My Hero Academia Season 5 Release Date, Cast & Plot

My Hero Academia wasn’t much of a hit initially but as time passed by, more and more fans got sucked into the fandom until the show reached different parts of the world.

The series explores an antithesis of the usual superhero plot where a person is born different and uses his or her unique ability to save people.

Plot of My Hero Academia Season 5

When a baby was born with a unique power, weird phenomena start happening all over the world and caused other people to develop supernatural abilities – known as “Quirks”. Because of the growing number of people with quirks, being a hero suddenly became a career option. Izuku Midoriya was not born with an ability while 80% of the population were so that made him different, weird, quirkless.

Fast forward 14 years, we see Izuku Midoriya watching Heroes defeat a monstrous villain as he starts to wonder if he could do the same.

For My Hero Academia Season 5, the characters will be pitted against each other and will follow Chapter 195 of the manga, entitled “Clash! Class A vs. Class B!”

The Cast of My Hero Academia Season 5

Based on the manga, the cast will remain the same and include:
