It's weird to say, but I've never seen a story actually tell me the reason a hero wears a cape. Not only did they manage to deliver a fairly badass chapter for Tintin, they had him actually fight against the will of Edna Mode as he tells us that heroes should wear capes! Pixar, we await your response!
|Now THAT is worth a salute.|
Overhaul then activates his Quirk, and the entire ground becomes rubble then reforms into spikes, as his Quirk appears to be the power to disassemble and reassemble everything he touches. Mirio's own Quirk allows him to pass through the spikes unharmed, but he's angry because Overhaul nearly harmed Eri.
|Don't ever make this a video game. Escort missions are the worst.|
Mirio comes up with a plan and hides Eri in his cape, using it as a distraction so he can go under the floor and uppercut Kurono. Overhaul's Quirk gets in the way however, and Kurono escapes the attack but the gun skids across the floor. Overhaul is impressed by Mirio but notices Eri is alone for the moment, so chooses to attack her. Mirio appears behind him and smashes his fucking face in!
|Goddamn, that is cathartic!|
As the flashback ends, we see Nemoto from last week struggling to get back up because of how much faith and trust he had in his master Overhaul. Nemeto crawls into the battlefield and is thrown bullets by Overhaul, aiming the Quirk-nullifying gun at Mirio.
Opinion: Oh, I'm scared he's going to die.
It has to be said that Mirio is surprisingly engaging to me. When I first saw him, I expected him to either reveal to be a traitor or, even worse, a bland shell that is full of perfection and privilege. However, he has proven to be fun, strong and endearing thanks to how much effort he puts into every action. Do I think he's about to fall at the hands of Overhaul? Absolutely. I'm expecting a tragic end to this arc, and Mirio is at the centre of it.
|Damn it, more rubble pictures?! I thought after Irinaka, we'd be done with that.|
Oh and capes are awesome.
