I/ MY HERO ACADEMIA ARCS: ENTRY EXAMINATION (chapter 1 to 4 of the manga & episode 1 to 4 of the anime)
This is the first of the My Hero Academia arcs, we are in the presence of a world where 80% of the world population has superpowers called “Alters”. It is in this context that a young boy named izuku midoriya dreams of becoming a superhero like his idol. Given such a society where superpowers are the currency, becoming a hero is not impossible. But Izuku’s dream is unrealizable because he is unfortunately part of the 20% of the world population who has not possessed alter and this since his birth. However, this situation is likely to change very quickly.
The meeting with All might
One Day, the number 1 of the heroes defeats a villain by the name of : “le Gluant“. Given his defeat, the villain fled through the sewers with stolen money then He met Izuku and decided to attack. But the surprise is great because it’s All Might who comes to the rescue with his famous attack “the Texas Smash”. Subsequently All Might discovers that Izuku admires since his childhood and wants to become a hero as strong as him but that unfortunately he has no Quirks. That’s when All Might asks him to drop the idea of becoming a hero and focus on a more achievable dream.
Izuku runs towards his house, however he sees the same villain attacking his childhood friend and executioner: KATSUKI BAKUGO. Indeed, the sticky seeks to seize the body of Bakugo in order to be able to use his Quirk to take revenge on All Might. Bakugo’s Quirk consisting in creating explosions with the sweat emitted by his hands. On the other hand, professional heroes can’t do anything about this atrocious scène. That’s when Izuku ran to save his friend by throwing his schoolbag. Thus Bakugo could breathe a little, then All Might came to slay the villain again for good.
Birth of a new hero
With Katsuki’s rescue over, All Might asks Izuku to follow him. It was then that he confessed to having been fascinated by Izuku’s gesture towards his friend, an act that he describes as that of a “real hero”! He also offered to impart his power called “One For All” to izuku. One For All is about transmitting your power from one person to another in order to make it more powerful. All Might seriously injured since his confrontation with a villain from which he now has a frail and puny appearance concealed by the use of a One For All. Nonetheless note that as it is, passing One For All to Izuku would destroy his body as he could not stand it.
So All Might then decides to undergo an intensive 10 month training to Izuku named “American Dream” so that his body is ready during the transmission of One For All. After the 10 months of training are over, All Might decides to explain to Izuku how to get the One For All. At the time, Izuku shocked but he accept and this is how One For All comes to him.
The entrance exam
Some time later came the entrance exam to Yuei (UA), the most prestigious hero training school in Japan! And Izuku decides to join. The UA exam divides into two parts: THE WRITTEN EXAM AND THE PRACTICAL EXAM.
The second is obviously the more difficult of the two. Indeed, the exam candidates face robots in an urban combat simulation. The principle is to immobilize the naughty robots in order to score points and that in ten minutes depending on the value of the robot’s points! The more points you score, the more chance you have to succed. Candidates don’t fight during the simulation, those who do will be disqualified. In order to avoid any possible cooperation, pupils coming from the same middle school are placed in different zones. In addition to score “villain points”, judges monitor reward points for heroic acts, however, this criterion is unknown to candidates so that it is motivated only by their altruism and not by the scoring bait in addition.
Conduct of the examination
Each villainous robot is worth a certain number of points depending on their difficulty level.
- 1point: Easy robots
- 2 points: Intermediate (or medium) robots
- 3points: Difficult robots
- 0 point: Arena trap
Moreover, arena traps are massive robots scattered around city aftershocks in order to trap and eliminate people to get high scores. They are not meant to be fought, which is why they are not worth any points. As the time for the practical test draws to a close, students at Yuei’s faculty use the “Yakuri Switch” to free the giant robots worth no points. Their objective was to see how the students would react to a desperate situation created by the giant robots, the occasion for some candidates to really shine.
This is how the situation quickly becomes unmanageable but izuku shows his heroic nature by saving OCHACO URARAKA from a giant robot in a single shot. Finally Izuku had no points and was sorely lacking in time, but his sacrifice to Ochaco, even if it meant breaking an arm and a leg, impressed the examiners who then decided to grant him 60 rescue points! What allowed them to pass the UA exam
Results of the entrance exam
One week later, the results come out and reach everyone’s ears :
- 1st: Katsuki bakugo (77 points 0 heroic point)
- 2nd: Eijiro Kirishima (39 points 35 heroic points)
- 3rd: Ochaco Uraraka (28 points 45 heroic points)
- 4th: Ibara Shiozaki (36 points. 32 heroic points)

After the incident against the alliance of villains, Yuei High School organizes an annual championship with the aim of showing the alters and the abilities of the students to professional heroes looking for acolytes. Thus yuei’s championship begins. Shortly before the start of the tournament, Todoroki confesses to Izuku that he wants to face him. Students from Yuei’s 3 streams: General, Heroic and Assistance participate in an obstacle course. During the obstacle course, Todoroki remained in the lead followed closely by Bakugo but at the last obstacle, izuku passed in front of them and finished 1st. But his happiness is short-lived when he learns that being the first, he is the target of all the candidates.
The Battle of the Horsemen
This is the next round, the battle of the riders. Izuku teams up with Ochaco, tokoyami and Mei. Being the team with the most points, they just passed this test. The other 16 students participate in the last event which is an individual fight but shortly before, todoroki has another discussion with Izuku in which he reveals that he thinks that Izuku is the son of All Might and that as the son of Endeavor, the 2nd best hero of Japan, he intends to defeat Izuku. He also explains why he hates his father so much and why he refuses to use his left side, which is that of the flames inherited from his father.
One For All VS Brainwashing
In the 1st round, Izuku faces Hitoshi Shinso and his alter Brainwashing. The fight is intense and izuku is about to leave the arena and thus be eliminated. However, he sees a glow and strange silhouettes that wake him up! He uses the One For All to regain control of his body and defeats Shinso.

Indeed Shoto’s father never managed to match All Might regardless of his power. However, Shoto, who possesses both the powers of his mother and his father, represented Endeavor’s last hope in order to satisfy his thirst for revenge.
We also learn that the mark on Shoto’s face was caused by his mother when she poured boiling water on his face because his face reminds him of Endeavor’s. It was then that izuku, over the course of the fight, managed to remind Shoto of a sentence that his mother had told him. She tells him that using his left side is not bad, especially if he wanted to become a hero. It was there that his flames appeared to the delight of his father!

Yuei’s championship is now over with Katsuki Bakugo as the winner. The head teacher of the second A of Yuei High School, shota aizawa, informs the students of the various recommendations they have. Indeed following their different performances during the championship, the professional heroes offer internships in order to do to the students. They will have to find a hero’s name under the supervision of the heroine not recommended at least 18 years old: MIDNIGHT!
It is also a fairly important course but with names all more far-fetched from each other. Later, the time to choose the place of internship approaches, Tenya Iida chooses an agency in the city of Hosu. This is the city where his older brother known as Ingenium is attacked by Stain, the hero killer. A recent villain who attacks professional heroes.
Meanwhile, izuku can’t choose which agency to go to. This is how All Might intervenes, He declares that his master “Gran Torino” is ready to take care of Izuku for his internship. Something that izuku accepts. Arriving in the Gran Torino agency, izuku realizes that this one is far from being as he had imagined until then. When all of a sudden, gran torino uses his alter to attack izuku. Then follows a fight between Izuku and Gran Torino, where he learns more about the One For All.
The invitation of the alliance of villains
The alliance of villains, echoing Stain’s actions, the alliance then offers him to join their ranks. Something he refuses elsewhere. Then he returns to Hosu to kill even more heroes. Izuku masters his power better with the learning of Gran Torino. He trains hard in order to improve when Gran Torino decides to take him to the Shibuya district.Shigaraki goes to Hosu to let go of his Brainless. One of them attacks the train taken by Izuku and Gran Torino. Gran Torino then decides to confront him in order to protect civilians. For his part, Izuku worried about Tenya since his sudden departure for Hosu after Yuei’s championship, decides to go and help him so that he is not in danger.
The sense of justice
Tenya has been pursuing Stain for a long time and finally finds him in an alley as Stain prepares to kill a professional hero. From then on, a fight ensues between the one who came to do justice to himself and the one who wants to kill the heroes. But in the face of Stain’s terrible abilities, Iida is no longer likely to make him worse. The rather strange alter of stain paralyzes tenya and he can no longer move. Stain is ready to shoot him down but Izuku intervenes !
However, against all odds, Iida is against Izuku’s intervention. Tenya then realizes that doing justice yourself is not worthy of a hero. In addition, if he is in danger, he will always be able to count on his friends. Izuku confronts Stain but after a while he too is fooled by Stain’s alter. Stain is about to eliminate them when suddenly, Shoto intervenes! It is then that it is discovered that before the beginning of the confrontation of Izuku and Stain, izuku sent his position to Shoto. While the latter fought the nomu (brainless) with the help of his father and other professional heroes.
The alter of coagulation
He then hypothesizes that stain’s alter (coagulation) has a different duration of action from one blood group to another! In the sequel, Izuku manages to move entirely in order to help Shoto in his fierce fight against this fearsome and bloodthirsty villain. However, despite their efforts, stain remains a formidable opponent! Iida still under the effect of Stain and in tears can only watch helplessly in the face of the sacrifice of her two friends. That’s when Iida surpasses her limits! And used his new technique: RECIPRO BURST! In order to defeat Stain, the hero killer. Finally Endeavor and Gran Torino arrive.
The end of the hero killer
Stain the hero killer, whose real name is CHIZOME AGAKURO, is subdued and arrested. When he regains consciousness and begins to advocate “the renewal of superheroes”. He also adds that a true hero should not seek rewards or compensation and that the title of HERO. That’s when it came Endeavor and Gran Torino who had been looking for Izuku in Hosu. Stain, the hero killer of his real name CHIZOME AGAKURO, is subdued and ready to go to prison when he regains consciousness and began to advocate “the renewal of heroes” saying that a REAL hero should not seek rewards or compensation. Also, the title of hero should be reserved for those who are ready for the ultimate sacrifice!
In the sequel, Stain’s speech is viewed hundreds of thousands of times and makes a big buzz on social networks. The video goes viral and is immediately removed from interest. However, Stain’s speech changed the mentality of many people towards heroes. This also benefits Tomura Shigaraki. What for? Because two new members join the ranks of the alliance of villains.

Some time after the confrontation against Stain the hero killer, the quarterly exams are approaching. As a result, Yuei’s second A prepares for practical and written exams. That’s when Neito Monoma of the second B intervenes who heard about the exploits of our young heroes. Moreover, they do not hesitate to let them know that their moment of glory has passed! But Itsuka also a student in Second B quickly calms his ardor. She then reveals that the practical exam is a fight against simulator robots. How did she find out? Because she simply asked a student of higher class. Something that surprises Izuku and that he tries to analyze. Eventually he comes to the conclusion that doing this is not cheating. Rather, this is “the acquisition of prior knowledge […] integrated as an essential part of the examination.” All the students are therefore surprised, finally, except Katsuki Bakugo who is venerated on the other hand. Because he finds that Izuku uses some of his movements through the one for all route.
Reversal of the situation
After 3 days of written exams, the students of the second A have the certainty that they are facing robots. But in reality, they are surprised to learn that the exam is not against robots but rather against their teachers! By the way, in a flashback to a meeting related to the practical test, we learn that the choice of the test is about robots. But superhero “Snipe” protests and says: «company fights against robots don’t come close enough to real-world combat». Thus, following a discussion, Yuei’s headmaster comes to the conclusion that for the improvement of their level, it is necessary to have examinations focused on combat activities in 1 vs 1. And this by the emphasis on a slightly more realistic teaching environment!

XV/ ARCS OF MY HERO ACADEMIA: SUPERPOWER LIBERATION ARMY (chapter 218 to 240 of the manga and 108 to 112 of the anime)
In this fifteenth My Hero Academia arcs, the Alliance of Super-Villains is at its worst, it is weak and without money. So, the Liberation Army of the superpowers wants to take advantage of it in order to declare war on the villains and in turn to put itself forward. This army is under the command of Re Destro. Clearly, its objective is to overthrow the current system in order to give everyone the opportunity to use their alter 100%. For his part, the mysterious doctor of All For One decides to help the Alliance through the granting of new opportunities. The Alliance of Super-Villains is therefore forced to train if it hopes to achieve its goals.
In another setting, the CEO of Detnerat meets with his collaborators to discuss the main issue of organizations threatening to go beyond the name of Destro. Thus, the destruction of these organizations is necessary, for example the Alliance of Villains.
Chitose vs Himiko
The army’s plan is set in motion. First, she captures the league broker and then Re destro issues a declaration of war against the alliance of villains. In order to force the coming of the alliance to Deika City and proceed to their elimination. Indeed, Deika City is the perfect place for the Liberation Army because of its location. Roads entering and leaving the city are easily manipulable. Deika is a district where the majority of the inhabitants align with the Liberation Army. In addition, one of the army agents, Slinding Go, escorts the Alliance of Supervillains into the city. This city where leaders Koukuu Hanabata and Chitose Kizuki announce the beginning of the Celebration of Renewal.
From there, dozens of citizens like warriors for liberation, attack the six members of the alliance. Finally indifferent to the other five villains, Chitose confronts Himiko Toga and demands an interview covering her descent into madness. Against all odds, Chitose goes so far as to use his own subordinates as human bombs. What for? In order to further corner Himiko and prevent him from transforming by exploding their ingested blood in his body in the absence of disturbances of the “interview”. However, Himiko uses his alter to transform into Ochaco who catches Chitose off guard. When Himiko activates Zero Gravity to levitate it in the air alongside his minions. Stunned, Chitose supposes that fear death allowed the spontaneous evolution of alter Himiko. On the other hand, Himiko replies that she is wrong and that Himiko only wants to “love” even more.
The Alliance on the margins
Chitose begins to say that this is his best interview before Himiko disables Gravity Zero, which sends Chitose and his minions crashing to the ground. For his part, Tomura disintegrates a swarm of warriors. He annihilates several members and his alter while Chitose’s death later relates to the rest of his comrades who mourn him. In order to take revenge on Himiko, Skeptic watches the battle, waiting for twice to meet Himiko. At this time, Apocrypha engages Dabi in the battle to keep him in the occupation. As soon as Twice and Himiko come into contact, Skeptic sends twice puppets to ambush him. And besides, he tries his puppets to kill Himiko and capture Twice for future plans. However, his actions allow Twice to defeat his inner demons and overwhelm the puppets.
Re Destro’s strategy
The streets soon fill up with clones of Twice. Re destro is therefore shocked that Twice tames his trauma. Also he commented on the circumstances of Skeptic’s failure failed and adds that this is rare. However, the latter claims to have a plan and then leaves while Giran notices their loss of number because of Twice. Rikiya admits that he is right on the one hand but reveals on the other that he has an asset to help. With that, he wishes good luck to his comrade Apocrypha in his efforts.
Subsequently, Re-Destro finds himself facing the clones of Twice and they taunt his bald head. Bored, Re-Destro notices that Twice’s puns lack comedy. Two clones attack him but he uses his alter to defeat and repel them. Re-Destro also reveals that he never intended to kill Giran, but promises to do so if he continues to stand up against him. Re-Destro also reveals the origins and goals of his father’s ambitions and how he intends to make them a reality.
The Confrontation of the Leaders
Re-Destro then asks if he really thinks they will beat him. Then he hears Tomura’s clone say that disaster is coming, when suddenly the real Tomura reaches the tower and destroys it in one fell swoop. Re-destro survives the fall and eventually meets Tomura who recognizes him from Detnerat’s commercials. And Re-destro replies that he won’t get his answer until he prepares for a fight. The two leaders clash. By activating his alter, Re-destro increases his size while Tomura taunts him and asks him where his bravado went when he called the league. In response, Re-Destro expresses his anger before he and Tomura begin to fight with Re-Destro who begins to grab Tomura’s hand and destroy it for killing several of his subordinates.
Thus, by taunting Tomura in turn, Re-Destro untnowingly destroys some hands on Tomura’s costume. This triggers Tomura’s instincts, allowing him to break down part of his opponent’s hand using just two fingers. This phenomenon surprises Re-Destro and makes him throw Tomura immediately, Re-Destro is surprised by the erroneous information he received about “Disintegration”. Because according to the hypothesis, Tomura needs his five fingers to activate it.
Yet, he realizes that Tomura is fully awakening his powers. Just like his subordinate Apocrypha at a previous event. Suddenly Tomura rushes towards him, Re-Destro also realizes that the latter is much more agile and fast than when he was in Kamino. And as such much more dangerous. In order to put an end to this situation, Re-Destro believes that he has finished playing and proceeds to inflate his body to 80% release. Thus his body contorts and swells until he becomes demonic. He then releases his Special Technique: Stress Relief. This then tears several blocks with the intention of killing Shigaraki.
Shigaraki Tomura: Origins
Shigaraki remembers his past, when he was Tenko Shimura and living with his family. However, one often sees the punishments of his father Kotaro Shimura because his son has a fascination for heroes. His father responds in parallel, thus forcing the young tenko to live outside. Tenko does not seem to have an alter but he suffers from unknown physical changes. However, his mother and grandparents are still there for him and encourage him. Just like her sister who shows her a picture of their father and grandmother, and they learn that she was a heroine. Unfortunately, Kotaro discovers this and gives his son another punishment. Not to mention humiliating the heroes to protect others and leave their families in abandonment. Tenko’s other parents, on the other hand, observe his suffering, which he begs to help.. But they can only witness in horror.
While outside, Tenko confides in the family dog how much he hates everyone for letting him suffer.
Back in the present: the arrival of Gigantomachia
In the present, Re-Destro’s surprise is more or less great. Indeed he sees Tomura not only survive, but also having no physical alteration despite his technique. He then finds with shock that before the attack hit him, Tomura has touched and destroyed him. On the other hand, when this happens, Gigantomachia attacks several members of the army, which assumes that the league was hiding him. Skeptic then tries to contact Re-Destro, but because of the fight against Tomura, he ignores Skeptic’s warning.
Back to the past: involuntary slaughter
In another flashback, a young Tenko clings to his dog, when suddenly “Disintegration” activates. This causes the dog to crumble in his hands. Later, a sad Hana comes outside to apologize to Tenko for her reluctance, but she eventually runs away in fear. On the other hand, a frantic Tenko tries to catch up with her and he ends up disintegrating her by accident.
Tenko’s grandparents and mother go out to see what’s going on and Tenko ends up killing them when his alter spreads in his panic. Kotaro also goes out and sees the chaos, Tenko runs to him for help, however he scares his father. So he takes some garden tools to protect himself and order him to stop. This turns out to be a mistake, as a Tenko enlists and charges his father with the intention of killing him. Finally he touches his father’s face and then the decomposing spreads and destroys the whole house. Tenko finally appreciates the act that now puts an end to his father’s abuse. This is the birth of Tomura Shigaraki.
All For One, the benefactor
After the murder of his family, the new orphan turns himself in the street. Tomura then remembers that people often passed by him but never offered him their help, due to his menacing appearance while assuming that a hero would take care of it. Tomura begins to think that this is a punishment for his actions. Eventually, a man named All For One saves him, he blames society since he was no one did it instead. All For One therefore uses this incident as a way to stimulate Tenko’s new hatred for the heroes. He also begins to groom him as an adopted son. Tenko receives his own room. In addition, Kyudai Garaki “decorates” the young boy with the disembodied hands of members of his former family.
First, All For One teaches Tenko to accept what he feels and his new personality. Then All For One later renamed Tenko as Tomura Shigaraki. All For One elaborates that “Tomura” comes from the word “Tomurau” which means “to cry”. While “Shigaraki” is the real last name of All For One. Finally, he raises Tomura as part of the Alliance of Supervillains. So that he finally becomes his successor within the organization.
Back in the present: an intense fight
Re-Destro then attempts to finish Tomura with 100% of his power activated. However, Tomura retaliates and disintegrates his energy tendrils with ease. This destroyed almost the entire city of Deika, crumbling most of the surrounding buildings. Re-Destro therefore receives ridicule from Tomura by telling him that he understands to destroy everything that bothers him for pleasure. Re-Destro begins to panic as Tomura walks towards him with the intention of killing. Admittedly, Re-Destro refutes Tomura’s claim and proceeds to invoke his support article to amplify his stress. However, Re-Destro realizes that he feels fear towards Tomura and briefly recalls his childhood past. Now armored, Re-Destro prepares to use 150% of his power, by which Tomura does not seem disturbed at all. Elsewhere, Twice and her clones move through the chaos, hoping to regroup with the other members of the Alliance after this conflict.
The power of Gigantomachia
Compress witnesses the power of Gigantomachia and heads towards Dabi. Dabi tells Compress that he almost burns Apocrypha, who decides to call Daruma Ujiko to teleport the Alliance to safety. However, Daruma refuses since Johnny seems to have limits to his alter. He also adds that he has no intention of associating himself with groups ready to reveal their position to their enemies.
Tomura blithely unleashes all his power, with nothing left to hold him back. Meanwhile, one of Twice’s doubles escorts Giran to safety and Skeptic heads to Re-Destro’s location with Apocrypha seriously injured. Tomura remembers the words of All For One and realizes that the combination of hatred and anger is the key to true freedom. Tomura begins to laugh euphoricly in his victory.
Re-Destro struggles to resist Tomura’s sheer power as his Krestro armor begins to break. Re-Destro deduces that Tomura must have unlimited range in his attacks. He then tries to launch his arsenal of missiles but does not notice the effects of Tomura’s alter who exceeds his limits.Eventually, forced to evacuate, Re-Destro deactivates his decaying armor and testifies to the total chaos that Tomura has inflicted on his beloved city. A desperate Re-Destro tries to escape but falls straight to the ground with nothing to support him. When this happens, Tomura laughs triumphantly with the desire to destroy everything on his way.
The final outcome
Re Destro kneels before Tomura. However, Re-Destro barely survives because he is forced to cut off his legs with a piece of his armor to prevent the Disintegration effect from spreading. Now in the losing camp, he witnesses Tomura’s approach. And the latter tells with irony that he remembers the reason for this battle, just a challenge. On the spot, Trumpet, Spinner and the other soldiers of the Superpower Liberation Army arrive on the scene. Trumpet orders his soldiers to attack Tomura but they stop immediately as Tomura gives them an icy smile. Surprisingly, Re-Destro keeps his subordinates at bay not wanting to bring more unnecessary losses. Re-Destro admits that his people are not actually following his will but rather Destro’s command. He then realizes that Tomura’s leadership skills are better suited to lead his army.
The advent of the next symbol of fear
That being said, Re-Destro surrenders and gives the strength of his army to Tomura’s league. In turn, survivors of the battlefield witness the scene with astonishment. Spinner notes how beautiful the destroyed landscape looks. Looking at a victorious Tomura, Gigantomachia cries for joy as Tomura is definitely the successor to All For One. Satisfied with Re-Destro’s decision, Tomura asks him if he has enough money to make the Alliance lunch.
Then the Paranormal Liberation Front was formed. Subsequently, the news of the attack on the city was covered by the Liberation Army. The Alliance recovers from his wounds in a mansion before being called by Skeptic and Twice.Then a rally, where Re-Destro addresses the crowd of Liberation Warriors and Alliance affiliates. He claims that the army will be reborn and especially since he admits his errors of judgment on Tomura.In addition, Re-Destro persuades the crowd that Destro’s desire for freedom is Tomura. He also added to the crowd that he gave his position as Grand Commander to Tomura Shigaraki. So the army and the League are joining forces to seek “a deeper path to liberation.”
The society of heroes on alert
Tomura presents the new organization as the Paranormal Liberation Front. He states that the nine members (Re-Destro, Trumpet, Skeptic, Apocrypha, Spinner, Twice, Himiko, Dabi and Mister. Compress) on stage are the officers of the Front. And they will form squadrons to meet their needs. The crowd rejoices. Meanwhile, in the aftermath, Hawks analyzes the gravity of the situation. He realizes that it is too late and wants the neutralization of the League instead for the good of innocent civilians. He also realizes why Dabi allowed him to enter easily despite his suspicions about Best Jeanist’s body. Hawks deduces that with an army like that, the feel Good Inc network, the influence of Detnerat’s industry and perhaps several Brainless, Tomura gains power equal to or superior to the heroes.
The speech ends, as Tomura and his lieutenants leave Re-destro applauds Tomura for his speech and tries to kiss him. But Tomura told him to get out. After Re-Destro’s obedience, a Tomura collapses from exhaustion because of his injuries. Daruma Ujiko comments on the new name. Tomura reminds him of his promise. Doctor Ujiko replies that with the appearance of Tomura’s memories and the evolution of his alter, he grants power to Tomura. However, Ujiko has one last request. Elsewhere, Dabi meets Hawks among the crowd. Hawks wonders about getting some information. Also noting that there is still an unknown pipe that deserves revelation.
