    Stole it or destroyed it?

    Shigaraki, more than Overhaul and the yakuza, relies on a small band of dangerous people with dangerous quirks. And his teacher was a man who is at this point a walking bundle of quirks in a human body stockpiling powerful and simple to use quirks. Anti-quirk technology is just as harmful to Shigaraki as it is to the heroes and both possibilities are viable.

    I personally wouldn't be surprised one bit of Shigaraki iced Overhaul's research in case he needs it in the future or just destroys it and uses the fear that he has it to manipulate the professional heroes.

    Well... he probably won't use the research in the same way Overhaul wanted to use it (introducing it into the black market), but it can still be very useful to him. I don't think he would just destroy it.

    There's also the previously unreported capsule, which may just be the drug to restore quirks (since no one on the hero/police side knows about that), or may be something we haven't learned about yet; whichever it is, Shigaraki has it, and it wouldn't have been dangled if it wasn't going to come up later.

    (Also, I finally got around to reading this. Hi y'all.)

    Hey there, welcome aboard.

    Yes it can be some sort of cryptic power restoring drug. I think i missed the reference to that myself. But it could also just contain the tracking device that allows Shigaraki to intercept the police transport.

    It could be most anything given Compress's quirk is to compress things into capsule form, and the clone Compress went down to the battle area to do SOMETHING.

    Nighteye is dead. Eri is in a coma (?). Everyone else is mostly fine. I still have to say I don't feel too bad... I just feel like we didn't know him long enough... and frankly, his speech was a bit too sappy for my taste. So all you need to change the world is willpower and wishing?
    Hm, maybe I'm just feeling grumpy.

    Holy **** Nighteye actually died. Holy ****. I was...not expecting that at all actually???? I mean...jeez. He died on screen too.

    This is going to be...intense. And yeah, Eri's exhausted to the point of coma, and all our heroes are mostly okay barring Nighteye. It's...an interesting end to this arc. I can't wait to see the fallout from this.

    I'm going to repeat myself: no matter what one thinks about the story of this manga, it certainly is masterful at telling it.

    Yeah, I was a little caught off-guard, but it makes sense.

    I think Nighteye is exactly the right 'tier' of character to die at this point in the story. At its root, My Hero Academia is a shonen story about hope. It's not really in-genre for main characters to die as anything less than an ultimate sacrifice. At the same time, killing people like 'sand-hero' last chapter is pretty meaningless, emotionally. It tells us the bad guys are serious, but we don't actually care.

    Nighteye has been around just long enough that we know his death will have a real impact on the survivors, without tearing a hole through the heart of the cast. It's a strong move without being a shocking one, and I think that is the right choice for the pacing of this story.

    There's also the chance that Snatch the Sand Hero isn't dead, just hurt. But yeah, that's a good point. Nighteye is the right person to die here. Given some of the stuff we've heard about his relationship with All Might, the eventual funeral scene we're gonna get is going to be REALLY sad.

    No, I disagree. Obviously I'm not against killing characters but for me it's a thin line between making it seem an integral part of the story and being some emotional manipulation for the consumer.
    Here it seems much more the latter to me. Nighteye was just introduced this arc, so even with his history with AM this has little to do with Deku or us.
    If Kohei wanted a meaningful death it should have been AM after fighting AfO. He is important for the story and we have grown to love him and giving his life to stop him would have made sense. (not saying Sir giving his for the mission does not)

    Obviously that's just my opinion and you are free to disagree with it.
    I'm not saying I don't like Nighteye or I think the story is bad or even this is terrible, but I have a hard time praising it, apart from the execution of the death scene.

    I believe Nighteye was removed in large part because his quirk would be particularly difficult to plot around.

    Every arc from now on would have to answer the question of why the good guys didn't get Nighteye to see the future for them. It's not the sort of ability one can bring up and then just ignore. But involving Nighteye either removes tension from the conflict, or warps the tension around the accuracy and implications of his quirk. It has too great a forced effect on the story, in a direction that isn't particularly relevant to the foundational arc of Izuku becoming the greatest hero.

    Since Nighteye can't be ignored, and he can't be used effectively, he needs to go. So the writers quickly maxed out the tension around Nighteye's predictions, with Nighteye predicting All Might's death, and Izuku showing that Nighteye's predictions are not set in stone. And they tied this to Nighteye's other bit of structural relevance, which is his opposition to Izuku succeeding All Might. Once Izuku refutes the infallibility of Nighteye's predictions, Nighteye acknowledges Izuku, and as he has no other dynamics that need resolving, the writers are free to kill him off.

    It all smells very convenient to the reader, and it's kind of a waste for the position of All Might's sidekick, but once the writers decided what this arc was going to be, it made sense for Nighteye to die at the end of it.


    Odds on Eri eventually taking it upon herself to fix Mirio?

    After careful consideration im going to agree on Kato' stance regarding the death.

    It honestly feels like the author have decided to put Mirio on a bus for now. I mean it could clearly be that his Quirk just made it to hard to challenge him or write compelling stories where he were involved. But at the same time he is not dead. He can at any time be pulled back by either Eri rewinding him, or some miracle cure getting discovered.

    Hate to be that guy, but "writer". There's only the one.

    Honestly not much to say, this is the final little wrap up. It touches on some stuff we might of had questions about, and is pretty cool and nice. It does um...show a scene at the start that is interesting. Kurogiri's got a big boy up his sleeve, as it where.

    Actually I got quite a few thoughts this time...

    Like how would you even apprehend Kurogiri? Without injecting him with quirk supressant? As far as we know there's hardly a llimit to his power...
    Also, AfO's back up plan is a huge monster? Seems pretty unlikely, he's too smart for that.
    And I really like Mirio. There's just no way around it. I mean, I'd love to know how he lasted ten seconds against Chisaki without his quirk but apart from that...
    Finally: I think next week might get pretty funny. Much needed after the last chapters.

    Okay good point. Well, as we saw with Bakugo you can grab his neckbrace and that pretty much disables them. Slap those quirk supressing cuffs on him and you've got em. I have a feeling the giant isn't special because he's GIANT, given he has a radio on him that was broadcasting the weather...I think it's a weather control quirk who just happens to also be huge.

    Mirio is just THAT GOOD in a fight. It's part of why he's going to become Batman. Also yes, some levity will be quite appreciated.

    Basically just clean up, but there's some cute moments here and there. Ashido's definitely gonna get some moments soon. Uraraka expresses that she's very upset she didn't do anything this arc, which same, same.

    And we cut back to the current time so Todoroki and Bakugo can do their thing. M.Bison and Toga!Girl are here, as well as the gross meat puppet guy.

    I'd say Katsuki is the worst Tsundere I ever saw... but I think that would require him to be soft on the inside?
    Also... for eff's sake, if the lesson for Deku is going to be "swallow your sadness" I'm gonna get angry. But eating up negative emotions is not a healthy way to deal with them.
    It's still cute to see the gang together again. I wonder if we'll actually get some romance from Kirishima...

    Also... so.. is this toga or...?! It seems not but then how exactly...?

    He'd better not. Kirishima isn't allowed romance when Bakugou isn't there to be on the receiving end.
