Smashing into Academia (はりさけろ (にゅう) (がく) Harisakero Nyūgaku?) is the fifth chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


Izuku meets All Might at the cleaned up Takoba Municipal Beach Park, where All Might congratulates Izuku for being accepted into U.A. High School personally. All Might then tells Izuku that he will have to keep adjusting to the One For All Quirk if he wants to use it properly and then leaves.

It is springtime and the first day of U.A.'s academic year. Izuku prepares to leave and is wished good luck by his mother. At U.A., Izuku walks to his class which is Class 1-A, hoping that Katsuki and the person wearing glasses aren't in his class, but his hopes are dashed when they are revealed to be in his class. The student wearing glasses introduces himself to Izuku, saying that his name is Tenya and commends Izuku for understanding the true nature of the practical test, admitting he is the better man. Then, the girl that Izuku saved enters the class, glad that Izuku made it into U.A.. Soon, a man enters the class and introduces himself as Shota Aizawa, saying that he will be their homeroom teacher for Class 1-A. He then tells his students to put on their P.E. clothes and head off to the P.E. ground.

Shota explains that they will be having a Quirk Apprehension Test that will test the strength and limits of their Quirks since they were not able to use their Quirks in middle school. After Katsuki uses his Quirk for a trial pitch, the students find it to be fun. However, Shota doesn't seem pleased by their reactions and then makes a new rule: the student who ranks last in total points will be deemed hopeless and immediately expelled, which shocks Izuku.
