My Hero Academia concluded the anime’s season 4 in March this year, and it has left fans hungry for more. The last episode of season 4 portrayed all kinds of emotional confusion inside the characters of MHA.

The official Twitter account of the Weekly Shonen Jump announced that My Hero Academia will get a new original video anime episode on 16th August. The new OVA is titled My Hero Academia: Survive! Do-or-Die Survival Training.
The new My Hero Academia OVA will be streamed on HULU starting 16th August. It will be available on other streaming networks such as d Anime Store, U-NEXT, dTV, Anime Hōdai, Hikari TV, etc. starting 20th August.
Weekly Shonen Jump magazine’s 35th issue first announced the new OVA’s arrival. The tweet by the magazine also contains a preview of what we can expect from the exclusive episode.
Survive! Do-or-Die Survival Training Plot
Taking place right before the Pro-Hero Licence Exam, Class 1A students are to train their survival skills.
The class is divided into two groups and sent into an underground shopping mall where a fire has broken out. Our heroes have to save fake dolls serving as humans from the fire.
However, a part of the area collapses, and Deku’s group is trapped underground. The dangerous situation starts escalating as other areas collapse, electricity goes out, and they face a dwindling supply of air.
Deku and his team must find a way to collaborate and use their quirks so that they can escape the situation. In this training-gone-wrong situation, time is of the essence.
