All Might decides to let Izuku succeed him and gives him his “One For All” Quirk. But, people who were against the “One For All’ Quirk keep trying to demolish the heroes and their society. These villains are known as “All For One.” The story unravels as we witness the types of adventures Izuku and his friends go on and experience while trying to protect themselves and their society by fighting all kinds of evil.
My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 2 Review and Explanation
The second episode of the fifth season of ‘My Hero Academia’ was aired on the 3rd of April, 2021. It starts with a bang as it is confirmed that Hawks is trying to destroy the League of Villains. This episode also clarifies that Endeavour is finally starting to learn how badly he has broken his family and wishes to mend the bond he shares with them. Coming to the conversation between Dabi and Endeavor, Dabi is unable to remember who Snatch is.
Nonetheless, he later recalls how Snatch was extremely generous and empathetic towards attacked and injured people. Snatch made it his ultimate goal to help anybody who is in trouble or is hurt. When Snatch finally meets Dabi, he accuses him of being a crazy murderer and tries to convince him to stop killing and think about others. None of this affects Dabi as he states how much pleasure and happiness he extracts when he kills people.
Surprisingly, the last scene of the second episode depicts how Izuku’s hand is starting to glow. He, somehow, finally manages to figure out how the One For All Quirk is transferred from one person or user to the other. Next, it is revealed through Izuku’s dream that through the intake of the previous One For All user’s DNA, the Quirk is transferred. It is also understood that one of the abilities of this particular Quirk is that Izuku can communicate with all the previous users of the Quirk. Furthermore, his hand starts to glow as a sign that the Quirk has been activated, and his powers have been immensely increased.
