Ahead of the upcoming premiere of the sixth season of My Hero Academia, fans can look forward to two season 5 OVAs in the meantime. While the episodes were initially just teased with a summer premiere on Crunchyroll, it was confirmed today during Anime Expo that they’ll hit the streaming service on August 1.

As per Crunchyroll, the episode summaries are as follows:

“HLB”

“HLB stands for “Hero League of Baseball” — it is a baseball league founded by pro-heroes who love baseball!

It’s game day! The last game of HLB championship is between Gang Orca and Shishido’s two rival agencies. They form a team (“Orcas” and “Lionels”) to compete. In the world of HLB, there is no rule – using their quirks is of course accepted. However, just when the game is about to finish, they are interrupted by a villain. Who will be the winner of HLB!?

<Players’ lineup>

Orcas: Gang Orca, Shoji, Jiro, Kaminari, Mineta, Sero, Shiozaki, Shinrin Kamui, and Mt. Lady

Lionels: Shishido, Ojiro, Sato, Shishida, Shoda, Fat Gum, Kirishima, Amajiki, and Tetsutetsu”

“Laugh! As if you are in hell”

Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki participate in internship under the No.1 hero, Endeavor’s agency.

One of their tasks these days is to find a villain (“Smiley”) who draws doodles in the city. However, since the urgency is so low, they let other pro-heroes solve this case.

One day, Smiley draws a doodle on Endeavor’s house! Being furious, Endeavor himself and the 1-A trio go out to get the villain. However, Smiley’s quirk turns out to be something ridiculous but powerful… It is to make anyone who looks into his eyes laugh hysterically!

Can the team capture the villain and stop laughing!?

The OVAs will be available in the following territories: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, LATAM, and Europe.

My Hero Academia is a Japanese superhero manga series, written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi, which was later adapted into an anime series. Set in a world where a majority of the population is born with superpowers called quirks, it follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a quirkless boy who dreams of becoming a superhero. After crossing paths with Japan’s number one hero and his personal idol, All Might, Midoriya is chosen to be his successor and is accepted into a prestigious hero academy, U.A. High School.

Season 6 of My Hero Academia is set to premiere this October.
