To hype the upcoming Season 6, My Hero Academia released new character visuals for its antagonists, Shigaraki Tomura and Dabi!

My Hero Academia Season 5 Recap
My Hero Academia‘s 5th season aired from March 27 to September 25, 2021 with a total of 25 episodes. It premiered on YTV, NTV, and on streaming sites such as Netflix, Crunchyroll, Viu, Bilibili, and many more. Funimation also streamed the episodes, and subsequently released the English dub last April 2021.
In this season, the rivalry between Class 1-A and Class 1-B from UA Academy became intense. This is because Class 1-A has been receiving public attention recently as they have encountered multiple villain attacks in the past year. Class 1-B then intended to showcase their skills against Class 1-A in a series of mock battles. What they did not expect is the inclusion of Hitoshi Shinsou, a General Course student who wanted to transfer to the Hero Course. Hitoshi is still struggling to catch up because he does not have much experience. He did train with Class 1-A’s homeroom teacher, Shouta “Eraserhead” Aizawa, so he is determined to prove himself.
