The Scoop on U.A. Class 1-A (スクープ雄英1年A組 Sukūpu Yūei Ichi-Nen Ei-Gumi?) the sixty-fourth episode of the My Hero Academia anime and the first episode of the fourth season. This episode is almost completely comprised of anime-original content.
A newspaper office, Juko News is trying to tell a story about All Might's retirement but the editor-in-chief wants a scoop since they are the last to write about the subject with regard to competition. The Freelance Journalist, Taneo Tokuda, arrives to help turn it into a good story. Analyzing the message of All Might after his fight against One For All, he thinks that it is not a warning to other villains, as everyone believes. He's believes that All Might's message is probably towards a student of the U.A. which he has chosen as his successor.
The editor-in-chief ask that he already have an idea of who that is. Taneo replies that at first he thought it could be Mirio Togata of The Big 3. However, due to All Might and Sir Nighteye's partnership ending, Taneo believes his successor is actually someone in Class 1-A. The editor-in-chief assures Taneo that she will obtain him the permission to interview class 1-A, but in return he will only provide the scoop to her paper.
Taneo arrives in Heights Alliance to interview Class 1-A for the newspaper. Shota Aizawa explains to his students that Nezu granted permission for the interview thinking it would be good for his parents and guardians to see them all living happily in the dorms. Taneo introduces himself and tells them that he will basically take some photos of his daily life at school and ask some questions about them. He also reminds Shota that the principal gave him orders not to interfere with his reporting. Shota notices he might be up to something but allows him to continue anyway. He records Class 1-A's daily lives and reviews their Quirks. After he's finished, he narrows down the possible candidates for All Might's successor to just Izuku Midoriya.
In the afternoon, while it was raining, All Might goes to the bedrooms of class 1-A, bringing some snacks to share. He meets Izuku outside who is training on his own. Izuku asks how he is doing. All Might tells him that he was in hospital for a regular check up, and when he returned to the U.A. He decided to buy something to eat in a store. The storekeeper was so happy for his presence that he allowed him to take all the meat buns he wants and even gave him his umbrella to shelter from the rain. Then, they talk about his upcoming role to surpass the Symbol of Peace. All Might leaves promising that he will start training him tomorrow
Taneo notices and has a conversation with Izuku about how All Might saved his father and how it inspired him to take pictures and write stories about heroes. Even Taneo worries about the rising evil in the absence of the Symbol of Peace. His Quirk allows him to take pictures from a camera lens that spawns anywhere on his body. Taneo shares with Izuku on how he discovered Izuku was All Might's successor and even reveals that he talked to Kota Izumi. He doesn't feel a need to write a story on this and only came to confirm that there is still hope despite All Might's retirement.
Taneo returns to Juko TV and pretends that he hasn't discovered All Might's successor. Meanwhile, Izuku and Ochaco Uraraka enjoy the food from earlier and All Might chats with Shota.
