Searching for Deku

In Chapter 275 of My Hero Academia, as Tomura searches for Deku, he notes that Ragdoll’s Search Quirk came preloaded with Quirk uses that she recorded. This, of course, includes Deku as she obtained this information during the Training Camp Arc. Endeavor, while pursuing Tomura, is confused by Deku. When Tomura lands, Endeavor attacks him with a blast of fire. However, Tomura dodges and changes his direction. Overhearing the conversation, Tomura becomes frustrated with the fact that the heroes are communicating electronically. He uses an “Air Cannon” Quirk in conjunction with a “Radio Waves” Quirk, jamming all the communication. Before he does, Endeavor informs the other heroes that Tomura is heading southwest, and he has a Super Regeneration Quirk. 

Katsuki chases Deku

Deku questions why Katsuki is following. We know that Katsuki will never admit he’s trying to protect Deku. He responds that he’s the “only one who can make the people understand quickly enough is himself.” As someone privy to Deku and All Might’s secret, Katsuki feels responsible for helping Deku succeed. He also admits that he has a “score to settle with Tomura.” Bakugo has difficulty coming to terms with the reason for All Might’s retirement. Bakugo is unable or incapable to accept that getting caught wasn’t a sign of his weakness or the cause of All Might’s downfall. His guilt has followed him ever since. 

Shigaraki verses Eraserhead

Bakugo notices that Deku can use Full Cowl on average at about 30%, and he increases the output to 45% at the moment of impact. He releases that Deku always manages to surpass him, but he will not continue to allow that. I was initially concern whether Deku and Bakugo could handle Tomura. However, this conflict might not happen. Deku envisions both himself and Bakugo being disintegrated by Tomura. Suddenly, Gran Torino grabs the two of them. He notes that Tomura’s decay Quirk is so powerful that “merely touching the falling debris will ensure instant death.” Deku protests, but Gran Torino reminds him that other heroes can fight. 

Tomura gets ambushed

Ryukyu attacks Tomura with her claws. He grabs her claw, however, his Quirk doesn’t activate. Ryukyu knocks Tomura into the air. Eraserhead arrives, inspired by the death of Crust and his friend Oboro, he tells Tomura “not mess with his students.” So far in this arc, I’ve have obsessed over two things, who gets their Quirk erased and who dies. I going to guess that Eraserhead loses his Quirk and Gran Torino dies. 

Tomura doesn’t have many weaknesses at this point but Eraserhead’s Quirk is one of them. It would be strategically wise of him to “destroy” Eraserhead’s Quirk. However, I think Eri will rewind it at some point so it won’t be a major loss. Gran Torino, on the other hand, would be a perfect victim. He’s important enough to matter, he’s connected to All Might, and Deku, and he’s a member of the old guard. His death would be impactful, but also symbolize the end of an era. That said Tomura may get overwhelmed as he doesn’t seem very skillful without his Quirk. With multiple heroes attacking at once he might need to be rescued by Gigantomachia. 

My Hero Academia Chapter 274: Recap and Review

  1. I can’t say I see Gran Torino dying before All Might- sad as it is to say. We all know about Horikoshi’s love of “Star Wars;” he’s invoking a lot of the original trilogy in Deku, All Might, Gran Torino, Tomura, and All For One. If we go by this logic: Tomura will kill All Might, and Gran Torino will die some years later.

    1. I never noticed that MHA was inspired by Star Wars. I can’t see a full fledge fight occurring right now between Tomura and the heroes. I think it will be interrupted but someone will die that will saddened and inspire the younger heroes.
