Funimation officially announces that My Hero Academia season 5 will premiere in a few days on March 27, 2021. This Saturday as of this writing, in fact. The premiere will happen across a bunch of Funimation territories, including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Brazil, and Mexico. You can enjoy the anime in either the original Japanese audio with English subtitles, or listen to the English dub voice actors/actresses go to town. Lastly, the premiere will also happen on Hulu, so those of you with a Hulu account can enjoy the show there too.

Me Hero Academia: The Season 5 Sneak Peek

Trailer says it all if you’re familiar with the manga. Then again, if you are, you’re already spoiled.

To hype you guys up for the fifth season of My Hero Academia (if you haven’t already been), let’s give you all a sneak peek. Season 5 is all about the Joint Training arc. We’ll get to see our heroes of Class 1-A being pitted against their fellow students of Class 1-B in a joint training exercise.

The class of side characters. Very popular side characters though.

In-universe in My Hero Academia, the goal of the exercise is to see how much each class has grown since their entry into U.A. High School. Even out-universe, the goal is the same. What better way to show how powerful each class has become by having them fight mock battles with each other? That is, unless you want to kill them off in death battles. However, the losses far, far outweigh the benefits of such a match here. So yeah, mock battles it is in My Hero Academia.


My Hero Academia season 5 will premiere on Funimation and Hulu on March 27, 2021. As of this writing, the anime premiere is only 3 days away on Saturday. Prepare for an epic clash of the classes on that day. If you’re already familiar with the manga though, you know what’s coming.
