'My Hero Academia' season 5 has not concluded yet, but we already have season 6 predictions for the hit anime.
The saga of our beloved heroes continues with 'My Hero Academia' (Boku no Hīrō Akademia) season 5, currently airing new episodes weekly.
The anime adaptation is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. The anime is set in a world where almost everyone has superpowers (called Quirks), except Izuku "Deku" Midoriya i. Born without superpowers, Deku dreams of becoming a superhero. He gets a shot at making his dreams come true after All Might, Japan's greatest hero, shares his Quirk with him after recognizing his potential. He enrolls him in a prestigious high school where heroes train and thus begin Deku's epic adventure.
Season 5 might not have concluded yet, but some of us are already wondering what lies ahead for the anime. Let's find out if 'My Hero Academia' will return for season 6.
As of this writing, studio Bones, Weekly Shonen Jump, Shueisha, or any other company related to the production of the 'My Hero Academia' has not confirmed the anime's return for season 6 yet.
The lack of renewal might be because season 5 is still currently airing. Season 5 of My Hero Academia was released on March 27, 2021.
Don't worry because the anime seems to have a bright future ahead. Despite the lack of renewal, many anime websites have predicted the potential return of the anime next year. The predictions are based on the anime's popularity, even after four seasons have passed. Plus, there is plenty of source material left to cover more seasons.
As mentioned, even without the renewal, we are confident that 'My Hero Academia' will return for season 6. The anime has consistently aired new seasons every year after the previous season ends.
The first season of the anime premiered on April 3, 2016, and concluded on June 26, 2016.
The second season was released on April 1, 2017, and ended on September 30, 2017.
The third season premiered on April 7, 2018, and ended on September 29, 2018.
The fourth season had deviated from the regular April premiere. It was released on October 12, 2019, instead, and concluded on April 4, 2020.
The fifth season arrived on March 27, 2021, and continues to air new episodes at 5:30 AM ET every Saturday on both Crunchyroll and Funimation.
Judging from the previous schedules and the possible repercussions brought by the Coronavirus pandemic in Japan, the sixth season will likely release by Spring or in Summer 2022.
Again, this is just a prediction for now. We will update this article once we get more information.
The fifth season of 'My Hero Academia' has not ended yet, but we can safely make our predictions based on season 5's pacing and its corresponding chapter in the manga.
We've noticed that the fifth season covers two chapters per episode, while the beginning episodes were filled with recapping of events.
Based on the pacing, season 5 could end at chapter 240, but plotwise, it makes the most sense if it finishes covering the additional 12 chapters of the Endeavor Agency arc. The arc features Endeavor's family problems and concludes with a sense of resolution. That means that season 5 will likely end at Chapter 252 of the manga.
If our predictions are correct, season 6 will cover the Paranormal Liberation War arc. Currently, the longest story arc in the manga, Paranormal Liberation War act, has 52 chapters in total. Season 6 will need two cours to cover it.
In this story arc, the heroes prepare to confront the Paranormal Liberation Front after receiving a tip from Hawks and a new source of intel in Tartarus.
The heroes wage an all-out war against the villains. However, a more sinister and stronger force is coming out to put the heroes at a disadvantage. A giant-sized villain attacked the city and killed everyone on their way.
In the face of great danger, Deku's One For All powers reaches a new level in a bid to protect the lives of those he loves.
If the anime gets renewed for season 6, we expect most of the voice cast list to reprise their roles.
