Shinso showing up on a tree reminds me of Chunin Exams old days, when Gaara showed up on top of a tree.

Horikoshi sometimes goes full speed rushing the story, then we get very slow chapters like this one lmao.

The pacing is fucking nuts.
MHA is in a weird place where it feels like everything is moving too quickly, while at the same time, not much is actually happening.

We've been talking about the final battle since 327, and its 340 now.

How many chapters do you guys think are likely left for the series before coming to a quit? 🧐

I wish we got to see Nagant at least once more.
 
Everything with Aoyama feels a bit exaggerated now, were talking about a teen who was basically held hostage. I get he has to be held accountable but I feel like the "conflict" here is overblown.
A hero should put others ahead of themselves.

Yeah, he's a teen that was held hostage but his actions led to thousands of deaths, civil unrest & the possible resurgence of AfO. He also displayed a complete lack of trust that the heroes would understand or could protect him & his family. He even had a period where he thought AfO was imprisoned and didn't think to confess to All-Might who wouldn't have betrayed his trust.

The kid is a selfish nonce, he caused so much death & destruction and he is crying because 1-A thought he was their friend and that hurts him.

Yeah, and he admits that, and he didn't really cause that much death or destruction. Its not like he pulled the trigger at all. He was simply a cog.

The chapter begins with two civilians inside UA. passing a message between each other that All for One is back giving orders. He has asked them to create an uprising of some kind involving the refugees who still doubt the heroes. Shigaraki should be ready in less than a week, they need to make sure Midoriya gets out of the U.A again. In the dorms we see the students returning exhausted from patrol. Iida's new uniform allows his mask to disassemble automatically, and he tells them how important it is that they are out on the streets helping the professionals, that there is no time to complain or rest. Deku comments internally that he wanted at least some time to talk about something and looks at Uraraka. He is distressed that he hasn't been able to properly thank her yet.

All Might arrives at the dorm accompanied by Tsukauchi and Nezu. Momo asks if they have come to give news about Aoyama. Tsukauchi confirms and All Might says he also has one more matter, one that only a small group of people can know about: they will discuss Plan B for the final battle. Next we see a montage with several characters. Hawks, Ragdoll, Endeavor and Jeanist are talking in a destroyed room. Endeavor looks at a pad of papers and makes a sad face. Aizawa is in the hospital watching Kurogiri. Aoyama is in his cell and the students are listening to what All Might has to say.

The next day, the refugees are discussing an announcement the principal made earlier, he said that Shigaraki must start moving in just 4 days. The civilian from earlier in the chapter, who was passing the message from AFO, looks shocked. Class A is about to leave U.A. and thanks everyone. Kouta asks if Deku is really leaving and he confirms, saying that he has rested enough to get all the mud off. Snipe says that everyone's safety is their priority and asks them to remain calm even if the U.A. Barrier gets activated. The infiltrator thinks this is stupid and that the best thing to do would be for the heroes to stay in U.A., but he is satisfied that the order to "send Midoriya out" has been fulfilled somehow.

We see a sequence of panels of the students saying goodbye, showing Inko, the Todorokis, Bakugou and Jirou's parents, Eri, and even the giant lady shaking hands with Shouji. The class goes to a facility located 30 kilometers from U.A, called Troy. It was built by Cementoss, Powerloader and Ectoplasm and is much like the dormitories, with everyone having their own room. Deku looks out the window and sees that Uraraka is alone outside, so he jumps out and goes to meet her. After asking if she is done emptying her bags he thanks her for the speech she gave. She says that she didn't do anything too big, and that he's making a big deal out of something small, as he always does.


He asks why she was alone outside and she says she is watching the city. A moment of silence follows. She says she thinks she's strange, and Deku disagrees vehemently, citing several of her good points (her strength, courage, kindness, and even her hairstyle). Uraraka is embarrassed and asks him to stop. She thinks she is strange because at that moment, when she was speaking at the top of U.A., she remembered Toga. When they faced each other during Gigantomachia's stampede, Uraraka told her what she considered right, but Toga only replied with a sad expression. She understands that the destroyed city she now observes is a consequence of the actions of villains like Toga, but she feels uncomfortable not knowing what's her point of view.

He ends by saying they will stop Touya for sure and we see a glimpse of Deku and Uraraka watching the city once again. The chapter ends with All for One holding a communicator and saying "let's get started". The narration informs "day of the plan's start: today"

I actually liked this chapter quite a bit even just reading the summary. This is the sort of stuff I was hoping for with this set up period. Just some time to let the characters sort of "breathe" in a sense and interact with each other in anticipation for the next big blow out.

Would have liked more stuff like this and the prior two chapters, but it seems like we'll be moving onto the actual final battle. After at least 15 chapters of set up, I wonder how it'll turn out. It seems to have something to do with Deku leaving UA, so perhaps he is the target?

Solid chapter this week (at least compared to the other slow chapters), wished we'd got more from Shoto as far as reflecting on his brother's downfall though.

I've been hoping for nice character interactions for a while, and while this chapter was a bit cluttered, it had some nice character interactions, which makes it okay in my book.

In fact, the last 3 chapters in particular have had lots of nice character interactions. Hopefully we can maintain some semblance of character focus going into this final war.
