My Hero Academia Original Episode “UA Heroes Battle” Coming To NYCC

The team behind My Hero Academia is releasing the all-new “original episode” featuring Deku, Shoto, Bakugo, and the rest of the Yuei dormitory. It will have its initial premier in Japan, but Crunchyroll has announced that it will be debuting in the United States at the New York Comic Con 2023.

Crunchyroll said on their website, “The official My Hero Academia accounts announced today that a brand new original episode, titled “UA HEROES BATTLE,” will come out soon! For My Hero Academia fans attending New York Comic Con 2023, you will be able to see an exclusive early screening featuring the English dub version!”

“Join Crunchyroll for the world premiere of the new original episode from My Hero Academia Season 6, UA HEROES BATTLE! This exclusive early screening features the English dub, and will be available to NYCC attendees before Japan. Get ready for some card game action that will showcase your favorite heroes like never before,” they added.

Little is known about the original episode other than the official X account promising a “hot card battle.”

Roughly translated, the X post says, “New anime original episode is coming! ‘My Hero Academia Hero Heroes Battle’ production decided! Depicted in chronological order during the winter vacation of the TV 5th season, A hot card battle in the Yuei dormitory…!? A special screening project has been decided at 10 theaters nationwide from October 20th (Friday)!”
