My Hero Academia fans are eagerly anticipating the next season of the popular anime, but one artist took a further look into the future of the series by creating an amazing rendition of an aged up Midoriya.

Fans of the franchise have been making everything from incredible cosplays and creative crossovers incorporating My Hero Academia characters that look astonishing in their execution.


While fans still have a bit longer to wait for the debut of the fourth season to the My Hero Academia anime, a great concept piece is giving people a glimpse of what a Pro Hero Deku could look like.

BonesThe artist’s design veered a bit from the epic All Might impression from Deku.

Artist ‘aodavid23’ unveiled their take on Midoriya in what looks to be the aftermath of an epic battle, all the while looking much older in relation to his base design in the first few seasons of the show.


Among other attributes, it looks like Midoriya outgrew his messy hair of his younger days, and opted for a cleaner undercut that could be more helpful when encountering an S-Rank villain.

Even though it looks like there’s chaos and calamity happening around Midoriya, it seems like he’s got a calm handle on things.

aodavid23The aged-up look for Midoriya could be a great look for what future seasons might bring.

Moreover, it looks like he finally got the hang of One for All seeing as he might be beaten and bruised, but there doesn’t seem to be lasting damage from his inherited Quirk.


The power of One for All can be seen emanating from his left glove with other bursts coming  from his right elbow, knee caps and thigh. But instead of it taking electric form it looks more like a green fire.

BonesThe next season of the anime will show how much the UA students have grown.

When is My Hero Academia Season 4 releasing?

For those who are waiting for any sign of the next part of the My Hero Academia show are in luck, since Funimation announced fans will be able to watch the Season 4 premiere at Anime Expo 2019.

More specifically, the event will hold a special screening of the debut episode during their event that takes place Saturday, July 6 from 10 am to 12 pm PST.


It looks like fans who can make the trip to Hall B will get a first look at Deku as well as the rest of the 1-A class. As for the rest of the fan base, aodavid23’s design will have to hold them over until the show’s wide release.

A talented My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her incredible take on one of U.A. High School’s ‘Big 3’, the powerful and popular Nejire Hado. 

My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man born without superpowers who dreams of becoming a pro hero. A chance encounter with his idol All Might leads to Deku being gifted the legendary quirk known as One For All, and with his newfound abilities enrolls at U.A. High to learn how to harness them under the tutelage of the Symbol of Peace himself.


Throughout his years at the school, Midoriya meets lots of characters who become part of his legacy there, including a run-in with third-year students Mirio Togata, Tamaki Amajiki, and Nejire Hado. These three stand alone as the most powerful students at U.A. High, and earned the nickname ‘The Big 3″ thanks to their abilities and performances.

While Amajiki is shy and introverted, Togata is the exact opposite, full of optimism and inspiration. Somewhere in-between their two extreme personalities sits the kind, thoughtful, and popular Nejire Hado, who quickly became a fan-favorite after her introduction as part of Class 1-A’s Hero Work Students.

Nejire is part of U.A’s ‘Big 3’, the most powerful students at the entire school.

While Nejire can sometimes be viewed as a bit of an “airhead” due to her almost constant sunny disposition, she is clever, quick-witted, and incredibly powerful, with her Wave Motion quirk giving her the ability to convert her own vitality into energy, and use it to create powerful spiral shockwaves that send enemies flying. Using this powerful ability does drain the hero though as it uses her own stamina, often leaving Hado with great exhaustion.

While she can often be seen in her U.A. High School uniform, cosplayer ‘elaine.rose.cosplay‘ has shown off her take on the character in her hero outfit, complete with the blue bodysuit that Nejire wears into combat, with pale mint green markings and turquoise framing.

Nejire’s blue hair falls down her back, complete with the bangs that sit on either side of her face, while her two spiraling horns of hair stick up high on her head, making this one of the most accurate Hado cosplays we’ve seen.
