A pretty straight forward chapter this week.
Let’s start with the biggest revelation: The Third’s Fajin quirk. It wasn’t explained nor used much but from what I can gather it’s some sort of energy emission quirk. Dark energy carrying Deku’s objects, creating decoys so Mr. Ninth could take Lady Nagant by surprise. Nice. Honestly, I’m not sure what else Deku can do with the quirk. Shoot it out as a long range attack? I’m really blanking on what Deku can do with this against Shigaraki. But, no matter. I’m sure Fajin at full power is much more useful than what we’ve seen here. Fajin the Jojo Stand incoming?
Um… That’s about it.
Toshinori threw up another death flag, reminding the audience of his determination to protect Deku at all costs. Congratulations, Toshinori! That’s marks your 100th death flag in the manga. Here’s a coupon for a free horrific demise long predicted by your former sidekick. AND a free e-book of your choice. I strongly suggest you redeem the e-book first.
All(most) Might called the Top 3 on his phone so I guess they’ll show soon enough. Okay. That’s nice. Maybe I should talk about Lady Nagant’s slick boots for a couple minutes? Nah. Better end it here.
This was a decent chapter. It moved the plot forward, so that’s good. I also liked how each of the OFA predecessors refer to Deku differently. Nana calls him Izuku, En calls his Ninth, Banjo calls him Kid and so on. Myself? I enjoy calling him Megatron, but only on Thursdays between 6am and 4pm.
