My Hero Academia season 6 poster teases a big confrontation

Shigaraki vs. Deku, who goes out victorious?


My Hero Academia season 6 gets its first poster, which teases the long-awaited confrontation between Izuku Midoriya (aka Deku) and a newly-appointed Shigaraki Tomura.

Season 6 will cover what is commonly praised by fans as one of the best and also longest bows in Kohei Horikoshi‘s manga: Paranormal Liberation Front War arc or also commonly known as the War Arch. One of the reasons that contributes to the popularity of this arc is the fact that almost all the characters that have appeared in the series so far contribute in one way or another. Season 5 ended with our group of hero trainees being called to participate in the operation with the professional heroes. It also left us with a tease of what’s to come, showing the heroes ready to launch their attacks on the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army.

Another reason that makes this bow so popular is the build-up to the fateful confrontation between nemesis Deku, the current One for All user, and the series’ main antagonist Shigaraki, who also had his tragic past revealed at the end of last season. This impending confrontation, which has fans so excited to finally look at the screen, was teased in poster My Hero Academia‘s official Twitter account recently shared. The poster puts both our main character and the leader of the villains next to each other, both staring forward as if they are facing each other before their fight, or alternatively the future and the confrontation to come. Both will be stronger than ever, Izuku has discovered he can use the quirks of former One For All users, and Shigaraki has had some scary experiences with him that will make him more dangerous than ever.


We will be able to see what results of this impending conflict in season 6. Right now there is no confirmed release date for next season of My Hero Academia, however, we may be lucky enough to see it come out sometime next year.
