Funimation released an English dub trailer for the fourth season of My Hero Academia during the anime series’ panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The new season will be simultaneously released on FunimationNow as it airs in Japan this fall.
The first trailer for the new season gave us brief glimpses of the new cast of characters joining this season, and this trailer brings the English voice cast into the action. Season 4 takes place during the “Shie Hassaikai” arc of the manga, which situates Overhaul, a germaphobic villain hellbent on eradicating quirks from existence, as the primary antagonist.
Deku, working under All-Might’s former sidekick Sir Nighteye, investigates the gang that Overhaul leads. The fourth season will also give more time to fan favorite characters like the “Big Three,” UA High School’s most promising hero candidates, and Eijiro Kirishima, one of the members of Class 1-A.
My Hero Academia’s third season was one of the best anime of 2018, and season 4 looks likely to follow in its footsteps. While Crunchyroll hasn’t yet announced a simultaneous broadcast of the series, it’s likely given that the previous seasons were previously released on Cruncyroll in tandem with their airing in Japan.
My Hero Academia season 4 premieres on Oct. 12.
