Chapter 372 of My Hero Academia revolves around the attack of mutants and Oboro Shirakumo, hero and best friend of Erazerhead and Present mic, will return.
Oboro Shirakumo, or Loud Cloud, is a student at UA High School in Class 2-A along with Shota Aizawa (Eraser Head) and Hizashi Yamada (Present Mic), trained to become a Professional Hero. The trio are good friends and stick together.
However, Shirakumo met his death in battle with a villain during his fight as Hero. After the fight, his body was stolen by All For One and turned into a Nomu called Kurogiri. This Nomu was later assigned as the caretaker to All For One’s successor, Tomura Shigaraki.
At the end of My Hero Academia chapter 372, both Spinner and Present Mic are seen rushing to the tower, shouting “Kurogiri” and “Shirakumo” respectively. All For One instructed Spinner to rescue Kurogiri, that it was possible to wake him up by playing a recording of Tomura’s or AFO’s voice. This means that the current Kurogiri has lost his sense of self.
Previously, My Hero Academia showed Shirakumo still inside Nomu’s body but wrapped in Kurogiri’s smoke. While dying in the course of his Hero work, Kurogiri showed signs of Shirakumo’s personality.
One of the biggest pieces of evidence is that Kurogiri recognized Eraser Head and Present Mic when they appeared to question him. He was quickly able to tell who they were. Another sign is that despite being a Nomu, Kurogiri possesses an advanced level of thinking, much higher than other Nomu. Also, instead of lust for violence, he’s more of a diplomat.
Previously, My Hero Academia also depicted Aizawa who, during his recovery, visited Kurogiri every day to talk and help him. While all efforts were futile, it is notable that Kurogiri was unable to use his Warp Quirk (with its other clone having been destroyed by Mirko during the war).

Also, one point that should be remembered is what All For One said. He instructs Spinner to “activate” Kurogiri by playing a voice recording of himself or Tomura Shigaraki. This points to the fact that there is a ‘switch’ inside Kurogiri that allows Nomu to gain control. After all, Shirakumo is not alone in it.
