The ANN Aftershow
My Hero Academia Season 5 FINALE Reaction & Review

by Lynzee Loveridge, Jacki Jing, & The Cartoon Cipher,

It was all leading up to...this? Jacki, Lynzee, and AJ discuss the season finale for My Hero Academia, our overall review of the season, where the anime can go from here, and whether it lived up to its stakes. Also, the Mario animated film cast news, everything you need to know about the upcoming season of Demon Slayer, and our top five most anticipated anime for fall 2021.

Also a quick note, The Aftershow will go on a two-week break following this week so that Lynzee doesn't melt into an anime puddle during Preview Guide. We'll be back on October 18!
