To say that fans have been waiting a long time for My Hero Academia Season 5 is an understatement. Due to the global pandemic, the fifth season of the beloved anime has been delayed and postponed as the animation got done. Not to mention they were also making a third movie for the franchise that’ll come out later this year. But, the wait is officially over, as the premiere episode of season five, dubbed “Episode Zero”, has come.
As for how you can watch it, the Subbed and Dubbed (meaning “Subtitled” versions and the version with American voice actors) are now available on Crunchyroll, Funimation and Hulu. And if you need to catch up on the previous seasons before watching Season 5, all four previous seasons are on there as well.
My Hero Academia Season 5 is aiming to be a very big season, not the least of which is that the end of Season 4 (which to many fans feels like a lifetime ago) ended with several major cliffhangers. Endeavor and Hawks defeated a massive Nomu, ensuring that the people know Endeavor can be their new No.1 hero with the absence of All Might due to his retirement.
What’s more, Izuku Midoriya, aka Deku, had a “vision” of sorts where he met the other members of One For All. And trailer for Season 5 indicate that the power he gets from them will grow…if his body can handle it.
There’s also the League of Villains who played a more silent role in Season 4 outside of characters like Twice and so they’re expected to appear much more based on what the season will tackle in conjunction with where the manga was at this time.
Finally, My Hero Academia Season 5 will bring Class 1-B into the spotlight and showcase a “training session” between the two classes.
The first episode is out now, and the season will continue to arrive week by week. So if you’re ready, it’s time to go beyond, Plus Ultra!
