My Supervillain Don’t Want None Unless You Got Buns, Hun [My Hero Academia 366]

Deku’s back! …Now what?

We have a lot to talk about. Sike! No, we don’t. Shigaraki took every hero down one by one until Deku arrived. That’s it. Oh! And Mirio’s got a fat ass. How fat? Like DC Comic’s Nightwing fat? Which heroic posterior’s bigger? Let’s discuss.

Disarmed and Dangerous [My Hero Academia 365]

What is even happening??

You know what? I’m getting sick and tired of all the pro-heroes who appeared in My Hero Vigilantes dying and/or getting disfigured. Endeavor, Mirko, Ingenium, Eraserhead, Best Jeanist (fake died), Sir Nighteye, Midnight, All Might (Technically is gone.), and Mirko. Who’s next? Fat Gum? Burnin? And, yes, I know I said Mirko twice. It’s because she’s lost her other arm in this chapter. Yeesh!

Something’s affecting All For Shiggy’s perfect body. Did Bakugo’s attack mess him up more than he thought, or is it more psychological? Is “Tenko” at work here? Who knows? I sure don’t. Let me be honest here: I don’t like Deku wanting to “save” Shigaraki. It get it’s one of My Hero’s themes but I feel Shigaraki’s caused way too much death and destruction for that to even be an option anymore. Yes, he was groomed by All For One and yes, he’s also a victim of that monster. But, again, he’s gone past the point of no return. Just like AFO should be put down for good, so should Shigaraki.

You’re so cool, Mirko. Give me fiv— Oh…! Never mind.

Horikoshi doesn’t agree.

Be Kind, Rewind [My Hero Academia 364]

Horikoshi does it again. And not in a good way.

Crust. Star And Stripe. And, now, Edgeshot. Horikoshi just can’t stop killing heroes before they’re properly developed. Sure, Edgeshot’s been around, but did you know he was good friends with Best Jeanist since high school until this chapter? Did the two ever reference their past or joke/talk in a way showing they’re lifelong pals? Nope. It’s just thrown in at the last second. And poor Midnight had some development, but what did that get her? Off-screened killed. Yeah, I haven’t forgotten. Why are you so against giving pro heroes their proper due, Horikoshi? I-I just don’t get it.

All For One’s ready to unleash his abs upon the world

Extreme Makeover: Villain Edition [My Hero Academia 363]

All For One brought sexy back. You other villains don’t know how to act.

All For One’s healed?! Uh-oh! Either he’s got the world’s most talented plastic surgeon on his side or that needle we last saw him with contained Eri’s blood. Is this the final payoff to Tomura stealing Overhaul’s research? Looks like it. But instead of manufacturing quirk erasing weapons, the yummy Overlord of Evil used it to recover from All Might’s attack. Smart.

What does this mean for the injured Endeavor, Hawks and everyone else and Gunga Villa ruins? Well, they’re screwed! At least they are without backup. Um…Skycrawler? You comin’ or what?

AFO’s dream of becoming a Calvin Klein underwear model can finally come true

An Explosive Demise [My Hero Academia 362]

So… is he dead or not?

Is Katsuki Bakugo truly dead? Horikoshi sure wants us to think that. Most of the chapter was dedicated to giving Dynamight a heroic end. Hori even showed Bakugo’s heart getting stabbed. Hmm… This is a toughie. The only way I see Bakugo getting saved is Eri, but she’s not there. Now, could someone have developed a tweaked version of Overhaul’s quirk erasure formula? One that could rewind someone back a minute or so? That’s the only thing I can come up with and it’s one heck of a Hail Mary.

If this was One Piece, all he’d need is some bandages and a post fight afterparty.

Shiggy’s Home For Imaginary Friends [My Hero Academia 361]

It’s all up to Suneater. Yeah, really.

Okay, so, Suneater’s the key in The Big 3’s master plan to slow down Super Shiggy. Yep…

And apparently, Suneater can also gain the powers of any human he eats, as evident by the shy lad eating Nejire Chan. No! Not like that! A piece of her hair or something else that contains her DNA. Hmm… Makes me wonder if he ate a piece of Togata too? I don’t see why not. Well… Actually, Lemillion’s quirk is hard to master, so maybe he couldn’t for that reason. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Bakugo De-Feeted [My Hero Academia 360]

Warning: Evil Toes Ahead!

I like to read a chapter at least twice, make talking points, then write my general thoughts. Here’s my talking points for this chapter:

…What? There’s nothing there? Yeah, I got zip to say. Not to say nothing happened. Stuff happens in every chapter. I can talk about Shigaraki’s long, white locks all day, but that’s not interesting.

Some fans would pay to be in Bakugo’s position. Switch Shigaraki out with Ms. Joke and I’ll give you all the money.
Manga My Hero Academia

Bakugo Gets Skeeted On [My Hero Academia 359]

Stop trying to make the business course matter, Horikoshi.

It’s far too late for that. Should’ve given them a chapter or two arcs ago. I care about them less than All For Shigaraki does about Bakugo.

Yep, Bakugo thought he was wearing big boy pants, but he’s still rockin’ diapers. The little firecracker used his strongest attack against a quirkless Shigaraki and lost, big time! Too bad, so sad. We’re at the endgame, Y’All. If you ain’t packin’ enough heat to melt the polar ice caps, then you’re in the wrong place. You get a gold star for tryin’ though.

Xmas came early for Bakugo haters

Explosive Dyna-rrhea [My Hero Academia 358]

Time to learn who’s approaching Deku. …What?

WHAT?! No Deku scene? So, I gotta wait a week or more to learn who the heck’s flying toward him? Come on! Well, maybe that’s a good thing. If it’s important, say like Deku meeting a group of international heroes (including Skycrawler), Horikoshi may be building hype for the reveal. Plus the last volume of My Hero Vigilantes recently came out in Japan. Hori-sensei is probably giving Vigilantes fans time to enjoy Koichi’s debut as an official hero there before introducing him into the main series. Yeah, I’m going all in on this, Y’All. It’s Skycrawler or bust! You can’t tell me he’s not coming. The voices in my head told me, so it must be true.

The only thing that could make this more American is Bakugo eating an apple pie.

Instead, we get a chapter on Team Best Jeanist’s fight against Super Shigaraki inside the flying U.A. fortress. Well, not much of a fight, really. Just the heroes dodging Shiggy’s “simple growth” hands. From what I can understand, the All For One quirk is still adjusting to his body. Basically, he’s getting a final form. That’s the meta here. Don’t act surprised. This is a battle shonen after all.

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Hero [My Hero Academia 357]

Endeavor’s mad as hell, and he’s not gonna take it anymore!

Fire Daddy’s angry, Y’All! And, I love he’s accepted it. Using it, in fact, to cause maximum damage to All For One. The power of focused rage is indeed scary. And big-ups to Hawks for giving Endeavor a feathery speed boost. I love combo attacks and that one’s simple, yet effective.

Not as scary as a wounded chocolatier
