All Might: Let me tell you the truth... My Quirk was handed down to me like a sacred torch.
Text: The great power of a hero...
All Might: And it's your turn to receive it next.
Text: Falls into the hands of a single boy
Izuku: One... For... All...
Izuku: I'm going to take the first step to becoming the very hero I admired.
Text: And so, fate begins to move rapidly forward.
Ochaco: Deku, you kind of give off this vibe of always doing your best. I kind of like that.
Text: In the fight to become a hero...
Katsuki: He's just a pebble on the side of the road...
Text: Determination and will will collide
Izuku: He told me...! He told me that I could become a hero! That's why I'm going to go!
Tenya: So this is the strongest candidate...
Aizawa: You can't become a hero with that level of power.
All Might: Because I felt possibilities in both you and that other kid.
Katsuki: You damn nerd!!
Izuku: Don't you want to win because you're such an amazing person!?
Izuku: SMASH!!
Chiyo: Is the "Symbol of Peace" really all that important?
All Might: If it disappears, the society of superhumans will be tainted by evil.
Izuku: Unfortunately, that's exactly what appeared before us. It was an extremely high level of evil.
Shiragaki: Kill the Symbol of Peace...

The anime's eighth episode aired on Sunday and featured the debut of Kouki Uchiyama as Tomura Shigaraki, the leader of the League of Villains.
