The creator of My Hero Academia has released an adorable new drawing featuring images of Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, and Katsuki Bakugo!

With each new chapter of the manga, it has become apparent that the climax of the end of the My Hero Academia manga is now closer than ever.

Series creator Kohei Horikoshi admitted last winter that the series will most likely end within a year if everything goes according to plan, meaning the final chapter will be released in 2022.

Each new chapter of the manga is so much sadder. It means that each successive time brings us closer to the last day when we will see each of the youthful heroes in action.

With all the youthful heroes currently embroiled in the latest war against villains, there are few chances to see them in a more placid state.

This is especially true for Izuku’s main three, Bakugo and Shoto. Each of them weighs in considerably before the series ends.

Thankfully, Horikoshi has taken a fresh look at the three to commemorate a new collaboration with Shueisha’s Jump GIGA magazine’s current issue. You can see it below:

In Japan, My Hero Academia launched a special collaboration with Nagano’s Nanka Chiisakute Kawaii Yatsu. This is due to the release of the latest Jump GIGA issue to promote the official anime release of the new series as part of the spring 2022 anime timetable.

Horikoshi commemorated this new team-up with a special team-up of his own.

This showcased his main trio of young heroes with the beloved characters of Nagano’s web series. It’s a lighthearted look for the hero three, which is thankfully a long way from the seriousness of the manga’s final battle.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Release Date Coming

My Hero Academia Season 6 has been in the works for a while, according to the anime’s production staff.

Finally, we received a piece of production news about the series ahead of the company’s spring season.

The news comes from the official My Hero Academia Twitter account. The Japanese account shared the album cover for a season six screenplay.

Fans were also assured that the show’s cast is currently working on new episodes.

Official Twitter announcement.

The tweet reads:

“The dubbing of the sixth season has already started. The sixth season will feature combat on a grander scale than before. Look forward to seeing the cast’s appearances when the show airs this fall.”

As you’d expect, anime-only fans are both elated and concerned about the teaser. My Hero Academia has seen some epic battles so far, but it looks like MHA Season 6 will top them all. If you’ve read Kohei Horikoshi’s series, you’ll realize how true that comment is.

What are your thoughts? What do you think of the look of the youthful hero trio? Which of the three is your current favorite? Let us know what you think in the comments!
