My Hero Academia Volume 28 Cover

The battle wages on between the Paranormal Liberation Front and the Heroes. The battles have been divided into two, one taking place at Jakku Hospital and the other taking place at the Gunga Mountain Villa. The No. 5 Pro Hero Miriko has her hands full with fighting the High-Ends while Endeavor and the others try to stop Tomura from waking up, meanwhile, at the PLF Headquarters Dabi prepared to finish off the No. 2 Pro Hero, Hawks but Tokoyami flew in to help save his mentor, Midoriya and the other heroes were helping Civilians he sensed a familiar presence that has awoken at the Hospital.

It has been building up to this moment, Kohei Horikoshi and his team have done it again, giving a larger-than-life battle and intense moments and situations. Volume 27 was one of the most emotional of the series but this volume had to have been the most thrilling since the Shie Hassaikai Arc beginning in Volume 14.

This Volume collects Chapters 268-276, each page was packed with action and suspense, an arc that has dire consequences for the UA Heroes and the world, while one of the main focuses was Tomura Shigaraki and All for One’s ascendance over the villain’s successor and Eraserhead, focusing on his actions and thoughts while fighting the High-Ends and Woman.


Speaking of Dire Consequences, if you recall in the last volume that Miriko was fighting not only High-Ends but she attempted to stop Tomura by breaking his Life Tank, the cost? Her left arm and severe injuries, but luckily Miriko have a high pain tolerance and Endeavor to cauterize the wounds quickly. Another thing about this arc so far has been the quirks, Horikoshi has brought us a fascinating world of both Heroes and Villains and the Quirks for each character grabs the attention of the reader (especially for me in this case,) Kyudai Garaki, the Doctor who was willing to risk it all and his life for Shigaraki as he would for One For All, revealing to be a quirk called Life Force, where it allows the user to double their life span, causing them to age at a slower rate, making them look much younger than they are.

The Artwork in this volume is stellar, whether it be through the intense fight sequences between the Nomu and the heroes, or that incredibly drawn moment in Tomura’s mind where his humanity came back briefly before turning his back on it to embrace his role of becoming All For One’s Successor. From the Well-Drawn Choreographed fighting, the subtle nods to both Japanese and American Superheroes, and of course, the drama this Volume had me on the edge of my seat and that’s also speaking from following the story on Viz Media’s Shonen Jump App. Without giving too much away I would like to say that this was a near-perfect continuation in the story arc going on currently, and it is a MUST HAVE for fans and followers of this series.

A Big Thank You to Viz Media for allowing me to review this copy in advance!
