My Hero Academia Season 7 release date

My Hero Academia Season 7 is going to continue one of the biggest anime currently running, with Deku set to face his most challenging battle yet against Shigaraki.

My Hero Academia, one of the best anime of the last decade, is heading towards the finale. With the Liberation War Arc and the Black Hero Arc come and gone, they’ve made way for the Final Saga and the conclusion.

The most recent season was filled with epic highs and lows. We got Dark Deku, the start of his showdown with Shigaraki, and the introduction of Star Stripe, all of which add to the anticipation for new episodes. So, when is My Hero Academia Season 7 out, and what else do we know?

My Hero Academia Season 7 release date

My Hero Academia Season 7 premiered on May 4, 2024. Crunchyroll had the episode available for streaming from that date, allowing fans to jump right into Deku’s return.

This is a little later than normal, since seasons 5 and 6 kicked off in March 2021 and March 2023, respectively. That said, the fact we’re getting My Hero Academia Season 7 so soon after the finale of the sixth season is something to celebrate!

My Hero Academia Season 7 trailer

The first proper My Hero Academia Season 7 trailer was released in December 2023. It teases another epic chapter for Deku and his cohorts as they continue to stop evil.

Another trailer for My Hero Academia Season 7 was revealed at AnimeJapan 2024, revealing the new opening, and further teasing Shigaraki and Deku’s showdown.

Star and Stripe gets a couple of clear shots towards the end of the first one, indicating their presence will grow throughout the season. We’re coming into the last battle between Deku and Shigaraki, and that’s only teased in shows of them individually, possibly as a way of holding onto how that depiction will shock us.

My Hero Academia Season 7 plot: What will happen?

With the introduction of Star and Stripe, My Hero Academia Season 7 will cover a new battle against All For One and Tomura Shigaraki. Star and Stripe has an affinity for All Might, so this will no doubt come into play, as will her very powerful quirk, titled “New Order”, which allows the hero to declare “rules” on anything around her.

The show will continue to follow the manga, where the Final Saga is happening. This has involved Deku battling Shigaraki as the One For All and All For One Quirks clash. The fight is prolong and dramatic, and although My Hero Academia Season 6 introduced Dark Deku, only time will tell how much is adapted here.

Season 6 was considered by many fans to be one of the best seasons so far, so Season 7 has a lot to live up to. But if this is the final season as rumors have suggested, no doubt the show will go out in Plus Ultra style.
