My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 22: What to Expect?

Based on the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kouhei Horikoshi, ‘My Hero Academia’ or ‘Boku no Hero Academia’ is a superhero action anime. The story is set in a world where 80% of the population has superpowers or Quirks. However, the protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, was born without any Quirks and has suffered relentless and horrible bullying because of it. His life changes when All Might, Izuku’s favorite pro-hero, chooses him as the successor for his One For All Quirk.

In episode 21, the Revival Celebration of the Meta Liberation Army officially begins. The League of Villains arrives in Deika City, and their fight with the MLA starts. Himiko takes on Curious and ultimately defeats her by developing a new aspect of her Quirk. Elsewhere, Tomura disintegrates an entire group of people by touching only one of them, and Dabi fights an Ice Quirk user named Geten. Twice later finds Himiko unconscious in a storage shed, as Skeptic comes for both of them with his puppets. If you are wondering what’s in store for you in the next episode, we got you covered.

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 22 Spoilers

Episode 22 will most likely focus on the battle between Twice and Skeptic. In the past, Twice was almost killed by the Doubles he created. The incident left him deeply traumatized. By Skeptic’s actions, it’s apparent he is trying to take advantage of Twice’s mental instability. Skeptic’s puppets might attack and try to break an unconscious Himiko’s neck, prompting Twice’s further descent into insanity.

Flashback scenes will explore Twice’s past and show why Giran is so important to him. If the puppets continue to inflict injuries on him, he will finally realize that he is not one of the doubles, freeing his Quirk from self-imposed mental constraints. He will then replicate himself so many times that the number difference between the League and the MLA will not matter any longer.
