Episode 21 (episode 134 of entire series): “The Lovely Lady Nagant”
Lady Nagant is one of the “Datsugoku” villains working under All For One (AFO), and she’s got her sights set on Deku. She pursues him with two Quirks: “Rifle”, which allows her to fire at targets even at a range of 3km, and “Air Walk”, a Quirk given to her by AFO which allows her to literally walk on air. She pursues him with two Quirks: “Rifle”, which allows her to fire at targets even at a range of 3km, and “Air Walk”, a Quirk given to her by AFO which allows her to do exactly what the name suggests. She was once a top-class hero in every sense of the word, and was even secretly active in carrying out missions to protect the public from harm. Due to a certain incident, however, she was shut away in Tartarus, a top-security prison for dangerous villains despite her former status as a Pro Hero. How will Deku handle such a dangerous opponent who fights from the shadows…?!
Alongside the broadcast, comments from Atsumi Tanezaki (voice of Lady Nagant) have been received!
“I found everything about Lady Nagant so interesting: her strength, her past, and just how cool she is overall. I could really sympathize with her reasoning for why she does what she does, and I did my best to convey all of the complicated feelings and motivations raging inside her. I hope all the viewers will feel that in my performance. Deku-kun, Daiki Yamashita and I all did our absolute best together to tell a great story, so I’d be really happy if everyone enjoyed it.”

Comic sales have surpassed 85 million copies worldwide! TV anime My Hero Academia is based on the popular comic by Kohei Horikoshi and is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump (published by Shueisha). The story is set in a world where roughly 80% of the total population possesses some sort of superpower known as a “Quirk”. Izuku Midoriya “Deku” and his classmates at the U.A. High School strive to become heroes who protect society and individuals from accidents, disasters, and villain criminals who would abuse their Quirks. This is the story of their growth, battles and friendships!
Deku and the others enter into the spring of their 2nd year at U.A. High School. Endeavor and the other heroes face off against a powerful band of villains led by Tomura Shigaraki in a conflict best described as all-out war. As the host of the Quirk One For All, Deku battles against Shigaraki, who has become terrifyingly powerful through advanced surgery. The terrible fight leaves them both gravely injured, and Shigaraki’s retreat seems to mark the end of the war. However, the devastation left by the conflict combined with Dabi’s confession that he is in fact the son of Endeavor, Toya Todoroki, creates public distrust toward the heroes. Additionally, a great many villains escape from prison with All For One’s help, and they wreak further havoc upon society. As the current host of the Quirk One For All, Deku’s sense of duty compels him to leave U.A. High School in order to not endanger those around him. He leaves a letter for his classmates, and then…
Deku’s one-man war begins!
