Be a Hero with Samurai Japan/”My Hero Academia” Collaboration

What does it mean to be a hear? According to the Japan national baseball team (a.k.a. Samurai Japan), “being a hero” means working hard to be the best you can be. So as they strive to be the best baseball team possible, the heroes of My Hero Academia strive to be the best boys and girls possible…


To that end, Samurai Japan and My Hero Academia are teaming up for a spring “BE A HERO!” collaboration.



The officla collaboration art consists of a pair of matching visuals — one featuring members of Samurai Japan, the other featuring characters from My Hero Academia. This art will be available on merchandise sold during the event, which is currently still being designed.


On February 28 and March 1, during their games against Chinese Taipei, there will also be special “My Hero Academia Seat” tickets printed.


More information will be available over time on the official collaboration page.
