From the very beginning, ‘My Hero Academia’ season 4 was off to promising start but many fans of the series were a little disappointed with its slow burn of a plot that emphasized a bit too much on character development. But now, it looks like all that development is starting to pay off.
The season has finally reached one of its best arcs and we’ll soon get to watch one of the most anticipated fight scenes of the anime. If you have been following Deku’s journey all this while, you certainly don’t want to miss out on the next episode. So here is everything you need to know about Episode 12 of ‘My Hero Academia’ season 4.

My Hero Academia Season 4 Episode 13 Spoilers: What to Expect?
In episode 12, just when Overhaul almost destroys Togata, Deku and Nighteye step in to save him. While Nighteye stays close to Togata and Eri to protect them, Deku attacks Overhaul. At first, Deku’s speed and power remain unmatchable for Overhaul, but then he unleashes his true strength and overpowers him. That’s when Nighteye decides to take over and asks Deku to get Eri and Togata out of there. Deku follows his orders and just when he’s about to take the two of there, he realizes that Nighteye has no intention of surviving in the battle and is willing to give up on his life. Apparently, Nighteye had already seen the outcome of the battle using his foresight and had always known that he’ll have to sacrifice himself to help Eri get away.
But Deku does not give up and gets back to fighting Overhaul, while Togata leads Eri out of there. Just like Nighteye, even Deku fails to harm Overhaul in any way and that’s when even Eri realizes that to save everyone else from dying, she’ll have to go back to him. Still believing that she’s a curse to the ones around her, Eri breaks from Togata’s hold and decides to go back to Overhaul. Overhaul manipulates her even further and reminds her how she is only capable of harming the people around her. But just when she’s about to go back to him, the ceiling breaks loose and it looks like another hero has arrived to save the day.
In the next episode, titled “Infinite 100%”, we can be pretty certain that Eri is no way going back to Overhaul again. As much as she would want to risk her own life and save the heroes, there is no way Deku will let her go back to him again. Of course, even Togata wants the same, but considering how weak he is after his battle against Overhaul, he’ll probably stay out of the whole showdown for now. Considering the events of the previous episode, even Nighteye seems to be out of luck, so we won’t be seeing much of him against Overhaul. So, in the end, it’ll all come down to Deku now to save Eri and destroy Overhaul. Which will bring us the to the battle we’ve all been waiting for—Deku vs. Overhaul.
The events of episode 12 unfolded at a very quick pace because of its lack of any major plot points. The next episode, for the most part, will again follow a similar format as it is pretty obvious that it will only revolve around the action between the heroes and Overhaul. Moreover, in episode 12, it is also revealed that Toga and Twice have something bigger planned for Overhaul and are determined to seek revenge from him. But that does not really mean that they’re supporting the heroes. So their overall plan, though it still remains to be a mystery, will have some major role to play in the conclusion of this battle. In the preview for the next episode, Deku also mentions that he’ll go beyond his full potential to beat Overhaul. Deku was being overshadowed by all the heroes for quite some time now, but in the next episode, we’ll finally get to see him in the limelight, proving that he very well deserves to be All Might’s successor.
