According to reports, Wataru Hatano will take part in the panel. The actor began his work as Shinso back in the anime's second season, and he will return in the fifth. He will be joined by several major co-stars like Daiki Yamashita who plays Deku. Nobuhiko Okamoto, Yuki Kaji, and Kohei Amasaki will also show up as they play Bakugo, Shoto, and Monoma respectively.
As you can guess, this panel will be dedicated to all things My Hero Academia season five. The show is slated to debut this April, and fans are expecting a lot from the debut. Season five will go live with a major arc focusing on Class 1-A as they prepare to do a joint training mission with Class 1-B. Hitsohi will be taking part in the event, so it seems like the general student will be making a bid for the hero course shortly. And if he has anything to say about it, then Shinso will be joining the ranks soon.
