Deku attempting to learn to control his power

Gentle presents his argument for why he’s a villain. He’s more like a modern-day robin-hood or as he puts it a “Gentleman Thief.” Despite working for six years to get his message out, Gentle has been surpassed by the likes of Hero Killer: Stain. As a result, the League of Villians has become the standard for what people assume villains are. Meanwhile, the other classes are resentful of Class 1-A performing for “them.” Regardless, Class 1-A needs to pick a song and find a drummer. Apparently Bakugo took music classes as a child. After some manipulation from Denki, he demonstrates that he can play the drums. However, he’s uninterested in playing. Having overheard the other classes talk about Class 1-A, he doesn’t think that the other classes would want to hear them play.

In a surprising twist. Or maybe not. Bakugo is upset that Class 1-A feels the need to care about the other class’s feelings. It wasn’t their fault that they were attacked by villains. He instead encourages his classmates to “kill everyone in U.A with their sound.” I completely agree with Bakugo here. The other classes seem to be jealous of Class 1-A and as a consequence blamed them for being victims of the villains. It’s really a selfish take considering the fact that the villain was willing to kill many of the students. Bakugo’s argument goes over well, as it should.

Gentle’s plan of attack

Gentle plans on sneaking into U.A during the festival. It’s going to be difficult for him because of all the added security. Meanwhile, Deku and All Might train his quirk. All Might has him using Full Cowling at 20 percent. He then has Deku send out one attack after another from a single spot. Deku jumps up and kicks the air causing a torrent of wind. All Might goes through the six stages that Deku has gone through so far. Without much prompting Deku realizes that if he uses number 2 and number 6 at the same time, he can draw out power at his limit instantly. As I mentioned previously I don’t really care about the performance from Class 1-A, even though I strongly agreed with Bakugo’s sentiments. The breakthrough for Deku is more interesting and I’m excited to see what comes of it.
