Superheroes, villains, schools, manga, teen, fiction.

Rating 9/10

Tomura Shigaraki was Tenko Shimura, that was before he got his quirk that ultimately changed his life. His quirk makes people deteriorate into pieces. That is his origin story of how he became Tomura Shigaraki and feared by most. The Meta Liberation Army decided to pick a fight with Tomura, that was their worst mistake because Shigaraki’s quirk should never be under estimated. The Meta Liberation Army is defeated, and the Commander pledges the entire Army to and under Shigaraki. Deku and his fellow classmates learn how to do interviews on television. Eri celebrates her first Christmas with class 1A and the season is full of joy. While Shoto asks Deku and Bakugo if they want to work at his father’s agency, the Meta Human Liberation Army continues their plotting with a new leader.

This manga gave me overwhelming amount of emotions from the first page until the very last page. One of them was Tomura Shigaraki’s origin story that had me crying. This quirk was so traumatizing and so horrible to the point I understand why he became who he currently is. Another scene that had me balling my eyes out was Eri celebrating Christmas, but she was wearing a cute Santa Outfit and was so cute and adorable about it. That tugged hard at my heart strings the most. The poor kid suffered and deserves the whole world. I loved this book especially for that scene. I do suggest reading this entire manga series as well as watch the anime series too. Both are good, and the anime remains true to the manga. However, season 5 is in the works from the last I heard about and I hope they continue to remain true for anime series. Otherwise, I might have some issues in regards of the directing and production of the next season. To catch up, I think Hulu does offer all four seasons dubbed and subbed, for sure Funimation has them up to date with the dubs and subs.
