With the kids about to unleash all of their powers, Todoroki, Bakugo, Inasa, and Camie will have to do something special if they are to win their hearts because beating them in a fight will probably give the wrong message.
The kids’ attacks were pretty ineffective, but even more so because Todoroki froze them into an elaborate construct resembling a slide. Camie used her quirk to turn the surroundings into a wondrous mystical setting. Then, Inasa lifted the kids to the top of the slide and dropped them onto it one at a time. Even Bakugo was able to offer some sound advice to the leader of the kids which seem to put him at ease too. They did it and were awarded their provisional hero licenses. Endeavor met with Todoroki after the event to tell him how proud he was of him and how he was going to try to be a hero that his son could be proud of. Todoroki wasn’t the least bit interested, but Inasa bizarrely stepped up and offered Endeavor his support.
Meanwhile, Midoriya keeps finding himself in some unusual situations with Aoyama and it involves cheese far too much. Aoyama claims to understand something about Midoriya but remains coy. Finally, Midoriya gets Aoyama alone and asks him about it. Turns out, he has realised that Midoriya’s body isn’t compatible with his quirk much like his own.
What was your favourite element?
I never thought I’d say this but I felt kind of sorry for Endeavor. Everything he did to Todoroki and his mother can’t be forgotten, but he genuinely seems to be determined to do good. Even just taking the time to sit with All Might and ask him questions shows that he’s consciously trying to change. It’s going to take some time for Todoroki to warm to him if he ever does and that’s completely understandable. It was interesting to see Inasa step up and show that he’d seen a change in Endeavor, especially as it was his hatred of Endeavor that drove him to become who he was today. I do like it when you see more than the one side of a character.
What have you learnt?
Aoyama is weird! That bombshell aside, I think I’m going to focus on Endeavor again. We’ve seen a different side of him lately and it makes for some interesting viewing. For so long, he sat behind All Might as the number two hero and it obviously got to him. Every time we’ve seen him prior to now, he’s come off as almost looking like a villain. It wasn’t just how he looked either, his actions and the way he spoke pretty much confirmed it. So, seeing him having this change of heart as he realises that maybe he was never good enough to be the number one hero like All Might is interesting. He could have gone either way and I think from our earlier experiences this seems like the less likely one.
