But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies
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.
