Season 3 of the Boku no Hero Academia anime was announced in the 44th issue of the 2017 Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.[1] It is set to air in Japan on April 7, 2018.

Summary

The season will cover the School Trip Arc, in which the students of Class 1-A go on a school trip to a training camp under the supervision of a hero team, the Wild Wild Pussycats.

Production

This season retains the same core staff and studio, being directed by Kenji Nagasaki at Studio Bones. At a panel for an event held in October of 2017, the staff revealed that the season was being handled by Bones’ sub-studio C, which had previously worked on the anime’s second season.[2] The sub-studio had already begun production on the season at the time of the announcement.[3] This season will remain in the same time slot that the second season had previously occupied, airing every Saturday at 5:30pm in Japan on the Nippon TV (NTV) and Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation (YTV) stations.[4]

Cast

The cast members for the characters introduced in this season of the anime are as follows:[5][6]

History

Days before the announcement page in the Jump magazine was released, the final episode of Season 2 confirmed a third season of the anime being in the works upon airing.[7] FUNimation Entertainment announced at its panel at the New York Comic Con on October 5, 2017 that they will stream the season in 2018.[8]

A fan event held on November 26, 2017 confirmed that the season will premiere in April, with the unveiling of the season's first key visual. The visual, featuring Deku, Katsuki Bakugo, and All Might, was drawn by Yoshihiko Umakoshi in order to commemorate the event.[9] The tenth 2018 issue of the Jump magazine further revealed the season's premiere date to be on April 7, 2018. The news of this date was also featured on the wraparound jacket band of the third volume of the spinoff manga, Vigilante - My Hero Academia: Illegals.[10] A second visual for the season, featuring students of Class 1-A facing off against the League of Villains, was revealed on the official website for the anime.[11] The visual was also featured in the Jump magazine’s twelfth 2018 issue. 

The character designs and the cast members for both Kouta and the Wild Wild Pussycats were first officially shown in the ninth issue of the 2018 Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. They had been previously teased by the anime's official Twitter[12], and were fully revealed upon the issue's publication. The eleventh issue of the magazine followed a similar suit, revealing the character designs and voice members for three villains new to the anime: Mustard, Moonfish, and Muscular.

A promotional video for this season was first shown on December 16, 2017 at Jump Festa 2018, before being streamed on the anime’s official website the very same day.[13]
