My Hero Academia

Chapter 108: Rush

You Shindou assess the damage that he caused when he used his earthquake power. He says that they have weaken U.A., by separating them into two different groups. Other schools have joined in on attacking U.A. You’s female classmate suggests that this strategy has backfired on him. You, said that they can now take advantage of the chaos.

Katsuki, Eijirou and Denki pass, bring the total number of students to 82. Denki spots Izuku and the others, and cheerfully greets them. Katsuki kinda congratulates Izuku for passing. Inside the waiting room, Shouto, tells Izuku that 11 of their classmates have pass. However, 9 are still remaining, with 18 open spots left. Meanwhile, on the battlefield, Tenya and Yuuga face several enemies at once.

Tenya rescues Yuuga from a bullet. I a flashback, Yuuga recalls meeting up with Tenya, and deciding that they will team up. In the present, 8 more attendees pass, leaving only 10 places remaining. Ms. Joke is certain that her class are the ones that pass, and she is correct. Shouto is concerned that his students may not all pass. During battle Tenya decides to sacrifice himself, using his Navel Laser as a distraction.

He plans on attracting the other combatants to him, allowing Tenya to use his speed to get to their targets. Kouji uses his Quirk to call doves, to conceal the battlefield. Fumikage, Minoru, Mashirao, Tooru, and Mina all arrive and work together to take advantage of the situation. They all, including Tenya and Yuuga, manage to pass. This brings the number of students that passed to 100, ending the exam.

This exam was tied up a little too neatly. A perfect 100 students pass and all the U.A. students do as well. I guess it’s too much to ask for some of the U.A. students to fail, but we could have been given more to worry about. Regardless, I expected this to occur. What the next exam appears to be is a rescue mission. I wonder how Katsuki will handle that.

One Piece

Chapter 840 – Iron Mask

Yonji tells Sanji about the Germa 66 soldiers. They are kept in bottle shape tanks, in a cultural fluid. Yonji says that “humans can be manufactured.” He claims that Germa has been known for it’s scientific research. He reveals that their father worked directly with Vegapunk. Yonji explains that together they discovered the “lineage factor.” They basically found the “blue print for life itself.”

These soldiers are called, clone pawns. The are obedient and considered replaceable. Sanji gets annoyed and takes a smoke break. Ichiji and Niji interrupt, quickly going into mocking Sanji. Sanji becomes enraged and kicks Niji in the face. He shocks his siblings, but Ichiji reminds him that Zell is endanger. Niji grabs Sanji from behind and uses Henry Needle, striking him in the back.

007-3

Ichiji reminds Sanji that he is a “failure.” Sanji flashes back to his childhood. We learn that Sanji’s siblings are scientifically advanced. His siblings are simply better at every measure and Sanji is considered a normal human. His father is disappointed at this news, and after consideration, decides to hold a “funeral” for Sanji. His siblings are actually happy that Sanji is “dead.” However, Sanji is actually imprisoned in the dungeon, in an iron mask. He is devastated when he is informed that his father put him there. 

014-1

At this point, it goes without saying that Sanji’s family is horrible, except his sister. His family continues to come across as being worst and worst. Their abuse and cruelty is stunning, with their disregard for the lives of others becoming clear. It’s hard to see how Sanji escapes this predicament. I will say that I think his sister will become a more active help at some point in the arc. Even though we know that Sanji escapes, I’m curious how it happens.
