My Hero Academia Season 6 will adapt the Paranormal Liberation War Arc of Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga, which centers on an exciting all-out war between heroes and villains.
What is the plot of the Paranormal Liberation War Arc?
The Paranormal Liberation War is a hero operation where the Hero Public Safety Commission and Police Force ask heroes and the Hero Course Trainees to take down the Paranormal Liberation Front.
After the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army joined forces and formed the Paranormal Liberation Front, Deku’s nemesis – Tomura Shigaraki contacts Dr. Kyudai Garaki and asks him for even more power, and the doctor agrees to grant him the power he desires. Dr. Garaki warns Shigaraki that the medical process will last four months where he will be in hellish agony, but if he survives he will gain a power greater than his master’s.
From the key visual that was released, we can deduce that Shigarki will indeed survive the operation, but his hair has turned completely white!
Shigaraki’s followers organize their forces for when Shigarki will make his move within four months. Shigaraki goes to Dr. Garaki’s lab to undergo the special operation that will not only grant him All For One, his master’s Quirk but also a perfected and more suitable body to control the enormous power.
Meanwhile, the Hero Public Safety Commission and the Police Force do what they can in preparation for this imminent threat. Thanks to Eraser Head and Present Mic, Detective Naomasa Tsukauchi is able to obtain information about the League of Villains from the captured Nomu Kurogiri. The hero Hawks continues to work as a spy for the Commission within the MLA, and gathers important information about the Paranormal Liberation Front and when they plan to attack.
The Commission puts together all of the information gathered and discovers who the main leaders of the Paranormal Liberation Front are, how many heroes are loyal to the villain organization, the location of their hideouts, and eventually even Shigaraki’s location. Shigaraki is hidden in a secret area in Jaku General Hospital.
Dr. Garaki happens to be the founder and current board chairman of the hospital. He’s an ally of All For One, and is the mastermind behind the creation of the Nomus.
The Commission decides they want to strike first and organize a large assault force made up of heroes and police to take down the Paranormal Liberation Front. The planned attack will begin by the end of March, one month before Shigaraki’s operation ends
Who will be participating in the attack on the villains?
The assault force is divided into three teams:
- The Hospital Raid Team – led by Endeavor is in charge of attacking Jaku General Hospital in order to stop Nomu production and find out where Tomura Shigaraki is. One group will concentrate on evacuating visitors, staff and inmates while a second group will put an end to the Nomu production and arrest Shigaraki and Dr. Garaki.
- The Villa Raid Team – their mission is to attack the Gunga Mountain Villa (the headquarters of the Paranormal Liberation Front) and arrest its members. The Villa Raid Team also has a smaller team working as the rearguard – their job is to catch any villain that slips past the front line. The rearguard is made up of trainee heroes.
- Evacuation Team – led by Burnin and made up of trainee heroes their mission is to evacuate the inhabitants of Jaku City, which is located close to the hospital, and move them to safety.
Meanwhile, heroes are deployed in different cities to capture traitorous heroes that have allied with the Paranormal Liberation Front, although these heroes aren’t a part of the assault force. The Commission invites Rikiya Yotsubashi – one of the main lieutenants of the PLF to headquarters pretending to want a joint venture into support items but really wanting to arrest him.
