    Just. Putting that there into the world. Holds about as much water as a butterfly net, but it's just my thoughts.
    If there is any visual simularities at all it's to emphasize the point that they're mirrors of each other, and that in the proper environment one could become the other.

    No new chapter this week. But, we do get a Vigilantes.

    And in this Vigilantes, we begin our new arc: The depression days of Eraserhead as a first year student in UA!

    I'm actually SUPER hype for this. Vigilantes has proven it knows how to tackle big subjects and "Eraserhead is terminably depressed because his quirk feels useless and he's down all the time" is something they can really do a lot with.

    So, Shigaraki has gone full Barragan.

    The rest of the chapter is like something out of One Piece.

    I am suitably impressed. Both by this arc and this chapter in particular. The art continues being amazing, too. Way to go, Hori!

    And now, well... I guess we'll stop saying "nice manga, but the stakes are low because the villains don't feel really threatening".

    Just to come back to this:

    Deku is not a mirror to Skigaraki in a meaningful sense. They're not meaningfully contrasted in circumstances, powers, upbringing, or anything other than being connected to enemies from the previous generation.

    Eri is.

    Eri is a specific mirror to Shigaraki on every level down to their powers being exact opposites.

    It has to be a head. There was another thing that popped into mind, but I since this is shonen, I don't think it would happen.

    I mean we've already seen a transwoman, a dog and now a small child burst into a blob of gore. A decapitation can't be much worse than that.

    Eri is a specific mirror to Shigaraki on every level down to their powers being exact opposites.
    Of course Eri and Tomura Shigaraki are mirrors of each other with actual life experiences, as well as mirrors of each animating energy their quirks.

    But Izuku / Deku and Tomura Shigaraki are also mirrors of each other. They are mirrors of each others ideologies and the limit of idelogy by itself without action. Tomura Shigaraki kept the Symbol of Peace Idology inside his head to try to cope, but it could old do so much, reality still itched, it still hurt him. In the end this ideology of heroes became a burdern so he liberated himself. He now finds joy in destruction both physical but also on an ideological level. Shigaraki for the most part embraces the fear while Izuku freezes due to the Fear but at the same time in other instances Izuku runs with the Fear in order to save others.

    They are still mirrors of each other for they were both powerless an they used the ideology to handle the fear, but Izuku in the embraced it while Tomura pushed it away, discarded it, and attacked-decayed it.

    Taking my needlessly pedantic hat on, then no they are not exact opposites power wise.
    Shigaraki's quick is called decay, but what it does seems more like breaking bonds at a molecular level now.

    Well. This is a serious jump for Shigaraki.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Not only does he gain reach with his quirk, he also gains Gigantomachia as a high-level battle asset and now the resources of the MLA. I'm assuming they also have The Doctor's approval and full cooperation now too. Forget about containing Shigaraki's insane quirk in a one-on-one combat situation, he has a literal army at his command now. I'm guessing Deku will now have to master his new suite of powers to keep up.

    Also, one theme of this arc seems to be the villains pushing their personal limits. First Toga, then Twice, and now Shigaraki. Dabi, Spinner, and Compress got left out, but hey there's only so much panel space to go around.

    It seems increasingly more clear Deku -will- need the aid of his entire class to handle the end.
    Because the villains are growing rapidly.

    Uh? The implications of Allmight and All For One's full power before their crippling has always been totally bonkers. The narration in the very first chapter flat out stated that Deku would surpass Allmight. Shirataki would logically need a crazy amount of power to challenge Deku in the climax. This kind of power level for the endgame was heavily foreshadowed from day one. Yet you're complaining about it now?

    Actually I've been complaining about that for awhile, like when it turns out ontop of his already ridiculous power levels Deku is going to get another however many quirks.
    My problem is that we don't really see much to say that any other quirks are city destroying when All might, AFO and now Shri can now do it easily.

    I'm in Malaysia. I remember some time ago when a forumite linked me to the Vigilante manga, I couldn't read it either. That's how it is I guess. Whatever mangaplus is, it must be legit if it links from the Viz site, so that's a positive thing.

    I mean I've never felt that but yeah, this is a... a change.

    God I love My Hero so much.

    Also, concerning other city destroying powers: Y'all just forgot Todoroki froze half of an entire stadium because he got a little mad huh, people who think the power scaling in this series is too much. These abilities are incredibly powerful.

    *Nods* , in Episode 4 of the anime / 3 of the manga we already have a character who can knock over a robot that is at least 100 feet tall and it appears to be 200is feet tall in the manga and at least 300 feet tall in the anime. (Most of the buildings are at least 10 stories in the manga, but there appears in some panels to have buildings that are larger than 10 stories and we never see their maximum height.) In episode 15 of the anime, the palm width of the robot (not counting the fingers) seems to be at least 30 feet across. For comparison men palm width is usually about 3.3 inches so we are talking a scale that is not consistent with the robots but at least several hundred feet tall in the anime.

    And these zero point robot was knocking down these buildings effortlessly without losing its center of gravity, yet could be toppled by excessive force by at least 2 undergrads.

    Such robots were a skyscrape destroying threat, and if heroes can knock down skyscraper size robots doing the same thing to buildings should also apply.

    -----

    And via the High-End vs Endeavor fight we know that this is capable of the Nomu doing this and not just All Might and All for One. So yeah Skyscraper destroying feats in one attack was inevitable. The slightly higher scale of city destruction with 1 attack though was unforseen.

    They seem to be about A tier avenger level to me. Bakugo is essentially sweaty Iron Man, and Deku used to be self-injuring Hulk. No one is Thor, Marvel or Scarlet Witch but that is a good thing setting wise.

    God I am so happy no one is Thor, Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, etc.

    Even though I love and adore several of those characters such as my Wiccan and his mom the Scarlet Witch. (Plus other insane power level characters.)

    I am just glad this silly level of power is not in MHA. In fact I am kind of frustrated that AfO and All Might are as powerful as they are sometimes.

    He didn't quite pick it up, but he did hold it up when it was going to fall on everyone.
