My hero academia 5 finally begins its royal career: after the good first episode of My Hero Academia 5, a pleasant if slightly banal filler, the story now connects to the script of the manga, summarizing the final episode of season 4. The episode is available again on Crunchyroll., who is therefore a candidate as the main (and so far only) announcer of the long-awaited anime Studio BONES. Let’s find out together if it’s worth seeing.
Top two heroes
Today’s is a transitional episode, but full of content. Transitory because the current narrative arc has not yet “exploded”, taking us to the heart of the new exercise to be performed for Deku and his friends. My Hero Academia 5 × 02, however, is satisfying because it doesn’t just summarize the characters from Effort and hawks, undisputed stars of the MHA 4 season finale, but provides some valuable clues about Izuku and the One for All.
It begins with a flashback: Endavor, in his hospital bed, remembers meeting Dabi immediately after defeating the Nomu. A confrontation that, for now, boils down to a verbal exchange before the villain disappears, leaving Todoroki with a great conscience: a war with the Union of Supervillains is definitely upon us.
Then there is the big reveal about hawks, who turns out to be a secret ally of Dabi himself. The episode, shortly after, however, informs us of the truth: Hawks acts on behalf of the Japanese authorities and is in the course of a very delicate covert mission: betray the villain, posing as a traitorous hero to join their ranks.
Unfortunately for him, however, it will take some time to earn Dabi’s trust and thus get to know the leader of the supervillains up close: the fearsome Shigaraki Tomura. The first half of episode 2 is also completed. Endeavor’s Redemption Speech, determined to become a good father and a great number one hero. However, if a battle to the death was enough to win the favor of a part of the public, with his children it is a completely different story: Enji, however, seems to have changed profoundly, convinced that he wants to remedy all his past. mistakes. And, a bit like the history of the Hawks, it will only be time to tell him if he really deserves a second chance.
We return to the Yuei, more precisely from the parts of Midoriya. Exhausted from training, the protagonist falls asleep and falls into a strange dream. It is in the presence of those who, as you will later understand, are the seven previous bearers of the One for All, but the most sensational element only comes later.
Help to a scene from the past involving none other than All for One, when he was still in human form, with his younger brother. The deep ideological differences between the two led the Villain to imprison his little brother as he began his evil operation around the world.
Below we see All for One’s brother connecting directly with Deku, speaking to him about the potential his One for All could achieve. But it’s at best that Izuku’s dream is interrupted, leaving him shaking, sweaty, and scared in his bed, with more questions than answers, before the closing topic reminds us that the episode has come to an end.
The second episode of My Hero Academia 5 leaves us like this, with 20 minutes focused mainly on dialogue and revelations. (some also quite sensational) that dictate the tones of the upcoming anime developments: the story will get more and more dramatic, the atmospheres will be darker, and Deku’s path on the way to becoming the greatest hero of all time. it will take on deeply mature nuances. But, for the third time, we repeat: only time will tell us what the future holds for the heroes of My Hero Academia.
