X-Less is the first casualty of the newly awakened Tomura in My Hero Academia Episode 5. Elsewhere, Crust fights the Eleph Nomu, while Eraser Head tries to focus on keeping three Nomu powers at bay with his Erasure Quirk. Endeavor is fighting Woman, while trying to defend Mirko. He uses his Ultimate Move Hell Spider, a technique that emits beams of fire that slices through a target. Woman dodges the attack without much difficulty but is hit by Gran Torino before she can reach Endeavor.
Three minutes earlier at the Villa, Tsukuyomi spots Hawks, and rushes to help him. Just as Dabi is about to finish Hawks, Tsukuyomi knocks the villain away. Dark Shadow tells him that almost all of Hawks feathers are gone. Dabi is surprised that the Heroes use students in this war and makes a point of telling Tsukuyomi that Hawks killed Twice. Dabi’s general goal is to undermine and ultimately destroy the image of Heroes.
Tsukuyomi escapes with Hawks
Before Tsukuyomi can contemplate what Dabi told him, Dabi attacks. Both Hawks and Tsukuyomi are weak to fire. Tsukuyomi’s Dark Shadow main weakness is light and Hawks is fire. During the fight, Hawks informs Tsukuyomi that Dabi runs his mouth to stall for time. He assumes that he does this to “charge” his fire. They manage to escape but Hawks get knocked out during it. However, Dabi is still able to locate them. Before he can finish them Geten uses his ice to create a massive pillar of ice, allowing Tsukuyomi and Hawks escape.
The evacuation is going smoothly in Jaku City until Tomura unleashes an awakened Decay attack. Deku is contacted by the first user of One For All who tells him that “he” has awakened. The heroes inside the lab flees. Eraser Head is grabbed by one of the High-Ends as they leave, before the Decay can reach Eraser Head, Crust interferes and gives a thumbs up as he dies. Panic spreads as fast as the decay, with heroes dying and failing to stop the spread. In the crater that was once the hospital, Tomura opens up a machine that houses the Quirk- Destroying Drug. Tomura makes a call to Gigantomachia and tells him to “destroy” exciting the beast.
There wasn’t much to comment on in this episode. I am really excited for the next few episodes. The fight between Tomura and the heroes was intense. So far this season hasn’t disappointed me and I don’t expect it to now.
