My Hero Academia Chapter 270: Tomura awakens as the new All For One

Quirk Singularity Theory

My Hero Academia chapter 270, Inheritance, reveals how much power Tomura was given as he wake up. As Present Mic is dragging Dr. Kyudai Garaki away, the later mentions how his 70 year theory, called Quirk Singularity or Paranormal Singularity Theory was dismissed by society. The theory agrues that “as the generations follow one another, Quirks blend and evolve, producing stronger and more complex Quirks. However, with this increase in power, the Quirks will also become more difficult to control, since the human body doesn’t evolve quickly enough to keep up.” This theory can be seen to effect All For One. He has noted that some Quirks require more time to master than others and he rather not bother stealing them. This theory could be a explanation for the natural limitation to the All For One Quirk.

Qurik transfer and Life Force

Kyudai tells Present Mic that All For One was the only one that believed in his theory and htat he “extended his hand to him.” Grateful, Dr. Kyudai developed a reverence for All For One. That’s why he gave All For One his Life Force Quirk. Giving the user “twice the vitality of others at the cost of his athleticism,” the Quirk is the secret to both Dr. Kyudai and All For One’s longevity. Dr. Kyudai’s ability to scientifically duplicate Quirks is broken. However, it seems likely that Dr. Kyudai has lost his ability to do it after the heroes destoryed his lab. Tomura will likely be the last benificary of the process and considering that it was interruprted it (All For One) may not fuction properly.

Shigaraki awakens

I’ve been waiting for weeks for Tomura to wake up and start devastating the heroes rank. I assumed he would do it with his original Quirk and some enhancements, but now he can deliver even more damage. However, it all depends on whether his Quirk starts from zero or comes preloaded with all the Quirks All For One already stole. Its unclear how long it took All For One to steal a Quirk, but I doubt it’s instant. I’ve been preparing for some heroes to die (I think some will) but now some of them might lose their Quirks as well. I think My Hero Academia chapter 270 gave us a hint as to who might lose their Quirk first, Erasure Head.

The Top 5 My Hero Academia Heroes or Villains I want to know more about

Mr. Purple in all his glory

5. His Purple Highness

When first laying eyes on His Purple Highness or Mr. Purple he resembles the late great Prince. Not only does he look like the Prince, he also shares his birthday. That can’t be a coincendence right? A Pro Hero from My Hero Academia Vigilantes series, Mr. Purple is overdramatic hero. Setting his style and personality aside, I really want to know about his weird Quirk, Chest Hair.


4. Hiryu Rin

Rin is known as Dragon Shroud. A student in Class 1-B, he’s a highly intellingent student. His Quirk is Scales. He can “sprout strong, durable reptilian scales from his skin.” Rin’s Quirk is versatile, allowing him to use his scales as shields and projectiles. During the Joint Training Battle he was shoiwn using these scales to destroy Denki Kaminari’s pointers with great accuracy. He has quick reflexes, and good tactical skills. Rin is one of two foreign students, immagrating from China.


3. Godzillo

A Pro Hero that appeared in My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, Godzillo looks like the famous Kaiju. His Quirk, Toho, is named after the company that owns Godzilla, produces, and distributes the My Hero Academia series. His Quirk gives him the attributes of the Godzilla Kaiju and the ability to “produce nutriets” via Photosynthesis. He could be just a form of product placement, but I find this character interesting. Also, will My Hero Academia have a hero or villain for each Kaiju?


Jurota in his beast form

2. Jurota Shishida

Jurota looks like a beast from the outset. He is covered with fur and has two lower cannines sticking up between his lips. During the Joint Training Arc he reveals his versitity of his Quirk, Beast. He can change into a Beast-Man, increasing his senses, strength, speed, and duribilty. Jurota is higly intellegent, and clearly one of the strongests students in U.A. Finally, he’s clearly model after Beast from X-Men, and I love that character.


1. Kuin Hachisuka

Kuin is a villain from My Hero Academia Vigilantes. She a student and part time villain. She a member of Villain Factory, a criminal orgination that hopes to create a villain to rival All Might. They engage in terriosm and human experiments. The agents of this group use the drug Trigger to enhance their Quirks. Kuin’s Quirk is Queen Bee. She uses he worker bees to swarm and gain information. Each bee can transport small quantities of a substance and they have stingers that fucntion like syringes.

Each bee can control other people. The Quirk uses a parasitic bee like creature that implants into a host. Kuin is connected to each bee, so when they die or are injured she feels the pain. Kuin is one of three revealed characters that are “animals” with Quirks, the others being Monster Cat and Nezu. If the Queen is killed, one of the other bees will replace the Queen.

My Hero Academia Chapter 267 Recap and Review

My Hero Academia Chapter 267, with Mirko on the cover.
My Hero Academia Chapter 267, with Mirko on the cover.

Whenever a character dies, it creates an unease. You can’t help but think, who’s next? My Hero Academia chapter 267 presents two likely candidates, Mirko, and Hawks. The chapter opens with Hawks talking to Tokoyami, he reveals that “fire” is his greatest weakness. I think these two have developed a good relationship. Pro hero number 58, Fat Gum, is carrying several of the younger heroes from U.A. He tells them that it’s time for them to go and allow the “grown-ups” to “settle the score.” However, Tokoyami is distracted by the flames of Dabi. Hawks is overwhelmed by the flames. Hawks asks if he’s sad about Twice’s death? He says that he hasn’t cried since his tear duct got burned. Dabi saw Twice as a means to a end. Although, he does admit that he’s “sad,” Twice is dead.

Does My Hero Academia Chapter 267 reveal Dabi’s secret?

If you read this blog and have seen my theories on Dabi’s true identity then you know that I believe he’s Toya Todoroki. Unfortunately, Dabi doesn’t confirm his identity. He does reveal that he “doesn’t care about the league or Shigaraki.” He does plan to make the dream of Stain a reality. Elsewhere, Mirko notices that “her hits aren’t landing anymore.” While she doesn’t think her strength is waning, she must complete the mission. So she flees. Rushing towards the backroom to stop the Dr and Shigaraki, she wounded by a Nomu. Undeterred, Mirko notes that heroes “never give up.”

Hawk’s is rescued by Tokoyami and Endeavor saves Mirko. This arc continues to be intense. While Hawks and Mirko are saved I’m not sure they’re safe. Particularly Hawks. Tokoyami has an unfortunate weakness to light. Neither he nor Hawks are a good match-up for Dabi. That said, the conversation between the two could be revealing. Hawks notes that the only way to counter his weakness is to “attack quickly.” It’s plausible that Tokoyami, under the training of Hawks, has learned to deal with his weakness. Will Mirko die? I don’t think so. However, I have this nagging feeling that Shigaraki will wake. Killing a top 5 hero would be an excellent way for him to return.

My Hero Academia: war between the heroes and villains begin

My Hero Academia Episode 88: Recap and Review

In episode 88 of My Hero Academia, Endeavor refused to give up.
Endeavor refusing to give up

Endeavor is one of the most complicated heroes in My Hero Academia. A prideful man, Endeavor was constantly striving to dethrone All Might. This goal consumed him, resulting in a cold callous personality. His Quirks downside, overheating, caused him to seek to father a child without his limitation. To this end, he married an ice Quirk user. Unfortunately, Endeavor was a cruel and abusive father and husband. When Shoto’s mother attacked him after a mental breakdown, Endeavor sent her to a psychiatric ward. With his “masterpiece”, Shoto, hating him Endeavor has become determined to seek his families forgiveness.

A new symbol of peace

This coupled with his conflicted feelings regarding his unearned position as the number one hero Endeavor is intriguing. The question is, can he redeem himself, accept his place as the no. 1 hero, and become the new “Symbol of Peace.” My Hero Academia’s season finale hopes to begin to answer this question. Tasked with fighting the first High-end Nomu, Endeavor is tested. Despite Hawks aid, he doesn’t have an easy time. Endeavor is able to finally defeat the Nomu with Prominence Burn. Endeavor wasn’t unscathed receiving a massive scar over his eye. Exhausted but triumphant, Endeavor strikes a pose similar to All Might. Endeavor’s not like All Might, but that doesn’t mean he can’t become the next Symbol of Peace.

The animation in this episode is exquisite. It’s better to watch than have me describe in detail what happens. Overhaul, My Hero Academia episode 88 ends the fourth season with a bang. I originally didn’t like the first half of this season as I found it underwhelming. The festival arc, in particular, wasn’t that excited. However, I did enjoy how it ended. Season 4 was uneven but ended well. Regardless, the next season is going to be amazing.

My Hero Academia Episode 87: Recap and Review

In episode 87 of My Hero Academia the pussycats return.
The Pussycats return

In the penultimate episode of Season 4 of My Hero Academia, the last arc comes to a close. Eri is gets transferred to U.A. Abandoned by her family, Eri has nowhere to go. To keep her powers in check, Aizawa will need to be close. Mirio will take time off from school to help with Eri. Considering the relationship Mirio formed with Eri, this makes sense. He also doesn’t have a Quirk anymore, so he probably doesn’t need school right now. 

The Return of the Pussycats

The Wild Wild Pussycats arrive at the U.A. dorms. Everyone’s excited. They announce that they are returning from hiatus. Ragdoll, still without her Quirk, plans on becoming an office lady. They received a message from Tartarus. All For One apologizes for stealing her Quirk. He claims that “he has a little bad habit of taking up any good quirk and hoarding it for himself.” He mockingly offers to return it. I can’t help but feel that All For One will get free at some point. He’s too smart not to escape. Although All For One is being kept alive with an oxygen mask. 

Anyway, Momo says that “due to their period of inactivity, they have dropped a lot of positions in the ranking but still have fans who are waiting for their return.” The Pussycats ranking plummeted from 32 to 411. The remained that high because of public perception, inspiring them.

Hawks giving a speech

JP Hero Billboard Chart

With All Might retiring, there are new hero rankings. Considering the importance of the announcement, its held at Kamino. The Hero Billboard Chart is an official ranking of Japan’s heroes. The Hero Public Safety Commission uses a formula that reviews several factors to determine the rank. They emphasize the “number of cases solved, general popularity, and level of social contribution.” The approval ratings of heroes also factor in but aren’t as important as other factors. 

The new JP Hero Billboard Chart Rankings are:

  1. Endeavor
  2. Hawks
  3. Best Jeanist
  4. Ninja Hero Edgeshot
  5. Miruko
  6. Shield Hero: Crust
  7. Kamui Woods
  8. Laundry Hero: Wash
  9. Equipped Hero: Yoroi Musha
  10. Ryukyu
The High End Nomu arrives, Endeavor engages

Hawks Stands Out

Being a manga reader I know more about Hawks than this episode reveals. He’s arrogant and rude. He questions why ” Heroes with less accomplished that he is playing safe with his words instead of saying something more heroic-like.” His personality makes him more interesting. His motives seem questionable. Hawks want to team up with Endeavor. They’re an odd hero couple. While working with the police, Hawks was searching for information on Nomu. He wants Endeavor to verify the rumors regarding Nomu’s and ease the publics’ concerns. Suddenly, a “High End” Nomu arrives. It asks “who’s the strongest.” Endeavor orders Hawks to evacuate everyone and attacks with Flashfire Fist – Jet Burn

With only one episode left this season, My Hero Academia is going to go out with a bang. I can’t wait to see this fight animated. Endeavor is a hero that very little is known. We know more about him than most, but his motivation is unclear. Watching him fight a new threat will give us a glimpse into now strong his fighting style is. My Hero Academia is presenting him like All Might when he fought a Nomu. I don’t think it a coincidence. Kohei wants the viewers to compare the two heroes.
