    We have however now seen that it would newer happen, since he is 100% dedicated to becoming the #1 hero.

    And what i predicted a while ago, were that the only way he would switch sides, would be if mind control or simular things were used.
    But at that point its no longer him switching sides, he is being made to switch sides.
    It is literally and literately the same at the end of the day. Baku isn't going to be a hero for long. How it happens is how it happens but he's going to be part of the Villain Alliance. One way or another.

    Wouldn't call that the same actually.

    In one case we have Bakugou choosing to side with the villains, whether by promises of power, glory, or other. Them convincing him that the villain side is a major thing that effects Bakugou's story and has him shift his goals.

    Him getting mind controlled or turned into one of those monstrosities just takes out his agency and makes it a case of "but thou must" where Bakugou still has the same goals and ideals, but is being forced into it.

    It's a case of him choosing, which is a change from his dreams and efforts, or being forced into it, which subverts his whole "I'll be the number 1 hero, so go screw yourselves" via the fact his decision suddenly doesn't matter.

    Even if you think it's literally the same, plot-wise and character-wise, they're night and day.

    Everything goes perfectly, team Deku is in completely the wrong place and All Might is setting off death flags like fireworks. Although I couldn't guess what's going to get him. Possibly just running out of time, or pushing his time limit way to much.

    Holy **** it's the Noumu factory. Good job little heroes! Also, I love Kaminari's expression as Yoyorozu complains about it being too tight between the walls. I've been there girl, I've been there *head nods*.

    Back with the villains proper we learn that the magician is called Compress, which is an interesting name. Also, PIZZA DELIVERY! This is such a good scene. Dabi trying to light up Kamui Woods' tree...only to get booted in the head by Gran Torino and it looks like he's basically ****in' dead emotionally from an old man kicking his face in. I love it when the heroes in this series do heroic things. We also learn that Edge Hero is from America, neat!

    Back at the Noumu factory...Mt. Lady ****ing destroys it with a truck kick. We also see that Best Jeanist's Quirk is some kind of stitching power...using jean material. Nice.

    What a chapter. Holy ****.

    Oh my Goodness! There's just so much "waiting for the other shoe to drop"-ness now with this chapter, it's painful.

    I like that Bakugou was shown thinking while delivering his usual jagged-edged trollish dialogue, and the look on his face when All Might put his hand his shoulder is priceless.

    Was that the other Pussycat - Rag-Doll I think it was - that Tiger was carrying near the end of the chapter? That's a point they've touched on a few times in the exposition dialogue but was fairly deep into the background otherwise.

    It was a pretty badass chapter, though sadly not one that has to much content to discuss.
    I guess besides if Handface will get arrested or not.
    At this point i can honestly see the story going either way.

    So Jeanist, Ragdoll, Mt. Lady, Mr Tiger and a new Orca hero are all dead without getting a chance to counter attack, All For One has released his second lot of Nomus on All Mights team and the wannabe rescue team are too scared to even move. I'd say Old guy is going to grab Byak and run, All Mights going to die holding the line and the other heros have about a 50/50 chance of dying except Endeavour who is probably also going to survive.

    Wow, things certainly changed fast, but all the same i think its just a little to early to declare the first team dead. At least before we have seen the bodies.

    And i also think its a bit to early for All Might to bite the dust in the bar showdown. These have most likely not been enginered to stand against him, and with the possibility of a hand from the backup team then i do think the Numoras (or whatever they are called) will be fought off.

    I don't think they're dead, he wouldn't waste such intense power on "small fry". He'd probably be saving it for All Might. We'll have to see next chapter though.

    Holy **** this was an intense chapter though. Between Edge Shot showing off his power in a pretty shocking way, the surprise of All For One actually stepping in to the fight with his powers...potentially mortally wounding or at least defeating all those pro heroes. Dear god this is going to be a crazy fight.

    I agree, it's possible they've been warped away rather than disintegrated, it would be easy to assume the latter.

    As to the chapter in general, great way to - directly - introduce the big bad.

    I also like the Heroes listing the names of the Villains. It's an interesting aspect of this series that maintaining a Heroic Name is considered a genuine sign of respect - like a badge of office one earns - and that they like to actively strip that from the Villains when they can.

    Oh I didn't actually notice Byak had been warped away, next time I see him I think he's going to be depowered as a switch between him an Deku. As for the B team I still think they are dead if you look at the shot of One for all he seems to have fired some sort of beam that's destroyed everything infront of him and is now flying.

    New chapter! Golden Week is over!

    Spoiler
    Show
    The villains all get warped away due to a power of All For One, and we see that Best Jeanist saved everyone through use of his quirk! Unfortunately...All For One seems to take a chunk out of his body, saying that all his skill is personal, not quirk based, and thus he is useless. We then see that...All For One legitimately seems to care about Shiguraki and wants him to succeed, much like All Might is for Deku. The contrast of the two is fantastic, and it really sets the stage for what happens at the end of the chapter.

    Deku wants to rush in and help, but Iida prevents everyone from going. He kept his word, he'll keep them safe. And then...All Might appears. "You! I'll make you give everything back!" "All Might! Are you here to kill me again?!"

    Next chapter is going to be ****ing intense.

    And yeah, i knew they would not randomly kill that many named heroes off, certainly not without showing a body. Though it might be the end for Best Jeanist, only time will tell.

    Do love that of everyone Ida is the one to actually keep his head even barely cold, preventing them from rushing out into their doom.
    It is going to get bloody enough already next time, though my personal bet is on a draw with All for One getting away.

    I do think he dont want to fight One for All himself, my reading of the situation is that he genuinly want to pass that torch to his student.

    I think that Yaoyarozu is also holding back Kawashima.

    But, yeah, good call Iida. And kudos for finally being able to move.

    And it turning out not that someone had crapped their pants(though if Mineta had been present, I guarantee that he would've shat bricks) but instead that All For One's teleportation goop is stanky stank.

    I really like that whole "Gonna kill me again?" part to it. Although I admit, I had thought he'd only been gravely wounded and crippled, not actually killed or mortally wounded, and his slow recovery was part only having relatively recently found a person with a regenerating quirk and part the quirk being slower than molasses.

    I believe the regeneration may be Broken. Healing girl can heal Deku, but enough damage will still leave him a cripple.

    Imagine if your jaw is shoved inside your head. If it regenerates improperly, it will sow your mouth shut with flesh.

    I think the same type of thing is happening with All for One.

    I think he needs that mask to prevent his regeneration from killing himself.

    Keep in mind he was also attached to a lot of medical machines in that scene though. I don't think the helmet is to keep him alive that being said, I just think it's part of his villain outfit. IT'd explain why his face IS that messed up. All Might punched his face so hard it smashed the helmet AND his face.

    Maybe it's there just to protect himself from the smell of his teleportation quirk. Midoriya - though it could have been Bakugou off-panel - remarked how it suddenly smells like **** when that black ooze shows up. While Midoriya and friends are clearly - and rightly - terrified, they also look pretty noxious at that point as well.

    Seems somewhat trivial - and it may indeed be some kind of medical technology as said - but this manga usually prizes function over form, costume designs and weapons make practical sense in most cases.

    I ****in' haaaaaaaaate you. I hate you so much. Had me more on edge than I already was the entire chapter!

    God what a fantastic chapter though. Deku figures out how to save Bakugou without making Bakugou go insane from being saved by him AGAIN. We see that both All Might and All For One are weaker, and it actually feels like All For One will lose here...we also see at least part of All For One's quirk manipulation power is to force a quirk to turn on, and that appearance wise it's GIANT ****ING BLACK NEEDLE FINGERS AAAAAH.

    This is so great.
