Lemillion, a true Hero!
Hoping to put his plan into action, Chisaki made five bullets containing the drug which can destroy Quirks. In the meantime, Joi Irinaka finally loses his mind because of Twice and Toga. By doing that, he made his capture easy for the heroes. As for Mirio, he caught up with Chisaki and Eri. But Overhaul flees the fight by letting two « Disposable » trying to hold him back, which they fail to do. And Lemillion doesn’t stop there as in a split second he manages to take Eri from them.
Now Togata finds himself having to protect her against two opponents. Chisaki thinks this is going to be his weak point. What he didn’t expected was that, overwhelm by remorse, Mirio was determined to save her this time. And he also wants to prove to Eri that heroes do exist. That determination makes him unstoppable. He’s far too strong! He blows up the two yakuzas without them being able to do anything.
It is at this point that one of the two « Disposable », Shin Nemoto, reappears. Chisaki gives him the special bullets and asks him to take care of Mirio. Knowing that the hero is ready to put his life in danger for d’Eri, Shin aims at the girl. And so, by covering her with his body, the Mirio gets injected with the drug and loses his powers.
Overhaul thinks he’s won and yet, even though his opponent has lost his Quirks and is protecting the little girl, he can’t beat him. By watching and anticipating the moves, Mirio proves to Eri that he is still LeMillion, he is still her hero! But, little by little, he gets dominated until Chisaki manages to hurt him and immobilize him. Then a wall explodes and Izuku appears.
So much emotion for what was THE MOMENT I expected most from this season! So, of course, the episode is of quality, but, as a reader of the manga, I can’t help thinking that the studio could have done better. This fight was worth it ! It is the pinnacle of this arc of the Yakuzas and therefore, would have deserved several sakuga sequences (a term that evokes high quality animated scenes) instead of these still images. Where Tohei gave us a little too much with the confrontation between Kaido and Luffy (but don’t complain, they’ve got us used to so much worse), the Bones studio (which produces My Hero Academia) didn’t do enough for Lemillion, even though he’s the other main character of this season!
Nevertheless, the direction, the seiyus (character doublers) and the music still managed to create an epic moment, I just regret that the animation has not been upgraded for the occasion.
Can’t wait to see what they will do with the next episode.
