My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 23 Recap: Tenko’s Tragic Backstory and How did he end up killing his whole family?
The Episode 23 of the series showed Tenko’s childhood and the story of how he activated his decay quirk. Tenko was fond of heroes from early childhood and always wanted to be one, but he didn’t have the quirk.
He had a grandmother named Nana Shimura; she was one of the famous heroes of her time, the seventh user of One For All, and the mentor of ‘Toshinori Yagi’ aka ‘All Might.’
But Tenko’s father Kotaro wasn’t fond of heroes at all, and Tenko’s fascination with heroes had always been an issue with his father as he didn’t like such behavior and always used to punish him for such reasons.
Tenko also had a strange allergy on his face, for which he always used to scratch his face. One day Tenko’s sister Hana took Tenko to his father’s office to cheer him up and showed him the pictures of his grandmother.
She told him the truth about his grandmother, that she was a hero, Tenko. Hearing all this, he was fascinated and happily went back to his home and played with his pet dog Mon.
Tenko Awakening the Decay Quirk
Coming back from his father’s office, Tenko started playing with the dog, Mon. He felt an unpleasant twitch on his hands, and he didn’t understand what it was at first, but suddenly, when he picked up the ball and tossed it in the air, the ball automatically disintegrated. This meant that he had activated his Decay Quirk for the first time.
Tenko’s father reached home by that time and was angry that his children went into the office and looked at the pictures of their grandmother. When asked who did this, Hana, being scared, broke down and said that it was Tenko’s idea.
After knowing that, his father started beating Tenko and even mocked the heroes by saying they were selfish. They don’t care about their own family, and all they do is protect others at the price of sacrificing their own family.
Tenko, after that, was sad and was crying outside with his arms around his family dog Mon. But suddenly, his decay quirk awakes again, and with that, he notices that the family dog suddenly crumbled on his hands.
Then comes Hana to apologize to Tenko for her mistakes. She witnessed her brother in horror. Tenko still doesn’t realize what is happening. He thinks that some villain has attacked his family.
After witnessing the dead family dog, Hana tries to run away, but at the same time, when Tenko tries to reach her sister, he mistakenly toucher her, which crumbles her body as well.
Tenko’s mother and grandparents also ran outside to see what was happening, and Tenko ended up killing them as well.
Then Tenko’s father comes and sees what has happened, and after witnessing all his family members dead in anger, he hit Tenko with a cane.
This was the first time Tenko had felt the guilt that his father had for him. He becomes furious and attacks his father with full intent to kill and screams in rage, and second, we witness his decay quirk destroyed the house and his whole family dead.
What Happens to Himiko and Twice in Episode 23?
We witnessed that Himiko was unconscious after her battle against Curious, and Twice planned to save her life in the previous episode.
So in Episode 23, we witness Twice trying to generate clones of Himiko to give her the blood transfusion.
But he was struggling to create the clones, so Jin Bubaigawara helps Twice and creates a clone of Himiko, and Twice tries to protect her until she is safe.
