My Hero Academia continues to surpass streaming expectations

18 May, 2021

My Hero Academia is continuing to surpass all kinds of streaming expectations with Season 5 of the anime series! The series recently returned for its fifth season as part of the Spring 2021 schedule, and with the celebration of its fifth anniversary Kohei Horikoshi's original manga series has been on a bigger high than ever. It seems anime has hit a major wave of new popularity in the United States over the past year (if the success of films such as Demon Slayer: Mugen Train had been any indication), and that's good news for My Hero Academia.

My Hero Academia has already been a major staple of the anime fandom in the West before heading into Season 5, but it seems interest is climbing each new week as a new report from Parrot Analytics has revealed that My Hero Academia is now the most demanded anime in the United States as of this past week. It's the fourth in-demand series overall, but took the top spot for anime over hits like Attack on Titan.
