Last December we got the nod and the reveal of an October 2019 debut for a fourth season of My Hero Academia and since then we recently learned that Funimation will be streaming the series when it lands. The show is set for an October 12th, 2019 debut and Funimation has sent out a bit of a care package to some folks such as ourselves. These kinds of “kits” aren’t as common as they were back in the early days of anime on DVD but they still make their way out there for various projects. This one was a lot of fun where it’s not tied to a movie or TV show being included but is just some snazzy merch itself. With everyone in the household being a fan, let’s just say the vultures swooped in and made their claims – after I got to show off what came in. Check it out below!.

The series was directed by Kenji Nagasaki based on the series composition by Yousuke Kuroda. Yoshihiko Umakoshi is on board as the character designer and chief animation director with it being produced at BONES.

The Japanese cast includes Daiki Yamashita as Izuku, Kenta Miyake as All Might, Ayane Sakura as Ochako Uraraka, Kaito Ishikawa as Tenya Iida, Aoi Yuki as Tsuyu Asui, Ryou Hirohashi as Minoru Mineta, Marina Inoue as Momo Yaoyorozu, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Yuuki Kaji as Shoto Todoroki, Eri Kitamura as Mina Ashido, Kōsuke Kuwano as Yūga Aoyama, Kei Shindou as Kyōka Jirō, Masakazu Nishida as Mezō Shōji, Saki Ogasawara as Itsuka Kendou, Kouji Okino as Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, Azu Sakura as Mei Hatsume, Chisa Suganuma as Shino Sousaki (Mandalay), Meiko Kawasaki as Ragdoll, Shinnosuke Ogami as Tora, Serina Machiyama  as Pixie-Bob, and Michiru Yamazaki as Kouta Izumi.

First, we’ve got a look at the box o’ goodies and the thank you letter for being a fan of the show. What mysteries await?

This box has a second shirt to help us get ready for the fall with a long-sleeve shirt as well. Both shirts are too small for me but I gave them to my 80-year-old mother who is now ready to toss ’em on and go face the world.

The timing is good as my youngest daughter has been itching for a new wallet. This one is pretty good with the chains too!

Originally starting back in the summer of 2014, after creator Kouhei Horikoshi Barrage series ended, My Hero Academia is one of the more well-received books in the English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump.

Horikoshi received a Tezuka Award Honorable Mention in 2006 after publishing several short stories in Akamaru Jump. His first serialized work was Oumagadoki Doubutsuen back in 2010.

Check out the official site and Twitter.

Plot Concept: It’s an exciting age of heroes, where most people develop supernatural abilities known as Quirks. Bright-eyed kids like Izuku Midoriya—Deku for short—dream of the day they become champions of the people. There’s just one little problem standing in Deku’s way. In a world full of heroes, he’s Quirkless. Crushed, but not down for the count, this superhero-fanboy dedicates his time to studying the pros in hopes that he, too, can join a prestigious high school for heroes. In the face of despair, Deku’s courage catches the eye of his ultimate idol, the symbol of justice known as All Might! With special training from the big guy himself, Deku and the talented first-years of the academy may finally have a shot at achieving their dreams. But these amateurs are put to the test of a lifetime when routine training becomes a battle against real villains!
