Netflix announced on Monday that it will stream the fifth season of the My Hero Academia anime in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and India, with new episodes weekly.

The anime premiered in Japan last Saturday. Ani-One Asia is also streaming the anime in Southeast Asia. The new season will cover the "Joint Training" arc of the original manga that pits class 1A against class 1B.

The anime's first 13-episode season premiered in April 2016. The 25-episode second season premiered in April 2017, and the third season premiered in April 2018 and ran for 25 episodes. The fourth season premiered in Japan in October 2019, and aired for 25 episodes. A two-episode original video anime for the franchise streamed in Japan in August 2020.

The My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film opened in Japan in July 2018. The second film, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (Boku no Hero Academia the Movie -Heroes: Rising-), opened in Japan in December 2019.

A third anime film titled My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes' Mission will premiere on August 6. Original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi will again serve as chief supervisor and original character designer.

Horikoshi launched the manga series in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in July 2014. Viz Media publishes the manga in English digitally and in print in North America. Shueisha's MANGA Plus service also publishes the manga in English digitally.

The manga has entered its "final act" as of its 306th chapter last week.
