New York’s biggest comic book convention, NYCC is rapidly approaching with thousands upon thousands of fans being in attendance. With less than a month away from one of the biggest pop culture weekend events in NYC, studios and streaming companies are beginning their rollout of announcements for special screenings and premieres for fans to enjoy while attending. Crunchyroll has announced that they will be hosting an all-new My Hero Academia Season 6 original episode on Friday, October 13, exclusively at NYCC.
This early, exclusive world preview will feature the English dub and will be available to NYCC attendees before it is screened in Japan. Get ready for some card-game action that will showcase your favorite heroes like never before! Also in celebration of this premiere, Crunchyroll will be giving away limited edition character cards at the screening provided by UVS Games that are based on the new original episode and playable with the My Hero Academia Collectible Card Game. Attendees can also receive these special My Hero Academia cards as a gift with a purchase at Crunchyroll’s merch booth on the show floor.
Titled “UA HEROES BATTLE”, the My Hero Academia screening will take place on Friday, October 13 at 5:00 PM ET at the Empire Stage for all badge holders attending NYCC. As a general rule of thumb, although not emphasized by Crunchyroll’s announcement, arrive early as seats will be going fast! In addition to this massive announcement, Crunchyroll has also released an official key visual for the upcoming original episode which can be seen below, along with the episode’s official synopsis.
The third year, Mirio Togata, pays a visit to the students of Class 1-A, who are bored because they are not allowed to go outside. He brings them a card game called U.A. Heroes Battle that the support course made. This game, where players can use cards of various U.A. students, is tough, just like U.A. itself. Who will win the card battle?!
With Season 6 of My Hero Academia behind us, fans are eagerly looking forward to the already-announced seventh season. This new original episode comes just in time to quench the thirst of fans of the hit anime series. My Hero Academia Seasons 1-6 are streaming now on Crunchyroll.
