My Hero Academia's 3rd season returns with our favorite hero-wannabes on the 7th of April, 2018. All 25 episodes of the season will be available via FunimationNow's SimulDub, Hulu, and Crunchyroll as well.
Summer comes, but it seems the hardships of becoming a world-famous hero never lighten for Class 1-A and 1-B. Instead of relaxing and having fun on the beach, they need to show what they are made of in a tough hero-training camp. However, their challenges become a whole different level when the already extreme exercises given by their pro-hero tutors turn into a fight for survival.
“From rankings to polls to awards, ‘My Hero Academia’ was without a doubt, universally recognized – by both fans and media alike – as the best in anime in 2017. The series truly resonates with the superhero lore and pop culture representations that North American audiences grew up with and continue to gravitate to.”
“We’re excited to be premiering Season 3 on April 7 and to be able to once again simultaneously stream the first six episodes of ‘My Hero Academia’ in SimulDub on the same day and date as the Japanese broadcast.”
- Gen Fukunaga, CEO, and founder of Funimation
My Hero Academia's third season is not a title with high expectations for nothing. The first two seasons were recognized as one of the (if not the) best anime of 2017, cherished by fans and getting positive feedback from the media alike. MHA received awards for its second season, such as “Best Anime” in IGN and Anime News Network, while Nerdist dubbed it as the “Perfect Anime for American Comic Book Fans” and ComicBook.com awarded it the “2017 Golden Issue Award for Best Shounen Series.” The show had successfully hit right in the bullseye to appeal to fans of western superhero stories with Japanese aesthetics.
