After the conclusion of the Paranormal Liberation War Arc, in which Deku departed UA Academy to protect his fellow students and evade the clutches of All For One and Shigaraki, My Hero Academia’s sixth season has taken a dramatic turn. The Hero Society is hanging on by a thread as a slew of baddies has escaped from prison. Deku must contend with a previous big danger that nearly killed him in their first meeting. However, the struggle against Muscular is not going as smoothly as you would have expected.
Watch Muscular face off vs Deku below:
Muscular has escaped from jail as a result of Shigaraki’s release of All For One, and a swath of villains has taken to the streets, eager to bring down a civilization defended by heroes. With it now clear that both professional crime fighters and ambitious students must give their best to safeguard innocent citizens, two Ketsubutsu Academy High School students, Yo Shindo and Tatami Nakagame, find themselves attempting to persuade a group of survivors to seek refuge. Unfortunately, Grand and Turtle Neck are interrupted by Muscular, who now seems significantly more threatening than he did in the anime adaptation’s third season.
Check out the teaser of the new cour here!
Izuku Midoriya has the voices of One For All rattling about in his mind, offering him some much-needed counsel when it comes to his frenzied conflicts, with Deku roaming the streets in a significantly darker attire, supported by All Might. When Midoriya confronts Muscular for their long-awaited rematch, he is able to “one-shot” the villain who almost killed him during their previous one-on-one encounter.
Aside from having a much better handle on his strength, Deku can now merge various other One For All powers, transforming him into a lethal powerhouse. Despite this, Izuku still faces a number of severe challenges in his quest to preserve his companions and prevent civilization from collapsing.
