My Hero Academia 392: Is Ochako and Deku’s new Heroism all about rehabilitating the villains?

Ochako and Deku, both possess a strong sense of heroism in the anime and manga series My Hero Academia. Their preference for talking to villains and understanding them instead of simply putting them in jail can be attributed to their underlying beliefs and values as heroes. While most heroes tend to unleash retributive punishment to villains, our protagonists seem to have a different way altogether.

My Hero Academia Chapter 392 briefed

Chapter 391 saw Toga overpowering the heroes with her clones. Thus, Ochako tried to reason with her and make her understand why she could not use Dabi and Shigaraki’s powers.

However, Himiko did not like Ochako’s approach, which angered her enough to show her true form under Twice’s form. However, Uraraka says that what’s stopping Toga from using Twice’s power to its fullest is that she’s mixed her feelings with murderous intent. Needless to say, this angered Toga even more who proceed to spite Uraraka for her easy childhood, which leads her to see the apparent good in people.

In the spoilers of Chapter 392, we see that Asui starts talking about how she, too, believed in the clear-cut binary of heroes being good and villains being evil before she saw Ochaco trying to understand and reach out to Toga.

She believes that even if Ochako is late, she is trying, and Toga should give her a chance. It’s like talking to a wall at this point as Toga is hellbent on finishing what she started, as she lands a fatal blow to Ochako, despite the latter’s attempt to talk her over.

They recognize that villains are not simply one-dimensional evil beings but individuals who have their own motivations and struggles.

They believe in the power of empathy and seek to understand the reasons behind a villain’s actions, hoping to find common ground or a way to address their underlying issues. They understand that resolving conflicts and changing people’s hearts requires a deeper understanding of their perspectives and experiences.

Rather than seeking pure retribution, Ochako and Deku hold onto the idea of rehabilitation and redemption. They believe in the potential for villains to change, grow, and find a path to redemption.

By engaging in dialogue and trying to reach the villains on a personal level, they aim to help them confront their wrongdoings and inspire them to choose a different path. They prioritize the opportunity for villains to turn their lives around and contribute positively to society.

  • They understand that simply imprisoning villains may not address the root causes of their actions.
  • By actively seeking to understand their motivations and addressing their underlying issues, they hope to prevent future conflicts and reduce the likelihood of villains resurfacing.
  • Their approach focuses on long-term solutions rather than temporary fixes, aiming to create a society where individuals are guided toward making positive choices.

Their approach also challenges society’s black-and-white view of heroes and villains. They recognize that the line between good and evil can be blurred and that people are complex beings with their own circumstances. By engaging with villains, they aim to break the cycle of violence and foster a more empathetic and understanding society. You can clearly see that if you watch the anime here.

Their actions are driven by their belief in the potential for change and the desire to create a world where heroism goes beyond defeating villains but also involves inspiring others and fostering growth and understanding.
