The production team for the My Hero Academia anime franchise has revealed a new key visual and official title for the second season five OVA episode. The OVA will be titled “Warae! Jigoku no you ni” (roughly translated as “Laugh! As If You Are in Hell” in English) and will be screened theatrically in Japan this summer from June 16-19. 

This comes after the announcement of another OVA episode centered on Hero League Baseball this past May, which will also screen in theaters in June. The second OVA episode will feature Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki during their internship at Endeavor’s pro hero agency and will follow their battle against the supervillain, Smiley. All three characters are highlighted in the new visual, along with Endeavor and his sidekick, Burnin.

These anime-original episodes will debut before the highly anticipated premiere of My Hero Academia’s sixth season, which is set to air this coming fall. The fifth season aired from March 27, 2021 to September 25, 2021.

My Hero Academia is based on the manga series by Kouhei Horikoshi, which was first serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 7, 2014. 34 tankoubon volumes have been published in total as of May 2022. The anime television series first began in 2016, inspiring three anime films in addition to the TV series. Both the movies and the series are produced by Bones

Crunchyroll streams My Hero Academia in English for North America. It describes the series as:

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.
