My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 22 Spoilers: What Next Can We Expect from the Battle against Twice vs. Skeptic?

In Episode 22, we will be most likely to witness the battle between Twice and Skeptic; in the past, we have seen that Twice had no control over the doubles he created. Hence he almost got killed by one of them and was deeply traumatized. 

But now, his will to save Himiko is so strong that he will most probably overcome his past struggles and create one army of doubles of himself, which will most likely fight with Skeptic. 

Skeptic’s goal here is simple he wants to take advantage of Twice’s mental instability and try to kill Himiko, which will further descent Twice into insanity. 

So in the next episode, it is expected that he will finally realize that he is not double and will be free from his mental constraints. 

And as per the manga, he will create an army of double of himself which will fight against Skeptic and a double for Himiko to give her blood transfusion to save her life.

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 21 Recap: The Story of Metahuman Liberation Army

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 21, titled “Revival,” starts with Midoriya’s voice-over on the times when there was chaos among the people and gifted and non-gifted people used to co-exist together. 

During that time, Chikara Yotsubashi(Destro) began preached about the freedom of Quirks and gained many followers who believed in his idea. So, eventually, he set up an army known as Metahuman Liberation Army, also known as MLA. 

This step of Destro led to a dispute with the government, and the MLA army lost. As a result, Destro and other high-ranking leaders of MLA were arrested, and the remaining group was scattered.

With Destro being in prison, he didn’t give up on his idea and eventually wrote a book to inspire others which were based on the libration of Quirks. Later on, he committed suicide. 

It is hinted that the new leader of MLA army Re-Destro is none but Chikara Yotsubashi’s son. Re-Destro now decides to take down the League, and as the League arrives at the outskirts of Deika city for the battle.  

Gigantomachia will wake them and come looking for Tomura, enabling the League to take out both the MLA and All For One’s bodyguard. 

We also learned about Koukuu Hanabata or Trumpet, who is publically a politician for the Hearts and Mind Party. Still, he is one of the high-ranking members of MLA. And Curious was also there with him, the executive director of Shoowaysha and the high-ranking member of the MLA army. 

As the fight between MLA and the Leagues starts, we witness Tomura and his group an advantage over their opponents as they are way more powerful, but the issue is that they are pretty un-numbered.

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 21 Ending Explained: What Is Himiko Toga’s Quirk?

The My Hero Academia Episode 21 tells us about the past of Himiko as the battle between League and MLA stars we see Trumpet signals about the Revival celebration and hundreds and thousands of MLA army members starts to attack the League. 

The all-in-one attack forces all the members of the League to be scattered. 

Himiko faces Curious elsewhere, and as the battle starts, Curious starts to attack Himiko with several of her lackeys and tries to corner her and at the same time interviews her to know the reason behind becoming a villain. She also sheds light on her past. 

Himiko easily defeats the lackeys with her vampiric ability. As the interview between both of them goes on, it is revealed that Himiko was the oldest child of her family; at a young age, her power started to manifest with her natural curiosity, which was blood. 

Once her parents saw her engulfing with bird’s blood, that made them terrified, so they tried their best to restrain her ability. 

But later, as she joined the school, she was interested in some of her classmates, Saito, who used to get into fights and was wounded all the time. 

One day she stabbed Saito with a boxcutter and again sucked out his blood with the straw. After that incident, she was on the run. Her Quirks and the past clearly explain why she was so obsessed with Midoriya, who used to be beaten up every time.

What Happened in the fight between Curious and Himiko? Who Won the Fight? And Is Curious Dead? 

In the fight against Himiko and Curious, Curious is defeated and died after Himiko generates a new feature of her Quirk and transforms herself from the blood taken by Ochako. 

The unique Quirk allows her to transform into any individual whose blood she consumes. Hence, as she drank Ochako’s blood, she uses Ochako’s Quirk Zero Gravity to raise Curious and her lackeys up in the air and then drops them dead. 

So yes, Curious is now no more alive in the My Hero Academia. 

What Happens to Twice and Himiko?

After the fight with Curious, Himiko was in the shed and was unconscious. Then Twice finds her and decides to protect her.  

But Skeptic sends out human puppets that he created with his Quirk after them as he knew that Twice almost died by the doubles he made with his Quirk.

We should inform those we don’t know about Doubles that Twice can create clones of any people or things dead or alive.

But the problem is that he doesn’t have any control over those clones; hence, the double he created had no control over them, and thus they attacked Twice himself, and while fighting them off, he almost died. 

The trauma Twice suffered remained within himself all this while. As soon as the Skeptic puppets tried to attack him and Himiko, the desire for Twice to save Himiko’s life was so powerful that he began overcoming his trauma and created an army of Doubles of himself. And later, he made a Double of her to give her a blood transfusion to save her life.
