My Hero Academia Gets Release Date For Two OVAs!

One of the interesting things about anime is that most people only think of it in the context of its mainline series that it’s adapting. But as various animes have shown, you can do things a little bit differently and thus expand the universe. Such as movies (which has happened with various anime franchises), or shorts (that can tell mini-stories or be funny skits) and then, there are the OVAs, which is what we’re talking about here with My Hero Academia.

Because while fans are eagerly waiting for My Hero Academia Season 6 to arrive, there are going to be not one but TWO special OVAs that are coming out to help build things up in their own way, and as you can see in the Tweet below, they’re both going to be able to be viewed on August 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for the baseball OVA known as HLB:

“HLB stands for ‘Hero League of Baseball’ – it is a baseball league founded by pro-heroes who love baseball! It’s game day! The last game of HLB championship is between Gang Orca and Shishido’s two rival agencies. They form a team (‘Orcas’ and ‘Lionels’) to compete. In the world of HLB, there is no rule – using their quirks is of course accepted. However, just when the game is about to finish, they are interrupted by a villain. Who will be the winner of HLB!?”

The second OVA, known as “Laugh! As if you are in Hell!”, hasn’t been given a synopsis yet, but as you can see in the cover art for it, will feature the three main leads of Class 1-A during their time with Endeavor, and they’ll be fighting a new villain known as Mr. Smiley.

And hopefully before too long they will give the release date for Season 6.
