It must be an effort to keep track of all of the characters in an anime, especially a shonen like My Hero Academia. But here we go, with another character slated to make their on-screen debut in My Hero Academia Season 5. Announced via the official My Hero Academia Twitter account, voice actress Misato Kawauchi will play a character named Burnin (real name Moe Kamiji), a Pro Hero at the Endeavor Agency.

Misato Kawauchi has appeared in a few other things besides My Hero Academia Season 5. She played Nozomi Aida in an episode of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, and Nana Kujo in Ultraman Taiga. The Burnin character in My Hero Academia Season 5 may be her biggest role yet, given the popularity of the series.
The fifth season of My Hero Academia first premiered in Japan on March 27. While both Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the anime in the West with English subtitles, only the latter is offering an English dub alongside the subbed version. Right now, the show is up to the “Joint Training” arc in the original manga series that pits Class 1A against Class 1B. Oh, “shonen” anime, you and your love for high school class wars never change.
