September is coming to a conclusion, which means the next round of anime is just around the corner. With the Summer 2022 anime season almost over, all eyes are on the Fall 2022 season and its packed lineup of debuts.

My Hero Academia Season 6 will be one of the first major shows to premiere in October 2022. The program has recently released a new poster featuring our favorite hot-cold Hero, Shoto Todoroki.

Shoto Todoroki’s new poster

The poster, as shown below, is dedicated to none other than Shoto Todoroki. The character poster depicts the Hero in his typical navy suit, yet there is no disputing the Hero is older here. Shoto looks like a true pro, with his red-white hair blown to one side and his blinged-out costume proving the half-and-half Hero is ready to fight:

Of course, if season six is any indication, Shoto will have to fight very soon. The series will resume on October 1st, with the anime’s season five cliffhanger promising that conflict will befall our heroes. A gang of the best in Japan has targeted the city where Shigaraki and his new liberation army have taken up home. With Hawks providing them with intel on the side, the heroes are ready to launch their ambush when season six premieres and Class 1-A has been asked to participate in the operation.

This means Shoto will be forced to fight with every other pro on the scene and will not be alone. Izuku, Bakugo, Ochaco, and Class 1-A will be present. Once the raid begins, the sheer magnitude of season six’s debut will drive fans berserk. And, as we all know, plans rarely go as planned when Shigaraki and All For One are concerned.

Shoto Todoroki’s ultimate super move

Shoto introduced a new technique that is totally unique to him after shocking Dabi with Phosphor, his variation of the Flashfire super move. After perfecting Flashfire, Shoto went to work on incorporating his ice into his father’s trademark technique to make it more powerful. He made a breakthrough when he started using his heart to pump consecutive streams of hot and cool blood throughout his body. He could perform the most sophisticated Flame super techniques without overheating or deadly Ice attacks without freezing himself using this Coldflame technique. When activated, Shoto’s chest area is covered in cool-to-the-touch flame.

Shoto’s new cooling technique enabled him to produce a fresh barrage of ice and fire attacks, which he used to pound Dabi into submission. Following the release of Phosphor, he unleashed another blast of his chilling flame in a widespread strike dubbed “Icebound Crash – Coldflame’s Pale Blade.” The attack fully extinguished Dabi’s flame and temporarily dazed the enemy, but it wasn’t enough to knock him unconscious. Shoto’s Coldflame had unfortunately reached its limits at that point.

It shut down just as he was about to launch his next strike, leaving him helpless. Dabi wasted no time in reestablishing his balance and rekindling his spark. He observed Shoto’s helplessness and charged again before his brother could gather, deciding their war. He’d forgotten about the Flaming Sidekickers who had accompanied Shoto to the combat in his haste. Endeavor’s sidekicks bravely jumped in front of Shoto just as Dabi’s assault hit, allowing him enough time to restart Coldflame.

Using his deep feelings for his students as fuel, Shoto unleashed his most powerful super-move yet: Great Glacial Aegir. When Coldflame became active again, he punched Dabi with all the ice he could conjure, eventually suffocating his brother’s flame and freezing everything around them for multiple blocks.
