I’m still salty at that BNHA tiktoker 😭 the absolute garbage they speak is horrendous! Deku was the villain in the sludge villain incident 😐 she made it sound like he intentionally did it, he released the sludge villain she says like no he didn’t! Yes he distracted All Might who did not have the villain secure, which in turn made him drop it and then Bakugou kicked the bottle and the sludge villain then escaped. It was a catalyst of unfortunate events.
I’m also going to say it but she is one of those Bakugou stans who makes people go “ugh Bakugou stans”! I mean she literally says “Bakugou Katsuki has never done anything wrong in his entire life, stay mad” and then goes on to basically state that he’s got ADHD and PTSD. Now it’s fine to head canon things but for real acting like it’s canon is stupid, because she literally says that the reason people hate Bakugou is because they hate that he’s neurodivergent-coded and ADHD-coded and that they just hate people with ADHD. It’s not like people hate Bakugou because of his bullying or anything but go off I guess 🤷♀️ I hate it like the boy himself acknowledged his actions were wrong, he flaming apologised for said actions!
My Hero Academia would be the scariest world to live in because I know there's probably a motherfuker who has the quirk to bring fictional characters like to life, and if that motherfuker ever decides to turn evil, oh Lord, everyone in the damn show is f*****.
Tokoyami being ghosted by Hawks 😭 he just wants to know if he’s ok most likely! Man these adults sure do love ghosting their teenage students!
Hawks be like “I’m going to ghost the teen that saved my life because that’s not jerk behaviour at all” man all you got to do it reply, and if ya don’t want to talk because you busy or something a simple “can’t talk right now” or “I’m busy” would suffice! 100% think that Tokoyami should change his name to Endeavor, he definitely get an answer for sure then😂!
been holding back on my thoughts for chapter 327 cus i rlly dont want to be part of the negativity train but god
this panel felt like a punch in the gut lmao.
why would u go through the trouble of writing in such an interesting conflict btwn teacher and student only to end it w a "i am here!... to say sorry hehehe" like 10 chapters later... the tonal shift from toshi's conversation with stain to this chapter honestly gave me wiplash.
then again, horikoshi is clearly going through something behind the scenes, considering the amt of breaks he's been taking/lack of episode sketches/general rushiness of the whole villain hunt arc. idk, i seriously want to give the benefit of the doubt that hori is just not on his A game atm...
...but its still kinda irksome that, as it stands, the main character of mha has processed precisely 0% of his own trauma since the plw /hyp. there have been so many moments in this arc that (imo?) were perfect opportunities to expand on izuku's character and could have given us some insight into his thoughts/perspective... like the AFO hologram speech. or lady nagant exploding in his face. or deku vs class 1a. or bakugo's apology. or most recently, uraraka sticking up for him in front of the civillian mob.
if any of those scenes were drawn out just a liiiiittle bit more, and had a liiiiiiittle bit more depth, i feel like izuku's character would feel so much more realistic and understandable. like i really think it's mostly just a pacing issue. but within each of those moments, all we really got was the occasional, non-reflective, inner monologue from izuku. and now, in the end of the arc, his character is essentially right where we left off, just with heavier eye bags. LOL.
and like, i don't hate everything about this chapter.
seeing all might reignite his resolve to keep fighting after his talk with stain feels nice. it's a cool progression from his talk with aizawa: "ive decided to keep living" -> "ive decided to keep fighting". it makes me wonder where and how his character arc is going to conclude.
and hearing these words from the class 1a kids really gives me hope for the direction the series is going to take in its finale. these kids understand that the world they've been living in is deeply flawed, that the only way to solve anything is to get to the root of the issues with society and make lasting change.
anyways, its sorta hard to critique weekly manga bc we'll never know the full scope of the story until the very last chapter. im just really hoping that we get some form of deep reflection from izuku's character before mha is finished. not just him having dialogue with other characters, not just general mc narration, but actual thoughts and introspection regarding everything he's seen and done since the beginning of the series. :D
#me: i dont wanna hop on the ch 327 hate train #also me: 🤸🏻♂️🚞 #sorry guys i dont think ill ever stop being a bitter deku stan #anyways pls dont take this too seriously haha i still trust hori to give us a satisfying ending #mha is my favorite manga so this all comes from a place of love BFJDJDK #bnha#bnha spoilers#izuku#toshi#class 1a#bnha 327#long post #just in case hahaha #text
Previously on BnHA: All Might was all “time to drive down to the unsettlingly symbolic location of my last stand to lament over my various failures.” Stain was all “okay listen up bro, we need to have a talk. what you need to understand is that your list of accomplishments and struggles doesn’t just begin and end with you. it’s about that legacy, bro. it’s about the lives you’ve impacted. it’s about the people you’ve inspired, for instance that woman over there who appeared out of nowhere with perfect timing just now to clean up your defaced statue. it’s like that. anyway, so here’s a piece of paper I stole from Tartarus that might be important to the plot. sincerely, Stain. p.s. please feel free to come and kill me anytime.” Anyway so what the fuck is even going on.
Today on BnHA: Horikoshi is all “time for the one lighthearted chapter of hilarious class A antics that I’m contractually obligated to provide in between arcs, which will hopefully provide enough heartwarming content to sustain my readers during the next six months of backbreaking angst.” Deku is all “thank god somebody finally gave me a bath, now all I need is for All Might to show up for an awkward two-page reunion and after that I’m basically all set, unless there are any other topics the readers are waiting on me to address, which I am confident there are not.” Shouto is all “now that all of Deku’s interpersonal relationship angst has been fully resolved, which it definitely has, I just wanted to let you guys know that I also have angst still, but it’s okay because I’m compartmentalizing.” Jirou is all, “I know everyone is really bummed out right now, but remember that one time we had a band? that fucking ruled.” Hawks is all, “man I sure can’t believe what we just learned from the Tartarus security records that Stain gave All Might. this changes everything. too bad the chapter is about to end before I can explain any of it,” and yeah.
OH MY GOD
IDK ABOUT Y’ALL BUT IT SURE SOUNDS TO ME LIKE WE’RE ABOUT TO GET OUR MOTHERFUCKING BATH ON (*ﾟﾉOﾟ)
TIME TO DECONTAMINATE THIS FOUL ABOMINATION. LOOK AT YOU. LOOK AT THE STATE OF YOU. WHO FUCKING RAISED YOU BRO. NEVER MIND, WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK
YESSSSSSSSS. YEEHAW, BITCHES
omg Sero and Kouda’s faces. you guys are ruining the pacing of this moment by forcing me to stop what I’m doing and comment about you
omg. chapter of the year right here. “YOU’RE WELCOME, EVERYONE” yes thank you Horikoshi. now all I need is for you to throw in some bonus Kacchan so we can finally see his shiny new scars, or is that too much to hope for lol
“YOU’RE WELCOME, MAKESTE” YES OKAY VERY GOOD, I WITHDRAW MY COMPLAINT
omg. there he is. look at those things. how big were those wounds, anyway??
(ETA: you have no idea how many times I had to rewrite this comment to make sure it was free from innuendos, and I’m still not 100% sure about it lol. on an unrelated note, 10/10 onomatopoeia there as well.)
(ETA 2: so according to the official translation which is light years more accurate than the scanlation this week, he’s actually saying that they should have scrubbed Deku off with (undiluted) detergent lol. I mean, I can’t really argue with him though. real talk, I would not have gotten in there with them, that water is already contaminated sob. gonna have to write off the whole tub. possibly the whole building.)
“pardon, but I was told you had completed your redemption arc, and yet you are still using your outdoor voice in inappropriate situations. this is unacceptable and I would like to speak to your manager.” lol
friends, it wasn’t easy, but after two seconds of deep contemplation I’ve decided that this panel of Kacchan obstinately hurdling into the bath in response to being told he lacks character development is in fact the greatest moment in the entire series. shout out to all of the other moments you had a good run. but it’s the goat right here
OH MY HEAVENS
holy shit THAT’S A WHOLE LOT OF CONTENT YOU JUST DUMPED ON ME IN THE SPAN OF FOUR PANELS HORIKOSHI MY MAN
HE HASN’T GIVEN UP ON NUMBER ONE. not that this is exactly breaking news or anything lol. but you know what, after seeing so much cynicism from the fandom about whether or not Kacchan will continue to be important to the plot, it’s nice to see that the man himself doesn’t share the same pessimism
the fucking bonus splash aimed SPECIFICALLY AT DEKU. just rival things!!!!!
and also, the fact that he felt compelled to clarify that just because he’s sorry for being a total shithead to Deku for their entire childhood doesn’t mean he’s about to give up their rivalry. lol I suspect some people won’t be too happy about this (but those people will continue to hate him no matter what so it’s not really worth trying to convince them), but I for one am thrilled
HE CORRECTED HIMSELF MID-SENTENCE. omg??! I suddenly had like a thousand thoughts and a wholeass epiphany that I have no clue how to articulate??? whatever lol, future me get on this
(ETA: first of all, past me really screwed me over on this one sob. and second, my essay on this ended up being long enough that I moved it to its own post. WHY MUST THESE TWO ALWAYS MAKE ME FEEL THINGS DAMMIT.)
“DEKU IS FINE” lol so I’m not the only one weirded out by it then huh. Kacchan you heard the man. also glad to see that Kacchan is still “Kacchan” and Deku never gave that a second thought. I’d seen a few people excitedly wondering if he would switch to “Katsuki”, and I’ll be honest, I have no idea what the appeal of that is. “Kacchan” is a marker of their childhood friendship, and Deku’s refusal to give up that last piece of it. and every time he uses it, and Kacchan accepts it without a word, it’s a reminder that he never fully let go of that bond either. so yeah, not to be melodramatic, but you can pry “Kacchan” out of my cold dead hands lol. besides it would break Deku’s brain if he tried to use anything else
meanwhile the rest of their classmates are taking absolutely no interest in the two of them exchanging words for the first time post-apology, and I have never related to these children less. don’t you guys have even the slightest bit of curiosity?? so respectful of their privacy even as you openly plot Kacchan’s murder omg
oh fuck yeah, now we’re talking
so does this really mean we’re actually going to get the entire chapter dedicated to domestic class 1-A antics?? here I thought we were done with those. not that I’m complaining, mind! far from it
HE IS CLEAN!!!! omgggg
he still looks tired af and maybe they should give some consideration to the fact that he hasn’t slept in 26 days before they start grilling him about OFA or whatever, but eh
(ETA: this scanlation is such a mess lol. so in the actual translation Mina doesn’t ask him about OFA, but rather says that she and the others got Deku’s letters, which prompts all of them to immediately jump in with their hot takes that they’ve all been sitting on. there you go kids, you’re relatable again lol.)
way to give him the widest possible berth you guys. that’s some admirable social distancing at work, but I thought he was clean now
love how they all start chiming in with their thoughts without waiting for an answer lol. also Sero’s pretty much got a handle on the essence of it
yes!! thank you!!
glad to see at least one person here has some common sense. don’t suppose any of these kids thought to feed him either. of course not
shit no not the bentogate angst
Horikoshi I swear to god you had better do something about this, or else I am holding you personally and financially responsible for my therapy bills
on the bright side though, Shouto!! fucking thank you. in the interests of giving the other kids the benefit of the doubt, I’m gonna go ahead and assume they were saving the extra seats for him and Iida. how sweet of them
SWEET JESUS FUCK
HOLY FUCK. HOLY SHIT. WHAT THE FUCK
CAN YOU COME INSIDE LIKE A NORMAL PERSON!??! IS THERE SOME PRESSING REASON YOU NEED TO BE STANDING THERE IN THE DEAD OF NIGHTWITH YOUR FACE PRESSED UP AGAINST THE WINDOW LOOKING LIKE THE FUCKING CRYPTKEEPER JESUS CHRIST. ARE YOU HERE TO APOLOGIZE TO HIM OR TAKE HIS MORTAL SOUL?? I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS PARANORMAL ACTIVITY BULLSHIT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY DOMESTIC BATH CHAPTER YOU FUCKING SADIST
“if you thought the BakuDeku reunion slash apology scene was too rushed and not nearly intimate enough, watch this!” Horikoshi you do know this is not a stat you should be looking to build on, right?? fffsdflkjd
for real though, now all the other kids are walking over to him now too, because of course they are lol. we’re all gonna get in on this then I guess. Mina is all “I DEMAND JUSTICE FOR HOW YOU PERSONALLY WRONGED ME, ALL MIGHT”
to be fair she does have a point though
so now All Might is all “sorry for worrying you all, but the good news is I’ve obtained some critical new plot information! and also I’m apparently determined to join the final battle, which yikes, but I’m not gonna tell you that heehee, and apparently I’m not gonna tell you what the important plot information is either, so I’m not really sure why I even mentioned it, actually”
I don’t know what I was expecting sob. smdh lol All Might I love you so much but why are you like this
though is it weird that I’m oddly getting fewer death flag vibes from this than I have from him in a while though? idk, maybe it’s the fact that he clearly has more character development work to do (unless Horikoshi actually thinks this is progress lol), or maybe it’s the fact that he actually got his reunion with Deku which takes away a lot of the angst potential. or maybe I’m just trying to justify the fact that I’m weirdly excited to see All Might kick some ass again. maybe he can defeat the villains by sneaking into their living rooms in the middle of the night and pressing his creepy skeleton face against their windows to give them a few heart attacks
meanwhile Deku is out here interrupting my rambling tangents with feels
Deku showing how it’s done. see how he just gets straight to the point without any of the emotional constipation, All Might?? the way he just comes right out and immediately says the thing that he was wishing he had said to you earlier?
sob and all All Might says in response is “thank you” lol okay then. why do I stan this man so hard. we’re just gonna have to get you some long-overdue therapy when this is all said and done I guess
anyway so now he’s leaving again, and I’m gonna have to press pause on my All Might commentary to post these last two panels, because Tokoyami’s increasingly frustrated griping about Hawks ignoring his calls is hitting me right in the feels goddammit
honestly, someone get Hawks on the phone right now. this kid saved your fucking life and you just took off afterwards without so much as a word? really gonna need the mentor figures in BnHA to step up their game here
(ETA: so I was doing some more thinking about this, and came to the conclusion that Hawks is doing that emotional avoidance thing that he’s been doing since childhood where he kind of puts mental distance between himself and whatever is upsetting him that he isn’t really ready or able to face yet. like, I’m already halfway through writing yet another essay about it lol. I’ll put it in its own post though because I’m trying to actually get this post up sometime before Christmas sob.)
so now Shouto is explaining that Hawks and the others are still experiencing the fallout from Dabi’s shirtless manifesto, so they’re not exactly at liberty to come visit right now. I guess someone finally saw through the infamous trenchcoat disguise lol
the unencumbered blissful sleep of someone who has smoothly checked off all of the urgent, high-priority interpersonal relationship conversations on his to-do list, and definitely isn’t forgetting and/or avoiding any of them, no sir
and Shouto with the blanket omg!!!!
idk what it is with BnHA lately, but I am fully on board with this whole “let’s just take all of the fluffiest fanfic tropes and make them canon” thing lol. Eri and Bakugou babysitting hijinks, Kacchan calling him “Izuku”, TodoDeku domesticity; the list goes on
anyway but now we’re moving on to Shouto angst now so that’s fun
(ETA: so just to clarify why I am using the scanlation version for these screencaps even though Viz’s version was released almost two days ago, it’s because I have had the rough draft of this post open on my browser literally since Saturday lol. it’s just taken forever to get done, and so I’ll be real, I really don’t feel like reuploading all these panels lol. anyway but yeah, so Shouto is actually saying that he’s kind of on the public’s shitlist as well just for being associated with Endeavor. which sucks, obviously. poor kid.)
is there anything better than the way Kacchan shoots these I’m-definitely-not-worried-about-him-at-all glances at Shouto out of the corner of his eye like this. let me save you some time, that was a rhetorical question because the answer is no
anyway but two seconds later Shouto is all “but I’m actually fine too”, because apparently this is the chapter where everyone talks about their angst for two and a half panels and then smiles and says “but you gotta appreciate the little victories in life” or whatever lol
this is in no way a mark against this chapter, which is excellent, but I do have to say that chapters like this definitely make it a lot harder to do my style of reaction post because there is nothing to make fun of lmao. why are you kids so damn wholesome
I have no idea who they’re talking about as far as “evacuees who still respect him all the same” btw. feel free to elaborate any time Horikoshi
(ETA: yeah like I said this translation was a hot mess lol.)
so now Jirou’s just randomly grabbing her two friends with benefits and dragging them close to her out of the blue
once again, no idea what’s going on, but this is quality fucking content, I know that much
LOL SHE’S GRABBING THE GREMLIN TOO. OMG IT’S A BAND THING AHHH
you’re gonna murder AFO with sound!! wonderful!!
OH MY FUCKING LORD
moment of silence for the panel of Kacchan pouncing into the bath. you were the goat for eight wonderful pages. sadly there is now a new king in town. the wheel is always turning
so the next couple of pages are just everyone smiling and being all “YEAH PLUS ULTRA WOOO WILDCATS GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME”, and it’s all very well and good, but I’m kinda thinking about that upcoming cliffhanger now once again though and getting a little antsy lol
okay here we go. Hawks and Jeanist talking about Ujiko and TomurAFO
damn you guys still have two whole months?? the way Deku was running around acting like the world was about to explode, I figured it was way less than that
ah okay, so they actually have one month left, not two. wtf
no fucking way Deku was out there doing his thing for two months. that would make it what, June?? or late May at the very least? you’re telling me we missed Kacchan’s birthday and the anniversary of the sports festival? and that Shinsou has been robbed of two more months of hero education?? Shinsou honey I’m so sorry Horikoshi is determined to pretend like he forgot you exist. I’m hoping he is saving you for something cool and awesome to make up for all of this bullshit. you deserve better sweetie
wtf can you guys make up your fucking minds already damn
okay?? so how many months do you have, then?? two?? one?? four?? twelve??
oh my god
“well you were saying you wanted something to make fun of” YES BUT NOT LIKE THIS, THIS IS JUST CONFUSING AND STRANGE. “HERE DEKU, HAVE A BATH. AND NOW HERE’S ALL MIGHT, SORRY ABOUT THE STUFF AND THE THINGS BUT EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE, ANYWAYS BYE NOW. HEY AND REMEMBER THE BAND, THAT WAS AWESOME. AND NOW HERE ARE HAWKS AND JEANIST, AND THEY GOT SOME DATA FROM TARTARUS AND IT’S GONNA BLOW YOUR MINDS, BUT WE CAN’T SHOW YOU WHAT IT IS BECAUSE WHOOPS, THE CHAPTER IS ENDING NOW LOL.” okay??
how do I even end this post now lol. fuck it, if Horikoshi’s not gonna make an effort I’m not going to bother either. at least we finally got the bath, and at the end of the day that’s all that matters

I met her in winter when I was 13, nobody knew where I was and that was the good thing. I got to be away from all of them, deku, old hag and just everyone. When she walked up to the lake she was wearing a white fur coat, her beige turtleneck sweater barely poking out from under the garment, foot warmers (she gave me a matching one two days later as a gift), and the most ridiculous boots I've ever seen. They were so fuzzy I almost gagged at the thought, but she looked good like some fucking snow goddess.
Her face was obscured by the snow, hair in her face as she stood and looked over the lake. The song playing was underneath the tree, the rainbow tree lights flashed and blinked. I saw a smile spread across her face before she giggled and let herself fall backwards.
I remember tching at her actions, figuring i was just annoyed at her disturbing my alone time, so i did the less me thing and turned away from her and gazed at the little town i was in.
"Are you ok? Your lips are turning blue.." I opened my eyes to yell at whoever was disturbing my quiet only to see her staring down at me, hand on my forehead. Most likely checking whether i needed to go to the hospital for hypothermia treatment. As I looked into her eyes for what would be the first time of many, I had this gut feeling. I could tell that If the world was burning into a pile of smoke and rubble it would stop its self-destruction to gaze into her eyes just as I was at that moment.
It was the stupidest thing i had ever felt, yet i couldn't feel myself craving its departure. When looking at her i felt my lungs release all their air and my heart beat just a bit louder in hopes hers would do the same as i tried to bite back the urge to say something stupid. Something that i knew would make her go away, leave me alone in the cold.
I saw that smile again, the one she had when she fell into the thick snow. Up close she was just as original and beautiful as every snowflake carved by mother nature. It tugged at me like nothing had. If she, a stranger. Had asked me to come with her to the bottom of the deepest ocean i would do it in a heartbeat, just to feel that pure adoration and infatuation again.
A/n) I had a panic attack today but on the bright side I’m motivated so take this while I have it 😏
I vote that Best Jeanist and Aoyama should meet as they have many similar personality traits and I think they'd be able to learn from each other instead of having a one sided relationship (if Jeanist could recognize himself in Aoyama because again they are similar and not always in the most positive of ways)
Curious: A brief request that I imagine will fall on deaf ears. Consider mercy for these men.
Toga: Mercy? For the men who plan my assassination?
Curious: They're foolish. Influenced by greed. And they greatly fear your leader.
Toga: You're right. They are foolish. They fear the wrong person. No mercy. If they want blood, I will give it to them.
