    One of the very few tournament arcs where I wasn't bored to tears (looking at you, Shokugeki no Soma) and as a matter of fact I actually enjoyed it! I'm glad it wasn't overly long and that they already introduced the character who will start up the next arc.Just have to say though ...(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]😭 ... my kokoro ...

    •those fights were EPIC. •Midoriya, Bakugo and (the star of this volume) Shoto Todoroki’s character development is what I’m living for right now. •seems like the plot is getting progressively darker. •some of the scenes almost made me cry. •Ochaco and Tenya are the cutest I love

    Hell yeah! Another amazing volume full of thrills, twists and even more impressive character development. What I loved about this tournament arc is how entirely unpredictable it was until the very end, and it served as a great base for getting more familiar with the characters as well as just being an insanely entertaining action romp. It reminded me a lot of Dragon Ball’s earlier Strongest Under The Heavens tournaments, which I hold as the golden standard for all manga tournaments, and I think Hell yeah! Another amazing volume full of thrills, twists and even more impressive character development.

Get me the next volume asap!

    Kohei Horikoshi and the assistants, back at it again with another FANTASTIC volume!!! This series just gets my heart racing and feeling good so much more than any other series out there!! It really pissed me off when my (ex)friend said they didn't like the series when they watched the anime, because the manga is so good!!! All the exclamation points!!!!!!!!! This series just gets me so hype because it's so good and I love it so much. The characters slay me and the story slays me and the fights s Kohei Horikoshi and the assistants, back at it again with another FANTASTIC volume!!!

This series just gets me so hype because it's so good and I love it so much. The characters slay me and the story slays me and the fights slay me and the art OBLITERATES MEEEEEEEEEE. Everytime I read this series I can't get over how much I love the art. It just hits me in all the right spots. Especially the fully-coloured chapter covers, holy shit. The one for chapter 44 with Bakugo on it (shown above), just, holy shit. I don't even know what words to describe it. I just had to stare at it for a good few minutes. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. *Edit:* This has the exact same effect on me every time I see it.... Wow.So yeah I guess this series is pretty good and I guess you get it, right? But, I do have a gripe about this volume. It has nothing to do with the story itself so it's not enough to affect my feelings towards that, but it's about the technicalities of the manga.A looootttt of times I can't tell who's talking, which is very annoying. There'll be text bubbles with words, but beats me because I don't know who's sayin' em. A lot of times there'll be no indent or spoke of any kind to indicate who the hell the bubble belongs to. So. Annoying!!! Also there were different types of bubbles that are different types of dialogue, which was confusing until I figured it out. For future reference: ❂ The bubbles with black spikes protruding all around them are a character recalling past dialogue. It is NOT their own thoughts which is how it is in other manga, which was very confusing. ❂ Internal thoughts are represented by floating bubble-less text and belong to the character in the panel in which the text first appears, and continues to belong to that character until the thought ends, even if the text is shown on top of another character.❂ Square "bubbles" are the future Izuku narrating the story.Other than those technicalities, 10/10. Unique characters, unique powers, awesome fights, and gorgeous art. My Hero Academia is a fresh new addition to the shonen genre.

Shouto needs *so* many hugs."Aiming for the top" and "What it means to be a hero", two of the main themes of the series, are in full focus in this volume. Aiming for the top I mentioned in the previous volume's review. Those who are truly striving to stand at the summit are the ones who will ultimately get there, and in a clash between two equally earnest wills, the results will lay with the technical stuff: whoever is the more skilled will be the winner. This seems to be Horikoshi's motto throughout the tournament, and he sticks by it. For the most part. For the fights he really wanted to write. It's hard to apply this to some of the matchups that got little-to-no development, like Ashido vs. Aoyama, or Yaoyorozu vs. Tokoyami. For the ones that are fleshed out, it fits. Bakugou vs. Uraraka was a definite battle of equally earnest wills (I don't think anyone willing to take so many explosions to the face can be accused of having a shallow will), but (view spoiler)[naturally, when it comes to raw skill, unfortunately Ochaco is just nowhere near in the same class as Bakugou, so in this case skill wins out. (hide spoiler)]Todoroki vs. Midoriya is...an interesting case. "Interesting" is probably a highly insufficient, almost insulting word to describe such an utterly epic fight, but then again the word "epic" has been used so much over recent years to the point of having lost all significance anyway. Is Izuku's fight with Todoroki a battle of two intense, sheer yearnings to be number one, like with Bakugou and Ochaco? Izuku surely began the Sports Festival with the utmost determination to become Number One, to let the world know that "I am here!" as All Might, the man whom he admires above all else, encouraged him to do so. Yet, by the time of the start of their match, I don't think "aiming for the top" was the motivation for either of them. Aiming for the top was never actually Todoroki's motivation from the very beginning. He didn't care about letting the world know "I am here!" as with Izuku, he didn't care about attracting potential pro heroes to truly jumpstart his hero career as with Ochaco or be able to follow in the footsteps of an admired brother like Iida, he wasn't in it to chase his dreams and grab that thing "you just can't help admiring" like Shinsou, and he certainly didn't care about crushing his opponents to prove absolute superiority as with Bakugou. No, Todoroki's motivation is basically revenge. It's to rub in the face of his hated father his rejection of his inherited quirk. It's really not much better or any more mature than Monoma's motivation (who just wants to be able to show class 1-A up.) Following Horikoshi's insistent theme of "those truly aiming for the top will be the ones to win", he no doubt wouldn't have made it as far as he did if he didn't have the raw skill to back it up (Horikoshi probably dislikes conflicts won by sheer dumb luck).Now onto Izuku. Despite all of his insistences that he's in the festival to do his best and to win, come the vs. Todoroki fight, I don't think his motivator was "aiming for the top" anymore. No, this is the main protagonist we're talking about now: a kind-hearted boy whose deepest desire has always been to become a great hero like All Might."What it means to be a hero." Being a hero is not done by winning school sports fests and garnering popularity. In Horikoshi's world, a world already brimming with heroes, to really be a hero, if All Might is the ultimate indication, is to help those in need with a smile and a simple line: "It's alright now. Why? Because, I am here." It means meddling even when you don't need to be, by those who don't want you to. And that's what Izuku does, because the deepest, main essence of his being is to be a hero, not to stand at the top. And by golly, does he want to help Todoroki.Todoroki's main characteristic up until now is best described as "aloof". While he's not shy about showing off his Quirk (well, his ice side, anyway), it's safe to say that he's nothing like the showboating, attention whoring person his father is. He doesn't do flashy things to garner attention like Bakugou (well, except to piss off his father, mainly by showing what he's *not* doing), and he very likely isn't the type to say things to garner sympathy. His sharing of his dark childhood and motivations to Izuku isn't to get Izuku to feel sorry for him and throw the fight; if anything, it's Todoroki's awkward way of apologizing to him. "This is how it is, and this is how I feel, and I'm ashamed that I couldn't even keep my own promise to myself (to never use his fire side, which he did during the cavalry battle), and I'm basically using you as a stand in for All Might to piss my dad off, but really, I have nothing against you otherwise." The fact that Izuku would feel UTTER HORROR at being told (view spoiler)[his classmate was abused as a child by his father and his mother poured boiling water ONTO HIS FACE (hide spoiler)] doesn't seem to be Todoroki's intent; in fact he barely seems to realize the effect he has on Izuku's emotions in speaking with him. If all this didn't flip Izuku's Wanting to be Todoroki's Hero Switch, then I don't know what would. Shortly after the Todoroki vs. Sero fight (volume 4), while everyone else is freaked out at the scale and extent of his ice powers (and pitying Sero), Izuku is focused on how sad Todoroki seemed to him. Just prior to their match, he comes across Endeavor, who mainly just succeeds in reiterating what Todoroki told him of Todoroki essentially only being born as a tool for his father, and it is at this mindset and emotional state that the Midoriya vs. Todoroki fight begins. So, what is Izuku's main goal right now? From the very beginning, he goes all out, prepared for all the pain using One For All is about to bring him. This is something he's been avoiding since the start of the Sports Festival, has only used once previously in an unconscious moment (view spoiler)[to break free of Shinsou's mind control (hide spoiler)], and using it without reserve will seriously hamper his chances, Recovery Girl or not, in later matches should he manage to beat Todoroki here. Yet that's what he does: use it without reserve. And goes even *further* beyond that (Plus Ultra! No, that's not how you should be using that phrase, Izuku!), using it to points beyond pain that no sane person or even the most extreme masochist is likely to go. And as he does so, he eggs Todoroki on. He taunts him and sneers at him, saying that unlike him, everyone else is going full out in order to win and attain their dreams, and "your right side looks awfully cold; wouldn't you be able to fix that by using those flames you're repressing?"Has Izuku suddenly caught the Bakugou bug and decided that he needs to draw out Todoroki's full seriousness in order to win an indisputable first place? Nah, he didn't seem to care much that even the more earnest of his classmates and rivals weren't fighting to win to the point of shedding tears of blood. He sure wasn't eager to let Shinsou get ahold of his mind again in his match with him (which would essentially be letting Shinsou fight at his most serious). Oh, but Todoroki is different, and Todoroki needs to properly unleash the full brunt of his Quirk onto him, because this sports festival is no longer about aiming for the top to Izuku; it's about being the hero for a classmate who can't move forward until he's able to embrace a very big element (literally) of himself. Throughout the entire fight, Izuku doesn't smile once...until he's managed to piss off (read: emotionally move) Todoroki enough for him to use his left (flame) side, full force. Naturally, at this point, this would be the farthest thing that is likely to make anyone hoping to win smile, except maybe someone as crazy as Bakugou.Going back to "those who are aiming for the top are the ones who get to win", at this point it's inevitable who will be the winner. Izuku has succeeded in his goal of the moment, which was not so much to be number one, but to be the hero that Todoroki needed; unfortunately, he simultaneously lit a fire (heh) under what had always been Todoroki's true motivation in life: (view spoiler)[to become a hero like All Might. (hide spoiler)]Thus, in the finals, we get (view spoiler)[Todoroki vs. Bakugou. In a battle of wills to be at the top of it all, Bakugou is certainly there. He wants that apex, to be able to look down upon all those he's crushed along the way, *especially* those he knows who have given their utmost, so that he can say that he is the strongest, he is the best, no matter how desperately his opponents fought. (He is utterly arrogant, after all). And although he'll likely never (ever, ever, ever) say it in exact words, he acknowledges Todoroki to be a worthy opponent, which is why Bakugou *needs* to have Todoroki use both sides of his Quirk, ice and fire, so that he can be the indisputable champion when he beats him.And Todoroki...well, let's just say that one battle, even one as emotionally charged as that, isn't nearly enough to erase a decade of abuse and trauma and psychological scars. He's feeling confused, and lost, and sorry, Bakugou, but you just weren't the one who managed to get him all riled up like that.And so, the one who was truly aiming for the top in this match up is the one who wins, as it should be. Good job, Kacchan! Not that he's willing to accept that. If anything, Todoroki essentially giving up is *the* ultimate insult to Bakugou (hide spoiler)]. I personally think this is one of the many ways that Horikoshi goes about punishing Bakugou for his younger actions."Don't you think you're thinking a leeeetle too deeply about a shounen superhero action tournament fighter arc?" No, not really. I think a lot of the writing is, while maybe not terribly original, quite clever and emotional, and that Horikoshi is good at rearranging old hat tropes into something fun and exciting, and sticking to his themes.Going back to "What it means to be a hero", undoubtedly a theme that will live at the forefront of the series all the way to the end, it'll continue to be examined in the next arc, as Hero Killer Stain is also introduced in this volume.

I have one thing to say that sums up basically all my feelings for this volume: YES, TODOROKI, YESSSSSSSS! My precious son is making friends I'm so happy :') the beginning of a great friendship with Todoroki and Midoriya is forming and I'm HERE.FOR.IT. I love those boys, my sweet babies :')USE THAT RIGHT HAND SIDE OF YOUR BODY TODOROKI. MAKE YOUR POWER YOUR OWN. PLUS ULTRA.Midoriya needs to be protected at all costs, how can someone be so pure? Even though he wants to be No.1 he's not afraid at all to push his friends to be their best self and to try hard even though it might mean jeopardising his own victory. So selfless, so wonderful, he's my favourite kind of main character to read about (and he reminds me a lot of Hinata from Haikyu!!), I love ya Midoriya! So now the sports event is over we have A LOT to deal with. Ida's brother, the Hero Killer dude, the League of Villains and on top of that, Hero School itself and all the stress that comes with that!Good luck to them!

I feel like the next anime episode, which will feature the fight between Todo and Bakugo will kick my emotional ass. Also, can I say I love father figure All Might? It's such a small detail but I love that he gave each of the winners a hug. What a guy!(Tiny spoiler ahead?)Dying to see what happens with Todo and his mum!!!

    This series just keeps getting better and better. This whole volume is non-stop battles as they continue to fight for the championship of the first year students. Everybody's quirks are so cool and there are some great match-ups. We learn a lot about Todoroki's character and his background this volume and I love how the winner was unpredictable. Also near the end, the next arc is set-up as we meet a villain who is on a hero serial killing spree. Should be exciting!
