Well, it seems now we know what songs we’re going to listen to when My Hero Academia season 6 finally makes its debut. From the sounds of them, they’re likely going to be a blast.
Deku, Rock Out!
The official Twitter account of My Hero Academia just recently posted a Tweet revealing both the opening and ending songs for season 6. Apparently, the opening song for that season will be “Hitamuki” by SUPER BEAVER. Fans of Naruto Shippuden and Barakamon may recognize that particular rock band. Especially since SUPER BEAVER sung “Shinkokyū” for Naruto Shippuden season 5 ending theme, as well as “Rashisa” for the opening theme song of Barakamon.
As for the ending song of My Hero Academia season 6? That will be “SKETCH” by Kiiro Akiyama. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to have much of a presence as of this writing. His only famous song to date has been “Identity”, which was the opening song for The Promised Neverland season 2. While that particular season of the anime failed to live up to either its previous season or the original manga, at least the opening song sounds nice. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of song “SKETCH” is when we finally get to hear it.
Fortunately, we won’t have long to wait before we get to hear both songs. My Hero Academia season 6 will premiere on October 1, 2022. You can catch this season only on Crunchyroll, since they’re the ones showing new seasons of this anime. We don’t know if Crunchyroll will lock it behind their shiny new paywall though. Let’s hope this isn’t the case.
My Hero Academia Season 6: Details
My Hero Academia season 6 is the 6th season of this anime, which is itself the anime adaptation of the science fantasy adventure superhero manga of the same name by Kōhei Horikoshi (Oumagadoki Zoo, Barrage). Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist, Mob Psycho 100, Bungo Stray Dogs) remains the animation studio behind this anime. Masahiro Mukai remains the director, with all production staff and voice cast returning to reprise their roles for this season. Lastly, Funimation licensed this season of the anime for its NA release, just as they have been for all previous seasons.
So what is My Hero Academia season 6 about? Well, while we don’t have an official synopsis for that season yet, we do have one from Crunchyroll on the anime as a whole. Check it out below:
“Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.”
You can catch up on all previous seasons of My Hero Academia on Crunchyroll or Funimation.
