Boku No Hero Academia Season 5 Plot Synopsis
The story of My Hero Academia started off by narrating the story of Izuku Midoriya. He is a boy born without superpowers, in a world where most humans are been born or develop superpowers by the age of four.
Izuku is bullied for being born without any power. Yet, he dreams of being a superhero, even after getting bullied by his closest friend, Katsuki Bakugo. However, his wishes come true when he meets All-Might. All-Might is Japan’s greatest hero. He passes down his powers to Izuku after noticing his potential.
All-Might enrolls him in the U.A. High School, for training him to become a Hero. The All-Might wishes Izuku to carry out his legacy by becoming his successor. In other words, superpowers are also known as Quirks in the My Hero Academia universe. There are infinite kinds of Quirks in this universe. No two individuals appear to possess the same superpowers.
What can fans expect from My Hero Academia Season 5?
In addition to the main plot, Boku No Hero Academia Season 5 promises greater battles between the hero classes at U.A. It will now focus more on the high school and its students, shining more of a spotlight on category 1-B.
Midoriya, who took the Hero name Deku, can unravel the meaning of his mysterious dream in season 5. This dream aired in the post-credit scene of the last episode in MHA Season 4. Hence, when Midoriya finds out what his dream means, he may be able to understand and control his Quirk better.
Season 5 ensures to the watchers that the entertainment it provides gets larger, making them enjoy every single episode. Thankfully, the My Hero Academia manga series provides enough story for a turnaround by Studio Bones.
Arguably, this manga is so far ahead that even My Hero Academia Season 6 and Season 7 can be safely assumed to be in the works.
