My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 20 barrels head first into the Meta Liberation Army Arc. After the emotional episode last week, we finally see the League of Villains encounter Gigantomachia. All For One has amassed several supporters, Gigantomachia being the one of them, specifically as his bodyguard. At some point he’s modified with numerous Quirks. Gigantomachia is massive . His body is can tolerate a great deal of abuse and he shares a Gigantomachia Quirk with Mt. Lady (Yu Takeyama) and a low ranked villain, Giant Villain. However, Yu cannot assume a size in-between her normal height and her max (2062 centimeters), whereas, Gigantomachia can grow any size between his basic height and his peek, 2,500 centimeters. In addition to this difference, his bones stick out of his flesh as he grows.
Gigantomachia doesn’t seem to support All For One’s ideology, he appears more like a pet than a ally. When he overhears All For One’s voice, he stops in his tracks. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was brainwashed. Gigantomachia attacks the League of Villains, testing the “weak” Tomura. Doctor Kyudai Garaki believes his “loyalty” is so powerful that it would benefit Tomura to convince him to support him. Tomura isn’t interested. Using the Warping Quirk, Dr. Garaki transports the League to his underground laboratory. The Doctor is sitting at the end of a room filled with “High End Nomu” in large tanks.
Dr. Garaki tests Tomura Shigaraki
Dr. Garaki introduces himself as aide to All For One: Daruma Ujiko. He states everything he’s done is for All For One. He doesn’t believe Tomura is “worthy of his devotion.” If Tomura wants the same support as All For One he needs to prove himself. Tomura flashes back to when he first meet All For One. Alone in an alley, he’s “saved” by his new “Master.” We learn that the hands Tomura wears are actually real and the lasting remains of his murdered family. All For One plans on allowing Tomura’s hatred to “linger” and teach him to “direct” his hatred. His families hands have a very negative effect on him. As Tomura explains it, they “makes him feel both sick, but also calm in a way.”
He assumes that he will continue to hate “everything” regardless what happens to hero society. If he can’t control that anger, he will simply “destroy everything.” Dr. Daruma likes what he hears and agrees to help Tomura, only if the League can get Gigantomachia to submit. Dabi isn’t interested in helping. He says he’s found a “good ally (Hawks)” Dr. Daruma returns them to face. Gigantomachia. The League fights Gigantomachia for over a month. However, he’s slowing down. Suddenly, Twice gets a call from Giran. Re-Destro answers the phone. The leader of the Meta Liberation Army delcares war on the League. He tells them to come to Deika City and die by their hands. Tomura asks Daruma to send them to Deika, he will lure Gigantomachia there to deal with 110,000 Meta Liberation Army.
