Wondering why the Class 1-B heroes feature prominently in the new visual? That’s because My Hero Academia Season 5 will follow the manga’s Joint Training Arc. Without going into spoiler territory, this arc will see the heroes of Class 1-A and 1-B compete in a Joint Training Battle. Specifically, each class will face off in a series of five team matches.
