Shoto Todoroki’s VA Yuki Kaji says about the visual, “His stern expression, which symbolizes the story development of the sixth season, is impressive. I like his sulky face in the ‘World Heroes’ Mission,’ but the cool look in his eyes he has this time, which says like ‘This is Shoto Todoroki!,’ is also great.”
And as for the TV anime sixth season, “The sixth season finally begins. Todoroki and his team have been engaged in numerous deadly battles so far. I thought they have fought hard enough already, but… From here, the level will go up one more notch. It’s like hell. But…in the midst of all this, it is the heroes who show us hope, and I believe that is the appeal of this work, ‘My Hero Academia.’ Please fight with us! I need your support! Further beyond! PLUS ULTRA!”
My Hero Academia Season 6 is ser to premiere on October 1 and will also be simulcast on Crunchyroll for its members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania and CIS.
