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 understand that a lot of people that are starting to dislike the show are the same type of fans that love dragon ball z because all they want to see if an anime with baseless plots and zero storyline but has fights throughout. This is not one of them and it’s okay to admit it for yourself.

Having said that, this season has been the best so far with how it touches the heroes, their stories and backgrounds. We’ll definitely get to see more fights but I love that they’re giving more insight into all the important characters of the show. This is important ...

Mixed Feelings
Probably the weakest season of MHA. I think that for a few reasons. I am mainly attracted to this show for the hype moments. Characters "breaking" their limits. Yelling loudly while destroying villains or themselves. It's a good time. The slow character progression in the students and villains is a bonus. But this season barely had any hype moments. There's a couple of breakthroughs for the plot - like Black Whip and the evolution of the league of villains - but the filler in-between is so boring that it felt like a chore to get through. It's not offensively bad but it's such a step ...

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 ...
