What I Can Do for Now ( (いま) (ぼく) () () ることを Ima Boku ni Dekiru Koto o?) is the sixth chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


The Quirk Apprehension Test begins with the students of Class 1-A competing in a series of tests such as the 50-Meter Dash, the Grip Strength Test, the Standing Long Jump, the Sustained Sideways Jump, and the final test, the Pitch.

Izuku Midoriya becomes more and more desperate throughout the tests so, in the last test, he tries his pitch using One For All, but for some reason, as he throws the ball his Quirk fails. Shota Aizawa reveals that he erased Izuku's Quirk, leading Izuku to realize that Shota is the Erasure Hero: Eraser Head. The other students note they have not heard of him but remark on his amazing power. Shota explains that Izuku's Quirk has a major drawback and says that nobody will come to his aid when he is crippled. He continues to say that his "power" will not help him become a hero if his power causes him to be rescued by others. Shota decides to give Izuku a second chance.

Izuku's resolve impresses Shota.

Taking Shota's advice into account, Izuku throws his pitch but at the last second, he concentrates One For All through his fingertip, which causes the ball to fly high into the air, giving Izuku a high score. Izuku then says to his teacher that he can still move (and in the process proves Shota wrong that his power would cause him to be rescued by others), impressing Shota.
