My Hero Academia season 7 episode 1 recap

Episode 1 opened with Izuku Midoriya, aka Deku, having a flashback. Ochaco Uraraka's words moved the public as Deku was accepted back into the U.A. He had a responsibility to put a stop to the chaos and possibly save Shigaraki, and he wasn't alone as he was backed by his friends.

Witnessing the mayhem in Japan, a squad from the United States decides to take action. Along with them, flying to Japan, is America's No. 1 Hero, Star and Stripe. In Japan, en route to welcoming her are Endeavor, Best Jeanist, and Hawks. But a certain Shigaraki is already present in Japanese airspace to receive her.

The scene then shifts to AFO, in a cave, with Spinner there as well. The former seems pleased with his work in creating havoc in Japan. The authorities have been too busy to notice his movement. But acquiring One For All (OFA) isn't his only goal. AFO is aware of Star and Stripe wanting to help out since it was All Might who requested it.

So, with that in mind, he aims to gamble and attempt to take her Quirk, New Order. Simultaneously, he asks Spinner to stand beside Shigaraki for the forthcoming battles and be the face of the Heteromorph Revolution. Back in the skies, Star and Stripe and Shigaraki engage in a duel.

Her Quirk, New Order, is glimpsed and soon analyzed by the Shigaraki. New Order permits the American Hero to impose rules on anything she touches and utters the name of. However, when she tries to restrain Shigaraki, it doesn't work as he himself doesn't know what he is - Shigaraki, AFO, or Tenko Shimura.

The episode ended on a high with Star and Stripe using New Order to fashion a figure of herself out of air 1000 times her size. With her, she landed two powerful blows on Shigaraki before striking him with the lasers from the aircraft. She had also requested her commander back in America for hyper-powered missiles, determined to wipe out Shigaraki then and there.


What to expect from My Hero Academia season 7 episode 2?

Episode 1 adapted chapters 329 to 331, a major bit of the Star and Stripe vs Shigaraki fight. Given this pacing, My Hero Academia season 7 episode 2 will likely adapt the next 3 chapters, i.e., 332 to 334. It is expected to delve a little into the American hero's backstory before switching to the present.

An explosive attack on Shigaraki will prove useless, as the villain showcases why he has been so tough to take down. Amidst all the firepower, Shigaraki will get a touch in on Star and Stripe and steal her Quirk. But it looks like New Order might have a little detail that is less known.
