Tomura Shigaraki’s Voice Actor Talks About My Hero Academia Anime’s 3rd Season

We all know that the third season of Kōhei Horikoshi’s action-packed superhero manga series My Hero Academia will arrive in 2018 which covers the School Trip Arc, and it has announced that work on the project has already begun, but at the moment we don’t know the premiere date but a special interview revealed regarding the third season with voice actor Kouki Uchiyama of Tomura Shigaraki.

The interview is published on the official website of the My Hero Academia anime discussing Kouki Uchiyama work in the previous seasons of the anime and he also commented on the third season. When a question asked, what will happen to his character Tomura Shigaraki in the third season.

He replied,

Shigaraki is a character who does not appear much, but since he is returning, I decided to read the manga just a little bit about the character in the manga. The situation is a  trial and error, but depending on the original work, I think at a point it’s better to know everything that is going to happen in the future, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes you can overdo it if you go and prepare yourself and act with a certain emotion just because you know what is going to happen. Obviously, the staff will tell you the important details to know about the character, so I think my opinion now is quite right. And I don’t know much about what will happen in the third season of My Hero Academy, but I’m looking forward to it.

Uchiyama also said that,

I want to know what will happen to Dabi, Toga and their new affiliation with the Villains League, and how their relationship with Shigaraki will develop. Looking into the future clashes of the Deku and all the heroes will be the most remarkable moment for me.

In the comment regarding Shigaraki has no friends Uchiyama laughed and replied that:

What are friends? I do not know what will happen, but since there are many interesting characters it seems that there will be many harmonize relationships between them and I am looking forward to seeing it.

Uchiyama ended the interview with a message saying that a lot of fans support Deku and the heroes but fans should also pay attention to them as the Villains will also change as the story progresses.

The first promotional video of the third season:

The third season of the series will be focusing on “School Trip Arc” and confrontation between the heroes and supervillains with further details yet to be announced.


The appearance of “quirks,” newly discovered superpowers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.

Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!

Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.
