My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125 – Quick Summary

In My Hero Academia Season 6 episode 125, “Threads of Hope,” Tsunagu Hakamada/Best Jeanist arrived, much to the consternation of Dabi and the League of Villains. With Tomura Shigaraki having trouble regenerating, Gigantomachia began to lose strength. But those two bits of good news couldn’t hide the fact that Dabi was still at full strength, and Enji Todoroki/Endeavor remained immobile, his will shattered by his son’s revelations. Can even Best Jeanist turn things around? And will Izuku Midoriya ever be able to use any of his limbs again – much less in this fight?

Favorite Quote from My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125: Best Jeanist can get away with corny lines

Someone, Best Jeanist made the quote work! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Generally speaking, I don’t like corny dialogue. It can feel stilted. It can knock me out of my suspension of disbelief. But if a character is given to saying corny things because that’s just who they are, then it can be fantastic.

We had one of those frantically cliched, yet stirring quotes in this episode.

Best Jeanist had arrived. With fabulous style, he jumped out of the troop plane. And wow, did they animate the daylights out of that sequence or what (starting around 03:45)? As he fell from the sky, the battered heroes looked up, and he said words he no doubt intended to encourage them. Among those words was this quote (04:37): “We will spin together the threads of hope!”

If anyone else had said that, I would have rolled my eyes. But when it’s Best Jeanist? It just worked!

Favorite Moment from My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125: Hey, Lemillion's back!

Hey, look who’s back! Just in time, too! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Back when Eri’s arc ended, I remember reading conjecture that she might be able to heal heroes who had been survived being shot with deleter rounds. And I just told you everything you need to figure out my favorite moment from this episode!

We actually caught a glimpse of this hero around 09:12 when he saved Moe Kamiji/Burnin as a Nomu tried to ambush her from behind. You could barely see him in the upper left corner. Just in case you missed it, the camera showed you the cape around 09:17.

Then came the moment when it looked darkest for our heroes. Everyone, from Best Jeanist to Katsuki Bakugou to Shouto Todoroki were about to get trashed. Deku couldn’t even move.

And he showed up.

His face became visible as he came up through the ground. Who am I talking about? Who showed up in the nick of time?

Mirio Toogata/Lemillion, that’s who (11:19)!

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 125: Eri was happy to have helped

Eri was happy to help Mirio. Not only is she just a nice person, but he gave her plenty of support, too. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

It turns out that Eri now has enough control over her power that she could rewind Mirio’s body to a point before he lost his Quirk. And now, though he’s a little rusty, he’s more or less at full power. And just in time, too! Things were looking bad for our heroes!

Though to be honest, things looked pretty bad again by the end! Still, it was great to see Lemillion back in the fight.

What did you think of Deku naming a new move “Blackwhip, Froppy Style?” What were your favorite moments? Feel free to let me know in the comments!

  1. The tables have been turned but there’s time for one more major twist!

    Eris can turn back anyone to a pre-damaged state. Maybe even All-Might. Possibly all of devastated Japan. It is kind of an ultimate quirk.

Please let me know what you think!
