There’s a high chance that Boku no Hero Academia chapter 204 is going to see the conclusion of the current battle between the classes 1A and 1B. However, how it’s going to happen, and which class will become the victors is still to be seen. But we can be certain of one fact, and that is, Iida will play a major role in the battle!
We saw in chapter 203 that Tetsutetsu’s gambit worked as he went on a rampage, but it wasn’t just mindless rampage as his teammates were able to take advantage of the situation and turn the tides of the battle in their favor. Keeping Tetsutetsu aside for a minute, we can talk about how Honenuki was able to complete incapacitate the class 1A easily because of his quirk. His quirk allows him to soften anything he touches, but only inanimate objects and not living beings, and he used it wisely to not only soften Todoroki’s ice attack but also the ground and various other platforms in the surrounding area to trap Ojiro as well as Iida. Meanwhile, Kaibara took on Ojiro with his quirk “Gyrate” that allows him to rotate any part of his body like a drill.
Pony Tsunotori took advantage of the commotion and used her quirk to send horns flying at Shoji and injuring him and while Todoroki was distracted by this, Tetsutetsu broke through his ice barrier and took him on in a hand-to-hand brawl.
Boku no Hero Academia Chapter 204 Spoilers
I have to admit that things don’t look really good for Class 1A as the Class 1B team has completely overwhelmed their attacks by using their quirks in a proper way. However, the battle isn’t over yet as the conclusion showed us that Iida showed us a glimpse of his power-up before leaving us hanging and waiting for the next chapter!
In the past, Iida’s “Recipro Burst” attack came with a time limit as it disabled his engines for a short period of time and Honenuki tells him about it as well. That’s when Iida gives us an idea that he overcame that limitation as he remarks that he never had a time limit. This may be the fruits of his training as he might have unlocked new powers, or might have gotten better used to his quirk that he can now use his engines for longer periods of time without any limitations.
We are going to see his “Recipro Turbo” in action for the first time in the story in the upcoming chapter and it will likely be Honenuki vs. Iida which is an interesting matchup. Honenuki can soften anything he touches, which means he can soften the ground and take away Iida’s mobility, so it would be interesting to see how Iida’s going to take down the foe or give a hand to his teammates and turn the tides of battle.
It’s not that Iida’s only the one who’s going to be at the center of the story because Todoroki’s going to get serious as well. He made a mistake of using ice instead of fire during his opening salvo, but he might not make the same mistake again. Moreover, there’s a chance that he perfected the attack that Endeavor wanted to teach him, as shown in the flashback scene, and he might use it for the very first time in the match.
The main obstacles for Class 1A in winning the match are Honenuki’s quirk along with his battle tactics and Tetsutetsu and his brute strength. If Iida and Todoroki are able to take them both down, then their victory will be all but assured. And there’s a high chance that Class 1A will become victorious in this battle!
