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.

One of the better seasons of MHA. In my opinion, nothing will ever compare to that first season, but this season comes somewhat close. If you're a shonen fan like me, this season rules. There's so much more action than we're used to, and the major story gets pushed forward a little bit. I'm not going to lie, it feels like the writers are kind of "making it up as they go", as opposed to having a solid plan for the larger series, but that opinion is coming from someone who doesn't read the manga and doesn't know where any of this is going.

Regardless ...

Mixed Feelings
I had to skip the first arc for the most part because it was so boring, barely anything happened that couldn't have been summed up into like 5-6 episodes. I was not interested in anything that was happening besides Deku's stuff. There weren't any stakes that we cared about besides the loose threat of Class A losing to Class B, nothing in most of these episodes really moved the story along either.

Though there were some parts of this season I liked (I haven't read the manga). I liked the villain backstories since they made you think more deeply about the implications of living in a ...

A 10 episode dragged-out filler arc. An advertisement for a mediocre movie. And a butchered, overhyped villain arc. That's My Hero Academia Season 5 in a nutshell.

Previous seasons of My Hero have been decent all things considered; Season 4 being more mixed compared to the others with some disappointing lows, but also having some of the highest highs in the series so far. By comparison, Season 5 is completely unsalvageable.

It immediately hits us with 10 episodes of filler that doesn't progress the story or develop any of the characters AT ALL. The premise behind Class 1A vs 1B is completely useless; forcing an already oversized ...
