My Hero Academia Returns to Funimation in April


Sony Pictures Television’s Funimation is gearing up to premiere the third installment of the teen-skewing anime series My Hero Academia early next month.

My Hero Academia follows superheroes-in-training attending U.A. High School. Season three debuts on Saturday, April 7. The first six episodes will stream day-and-date with the Japanese TV broadcast in SimulDub on FunimationNow in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, New Zealand and Australia, and with subtitles on Hulu and Crunchyroll.

All 25 episodes of the third season will stream in SimulDub on FunimationNow and in subtitled simulcast on both Hulu and Crunchyroll.

Gen Fukunaga, the CEO and founder of Funimation, said: “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 super hero lore and pop culture representations that North American audiences grew up with and continue to gravitate to. We’re excited to be premiering season three 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.”
