My Hero Academia – Season 2 (Part 2)

Episode 28 dub starts 7/29! New SimulDub episodes, Saturdays @ 5:30AM ET


Things got so crazy in the last arc of My Hero Academia! But the hype for Season Two is even more insane. We know you’ve been loving the same-day SimulDub™ which has been our hero project for the season. At first, we were only going to be able to bring you 6 episodes of dubs that air the same day as the subs, but studio BONES in Japan and our team at Funimation kept up the pace for a whopping 14 episodes!

The fan response was so great we plan to do more same-day dubs in the future. But for now, episode 27 was our last same-day scheduled for Season Two of My Hero Academia, and we will be returning to our usual dub schedule of airing two weeks after Japan. Stay tuned for the episode 28 SimulDub™ airing July 29th, only on FunimationNow!
