Anime news: FUNimation obtains license to My Hero Academia

It was reported that today from FUNimation that they recently got the license for the upcoming superhero anime My Hero Academia. That means they will be able to stream the anime, sell it on DVDs and On Demand. FUNimation will stream the series for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland in the same time as Japan.

The anime will begin on MBS/TBS channel in Japan on Sunday at 5 PM on April 3rd.


What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks” at age four? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn’t got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny…

Viz Media also has been releasing the manga in print and digital format. If you are fan of My Hero Academia, check Kohei Horikoshi’s previous manga Barrage. Barrage is only two volumes.

If this anime turns out great, this would outclass the superhero anime One-Punch Man.
