UA Academy's Class 1-A has been the focus of a substantial amount of public attention due to the multiple villain attacks they have faced over the past school year. This attention has left Class 1-A's rivals, Class 1-B, feeling quite bitter. Desiring to prove their skills, they look forward to the opportunity that has been given to them: a set of mock battles between the students of each class.

The classes are split into squads of four, each of which is tasked with capturing the other group members. The winner is the group who first secures all of the opposing team. While this sounds simple, a curveball is thrown into the mix with the inclusion of General Course Student Hitoshi Shinsou, who wishes to transfer into the Hero Course. Despite using his training with Class 1-A's homeroom teacher Shouta "Eraserhead" Aizawa to prove that he's capable of being a real hero, he is still far behind the others due to his lack of experience. However, Shinsou is determined to overcome this challenge.

Thus begins the fiery competition between Class 1-A and 1-B as each tries to prove that they are superior to the other.

I did enjoy the plot idea of the first couple of episodes of this show, especially with all the different and unique quirks used in the battles between classmates of 1a and 1b. It's nice how they bring back the fights from season 2 and make them even better with their new special moves and all that. However, in my opinion, the battles were just so boring, and it was the only reason why I gave up watching the show and started to speed read the manga. I knew that the fights between both classes are only a couple of chapters long, and after that, read more

The pros of Boku no Hero Academia s5 are pretty obvious. The characters are still fun, well developed quirks, worldbuilding, etc. Storywise there's not so much so far. The art and sound are still fine to me. Whatever.

I just want to focus on the bad parts of s5 mostly. The class A vs B story arc sounds pretty fun in concept. Here's my problems with it though. (The first fight has less problems than the second in my opinion).
1. Everyone is still describing everything to the viewer as if everyone watching is a toddler. We can see the action on screen and read more

Season five of MHA is here, and while I do personally enjoy the series, I do have to say that it might be within your best interests to wait for the series to either be finished, or wait until a few episodes have come out in order to progress with it. Not to say it's bad, but more that it at current stage, may take weeks to really go somewhere. Even if you understand the plot, understand what it's doing. Even then, it can be quite tiresome.

I normally don't fully agree with the idea that 'Read the manga it's better' type of deal, as read more

A late bloomer like me got into this show when the show was at its peak when the show had already had 3 seasons, and I started the manga and the anime at the same time and I was amazed. I thought there wasn’t even going to be a show that stands up against the like of Naruto but this show proved its worth and stole the hearts of teenagers of this era. From people calling it the future of the shounen genre and the bringer of the succeeding age group, “Boku No Hero Academia” or most commonly known as “My Hero Academia”. Written and read more
