This was my reaction by the end of this volume. Right from the start we are presented with the conclusion of Deku's and Gentle Criminal's battle. Deku pulls out some amazing moves to finish the fight! We learn a bit more about his and La Brava's backstory and relationship.l Following this, we move on to the School Festival. I really didn't like it because I just don't care about it but it does give us funny interactions between the Class 1-A heros and we also get to see more of Eri.
Issues 184 to 188 are all about the new Japanese Hero Billboard Chart which -as the synopsis of this volume states- shows us Endeavour obtaining position number 1. However, much more interesting (in my opinion at least) is the introduction of the Number 2 Hero known as Hawks. He is only 22 years old and already Number 2 but claims that he wants and I quote "I wanna make this world one where heroes have time to kill" and that he would much rather be ranked lower if possible so the spotlight isn't on him. Interesting attitude by someone who worked pretty hard to stand out like this, I like him already.
Finally, we are shown a scene between Todoroki's mother and her son (Todoroki's brother) and daughter. They discuss something that hasn't been touched on since the time that Deku and Todoroki fought and I am really excited to see where this goes. During this time, Endeavour and Hawks are ambushed by a foe that we all thought to have been gone for good and then.... I finished the volume with the two words I started the review.
My Hero Academia fans, pick this volume up! It is really good!
