My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date and Time

by Ami Dalsania

My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date and Time : The release date and streaming service for season 6 of the My Hero Academia anime series have been announced as we move into the Fall schedule.

There seem to be an infinite number of anime series available that are regarded as ‘popular’ in the culture and business. Only a handful of “mega-series” can, however, truly attract the global audience and attention that My Hero Academia can.

After its successful transition to the big screen with World Heroes’ Mission, the popular television adaptation of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga series concluded its fifth season in late September of last year.

Fans will be happy to hear that season 6 of My Hero Academia will be out on a certain date and will be available to stream on a certain service. This is good news as we move toward the Fall 2022 TV schedule.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date and Time

A few minutes after the last episode aired on September 25, 2021, it was confirmed that season 6 of My Hero Academia was being made. The news was posted on the Japanese site for the franchise, hereaca.com, along with a short teaser video for the upcoming production, which you can watch below.

The official announcement for the next season ends with the line, “Hero vs. enemy, full-scale war is coming!” This is interesting because the next season is already being billed as a major event in the series’ history.

Before the official announcement, there were many rumors that My Hero Academia would be renewed early. Several “leaks” were popular on social media. The Japanese news site Ryokutya2089 was the first to talk about season 6. It said that a “production decision” had been made for season 6.

But the news that there would be a sixth season was not at all a surprise. The most obvious sign of a sixth adventure was the availability of source material. The season 5 finale was based on the manga series up to volume 26 chapter 257, so it was clear that there was enough material for a sixth adventure.

As of September 2022, 35 volumes and 367 individual chapters have been published in Japan. This is good news because it means there should be enough source material for My Hero Academia to keep going for a few more seasons after the sixth one.

Then there’s how popular the series is. My Hero Academia is still one of the most popular anime series ever made, and it’s Studio Bones’ most profitable asset. Given how popular Spring/Summer anime was last year and how much money World Heroes’ Mission made at the box office (over $40 million), a renewal for season 6 was almost a sure thing from a business point of view.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date

The first episode of My Hero Academia’s sixth season will come out both in Japan and elsewhere on October 1.

Crunchyroll will again be the place to stream the hit anime version of Bones, and new fans can choose from the following subscription options:

“Fan” costs £4.99 a month and only lets you stream on one device.
“Mega-Fan” on Crunchyroll costs £5.99 a month and lets you stream on four devices and watch offline.
“Mega-Fan” on Crunchyroll costs £59.99 a year and lets you stream on four devices and watch videos offline.

From October to December 2022, all scheduled anime titles are shown in Japan and around the world at the same time as part of the Fall slate.

Interestingly, this ninth-month production cycle is also in line with the schedule of previous My Hero Academia broadcasts, that were announced and released on the following dates:

Season one ran from October 2015 to April 2016. (six months)
Season 2 runs from June 2016 to April 2017. (ten months)
Season 3: September 2017 to April 2018 (seven months)
Season 4 runs from September 2018 to October 2019. (12 months)
Season 5 will run from April 2020 to March 2021. (11 months)
This does mean that each season takes longer to make, but fans should also remember that season 5 was slowed down by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the making of the World Heroes’ Mission film.

This gives Bones enough time to keep up the quality of their work, and it also lets the manga series get far enough ahead so that (possibly) another anime movie can be planned. Yonkou Productions, a big name in the anime world, released a report in January 2020 that said 10 movies are planned for the franchise.
