My Hero Academia is a series written by Kohei Horikoshi that is all about a world filled with heroes. It follows the journey of Midoriya Izuku along with his classmates from Class 1-A. Their return for the sixth season is just right around the corner. After the cliffhanger of Season 5, it is only natural to get excited to see our heroes battle it out. But what exactly should we expect in season 6? Here are 9 things to look forward to in the upcoming season of My Hero Academia.
An all-out war
Season 6 will cover the Paranormal Liberation War arc. In this season, a war between the heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front will occur. The Paranormal Liberation Front was formed when two villain groups merged, the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army. Given their power, all of the heroes and UA students gathered to face this imminent threat. This will be a war to remember since we will see every hero we have ever encountered fight together. Will they be able to stop the Paranormal Liberation Front?
Class 1-A team-up
Since UA students are coming together, expect to see Class 1-A join the fight. Some Class 1-A students will have major developments and highlights in the upcoming season. Endeavor’s interns – Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki – will team up once again to fight a major villain. Other students like Uraraka, Tokoyami, and Kirishima will also have their time to shine. Furthermore, the rest of Class 1-A will have to gather all their manpower to stop a certain villain. Now then, are you excited to see Class 1-A join the fray?
Deku’s Quirk: One For All
It was revealed last season that Deku’s Quirk, One For All, has more to it than it seems. Since it is a transferable Quirk, it also gives the Quirks of the past users to the current host. One of the Quirks, Blackwhip, revealed itself unexpectedly last season – causing Midoriya to rampage. But don’t worry, Deku has way more control over his newfound power this upcoming season. You can look forward to more fights with Deku using Blackwhip. It is also inevitable for more Quirks to reveal themselves in the future – so you can look forward to that.
A stronger Shigaraki Tomura
As the successor of All For One, Shigaraki Tomura will grow stronger in the next season. Thanks to Dr. Garaki, Shigaraki will become a force to be reckoned with. Shigaraki will obtain power that can rival even All Might himself. He will show no mercy as he wreaks havoc and destroys everything in his path. Will the heroes be able to stop him once and for all? Or will Shigaraki emerge victorious? We can only wait to find out.
Deku vs. Shigaraki
Of course, a showdown between these two is inevitable. The successor of One For All will finally battle the successor of All For One. Despite Shigaraki’s new power, we must not underestimate Deku’s prowess and capabilities. After all, One For All is a power made to defeat All For One. But still, it is up to Deku if he can unleash the hidden strength of his Quirk. Despite that, we can be sure that we will see them fight in the next season.
Mirko, the No. 5 Hero, will get her time in the spotlight
We have seen pro heroes like Endeavor, Hawks, and Best Jeanist in action – but we have yet to see Mirko. Mirko is the Rabbit Hero who has the Quirk: Rabbit – giving her the attributes and abilities of a rabbit. She is a tough gal, making her Number 5 among all the heroes. Her hand-to-hand combat and speed will finally be shown in the upcoming season. All in all, Mirko will play a pivotal role in this war.
Surprising plot twists and reveals
As another season greets us, so do more surprises and plot twists. The series does a great job of building up and foreshadowing its reveals. This season is no exception since it contains many revelations that can shock you to the core. We refuse to spoil them for you, so just see for yourself when the season airs. These revelations will hype you up even more for the next seasons.
Ready the tissues because you will say goodbye to a few people next season. Given that there will be a war, it is highly likely for people to meet their demise. Both sides will suffer casualties as a result of their battles. Some may come out with a few injuries, and some may not come out at all. Given that, we must prepare ourselves to part with a few characters.
When a war occurs, major change always follows. Depending on the outcome, change can either be beneficial or catastrophic. The same goes for the series, the hero world will reach a turning point after the war. Whether it is good or bad will depend on who emerges victorious in the upcoming season. Will the world be finally at peace? Or will the villains dominate it? We shall have to wait and see.
And those are all the main things to expect in season 6! Despite everything on this list, there are still many things that will shock you when the season airs. The events of this season will have a major impact on their world. So tell us, are you excited for the next season? While waiting, you may stream My Hero Academia on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
