    Release Date: March 27th

    This wildly popular shonen anime is returning in April! Exactly what's coming isn't yet clear, but if it follows the manga, we'll be seeing a lot more of class 1-B, plus new developments with Izuku's quirk and the League of Villains. If nothing else, they have to deal with Gigantomachia, who's been on the loose since Season 4. With plenty of exciting plot points left to go, here's hoping that this will be an amazing season.
