IT SEEMS THAT SEASON 5 OF MY HERO ACADEMIA BROKE A RECORD IN HOW MANY FANS WATCHED ITS PREMIERE, AND THE FIGURES PROVE IT
Yesterday the second episode of Season 5 of My Hero Academia premiered. Unlike the previous one, which in part had original content – that is to say, filler – this week’s one entered history.
However, it seems that from the first there were already many people waiting to see the return of Deku and company. At least in a well-known online community, and it is from there that a new record arrives that is quite significant.
MY HERO ACADEMIA SURPASSES OTHER POPULAR ANIME
In this case on the My Anime List site. What happens is that a function is implemented there that allows fans to mark what they are observing.
This is how the adventures of Izuku Midoriya and his classmates from Class 1-A of the U.A. Academy were placed in the first place of preferences. It came out that this anime was the most watched in its premiere, surpassing other series. Among them is Shingeki no Kyojin.
My Hero Academia placed first with almost 147 thousand (146,902). This is how it beat Season 4 of Shingeki no Kyojin (144,668), as well as Season 2 of The Promised Neverland (131,994) and Dr. Stone: Stone Wars (110,129).
Sure, all these figures are interesting, but we are sure that if Crunchyroll or Funimation shared official numbers, they would be much higher. Not for nothing do they have access to this type of internal data.
SEASON 5 EXCEEDED WHAT HAS BEEN ACHIEVED BY THE PREVIOUS
Crunchyroll is the one who tends to share this type of information more openly, although it does so every few months. The problem with My Anime List is that for the most part it only reflects the tastes and hobbies of English-speaking fans.
But at least it serves as a marker of the likes of your community. Especially when the data comes from thousands of Japanese animation fans. It’s clear that Season 5 of the anime got off to a good start.
This new wave of My Hero Academia episodes surpassed Season 3 and Season 4. The first went from 107 thousand, and the second from 103 thousand.
These data probably reflect a growing interest in the animated adaptation of Kohei Horikoshi’s work. Perhaps it will continue to increase with the announcement that the final act of the manga has already begun.
Nobody knows when the ending of the story is missing, but now it is clear that it is something that will happen.
