Synposis: The episode showcases Genos and Saitama’s applications into the Hero’s Association; they both undergo the physical and mental tests and end up as Ranks S and C, respectively. Also, thanks to their previous agreement, Genos is now officially Saitama’s disciple, and coupled with the upgrades he received from Dr. Kuseno, Genos is more powerful than ever, but still isn’t quite up to the level of Saitama yet.

Episode 4: The Price of Life

Release Date: October 25, 2015

Genre: Sci-fi, Mecha

Studio: Sunrise

Where to Watch: Daisuki, Crunchyroll

Synopsis: The episode begins with an explanation of Tekkadan’s plan to escort Princess Kudelia: they need to get to an orbital station, secure a ship formerly owned by CGS, and from there take some back routes to arrive on Earth, due to the major spaceways being watched by Gjallarhorn. One of the leftovers from CGS, a Mr. Todo, recommends that they use a company called Orcus to get to Earth, as he knows them personally, but he seems to have less-than-upright motives for doing so. As Orga dispatches Ahki and some others to secure the ship, we are taken to the Gjallarhorn Inspectors as they check out the records of Major Coral, the officer who sent the attack against CGS in the previous episodes. They don’t see eye-to-eye, and the Inspectors leave to investigate the conflict themselves. Meanwhile, Mika invites Kudelia to visit the farm of Biscuit’s grandmother, and they have some time to talk. Kudelia just barely manages to avoid the sudden intrusion of the Gjallarhorn Inspectors, as they have a run-in with Mika and Biscuit as they drive around the area searching for clues. As Mika and the gang return to base, they are greeted with the new symbol for Tekkadan, and yet Todo seems to be up to something.
