The series has already dropped one of its biggest bombs by killing off the hard-to-hate villain, Tomura Shigaraki. Despite his fateful end, his complex and layered character still lives on in the hearty narrative. The forthcoming chapter of the beloved manga will embark on a rollercoaster ride of emotions Deku finally helps Spinner get closure about his dear friend’s death.

Renowned My Hero Academia scooper @RukasuMHA dropped the spoilers for the next chapter titled “Who Was Tomura Shigaraki?” The self-explanatory title goes to great lengths in drawing parallels between how the general public views Shigaraki as a villain – nothing more, nothing less – whereas Spinner’s words reveal a humane side of the character that others will never have an insight into.

Much like its name, the chapter too begins its profound conversation with a TV program playing in the background – “Who Was Tomura Shigaraki?” A reporter rounds up the views of people on the street, questioning them about their thoughts on the villain. While some didn’t care to sugarcoat their views and outrightly declared him a murderer, other people described him as a scary individual whose death brought them utter relief. A third man claimed that he never envisioned Shigaraki becoming such a lethal threat. In the meantime, the broadcast also depicts the city in ruins, showing the slow progress of its rehabilitation.

Eventually, Deku and Spinner become the focus of the narrative. In the hospital, the doctor tells the former how AFO’s quirks were turning him into a nomu. Their latest research allows them to stop the process. Spinner doesn’t go easy on Deku and labels him a “murderer.”

Deku doesn’t find these claims irksome and confesses that he came to relay Shigaraki’s message to him. Deku’s response leaves Spinner dumbfounded as he finally reveals his friend’s final words, “Tomura Shigaraki fought to the very end to destroy.”

Although Spinner doesn’t mindlessly accept his claims initially, Deku confirms that his message was only directed to him. He later tells Deku that he always saw Tomura as a hopeful beacon. Spinner’s emotional despair translated into his growing size. Even though he contemplates that he should stop thinking so that he doesn’t hurt himself, he continues talking about Shigaraki and expresses how grateful he is to him for including him to be a part of something bigger than himself.

The doctor attempts to intervene, but Deku stops him from coming closer. Spinner ultimately speaks his heart to Deku, confessing that Tomura Shigaraki was his hero. Simultaneously, the narrative contrasts his words with people being interviewed on TV. A man is heard saying, “He was a villain with no ideals who only wanted to destroy.” Antithetically. Spinner grounds his character as a person with human qualities, adding that Shigaraki loved video games. People on the TV begin unravelling his past, but their thoughts and lack of empathy are miles apart from Spinner’s thoughts on him.

Thereafter, Deku shares Shigaraki’s words, “I have to become a hero to them,” revealing that his heart felt deeply for the League. He tries consoling Spinner, reminding him that Shigaraki must have thought the same about him, which is why he sought to pass on his message to him.

Spinner expresses his regretful thoughts, claiming that had he realised what was troubling his friend, he could have helped him more effectively. Additionally, he mulls over writing a book about Shigaraki, but Deku recommends that he write a comic instead.

Alluding to Mezo Shoji, Spinner passes on a message for the “octopus” to do his best.

After his meet-up with Spinner, Deku turns to All Might and Tsukauchi in the hospital. The latter details how Kai Chisaki got arrested again, and the Hassaikai boss decided to visit him. Chisaki thought he was in a coma, but his treatment helped negate the Overhaul quirk’s impact on him. The two engage in a serious conversation as the boss (also Eri’s grandfather) advises him to apologise to Eri for his actions for the rest of his life, claiming he has no right to forget what he put her through.

Deku thanks Tsukauchi, affirming that this was a better alternative than forcing Eri to relive all her trauma. Later, All Might tells Deku he should go back to school because the new first-year students have arrived. In his response, Deku tells him that the hero course has a few extracurricular activities, which might keep them apart for a while.

The chapter’s final page allegedly shows girls shouting, “Todoroki-senpai! Dynamight-senpai!” as they chase after them, while Bakugo conversely responds by screaming, “All these girls need to get expelled.”

According to the My Hero Academia scooper, the series will also witness its final break next week. Horikoshi’s magnum opus is expected to conclude the extended epilogue in August, serving as a final goodbye to the characters and the storyline.
