Overcoming Adversity (困難に打ち勝つ Konnan ni Uchi Katsu?) is the fifth episode of Yuki Yuna is a Hero and is aired in November 6th 2014.

Summary Edit

The Hero Club stands on the defending line of Shinju and it appears that all of the remaining Vertexes are there. As they are preparing to fight, the girls go into transformation. When they start their fight, one vertex was already defeated leading to Togo thinking that "as if it wanted to be attacked" later realizing that it was a trap. Four vertexes later evolve into one increasing the difficulty to defeat them.

Later, all of the heroes were defeated but Fu decided to try and fight and is subdued by the water bubble. This led her to release all of the energy that she has and turned into her Mankai form. Togo, the next one evolved to her Mankai form, destroys one vertex and realizes that one of the vertex is close to the Shinju. Itsuki, the third one to her Mankai form stops the vertex and destroys the soul.

Evolved vertex later made an ominous energetic ball and Fu distracts the vertexes and tells them to start sealing it. Realizing that the soul of the vertex is too big to be destroyed, Yuna and Togo flew up to the soul, with Yuna turning to her Mankai form, the last vertex is finally defeated. Togo, with her remaining power made a flower that will make them go back home safely. With the effort of Itsuki slowing the drop, Togo and Yuna arrives safely. They are later sent back to school and Karin told Taisha that there's four wounded and defeated the remaining vertexes.
