Here’s the preview on YouTube.
Given the preview, it’s highly likely Season 5 will adapt the Joint Training Battle arc from the manga that pits Class 1-A against Class 1-B.
In the manga Shinso returns for the Joint Training Battle arc and plays for both Class 1-A and Class 1-B.
For Class 1-A he joins the team of Asui, Kirishima, Kaminari, and Koji Koda. As part of the Class 1-B team he faces off against Deku, Uraraka, Ashido, and Mineta.
