Okay, then. Now we know the whole story.
Well, not the whole Toya story. Remember the cliffhanger last chapter? The one with Toya snapping and trying to attack baby Shoto? Well, we didn’t see how that played out, but Endeavor’s left sleeve is burned. I guess we’ll see what happened and how Toya ultimately survived the mountain fire some other time. Horikoshi’s probably saving it for the Dabi: Origin chapter(s).
What’s there left to say? Endeavor was a horrible father. Rei went along with it and had a mental breakdown. The other kids, Natsu and Fuyumi, they…didn’t do anything wrong. But, they feel guilty. Look, you two, it’s not your fault. Rei, give them the number of your therapist.
I do love Rei proclaiming Shoto’s the family’s hero. Sure, Endeavor has to stand back up and face Dabi, but he’s not the hero in this scenario nor will be become one. He’s just taking responsibility for what he did, nothing more.
So…once again I’m wondering will Endeavor survive until the end of the series. Is Horikoshi setting up the #1 hero defeating his son? …No. I think he will try, but in the end it will be Shoto who finally defeats the murderous Todoroki. Just like Deku has to defeat Shigaraki, Shoto will have to stop Dabi. And, Bakugo will one day have to stop…yelling. Yes, my friends, Bakugo VS The Library is now set in stone.
