The My Hero Academia panel at the AnimeJapan 2024 event on Mar 24, 2024, showcased a new trailer for My Hero Academia Season 7, which is set to hit streaming platforms worldwide on on May 4 with episode 139.

The trailer sets the stage for what we should expect for the new season and how Deku and the others will fair against All For One and Shigaraki in the series’ climatic showdown!

It also features the new opening theme “Dare Ware Tame” by Tk from Ling Tosite Sigure, who also performed the iconic theme song “Unravel” from Tokyo Ghoul.

Tk comments on the opening theme as follows:

“I have no personality, no talent and am far from being a hero, but I’ve been thinking about what I can draw for the work. The theme of this song was born the moment a soap bubble flew in front of me and disappeared, leaving its shape on the concrete, reflecting the rainbow colours so vividly. Is this battle, which continues with deprivation and even pain in our hands, for ourselves or for someone else? May the brightness that shines through the tattered world be engraved with this song.”

To commemorate the release of My Hero Academia Season 7, TOHO Animation will release recap episodes on the following dates, dubbed as “My Hero Academia Memories”:

  • April 6
  • April 13
  • April 20
  • April 27

About My Hero Academia

It inspired many spin-off manga, including My Hero Academia: Smash!!, Vigilantes, and Team-Up Missions. Besides light novels, stage plays, and souvenirs, the franchise has produced many video games.

Studio Bones produced the first season from April to June 2016, a second from April to September 2017, a third from April to September 2018, a fourth from October 2019 to April 2020, a fifth from March to September 2021, a sixth from October 2022 to March 2023, and a seventh that is currently in production.

It has three animated films, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, Heroes Rising, and World Heroes’ Mission, plus nine original video animations. The Fourth animated film and a live-action Legendary Entertainment film are currently being planned.

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.
