What is My Hero Academia Season 5 About?
Born in a world where 80% of the population has some special powers, “Quirks,” Izuku Midoriya, can’t get over his childhood dream of becoming the greatest hero on the planet. Despite the lack of talent, he impresses his ideal All Might with his persistence and act of heroism, who grants him his One For All Quirk. Surprising everyone, Izuku successfully enrolls in Japan’s top Hero Academy, U.A. High School, where he trains under the watchful eyes of All Might to become a hero one day.
Unfortunately, becoming the successor of the greatest hero on the planet is no easy task as Izuku finds himself fighting the evil forces of Tomura Shigaraki and All For One. As the story unfolds, One For All’s secrets come to light as Izuku finds out the dark relationship that it shares with the Quirk of the antagonists. The season 4 finale ends on an exciting note, with Izuku meeting previous One For All users in a dream and wakes up with his hand glowing. It’s likely that he will be able to control his Quirk to a higher degree in the upcoming season while he discovers more about its powers.
Tomura Shigaraki appears to be testing his forces by sending Nomu to fight Endeavor; therefore, we can expect an all-out attack on the hero society. Moreover, All For One is slowly backing away from his role of leader of the villains while Tomura takes over, but is this his real intention? We may get to know answers to all our questions in the upcoming season.
