must rescue the child

Rating 9/10

Deku is accepted into the agency and him plus Mirio decide to do some field work by patrolling. While patrolling they come across the young Shie Hassaikai’s new leader, Chisaki, and a little girl by the name of Eri. Eri grabbed onto Deku and he notices bandages and her trembling. After Mirio tells Deku he should let go of Eri, he deeply doesn’t want to because he knows she’s in trouble. They leave and report to Sir Nighteye. Sir Nighteye tells them that they have to wait to do a drug bust then they can rescue Eri. All the pro heroes and interns come together to make a strategy to go save Eri as well as bring down the Shie Hassaikai’s. They prepare to execute the plan; the time begins to do a countdown.

I have to say, I immediately got a brother sister vibe between the interaction of Deku and Eri, I sort of expected that sort of reaction was going to happen. I have to say, can’t wait to see more of Eri in the future of the manga volumes that are to come. This was a good volume. I feel that Horikoshi really went full in depth when creating these backstories and plot lines as well as creating characters with such memorable traits. Please, if one is a manga enthusiast, buy the entire manga and read it. I can’t express how good the story is and the characters are. I love this manga more and more. I plan to finish up until the last one I have which is volume 23.

Bakugo now knows the SECRET

After Deku and Bakugo finish their confrontation, All Might comes over to talk to them both. They broke a rule and have to suffer the consequences of leaving after curfew as well as fighting. The second semester starts, and they all have to do some hero work studies. Tamaki, Nejire, and Mirio, the top three of U.A. High stop in Class I.A. to discuss hero work studies and what it means to work hard for what is wanting to be achieved. Deku is advised to go work for the agency whose boss is All Might’s sidekick, Sir Nighteye. Deku has to prove to him that he is worthy of being a part of the company and deserved to inherit One for All.

This manga brings in new characters that I become overly obsessed with. As well as interactions with these new characters. My favorites so far while reading this was Mirio and Tamaki. They both are weird but totally lovable for their weirdness. I feel like in the next volumes I’ll come to love them even more. This one was a fun manga to read for sure. Just sad that there weren’t more character interactions with Tamaki besides his introduction. However maybe there will be more in the future manga. Loved this volume.

tests, scores, nemesis OH MY!

Rating 9/10

Class 1.A continue their hero provisional licensing testing on the rescue portion of the exam. Once they’re done, all are given their scores. Nearly most of the class passes and some don’t. Those who didn’t have to go do supplemental work to make up for it. All Might goes to visit a nemesis. A new villain is on the scene. Bakugo goes and confronts Deku.

This one is short because it’s the continuation of the last volume and wanted to keep this short that way those who are interested can go read for themselves. There is some drama that does occur between characters but that is spoiling the good stuff. Anyways, I feel that All Might visiting his nemesis wasn’t a good idea. I’m going to just say Midoriya’s hero name, Deku because its easier to type and I prefer that name. Not being lazy just preference personally. The confrontation got extremely heated as equally as emotional. There is a lot to learn more about Bakugo and Deku. Their character interactions have led them to understanding each other’s goals and I see them becoming rivals. This volume was also my favorite.

hero provisional license training

Rating 10/10

It’s a new day for Class 1.A. and they begin their training so they can all get their hero provisional licenses. They also have to create their signature moves. Some students have it easy when coming up with a move where others not so much. They begin their provisional hero licensing testing that tests them not only hero work but rescue work as well. The style is a free for all but limited spaces.

I loved this part of the manga because this did help me understand the difficulties of obtaining a hero license that allows them to do hero work without getting into trouble. It’s not easy as one would think and there are limits as well. I think having a limited amount of hero licenses being distributed helps maintain the hero population and regulates the ability of some to do hero work. Including rescue work is also equally vital when it comes to hero work as well. To fight crime is one aspect but to do rescue work is another. Being prepared in a world where there are villains out to do evil without thinking of the toll of their actions is extremely important. I like how Horikoshi came up with more lore to this world. I honestly do. Love this volume.

an epic battle of the decade!

Rating 9/10

They find out who the big boss of League of Villains, All for One, has been the ringleader this entire time. Their attacks were meant to draw out All Might. All Might and All for One duke it out in a near death defying fight that leaves All Might weak. Everyone watches the fight in horror to see All Might’s unpowered state. All for One is escorted out and into prison. Meanwhile, students’ safety becomes a top priority, so the principal arranges for students to live at dorms on campus. All class I.A. move into their dorms and make themselves at home.

A great way to introduce All Might’s rival in an epic battle. However, this made me feel for All Might after that fight. He now can’t use his quirk as usual. I was just disappointed that they only caught All for One, but not the League of Villains. I guess one less evil in this world is fine. The battle was pretty epic though. I do recommend buying the manga series in whole or as much as one can get because I know that I haven’t completed nor finished the series but this is to go towards support for the artwork and for Horikoshi to continue creating this world. I fell into a deep passionate obsession. At this point I’m too far invested as I had mentioned a few blogs back.

safety first, rescue later?

After surviving the attack from the League of Villains, they suffer some losses and one kidnapping of Bakugo. All are escorted to nearby hospitals for treatment. During this time, the teachers of U.A. talk with the police and proceed to have a press conference for how to go about rescuing. Also, they discuss future protection measures for the students at U.A. High. Meanwhile, Midoriya and some classmates decide to take matters into their own hands about saving Bakugo. Bakugo deals with the League of Villains trying to tempt him into the dark side but he doesn’t wish so. Pro Heroes arrive, but nothing is as it seems!

This manga was excellent because this demonstrates effort when it comes to planning a rescue. Seeing all the pro-heroes come together to work is so fun. There are new characters as well. We also see more League of Villains and the big boss. I find that the anime follows the manga really closely. I plan to do a comparison once I am done reading the manga series to the anime series that I had watched prior to obtaining the manga.

summer training camp goes wrong!

Rating 8/10

As Midoriya and his classmates survive day one of the summer training camp, they find themselves improving their quirks and strategies. The League of Villains attack and they have a mission to capture a U.A. student. Midoriya faces a challenge that will take more strength of his quirk than he ever had used. A student is kidnapped!

 I felt so bad for the attack on the summer camp training and how those villains continue to attack relentlessly. I mean I get it that they want to find the strongest student with the strongest quirk. This summer training arc is quite fun and even though there is an attack on the camp, the characters have more experience using their quirks. I feel that this allows them to see what they can do in crisis mode versus just simulated crisis modes. Its not great that they are under attack but hands on experience does good.

exams and summer camp?

Rating 8/10

Midoriya and his classmates take their exams and as they finish taking their exams, they speculate whether or not they passed. Some believe they did due to success and others, not so much the case. Once their exams are done, they are given results. All are eligible to go to Summer Training Camp. However, there are some students who didn’t pass the exams that have to do extra work during the Summer Training Camp. It’s their first day and training immediately begins. While they were training, the League of Villains plan their attack on the camp.

I found the summer training camp arc really humorous and heart felt. A lot of characters learn more about themselves and others. I was speculating that they all had passed their exams cause some of them didn’t fulfill the requirements to pass the exam but then there was a plot twist that should’ve been seen a mile away or pages away, but I forgot about the possibility. I am really and deeply invested in this manga series and too deep into this to back out. I have my best friend to thank and my boyfriend to thank.

hero aliases and internship madness

Rating 9/10

The students of U.A. High are recovering and resting, however tragedy hits with Iida, his brother got attacked by the Hero Killer Stain. He tells no one other than everything is fine. Aizawa, their homeroom teacher tells them they must get some hero aliases for when they do their student internships at the different companies. Each student came up with their own, some needing more work than others. Midoriya picks Deku as his hero name. Aizawa gives all the students the possible internships they all can work for. Midoriya finds that Gran Torino wants Midoriya to be his intern. Midoriya finds him a little bit off but Gran Torino teaches him how to harness his powers and how to use his brain properly. They set off to do some hands-on experience when the League of Villains and Stain attack the city. Iida finds Stain in the middle of attacking a hero and decides to act on his own to fulfill his revenge. Midoriya finds Iida and Stain, he sends a message out to Todoroki to get help. They have to fight Stain and protect themselves long enough for the pro heroes to arrive.

This arc of student internships was one that I did like because this allowed more character development and interactions with the characters to create a neutrality among the class. With this arc, there is more information given to the audience of an indepth close look at other characters of why they are the way they are and how they want to change the world by becoming heroes. This was more exciting than the last arc to be honest. This had more characters introduced that as well are heroes and the agencies that the students do their internships at. I enjoyed this volume for the training scene between Gran Torino and Midoriya. That was weird but Gran Torino had some good points and he is such an old person stereotype with the severe dementia. Anyways this one was fun to read, and the artwork is highly detailed, some a bit too much.

Midoriya and his classmates are in the final stages of the tournament. They find out who wins and well as rest after the pretty stressful and strenuous tournament activities. Not everyone rests easily as others do.

As I said in the previous book blog inquiry on the fourth volume, I don’t care for this tournament arc. I understand that others would find this interesting. I don’t but respect others. That’s why I didn’t skip over. I felt that whoever reads the manga, can come to their own conclusion about the arc. I had seen the anime, and this follows the anime.
