After making a splash as one of the more most popular anime series of 2016, it has been confirmed that Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) will be making its return for a second season in April 2017 for the Spring Anime Season.
After successfully making it into the world famous U.A Academy for heroes and facing real life villains, the second season of the anime is set to pick right back up with Kōhei Horikoshi‘s original manga in the U.A. Sports Festival arc.
The original cast and staff from the first 13 episode season this past April have already been confirmed to return for the new season and we’d all be lying to ourselves if we said that we weren’t over the moon.
Horikoshi launched the superhero manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2014, and Shueisha published the 11th compiled volume in Japan on November 4. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and in print. The company released the manga’s sixth compiled volume in English on November 1.
These heroes have no doubt saved us from that action gap left behind by a few recently deceased action anime. As the manga continues on full speed ahead we can only hope the anime follows suit. Check back for more updates as they come.
