As Tomura Shigaraki uncovers the last of his buried memories, his power ascends to new, terrifying levels.
The life of a superhero can be a hard one. Superheroes can save a lot of lives and become respected and renowned the world over, but it can also destroy their chance at happiness.

Even decisions with good intentions can lead to tragic consequences. Now, we get to witness first-hand the tragic origins of Tenko Shimura, the future Shigaraki.
azy. It’s actually Twice. I don’t know why, but I love Twice. His backstory and all the problems that he faces are just so sad that you can’t help but want to hug the guy. He’s not evil; he’s just been forced into villainy due to the world being out to get him. And that’s what makes this episode one of my favorite of the season. This week, we got to see Twice unleash his full power.
I have been waiting all season for My Hero Academia to get to this point in the anime: the Meta Liberation Arc, AKA My Villain Academia.

The heroes take a backseat as the villains take to the stage with the start to the highly anticipated my villain academia arc.
