Renpa gets up. At first, Fat Gum thinks he wants to continue the fight but he doesn’t want to. Impressed by Red Riot, he has decided to help them. The young hero’s heroic deed has not only earned the respect of his ally, but also that of his opponent ! While all four of them are in the infirmary, Fat Gum asks Renpa why he is working for this yakuza clan and what is the goal of their leader. The bad guy answered him that, by staying, he hopes to kill the only man who has defeated him: Overhaul. As for their leader plan, it seems that he wants to restore the yakuza’s honor by distributing a certain « drug ».
Meanwhile, Joi Irinaka tries to slow down the rest of the group in the corridors, but he can’t make it and the drug’s effect in him will soon end. Lucky for him, Twice and Himiko Toga came to help. But even with them, and after separating the heroes, the result remains the same. The thing is that the two new yakuzas are not really honest. They still hold a grudge against Overhaul because he killed their friend. So, to get revenge, they decided to help the heros without them knowing it.
An interesting episode where the main characters were not our usual heroes, but two members of the League of Villains: Twice and Himiko Toga. The fact that they have to work for the person who killed their friend, made them more human. As a spectator, you feel empathy for them. The only question remaining now is how they intend to help Deku and his friends.
Maybe we’ll find it out next week.
