Template:Chapter What I Can Do For Now (今 僕に 出来る こと を, Ima Boku ni Dekiru Koto wo) is the sixth chapter of Kōhei Horikoshi's Boku no Hero Academia.


The Quirk Apprehension Test begins with the students of Class 1-A competing in a series of tests such as the 50 metre dash, the Grip Strength Test, the Standing Long Jump, the Sustained Sideways Jump and the final test the Pitch. In the last test, Izuku tries his pitch using his One For All Quirk, but for some reason as he throws the ball his Quirk fails. Shouta reveals that he erased his Quirk, leading to Izuku to realize that he is the Erasing Hero "Eraserhead". Shouta explains that his 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" won't help him become a hero if his power causes him to be rescued by others. Shouta decides to give Izuku a second chance. Taking Shouta's advise 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 homeroom teacher that he can still move (and in the process proved Shouta wrong that his power would cause him to be rescued by others), impressing Shouta.
