This is Deku.
I kinda like the concept of him owning the name and through his actions changing the meaning of the word. Kinda like how Einstein used to mean dull stone or something and now it's synonymous with genius.
Wow, so he really did just let a little girl escape. Well, at least Shiggy is on board with his overly elaborate and expensive "New Age of Villains" plan.
Damn son. Props to deku for reacting how a proper hero would.
Also holy shit, overhaul is merciless.
>First day on the job
>nearly get everyone killed
Nigga it's gonna be "Shiggy uses Overhaul to fuck Overhaul AND benefit from Overhaul's plan"
Storywise though, he has too.
I just hope that, when overhaul does get defeated by shiggy whatever way he does, he still remains a recurring villain in the story.
Hell maybe further down the line, Shiggy and Overhaul will work together like Shiggy and Blackmist or Shiggy and Dabi. Its been so long since we've seen those two, I wonder why?
I got a Mirio dying words imagined in my head
>Well Deku, I may not be able to save a million people, but I know I can save you
>I hope this isn't too much to ask, even though it probably is
>could you make sure save a million people in my place on your way to #1, I know you can do it
What do you mean? Doesn't he wear gloves to limit his power?
Also Overhaul is obviously meant to fight Glitchboy, but for the heroes to know how Overhaul power works they need to see it, meaning some has to die, if he uses it on one of his fillermen in front of them I'll call bullshit. Or maybe the girl who seems to know how it works will tell them about it.
I don't think you get to say much of anything when you explode like a pizza party
Dabi is probably doing whatever he needs to do to keep his undead body alive
>yes, I think he's a zombie/undead
and Blackmist is probably in a coma thanks to that one hero who fucked up his internal organs
Who wouldn't be.
Looks the part.
Slowly acting the part.
Easily been the best villain so far, Obviously having that god like quirk helps too.
I just realized how good of a matchup it would be for shindou.
Just pretend to cough or something to get overhaul to respond and bam captured.
Then again, he could do that to every villain, save moonfish.
Shiggy has yet to fuck over other villains so he's going probably gonna betray (assuming the team up) and BTFO Overhaul at one point.
This is TECHNICALLY the second time he's been burned by another villain so it would be fitting if he stopped being a pussy. "Leader of evil" doesn't fit him if other villains just walk all over him and live.
Yes but Mirio has an extra deathflag, he's the second person to have a shitload of deathflags. Pulling another "Symbolic" death wouldnt work for him.
He's gonna die horrifically and I cant wait. Not because I dont like him or anything, but because when it happens these threads will explode.
He was faced with a notorious criminal in a situation that was completely unexpected. I think you did a much better job than Deku. This was not a fun situation, but the best answer was put as much distance between them and overhaul and report back to the boss. Their safety does take a priority in this situation because you can't save anyone if you're dead. Deku pressing the matter and creating a situation where they needed to follow overhaul into that dark alley was a really dumb decision.
I liked it because it's a good reminder of why Deku was chosen. Mirio wasn't inherently wrong he was just focused on a different goal and I'd say it's because of Sir. Mirio is focused on being able to capture Overhaul and put him away and they aren't ready to do that yet. So drawing attention to yourself from the guy you're investigating is a bad idea as Sir probably taught him. Deku doesn't have that teaching though and he's going off pure instinct which for him is "heroic as fuck gotta save everybody". Ironically Sir's mentorship could be the very reason that Mirio is lacking the essence of a hero.
Shiggy and Stain arent the same. Shiggy hates all heroes while stain loves real heroes. Stain just has extremely strict standards and kills anyone he thinks doesnt live up to them
Man, i wonder if overhaul had a hard childhood. Having a quirk that makes people explode.
Is there more to it than that tho? In his first chapter, one of those thug's face got fused with a tire after he was done with them
Strength is irrelevant, hero will always try to help no matter how little chance he has. The whole story started because Deku tried to fight enemy he had no chance of beating, just because Bakugou needed help.
This is true. I'm not saying Deku was in the right here but he was showing the kind of spirit that got him chosen in the first place. Deku wouldn't have been much good against mukman but that didn't stop him from trying to sane bakugou. I just think it's interesting that through Sir Mirio has become the much better trained professional hero who was cool under pressure unlike deky but Sir couldn't teach him the one fundamental thing that All Might values above all else.
Yes, but the one to solve the actual problem was the guy with the power to do so. I'm not saying his mentality is wrong, but if he can't actually save anyone all he's doing is adding more risk to the situation.
This is his character flaw in my opinion. The mind is willing, but the body is not fully able yet.
Midoriya's still in that phase where aspirations trump common sense
He's been pulling stunts like this since the beginning but I think it's getting to the point where his naivety may end up getting somebody killed soon
Can I get some sources on this?
Ein stein literally means one stone.
As far as I know Einstein as an insult has only been used sarcastically to indicate that someone is stupid.
I want to see if Overhaul can do anything else interesting
if his quirk is mostly just "blow up people I touch" it's already too similar to Shiggy's own to be worth keeping, no?
>Guy who looks like an escher painting
Why is deku such a shit?
All Might wouldn't have abandoned the little kid.
This would have been the perfect moment to show that Deku is the better successor, because he isn't as pragmatic as the other guy and would rather save the girl.
Too bad they decided to get retarded and follow the bad guy into an alley.
Can we get a new protagonist? This one sucks
Yup. He's the Cedric to Deku's Harry. Dead as shit, probably by he end of this arc.
Then again Hori has been very reluctant to kill characters until these last few chapters but now it seems like the gloves are off (literally)
And what, try to fight overhaul and save eri and get both of them killed?
You honestly think deku and mirio would have stood a chance against overhaul without knowing what his quirk is? We dont know if its reciprocal, maybe mirio can phase through every single one of his attacks, but the moment he'd hit his face or make contact with his skin he could have been dead.
If through some contrived reason they did wind up beating him and saving eri, then you'd be screaming asspull at the top of your lungs.
Was anyone else confused by the fact that Mirio openly acknowledged Overhaul as a member of the precepts of death? It seems suspicious for a hero to recognize a member of a criminal organization and not do anything about it.
I suppose maybe I don't understand the Japanese cultural perception of Yakuza though.
I just meant that before Albert Einstein all that name meant was a stone but after him that name has taken on a completely different meaning. Didn't mean to imply that Einstein itself was used as an insult.
>Was anyone else confused by the fact that Mirio openly acknowledged Overhaul as a member of the precepts of death?
I'm reading the situation as one of two ways. The first is that the Yakuza are very open about what they do, the second is that this is a case of memorabilia leak into the common population just like people wearing stain masks.
Given what I knowe about Italian mobs though, I would assume the former and the 8 precepts are a local group that are publicly known to an extent.
Deku both wants to go in fight anyway and also knows that if he comes off as too unconcerned that'll also make overhaul realise something is up.
Deku was right and Mirio was wrong on how he wanted to handle it.
So is there a likely chance that Afo has some special long range quirk transfer ability and has already given shiggy his ability to steal?
I really like overhaul but it seems like hes either going to die or lose his ability
Yeah and that's what Sir will probably say if this gets brought up to him but what do you think All Might's opinion would be? Deku's actions here are exactly why All Might took a shine to the kid.
>Given what I knowe about Italian mobs though, I would assume the former and the 8 precepts are a local group that are publicly known to an extent.
I mean that part doesn't surprise me, what was weird is that Mirio didn't seem to act like greeting him with "oh you're a member of that famous organized crime group!" and not acting on it was suspicious for a hero.
Are Yakuza so deeply ingrained in Japanese society that they're allowed to act with impunity? I remember when I visited my friend in Japan he didn't shop at the cheaper grocery store because it was supposedly well known that it had Yakuza ties.
>Deku was right and Mirio was wrong on how he wanted to handle it.
This isn't a mutually exclusivery decision anon. Deku is right that not showing concern, or trying to help is suspicious and un-hero-like. But he is wrong about trying to intervene in this scenario because he will definitely die.
Mirio is right to be wary and try to break things off to report back. But wrong to want to abandon a person clearly in need of help.
Both parties have solid arguments for and against; however I agree more with Mirio in this case. Being reckless doesn't help anyone and it's more important to not tip overhaul off to the fact that heroes are looking for him. Eri is tragic but it wasn't the best time to try and save her.
>Eri is weaponized
Oh I remember this. They're gonna cut her liver out because it's a bomb.
I actually think Deku did a bad move at the benining looking all worried, but the next part was right. If a hero seems something fishy is natural to attend it, if they retreated after seeing that, Overhaul would have suspected a lot more.
Btw, little girl choose to return to the torture chamber so Deku and Mirio can live. She already a better girl than Ochako
The Yakuza are seen as a "necessary evil" and generally a part of the community for the service the bring to society (regulating crime and keeping it standardized). They're tolerated in a lot of what they do, and even do shit like give back to the community during disaster relief situations.
>First patrol duty.
>Nighteye is already stalking him out.
>Deku starting shit already.
He's actually a fucking idiot.
The whole fucking case didn't make sense anyways
>Oh we totally know he's a criminal actively working with a shadowy ominous-sounding organization (which is also apparently public knowledge) and that he met up with the League of Villains and gruesomely killed someone there, but we still don't have proof that he has done anything :^)
When the Yakuza has been as dangerous as a toothless senile dog for years and following the law, yes it would be weird for rookie heroes to react that way. Mirio played it off by claiming they recognized the mask rather than the person wearing it.
They know he's Yakuza. The criminal aspect of which was destroyed by heroes. They can call themselves whatever they want. Sir knows they made contact and he knows there was apparently a battle there but he has no evidence of any wrongdoing. Heroes aren't above the law
That's actually a good point. They probably cleaned up. But then the more troubling aspect is that the legal system in MHA is anal enough that knowing he met with the League of Villains wasn't enough to detain him.
>Sir knows they made contact and he knows there was apparently a battle there
>Oh yeah we know this guy met up with some gangsters at graveyard hours and that there was a fight but we need more proof to do something
With no proof all they can do is detain him for a day and put his guard up since he'll know he's being monitored
>Oh yeah we know this guy met up with some gangsters at graveyard hours and that there was a fight but we need more proof to do something
Yes that's how it works in reality if you have 0 eyewitnesses of the events in the graveyard.
No, not really. Police in the US can detain you for up to 2 weeks without charges if you're suspected of terrorism, and for up to 3 days if you're suspected of something like murder
Holy crap, I didn't knew that, murder seems ok, but terrorism seems something Saudi Arabia tier police
But I agree, this was something that a random hero would have detained OH. Girl literally saved the two All Might successors at once
Not at first, but he wouldn't have let him take Eri away, which would mean OH would fight back.
This was almost the only possibility that implied a hero surviving, she had the bad luck of encounter the only heroes there with an agenda with OH.
>Under Japanese law, persons suspected of a crime can be detained for 23 days without charge. The length of detention, up to the maximum period, is at the discretion of the public prosecutor and subject to the approval of local courts.
>is at the discretion of the public prosecutor and subject to the approval of local courts.
>AKA it's not happening to some random Yakuza guy with 0 evidence or any chance of getting evidence because he's being detained and can't do anything suspicious while in custody
>The Yakuza are seen as a "necessary evil"
Which is bullshit, one of the reasons I hate the way Nisekoi ended.
Not the same anon, but I think that there are moments where heroes must act immediately, detaining OH would have an authorization, but rescuing Eri in the act would have been ok
Given how strict laws seem to be I doubt this is the case. Assuming vigilantes is canon heroes can't even stop quirk less people from fighting.
Either way. Deku isn't even a full hero so he definitely has no authority to detain anyone.
I think the S5 for that show has been green lit.
I mean he looks straight up shady regardless, Deku trying to play hero straight away is just nonsense. Mirio pretty much saved his life cause no way Deku does anything to Overhaul one on one.
I like how over time hori is improving the outfits one way or another. His old outfits hood looked stupid and tight. Especially considering he had a lot of hair. Then you had those huge ugly ears. I'm guessing one of his assistants browses 4ch/2ch and checked up on things to improve and he cut down the hears and added a back hole for the hair
Good thing All Might's sidekick isn't as dumb as you then.
>no evidence of anything to charge him with
>He's eventually released but now knows to keep his guard up because some heroes are watching him.
>Watch an unknowing Overhaul, get evidence, actually prosecute him.
> no way Deku does anything to Overhaul one on one.
Right now since he doesn't know what his quirk is and would just get turned to a pile of blood upon impact, yeah. But once he does it would be seriously bullshit if he couldn't take someone who's physically completely normal down with 8% OfA. He could throw a fucking pebble at him and it should be enough
I don't know, having a regulated underworld is probably the best solution outside of outright decriminalization. People are going to want to whore and buy drugs, and having 3000 different gangs vying for territory instead of one holding a monopoly isn't the worst solution.
>people want a love interest.
>not a cute imouto
You all lack vision
By taking their sweet time to actually do something they're just allowing him to advance his plans without a hitch, which we already saw on this chapter with him continuing to do whatever they're doing with Eri and getting Shiggy's response.2
Even if they detained Overhaul, his lackeys can most likely carry on most of their business as usual until he gets back out. The only thing that'd probably have to wait is talking with shiggy diggy again, and I'd be surprised if he didn't have someone capable of relaying info to him even when he's in custody.
The problem is that a "regulated underworld" doesn't just stick to whores and drugs. They also do racketeering, extortion, murder, political corruption, human trafficking (where do you think most of those whores come from?).
The best scenario is to have small gangs that can never do anything big so that you can just arrest them and be done with it.
You need proof of them doing something bad before you can do anything. If police could kill off and arrest anyone they highly believe to be a gang member we'd have a better world (maybe) but they can't with no hard evidence.
He means that Mirio seemed way too jovial and nice when in front of a Yakuza member. It would have been more logical for him to show disdain and/or mockery. That would be a far more normal reaction for a hero and raise less suspicion.
Not really. The only difference is that there are not as many gang wars if it's a monopoly, and in exchange you get cartoonish levels of corruption.
See: The mexican war on drugs, which has been through both stages over the decades
The Precepts of Death are a well know group. Think of Nino Brown; Everyone knows he's a criminal but the police can't prove it and the ordinary citizens are fine with it as long as he's in the ghetto handing out turkeys.
My boy Deku is gonna fuck this guy up
You just watch
>naw deku dont save the kid
>b-but dont we have the authority to take him in on child abuse charges and keep in custody once we get any sort of of abuse claim from the child? Dont we have him RIGHT NOW?
>naw deku, come on, its 2 for 1 ice-cream today.
I'm now even more sure that the deal is Eri's body is able to produce an anti-quirk substance.
Either scales or just her blood or something, but somehow she's the source of the shit they used to stop Compress and tried to use on Shiggy.
Meh, a little of overextension, but it could be cool tho. We still don't know what her quirk is or what age she is.
Plus she decided to go willing with him instead of having two inocent guys killed, so that goes for that too I guess
Nah, that just makes him look more incompetent for having such a useless henchmen in his employ in the first place.
Honestly, I'm not impressed by him so far, he's cookie-cutter compared to Stain.
Actually no. They wouldn't know what his quirk does because he has to kill people to use it as far as we know.
He could just be registered as quirkless. This isn't even touching the fact that he's a yakuza member who might not have proper registration.
Anyone else bored of this series?
I feel like it might be axed soon.
>Deku becomes a pro hero
>kouta and eri are his sidekicks
Look at the chair Overhaul is strapping Eri into - it seems connected to a few human sized cylinders.
I'm saying clones. She can make clones of someone.
Fuck off the bad guys are the only good part about this generic shonenshit.
OverTheEdge killed one of Shiggy's basement dwelling bro's.
Shiggy gonna get his vengeance, because if there's one thing I like about the current circle of the Villains group, they do seem to be friends due to having no-one else.
Overhaul is a better and more interesting villian in every possible way I am upset that plot armor Shiggy is going to win
>Overhaul is a better and more interesting villian in every possible way
>His ability is just like shiggy except it only works on organics
>better than this
I don't...think so...?
For me he is as generic as it comes. Even his quirk is just a variant of Shiragakis quirk (both need to touch somebody and the touch is pretty much instant death), his motivation so far is pretty lame (#1 villain I guess? judging from the conversation between him and shirigaki) and he can't even control his henchmen (this chapter) and gets into stupid situations because of that. Reading this chapter makes me think he's kind of a moron bumbling his way through, relying only on his status as a yakuza.
I mean, his design is alright, but he hasn't done anything interesting so far. Maybe he can turn it around once the arc really gets going, but so far I'm pretty disappointed.
They really had to give him the absolute most boring and generic powers of all time. Fucking super strength how interesting. Bakugo may be shit character wise but at least his power is pretty cool.
I feel like Eri is gonna tie into this horseshit, somehow.
Depends on what Overhaul is using her blood for - actually I don't know if he's draining her blood or injecting her blood.
If he's draining her blood maybe he uses it as the fuel for the darts of quirk cancelling dart guy - but the fact that he says Eri is the key to his big expensive plan makes me doubt that - quirk cancelling ain't THAT rare.
Oh, and another thing I'd like to point out. It reads like he only started doing shit after All Mights "death". I think he even said something to that effect, but I might remember it wrong.
For me, that just tells me he's a chicken shit. If the battle between AfO and OfA had not happened, Yakuza guy would probably still hide somewhere doing nothing noteworthy.
Compare that with Shiragaki and Stain. They didn't give a single shit. In fact, in the case of the league, they were motivated by AM's existence and their motivation to kill him was understandable.
Meanwhile Yakuza dude waited until AM was gone, does he not have confidence in his abilities or his crew?
I seriously hope you are not fucking implying that Overhaul is edgier than fucking Shigaraki.
>quirk cancelling ain't THAT rare.
Literally only ONE other person has quirk canceling powers, and that faggot has to look at a person to make it work meaning he can only pull off 2 people if he went cross-eyed, tops.
If some little girl developed a quirk where her blood or some other part of her could turn off other quirks simply through contact/injection, then that would be fucking HUGE due to the weaponization possibilities.
There's no reason to insult anyone, anon.
I can't answer your question, but I don't remember saying that I hold Deku in high regards either. I'm just explaining why I think Overhaul doesn't do anything for me so far.
And hey, I'm not saying he's irredeemable. In fact I hope I get my ass blown out and he turns out to be the best of them all. It's not like I 'want' to dislike him, I just do and I'm expressing why I feel this way.
Toga can literally be playing all sides at all times due to the nature of her quirk.
I find it quite reasonable that someone coolheaded like Overhaul, leader of a criminal organisation, would avoid doing criminal acts while the greatest superhero we know of all might is still alive and kicking. Like why would he even risk his head? He probably lives just fine off the regular business, and he doesnt have a personal vendetta against allmight, he has no reason to attack him.
Now that he's out of the picture, it makes sense that he's gonna want to stretch his tentacles a bit and reach out. Doesnt strike me as cowardly at all, just smart thinking.
Overhaul might be intended to be a disappointment, since you can't have both him and Shiggy be successful simultaneously. Only one "King of Evil" allowed.
Remember that we're still only in year one of Deku's high school career. Bit too early for a student to die.
Though I could totally see Mirio losing his quirk a la Ragdoll, or at least getting thrown in Toga's rape dungeon for awhile.
>Remember that we're still only in year one of Deku's high school career. Bit too early for a student to die.
I mean Iida's bro got horribly horribly crippled, and there's been 6 on-screen graphic murders thanks to Overhaul and Shiggy, and also Dabi.
Honestly, I think the series is better off for it. MxO but with superpowers instead of magic isn't as interesting thematically as "I can't just become the #1 hero. I have to be the pillar that holds up our entire way of life."
The pressure, the struggle to define what being a True Hero really means is far more personal this way.
Why do so many people think there's gonna be a timeskip?
The entire manga will take place during the 4 years of highschool. Hori knows better than to skip more than a few months of that.
Well, OfA is so integrated to the theme of the manga I can't possibly see how Hori originally planned Deku to be quirkless. I'd be interested to see the interview where Hori mentions it
Ah I see you're a retard. Carry on then.
Didnt know that. If I had to guess I think hori would show at least a year of life past highschool too though. Unless deku becomes nr 1 in senior year.
Yeah, but those weren't students or people super close to Deku.
Tensei and Ragdoll showed that heroes can get crippled in the line of duty outside of a flashback in this story. Magne showed that villains can die. Kemi showed that students can go missing.
I'd hold off on assuming sudden student death until we actually see it.
That's an interesting idea.
Sure it makes sense, but it doesn't make a good impression on me.
He's supposed to be a contender for the biggest villain ever, but his approach is so calculated and boring that it just isn't as entertaining to read.
Again, compare it with Shiragaki's shenanigans. The first thing we see him do is to storm the school with hundreds of henchmen, take out heroes left and right and even have a plan to kill AM (despite failing).
That shit had oomph, it was exciting to read. You knew from the get-go that Shiragaki has balls, logic be damned, he's gonna try it. He has a clear goal (not unlike shonen heroes) and he has the will to smash his head against this challenge over and over.
Now, the first thing we see Overhaul do is to take out low level villains for no apparent reason. After that we see him agreeing to a meeting with the league, but only to show his dominance and independence to them. Now we see him running after a child and killing his own men for little reason. This scene makes me question the following things:
1) Why did Overhaul have such a buffoon on his crew?
2) Why did Overhaul *personally* go after the child?
The reason, for me, is weak writing. It looks cool on the page and "gets the plot going", but at the cost of interesting character writing.
He splatters his henchmen and you go "ah yeah, he's a bad one alright" but that's it, it's skin deep.
So annon would you.
>1. Sacrifice a little girl for the greater good shutting down a criminal organization?
>2. Save the little girl at the risk of losing your opportunity?
That's boring as fuck dude. His powers are boring and lame especially since they should come stock to most Shonen protagonist anyway. Laffy, Naruto, Meliodas, Ichigo all have super strength and durability in addition to other unique powers. Saitama works because just how over the top his super strength and durability and even speed is.
Honestly /a/ sucks when it comes to moral dilemmas.
I think the best and safest course would be number 1. In the long run it would end up doing more good and saving more lives instead of just one.
I like em both, but Im rooting for everyone's favorite autist.
The templates Hori uses for "ideal hero" is Spiderman, who he admires for "always being able to save people", and Goku, who he admires for "always being able to win."
You'll note that in Deku vs Kacchan 2 AM calls Deku an example of the former and Katsuki an example of the latter.
After all this shitting on the chapter, I might as well point out something that I did like about it. Hori reiterating on the concept what a hero should be as opposed to what they currently are.
Mirio is content with letting the villain go, although the situation is very clearly bad.
Deku acts like a hero "should" and if something seems fishy he is not afraid to go after it.
Nah, it's either Mirio or Sir, but more likely Mirio. With Mirios death, you could justify Sir accepting Deku as OfA's successor after a showdown with Overhaul.
Nope. "My Hero." It's pretty sweet. The MC is also a mix of Deku + Ochako + Salaryman, so it's interesting to see how Hori went from that to BnHa
Also Snipe is the All Might figure in this. I'll storytime "My Hero" one of these days - maybe in another thread so to not drown out conversation.
No, he did write a oneshot like that. The main character in that one was a failing salesman for Hero Gadgets, and after some events the MC uses the gadgets himself against a villain. There was also the motif of a idolized hero that had fallen previously.
It was good and would've given Hori a lot of room to play with the gadgets for the MC.
>When a child sex slave begs you for salvation but taking her from her yakuza master would violate the NAP so you send her down a dark alley with the violent criminal
Well there's key differences actually. Deku liked All Might because he was a super cool hero, Midoriya Jack liked Positive/Snipe because Positive "saved" him as a young kid(i.e. Jack was lost and Positive got him home safely.)
Sure, the motifs are completely different. I'm talking about the argument: powerless faggot in superhero society decides he wants to be a hero. Everything else is the deep core, the soul of the story, but the form is the same.
It's not like you create the core first.
Yeah. Just a weeping kid asking for help and a masked edgelord with no ID for either of them.
Ever heard of "reasonable cause"?
Weeping kid with bandages who smells and is crying with known criminal begging for help - nah Officer I think you should leave that teenage boy be his dirt covered daughter clearly is just throwing a tantrum
Well, we operate from assumptions at this point. What we know is that Mirio chose to approach situation more pragmatically. We don't know if he was taught to act this way by Sir or somebody else, or it's just his personal approach, and we don't know how Sir will react to their choices of actions once he hears about this. Sure Nightwing seems to be more reasonable and cunning guy than All might, but he worships AM as much as Deku does, and says that he never disagreed with AM until the successor issue, so he must know that AM would always help people no matter what, like the way he protected the girl in fight against AfO, so Sir must also respect that heroic trait.
But not more heroically. Not how Nana or AM would advocate doing shit at all. And in the end, a huge waste of an opportunity. Overhaul said it himself, that girl is the key to his plan.
I kind of really want it to be some quirk we're not seeing all of. Like the quirk isn't "blow people up" it's something completely different that lets him blow people up in addition to whatever else it does.
Like that one blurb near the beginning about how a girl had water jet powers but it turned out she had full moisture control.
I really like this guy by the way and I'm going to be very sad when he most likely gets turned to dust.
Yeah, but I mean why are you including Sir, as if he was in on the decision to let Overhaul take the girl? We don't know how he would react to the situation. It's possible he'd be mad at Mirio for failing to be a proper hero.
>Deku will never hold you in his strong arms
>He will never protect you from scary villains
So I don't get why there needs to be one big top hero? Wouldn't the world be served better by a shitload of big important heroes?
Like yeah lets groom the guy who's amazing to be more amazing, but this other guy who has slightly less potential could be nearly as amazing as well.
I get the symbol of peace thing but I feel like any of the top several heroes should be able to function as a symbol of peace. Except Endevor. Fuck that guy.
>Like the quirk isn't "blow people up" it's something completely different that lets him blow people up in addition to whatever else it does.
He merges a guy with a tire and the rest with a car. His quirk is some weird transmutation ability but it's probably quicker and easier to just cause people to burst like balloons filled with Kool-aid.
This story actually makes me want to follow a villain story. A group like Shiggy's which is basically a bunch of homeless buddies with shit lives who resort to villainy out of desperation and spite.
Then some yakuza comes in and kills their muscle, now it's time for some poorly thought out but most likely effective revenge.
It's possible. But the big guy has discolored hands and given his stature, I would assume he's a reinforcement type. Black robe is a mystery.
But given the name Overhaul, I think merging and altering things fits his proposed power.
>"oh we cannot blow our cover so let's just leave this little bandaged girl with the evil villain that she is afraid of"
Mirio should have inherited OfA my ass. Sir is a faggot and likes dick.
God, Imagine being born a full-out mutant like the cat cop and seeing girls get away with just having cute ears.
Would you risk compromising your superiors investigation? Sure you would save one life but what will Overhaul do to get her back? Not to mention what if he moves his operations somewhere else and the trail goes cold?
It sucks but right now not blindly following through with the idealized hero instinct may have been the smarter decision. Acting irrationally could get both of them killed and out sir as the investigator looking for a dangerous criminal.
>Would you risk compromising your superiors investigation?
Of course, who cares about some silly investigation, there was a little girl that needed to be saved and one asshole that deserved to be punched.
>Sure you would save one life but what will Overhaul do to get her back?
He can't get her back if he is beaten up to a pulp.
>Not to mention what if he moves his operations somewhere else and the trail goes cold?
You just need to go around and search for him again.
>deserved to be punched.
Congratulations because you ran into melee rang of this guy whose ability you don't know you're now a smear on the wall, the girl will go back with the bad guy, and nothing changed except you have severed the chain of succession for your quirk.
Good job hero.
>not saving girl and thwarting villain's scheme at the same time
>not saving everyone and putting all the villains in jail
See, this is why only All might was a symbol of peace and number one far ahead of Endeavor, because he didn't just stop at what his best would be, he did what was impossible too.
>On foot patrol with my rookie partner
>Come across some scumbag with a little girl
>She runs over to my partner, hugs him and cries for help
>Consider asking for ID and seeing if he's got any outstanding warrants
>We know this fucker is gang boss but can't prove it
>Fuckit it's HERO TIME!
>He shoots my brains out and permanently crippled my partner
>Rapes girl twice as hard that night
B-But muh heroism mufugga
What would happen?
If you decided to completely fuck up a 7 month long investigation because comic books say act like Captain Faggot instead of a detective with an IQ above room temperature
I don't think Mirio will die. I think his arc here is to reinforce why Deku was chosen over him, that Sir might think All Might's successor has to be the closest thing to All Might as a symbol, but that All Might prefers Deku's own reckless heroism over someone that would make sacrifices for a greater good.
>I'm going to leave a terrified and obviously abused child in the custody of a criminal madman because I don't want my new internship boss to get mad at me
Deku is never going to be like that. The core of his character is that he cannot ignore a person who needs help, whether for the greater good or his own welfare. He will help them no matter what.
What makes Deku interesting is that he's smart enough to know that isn't the smart thing to do, but he is going to do it anyway.
>more interesting than Izuku
Nobody legitimately believes this
He's a one-note joke whose feelings of ennui and dissatisfaction never get expanded upon, kept completely static as a character so the series can run through the same stories over and over and have people claim it's "XD So subversive" by being completely boring.
>because I don't want my new internship boss to get mad at me
Pretty sure that anon was talking about destroying the case that would be used to arrest overhaul, as well as understanding what the criminal was up too and stopping that as well.
Even arresting Overhaul would result in his cronies moving the base and now you have no case, and arguably overhaul will walk because you have no actual charge against him and the police will have to let him go.
But keep believing that you can just punch all your problems.
How many times does Hori have to make it clear that heroes aren't above the law?
Than shift the subject to him. Either way it's a philosophy that won't work consistently. Wanting to help everyone is admirable, but being him being so blindly lawful is a great way to get way in over his head.
Yeah Magne was I believe the first person to die both onscreen and while relevant in the manga.
If you wanna stretch it, you can include Best Jeanist and Ragdoll for both being crippled in action.
So entrance exams for Japanese Highschools are held from mid January to Feburary, right?
or maybe his common sense was telling him not to escalate the situation further than necessary against a person of interest. They weren't even supposed to engage with him to begin with
had it not been for Mirio, Deku would've followed him and ended up a splat on the wall like henchman jr.
>24 second shot clock
>had it not been for Mirio, Deku would've followed him and ended up a splat on the wall like henchman jr.
Had it not been for Mirio, Deku would have grabbed the girl and skidaddled, as he puts saving people over beating the opponent.
The people complaining about Mirio's actions and praising Deku here clearly don't understand how investigations work.
Not everything can be solved by "hurr durr muh all might powers" and punching people in the face, MAYBE he could take out Overhaul without fucking exploding into pieces, and then what?
The entire organization behind Overhaul would smart up to continue working in the shadows, the whole investigation would stop and possibly become meaningless.
Is that why hes still out of service?
I hate idiots like you that still think healing lady is a senzo bean. She only accelerates the natural healing of the body, I'd bet if you broke every bone in your body you're still gonna be fucked up even with her.

Eh, there was ample time for Deku to just pick up the girl and run. If he listened to his gut instead of Mirio, things would have been fine. Once Overhaul goes down the alley I agree it's game over, but not before then.
And it would tip him off if they tred to take her too. Remember he asked which hero office they were with, if they take her he will track them down back to nighteye.
This situation is an easy one.
And then what? Mirio would have to book it alongside him else his in trouble, Overhaul would immediately realize he's being supervised and prepare for that, boom everything sir and the team worked for is gone. What if then Overhaul decides he isnt gonna take such a loss and retaliates by just causing mayhem, like destroying a hospital or something. When every nurse and doctor and patient is a splatter on the wall or stitched into it like something out of bloodborne, would you still consider saving Eri to be the right choice?
The girl is the pillar in their entire plan.
Of course they couldn't have known this, but if they tried to save her this would have been over already. Or ended in a similar fight as with the knife dude. But that can't happen, because then the story can't progress, so the author made Deku act out of character.
the clue is in the name, the guy is a bruiser with no name
he's pretty fucking strong to be able to tank OfA with no damage (before Deku went 10000000%) but he was a bloodthirsty retard
same thing goes for Moonfish except he's even crazier and creepier
I just realized. Is Overhaul the first villain we've seen actually kill someone on screen?
We know other villains are killers, but we haven't actually seen them kill onscreen like he has.
Deku certainly hasn't seen any death yet. Do you think he will respond badly the first time he sees someone die?
>>naw deku, come on, its 2 for 1 ice-cream today.
>shonen series keeps adding great villains before the previous one is even defeated or sometimes confronted at all
Love it. I'm not used to this feeling yet. How shit usually goes is "new threat appears, heroes defeat it by the end of the arc, then a bigger threat appears".
Deu actually did the right thing, as he states. Heroes can't be fucking stupid because they'd never make it. So it's fully expected for a hero to put the frightened girl and the scary dude together like 1+1 and come to the conclusion that something was up.
As deku says, the villain dude would have been more suspicious if deku turned around and said "Oh it's cool, I didn't see anything"
A:I just don't think it will, I trust Hori not to do that.
B:I don't think the stakes are gonna go that high anyway. Since this is the story about how Deku became a hero, I'm pretty sure its gonna end with him going full pro while Shiggy creates the VA.
Maybe there will be a sequel dealing with their life as pros, but even then I doubt it would go further than Deku vs Shiggy since they are set up to be nemesises
I wouldn't go that far, future rapist maybe.
I wasn't actually serious but I do hope she survives too.
Shiggy/AfO is just going to find somewith a restoration or reversing quirk. They already found a regenerating quirk but it was too late. End boss is guaranteed to be 100%, devilshly handsome AfO.
>But then the more troubling aspect is that the legal system in MHA is anal enough that knowing he met with the League of Villains wasn't enough to detain him.
I mean what have the League of Villains even done? They just formed, and even if they claim to want to destroy society, as long as you only claim to do something, you really can't be arrested.
Furthermore, never forget the fact that Al Capone was arrested on Tax Evasion, instead of any of his criminal activities, because legally, the Fed could never pin anything on him directly, only his underlings. And Capone's jury was rigged as fuck.
