Best Jeanist managed to react quickly and used his Quirk to manipulate the clothes of his fellow Pro Heroes and reeled them backwards, which allowed them to survive Sensei's attack. However, Mount Lady, Tiger and Gang Orca are heavily injured while Best Jeanist himself is also heavily injured but conscious.
