Tomura Shigaraki: Distortion ( () (がら) () (とむら) Distortion (ディストーション) Shigaraki Tomura: Disutōshon?) is the two hundred twenty-second chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


Tomura begins to answer Daruma's question of what he has to show him. He starts by saying that he doesn't remember much of his life before meeting master and Daruma.

Tenko's pain.

Flashbacks are shown of Tomura using his Quirk on his family. In the flashbacks, All For One encounters a homeless young Tomura. All For One calls out to Tomura, by his real name, Tenko, saying it must have hurt that no came to save him, despite his hopes to be saved. All For One embraces a crying Tenko while giving the question, 'who decided to make the world this way?'

He takes Tenko home, declaring that from now on, he will be his master. Daruma enters with the remains of Tenko's family (all hands), noting that Tenko's Quirk is rare and has never been seen before. The memories of his family and his frustrations at what happened compel Tenko to become violently sick and in shock. Daruma questions whether All For One should modify Tenko. All For One replies no, and that he will teach him how to take his feelings and frustrations, and give them purpose.

Back at Daruma's laboratory, Tomura confesses that he felt empty before meeting All For One. He also confesses that his hands make him feel both nauseous and at peace, yet his heart feels heavy, which causes his rage. He explains that it's this juxtaposition of feelings that makes him hate everything and want to destroy everything. Tomura says that he will show Daruma heaven and hell if he will help.

"Why not just destroy everything?"

Daruma responds that it's a childish dream but is impressed by how serious Tomura is in his dream. Daruma agrees nonetheless. Mr. Compress notes how easy it was to convince the doctor while Himiko Toga questions if destroying everything includes what she loves. Tomura replies that they should get what they want as well which gives the other members relief.

Daruma admits that the plan was to always help, but he wanted to see Tomura's development. He also admits that he cannot help until they get Gigantomachia to submit. Dabi interrupts saying he will not go back to fight Gigantomachia, plus he has a good potential ally waiting. Daruma interjects, saying that Dabi can stay back to help him test out his High-End Nomus. Daruma sends the remaining League of Villains members back to Gigantomachia, at Tomura's request, using Johnny.

A resolved Tomura proclaims to Gigantomachia that the 'future king' has returned. Intrigued, Gigantomachia replies that a king should inspire dread, be admired, and be strong. The second confrontation starts.

Meanwhile, in what was the base of Shie Hassaikai, the Meta Liberation Army leaves Giran's scarf and a severed finger.
