MHA Season 7

Checkout a rough translation of the comments below:

Daiki Yamashita:

In the 6th season, I tried to know what was going to happen when I read the scripts for each episode, but there were so many things that happened that made me feel a lot of emotions. In that context, it was a story that recaptured the meaning of the title “My Hero Academia”. I really felt the friendship and growth of Deku and the other members of Class 1A, which gave me more strength.

I would like you to look forward to seeing the boys, girls, and adults who have grown through the 6 seasons and progressed further in the 7th season. We will continue to perform with PLUS ULTRA energy, so please continue to support “My Hero Academia”.

Nobuhiko Okamoto:

First of all, thank you very much for watching the 6th season. For those of you who have been watching “My Hero Academia” up until now, I’m sure there have been a lot of surprises. The key scenes for Bakugou were when he sacrificed himself to save Deku in episode 122 (Bakugou Katsuki: Rising), and when he apologized to Deku in episode 136 (Deku vs Class 1A). The only difference was that in episode 122, his body moved without thinking. On the other hand, in episode 136, he spoke out of his own free will.

As for myself, I think I was able to express my apology while acknowledging Deku. In the last episode, there was a new character and a direction that led to the next season. Deku who had been moving toward the dark side, came back to the light. In a sense, this is a fresh start. Please look forward to the 7th season.

 My Hero Academia Season 6 started airing from Oct 1, 2022, with the second cour starting from Jan 7, 2023.
