The wait is over! Welcome to the My Hero Academia Season 4 OT!

You ready?​

DO NOT SPOIL ANYTHING FROM THE MANGA. THAT INCLUDES HINTING AT THINGS TO COME.
If you must discuss the manga, we have an excellent general OT for My Hero Academia where the spoilers flow like waterfalls.
Other than that, just try to be friendly and respectful to all your fellow posters. Play nice.
I'll update this spot if things change and new rules need to be put in place.


In a world where 80% of the population is born with a superpower known as a Quirk, society has adjusted accordingly leading to a plethora of superheroes and supervillains around the world. The heroes save people, chase fame and glory, while the villains savor chaos, destruction, and upending the status quo. My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a previously quirkless teen who now has a chance to become the #1 hero in the world like his idol and mentor, All Might. Enrolling in U.A. to make his dreams come true, Midoriya now walks the path of a hero.

BIG PLAYERS(CURRENTLY)

All Might's archnemesis, All For One is responsible for much death and destruction. Currently behind bars, it seems his reign of terror has ended.

Mirio Togata
Hero Name: Unrevealed
Quirk: Permeation
The person closest to becoming #1, even amongst the pros, Mirio Togata has a bright personality and hopefully even a brighter future awaiting him. A member of U.A.'s big 3, A.K.A the strongest students at school. He sees potential in Deku.

Shoto Todoroki

Son of Endeavor and one of the more promising students in Class 1-A, Todoroki is training hard to claim the provisional license he missed last season.

Too many to list all of Deku's classmates, but they deserve some love. Expect this character list to rotate throughout the season. From top left to right(or top to bottom on mobile):

CLASS 1-A SPOTLIGHT!

Pro Heroes

Enji Todoroki

The homeroom teacher of Class 1-A, Shoto Aizawa is a man calm under pressure. With All Might retired and the villains on the rise, he is going to have to make sure 1-A is ready for whatever may come.

Quirk: Orcinus
Pro Hero and proctor of the provisional license exam.
Last, but certainly not least

Katsuki "Lord Explosion Murder" Bakugo
Hero Name: N/A
Quirk: Explosion
Childhood friend to Deku, Bakugo is a promising student with an abrasive personality and a huge inferiority complex. A battle with Deku last season seemed to indicate a change of heart in Bakugo. How will he develop moving forward...?

Last season saw Deku and the other students of U.A. go to summer camp for training, only for the league to attack and kidnap Bakugo. Deku, Iida, Momo, Kirishima, and Todoroki launch a hasty plan to find the League of Villains hideout and rescue their comrade, but in the process stumble upon All Might and the Pro Heroes attempting to do the same thing. What follows is an escalation no one could have foreseen as All Might's sworn enemy All For One appears on the battlefield. In the end, while Bakugo is rescued and All For One defeated, All Might used the last bit of his power in the process.

His hero days are over.

Now, all the heroes and aspiring heroes have to fill the void left by All Might. Deku and most of his classmates receive their provisional licenses allowing them to act as heroes outside of class. However, Todoroki and Bakugo do not pass. Bakugo, feeling insecure about the role he played in All Might's defeat lashes out at Deku and they have an all out brawl. Feelings raw and out in the open, it is All Might who finds Deku and Bakugo and decides to share his secret with young Bakugo. Now with a better understanding of Deku, All Might hopes their relationship will improve. Meanwhile, as all this is happening, sinster villains seem to be gathering around Tomura Shigaraki. His mentor in jail, Shigaraki must now lead the League on his own. The pressure is on for both heroes and villains, setting the stage for season 4!

Not a huge fan of the Overhaul arc, but it's got some high highs in it that I wanna see animated. Hopefully we'll get to see the subsequential arcs this season too.

This is going to be interesting since it's going to be my first season as a manga reader! The wait between Season 3 and 4 was just too much so I'm reading the manga by buying the volumes as they're released.

Very excited to see them adapt certain scenes and especially certain fights!

Managed to hold out and not read any of the manga during the wait. Really excited to see where they go with this season after all the interesting setup last season.

Finally the best boy gets his time to shine. I was just re-watching the villain attack from season one to get pumped. I really do love this show.

No it is not. Also bring this type of talk to the manga OT

Wasn’t too keen on this arc in the manga, so hopefully the anime will change my mind.

Looking forward to the following arc though.

Joke:

Saw someone’s post about how deku has a secret quirk that he got from his parents. His mum attracts stuff and his dad breathes hot fire, so Deku’s secret quirk from his parents is that he “attracts hot stuff” which is why he’s so popular with the ladies 😂 such a stupid post but I got a great laugh out of it.

Can’t wait for season 4!

I am excited for the season, but I’m kinda worried because the trailers all seem to be focusing on new people (and deku). I’m going to be massively disappointed if the rest of 1-A is sidelined for a bunch of people we haven’t seen before.

I'd not heard the english dubs before watching that trailer. They're .... rough. I'll be sticking with subs again this season.

Fucking finally

I think after this season, I'm switching to the manga. The wait was unbearable.
