To make the wait for the next season a bit more bearable, a new My Hero Academia anime special was announced. This upcoming episode will be released next month. Reports of this new episode were being shared online last week, but the special was finally confirmed in the latest Weekly Shonen Jump issue.
This year’s 42nd digital issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that My Hero Academia will receive a special anime episode titled My Hero Academia UA Heroes Battle that will screen in 10 theaters in Japan from October 20-26.
The plot follows just before season 5’s Endeavor internship arc. In the middle of winter, a hot and blustery cold battle is unfolding at Heights Alliance.
Third-year Mirio Togata appears suddenly as the first-year students in Class A are bored during their ban from going outside. He brings with him the card game “Yuuei Heroes Battle,” created by the support class.
As each student picks cards and joins the fierce battle, there seems to be more to the game than meets the eye.
Furthermore, fans can look forward to a new anime project as the fourth My Hero Academia movie was also confirmed recently. This film will be set during the Dark Hero arc of Season 6.
