'My Hero Academia' Season 5 Episode 4: Release Date and How to Watch Online

The battle between Class A and Class B officially starts this week as episode 4 of My Hero Academia Season 5 approaches.

Fans of the popular anime know the powers and participants from Class A, but this arc will give viewers a taste of what the other side can do. We've seen some of Class B from previous seasons, but there are still some new faces and new Quirks to behold as the two classes compete to show they have grown closer to becoming professional heroes.

In the most recent episode, fans saw the return of Shinso the UA student who wanted to be a professional hero despite the school classifying his Quirk as not fit to become one. Through his sheer determination, Shinso is now in the hero course and is looking to show his teachers and the other students what he's made of.

Episode 4 of My Hero Academia Season 5 will surely leave fans in awe as the battle between Class A and Class B continues.

Check out the preview for the next episode of My Hero Academia below, and find out more info on the episode further down.
