How To Watch My Hero Academia? The Complete Watch Order

My Hero Academia or Boku no Hero Academia (if you’re annoying) is a typical modern Shonen anime.

Smothered with a comedy topping and packed full of action and fantastic fighting strategies complete with a hint of romance, My Hero Academia is the perfect serving for all Shonen fans.

The animation is brilliant and gets better with each episode. The soundtrack is music to the ears if you love pop, and even if you don’t, it’s catchy and entertaining!

My Hero Academia has five seasons, three movies, two OVAs, one ONA, and two specials in total. It has a combined total of 117 episodes throughout those five seasons with an amazingly small filler percentage.

If you love all things, Shonen, do not miss out on My Hero Academia.

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

Chronological Order:
* My Hero Academia: All Might: Rising (Two Heroes Special)
* Season 1: My Hero Academia

* Season 3: My Hero Academia 3 (Ep 13-25)
* Season 4: My Hero Academia 4
* My Hero Academia the Movie 2: Heroes: Rising

Watch Order:
* Season 1: My Hero Academia
* OVA 1: (Jump Festa) My Hero Academia: Save! Rescue Training!

Hey! Thanks for taking out the time to write such a detailed comment. We have corrected the article and added a new section about the runtime. Hope you enjoy it now. 😉

En realidad note un error en el articulo, la pelicula My Hero Academia: Two Héroes viene entre la temporada 3 y 4, por que en el capitulo 20 de la temporada 3, se presenta como un capitulo especial donde la sobrina del amigo de All Might recibe una invitación para I-Expo, da a entender que es la precuela para la pelicula.

hi so i was wondering if the following order works?
Season 1
Season 2
Season 3 (until All Might recives the i-expo invite)
My Hero Academia Two Heros
Finish Season 3
Season 4
Season 5 (until now)
My Hero Academia the Movie 2: Heroes:Rising
(only watched that)
does that work for any chance?

theres a typo in the first line, it should read “My Hero Academia or Boku no Hero Academia (if you’re an elite anime/manga fan who prefers the original name) is a typical modern Shonen anime. They are both accurate, one is not annoying just because you arent on that level. its ok to be casual, but acknowledge it and understand that there is a tier of fan thats on a different level.
