Everybody Was Combo Fighting [My Hero Academia 355]

It’s Jiro’s world and you just live in it.

Wow! Jiro’s really shining in this arc. Going up against All For One? One of the biggest bads there is, and she’s still pressing on. Remember how the Bakugo Rescue Team (Deku and Friends) were paralyzed and almost threw up in AFO’s presence back in Kamino? Yeah, Jiro’s strong willed, Y’All. Even losing an ear didn’t stop her. MVP of the Week right here!

Buuuuut, there’s one tiny problem: Jiro’s speech/conviction motivating the wills of AFO’s stolen quirks. That was a bullsh*t sandwich with cheese. Took me out the chapter. Now, if it’s revealed to be some effect of her sound quirk? Sure, it’d still stink but less like a New Jersey sewer and more like a post-broccoli cassorole fart. I’d take the fart but I’d rather not have either.

And that’s why AFO stole a duct tape quirk

Welcome Back, Jack [My Hero Academia 354]

The backup singers have arrived!

Now, that’s a superhero entrance! Bravo, Earphone Jack & Tsukuyomi! Helping Hawks and Endeavor fight All For One is one hell of an upgrade. It’s about as pro-hero as you can get. Just don’t die, okay?

Wish Jiro would sit on me. Wait! Did I say that out loud?

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble [My Hero Academia 353]

Coming Soon: More Fighting!

Dabi’s indeed down for the count, but not quite out. Something’s happening to his body. Did AFO give him an extra quirk while slapping his butt as a token of encouragement? That has to be a second quirk glowing in Dabi’s chest. I wonder what it’ll do? While I wasn’t that invested in Dabi and Shoto’s fight, I’m looking forward to what Horikoshi has planned for Dabi in the future. See you in round 2, Hothead.

More Tartarus escapees! Yes! That’s what I want, more powerful villains giving our heroes a run for their money. This Kunieda guy’s with his plant related quirk looks fun. Can’t wait to see that in action.

You think that’s weird? Wait until you see his nipple missile quirk.

The return of Gigantomachia? I certainly hope so. It’s the last arc; pull out all the stops, Hori-darling. Can’t wait to see Skycrawler showing up and taking him down. Just kidding! Kochi’s going to help Endeavor beat down All For One. Yeah, I’m gonna keep saying it. He’s coming, damn it! No one call tell me otherwise!

Chill Out, Bruh! [My Hero Academia 352]

Why should I care about this fight again?

Toya VS Shoto. Uh-huh. They’re brothers, but that’s it. There’s no real personal investment from either. Dabi’s just attacking Shoto because he’s Endeavor’s favorite, while Shoto’s using Dabi as a stepping stone to master his new Ultimate Move.

And sorry, Shoto, but I’m over your daddy issues. I’m glad for you, but I don’t feel all too invested because you’ve been slowly reconnecting with your dad. Sure, you were feeling stuck seeing Izuku and Bakugo gain experience and power, but I don’t think the manga focused on your insecurities enough in the last fifty chapters to deserve this kind of payoff. I’m so apathetic about it all.

♪The cold never bothered him anyway.♪

Super Flare-rio Bros. [My Hero Academia 351]

Dabi’s not making out of the series alive, is he?

How can he? It’s been setup he should’ve been dead years ago, and he has zero regret killing people. Also, losing to Shoto will kill his ambition. It’s one thing losing to dear old Endeavor, but Shoto? His little masterpiece? Woo boy! That’s a loss if I ever seen one. Dabi should drop dead the second that happens. But who knows? Maybe Shoto will save him by freezing him? …Nah! He dead!

And by “us” Shoto means the United States. You can’t just dump your problems on Captain Celebrity, dude.

Chris P. Dabi [My Hero Academia 350]

Meh.

All For One and Ujiko saved Toya. …Okay. I was hoping for something more interesting, but that’s what we get. Sure, it makes sense. The son of the No. 2 hero would make a fantastic vessel in case something happened to Tomura Shigaraki. I’ll give you points for that, AFO. Too bad for you, Dabi wasn’t having any of that.

Looks like the same orphanage Dabi woke up at, right? My guess is Overhaul was another failed experiment. Kinda hard molding someone into a quirk-filled vessel when they hate quirks. I wonder if anyone else lived at that orphanage? Bruno Mars, maybe?

Time for AFO to break out the Aloe vera quirk

Wanna Know How I Got These Burns? [My Hero Academia 349]

Dabi: Origin is a go!

I’ve been wondering how the heck Dabi survived his flames turning blue for years. Looks like we’re getting the low-down next chapter. So, will Dabi burn himself out? It certainly seems like Endeavor’s first son isn’t holding back anymore. My guess: All For One gave him another quirk. Something to offset his enormous fire power. Maybe.

From the last page, it looks like he’s literally burning up. Could be a fake out, I guess. It just seems like a wasted opportunity if AFO didn’t give Dabi a support quirk for his power. Hell, both Toga and Spinner should’ve also gotten a secret hidden quirk from Daddy AFO. It’d certainly make all of their fights more interesting.

Those staples aren’t working, Dabi. Time to bust out the duct tape!

It’s Not You, It’s Me [My Hero Academia 348]

You know what they say: The shorter the skirt, the sharper the knife.

The love gloves are off. Time to get serious. But, hey! I’ll give Toga huge respect points for confessing to Deku. That took guts…from someone wanting to take Deku’s guts. Wearing your heart on your sleeve can be hard for many, including myself. Toga, you’re insane, but you’re confident. If only she’d met the League of Podcasters instead of Villains, she could host her own self-help show.

So, what do we call them? Izuga? Todoriya? Demiko?

Giving Heroes The Finger [My Hero Academia 347]

Hands ≥ Quirk Singularity

Did anyone understand how hands prevent quirk singularity? I didn’t. Maybe it’s more about Shigaraki’s body being more adaptable? His body able to change itself to best suit any quirk he obtains? Sure, let’s go with that.

Team Best Jeanist is screwed without Deku, but they’re still quite the powerhouse. They’ll eventually lose, but it gonna be a treat seeing them trying to win. This group won’t go down easily. Well, except for maybe Suneater. What the heck is he gonna do against Shigaraki? Smack him with a lobster claw? Get outta here!

Use the spare equipped with a grenade launcher, Mirko!

I’m Not Locked In Here With You! You’re Locked In Here With Me! [My Hero Academia 346]

The heroes turned U.A. into a flying prison for Shigaraki.

That’s it. Mind you, it’s awesome. A feat that could only be made by the efforts of multiple heroes with the perfect quirks for the job along with other specialized heroes keeping it all functioning. A grand marvel of My Hero Universe technology. Just…not a lot to talk about.

I like Mirko’s short hairdo. Um…hey! Was that short-haired electric quirk girl the same one who’s friends with Nejire Chan? Very interesting. Let’s talk about for five minutes! …No? Okay.

Truly, a sight to behold. And yet they still haven’t got around to fixing U.A.’s second floor men’s bathroom.
