At long last the air date is almost here! As the hype around this production picks up steam, the 5th trailer has been unveiled.
The trailer shows a world where having “quirks,” essentially the equivalent of “super powers,” is the norm. Himself lacking any “quirks,” Midoriya Izuku (nicknamed “Deku”), struggles mightily but wishes to become a superhero.
His idol, the superhero All Might, also makes an appearance in the trailer, as do main characters Bakugo Katsuki, Uraraka Ochako, and Iida Tenya.
The captivating trailer is gathering considerable interest for this anime. Among its highlights are the fantastic action scenes such as the hero battles. With Bones, one of the finest studios in Japan, working on this title, expectations are high throughout the industry.
In addition, the trailer also featured the opening theme song “The Day” by the popular band PornoGraffitti.
This high-energy, fast paced song’s lyrics are reflective of the running themes in the My Hero Academia universe.
“The Day” will be released on CD on May 25th. Three versions will be available for purchase: The First Play Limited Edition Release (CD+DVD), the Limited Time Anime Version (CD+Anime Art Jacket), and the regular version (CD only). The Limited Time Anime Version in particular is gathering major interest. An official ringtone of “The Day” will also start being distributed on April 3rd at midnight.
The same day (April 3rd) will see the initial broadcast of the TV anime itself. Check back for more updates!
