Hey Alexandra,

You can watch the first three seasons of My Hero Academia on Netflix & Crunchyroll Officially. We’ve added the watch links above for some more streaming services as well. Hope this helps!

Your Watch Order is Wrong.
Two Heroes comes between Season 2 & 3, not between season 3 & 4
You also mention [Hero Notebook], which is before the 1st episode of Season 2 as a summary of season 1, & [All Might Rising], which is a prequel to the movie [Two Heroes], but takes place before season 1, but don’t actually include them in the watch order. It would be included in your “Two Heroes Specials” but as it’s specifically intended to be watched before the movie, to introduce you to characters not in the series it shouldn’t be AFTER the movie.

You also don’t have the Do-Or-Die-Survival Training, which is understandable because it came out after this post, but takes place between episodes 12 & 13 of season 3. I’m not sure where the best watch order for that is, but personally put it after season 3, before season 4, mostly because there’s no other specials there & it’s easy.

But
