Official Trailers 





Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies


Characters and Cast


In addition to the usual suspects—including Daiki Yamashita as Izuku Midoriya, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Katsuki Bakugo, Kenta Miyake as All Might, and many more—My Hero Academia has some new cast members getting in on the action for season five. One of the previously confirmed additions was Soichiro Hoshi (Goro Akechi in Persona 5), who voices the first-gen holder of One for All. 


The official Twitter account also confirmed Sayaka Kinoshita as Mirko earlier this month.
