Izuku is slowly learning the true depths of his quirk and viewers who have been with the show since it starts to know just how much the timid little boy from episode 1 has grown. As Izuku attempts to know more about One for All, his interactions with All Might give us more insight about the quirk’s history.
Chapter 257 of the series, titled “Pass It Forward, to Whomever ”, gives us the name of All Might’s predecessor’s quirk: Float. Not much has been revealed about the quirk’s actual ability. However, it is assumed to be a “weak” quirk as Blackwhip’s use is also very limited.
The chapter begins with All Might meeting with Izuku and Bakugo. He shows them a notebook containing the details of the quirks of One for All’s previous holders. The notebook goes as far back as the 4th user of the quirk. The notebook reveals that the 5th user of One for All, Daigoro Banjo a.k.a. Lariat is the person who manifested Blackwhip.
Blackwhip’s strength is minimal and can be used mainly as a support-type quirk because Izuku can use it for only 1 second at a time. All Might, on being questioned by Bakugo, reveals that the next quirk that Izuku will get is Nana Shimura’s Float. Bakugo makes fun of the quirk as he can already launch himself in the air using his explosions. The meeting ends there, and not much is revealed about the nature of Nana Shimura’s quirk.
The chapter also reveals that Eri’s training under Shoto Aizawa a.k.a Eraserhead will begin within the week.
If Izuku can fly using Nana Shimura’s quirk, his fighting mechanics against villains will improve for the better. It is going to be exciting to see this quirk inaction coupled with One for All’s a tremendous strength.
