“To Be Hero” is a popular anime series that follows the story of a hapless superhero named Dashu who is transformed into a pudgy, middle-aged man with superpowers. The show premiered its first season in 2016, and the second season in 2018. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news about a third season. Here is everything we know so far about “To Be Hero” Season 3“.
Bilibili announced the arrival of To Be Hero Season 3, also known as “Tu Bian Yingxiong X (To Be Hero X),” during their 2022 annual event. The event also included announcements for several returning sequels from their 2023-2023 lineup, including Fairies Album Season 4, Link Click Season 2, and Rakshasa Street Season 3, among others.
As of March 2023, there has been no official announcement regarding the release date for To Be Hero Season 3. However, based on the previous seasons’ airing schedules, the release date may be some time in 2024. We will update this section once an official announcement has been made.
To Be Hero Season 3 is being produced through a collaborative effort between several Chinese anime production companies, including Pb Animation, Paper Plane Animation Studio, Studio LAN, and B.Cool Studio. These companies are well-regarded in the industry and have been involved in the production of some of the most popular donghua series in recent years. Notably, they were previously affiliated with Haoliners Animation League and have worked on hit shows such as The Daily Life of the Immortal King, No Doubt In Us, and Link Click
The main cast of “To Be Hero” is expected to return for the third season, including the main voice actors for the series – Xin Shan as Xiaomin, and Hameng Tute as Dashu. Currently, we don’t know yet if To Be Hero Season 3 will also get a Japanese dubbed version just like its sequels but if it did, Japanese seiyuu Kenjiro Oda and Tsukino Moa will surely reprise their respective roles.
Details about the plot of “To Be Hero” Season 3 are scarce. However, fans can expect the third season to pick up where the second season left off and will see the father-and-daughter duo together once again since the 2nd season only features Xiaomin mostly.
Despite the lack of official information about the upcoming season, it is possible that To Be Hero Season 3 will be a standalone sequel, offering a fresh take on the series. The previously released trailer appears to depict a new and distinct storyline that is not directly connected to the previous season. Alternatively, the new season may be part of a larger universe within the Hero universe, as was the case with the second season.
This is a world where heroes are created by people’s trust, and the hero who gains the most trust is known as X. In this world, people’s trust can be counted by statistics, and these values will be reflected on everyone’s wrist. As long as enough trust points are obtained, ordinary people can also have superpowers and become superheroes who can save the world. However, the ever-changing trust value makes the hero’s road full of unknowns…Source: Bilibili, auto-translated
