Season 4 of My Hero Academia premiered at a special panel (with the cast) during Anime Expo 2019.
My Hero Academia is one of the most popular series and its still going strong at Anime Expo 2019. That is why it was the perfect opportunity to host a special screening of the Season 4 premier
My Hero Academia Season 4 Premier was one of the most highly anticipated event of the weekend. Wristbands were needed to attend and they were sold out before Day Zero. The convention had only been open for a few minutes on Saturday but a massive line had already gathered by the Entertainment Hall for the 10:00 am event.
The Q&A Session
Before the premier, the cast of My Hero Academia took the stage to share their experience. The panel featured Kaori Nazuka (Invisible Girl and Mt. Lady), David Matranga (Shoto Todoroki), Kellen Goff (Overhaul), Patrick Seitz (Endeavor), Justin Cook (Red Riot), Jason Liebrecht (Dabi) and Ricco Fajardo (Mirio Togata).
During the Q&A session, many of them praised the work that Colleen Clinkenbeard has done by bringing them all together in her role as director. Other subjects that were examined included how they prepared for the role and what they liked about the manga. Each one also shared some of the highlights of working together and working on the series. Most important of all, Seitz noted that Season 4 is going to need 1000% more Froppy (a statement meet with roaring applause).
Season 4 Premier
The episode follows Izuku Midoriya attempting to join the hero agency of Sir Nighteye (since he started as All Might sidekick). However everything is off to a rocky start due to All Might personal issues and Sir Nighteye standards. Midoriya skills and self-worth are put to the ultimate test that will determine if he is truly worthy of being the holder of the One for All quirk.
Meanwhile, the arrest of All For One has created a power vacuum not just among the League of Villains but in the criminal world. This has caused Tomura Shigaraki leadership to be challenged by Overhaul of the Yakuza.
To find out what happens, fans will have to wait until the next episode of My Hero Academia.
After Show Celebration
Following the end of the episode and before anyone could run to the door, the cast encouraged the audience to join them in a group photo. Outside the halls of the convention center, fans were either sharing their thoughts on the episode among each other or were quick to share it on social media.
Season 4 of My Hero Academia will premier on Crunchyroll, FunimationNow and Hulu starting October 12.
