The Jump Festa 2024 event taking place in Tokyo on Dec 16, 2023, screened the first trailer for My Hero Academia Season 7.
Fans have been looking forward to this season specifically because Season 7 gives us the first look at the American hero Star and Stripe in all her glory!
In this trailer, we see Class A-1 in their new look as they prepare for another strike against the dastardly villains Tomura Shigaraki and All for One!
The trailer confirms that My Hero Academia Season 7 will begin airing on May 4, 2024.
Funnily enough, this trailer was accidentally posted on the official My Hero Academia Twitter account way before the panel at Jump Festa even began!
Earlier this month, in December 2023, we also got the first full key visual of Season 7 and what we can expect from it.

Crunchyroll describes Season 1 of My Hero Academia as follows:
Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
