Funimation has announced that season 4 of My Hero Academia will premiere on Saturday, October 12, 2019! Subtitled simulcast episodes will stream day and date with the Japanese broadcast on both FunimationNow, in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland and Australia, and Hulu. Also, FunimationNow will also stream SimulDub™ episodes.of the top-rated anime series.
Now, if you are unfamiliar with the franchise, or if you want a refresher, you can binge watch sub and dub episodes of the three previous seasons now on both FunimationNow and Hulu or on home video. “My Hero Academia” Season 3 Part 2 was released earlier this month in both DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo and is available now in the Funimation Shop.
Then to supplement your viewing experience, AfterBuzz TV has an aftershow with a fantastic panel, including yours truly, that broke down each episode – we covered about four episodes on each aftershow. We loved talking about this anime! I will admit at first the show was good but did not quite grab me, but by the end of season one I was hooked! This is definitely a show worth watching!
“My Hero Academia” continues to be one of the most awarded anime series each year since its debut in 2016. During 2018, which included the first theatrical release for the franchise, its numerous honors included IGN’s “2018 People’s Choice – Anime of the Year” award, #1 on Anime News Network’s “Best of 2018 Mega Poll,” #1 on Gamespot’s “Best Anime Shows and Movies of 2018” and five awards at the 2018 Crunchyroll Awards including “Best Film of the Year.”
Season 4 Synopsis
The villain world teeters on the brink of war now that All For One is out of the picture. Shigaraki of the League of Villains squares off with Overhaul of the yakuza, vying for total control of the shadows. Meanwhile, Deku gets tangled in another dangerous internship as he struggles to keep pace with his upperclassman—Mirio.
My co-host Veronica Valencia saw a preview of season 4 at Anime Expo and here are her thoughts via AfterBuzz TV.
Here are our thoughts regarding the upcoming season:
Veronica Valencia (@itsmeveronica_v) “I’m looking forward to seeing more of Mirio and how characters will handle certain situations with the stakes being much higher.”
Kari Lane (@karidlane) “This show keeps getting better and better! I am looking forward to the darker direction the next season will have.”
Ollie Drennan (@OllieDreamer) “I’m super excited to see our beloved characters venture into dark territory and meet new heroes and villains with new quirks!”
