First broadcast in April last year, the series was a smash-hit and even went on to win multiple accolades in our Readers’ Choice Awards 2018, including Best TV Anime and Best Single Episode!
Funimation Entertainment, who are releasing the series in North America, describe the series as follows:

A group of seasoned pros pushes everyone’s Quirks to new heights as the students face one overwhelming challenge after another. Braving the elements in this secret location becomes the least of their worries when routine training turns into a critical struggle for survival.
