The hype is real as My Hero Academia’s manga continues its Final Arc that has been jam-packed with some of the most intense battles between the heroes of UA Academy and the villains of the League of Villains.

Artists, who are fans of the shonen franchise, have created some stunning works of art inspired by the series, but some of the most interesting art to date are the pieces that have been inspired by the fantasy A.U. that was teased in a closing sequence by Studio Bones.

Official video of the My Hero Academia Season 2 Ending Theme 2.

My Hero Academia’s A.U. fantasy world is intricately detailed

The My Hero Academia Season 2 ending theme 2 video opens with the world’s hero Deku saying “goodbye” to his mother and encountering Uraraka, who is dressed up like a witch/sorcerer, and Ida, who is dressed up like a noble knight. Next, we see Todoroki at the top of a cliff dressed like a dashing prince and riding a white horse. After that, we see Bakugo looking like a Viking warrior/Conan the Barbarian mounted on a dragon.

Deku and Bakugo are about to fight each other, but that’s when a bunch of monsters appear. Bakugo reluctantly teams up with Deku and his friends, and they begin to battle the monsters together. Other students from U.A. are shown as medieval-style characters, but the villains from My Hero Academia have not been depicted as medieval-style characters yet.

If Studio Bones decides to turn Shimura or All for One into villains they’re sure to be terrifying. The final scene in the credits is of Deku and Bakugo facing off against a “Demon Lord”. At the very end, Deku uses his ultimate sword energy attack, which takes a form that resembles All Might.

My Hero Academia’s A.U. fantasy world inspires artists

This My Hero Academia sword-and-sorcery, fantasy alternate universe even inspired Kohei Horikoshi’s assistant, Yoshinori, to share some new artwork of Deku and Bakugo on Twitter depicted as a hero/knight and barbarian/Viking once again in a world where dragons, monsters and magical beasts run rampant.

Yoshinori also appears to be a Deku X Uraraka shipper due some fan art he created of the couple together, which he shared on his Twitter account.

Make sure to check out Yoshinori’s Twitter account to see his steamy fan art of the rabbit hero character Mirko! Mirko doesn’t attend UA academy, but she kicked some serious butt in the War Arc (which will be adapted in the sixth anime season) and showed that she is one of the top heroes of Hero Society.

My Hero Academia fans hope to see a spin-off anime series based on this interesting fantasy A.U., but hopefully we will see more of it in the ending sequences of the anime, or in the last chapters of the manga.

Kamila Lupin made a YouTube video that highlights some of the best My Hero Academy Fantasy A.U. art out there:

Artist Toshinorange makes a few of the characters look like medieval pirates!

Mia’s depiction of Tsu and Tokoyami as medieval-style characters is adorable. Tokoyami’s extension of power “Shadow” became a large, raven-like creature that he can ride.
