Based on the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kouhei Horikoshi, ‘My Hero Academia’ or ‘Boku no Hero Academia’ is a superhero action anime. It follows Izuku Midoriya, an ordinary boy born in an extraordinary world. He dreams of becoming a hero like his idol, All Might, but he wasn’t born with any ability or Quirk. Here is all you need to know about the upcoming My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 21.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 20 Recap:
The episode begins in the present time, with Ujiko conducting brutal experiments on Tomura to bring out the full potential. The narrative then shifts back to 2 months earlier. Following All For One’s arrest, the League is in worse condition than it ever was. Kurogiri, who hasn’t been arrested at the time, tells Tomura about a special power that All For One left for them.
After finding Gigantomachia, they realize that he is the power that Kurogiri was referring to. Seeing Tomura, Gigantomachia doesn’t hide his disappointment and declares his master’s successor as weak. Gigantomachia then proceeds to trounce the entire League.
Ujiko stops Gigantomachia on his tracks by broadcasting the recorded voice of One For All. Right before transporting the League to his secret facility by using strange black liquid.
If Gigantomachia was All For One’s muscle and bodyguard, then Ujiko was his scientist. Both of them were unquestioningly loyal toward All For One. However, like Gigantomachia, Ujiko seems to harbor doubts about Tomura. He even claims that the younger man is unworthy. The only reason he brought Tomura and the rest of the League to his facility is that he has too much respect for All For One.
