Upcoming anime My Hero Academia Season 6 released on September 26 morning a special character visual for the series’ Shoto Todoroki along with the voice actor Yuki Kaji’s comment on the visual and the new season. The official website also announced that, other than Todoroki, four characters, Izuku Midoriya also known as Deku, Katsuki Bakugo, Tomura Shigaraki, and Dabi, will get special visuals.
The newly released visual shows a student of Class 1-A at U.A. High School, Shoto Todoroki with an intense look. The illustration writes his name along with his quirk Half-Cold Half Hot.
Yuki Kaji is voicing the male character in the anime adaptation and describes the visual as:
His intense look left an impression on me, which seems to represent developments in the sixth season. His sullen face showed in the film “World Heroes’ Mission” is good, but those cool eyes that are telling he is the Shoto Todoroki are also wonderful, you know.
The 37-year-old voice actor also made a message for fans on the sixth season:
Season 6 is finally starting. Todoroki and other characters have gone through many deadly battles so far. I’m sure they have worked hard enough, but it’s going to move up another notch. You could call it hell. But… heroes do show hopes in the situation, and that’s what I believe the show “My Hero Academia” is great. I’d like you to fight with them together! I hope for your support! Go Beyond! PLUS ULTRA!”
