My Hero Academia’s sixth season has seen the deaths of many heroes while also striking a major blow to the villains by seeing Twice die at the hands of the number two hero, Hawks. While the main event of the latest episode if the battle taking place involving Deku and Shigaraki as the struggle between All For One and One For All continues, a smaller, but perhaps more brutal, battle is brewing that sees Toga at Uravity’s throat.
With the war between Izuku and Shigaraki hitting wild new levels thanks in part to Bakugo’s injury and the villain managing to get his hands on the star of the series, Uravity is working with other students in Class 1-A in an effort to protect the civilians who might get caught up in this war for the future of Hero Society. With the evacuation still underway, Ochaco is pulled away from her friends by an elderly woman who is in desperate need of some assistance, but unfortunately for the gravity-manipulating hero, the civilian in distress isn’t exactly who she says she is.
Toga revealed herself to be the old woman in disguise, ditching her allies riding atop Gigantomachia in an effort to come face-to-face with Ochaco to learn more about what it means to be a hero. The young villain is an interesting case study, in that she is squarely a villain but seems to have a naive outlook on the world, not quite understanding why the heroes do what they do. Uravity isn’t exactly thrilled to see the villain who has a crush on Deku, especially considering that the League of Villains member killed the old woman in order to steal her appearance.
Toga remains a fan-favorite thanks to her strange personality and unnerving Quirk, but with the upgrade she received in season five, she’s also one of the most dangerous threats to the UA Academy students and Ochaco might have taken on too much to handle in fighting her solo, though we won’t know until the next episode how the fight will conclude.
Who do you think will win the intimate clash between these two sides of the same coin when it comes to affection for Deku? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of UA Academy.
