My Hero Academia

Chapter 109 – Rescue Maneuvers

The examinee will be conducting rescue missions, for the next exam. They will be graded on their ability to be effective in rescuing the civilians. The civilians are trained in rescue maneuvers, the are part of a company called HUC (Help Us Company). Mera states that the civilians are disguised as ” injured victims and are scattered throughout the disaster site.”

The examines are graded on a point system, if the students are graded above average, they will pass. Izuku and Tenya realized that this exam is modeled after the Kamino Incident. As the exam begins, they are told about the scenario for the exam, basically  a “large scale destruction of buildings have resulted in large numbers of victims. The damage to the roads are severe and the emergency unit will be considerably late. Until the emergency unit arrives, all rescue activities will be left to the Heroes and they must save every life they can.”

The doors open and the examinees begin to rescue the civilians. Izuku, Ochako, Tenya, Minoru and Mina first encounter a crying baby, “who screams that his grandpa has been crushed.” The crying baby docks points from Izuku for his response to the situation. The baby tells Izuku that, he should “check if he can walk and his breathing and notes that he is bleeding. The child tells Izuku that is he wants a Provisional Hero License then he must be able to access the condition of a victim and take instant action.”

Shouta believes that Class 1-A would fall behind in the exam. The child tells Izuku that:

“The child tells Izuku that in addition to rescuing and providing relief, all authority and responsibility is on his shoulders and must smoothly act as the intermediary in rescue operations. In order to save lives, Heroes must be good at all sorts of things. The child questions Izuku’s tolerance towards the fear, pain and anxiety of the victims since he found Izuku’s first response to be terrible. The child’s advise reminds Izuku of what All Might does; telling the victims that everything is all right since he has arrived. Izuku gets back into focus and realizes that this exam isn’t a check point; everything he is doing is a part of chasing his dream to be a Hero.”

Izuku finally springs to action and check’s the child’s vital signs. He activates One For All Full Cowl, and takes the child to the first-aid station. Ochako realizes that her feels for Izuku is a distraction, and aims to focus more on being a hero. The chapter ends with a mysterious figure stepping on the disaster site. A very interesting chapter, I found the baby to be way to intelligent, considering his age. However, his advice was spot on and I think it has aided Izuku so far. I wonder if the Class 1-A will all pass this exam as well. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

One Piece

Chapter 841 – To the East Blue

It’s telling that I was surprised that Judge feed Sanji at all, certainly feeding him fancy food from person chef’s. Although, I would imagine that has more to due with the idea that no child of his would eat like a commoner. Sanji remembers cooking for his sick mother, he requested cooking tools and books.

Sanji horrible siblings discover he didn’t die, and beat him up in his cell. His sister doesn’t participate and help him heal afterwards. Reiji insists that she is not on his side, but continues to help him. She claims that her brothers are rendered incapable of sympathy due to their body modification, she is difference. 

008-1

 

Reiji aids Sanji in his escape, while he is trying to leave his father catches him. Sanji pulls a knife out on him, and threatens to kill his father. Judge seems to like the fact that Sanji will flee and live elsewhere. Sanji escapes on a ship to the East Blue, in tears. Meanwhile, in the Seducing Woods, we find that a fat Luffy has been consuming the biscuit soldiers. 

013-1

Luffy has taken to eating his soldiers and aims to exhausts Cracker. However, Cracker believes that Luffy will eventually suffer from all the eating. Considering the depressing story of Sanji’s childhood it is a relief to see some of the comedy this series is known for. I have found that the balance between the seriousness and humor is part of what makes this series so great. I’m happy that we seem to be returning to the present and Luffy.
