The anime will be a baseball-themed special, and the franchise’s official Twitter account has revealed an exciting visual for the same. It includes UA students and some pro-heroes in blue and red baseball jerseys.

The storyline centers around pro-heroes from the Hero League Baseball (HLB) with two teams: Orcas led by Gang Orca and Lionels led by Shishido. To secure victory, both teams turn to UA students for help.

The rules allow the players to use their quirks freely, and I think that will create so much chaos leading to an intense and fun game. Besides this, the main attraction of the visual is the ball that looks like All Might giving a hilarious touch to the whole thing.

Maybe this is a way to show us the last bit of happiness and wholesome factors left in the show before all hell breaks loose.

As much as I would love for the happy days to not end, there’s no way I want to miss the epic battle that’s waiting for us.
