My Hero Academia Hero Fes is back and better than ever! It’s been three years since the last HERO FES, but it looks like 2022 will be right on track for the events we love.

The big news is that My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 1 will receive a special advance screening at the event.

As of this writing, the event will be in-person only. And sadly, no cosplay or waiting outside the event in the early morning. Face masks are mandatory. Now, on to the main event!
