So what, it does not matter if you can foretell the movements the enemy is going to do if you are not fast or strong enough to act against them.
So far because Deku is still a teen and has no complete control over OfA, but this quirk would be fucking useless against AfO or All Might in their prime, hell even against Todoroki or someone with AOE attack capability.
Wow, it's almost like some quirks are better than others.
I don't even know what kind of point you're trying to make. Do you like complaining? Have you seen Sir fight at his strongest? Please tell us.
And that's exactly why he was All Might's sidekick. He is the perfect support hero, and the perfect companion to All Might, the strenght that Sir lacks.
He's probably not even a hero now, just delovering information and making keikakus. Doing internships with Sir is probably doing missions commanded by hin.
first few pages are fanboy meets fanboy
OH FUCK NO
Seriously, Hori made them pair up not because Deku could make him laugh but because they are both All Might fans and sperg out like nerds at the same time?
>Just woke up
>It's out just now
Love the timing
>>Am I worthy?
>>I am worthy!
I can't be the only one who feels excited for assertive Deku
they only way to overcome foresight is too pin him in a situation he can not move out. which likely deku dont have the experience for.
even a 100% dash with OfA will be moot as the guy will know when he will do it and just side step
He's right though, Deku hasn't proved himself as anything but mediocre until now, and all might has been babying him.
This was a needed confrontation or Deku would just end up looking like he was handed everything on a silver platter.
I am pretty hyped for it, I am just waiting for the day he will go full Rai-Oh/Dai-Rai-Oh
The fight against Muscular and how he came with the plan to save Bakugou were pretty good moments, Sir is simply an asshole and Mirio wasn´t even that good before training him.
almost anyone else would be a better vessel for OfA due to dual quirk.
AM ultimately choose duke for his heath, goal and conviction rather than raw fight potential
he somehow makes him laugh. he lower his guard. deku gets teh stamp. double win, made him laugh and get the stamp
Both those moments he was literally just swinging all might's arms around. Both those plans were rudimentary and could have been done better by professionals.
The point is everything Midoriya can do Mirio can do better, while also being inspiring. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve the quirk but to someone like sir he just looks inadequate compared to Togata.
Even after he got his quirk, it was stated that all-might already had a much higher level of mastery than he did, despite also being quirkless and having a similar set of rushed vessel standards.
Again I like Midoriya, but this sort of confrontation was needed for him to reaffirm the fact that there was a purpose to him being chosen.
Muscular fight was exactly how Deku was mediocre. He couldn't do anything with just Full Cowl so he needed to fall back to breaking his bones again.
Deku's main ability so far is his scheme-making ability, not his combat skill. I wouldn't be surprised if Iida or Kirishima could beat him in a 1vs1 fight.
Except for the fact that he had already mastered his quirk at a higher level than midoriya by the time he entered his first year of highschool.
Gran torino even states Deku has a long way to go, but the potential and self-sacrificing instinct to be great.
The issue is that Hori has moved away from Deku's mad man moments into more practical combat abilities, where he falls short when he's using full cowl.
Agreed, this is a pretty terrible Quirk for most situations all things considered. More importantly, the Quirk doesn't actually work unless you touch the enemy, a huge drawback that makes it even more useless. If you try and touch someone like Shigaraki, odds are he'll be able to touch YOU.
So wait, what happens if deku closes his eyes?
>did you forget how he did in the sports festival?
>it's all about winning bro
sometimes l wonder how retarded one would have to be to completely miss obvious messages targeted at junior high kids
Nothing has shown that he's a big pro hero, he was just the sidekick of All Might, not to mention he's a keikaku-man. People want to work for him for his brains, not his abilities.
That doesn't change the fact that he did poorly, showed poor control of his quirk, and didn't even show up in the top two.
It's like failing at an exhibition as pro boxer, no one is going to sponsor you. That's the reality of the situation anon, this was stated since the beginning of the festival.
So I don't really understand what you mean.
Foresight my ass. Why didnt Deku just throw the freaking desk or tickleing machine at him?
Knowing that he's throwing something big at you doesnt make you dodge it
No, all gran torino did was show Deku he's shit and force him to re-think his strategy. This is actually comparing Deku with someone who is by all rights more deserving than him.
He has to prove that he deserves it, not to the reader but to Sir.
I think you are writing too much conclusions based on 2 half pages.
You literally don't know the extent of his physical abilities, and completely ignore the fact there's such thing as costumes, tools, weapons and gadgets.
"normies" in their world are still very capable, as seen with Stain. (which is common in normal cape comics as well, see Batman).
Except that's not where the comparisons end, Mirio is more more free-spirited, and more inspiring than Deku, to Sir he's the humorous, stalwart image that AM was, that on top of the fact that he's strong makes him to Sir, a perfect candidate.
If you would actually read the chapter you'd understand where Sir's logic comes from, not that I agree with it, but it's not just him randomly hating on Deku.
Aside from the Grades, Mirio is a lot better in all regards. He was already finishing his studies in UA, meaning that he was ready to serve society as a profesional hero, and having both All Might's strength and his invincibility, he would had been invencible.
Not to mention that he seems to be much more charismatic and likable than Deku. Deku has his moments, but he still has a lot of room to grow in that aspect.
more like a Kiyomaro
Able to foresight movements doesnt make you able to dodge them if your body is shit.
How can his normal body can keep up with Dekus hyper movements?
>almost anyone else would be a better vessel for OfA due to dual quirk.
You forget the fact that he thought that he thought that AfO was dead, he was looking for a succesor that could carry his ideals and worthy of the power, not someone that could actually kick AfO ass
>You already know the end of the doujin
Maybe if Iida play smarter than Deku.
Hahaha heck no Kirishima going to get reck by Deku with just 5% alone and 8% pretty much going to destroy 3/4 of the class.
>his normal body
We are talking about a professional hero who was the nr 1 hero's sidekick. He sure as hell has plenty of combat abilities apart from just his quirk. We don't know the extent of his abilities but this is sure as hell.
Blue* and no, he didn't touch her. He doesn't seem to be having grand future seeing abilities, just predicting the movements of his touched targets for a nifty combat advantage.
This so much. Hell, Deku himself is much more interesting when he's with his classmates because he takes a various role within a group; he's always the modest, boring nerd never taking the initiative when interacting with characters from outside the school.
shit taste this is fun so far.
worst arc so far was provisional licence and that had everyone
So you telling me that 8% of a man who punch destroyed some building complexes in a heavy weakened state is not enough to physically outclass some dude with no body enhancing quirk?
The better option would be to put the guy in a situation where he'd prefer losing.
Like by having Deku tear up or deface the All Might fan-stuff that he has all around the room. Do it enough and he'll lose his shit, and start to actively try and stop you, which will weaken his defense since he'll have to multi-task.
It burns me that Deku is such a shit MC who needs to depend on others for recognition and improvement.
I wish the author just made him a quirkless preptime gadget-user instead of this potentially OP beta scrub.
I liked the point that they started bonding over their admiration for All might.
Also Deku should have shown Sir some of this notebooks to show him how can he help him, but Sir probably has all that info and lots more.
Right but he's not actually faster than Deku. He won't be able to clear the room quickly enough to stop Deku if Deku keeps switching his targets.
Actually an Anon already said what will probably happen. Foresight means he can see things that will happen, but presumably he doesn't have any other extra sensory abilities. Deku will beat him by talking, making him laugh and grabbing the stamp from his powerless fingers.
who hasn't been able to follow deku's moves so far? bakugou can easily read him, most villains did youtside maybe the hulk guy, all the teachers do as well.
He's fast "for a kid" but he's not "teleport behind you" fast at all. Humans can easily deal with things faster than them anyway. that's like 100% ball sports.
he can't know what the result of Deku's actions will be, for example he can know if deku is going to punch the wall, but he can't see if the roof is going to fall over them as a result, of course you don't need a quirk to know that but you get the point
technically if he has access to the whole time frame, he knows how deku reacts to each action as well. My guess is that the "timeline" is valid unless you make him break his concentration and restart a "time sample" again, hence why they really emphasis on laughs and surprise.
I'm not the same person, sorry.
I didn't say he was stronger, just that he was a pro with more combat experience, and not just your average joe with a fancy predicting quirk and nothing to back it up with. As a pro who was chosen by the best of best, he surely has more to offer than just "lel I can dodge you" .
>depend on others for recognition and improvement
so you're crying because the mc of a coming of age story isn't an accomplished ubermensch from the start
l think you might be an idiot
Five bucks on "If he goes unconscious/stops thinking/relies on instinct then I can't predict him"
that's not a plan, that's just wanton destruction
that's why Shiggy needs to get his shit together, if he keeps up like that someday a police-sniper might just shoot him
try to destroy an incoming bullet, bitch
I''m pretty sure OP was grapefag in the last thread and the thread was taken in the crossfire of banning him again.
This is assuming he's not secretly a master of CQC. This guy was All Might's sidekick, you'd expect him to also be a fighter of some sort since his mentor is a brawler.
We've been over this before. 8% was not enough to knock out Bakugou. I would argue that 8% doesn't significantly boost Deku's Durability to the point where above average human strength cannot phase him. Hence why Mirio, a human with a non body enhancing quirk, could gut punch him.
I actually think he's going to fail to get the stamp.
But it's good in a situation like this where your opponent is a melee fighter. It also still works well if you're able to predict opponents movements without the quirk (obviously this one is not perfect).
If I assume that Mirio learned his predictive abilities from Nighteye, I can assume that Nighteye is also able to actively predict the flow of a battle based on information and experience; his quirk just gives him a perfect read once he's completed the requirements.
>Mriro walks back into the office after the three minute mark
>Deku is sobbing over the destroyed merchandise.
>Sir's laughing like a madman because he didn't see it coming.
It'd be great.
Ok /a/. You find a time machine and decide to find Hori and give him a note telling him everything he plans to do with BnHA in the future. You also decide to give him another note with a list of things to do with the story instead so that it can be even better. What do you tell him?
Bonus: dubs becomes more likely to happen
>Rewrite Deku so that he isn't quirkless
>Instead give him Monoma's quirk
>Have him still made fun of cause the quirk is essentially useless without the help of others
>Give the side characters more screentime by having them tag along with Deku as partners so he can copy quirks
>Have his development be that he trains the quirk to last longer/copy more quirks
>AfO is still the villain, but there is no OfA, just an All Might as a teacher of good morals and positivity, maybe even the school counselor
>The final battle involves AfO and his many quirks vs. Deku and his eventual ability to copy the quirks of all his classmates at once
>Doing so is so stressful to his body though that it kills him
>Hailed as a true hero, inspiring others to not judge based on quirks alone, but how people use them
Additional ending possibility:
>Before he dies, Deku knocks up the love interest
>Child is someone who, instead of taking quirks to copy them, can only pass on her quirk to someone else
>Becomes the origin for OfA
Its Gomu Gomu no Boh all over again, isnt it?
Somehow, I can already think of some shitpost materials in this alternate universe.
Also, If I can go back, I'd make hori makes Pony more prominent and she never changes designs.
>Deku hasn't proved himself
So far he has saved Todoroki, Iida, Bakugou, All Might and the annoying kid. He has also inspired multiple (if not all) his classmates
>would just end up looking like he was handed everything on a silver platter.
The only thing he was handed was OfA. Everything else he did by himself.
The only reason Nighteye said that is because he doesn't know what Deku has gone through. We as the readers should know the exact reason why he is worthy.
Even if nighteye knew, he would most likely say Mirio has much better accomplishments. Of course that's just his bias opinion, the issue here is that Deku, to nighteye, possesses no qualities that make him better than mirio.
Honestly it's rather contrived, but still a necessary requirement, as from nighteye's point of view he was handed a quirk which he still cannot use effectively.
While I think he's more than worthy this point I don't think those points would stand even if he knew the full story.
This guy seems more realistic than idealistic, so running into danger without any powers doesn't benefit anyone but gives the bad guys another hostage.
Valid point, against an actual villain in a situation not in his favor at all. But not so much since I believe Stain was holding back against them since he was testing them or something?
If you mean the tournament that was a personal beef, good for him but doesn't quite contribute to his "society" standard.
See Bakugo, but despite having powers now he was up against to professional villains who could easily have captured and/or killed him had he fucked up.
All while making himself a dead weight for the rest of the arc.
Make no mistake, I see these as points in his favor, I just see where this guy is coming from with his high standards. During the licence exam they mentioned that a hero has to be constantly responsible for the situation. While Deku's feats are great thus far his grand gestures doesn't give him points in the big picture, more so when it's OfA on the line.
Or I could be wrong and he's intentionally taunting him to see what he can really do.
Do people who say Crocker's quirk is shit because it's useless unless he can touch the enemy forget about Stain?
Crocker could have the same fighting skills as him, and once he touches the enemy, could become unstopable. Being able to know exactly what your opponent is about to do is fucking insane if you are hayai.
Well maybe not right away, but Im assuming Nighteye is gonna see the potential Deku has that made All Might choose him over Mirio.
Also what are the chances that Mirio overhears that he lost the chance to get OfA to Deku? Im assuming that perhaps All Might had a reason for not giving it to Mirio?
I don't see why his reason would be any different than the one he give Deku in the hypothetical todoroki scenario, besides, he himself already said in a inner monologue that if he hadn't met Deku he would've given it to Mirio.
Perhaps there was a reason he was putting off giving it to mirio. Not something that would disqualify him outright but make All Might nervous about picking him.
I mean logicallu, does it make sense to give your super powers to a random quirkless kid who impressed you over a guy as strong and well trained as Mirio? One can see why Nighteye would be annoyed with All Might
Im assuming theres some aspect on Mirio's end that explains why All Might would choose Deku.
I really like these pages. Deku isn't just drawn bouncing in random directions, you can trace the path he takes. It even ends with him going from left to right, which is reflected in the last panel by the way his sweat and hair are flowing.
I liked it, Deku needs to fully realize that being number one is a nice goal but that heroes need more than that. He can't just try to be All Might, he has to find his own way of doing things. Also it makes sense that not everybody is gonna accept him as the heir easily.
Probably because it's just gonna end with him succeeding and then Foresight guy is just gonna say, "Hah, I knew you could do it all along" or "I foresaw that you would do it" or some other shit.
If he's actually surprised when Deku succeeds I'll eat a fucking shoe.
>Im assuming theres some aspect on Mirio's end that explains why All Might would choose Deku.
I kinda hope it's the opposite that Deku had something admirable for All Might. Also because I like Mirio and hope he doesn't turn out to be twisted guy.
Calling it here. Deku's going to use the merch as a hostage to get the stamp.
This makes me think.
The number of people that we know of who know about OfA's secret has been growing a lot recently.
How long until it becomes general knowledge? I mean sure, Bakugou is the only one who learned of it recently, but I bet Mirio finds out soon.
A bucket of paint
Side effects may include throbbing erections.
While i like it there isn't really that much tension in this chapter.
It's nice to se Deku get some selconfidence but other then character development there isn't really anything else to be excited about.
I mean, do you think he really isn't gonna get accepted by Sir? That's kinda what this arc is leaning towards.
I think he has to restrict Sir's movement so he won't be able to do anything. Restrict his hand and legs and it won't be easy to defend the stamp. He can't really do anything if he's pinned down unless he can dodge the enemy's attack.
However since he's a professional hero it won't be that simple.
The problem is Sir knows everything hes gonna do. Unless theres a drawback we aren't aware of yet, anything Deku tries on him, he will know about before hand.
Its a pretty broken sounding quirk. Of course Sir needs physical training to back it up, but its a pretty great quirk to have.
The other issue is Deku doesn't really have any other options. All Might probably won't give him any recommendations to anywhere else, and he didn't get any calls from anywhere else so if he strikes out here, he may have to go without an internship.
He wont accept that. He wants to become a worthy successor to All Might as soon as possible.
If he was turned down by All Might's former sidekick, that would probably be a huge blow to morale.
You still have a lot to learn, Grasshopper
>Not going over to her apartment to help her paint the walls or something

This could be explained by the characters we're seeing being professional heroes, people who are top of their classes, or established villains. You do need a quirk that is useful in order to succeed in those areas. Nobody with "minor attraction" like Deku's mom is going to be a hero.
Otherwise >>153537329 is right.
My guess is that he ran out of ideas for weird quirks and is now heading towards giving his characters absolutely bullshit powers
He literally gave Overhaul a better version of Shiggy's quirk
>He literally gave Overhaul a better version of Shiggy's quirk
I don't think they have the same powers
I believe that Overhaul hauls over organic material from others; think Momo, but in reverse
and he doesn't wear those gloves for protection but because of germs:
just how many germs could be on your PC-mouse right now?
It doesn't matter. The old generation is not very important because they don't get much focus. Villains will et stronger and stronger, same for class A and other young students.
Going by the tone of the setting before this arc, "I throw fire" is pretty fucking OP when the average quirk is more towards "I have horns" or "I can pull small objects towards myself" and another top-ranked hero's is "I can control cloth".
Some anon said it before. This is all Hori's fault for introducing so fucking many Quirks attached to tertiary characters. A name + design is more than enough for them. Moreover since we've got at least 20 known Quirks there's no point in writing yourself into a corner because of cannon fodder
How in the fuck do we not know what any of the other top heroes do or how they fight?
Where are all of the top villians? The villians alliance are basically a gaggle of low level faggots that don't amount to shit.
Was it really all just AfO?
Was he the top dick of the hill with no one else being even remotely close?
Also >Uraraka as the traitor girl and Tsuyu as romantic interest
What did you mean by this?
It's only been a few chapters since it was revealed the yakuza are still alive and kicking and consider the Villains' Alliance small potatoes
OfA literally reigned over ALL of the criminal underworld
It tends to attract people who aren't otherwise into anime, are really obsessive about it and think it is nothing short of a divine masterpiece. Basically the same reason Jojo is hated.
Also, since the whole board has a certain disdain for shonen (though I don't think the shit this board consistently eats up is any better) shonen fans tended to congregate into generals before the new mod declared that to be forbidden. There was tribalism of sorts in that most the fanbases theoretically thought shonen was generally shit but the shonen THEY liked was good.
But that's fucking insane. There should be something akin to an actual villianous threat or super powered terrorists/criminal mobs or gangs something.
AfO was thought to be fucking dead though. There should be more public super villians out there.
It's basically a military/cop academy. Them not knowing about villians or villian organizations or how to deal with criminals with powers is ridiculous.
There's been ONE single fucking class that dealt with that if I'm mistaken. One.
Super villains in the usual sense literally don't exist. Neither does organized crime in the way we know it. Nobody was stupid enough to do that when All Might was active. That's been an important plot point for several arcs.
>Was he the top dick of the hill with no one else being even remotely close?
>Neither does organized crime in the way we know it.
It does. But they most are hidden because All Might. Even when he was active there was the broker. Overhaul is one of the eight kings or something. Many are in prison.
Still, it makes little sense for there not to be a villian version of the popular well known hero's or for a villian to have it set up so that they can't be prosecuted normally.
>in the way we know it
Barely existent, strictly secretive under all situations without exception and universally ruled over by a single guy is pretty different from real crime
>Perhaps there was a reason he was putting off giving it to mirio
They just hadn't met yet.
The Principle picked Mirio out as a candidate, and then All Might was going to start teaching at UA to observe and train him.
But then he met Midoriya first, and decided to do his training and pass OfA to him, before Mirio even got his chance to prove himself to All Might.
>people thinking it should have gone to Mirio
You niggas are literally so blind as to see all the flags hanging off him? He's literally the paragon good guy turned villain trope walking around.
It's an inevitability that he goes bad.
>taken a liking to this kid
Was Bubble girl talking about mirio or deku?
First of all, the people with OP quirks are people that you'd expect to have them. Sir was one of Allmight's sidekicks and is quirk isn't even that good. Mirio's power is OP and we don't know how Overhaul's quirk works.
It would be different if it was just a bunch of random citizens with OP powers.
I had this argument with a friend who actually reads the manga regularly, and he wasn't able to answer any of my questions. Perhaps you lot will do better.
>Deku can only tap into a small percentage of One For All's power, but why is it he still has such a massive problem with not dying every time he uses the power if he was supposed to adjust to it? All Might seems confused by this too.
>All Might states that the power, once it is passed on from one person to another is meant to improve the upper limit of power available to the user. This means that when All Might received the power he could only use a small amount to start off, like Deku, he even says this when he gives him the hair. Therefore wouldn't the previous holder, Nana, at the end when she swapped powers have been as strong as weakened All Might? (Prior to him losing all reserves of One For All.) Therefore, why does everyone act like All Might is was incredibly special? As Nana should have been able to make just as big of an impact as All Might during her own peak, in comparison to his trough. Further, why does no one seem to address the elephant in the room that when Nana fell out, and All Might stepped in no one put the correlation together?
>If the upperlimit continuously is meant to increase with each passing of the person (plus time compounding the growth), then once again, shouldn't Deku be receiving the other perks that come One For All in an actually noticeable manner? Meaning endurance, and resilience for instance. So far all he seems to be getting out of it is super strength that fucks up his whole body.
Tell me in what way he does not give off that vibe? I've read too much of this shit to not see his sudden shift coming from a mile away.
What do you honestly think is going to happen? That Mirio will just continue to be an overpowered idiot without adding any sort of antagonistic value to the plot? There's a reason you add guys like this to the plot.
So that they become villains and everyone has to work together to put a stop to him, OR he dies tragically in order to act as a power check for another new villain. Those are the two reasons and two reasons only why a guy like this exists.
Nana presumably kept a relatively low profile, All Might was the only one who went full ham with the "symbol of peace" shit. Nana even calls him a maniac on his conversation with Gran Torino on the flashback
I think he'd have to try and work a lot harder than that to lose Bakugou's respect at this juncture.
The latter seems more possible. With the whole Sir sidekick arc coming up there's going to be the inevitable bonding/parallels between Mirio/Deku. So Villains come and Mirio has a showdown with either Overhaul or Shigaraki, loses and is either cripple or dies.
Now stakes are upped and shit starts to get intense.
Remember Mirio told Deku that it was important he had to make Sir laugh.
He failed to do so and Sir mentioned this and still decided to give him a chance.
Bubble Girl asked Mirio if Sir ever interviewed him like that and Mirio said no thus confirming that Sir has taken a weird liking to Deku.
>they engage on a All Might spergout contest instead
Really making All Might's reason of him and Sir breaking up kind of bull shit.
>>Deku can only tap into a small percentage of One For All's power...
He doesn't have any real sense of self preservation or body awareness. He's an all or nothing kind of person and really doesn't care that he's almost killing himself.
All might didn't spend enough time training him in basic physical fitness or how to pull back and give his body enough to work with.
He's constantly on the verge of destroying his own body with his quirk and instead of working with his body he's using OfA to push his already weakened body well beyond it's limits. The electricity crackling off of his frail body as if it's something that can't be contained by it, the constant broken bones and ruined joints, the lack of a bulked form that AM has. This tells you all you need to know. He's placing too much faith in the OfA and its power and no faith in his self or ability to add to or become one with it.
>>All Might states that the power, once it is passed on from one person...
The power is multiplicative and boosts the power of whomever wields it and masters it. The people who make it their own, add to it and believe in themselves are often granted the most power by it.
Nana was probably a more peaceful pensive sort who shunned the spotlight and never once pushed the power and by extension herself to it's true limit or beyond.
>>If the upperlimit continuously is..
OfA multiplies what the person wants out of it not just everything.
Deku only wants the thing that allmight has. Strength and the ability to do something noble and good with it.
He doesn't care about getting hurt or protecting his own body. He cares about helping people and the strength that allmight displayed.
Which is why he's a total paper tiger.
He'll never be able to fully access the same level of power allmight displayed or anything else because he'll never be his own hero. Just a poor imitation of ll might. And Mirio is doing a better job of being Allmight then he ever has.
But at the end of the day the whole point of passing on that ability is to create somebody that can stop all for one. Why wouldn't you give to somebody who already has a very strong quirk?
>He'll never be able to fully access the same level of power allmight displayed or anything else because he'll never be his own hero. Just a poor imitation of ll might. And Mirio is doing a better job of being Allmight then he ever has.
This seems counter to the whole, "And this is how I became the world's greatest hero" line.
>Really making All Might's reason of him and Sir breaking up kind of bull shit
did All Might ever state why they broke up?
All I remember is him saying they broke up, and it seems like Denzel still adores him as a hero
All might explained un a previews issue the brake up was because of himself being ashamed about something Sir warned him about that ended happening. Mirio said Sir would welcome him anyway but it was All Might who felt akward about it.
>not understand he's meant to be Captain America but with a brick's powerset, literally
How do you not get this? Fuck save, All Might even dresses like Captain America and looks like Steve Rogers pre-serum.
>But at the end of the day the whole point of passing on that ability is to create somebody that can stop all for one
No, it was to foster a legacy. All for One was still presumed dead at the point that Deku got One for All.
In what way?
Deku has potential to become a great hero, simply doing a bad job of mimicing another hero and destroying himself in the process isn't the path to becoming a great hero.
It's the path to becoming a jaded monster or dead.
He knows where Deku is going to strike so he starts moving before Deku is in range to grab. Deku doesn't have the reaction time to adjust and even if he did Sir already knows what he plans to do.
>He'll never be able to fully access the same level of power allmight displayed or anything else because he'll never be his own hero. Just a poor imitation of ll might. And Mirio is doing a better job of being Allmight then he ever has.
It's blatantly obvious that everyone is telling Deku to get his own style. That's why All Might recommended he train his Shoot Style over becoming a sidekick. Deku will eventually become his own hero, there are developments here and there that point to it. Mirio will be another influence in this arc.
And that is how you overcome people with precognition or good analysis.
By being faster and more overwhelming in terms of power.
They had an entire thing in this very comic between deku and baku where baku just overcame his predictions with just pure power and skill.
Hell, there was this great panel in Soul Eater where kilik rung was up against someone who could see the future. And then kilik put on his gloves/pots whatever and asked him what he saw in his future. And the future-seer said I can't beat you before kilik slugs him.
BUT the future teller guy seems like the kind of person that deku should learn from. His power is basically useless BUT with training analysis and the right kind of weapons it can be beyond overpowered against all but the most broken as fuck quirk holders and in the most FUBAR situations.
>OfA multiplies what the person wants out of it not just everything
OfA multiplying Nature was from user to user, meaning that the next user is exponentially stronger than the older one, also it has never been refered to as any other type of quirk than a stockpiling power one which mean it can only amplify physical aspects, the issue with Deku is that his body is not ready for that type of backlash yet.
>The problem is Sir knows everything hes gonna do.
Yep, exactly. I thought if only there was a way for Deku to restrain his movement but Sir won't let that happen since he knows everything anyway.
IMO it's more about social justice rather than just convenience. It's the only way a Quirkless person could become as powerful as natural born Quirky people.
We lack more information about AfO's reign of terror tho.
Most likely after this internship. Tactician Deku is best Deku.
IMHO the manga needs some kind of graphic feature asserting Deku's tactical mode. Sometimes it feels a little underwhelming just reading lines of mumbling and mumbling and mumbling.
He doesn't need gadgets. Not really.
He at best needs to have slightly below marvel cap america tier physical capability and occasionally use slight bursts of OfA to increase his strength speed or endurance or durability but at the cost of heavy physical damage.
And keep the 100% OfA under wraps.
Deku literally says this, what we are seeing is just the narrative as to how he achieved his (future) status as the world's greatest hero.
Therefore, we are being told by Deku that at some point the future he surpasses All Might in status.
It's probably one of those things where Sir doesn't put any of his real valuable All Might collection on display. Once Deku passes and apologizes for ripping a poster Sir will probably just yank another one out of his desk or show Deku a room filled with more shit.
That or it's another part of the test to see if he can grab the stamp and minimize damage to the surroundings of his own volition.
He's not shown anything except strength that looks to be far more then his body can handle and basically crackles out of him like lightning.
He hasn't shown increased durability or above normal endurance.
I stand by what I said.
It increases the base attributes that a person physically and mentally concentrates on and trains.
Deku doesn't care about getting hurt, thus he's as flimsy as tissue. He doesn't care about lasting, because he thinks he can just punch through people even breaking every bone in his body to do it. He's just a paper tiger.
Just because deku can use ofa at the level he's at now doesn't mean that he should. He's obviously not mastered the lower percentage yet and is almost always in a state of nearly breaking something or ripping his muscle from his bone.
If he can stay at 5% 24/7 without thinking about it maybe, just maybe he can tap into higher levels of OfA temporarily without killing himself or becoming permanently crippled.
That's just my headcanon and the way I see it.
>He didn't watch TTGL
Meh, it's a manga.
They are guaranteed to go his way anyway.
Hori seems to be structuring the story to be long-term, and maximize profitability. A la Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, etc. The typical genres pieces.
It's an inevitability that this would occur, whether or not he included that line. If anything, all Hori did was say: "Hey, this isn't going to be a short-story." If the manga was planned to be a short series, I could imagine a scenario where things didn't work out for Deku but since he's going long-term it was going to happen anyway.
In comics, this is just known as keeping the status quo. Status quo demands that Superman saves the day. Status quo demands that Batman figure out how to disarm the bomb. And since Academia is just a comic book parody, you shouldn't expect anything else.
Because it's a power that gets stronger with the person who wields it and uses it.
Also because deku knows what it means to be weak and powerless he also sees quirks as a gift and is willing to hurt himself to help others.
He wouldn't misuse or take the power for granted and become corrupted by it. He found a pure hearted person to pass his considerable power along too. And because he thought the world was mostly peaceful and that he'd have all the time in the world to help train him, he gave it to a kid who he saw as having a lot of potential. Someone who would safeguard it and use it wisely.
Now he has to throw him into a terrible world with powerful villians and great dangers around every corner and he's no longer Allmight.
>It's the only way a Quirkless person could become as powerful as natural born Quirky people.
I get that but people here seem apposed to the logic of giving OfA to someone with a quirk. From a pragmatic sense a empowered Mirio is better than a single deku.
The quirks in MHA develop very early in life. More or less before long-lasting memories form. We know for a fact that some people develop theirs before memories even really form in the first place.
The point of passing on OfA onto someone without a Quirk is because that person knows what it means to be powerless, and have to rely on others to protect them. And try to just do their best on a day to day basis. Whereas if OfA was passed on to someone who a Quirk, especially if that person was gifted a strong one, this sense of entitlement becomes normalized. Now if you suddenly give that person even more power, they'll risk taking this massive mantle of responsibility for granted.
OfA is literally the Quirk version of Uncle Ben's speech to Peter Parker. And you saw what happened when Peter didn't act responsibly, and respond nobly in the face of ignoble characters.
All Might was Steve Rogers looking for another Steve Rogers to pass on the shield and super soldier serum to.
At the point in time when All Might began training Deku as his successor, Mirio couldn't even use his own quirk. He would have been at the start of his second year, just beginning his internship with Sir. There would have been no point in choosing him at that point in time.
The recommendation for Mirio came before Deku was found. So he must have been doing something right at that point.
By that logic. Someone who has a quirk that requires intense training to use, as well as forcing the user to be aware of their body would also be ideal because they would better understand how to control the flow of strength through them.
I don't disagree that this is a spiderman situation. But I can't pretend that by and large, quirkEd people are poorer choices for this ability.
It really doesn't. 8% of all might should be the equivalent of a nigh world class strongman and sprinter and marathon runner who wears something that gives him enough durability to tank being punched by a normal person or advanced quirkless martial artist with ease.
The fight between them not being fairly onesided when it comes to physical strength is beyond bullshit.
Perhaps, but I think the point is to find someone morally good, that knows of a time without having a quirk, and not just someone dedicated to maximizing the effectiveness of their quirk.
I understand what you are saying, but if someone is simply looking to better themselves... they aren't really taking into account the betterment of others.
This is the entire job of a superhero, and it's why some of the people who want to be superheros are fundamentally bad superheroes, regardless of how strong they might be.
If their attitude is built around selfishness, if they are just seeking attention, or they just want the opportunity to beat people up. You aren't good material, it's as simple as that.
This is a good moral conundrum that's explored in comics quite frequently.
When you're dealing with power on the scale of OfA, it becomes a Superman scenario. Lex Luthor hates Superman with everything in his being, but he also does what he does because he points out rightfully that Superman could kill them all without a second thought and that's he too dangerous to let live.
This is the eventual problem that OfA will force to come to pass. The only potential way to mitigate it is to look for people who are too pure of heart to do anything bad. Like Wally West.
The first time he uses Full Cowl in front of his classmates he seemingly leaps dozens of feet into the air, and that was 8%. Even what little he can access should be downright superhuman
Most likely it was Hori not thinking it through and giving him 5% to start with because it sounded small
It says his quirk works by "matching his gaze with theirs", so maybe he can't use it anymore once Deku breaks eye contact? Maybe his gran torino dashing accidentally does this
Reminder that Nana had a Quirk and decided to give OfA to a Quirkless person.
Sir's power is wonky.
He might know all possible movements that his opponent might make, but doesn't this get tossed aside as a result of whatever movements he makes in response?
It seems to disrupt the whole notion of predictability.
The whole hype around Mirio is that he is everything you want except quirkless from birth. He's honest, elevates his peers, insightful, and determined. A lot of people in these threads have pointed out how much more personable he is that Deku, even if his routines sometimes fall flat. Barring a sudden death or twist Mirio is exactly as written. The next best candidate for this power, but ultimately not chosen because All Might saw in Deku a reflection of himself.
Also keep in mind Mirio didn't nominate himself. Nor has he been shown to be so self serving or arrogant that he couldn't be considered a candidate.
This >>153542009 and
>What was Dr Manhattan
Thing is we can assume that All Might was the one who actually exploited OfA at its full capacity becoming "The symbol of Peace" in the process.
Maybe AM made a mistake in picking a Quirkless person over a new OP All Might or maybe don't. Who are we to judge.
Ochako is pure! PURE!
There is no reason to be upset.
One for All isn't about making the strongest hero.
It doesn't need another quirk to make it better. All Might went from powerless to the greatest and strongest superhero with it.
The Quirk is centered around pooling the power of the masses into one person who then in turn uses it to protect and help society. The point is that you give it to someone who appreciates this power for what it is, both a gift and a responsibility. And no one in the series has that level of appreciation more than one who was weak and powerless.
I'm sure there are many people at the school with the same level of drive Deku has to be the top hero, in fact we've seen them, but there's not a one who knows the feeling of wanting to be standing at the top but unable due to something you can't help.
The mentality of the hero is just as important as the abilities they hold. That's the theme the manga keeps trying to drive home. I'm sure Mirio would be a perfectly acceptable top hero, but he would never feel the same weight from the ability that Deku does.
I love how Deku's learning and mimics fighting moves and styles and adds it to his own array of moves.
Why midoriya don't simply close his eyes?
I didn't know what to make of Nighteye but he was pretty good this chapter, Basically not coddling Deku like All Might did.
Someone who can't help themselves and doesn't think of themselves at least a little can't help anyone.
The first tool allmight should have given him was self respect. He's good hearted and kind but he lacks nobility and the kind of strength that will let him shoulder the burden of that power and what it means.
He's a good choice but he's not the right kind of hero the world needs.
My prediction is that Deku will use the All Might merchandise against Nighteye, specifically the poster (Nighteye said he doesn't care what happens to the room, but probably cares about the merchandise). At some point in the fight the inker will fall out of Nighteye's hands, but before he can pick it up, Deku throws some damaging object at the limited edition All Might poster, and Nighteye blindly chooses to save that, instead of grabbing the inker. Or Deku realizes the eye condition.
>menwhile the guy with the most useful quirk gets no screentime, even when we thought he was gonna get promoted
They keep that fucking guy on 24/7 watch and have a kill on sight order for anyone who they even suspect is on AfO's payroll.
Can you imagine that horrifying ability in his hands? Or worse, that guy who can just tell people to do something and they'll do it?
Fucking bullshit broken.
>not the right kind of hero the world needs
Deku had a natural selflessness, to save the bully who told him to kill himself in the same chapter, once he saw the fear in Bakugou's eyes as he was getting taken by the slime monster villain
That natural sense to put someone's life in front of your own, and on someone quirkless nonetheless, is what made All might choose him as his successor.
Deku is aware that he lacks the charisma and power presently, but he's taking responsibility to build himself as All Might's successor.
And unlike his whiny ass before, ever since he fought Bakugou, his confidense is finally steadily building up. He was able to not ponder on how weak he is, even after Nighteye's comments. Post tournament Deku would have been shaken. Remember, he's going to hero school in order to become the best hero he can be. That's the point of the manga
He'll become the hero the world needs
Well, I imagine Hori won't stray from his usual road of cliches and end it up with Deku doing it just and Nightwing saying something like he still thinks Mirio is the better candidate, but he's willing to give Deku a chance to prove himself. The question is whether he'll manage to look such a typical scene, that goes by in every shonen several times, impressive or not.
>That line was the biggest of Hori's mistakes
how? we get to see how he achieves his goal. Also nothing is guaranteed to go his way. There will be sacrifices and deaths he might witness along the way.
Hell, Almight lost half his stomach fighting All for One. Deku almost losing his arm is not "things going his way". He's not going to die because he has main character plot armor, but aside that it doesn't guarantee everything going his way.
In the case he is 100% sure, to deny without proof is something a shitty and illogical person would do. So he gives him the opportunity for Deku to see himself that he's unable to pass his test.
How can you fail something without trying it?
It's a shonen manga, dude, there is literally no way things can't go protagonist's way. At worst he may lose some tertiary support character, but you don't even need to start reading it to know that in the end main character will achieve his dream, will be acknowledged as best of the best and possibly pass on his torch to some kid that will resemble him a lot, often even his own kid.
How can he achieve it without All might dying? He has to properly inherit the mantle. Just look at the other side, unless All for one die, Tomura has no chance of being final boss.
I don't get prediction powers when the precog doesn't have some super-speed. Even if Sir knows what Deku is doing Deku moves at superhuman speeds and Sir is just a normal human physically.
>I don't get prediction powers when the precog doesn't have some super-speed
If you know where someone is going to be at a certain instance in time then you don't need super speed to react.
It's also a matter of Deku's 7/8% full cowl still not being good enough.
Especially when Mirio and Sir can fend him off.
I'm fairly sure Toshinori met All Milf when he was a kid. There was a flashback panel of him as a schoolboy explainign his idea about becoming a symbol. And there was a panel of Gran Torino teaching him when he was a teenager and not buff, meaning Nana died when he was quite young.
I'm fairly sure Sir is a capable fighter besides his ability, he was an All might's sidekick after all. Eraser said way back at the start that you can't be a hero with just your quirk.
Really? That makes it more interesting then.
You would think she would pass on OfA to another quirk user but she instead passed it on to a younger quirkless user.
Even All Might's sidekick thought it was a dumb idea to pass it on to Deku (Sir should be aware that he was quirkless).
I'm guessing something drastic affected her decision.
Well perhaps it needs to be something Deku says, not does.
He may be able to predict Deku's movements, but I don't think he can read Deku's mind.
So Deku needs to think of something clever to say or do that isn't necessarily a physical movement.
I'm half convinced hes gonna just ask for the stamp at the end, and Sir is gonna laugh at the audacity.
I assume he got OfA about the same age Deku did since he went to the same school. He wouldn't have been able to get in with no quirk, so he had to have been about the same age as Deku if not younger.
I'm pretty sure she chose All might because he wanted to not just be a hero, but become the pillar of society. Also I doubt OfA users care all that much about passing it to people with quirks, the whole thing started with a quirkless person, well, technically with a quirk, but his quirk didn't really do anything other than mutated OfA into transmittable quirk.
Deku =\= all might
Based on everything we know so far All Might was literally the perfect hero candidate except for powers. He was good natured, fit, charismatic, had a plan, etc. Deku doesn't have half of that. From an in universe perspective he's objectively inferior to Mirio in just about every way.
Oh damn, I'm rereading that chapter
>The UA sports festival has somehow overtaken the Olympics in importance in Japan.
Wonder if that means other major countries have their own equivalent event or whether Japan just decided to not care about the olympics anymore.
Honestly, Id expect the introduction of quirks to make the olympics more interesting. Though I guess it would also make the playing field much more uneven
he's pretty hot with a serious face
also what did he mean by this
"A quirk that stockpiles power" is a weird way to describe superstrength.
How would that quirk even work by itself given the brother was weak to begin with.
Why would AfO not give him superstrength outright or some mediocre quirk if he wanted to bend him to his will?
He did give him superstrenght, OfA pretty much allows the user to stack up power to impossible levels, it's just that brother turned out to had a very specific quirk of being able to transfer his quirk, which is a useless logical loop, but when he received the superstrength from OfA the quirks mutated into one.
And just by its track record, the OfA had been with six people(or something like that, I don't remember the number All might said) and one of them is known for sure to had a quirk, yet all it does is powerup.
A stockpiling and multiplying quirk isn't all that scary if only 1 person gets it for 1 lifetime. The nature of the quirk would also make his brother get stronger quicker, which might have made him feel indebit to AfO. Being passed down through generations through superheroes is what makes OfA scary. It'll eventually become planet buster strong
>but when he received the superstrength from OfA the quirks mutated into one.
>one of them is known for sure to had a quirk, yet all it does is powerup.
So we do know that for one instance it did combine with another quirk to create OfA.
Now we just need to find out what the quirk of All Might's master was.
I just wouldn't be surprised if Deku found out he can use another quirk in a shocking plot-twist.
The noumus give the impression that giving people more quirks than they're supposed to have will created fucked up results, but AfO himself seems to avoid any issues
Maybe the real issue is having multiple active quirks and the latent quirks picked up over OfA transfers simply can't be accessed while the super strength is still "on"
All Might was clearly lying through his teeth in that panel. Although there's likely not anything to do with their past quirks, I fully expect the past OFA users to interact with Deku at some point in the future.
they say if you listen to the air you can hear hori laughing manically because /a/ is never gonna figure out what he's up to until it's too late.
That was because Hori was probably going to kill off all might but changed his mind. Recovery girl asked AM "but he saw your image too" in a way that indicated AM would die once the OfA flames went out in him
so basically AfO is, you can steal other peoples quirks and give other people quirks that you have stolen but not AfO and you can merge other peoples quirks
and OfA has the power to give your own quirk to somebody else
the only reason why OfA has "stockpiling power" is because of AfO's quirk
and no matter who it is given to, it will not merge with that persons quirk
Stop relying MS for translation.
i can understand if you would say that the merging of the two quirks was weird, but the power of the brother was rather logical if you think about it, he could basically do the only thing the older brother could not. that is, he could pass on his own quirk
AfO can steal others quirks and can pass on those quirks to other people, but he can't pass on his own quirk
