With My Hero Academia set to return soon, Toho has revealed a brand-new poster featuring key art from the popular anime series' upcoming fourth season.
The poster, shared to Crunchyroll's Twitter account, features fan-favorite characters like Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, as well as new or recently-introduced heroes who will all be major players in the upcoming "Shie Hassaikai" arc. In the center of the poster is the series's aforementioned main character, Izuku, alongside U.A. upperclassman Mirio Togata,who was introduced late last season, with a connection between the two being teased.

Of the characters featured in the poster, only two have yet to make their anime debut. Anime-only fans are surely excited to finally see fan favorite manga hero Pro Hero Fat Gum and what exactly his "Fat Absorption" powers can do. In Season 4, viewers will also be introduced to Eri, the mysterious young girl who plays a key role in this season's arc.
Kai Chisaki, Season 4's main villain, takes up a large amount of space in the poster, looming ominously in the background with his red eyes and shadowed face. With a quirk named "Overhaul," fans can expect him and his quirk to mean bad news for our heroes.
My Hero Academia has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2014 and 242 chapters currently available. The series has proven quite popular, inspiring a manga spinoff titled My Hero Academia: Vigilantes. The anime has also spawned one tie-in movie, with a second on the way. Legendary Entertainment also has the rights to a live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia, which could very well show up in theaters sooner than later.
My Hero Academia Season 4 will be available to stream on FunimationNow starting Oct. 12.
