Re-Destro is a member of the Meta Liberation Army, which also features Skeptic (voiced by Ben Diskin)
The first part of My Hero Academia season 5 made its debut in Japan back in March. It adapts the Joint Training arc of the manga in which class 1A and class 1B go against each other. The anime is streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation in Japanese with English subtitles; the latter also has the English dub available. The fifth season also began airing on Toonami in May.
My Hero Academia began as a manga series written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi. It was first serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2014. The anime television adaptation, which is produced by Bones, made its debut in 2016. Both are still ongoing.
The anime series has been adapted in several types of media, including video games and film. In fact, the third My Hero Academia film, titled World Heroes’ Mission, will debut in theaters in Japan on August 6, 2021. A North America release has yet to be announced.
