My Hero Academia season 6 episode 18 recap & review: Izuku Midoriya and Tomura Shigaraki

In My Hero Academia season 6 episode 18, Deku comes across his predecessors in the vestige world of One For All, while Endeavor and other top Heroes address the media and public’s questions.


As All Might sits beside an unconscious Deku, he knows and can feel within himself that his successor is having a conversation with his One For All predecessors.

Inside the vestige world of One For All sit all the predecessors who once yielded the quirk, including Yagi, aka All Might, whose consciousnesses is present here in spite of him currently being alive.

They ask Deku if he’s prepared to kill Shigaraki, who they claim is consumed by his hatred and that the consensus among them differs from Deku’s assessment of Shigaraki’s current, buried psyche, which he thinks houses a confused guy who’s calling out for help.

Deku expresses his dissenting views and that he wishes to save Shigaraki in spite of all the terrible deeds he’s done. His predecessors then reveal that it was just a test and that he aced it. They also reveal quite a couple of important things about their quirk, the most important one being that Deku is the last wielder of One For All.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Hawks and Best Jeanist surprise All Might and ask him about One For All. Later, the two heroes and Endeavor hold a press conference where they’re subjected to harsh questions from the journalists.

Meanwhile, they also confess to their allegations and apologize, which shocks the public and anger many, but that’s all they can do right now, along with Endeavor’s resolution that he’ll work to solve the quandary that the villains pose.

My Hero Academia season 6 episode 18 ends with all of the Class 1-A students receiving farewell letters from Midoriya, who reveals that he got his powers from All Might and that he’s leaving UA since his presence there poses a threat to all of them.
