This moment in My Hero Academia Season 5 went too far

The franchise My Hero Academia knows how to get his fans talking. More recently, the internet chatter has revolved around the latest anime movie, “My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission” which is one of the 11 movies from anime They have grossed more than $ 10 million at the North American box office.

The anime focuses on the student Izuku Midoriya (Deku), while training to become a professional hero in a world where a large percentage of the population is born with a “quirk” or superpower.

While the series is usually lighthearted, the recently released season 5 takes a slightly different turn. Warning! The following in The Truth News contains spoilers for anime My Hero Academia now available on Crunchyroll.

What moment marked My Hero Academia Season 5?

Season 5 was quite unique in that it provided a Full arc dedicated to the League of Villains and this was the moment that marked the fifth season of Boku at Hero Academy.

In the arc of about five episodes, the leader of the League of Villains (Shigaraki Tomura) is captured by the new group of villains, the Meta Liberation Army, whose goal is to allow the free use of quirks.

Throughout the arc, the backstory of key League members is explained, but the origin of one character, in particular, takes the darkness to an entirely different level – it’s about the trágico origen de Tomura Shigaraki.

  • Shigaraki’s backstory is particularly gruesome:

The leader of the League of Villains and All For One’s successor Tomura Shigaraki is hideous enough just by looking at him, with those creepy dead hands joined all over his body and deep red eyes. But it turns out that he has a very good reason behind his evil ways.

In Season 5, Episode 23, we finally get to see how Shigaraki became the villain he is today. At 5 years old, Shigaraki, who at the time was called Tenko Shimura, is a seemingly no-quirk boy with an abusive father who loathes heroes.

Shimura’s father catches him with a photo of his professional hero grandmother and unleashes a torrent of abuse on him. In desperation, Shimura’s quirk, Decay, is unleashed on the family pet, which literally turns into a pile of decaying blood.

Shimura then turns to his family and accidentally uses his quirk on his mother, grandparents, and little sister, killing them all. Then, out of hatred, he deliberately unleashes his quirk on his father, killing him as well. After the deaths of his entire family, Shimura wanders the street aimlessly until he encounters All For One.

  • Fans agree that the moment was pretty intense:

This particular episode is one that sticks with you for quite some time. Shigaraki’s backstory is terribly depressing and the episode itself is unlike any other in “My Hero Academia” as it is actually scary to watch, and many fans would agree.

In a thread of Reddit, the user u / Turambar1986 wrote: “I’m really surprised that it could have been broadcast that way. It certainly wouldn’t have aired on American TV. Not just the blood, but the horror elements, in general, were scored up to ten. It reminded me of Tokyo Ghoul ”.

Another user, u / Sunsurg_e, agreed and wrote: “It was so powerful, but so heartbreaking … It was so well done. So … so well done. I could understand exactly why it ended the way it did, and exactly how it felt. in those final moments with his family … “.

Fans of “My Hero Academia” turn to anime for its joy and hilarious action scenes, so this specific episode was quite shocking when it aired.

With a backstory like Shigaraki’s, it’s no wonder he became the leader of the League of Villains and his story proves that the series can have a very dark side to it in addition to its comedy.

In contrast, the manga from My Hero Academy created by Kohei Horikoshi featured one of its darkest bows yet. Fans can expect the sixth or future seasons of the anime to adapt the War Bow, where we will only tell you that you should be prepared for some goodbyes.
