What are My Hero Academia fillers about?
This part includes big spoilers for four My Hero Academia filler episodes. You can read them if you don’t want to or don’t have time to watch them yourself
In this episode of My Hero Academia, Tomura and Kurogiri watch a summer broadcast on All Might, and Tomura leaves the hideout with a plan to create a world without All Might. Meanwhile, Izuku trains in his apartment and is interrupted by Denki and Minoru, who ask him to train with them at the pool.
They overhear the girls talking about using the pool and invite Izuku so they can see the girls in bikinis, but Izuku invites all the boys for endurance training. The boys use their quirks to reach the other end of the pool, and the episode ends with Shota and Vlad King discussing the location change of the training camp while Tomura plans a “new game.”
Shoto Todoroki is engaged in a fight with ten students from Seijin High School who aim to neutralize both his ice and fire powers with their own unique Quirks. Despite being outnumbered, Shoto manages to outsmart and defeat his opponents by creating an explosion that incapacitates them, freezing them, and then tagging their weak points.
Meanwhile, Saiko Intelli and her classmates set a trap for Class 1-A students and manage to seal off Kyoka and Mezo’s Quirks which are good for detecting people. However, Momo Yaoyorozu comes up with a high-risk plan to amplify Kyoka’s Quirk using a large amp and succeeds in defeating Saiko and her allies. Lastly, Katsuki Bakugo, Eijiro Kirishima, and Denki Kaminari are confronted by Seiji Shishikura, a Shiketsu student who attacks Katsuki with his Quirk, but Eijiro jumps in the way and gets transformed into a lump of flesh.
The Scoop on U.A. Class 1-A
Juko News wants to cover the story of All Might’s retirement, but the Editor-in-Chief is after a scoop and wants to find out who All Might’s successor is. Freelance Journalist, Taneo Tokuda, arrives to help with the story and believes that All Might’s last words are a message to his successor. Taneo believes that All Might’s successor is Izuku Midoriya from Class 1-A. He interviews Class 1-A for the newspaper, recording their daily lives and narrowing down the possible candidates for All Might’s successor.
Taneo meets with Izuku and learns about his past and his role as All Might’s successor, but decides not to write the story out of respect for Izuku and admiration for All Might. Instead, Taneo gives Juko News a different scoop about All Might eating meat buns. Meanwhile, Twice is driving Overhaul to the League of Villains.
Special Episode: Save the World With Love!
In a pre-show screening, Izuku and All Might interrupt their licensing exam to share a story about saving the world with love. All Might reminisce about his early days training in America with his friend David Shield while watching a special on TV with Midnight and Cementoss. Shota teaches a special class to a small group of students, including Izuku, Katsuki, Shoto, Tenya, Ochaco, and Tsuyu, where they must capture a hypothetical villain. The students investigate a jewelry store with unknown villains and hostages and must resolve the incident on their own with guidance from special instructors.
Long Time No See, Selkie
On their first day of Hero Work Studies, Izuku, Katsuki, and Shoto wonder how Ochaco is doing at Ryukyu’s agency. Ochaco shows off her new hero costume to her colleagues but dodges Nejire’s question about why she upgraded it. Ryukyu hosts a welcoming party for the students before they investigate the Verize Islands with the Selkie agency.
During the mission, the heroes discover smugglers and successfully stop them from trafficking illegal drugs. Uravity plays a key role in stopping a cargo plane carrying chemicals, and the heroes congratulate themselves on their success.
Should you skip My Hero Academia fillers?
It’s up to personal preference whether you want to skip the filler episodes in My Hero Academia. Fillers are episodes that are not based on the original manga storyline but rather created to extend the anime series. Considering that My Hero Academia has an extremely low percentage of fillers, it’s really not that of an issue watching them all.
We always recommend that you check out filler just in case they contain character development or world-building information, but ultimately, it’s your choice and whether you prefer straying from the original storyline too much.
