The anime series My Hero Academia will be airing its third season later this year and Funimation has now announced that it will air it the same day as Japan in many countries all over the world. 

Season 3 of My Hero Academia will premiere on April 7th, 2018 as the first six episodes will air at the same day and same time as the Japanese TV broadcast.

It will broadcast in "SimulDub on FunimationNow in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, New Zealand and Australia and in subtitled simulcast on Hulu and Crunchyroll" says the press release.

All 25 episodes will also then air in SimulDub on FunimationNow and then subtitled versions are also coming to Hulu and Crunchyroll as well. Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation, comments down below about the new series. 

"From rankings to polls to awards, ‘My Hero Academia’ was without a doubt, universally recognized – by both fans and media alike – as the best in anime in 2017. The series truly resonates with the superhero lore and pop culture representations that North American audiences grew up with and continue to gravitate to. We’re excited to be premiering Season 3 on April 7 and to be able to once again simultaneously stream the first six episodes of ‘My Hero Academia’ in SimulDub on the same day and date as the Japanese broadcast."

If you have never heard of the series before, the press release also posted a short plot synopsis of what Season 3 will be about. You can read the synopsis down below. 

"Summer is here, and the heroes of Class 1-A and 1-B are in for the toughest training camp of their lives! A group of seasoned pros pushes everyone’s Quirks to new heights as the students face one overwhelming challenge after another. Braving the elements in this secret location becomes the least of their worries when routine training turns into a critical struggle for survival."
