My Hero Academia: Will the Movie Cause Delay in Season 5?

My Hero Academia might seem like just another cliched manga with heroes striving to defeat villains, but it is more than what meets the eye.

The series compels its viewers and readers to raise questions against the protagonists as well as the antagonists.

My Hero Academia has already received four seasons of anime and two anime films. Season 5 of the anime is on its way!

News from a trusted source on Twitter stated that the My Hero Academia staff and creators have decided to release another movie this year. In fact, it might get a movie every year, just like Naruto.

However, fans aren’t happy about this overlap of anime series and films.

The prominent reason behind it is that the quality of season 4 had noticeably deteriorated, mainly because the animators were busy with My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising movie.

Since Studio Bones is working on both the anime and the movie, fans believe that it is likely for season 5 to not be up to the mark as well, especially if another film is in production.

Will the new movie affect season 5?


The first and foremost worry of fans is the release date of season 5 of My Hero Academia.

The season’s release date is undecided, but according to some speculations, it might release in spring 2021.

However, the production of a movie can substantially delay the season.

Two different teams are reportedly working on the movie and anime series. Thus a delay may not take place unless it is due to the pandemic.


My Hero Academia is released as seasons, and the primary reason behind that is to control the quality.

Even though season 4 saw a drip in the animation quality, the talented team of animators behind the series are likely to learn from it and not make the same mistake twice.

Why Are We Getting More Movies?

The first My Hero Academia grossed a total of 27.5 million USD while the Heroes Rising movie grossed 29.9 million USD.

These figures are what will help the funding for the anime. However, the talent of the artists will be the determining factor in the animations.

Although BluRay and DVD sales of anime are essential, it doesn’t amount to much. Most sales come in from manga volumes and merchandise.

Furthermore, the movies will bind in with the anime and will have extra information about the anime and might even help with the plot’s commencement.
