Why do you need a VPN to watch My Hero Academia on Netflix from anywhere

MHA is not available in the US, or anywhere else. Sadly it appears that the super-hit anime series will not be available on the platform everywhere in the near future.

In the US, Hulu and Funimation had a licensing deal with My Hero Academia, so the series is only available on these platforms in the US.

By using a VPN, you can connect to a Japan server and unblock Japanese Netflix from anywhere in the world. When you connect to a Japan server, the VPN will assign you a Japanese IP address

Now when you visit Netflix, it will think you are trying to watch it from Japan, giving you access to My Hero Academia.

With a VPN you can also watch other popular anime like Jujutsu Kaisen Netflix series, Vinland Saga anime, and watch all 21 seasons of Naruto Shippuden on Netflix.

If you are using a VPN with Netflix, but cannot find My Hero Academia, there could be a lot of reasons behind the issue, with possible fixes that you can try such as:

  • Change VPN server. Connect to a different server location to get a fresh IP address, in case Netflix detected your old IP.
  • Clear browser cookies and cache. If you are streaming Netflix online via web browser, clear cookies and cache from Settings as they store information regarding your location.
