The August premiere date for the specials was announced at a stage greeting event for MHA that was streamed on the Toho Animation YouTube Channel.

In the first episode, “Hero League Baseball,” several baseball-loving members of the Hero Academy step up to the plate to participate in a game between the Gang Orca-led Orca team and the Shishido-led Lionels. The second episode, “Laugh! Like You Are In Hell,” revolves around the pro-hero Endeavor confronting a mischievous rogue called Mr. Smiley, who decorates the town with graffiti and uses his Quirk to evade the police. The police eventually ask Endeavor to deal with the rogue graffiti artist, but Endeavor does not choose to take action until Mr. Smiley vandalizes the top ranked hero’s home, after which he tasks his interns — Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki — to hunt down the mischievous vandal.

Both of these new anime specials are produced by BONES, the studio that also produces the main My Hero Academia anime series. In addition to the new specials, BONES is also currently working on the upcoming sixth season of the TV series, which is scheduled to debut sometime next fall. The new season will adapt the Paranormal Liberation War arc, which revolves around an all-out war between the series’ pro-heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front, a collection of Japan’s most dangerous supervillains.

My Hero Academia is based on the manga of the same name created by Kohei Horikoshi in 2014. Set in a world where most of the population is born with a unique superpower, the series has become one of the biggest hits to emerge out of Shonen Jump in the last decade, with more than 65 million copies in circulation worldwide. The manga, which is currently in the story’s final arc and is scheduled to conclude sometime before the end of the year, is available in English from publisher VIZ Media. All five seasons of MHA can be streamed on Crunchyroll.
