“MY HERO ACADEMIA” ANIME SEASON 3 ANNOUNCED
It has been confirmed that the third season is greenlit for production! “My Hero Academia” rapidly took over the top rankings and created a huge fan-lists around the world due to its eccentric, action-packed superhero story by Kōhei Horikoshi.
With the end of its second season this weekend the series will be going for a third season which was announced in the 44th issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine of 2017, and so the fans were excited with the announcement about the series comeback. But for now, there’s no word on the staffs, casts, and release date.
The appearance of “quirks,” newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.
Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!
Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.
