In the previous episode, we saw that; exhausted Deku encounters The Dictator, one of the Jailbreakers, and staggers; Class A arrives at the right time and saves him from trouble.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 24

Deku Is Not Welcomed At UA

After Deku enters UA, he is welcomed with screams and hatred, yes hatred not love or respect for what he did. Why? because for obvious reasons people are selfish and the reality is when it will come to one’s safety they won’t care for a hero especially a hero who is the reason behind the war and destruction.

UA’s Impenetrable Barrier

The episode shifts to a flashback where we also see class-A discussing with the principal about the people’s safety. The principal assures them that UA is possessing the best defensive system that; will keep everyone safe inside.

The defensive mechanism is shocking! Even I took aback after listening to the mind-blowing defense system. The defense system is built; in such a way that there’s a meshwork of tunnels inside which will keep the shelters and buildings moving to take them to different places. In the worst case, scenario people will be moved to Shiketsu in the west which also has the best defense mechanism in place.

The defense mechanism sounds dynamic and powerful, and I can’t wait to see the final battle taking place in UA; itself. Now that Deku is back and caused unsettling among the civilians, some started booing and criticizing the heroes’ decision.

Crowd Goes Wild

The Principal tried his best but could not convince the people. The principal has great lines in the anime which will make you feel more connected to the episode. The random characters or bystanders keep throwing harsh criticism at Deku, yes it feels horrible to see that the most loved hero is considered the most dangerous hero right now.

My Hero Academia Crowd Goes Wild

People do have a reasonable point, and we can’t blame them either because let’s imagine if we were in the shoes of someone standing in the crowd watching people die, witnessing disasters, and seeing your city burn to ashes then definitely we would be in no condition to accept Deku. But here comes the twist, just like the principal said in the anime that it only takes one step to bring forth even a greater hero than Almighty.

Ochaco Takes The First Step

Ochaco realizes that if the crowd falls into more negativity, then; Deku will have no chance to return. She takes the mic and swoosh she goes up in the air and lands at the nearest building. Ochako’s words do not feel scripted or like a speech rather they felt natural like a teenager trying to convince an angry mob not to bully her.

Ochaco explains how Deku has been fighting and traveling for so long that he didn’t even have time to clean himself up. People keep throwing more questions at her but she tells them that even though he is a superhero with special powers but he is not a special person he is just another high school student; she ends with “Please let this place continue to be his hero academy”.

My Hero Academia Ochaco Takes The First Step

The last few lines of Ochaco throwback in time, and we realize how long it has been since Deku started his journey from a zero to a hero. Apart from Ochaco’s speech we also saw glimpses of her past which connected well with her words.

Kota Runs Towards Deku

After her game-changing speech, the crowd starts to sympathize with Deku, and the first ones to run towards him are Kota, the kid whom Deku once saved from the criminal who killed Kota’s parents and the unknown female heteromorph.

Atlas, crowd eases, and Deku is allowed to rest in UA till he recovers, and finally overcomes the stepping stone. But what awaits UA is terrifying horror as we see Stain at the end of My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 24. The episode ends with a cliffhanger hinting at Stain’s return.

My Hero Academia Kota Runs Towards Deku

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 24 was a battle of words rather than fists, and the strong usage of scripts was perfect. I would say the voice acting of Ochaco was like a cherry on the cake and without her, the whole episode would have fallen apart.


I think that the My Hero Academia Season 6 will end with a peaceful ending but with a massive cliffhanger at end of My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 25. My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 24 is available on Crunchyroll and other anime streaming sites as well.
