    God I love this series. I like how Twice is still messed up, I like how Compress (who lost an arm in their last major fight) is basically untouched this time because he's not having anything happen to him anymore if he can help it. I like Toga's eyepatch even if it likely won't stay, and how I'm pretty sure she stole Curious's coat, or at least her style. Shigaraki, obsessed with touch and feel, scratching at the bristles on his coat is also cute.

    Also Hawks being like "oh wow I really ****ed up oh god" was real, real good. I'm excited to see if they know he's a traitor or not. I also like the new name of their group, "Paranormal" is a fascinating term.

    I mean in the strictest of sense yeah, probably. She doesn't permanently hold it, she has it as long as the blood is digesting. Incidently her insides must process stuff pretty differently from other people, since blood is so lacking in any actual nutrients that it rockets through the system.

    Hawks finds himself in the wrong genre altogether, as the protagonist of an espionage thriller. Can he get the word out in time? Are the villains already on to him? What other terrible things will he have to do to earn their trust and access the intel he needs?

    The fact that he knows the truth of the fight in the city should already be a pretty big deal, though he probably can't prove any of it.

    Seeing Gigan just chilling in the crowd is pretty funny also.

    My new pet theory: Hawk gets killed, but manages to gets a few info to Endeavor. Endeavor's past gets outed, the political side of the Liberation Front gains traction, and Endeavor escapes "justice" because of what Hawk told him and becomes an illegal vigilante.

    Except Endeavor dont have a past to out. And i cant see what sort of Justice he would want to escape.

    Heh.. else Shoto is hilariously ignorant of what goes on around him.
    Guess he has lived an extremely sheltered life.

    You're assuming that the fact Endeavor abused his wife so badly for so long she is permanently in a mental institute is public knowledge...

    My theory was Dabi exposing the way he abused his family, and the propaganda/political sides of the Liberation Front focusing fire on him until his license gets revoked, or something.

    Im not assuming anything. Endeavor is clearly a powerful person, and so likely has the influence to cover up his dirty laundry.

    The problem is that his wife is in a mental institute after having attacked her own son.
    Thats to start with likely public knowledge, but ignored because mental health is such a massive tabu.

    And furthermore, any potential abuse has likely been psychical, so its utterly impossible to prove.
    But when Dabi suddenly attacks a prominent public figure, then the burden of proof lies with him.
    With that, as well as how easy it is to place all blame on his wife for being mentally unstable, then its likely impossible to make anything stick to Endevor.

    I mean. It's not like Endeavor has a child who is also in the hero industry, has just had a (larger than usual) spotlight put on him so he'll be fresh in the public's mind, and would immediatelt be beset by paparazzi to confirm or deny the allegations of abuse.

    Except now Supervillain Fox News is going to be running editorial hit pieces on the regular.

    He doesn't have the influence any more, because one of the biggest media outlets in the country is working directly for the villains, and the court of public opinion does not run on proof.

    No thats incorrect. Endevor does indeed have a child who are a rising star in the hero industry.
    Unfortunately thats only going to make it even worse to sling mud at Endevor.
    He is already standing on a shinning pillar after getting wounded defending the town.
    And if he want to he can point to Shoto and go "look at him, crushing crime, winning hearts, from day one as a provincialy licenced hero"
    "Yes i was tough on him, but only because i love him. It made him to the Hero who will surpass me"

    Endeavour has a child who hates him and who might let some truth out when doorstepped in an unguarded moment by a hostile press. He has a wife in a mental hospital that an unscrupulous journo might get access to and find out truth from.

    And he's not actually popular so people will readily believe bad things about him.

    Endeavour is very vulnerable to hostile PR.

    I envy your innocence then.
    To start with, we dont know that he actually laid hands on his Wife. At least not unless you have alternative sources.
    Secondly, both pay notice to just how good people are at ignoring unpleasant details about the past in people they admire.
    As well as how insane hero training is. How many bones have Deku broken by now?
    Combined with Todokori only being 5 there, and he is suddenly no longer a reliable witness.

    Endeavour has a child who hates him and who might let some truth out when doorstepped in an unguarded moment by a hostile press. He has a wife in a mental hospital that an unscrupulous journo might get access to and find out truth from.

    And he's not actually popular so people will readily believe bad things about him.

    Yes. Endevor likely has a child who hates him. Thankfully said child is a villain, so his oppinion hardly matters.
    His other relevant child merely dislikes him intensely. But not so much said child wasnt still willing to learn from his despised father.
    And no, said Child is -extremely- proficient at stonewalling. At best, ambushing Todoroki will get a polite "no comment"

    Said wife meanwhile, were still willing to defend her husband before her kids, any journalist getting access will likely just get her screaming "intruder!"

    And no Endevor might not be liked, but he is still greatly admired after getting wounded in the fight to defend Tokyo.
    Face it, right now he is close to a war hero, and INvulnerable to hostile PR, unless you controll -all- the media.

    Enough complaining about Endeavor let's focus on the actual chapter contents.

    Doing media exercises makes a LOT of sense, heroes should do that obviously. It's an important part of hero work! And it's nice to see Bakugo actually being GOOD at this, as long as he's... solo. Also, a part of me does feel bad laughing because part of Todoroki's obliviousness probably comes from lack of proper socialization as a kid.

    Also it was mentioned by GloatingSwine and I'm really, really going to emphasize it again just in case anyone missed it: KAMINARI DID THE LIBERATION SALUTE. THAT'S... CONCERNING.

    No, Kaminari did the "finger gun" gesture that he uses to point his electricity.

    Now, is it possible that someone from the MLA PLF can mistake the gesture for a salute and assume he is some sort of man on thw inside, for the sake of shenanigans and/or making Kaminari more plot relevant for a bit? Absolutely.

    Also, this is a mock inteeview that is unlikely to see the light of day. Why bother making such a signal of nobody is going to see it.

    While this is true he does finger guns a lot, the very specific thumb to forehead to make an L pose, plus his expression, is unquestionably at the very least a concern. And given the rest of this series, I don't put much stock in "oh it's just a coincidence". The writing has made it clear that there's no such thing as that. The noumu with wings was Deku's old school bully and the doctor he met as a kid works for All For One to make noumu. Nothing just happens for no reason. Sometimes it's a silly overblown thing because Deku doesn't know how to write in his journal without sounding intense and we get Aoyama's little mini-arc... but other times we do get some legitimate Stuff, that we're expected to have paid attention to.

    Because for some hand based reason, the Liberation Army might be feeling a bit more emboldened, and he might be intending to show his true colours soon. Or you know, he's proud and doing it even though no one will get it. Or, not to be TOO conspiracy theory since I don't buy this one at all, but I mean Mt Lady suddenly being motivated sure is A Thing to consider.

    But yeah, look, I... look at Kaminari's expression too when he does it. That's not his normal look at all.

    It is rather suspicious, especially considering this is happening the chapter right after the villainous interlude is finished and the Liberation Army will still be front and center in most people's minds. If it had happened later, I would be more willing to ascribe it to coincidence, but right after? It feels like foreshadowing to reveal Kaminari has LA sympathies considering Destro's beliefs were pretty popular it seems.

    This is another reference to the Japanese culture idea of Wishing Dolls, Daruma Dolls. [Aka the Alias that the evil Doctor is using who is working with Tomura Shigaraki.]

    Your Desire / Your Wish is a promise you make. Then you "Do your Best" aka you Endeavor towards that goal, that ideal self, that wish / dream off to the horizon.

    My point here is the author, Kohei Horikoshi is really beating this theme into the readers. Some of this is lost in cultural translation.

    But yeah each of the MHA and Shigaraki is missing a different aspect of the wishing doll ritual, for example Bakugou does not know what he wants to be, he does not know how to model himself, he is so connected to his gut, his instinct that he does not have something to further refine himself towards.

    While people like Izuku and Ochako may struggle with a different aspect of life.

    God I love this series for it is an ideal mixture of themes, characters, but also slice of life and everything else.

    Them giving up on looking for the traitor is actually a trap to find the traitor.

    No matter what Shota Aizawa is not a person who can't be vigilant. The way to trick Shoto vigilance in looking for something that is off is to have multiple deceptions and have one deception turn his attention away from the real deception you want to perform.

    So yeah the traitor thing is not gone, it will come back again. That is just good storytelling as Elan would say.

    I wasn't saying the traitor thing was gone, I was just saying that it seems as if the staff are dismissing it as being a student at the moment. You do have an absolute point that Eraserhead is probably keeping an eye on them still, and that this is a trap to catch someone (Kaminari) but we will see.

    What I want to see is if Tokoyami goes with Hawks again, and if he does what will happen there...

    Interesting with your last sentence. I am too wondering what will happen next.

    It.. is likely going to get really interesting on that internship.
    Endeavor has been growing into the role of hero.
    And the comic has been slowly creating a sort of connection between the 3 students in the top of the class.

    It's also really funny that Deku, straight off the heels of "learn how to interact with media" class, goes to Endeavor.

    Endeavor.
