Plus Ultra! Primitive Skateboarding is partnering with My Hero Academia to release a number of skateboard decks at 3:00 pm PST (6:00 pm EST) on Thursday, November 25th, 2021 just in time for Black Friday.
A simple image posted to social media site Instagram has Primitive’s logo side-by-side with that of My Hero Academia on a plain black background. While the post has only mentioned decks, it’s entirely possible that an apparel line-up may come at a later date, but is not confirmed at this time.
My Hero Academia joins popular anime favourites Naruto: Shippuden, Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball with this collaboration by Primitive. In previous collections decks, wheels, shirts, hoodies, jackets, hats, pants, socks and banners were made available with characters of these franchises on Primitive’s web site and at skate shops in Canada and the United States.
My Hero Academia has enjoyed a surge of popularity as of late with the North American release of the film My Hero Academia: The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission and the wrap-up of the anime’s fifth season, with a sixth season in the works.
A new video shared to @primitiveapparel on Instagram reveals there are five designs in total. Decks will have images of Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, Katsuki Bakugo, Endeavor and All Might.
