This year's 30th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump magazine, which will ship on June 27, will be announcing that the anime adaptation of manga Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) will get second season. The manga was featured in color as a centerfold. More details will be announced at a later date.

Synopsis
The appearance of "quirks," newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.

Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku's unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might's quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!

Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year's freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.

Boku no Hero Academia is written and drawn by Kouhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized since July 2014 and currently has nine compiled manga volumes, with the 9th volume just released last June 3. Bones has previously adapted the manga into a 13-episode TV anime adaptation that has been airing since April 3 and is set to end on June 26.

Judging by the key visual, it will be adapting two arcs. This means that the pacing will have to be a hell of a lot faster this time around. To be fair though, the next arc has way more fight scenes so it can be covered faster.

YES! Good to see it happen. About time.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Great news, this season has been the standout anime for me.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

If the spoiler image is anything to go by they'll cover two arcs. I'm worried about jamming so many chapters into just 13 episodes, but still happy we're getting more.

Awesome. Was afraid that it might've not got another season because of low TV ratings. I hear that the manga gets way better and darker later on. If it's 13 episodes again, then it would probably just adapt the Sports Festival arc, and that'd be it. But there are people saying that it might adapt two arcs, so hopefully a 2-cour second season?

That's cool. First season is enjoyable, so a second season is always welcome.

Is 3 chapters per episode ideal? That's what I count if it will have 13 episodes.

From what I have heard bones has been following the manga faithfully, so its most likely going to be 2 cour. Well, now I'm not sure if I'm going to read the manga. I'll probably wait for season 2.

Eugh. Not surprising I guess, stuff like that appeals to the masses.


Seriously, Stop adapting generic shonen crap and give me Kekkai Sensen 2, BONES. Or do more high quality anime original works on level of Conrevo. There's enough shonen fighter shows in the market as is.

2 cour would definitely be nice, and they have been very faithful so far.

They've mostly stuck to 2 chapters per episode this season. 3 would be pushing it, but it might turnout fine.

I'm just happy to see more high level epic bones sakuga, this show is pretty awesome even if it's not on the same level of creativity of some of the original bones shows of the past few years (dandy, kekkai, con revo).

Anime is good, fucking deal with it.

Kekkai Sensen was a manga adaptation with a lot of anime original elements, wasn't it?

Bones need to get busy with that Kekkai Sensen Season 2, instead of Generic Shounen Bullshit The Anime.
