In Anticipation of Tomorrow (明日に期待して Ashita ni Kitai shite ) is the sixth episode of Yuki Yuna is a Hero and originally aired on November 13th, 2014.
After receiving checkups at the hospital following their battle against the Vertex, Fū is revealed to have lost some vision in her left eye while Itsuki has lost her voice, both of which they assume to be temporary symptoms caused by battle fatigue. Besides this, they decided to celebrate their victory over the vertexes by eating alot of snacks that Fū purchased. However, upon discovering Yūna has also lost her sense of taste and that she herself has gone deaf in her left ear, Mimori fears that these symptoms could be a side-effect of the Mankai form and gets in touch with Fū about it. Meanwhile, Karin, who hasn't been affected since she didn't use the Mankai form, has been avoiding going to the clubroom, as she fears she no longer has any purpose now that the Vertex are gone. It is also shown that she may be feeling a form of survivor's guilt as everyone except her was affected. However, Yūna manages to find her and convince her that, even with no-one to fight, the Hero Club will still carry on like it always has. Touched by Yūna's friendship, Karin convinces Taisha to let her stay at Sanshu Middle School until graduation, while the girls make plans for summer break.
