This new storyline has many names. The official title is “Dark Hero” or “Black Hero,” depending on who you ask, but before that, fans started calling it the “Vigilante Deku” arc. Personally, I don’t think any of this really works because Deku isn’t technically a vigilante in the show’s own terms, and “dark hero” suggests some level of antihero angst, and we The Green Lighthouse of Empathy can’t do that. So I think we need a new, more accurate name. Consider Deku’s ragged, almost inhuman attire. Many people catch a glimpse of him and are sure that he exists, but no one can see him clearly, leaving only the story of a mysterious creature with multiple quirks who rushed in to save the day before quickly disappearing. This is the Cryptid Deku arc.

Although before our hero could be vaguely captured Freak plays Detective’s picture online, and we catch up with some unexpected returning characters. Despite Shindo’s inexplicable popularity at one point (he’s in the Top for some reason Seventh popularity poll for the manga) I suspect fans are clamoring for him or other members of Mr. Joke’s class to comeo. However, he ends up being the perfect person to introduce the episode’s opening conflict.

MHA Must be careful to portray more populace, especially those who are most sympathetic to heroes Picky people, so bringing back a character known for being two-faced was a no-brainer. If the persistent vigilante we met this week was just yelling at Iida or Uraraka, we’d be instinctively inclined to side with those familiar and trustworthy characters. But since we know that Shindo’s nice guy routine is mostly a cover, it’s understandable that they wouldn’t be swayed by his words. These are people who have watched their entire society’s system of power — the institutions designed to keep them safe in their daily lives — crumbling in a matter of days. Of course, they’re not in the mood for being belittled by a teenager who insists he knows better than them just because he’s wearing fancy costumes. Like in the driver’s license test, Shindo’s true hero side isn’t revealed until he puts aside the sweet talk and puts himself on the line, convincing a distrusting audience that he’s worth listening to. Now that the professional hero has lost the public’s trust, that’s likely to be the theme of this arc.

Of course, the end is not the battle of the new vines, but It was our protagonist, the little chupacabra, and that fight was a treat for many reasons. It’s a great introduction to what Deku can do now, combining his predecessors’ Quirk arsenal, controlling the battlefield with Sixth’s Smoke Screen while combining Blackwhip and Float to become the Amazing Spider-Deku. Having him fight Muscular, the first villain in season three who nearly killed our hero, was a great way to show how far our boy has come without resorting to any arbitrary power levels . Everything we need to know about Deku’s strength is clear at a glance, because he hits an opponent who has scored 1 point in one shot, , percentage. It immediately tells us that Deku has improved far beyond what he’s ever been, and promises to reach even greater heights as he further develops these new skills.

I also really like his design. Trying to make the green chipmunk look imposing and edgy isn’t going to work — especially with his goofy bunny ears in his costumes. However, the frayed ears on his mask and the small pupils visible underneath make it work really well, straight from superhero comics. Plus, I love the little details built into it, like how Deku’s eyes are similar to All Might’s—tiny but fierce, glowing from the haggard darkness that surrounds them. The Cape of the Gran Torino is a nice decoration, but also a constant reminder of the legacy and burden that Deku carries with him wherever he goes. The new arm gloves help pull the look together and I’m about to % sure they are for Melissa in The Two The side referenced hero There are even some callbacks to the anime original, putting this new pseudo-solo Deku in the place All Might once occupied.

Of course, this is Depression times for MHA so this is for us It’s just a cool fight and a new look for the main character. What makes his suit so tattered and reinforced is the fact that he’s constantly jumping from one fight to the next, desperate to keep others from being drawn into any potential attacks on him. Deku has always been the type to put others before himself, and now it’s his responsibility to do so, leaving his friends and family (how dare you make your mom cry again, Deku? How dare I?) fall behind. Sure, he has All Might, but that might just add fuel to the fire, considering All Might is probably the living person in this story who has made more self-sacrifice than Deku. The dramatic tension was tempered just enough for what should have been a straightforward episode showing off our hero’s new powers, and when you combine that with great action and delivery, this new arc gets off to a great start.
