With season five underway with Funimation’s My Hero Academia, the focus is on the villains for the new exciting storyline of our favorite heroes and villains. Voice actor Jason Liebrecht returns to handle the English voice of blue flame fireballer Dabi for the upcoming season.
After the UA students constantly thwarting the plans of the League of Villains once again, the League of Villains is dead broke and going nowhere fast. All For One’s enormous bodyguard Gigantomachia arrives to pulverize them into shape. But before they’re back on their feet, the sinister Meta Liberation Army, led by Re-Destro, comes out of the woodwork to destroy the League and anyone who tries to regulate the Quirks.
This multi-episode arc is dedicated to the bad guys, old and new, of My Hero Academia and will be an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, including Himiko Toga in a bloody showdown and new insights into Tomura Shigaraki’s tortured past. What secrets will the League of Villains unlock within themselves as they clash against their greatest opponents yet?
The first 13 episodes of My Hero Academia season five adapted the Joint Training Arc, which saw the UA’s Class 1-A and Class 1-B face off in the team battles of strengths and wits. The Endeavor Agency Arc just wrapped up, where Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki try their hand at Pro Hero work with the current number one hero, Endeavor.
