My Hero Academia has just delivered some exciting news for fans! The franchise's sixth season is slated to release soon. The first episode of the upcoming sixth season will premiere earlier than scheduled, as per recent reports. The series has posted a special update for fans about its annual Hero Festival event ahead of its release.

With the anime returning with a new season this year, fans are excited to discover how much of the manga's content it'll cover. Manga readers know that the series has many more twists and turns coming. The series is currently in the middle of a major War arc with our heroes fighting what looks like their final fated battles.

While nothing can be said for sure, the manga does seem to be in the process of wrapping up some of the major storylines. Moreover, at the Jump Fiesta 2022 event, mangaka Kohei Horikoshi revealed that he would wrap up the series by the end of this year. However, he also mentioned that this would happen if everything went according to his plan.

All we know is that the sixth season of the anime will be amazing. Read on to know more.

My Hero Academia Season 6 to Release Episode 1 Early?

According to the latest update on My Hero Academia's official website, the series will feature the first episode of Season 6 at the annual Hero Festival event! The festival will be held on July 24, 2022, at Tokyo's Musashino Forest General Sports Plaza.

In addition to the episode, the event has several things planned for fans. The episode will air exclusively at the event, so fans won't be able to find the season six premiere on streaming platforms in July. While there's always a chance that footage from the episode will end up online, Hero Festival wants this to be a special treat for fans attending the event in person.

Several of the Japanese actors from the series will be performing live script readings at the event. My Hero Academia Season 6 is set to release in Fall 2022, so fans will have to wait to watch the rest of the season then. An exact release date for the upcoming season is yet to be announced.
