My Hero Academia Chapter 420 recap

My Hero Academia Chapter 420 is titled From Aizawa. The chapter opens with Aizawa, Present Mic, and Kurogiri seemingly stranded on a small island near Japan's coast. Mic, overwhelmed by grief and anger over Shirakumo's desecrated body, initially attempts to attack Kurogiri. However, his demeanor changes upon noticing tears streaming down Kurogiri's face.

Mic and Aizawa reflect on the events at Tartarus, acknowledging the unlikely blend of Shirakumo's essence with Kurogiri's Nomu form. As they converse, Kurogiri unexpectedly rises and utters Mic's real name, hinting at a resurgence of Shirakumo's consciousness.

Meanwhile, Aizawa contacts Tsukauchi to inquire about Monoma's ability to fight, only to discover that he remains incapacitated. Determined to gather reinforcements for Deku's battle, Aizawa swiftly moves to the U.A. shelter, recruiting willing heroes to aid in the fight against All For One.

My Hero Academia Chapter 420 then shifts to the Takoba arena, where Class 1-A and Class 1-B students engage in combat against the formidable villain, Gashly. Amidst the chaos, the chapter transitions back to the present, revealing multiple Warp Gates around All For One's location.

As Aizawa reaches Deku, he inquires about the duration since Deku lost his arms, preparing to administer Eri's horn for regeneration. In a brief flashback, Eri is shown sacrificing a part of herself to aid in the battle, symbolizing her unwavering determination to contribute despite being unable to participate directly.


Aizawa pierces Deku with Eri's horn, initiating the process of arm regeneration. My Hero Academia Chapter 420 concludes with a dramatic entrance of U.A. students and heroes, including Kaminari, Yaoyorozu, Mineta, Koda, and Shoji, signaling a unified front against All For One's tyranny.
