Season 6 was announced just a few minutes before the premiere of the season 5 finale. The My Hero Academia Season 5 was based on ‘Pro Hero Arc,’ Joint Training Arc,’ ‘Meta Liberation Army Arc,’ ‘Endeavor Agency Arc,’ and few early chapters of ‘Paranormal Liberation War Arc.’

‘The ‘Paranormal Liberation War Arc.’ chapter is vast, so we might see manga artist Kohei Horikoshi take a significant role in season 6. The manga is currently on the Tartarus Escapees Arc, which is just after the Paranormal Liberation War Arc.

Based on the vast chapters of Paranormal Liberation War Arc, we might see season 6 of My Hero Academia feature more episodes than season 5.

If the current manga arc ‘Tartarus Escapees Arc’ ends by the time season 6 release, then the series will also get a renewal for season 7 for sure. In short, the fans of My Hero Academia do not need to worry as there are plenty of chapters left, so the anime series will continue to have more seasons.

My Hero Academia Season 6: What Can We Expect from Season 6?

In the post-credit scene of My Hero Academia Season 5, we learned that every member in Midoriya’s class had been instructed to assemble for any expeditionary operation.

The team, later on, met with Burnin, one of the people from Endeavor’s Agency; it is likely that in the next season, we will see the heroes executing a raid on the Jaku Hospital to clean out Tomura, Dr. Ujiko, and their associates.

The students here will help the heroes to evacuate the civilians from Jaku City. It might also be revealed in season 6 that Dr. Ujiko has a quirk after all that is older than initially believed. Dr. Ujiko will use Nomus to attack the pro-heroes to stop them from executing the raid on Jaku Hospital.

And the end of season 6, we will see a final confrontation between All Might successor Midoriya and All For One successor Tomura, which fans are eagerly waiting for.

A Complete Recap of My Hero Academia Season 5

Season 5 of My Hero Academia explores Midoriya obtaining the quirks from all the past One For All users. In the joint training exercise session, we also witnessed that 1 A class students emerged victorious against the 1 B.

Keigo Takami, aka Wing Hero: Hawks, at that time, realized that something was going on with the League of villains, so he decided to go undercover.

After going undercover, he figures out that there will be war soon, so he decides to alert the Commission and Commission, on the other hand, informs the U.A to send their students for the internship.

In season 5 the League of Villains and MLA have now become merged, and now they are called the Paranormal Liberation Front army.

In the final episode of My Hero Academia Season 5, it was revealed that Keigo was also present when Tomura gave his speech. He then returned over the body to Dabi and it seems that it is Best Jeanist’s body but it seems it is a dummy body because we didn’t witness Hawks killing him.

Keigo realized that the situation was tensed, and they had to act on it, so he decided to solve the missing piece of the puzzle quickly, which was related to the secret benefactor of the League, and Keigo guessed it correctly that it was connected somehow with the Hospital.

The Hospital here refers to Jaku General Hospital that Kyudai Garaki has earlier established. In the Hospital, there is a laboratory as well where Ujiko creates the Nomus (A type of Artificial Humans)

Dr. Ujiko Finally Accepts Tomura as One For All’s Successor

By the end of Season 5, Tomura’s progress amused Dr. Ujiko; he promised to give him more of his quirks.

He even told him that the next few months would be unbearable, but the result of all this would be worth the pain and sacrifice as Tomura would have every power at the palm of his hands.

Midoriya Developed his Secondary Qurik Blackwhip

The U.A students have also shown remarkable improvements during their internships, and Midoriya also developed his secondary Quirk called Blackwhip.

All Might seemed proud of the progress that Midoriya has made so far. He advises Midoriya to continue his hard work and keep moving forward.

In the finale episode, All Might gave Midoriya the composition book that he wrote to note all the details on the previous users of One For All.

All Might explained Midoriya to examine the book and find out the secrets behind all those as users as some of them even All Might couldn’t figure out. All Might also told Midoriya to learn the floating Quirk from his mentor Nana Shimura next.

Best Jeanist: Is he dead or alive?

As stated earlier in the recap section, Beast Jeanist is not dead, yet we didn’t see Hawks killing him. The body that Hawks might have shown to Dabi would have been a decoy.

It seems Best Jeanist is currently recovering from his injuries so that he can serve as the pro-hero No. 3 once again.

In the next season, he will play an essential part for sure. But by that time, the Paranormal Liberation Front army will use his demise as a promotion to boost their morale for sure.

Identity of the Secret Benefactor of the Paranormal Liberation Front Revealed

The Secret benefactor of the Paranormal Liberation Front was Dr. Ujiko, aka Kyudai Garaki. He was always loyal to All For One, but he was first uncertain about Tomura’s worthiness as All For One’s successor.

But after witnessing Tomura’s victory against MLA, he now believes that he is a perfect choice. He will now share all his knowledge with Tomura to make him more powerful than All For One.

In Season 5, Tomur’a quirk had become way more powerful than before, especially in the battle against Re-Destron.

We witnessed the power of decay quirk, and now Tomura will not stop there; he will eventually gain more control over his powers and surpass All For One.
