The sixth season of My Hero Academia recently concluded with Crunchyroll streaming the season as it aired. A seventh TV anime season for the series has been announced. Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the series:


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.
