Izuku creates One For All: Full Cowl.

Gran Torino sleeps the rest of the day away. That night, Izuku tries to train himself by using One For All to scale an alleyway.

Gran Torino trains Izuku to use One For All: Full Cowl. Unbeknownst to Izuku, he manages to graze Gran Torino in their rematch. They continue training after breakfast until Gran Torino decides to move on to the next step of training. [5]

On the third day, Gran Torino decides to switch up the training in order to prevent Izuku from developing weird habits from their sparring. He makes Izuku change into his hero costume and tells him that they're going to fight real villains. Gran Torino aims to have Izuku fight different types of villains to gain more experience.

Izuku is nervous about using his newfound powers, but Gran Torino makes him enter a taxi and they ride to the train station. They plan to travel towards Shinjuku via the bullet train in order to reach Shibuya. Gran Torino believes there will be plenty of skirmishes in a populated area like Shibuya. Izuku is distracted by the thought of passing Tenya in Hosu. They board the bullet train and near Hosu station late at night. Their trip is derailed when the passengers notice a building explode. Then suddenly a Nomu bursts through the train with a defeated Hero in tow. Gran Torino tackles the Nomu off the train and into a nearby building. Izuku exits the train and uses his training to traverse the city, searching for his mentor. [6]

Izuku uses his training to eventually located Tenya and saves him from the Hero Killer: Stain. Izuku helps defeat the Hero Killer alongside Tenya and Shoto. Izuku is taken to the hospital for treatment to his injuries and is pardoned attacking Stain with his Quirk by the Police Chief. [7]

"I'm Deku!"

Izuku's recovery takes up the remainder of the week for Izuku's training. He thanks Gran Torino for helping him gain a major step in mastering One For All. Gran Torino claims he hardly taught Izuku anything. Izuku argues that his training helped him combat the Hero Killer, but Gran Torino says that's only because Stain held back.

Gran Torino goes on to scold Izuku for going past his 5% limit. Izuku then asks Gran Torino about why he's not a popular hero. Gran Torino reveals he was never interested in being a Pro and All Might can explain why. Prior to departing, Gran Torino returns to his senile state and asks Izuku his name. Izuku says Midoriya but Gran Torino claims that isn't right. Izuku realizes the answer Gran Torino has been looking for is that his hero name is "Deku". [8]

Manual and Tenya

Manual warns Tenya about using his Quirk for personal goals.

Manual takes Tenya out to patrol Kyoto. During their walk, Manual stops and asks Tenya if he's hunting the Hero Killer. He knows Tenya wouldn't choose his unpopular agency for any other reasons. Manual warns Tenya not to use his Quirk to pursue personal grudges because it's a serious crime. Tenya thanks Manual, but silently vows to continue his hunt because of his burning hatred for Stain. 

That night, the League of Villains attack Hosu using Nomu. Manual directs Tenya to the center of the chaos, but the student notices the Hero Killer in an alleyway and confronts him. [6] Stain nearly kills Tenya. Tenya's only saved by the arrival of his classmates Izuku and Shoto. They help Tenya realize his foolish actions and together they defeat the Hero Killer.

He wants to teach Katsuki how to present himself as an elegant hero. Katsuki gets restrained by the No.4 hero when they first meet and the latter lectures him.[10]

Best Jeanist styles Katsuki's hair similar to his own. He explains to the young man that he must present himself as a proper hero. This makes Katsuki realize he chose the wrong hero office. [11]Following the Hosu Incident, Best Jeanist tells everyone in his office to remain calm and steadfast despite the horrific attack. Clad in denim jeans, Katsuki mulls over how he wants to go home.[9]

Best Jeanist takes Katsuki out on patrol. Best Jeanist asks him why Heroes need to patrol the streets. Katsuki says it is because they can beat up criminals as soon as they see them. This answer is wrong, and Best Jeanist corrects Katsuki by stating heroes need to make their presence known to civilians. Katsuki is confronted by a few kids and he scares them away with his anger. Best Jeanist watches in disappointment. [12]

Guts and Chivalry

Models in the Making

Momo and Itsuka intern with Uwabami

Momo and Itsuka act as Uwabami's posse.

Uwabami takes on Momo and Itsuka as apprentices because she thinks they're both pretty. When they first meet, she explains heroes and how they're allowed to have side jobs like modeling. Momo believes she's unworthy of being drafted and is willing to take on whatever lessons Uwabami has to other. Itsuka, on the other hand, wishes to participate in more heroic activities.[13]

Momo and Itsuka accompany Uwabami during her interviews and photo shoots. Itsuka feels like the students are her entourage. Momo tries to find the bright side, but Itsuka feels like she's in denial.[14] The two girls are even featured in one of Uwabami's commercials. Just when Momo's morale begins to fall, Uwabami takes them both out on patrol.[9]

While out on patrol, Uwabami is swarmed by a crowd of fans. Uwabami talks to her proteges about keeping up on appearances while the two girls watch in disapproval.[12]

Heroes at Sea

Froppy chooses to train aboard the Okie Mariner, a ship captained by the Pro Hero Selkie. Tsuyu chose the Okie Mariner because she wanted to work somewhere that would match well with her Quirk. 

Tsuyu and Sirius

Sirius tells Froppy about becoming a hero.

On her first day, Tsuyu trains with the other ship-hands by doing push-ups.[10] Froppy spends most of her internship doing tasks to keep the Oki Mariner clean. After she finishes cleaning, Tsuyu talks with Selkie's sidekick, Sirius. Sirius tells Froppy that her initial time with Selkie had her doing similar mundane tasks. Sirius claims that despite this, working alongside Selkie taught her how to be a hero.

Froppy inquires about how Sirius learned this, but Selkie arrives on deck and interrupts. The Oki Mariner receives a request from the coast guard asking them to assist in apprehending smugglers. Froppy joins the mission to track down the smugglers. They find a suspicious ship and Selkie investigates without Froppy, much to the young girl's displeasure. Sirius asks her to trust Selkie. Selkie and a few of his men get captured by the smugglers.

Selkie orders Froppy and Sirius to track down the smugglers without him. The Oki Mariner pins the criminal's ship and Innsmouth reveals himself. He captures Sirius and orders Froppy to surrender. Tsuyu makes the heroic decision to radio for help rather than surrendering. Innsmouth attacks Tsuyu, but she's saved by Selkie.

Father and Son

Shoto interns with Endeavor

Shoto arrives at Endeavor's Hero Agency.

After reuniting with his mother, Shoto puts his differences with his father aside and chooses Endeavor's Agency. He accepts that Endeavor is the No.2 hero and desires to learn from his judgment and instincts. Endeavor is proud of Shoto for choosing to work with him, but Shoto reminds his father that this is a choice all his own.[10]

Endeavor follows the Hero Killer's trail to Hosu. He brings Shoto along in an attempt to capture the Hero Killer.[15] They arrive at a chaotic scene in Hosu and Endeavor leads Shoto towards the center of the incident. Shoto receives an SOS message from Izuku and rushes to his position instead. He tells his father to handle the incident alone and send other pros to Izuku's location. [16]

Shoto arrives in time to help Izuku and Tenya defeat the Hero Killer himself. Afterward, Shoto is taken to the hospital to have his injuries treated. The Police Chief arrives and pardons the boys of their crimes, having used their Quirks illegally to attack Stain. [7]

Shoto leaves the hospital on his fifth day of training before Izuku finishes recovering. He desires to learn all he can from Endeavor. Shoto tells Izuku that even though the news reports say Endeavor defeated Stain, Endeavor will know his son actually did it. Shoto wants to see the look of shame on his father's face.[12]

Birds of a Feather

Fumikage Tokoyami was offered internship with the number 3 pro hero Hawks. However he soon found out how Hawks essentially resolves everything by himself, a statement confirmed by one of Hawks' sidekicks, who told Fumikage that their role is essentially to perform the cleanup work after a rescue. Being relegated to this role caused Fumikage to start doubting his ability as a Hero.

At Hawks' home, Fumikage asked him why he invited him. Hawks initially joked that it was because they are both birds, but then explained that it was only 20% for that reason, and 50% because he wanted to talk to someone from Class 1-A about the League of Villains. Hawks tells Fumikage that he figured he would pick someone from 1-A who could be able to keep up with him, so he picked Fumikage from the top three. Fumikage filled Hawks in on the U.S.J. Incident, but frustration boiled up inside him, and he left the workplace training without having learned anything.[17]

Others

Death Arms works out Kyoka hard in the field. He makes her run during patrol and she barely keeps up with him. Kyoka thinks to herself about much harder her training is compared to school.[10] Later, Kyoka helps Death Arms rescue civilians from a hostage situation. She uses her Quirk to figure out how many hostages were taken. Kyoka escorts them both to safety after Death Arms rushes in.[12]

Mt. Lady keeps Minoru busy with her household chores. She tells him that heroes need to know how to pass the time. Minoru laments and thinks that this isn't the kind of roleplay he wanted.[13]

Aftermath

Following the end of workplace training. Class 1-A and 1-B students return to class. Hanta and Eijiro laugh at Katsuki's Jeanist styled hairdo. Katsuki's hair returns to shape after they make him angry enough.

Ochaco's fighting spirit

Ochaco finds her fighting spirit.

Mina, Kyoka, and Tsuyu talk about their experiences. Mina finds it amazing how Kyoka helped in a hostage situation. They're both highly impressed that Tsuyu helped capture drug smugglers. Tsuyu inquires about Ochaco's training. Enveloped in battle aura, Ochaco states that it was highly enlightening.

Denki states that Ochaco's changed a lot in a week. Having been scarred by Mt. Lady, Minoru argues that all women are the same because they're all evil. Denki says he fawned over a lot at his workplace. The entire class talks to Izuku, Shoto, and Tenya about their experience in Hosu.

They start talking about the Hero Killer and Denki says he was cool. He quickly apologizes to Tenya. Tenya forgives him and explains that Stain's actions were wrong despite his tenacity. Tenya learns from his mistakes and devotes himself to walking the true path of a hero. [18]
