After a tragic loss in My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 3, the battle between the Paranormal Liberation Front and the Pro Heroes rages on in Episode 4. The latter have their hands full, even though they succeeded to infiltrate enemy headquarters. After his encounter with Twice, Hawks is nearly powerless against Dabi – a villain whose Hero #2’s greatest weakness Quirk is already capitalizing on.
My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 4 also hints that Dabi is more than meets the eye, with the villain sharing his “dream” with Hawks. He wants to prove that hero society is built on a lie, and his goal is tied to his true identity. We don’t know who Dabi is yet, but it’s clear the anime is gearing up for a big reveal.
Back at Jaku General Hospital, Mirko continues his quest to stop Shigaraki from powering up. She manages to outrun Kyudai Garaki’s high-end Nomus and put a crack in the villain’s incubator. And Present Mic arrives in time to completely remove Shigaraki from the doctor’s experiment, while the others fight off his creations.
But even though the pros prevented Shigaraki from inheriting All for One 100%, the villain seems to have bonded with his master’s power. Releasing him early could change the course of this fight. So what can viewers expect when My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 5 arrives?
Predictions for ‘My Hero Academia’ Season 6 Episode 5
So far, My Hero Academia Season 6 has favored the Pro Heroes, granting them multiple wins early in their battle. However, the preview for My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 5 suggests that things are about to change. Deku admits as much in the brief preview for next week’s episode. The promo also shows off Shigaraki and Gigantomachia, suggesting two more villains are about to join the fray.
Now that Shigaraki is free, Gigantomachia – who was previously sleepy and unresponsive – can wake up. It’s hard to imagine what heroes could stop him from wreaking massive destruction. In that sense, Mirko’s attempt to stop All for One’s plans might actually backfire.
There’s also Shigaraki himself to contend with. Although Eraserhead’s Quirk prevents him from using Decay, the Pros already have their hands full with the doctor’s high-end Nomus. Adding another dangerous villain to the roster may be too much for them to handle, even with the arrival of reinforcements like Gran Torino.
My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 5 premieres Saturday, October 29.
