The highly anticipated next season is premiering tomorrow, and now, My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 1 just got a new preview that reveals its title and shares new images.
A preview of the upcoming episode was shared via the show’s official Twitter account. The tweet contained four images from the episode, as well as some bits of information.
Entitled "Quiet Beginning", the new episode will likely follow the calm before the storm as the upcoming season will cover one of the biggest arcs in the manga.
The manga began serialization on Weekly Shonen Jump back in July 2014 and has since become one of Shueisha’s biggest hits.
As of January 2022, the series has over 65 million copies in circulation.
The manga became even more popular when it got an anime adaptation, the first season being 13 episodes long and having aired in 2016.
Since then, the anime has been renewed for new seasons with 25 episodes each.
Based on a recent announcement, the sixth is also likely to have 25 episodes as it was confirmed to have a 2-cour run.
This latest season adapts the Paranormal Liberation War Arc of the manga.
Many fans consider this as one of the most action-packed and exciting arcs in the manga as it features a large-scale battle.
Specifically, it will follow an all-out war between the Pro Heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front led by Tomura Shigaraki.
The end of the fifth season directly builds up to this upcoming war.
Based on the images and the title though, the first episode might be a setup that will lead to the big fights, especially those that will feature fan-favorite Mirko, the No. 5 Pro Hero.
Aside from the official Twitter account, other preview images have circulated online too.
As shared by @shonenleaks, these images feature Pro Heroes Hawks and Mirko.
There are also images of the Pro Hero teams that have been dispatched to the Paranormal Liberation Front villains.
My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 1 will premiere tomorrow, October 1, 2022.
The series is confirmed to stream on Crunchyroll in select regions shortly after each episode’s release in Japan.
