My Hero Academia | Season 5 OVAs Get a Crunchyroll Date

In an official statement, studio bones and Crunchyroll announced that the two My Hero Academia season five specials, titled HLB (Hero League of Baseball) and Laugh! As if you are in Hell!, will premiere around the world on August 1st.‎Hero League of Baseball is a baseball league founded by heroes who love this sport! It’s game day! The last of the championship between Orca and Shishido’s two rival agencies. They form a team (Orcas and Lionels) to compete. In the world of HLB, there are no rules – using your Quirks is, of course, accepted. However, when the game is about to end, they are interrupted by a villain. Who will be the winner of HLB!?

Laugh! As if you are in Hell! will be set during the Endeavor Agency arc, being responsible for the introduction of the new villain, Mr. Smiley, a graffiti artist with a unique quirk that helps him avoid getting caught by the authorities.

Mr. Smiley goes too far when he vandalizes the home of Japan’s highest ranked hero, Endeavor, who tasks his interns Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki, to hunt down the rebel artist.

My Hero Academia was created by Kōhei Horikoshi and rescues the great action stories that made the Shonen Jump world-famous and still pays a great tribute to classic American comic book heroes. With this engaging formula, the work has been conquering fans in all parts of the globe.

According to Horikoshi, completion should take place in the second half of this year.
