At Eri's hospital, Izuku Midoriya and Mirio Togata are finally able to see Eri. Back in the supplementary lessons room, Shota Aizawa tells Izuku that Eri has requested to see him and Mirio. As Izuku and Mirio enter Eri's room, one of the nurses ask if it is safe for them to be around Eri, to which the doctor states that Eri's energy level is safe and thus her Quirk will not spiral out of control.
Izuku apologizes to Eri for being unable to see her earlier while Mirio gifts her a basket of fruits. Even though he saved her, Eri does not know Izuku's name, which surprises Izuku but informs her anyway. Eri apologizes to them for all the trouble for her sake; however, she is unaware that Sir Nighteye has passed away. Eri is guilty that Mirio lost his Quirk because of her, but Mirio tells Eri that she is not to blame and everyone is glad that she is safe, which comforts Eri. Eri tries to smile but is not able to do so. Izuku is aware that Eri has not recovered from her psychological abuse from Kai Chisaki.
Suddenly, Izuku has an idea and asks Shota if Eri can come to the School Festival. Mirio explains to Eri that the School Festival is an occasion that U.A. High School hosts where there will be lots of events on display where people can enjoy themselves while tasting delicious food such as candied apples, which catches Eri's attention. As Shota phones Nezu to get his approval, Izuku asks Eri about his idea; Eri wants to get to know the people who saved her and agrees to go to the School Festival.
At the Police Force office, Kenji Tsuragamae watches a video of a new villain robbing a store; some Heroes try to stop him but he easily defeats them. The new villain reveals himself to be Gentle Criminal, a fancy and lavish-style villain and tells his subordinate, La Brava that they will be going. Gentle wishes for his name to be etched in history. On top of a building, La Brava informs Gentle that their video of the store robbery isn't getting a lot of views. Gentle sees that he will have to accomplish a lot more if he wants people to start taking notice of him. While pouring tea, Gentle tells La Brava that he is searching for something that will make him extraordinary.
