I actually liked that it wasn't Dabi horrifically burning himself that made him the monster he is today.

That tends to be a really common sort of trope in fiction, in which its the accident which was the catalyst of the neglect or object of the villains obsessions that drives them down an irredeemable path, but in this case, it wasn't the accident that finally broke Dabi, it was Dabi realizing that even the death of his oldest son wasn't enough to make Endeavour give up on his selfish dream.

I think this works fair better thematically, as it far more strongly ties into a more justifiable personal rationalisation. He wasn't angry with Endeavour for not showing up. He was angry with Endeavour, for not changing afterwards. Its only after that did he realize what an absolute piece of garbage Endeavour was at that point in his life.

Its actually a good motivation for a horror villain.

I'm looking forward Deku vs AFO 🧐

Won't be happy until then
Thats not happening. At least not directly. Looks like if they do fight, it'll be in the vestige world, or it'll be the Shigaraki/AFO hybrid.
 
The Todoraki family drama is the only reason I'm still reading MHA tbh. I'm all in for it and hope the Dabi vs Shoto battle isn't going to be too rushed but I know that it will be. Everything is being too rushed which brings this series way down, still can't get over how much time was wasted on the boring af school festival while everything else that is vital to story progression is skipped over and rushed smh.

I mean, this has always been the case I'd say. Its most noticeable now, but MHA has always been incredibly fast paced for a shonen manga.

The chapter begins with Hawks and Jeanist discussing AFO's greatest weakness: the mask.

Stain's stolen records from Tartarus allowed them to see that he escaped from the prison while carrying that huge chair, so he needs these breathing apparatus to stay alive.

Therefore, their strategy was based on gathering a small number of heroes with considerable offensive power to strike in sequence and destroy the mask.

Back to the present and we see Endeavor and Hawks advancing with everything.

AFO throws air slashes but Endeavor blocks with Hell Curtain, giving Hawks a chance to throw some feathers that catch fire and fly towards All for One.

All for One realizes where they are aiming and blocks the feathers.

Hawks tries to attack from behind with his feather swords, but AFO uses the goo that comes out from his finger to stop him.

He continues the taunting, saying that even Recovery Girl wasn't able to get his wings back to their former glory, but Hawks just laughs and says that both him and AFO are already way past their prime.

Endeavor joins them and begins to strike with a sequence of Vanishing Fists.

AFO thinks to himself that since it's a heat-based attack, he can't use the damage-reversal quirk to protect himself.

He assumes that the two of them will coordinate their attacks, but realizes that Endeavor is a little out of sync and makes a point of saying so out loud so they can hear.

All for One continues to make fun of Endeavor, saying that everyone in this war is playing their part.

They're all giving their best against the enemies in front of them, so it's not fair that only he has his head somewhere else.

In fact, he should be happy that the masterpiece got rid of the defective product.

Endeavor gets angrier but Hawks yells at him not to listen and asks him to remember what happened to All Migh in Kamino when he fell for these provocations.

That's when All for One says that, long ago, he was already keeping an eye on the result of Endeavor's relentless search for power.

He's the kind of guy who doesn't miss a chance to plant a seed when he finds good soil, and then comes the final blow, "You didn't find Touya's body back in the day, did you?"

Hawks realizes that this is not good at all, and comes to the conclusion that someone like Endeavor, who has decided to go on living to pay for his mistakes, is fundamentally different from Hawks himself, who has turned his back on his mother and father.

He would not in fact have been able to face Dabi right now, so this team division was the right choice, and he has to do everything he can to support Endeavor.

He flies off in the direction of the two and tries to remind him to keep a cool head, that their mission is to destroy the mask.

But it was too late, because right after Endeavor yells "ALL FOR ONE" he receives an attack right in the side of his torso.

All for One has turned his hand into some creepy mouth with thorns and says "Right here.

You lowered your defenses ♪"

Hawks shouts Endeavor's name and tries to go to help, but AFO directs his hands at him and says that at this distance, the "Nagant replacement" would not be able to dodge.

When all seems lost.

HEARBEAT WALL!

Jirou arrives flying, riding Tokoyami.

Jirou asks Tokoyami not to swing too much, because she hasn't gotten used to flying yet and the situation there is very tense.

Hawks is in shock and says that they shouldn't be there, that if they don't run away soon they will die.

Tokoyami ignores the warning and says that although he's not as strong as Endeavor, he'll stay there to synchronize his attacks with Hawks'.

AFO calls the two of them insects that fly around One for All and says that in the comic book he read with his brother, several of the secondary characters were killed by the Demon King.

Jirou tells him to leave the fiddle-faddle to after he has defeated them.

End of chapter.

Jiro actually take a part against AFO :crazwhat:
Enjoy it because she won’t ever be as cool again

AFO did good against Endy and Hawks

It was a bit weird to know Hawks was indeed crippled by Dabi and won’t be a 100% anymore. I like that Dabi flame really did something but it would have been better to know that at the hospital or soon after
