My Hero Academia is weeks away from its return, and season six promises to be wild for the show. It’s been over a year since we’ve heard from our favorite heroes, but Studio Bones has been keeping a close eye on the tape from behind. And now, one of the show’s producers is opening up about the show and which characters we should watch out for in Season 6.
The message comes from Yoshihiro Oyabu, one of the producers of My Hero Academia. They recently sat down with Animedia to promote the series, and that’s where Oyabu mentioned which characters he wants everyone to pay special attention to this fall.
It turns out that the two characters in question are Mirko and Twice. According to Oyabu, both characters have great scenes at the start of the sixth season, and Mirko is treated to very good lines in the first episodes of the season. As for Twice, Oyabu says the character could be a villain, but Season 6 shows a more heartwarming side to the man, even in the midst of battle.
Of course, those who have read the My Hero Academia manga know what awaits them. Kohei Horikoshi’s manga gets darker and darker as the episodes go by, and Season 6 is set to tackle one of the most intense episodes yet. War is on the horizon, and the latest My Hero Academia promos prove just how brutal both sides can be. And with Class 1-A on the battlefield, there’s no way the gang will emerge from this raid unscathed.
If you are ready to experience the return of this anime, My Hero Academia is scheduled for October 1st. As usual, Crunchyroll will be streaming the series, and you can subscribe to it. Seasons 1-5 are currently streaming, subtitled and dubbed.
