My Hero Academia is one of the most popular anime show right now, as well as one of the best-selling manga in recent years. So, it’s only natural that fans would wonder if My Hero Academia is available on Netflix or not? In this article, we will answer that question!
The anime series is based upon the manga of the same name by author Kōhei Horikoshi. The first issue of the manga was released in Japan in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on July 7th, 2014 and the translated volume, published by Viz Media, was later released on August 4th, 2015 to the American audiences. The manga became an instant hit, and is still getting more and more popular, which was the reason why the anime series was commissioned and the very first episode was aired on April 3rd, 2016 on Japanese TV. The anime currently has 3 seasons and is gaining more and more fans with every passing day.
Since more people are discovering the show, and fans are recommending it to their friends, there’s one question that arises – where to watch it? The most common answer is Netflix or any other streaming service, but can you stream My Hero Academia on Netflix or not? Let’s find out!
Is My Hero Academia Available on Netflix?
Without wasting much of your time, I’ll just get straight to point. Technically, yes, the show is available on Netflix and you can stream it online if you were in India. And that too, without the availability of the English Dub.
Due to the licensing rights of the English Dub, the anime show is not available in North America, Europe and Australia.
So, to put it bluntly, My Hero Academia is currently not available on Netflix, at least at the moment. You can, however, use some of the other streaming services to enjoy the show if you want to catch up on the latest seasons.
Where Can I Watch My Hero Academia Online?
If you are fan of the show, then there are plenty of streaming services you can use to watch it online. The most popular ones that currently have the anime are Hulu, Funimation and Crunchyroll.
Hulu has both the English dubbed and subbed version, Funimation has the English dubbed version and Crunchyroll has the English subbed version of the show. So, fans living in the United States have a total of 3 options to watch the adventures of Izuku Midoriya.
For fans living in Europe and Australia, you can watch the show on Funimation and Crunchyroll without any issues!
When Can We Expect My Hero Academia on Netflix?
Due to the copyright issues, the show may not be released on the streaming service for a very long time. If the license of the show ran out for Crunchyroll, it’s possible that the Japanese dub may move to Netflix; but that’s just speculation and doesn’t mean that it will happen. Moreover, Funimation Entertainment have produced the English dubbed version of the show so it’s only natural that it will be available on their own streaming service.
This means that you are not likely to see My Hero Academia on Netflix any time soon; and even if it happens, it will take a long, very long time.
I hope that helped clear the confusion regarding the availability of the show on Netflix. We’ll keep the article updated in the future in case things change and the show’s released on the streaming service, so stay connected!
