Can you believe Season 5 is almost here? Recently, the official pages of My Hero Academia revealed the new key art for Season 5. Does it feature the League of Villains? No. How about the previous One for All users? Also no. In this brand-new visual, Kohei Horikoshi himself gives the spotlight to none other than the members of Class 1-B! Season 5 of My Hero Academia is scheduled for March 27, 2021.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Visual
The new key art showcases Class 1-A fan favorites like Midoriya, Bakugou, Todoroki, Urakaka, and Yaoyoruzu. On the left side of the poster, however, members of Class 1-B are given the spotlight. It features Itsuka Kendo, Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, and, of course, my personal favorite Neito Monoma.
According to Siliconera, there are other characters in the poster that the My Hero Academia manga’s “Joint Training” storyline highlights. Anime-only fans might not be too familiar with these new faces. This includes Yui Kodai, Setsuna Tokage, Shihai Kuroiro, and Jutota Shishida. It also features Pony Tsuntori who had a brief but hilarious scene in the anime. It would seem that My Hero Academia Season 5 will finally introduce the rest of Class 1-B to the anime audience.
You might notice a familiar character in the middle of the visual. When I first saw this, I immediately thought of Aizawa, with the tape wrapping around him and the uninterested eyes. After a closer look, you can tell that this is, in fact, Hitoshi Shinso. Shinso was the mind control student who almost got the best of Midoriya during the U.A. Sports Festival. Judging from his positioning in the poster (and from his awesome new look) he might be playing a larger role in the upcoming season. At least, I hope so.
Season 5 Trailer and Third Movie
A couple of months ago a trailer for My Hero Academia Season 5 was released. In addition, the third My Hero movie was also teased late last year. A lot of My Hero Academia goodness is in the works this year. As a fan, I have no complaints.
