This is the season Deku (midoriya) breaks all his bones because of his quirk and we meet the villains again. After the sports festival class 1-a goes to a training camp but then there was an attack planned by villains we meet the Wild Wild Pussycats and a little boy named kota izumi whose parents were heros and sadly passed when he was a little boy. Later on the villains storm the and kota runs off and finds the villain who killed his parents and deku finds kota trying to run away from the villain muscular. Deku starts to fight muscular and has to use one for all 100% and breaks all his bones episode 2 On the day of the forest lodge trip, Class 1-A and 1-B prepare to board buses.

An hour later, Class 1-A’s bus stops for a restroom break. Suddenly, two women wearing cat-like costumes and a small boy appear. The women introduce themselves as the professional Hero Team, The Pussycats, while the boy is revealed to be Kota, an orphan in their care who despises heroes. Mandalay tells class 1-A that they must reach the training camp at the base of the mountain by midday or they will miss lunch. Despite their best efforts, class 1-A’s progress is inhibited by earthen beasts throughout the forest, controlled by Pixie-Bob with her Quirk, and the students miss their deadline by hours. Episode 3: Class 1-A and 1-B continues training as the villains prepare to attack.

The villains attack when the students are participating in a training exercise and catch them unaware.

Meanwhile, Tetsutetsu and Kendo find the source of a poisonous gas that is filling part of the forest: a villain named Mustard. The two work together to defeat Mustard and this results in the gas dissipating. Midoriya runs into Shoji while searching for Bakugou and learns that Tokoyami Quirk, Dark Shadow, is out of control.

Season 4

My hero academia season 4 is the most amazing season i’ve seen yet season 4 has heros has deku achieving his dream, villains working together, heros saving a little girl named Eri. Eri is a small girl with bluish, off-white hair, messy and unkempt, which is parted in the middle of her forehead, almost reaching down to her waist. She has very wide, innocent-looking eyes, which are bright red in color. Poking out from the right side of her forehead is a small, brown horn, which grows larger when her Quirk is activated. In her first appearance, she’s wearing a plain, short-sleeved dress, which is a dirty, pale tan color. Bandages are wrapped around both her arms and legs, stopping at her wrists and ankles, underneath which she is shown to have numerous scars.

After she’s taken in by U.A., Eri’s outfit is changed to a white dress shirt with a frilled collar and a plain red pinafore with two large, golden buttons on either side of her chest. Under this, she wears gray tights and a large set of tan boots, and a small dark red messenger bag with the trap sitting over her right shoulder, a little floral pattern decorating one of its sides. Her hair also looks to be better cared for, appearing straighter and neater than it was during her time with the Shie Hassaikai. Because her mother disowned her after she accidentally made her father disappear with her Quirk and the experiments she was subjected to by Kai Chisaki, Eri became a fearful and secluded girl, without anyone showing affection to her in her life.

Apparently, Izuku Midoriya’s touch was the first time she ever felt kindness, which overwhelmed her. When murderous intentions are directed at her, she does not scream, nor cry and simply remains silent, because she knows she has no choice but to accept whatever is to happen to her. Eri is, however, willing to let herself go with Kai in order to protect those that help her. She feels guilt over other people being hurt in order to rescue her. Unfortunately, after her rescue, Eri still psychologically suffers from Kai’s influence, as she is unable to smile and has no experience of happiness. However, this changes thanks to the events of the U.A. School Festival, and Eri finally smiles and laughs for the first time.

Eri’s Quirk allows her to reverse a living individual’s body back to a previous state, allowing her to heal injuries and undo bodily modifications. She has even shown the ability to rewind someone’s body to a point before they existed. As a result of her Quirk mutating her body, Eri’s blood is able to attack an individual’s Quirk and stop its activation. The source of her Quirk’s power is located in the horn on her head, and the size of the horn dictates the strength of her power. It is also an accumulation-type Quirk, which means the power it emits has to build up over a period of time before becoming usable. And in the The fourth season will more than likely cover the next three volumes of the manga, comprised of the Overhaul, Fighting Fate, and Red Riot arcs.

These see an alliance between the Eight Precepts, a conglomeration of Yakuza members, and the League of Villains, as they strike against the heroes with a superpowered young captive. The passing students will also shadow Pro Heroes, with Izuku working with another of All Might’s former allies, Sir Nighteye. The action-packed trailer gives viewers a first glimpse at some of what’s to come, but given the show’s propensity for introducing anime exclusive stories, fans will have to wait a few weeks to fully experience what’s in store for the heroes. Season 4 of my hero academia is still going on and they have 2 movies and 2 games. First I will start with the movies.

Movie 1: Two Heroes


All Might is invited to a summer trip at ‘I-Island’, a man-made island where the scientists of the world reside and perform research on Quirks, superpowers that 80% of the world’s population has. He takes Izuku Midoriya as his guest and reminds him not to reveal to his good friend, former partner, and top scientist Professor David Shield the secret about their shared Quirk: One for All. After they arrive, they are greeted by Melissa Shield, David’s daughter and a student of the island’s academy hoping to be a scientist just like her father. After a reunion with David, All Might transforms back into his depowered form. By running tests, David realizes that All Might’s Quirk is nearly depleted.

Meanwhile, Melissa shows Midoriya around the island, and they run into Momo Yaoyorozu, who had been invited to the island and has brought Ochako Uraraka and Kyoka Jirō as her guests. The students later run into Tenya Iida, Shōto Todoroki, Katsuki Bakugō, and Eijiro Kirishima, with the former three having been invited too and Kirishima being brought by Bakugō. Minoru Mineta and Denki Kaminari are also revealed to be on the island working as waiters. After spending the day enjoying the island’s various events, Melissa invites the waiters to join them at a formal party that everyone else was invited to. Before the party, Melissa reveals to Midoriya that she is born Quirkless like he once was.

She also realizes his Quirk is similar to All Might’s, and gives him a gauntlet she had designed that allows him to not get hurt when using his powers at 100%. Meanwhile, Wolfram, a mysterious villain who secretly arrived on the island prior, takes control of the island’s security system during the party and threatens to kill its residents. He also restrains all of the pro-heroes attending, including All Might, and takes David and his assistant Sam hostage in order to break into the island’s vault. As they were running late, Midoriya, Melissa, Iida, Todoroki, Yaoyorozu, Uraraka, Jirō, Mineta, and Kaminari are not restrained alongside the pro-heroes at the party.

To take back control of the security system, they decide to access it by reaching the 200th floor of the building the party is hosted at. At the same time, Bakugō and Kirishima become lost on their way to the party and begin wandering the building without realizing the security breach. After the students reach the 80th floor, Wolfram and his team become aware of their plan and attempt to apprehend them. While hiding in a plant room, the group attempts to escape from two of the villains until Bakugō and Kirishima accidentally cross paths with them and engage in battle. Todoroki helps the others escape to a higher floor and joins Bakugō and Kirishima in their fight. Mineta uses his Quirk to climb up the tower and lower a ladder to allow the others to climb up with him. Wolfram’s men send an army of sentry robots after both groups of students, which incapacitate Kaminari.

Iida, Yaoyorozu, Jirō, and Mineta defend against the robots while Midoriya, Uraraka, and Melissa make their way to the top of the tower. Attempting to reach the very top, Uraraka uses her Quirk to float Midoriya and Melissa closer to the security room. Just as Uraraka is about to be attacked by more robots, Bakugō, Todoroki, and Kirishima arrive to save her. The four of them fight the robots as Midoriya and Melissa fight their way to the very top. At the top of the tower, they discover David and Sam in the vault as they unlock a suitcase. It is revealed that David and Sam orchestrated the night’s events with actors in order to steal back their greatest invention – a headset that maximizes the power of a person’s Quirk.

I-Island’s top men decided that it was too dangerous, took their invention and research away, and locked it up so it wouldn’t end up in the wrong hands. Deciding that All Might needed it to remain a hero and keep the world safe, David decided to get his invention back. Wolfram arrives, restrains Midoriya, and reveals that he is a true villain and not an actor. Sam then betrays David and gives Wolfram the suitcase, revealing that he worked with Wolfram to make sure he could sell the invention to other villains and achieve fame. However, Wolfram shoots Sam after getting the suitcase, and David jumps in the way of another bullet in order to save his life. Before Wolfram can kill Melissa, Midoriya breaks free in order to fight him.

Wolfram uses his Quirk to hold off Midoriya and escapes to the rooftop, having kidnapped David so he can make more copies of said invention. Midoriya races to the top and attempts to stop Wolfram from taking off in a helicopter with David, but fails and falls from the helicopter. Melissa also takes back control of the security system, freeing the pro heroes and disabling the robots. All Might, now freed, races to the roof and stops the helicopter from taking off. Wolfram, in a last attempt, uses the invention to amplify his power and starts to overcome an already tired All Might, creating a giant body made up of metal parts and debris that traps David inside it. He overpowers All Might further with multiple Quirks and reveals that he is in league with All For One, who gave Wolfram additional Quirks and helped fuel David’s fall from grace in an attempt to demoralize All Might.

The rest of the students soon arrive on the roof to help All Might and Midoriya who work together to finish the fight. The two throw a smash together that is ultimately strong enough to defeat Wolfram and free David. As the sun rises, David and All Might reflect on how Melissa and Midoriya are the next generation of heroes and how the world will be in good hands even after All Might’s Quirk is gone. During the credits, scenes are shown of the students and All Might enjoying a barbecue on the island after their victory with the rest of the students from their class Class 1-A, who were also on I-Island when the events of the film happened. Melissa also visits David, who is now in the hospital recovering while the police watch over him.

Movie 2: Heroes Rising


On a lone highway, the League of Villains is escaping pursuit in an armored truck while transporting a man in a life support. The truck is eventually destroyed by the No. 1 hero Endeavor, but the League members escape while the man, Nine, regroups with his team of super-powered followers. Meanwhile, U.A. High’s Class 1-A has been sent to the remote Nabu Island as part of a safety exercise, which amounts to minor deeds for the islanders as the island is virtually crime-free. One resident, Mahoro Shimano, requests help when her little brother, Katsuma, is missing; provisional heroes Izuku ‘Deku’ Midoriya, Ochaco Uraraka, and Kyōka Jirō conduct the search.

However, it turns out Mahoro was with Katsuma the entire time, as the girl berates Deku for taking too long to find Karsuma while using the event as an example to show her brother that heroes aren’t as useful as they’re claimed to be. Back on the mainland, Mahoro and Katsuma’s father is attacked by Nine and his party. It is revealed that Nine has the ability to steal and possess a maximum of 9 quirks, an ability granted to him by the doctor in service to the villain All-For-One. He then tries to use the stolen Quirk to cure an illness in his body brought about by overuse of his artificial Quirk, but realizes it is incompatible with his blood type. Frustrated, Nine learns about the children and, surmising their genetics would have produced a more useful variant, sets his sights on Nabu Island.

Later on, as Deku trains with his powers, his classmate, childhood friend/rival, Katsuki ‘Kacchan’ Bakugou, confronts him about Deku’s quirk, One-For-All, an ability of immense strength passed onto him by the legendary hero All Might; they both agree to continue chasing their shared dream of being the greatest hero in the world. The conversation is interrupted by Katsuma, who claims a villain is on the island. Bakugo quickly moves to the island’s remote peninsula, with Deku chasing behind. He discerns that the ‘villain’ is just a harmless illusion brought on by Mahoro’s Quirk, who was trying to show her brother how ineffective heroes could be. Bakugo proudly declares his intent to be the top hero before storming off.

By next morning, Midoriya finds Katsuma outside the class’ hero agency, who apologizes for their actions the night before. The hero realizes that Mahoro is merely trying to discourage her brother from becoming a hero himself due to how dangerous the line of work can be. Katsuma notes how ineffective his Quirk is in combat, but still wants to be a hero that can save people; Deku encourages him with the same words spoken to him by his mentor, All Might.

Nine and his gang crash a ferry onto the island and proceed to destroy all the ships and communication towers as Nine begins his search for the children. Class 1-A learn of the invasion and split up to stop the villains and escort the islanders to safety. Bakugou and his group of classmates are able to incapacitate Mummy, a man whose bandages allows him to ensnare and control anything that gets caught in them.
