My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 marks the end of the most tumultuous and inconsistent season of the show so far. While not bad by any accounts, much has to be said about the show’s handling of some parts. Let’s look at how this episode fared in this review!
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 Overview
If you haven’t at least heard of My Hero Academia, I hope that the rock that you’re living under provides plenty of space and sunlight for a healthy living. My Hero Academia, or Boku No Hero Academia if you want to be all proper about it, is one of the most popular anime going on right now. If you were to believe Livechart, it is among this season’s most popular anime. All that is for a good reason, the show is fantastic.
My Hero Academia is based on the manga series of the same name by Kouhei Horikoshi, and the anime is produced by Studio Bones, a studio that is counted among the absolute top tier of all anime studios. Studio Bones is also known for working on anime like Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood and Mob Psycho, so you know that My Hero Academia is in outstanding company. Season 5 is directed by Kenji Nagasaki and Masahiro Mukai. If you want to catch up on our My Hero Academia reviews, you can read our review of Season 5 Episode 24 here.

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 Review- Plot and Characters
Finally, the My Hero Academia we all know and love is back to say hello a final time before the season ends. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the My Villain Academia arc as much as the next guy, and it absolutely saved Season 5 (to a degree), but that kind of storytelling isn’t why I started watching the show in the first place. Despite being a great arc, My Villain Academia was a definite departure from the show’s normal tone to a darker, more evil atmosphere.
I have always enjoyed My Hero Academia for its fantastic cast of young heroes thrust into a world that they barely understand yet have to learn how to protect. When they felt joyous or gloomy, we felt those emotions alongside them. We saw them grow and have adventures in front of our eyes, and we saw them evolve. You just can’t have this kind of connection with the villains since you are supposed to hate them, or at least their actions.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 gave us a lot of the things I mentioned above. We saw how much Class 1-A has grown through their work studies and how the bonds they share with each other and their teachers are still as strong as ever. It is always fantastic to watch whenever they interact with each other, something that has enhanced every arc in which Class 1-A has been involved together.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 also set up the next season of the show perfectly, with all the players of the next arc featured in some form or other. The students are gearing up, the villains have already taken their stances, and Hawks and Eri look set to play a huge part in whatever happens next season. Season 6 has already been announced, so it’s not a long time before we get to witness everything firsthand.
Deku has also been doing well in mastering his powers, all 10,234 of them. I kid, but his next objective is already in front of him. His journey is unique, and Horikoshi has already left himself quite the Chekhov’s Gun in the two users of One For All that we don’t know anything about. Deku’s interactions with Bakugo, Uraraka, and All Might were tremendous in My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25, and when it’s on, My Hero Academia is the funniest anime around.
Overall, I loved how Season 5 of My Hero Academia ended, and the ending has done a lot to wash away the bad taste that some of the previous episodes in Season 5 left in my mouth. You will have to wait a while to read my thoughts on the complete season, so check back later in the week to read the full review! Season 6 is sure to be an exciting one.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 Review- Art and Music
There isn’t much to say here, as everything was the usual standard My Hero Academia quality. The only thing that can be said is I hope that the next season does better animation-wise and pays the sound director Yuki Hayashi a bajillion dollars to stick around because his music is absolutely astounding to listen to, and he killed it in Season 5.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 25 was a fantastic end to a troubled season. All the pieces are set, and the stakes are high. Season 6 is sure to be a bloodbath, and we are here for it. Let’s hope that Bones decides not to do another movie in the middle of a season this time.
