My Hero Academia Season 4 Episode 15 Recap – Smoldering Flames
Published 9 months ago
Tsukauchi and Gran Torino head to the mountains to find Kurogiri‘s supposed hideout. It comes after receiving multiple witness reports in the past few days. Torino thinks the suspicious action means he‘s working on something. In any case, it‘s a great opportunity to capture the villain.
After receiving a hint from their scouting team, Gran Torino launches immediately to tackle Kurogiri. Yet instead of feeling alarmed, Kurogiri warns them that there has been a wildling lost in the forest area. He has come to find the wildling.
Suddenly, the ground shakes around them. Kurogiri notes that his master‘s prediction of the future is perfectly accurate. All For One mentored others aside from Tomura Shigaraki. The person is one of them. He is also one of All For One‘s most loyal servants, Gigantomachia. A gigantic man appears before them carrying a boombox on his neck. The ground shakes once again, and it‘s stronger.
Back at the hospital, Aizawa tells Midoriya not to feel guilty after hearing about the leagues‘ abduction of Overhaul. All the student interns have recovered and should return to school, except for Mirio, whose condition still needs observation. Since he can‘t visit Eri just yet, Midoriya opts to visit Mirio in his room.
He finds his upperclassman looking spry and already exercising on his bed. Mirio expresses frustration at being left behind but smiles just the same. He lost his quirk and mentor during the last fight, and he admits that it‘s hard. Even though he was strict, Nighteye always smiled at him. That‘s why he resolves to not cry and to continue working to become a hero.
Midoriya feels guilty that everything could have been prevented had Mirio received One For All. He suddenly blurts about transferring his quirk to him when Mirio cuts him off to say that it’s not acceptable. Losing his quirk would affect him greatly, and besides, he‘s Deku, the hero.
Mirio might regain his quirk once Eri learns how to use hers properly. He knows he can‘t continue studying at UA but still plans to get himself stronger after hearing Nighteye‘s last prediction.
Immediately after getting discharged, Midoriya and Kirishima get taken by the police for questioning on the Haissaikai.
Meanwhile, back at school, Bakugo and Todoroki prepare for their provisional exam.
Midoriya and Kirishima arrive late at the dorm alongside Tsuyu and Uraraka, who also got caught doing paperwork on the raid. The rest of Class 1-A meet them at the door, relieved that they‘re all safe. They shower them with treats and lots of care.
Bakugo and Todoroki retire to their rooms early for their training the next day.
A lot has changed for the intern team after such. Uraraka gets a strong urge to help other people after feeling that she fell short of rescuing Nighteye. Midoriya remembers his journey to save Eri, along with all the sacrifices that it entailed. Even though his body was worn out, it was still hard to sleep that night.
The next day, Present Mic and All Might accompany Bakugo and Todoroki for their training. Eraserhead won‘t be present during the days as he‘ll be helping Eri control her quirk. The two heroes will also serve as their bodyguards.
The day before, Gran Torino reports to All Might that they‘ve captured Kurogiri, but the operation cost a lot. Gigantomachia is still at large.
Endeavor finds All Might at the exam venue and wants to talk. Meanwhile, the UA and Shiketsu students meet up, unaware that there‘s a harder session ahead.
This episode was heavy. Even though they were successful in their operation, the students are still left questioning themselves. Rating: 3.8/5.
