The preview images of the upcoming My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 7 tease the long-awaited battle between Shoto and Dabi.

My Hero Academia anime finally entered the Final War Arc in Season 7. It’s the longest and most important arc of the series, given it’s also the final one. So, every fight in the following episodes will be more intense and more significant to the story.

One fight fans have been anticipating for a long time is between estranged brothers Shoto and Dabi, aka Toya Todoroki. Shoto is an aspiring hero while Dabi is a mass-murderer and a member of the League of Villains. Not just that, but he’s also holding grudges against his family, particularly Endeavor and Shoto. 

Dabi’s identity was an open secret in My Hero Academia for a long time. But it was finally confirmed during the Paranormal Liberation Arc. In a countrywide broadcast, the villain revealed he’s Endeavor’s son and detailed the horrible trauma he received from his father.

Dabi also carries a deep grudge against Shoto who was the perfect child Endeavor craved. And though Shoto was also abused and traumatized by the current number one hero, Dabi has no sympathy for him, only hatred.

So, Shoto and his fight in My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 7 is guaranteed to be an emotionally charged battle. This clash will also play a significant role in both their character arcs. 

Aside from this, the upcoming episode will also feature important scenes with Deku, Ochako, and Toga Himiko, and show more of Shigaraki’s rampage. Episode 7 is titled ‘Inflation’ and will be released on June 15, 2024, on Crunchyroll.
