On May 8, 2022, it was announced that two new original episodes of My Hero Academia with a summer baseball theme would be produced. The episodes will be available this summer 2022 on anime streaming sites (such as Crunchyroll).
For those of you who don’t know, June 16 is “Hero Day” in Japan. To celebrate this special day, two original episodes of My Hero Academia will be available for pre-screening in theaters from June 16.e to the 19e† The two episodes will be available in only 10 cinemas in Japan and those details will be announced at a later date.
A poster visual for the two special episodes has been revealed:
Fans Want MHA UA Students To Play Baseball With Quirks
Episode 1 title has been revealed as My Hero Academia: Hero League Baseball. The original story is about a group of baseball-loving professional heroes who make up Hero League Baseball.
The Gang Orca-led Orcas and the Shishido-led Lionels are both aiming for first place this season. Realizing that they need some help to win, both teams decide to contact the UA students for support.
There is a “special rule” that allows players to show off their individuality by using their idiosyncrasies in creative ways while playing baseball. Get ready to see your favorite heroes dressed in baseball uniforms!
Who will win? Team Orca VS Team Lionel
Fans are already speculating about which team will play eternal rivals Bakugo and Deku. The poster clearly shows Kirishima in Team Orca, suggesting his best friend Bakugo is on to be team.
This would mean that Deku is probably in Team Lionel. Fans look forward to seeing Bakugo make exploding baseballs with his idiosyncrasy. Others say Deku’s fastball will be something to watch out for.
If Bakugo and Deku can’t play baseball, they will be all disappointed. Who are you going to fight for, the orcas or the lions? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
Some baseball themed My Hero Academia fan art has already surfaced in anticipation of the special episode.
The second episode will not be a continuation of the first, but also a completely new original story. The story, title and image of the second episode will be announced by Shueisha at a later date.
These two episodes should hold fans until the My Hero Academia Season 6 release date in the fall of 2022.
In April 2016, the anime’s 13-episode first season premiered. A 25-episode season premiered in April 2017. A third season premiered in April 2018 and lasted 25 episodes.
