FUNimation Entertainment has announced that it will release a new English-dubbed episode (Episode 84) of the My Hero Academia television anime series on April 12, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. FUNimation explained that its staff have been “working around the clock” to find a way to bring more simuldub content to its website during the COVID-19 pandemic. Production team members and voice actors have set up remote dubbing stations from home.
The company had announced on March 18, 2020 that it had temporarily paused its production of its seasonal simuldubs for anime, as it is adjusting its simuldub production to allow for production members to work from home. Simuldubs are paused for shows from the Winter 2020 season and the Spring 2020 season. English-subtitled simulcast releases are still continuing as normal.
