero Academia kicked off on the ground floor by immediately having the heroes of UA Academy fight for their lives, with Shigaraki leading a massive army known as the Paranormal Liberation Front. With the anime adaptation recently returning with new episodes, the heroes are staring down the barrel of a gun as their victory in the War Arc hasn’t brought them much comfort and Hero Society is hanging by a thread. Now, for the latest Shonen season, an animator has brought a fresh take on the likes of Midoriya, Bakugo, and Uravity.

Fortunately, the aforementioned trio were all able to escape the War Arc with their lives, though the two aspiring male crime fighters suffer some serious injuries thanks to their fight against Shigaraki. Impaled by All For One’s tendrils, the hot-headed hero, now codenamed Murder God Dynamight, recovers in a hospital, while Deku does the same thanks to breaking all of his appendages by pushing One For All to its limits. Due to the fallout from this attack, Midoriya will have to step things up with the latest season six opening theme, which gives us our first look at “Dark Deku” as he uses all of his abilities in an attempt to hold his civilization together.

My art school

My Hero Academia animator, Akiya Mayoco, took the opportunity to share new art from the “Trinity” of UA Academy’s Class 1-A, with the relationship between the three appearing to change astronomically as Deku is willing to take some drastic measures, not only to save Hero Society but protect his friends from the danger that is All For One:

While the anime adaptation is reeling from the War Arc, the manga series is in the throes of its Final Arc, with this being touted by Kohei Horikoshi as the final battle of the heroes and villains of the Shonen franchise. Keeping this in mind, it should be interesting to see how many seasons and/or movies are left My Hero Academia has in the tank.

What do you think of this new art that showcases the best of UA Academy? How do you see the sixth season of My Hero Academia coming to an end? Feel free to let us know in the comments or call me directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk about all things comics, anime and the world of Class 1-A.
