My Hero Academia Season 7 Release Date

‘My Hero Academia’ season 6 released over two cours, whose debut episode premiered on October 1, 2022, while the finale broadcasted on March 25, 2023. It comprises twenty-five episodes each with a runtime of about twenty-three minutes. Directed by Kenji Nagasaki, the anime features talented voice actors such as Yuuki Kaji, Daiki Yamashita, Nobuhiko Okamoto, Kenta Miyake, Junichi Suwabe, Toshiki Mashuda, and Ayane Sakura.

As far as ‘My Hero Academia’ season 7 is concerned, we have a piece of good news for the fans. The action fantasy was renewed for its seventh installment, even before the season 6 finale was released. The news was made official through Twitter, but fans had long anticipated that the series will surely be greenlit sometime around the season 6 finale premiere. This turned out to be true since the first six installments of the anime have covered 36 volumes of Kouhei Horikoshi’s ongoing eponymous Japanese manga series, which already has 37 published volumes in circulation.

Furthermore, the release of the latest season just like every previous installment increased manga sales. But all of this was already expected since ‘My Hero Academia’ has been one of the biggest shounen anime of the last decade. Thanks to its loyal fanbase and brilliant storytelling, season 6 was rated 8.4 on Myanimelist and its reviews were overwhelmingly positive on most platforms as well. There are rumors online that the upcoming installment is also going to be a split-cour, but it is too early to confirm anything. Looking at the previous season release patterns and assuming that there won’t be any unexpected delays, we can expect ‘My Hero Academia’ season 7 to premiere sometime in Q2 or Q3 2024.

My Hero Academia Season 7 Plot: What it Can Be About?

‘My Hero Academia’ season 7 is expected to cover the Star and Stripe Arc, U.A. Traitor Arc, and the Final War Arc. While the villains were busy planning yet another all-out war on the hero society using Tomura as the key man, All Might thought of all possible countermeasures that could prevent the country from collapsing. He will eventually end up asking America’s No. 1 Hero, Star and Stripe (Cathleen Bate) for help.

Although Cathleen will be kind enough to extend all support, she will have the misfortune of potentially fighting against a rejuvenated Tomura who will try to steal her powerful quirk. While the ongoing struggle against the evil forces is already hard enough, things will get complicated when Deku and his friends learn that there is a traitor amongst them, who betrays their trust at the worst possible time.
