This week brings an end to season one of studio BONES’ My Hero Academia anime, with the upcoming 13th episode ‘Upon Each of Their Hearts’. But there’s also glad tidings for fans of the anime and Kohei Horikoshi’s manga, as an early look at the contents page for next week’s issue of Shonen Jump has revealed a listing for a second season, which will cover the ‘Sports Festival’ arc and beyond.
FUNimation previously confirmed that we in the UK and Ireland could watch their simulcast and broadcast dub of the first series, so chances are we’ll be able to watch the second on FunimationNow as it airs. Back in April, FUNimation announced their dub cast for the show, including the voice of Vegeta himself, Chris Sabat, as All Might. The streaming service and distributors describe the anime’s story:
There’s a new hero in town! From Studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class.
Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
