My Hero Academia Composer Explains the Changes in Music Over Five Seasons

My Hero Academia‘s music composer explained how the music changed over the course of the anime’s five seasons thus far! The series has evolved in a number of noticeable ways as Izuku Midoriya and the other young heroes of Class 1-A have changed over the course of their time at the school. This was the most noticeable in the fifth season as both the heroes and villains made significant changes ahead of what’s to come next in the sixth season too, but while it’s noticeable for those on the outside there are a lot of subtle changes from behind the scenes.

Speaking with Crunchyroll during Anime NYC, My Hero Academia composer Yuki Hayashi opened up about what goes into the music for the anime series and noted how he has tweaked the music across the various seasons to reflect all of the growth Izuku Midoriya and the others have been through since the series began. It’s an eye-opening look into how the anime’s been composed, and how these subtle differences help to emphasize the overall project.

“What’s interesting about it is that as each season goes on, the characters are also progressing and growing up. It’s kind of like when you see a toddler wearing clothing, it’s not going to fit them in the next season because they are already bigger,” Hayashi began. Elaborating further, Hayashi noted how there will always be some kind of root that stays the same no matter how much changes, “In that respect, there is still an element of that character that you recognize no matter how much they grow. So the core, thematic material of Todoroki, Midoriya, or the U.A. High School’s theme will be the same, but because each thing has been different each season, there are different things within.”

Continuing further, Hayashi explained, “It’s not creating new content necessarily, but rather building on the same themes. When Seasons 4 and 5 came out, there was a heavy focus on the villains as opposed to the heroes, so that might be the new thing because we’re introducing new sides to them. It’s interesting, because [My Hero Academia] progresses each season.” Now fans will know what to look ahead to for the sixth season of the anime!
