Today’s Tub Manga: My Hero Academia (volume 9)

I sometimes wonder if I will ever get enough My Hero Academia.

That said, it’s starting to get a little tricky reading it in Jump and watching the simulcast and then reading the manga volumes as they’re released. My brain is getting all scrambly.

But that’s okay because this is a great volume. The kids are at training camp, which is a lot more entertaining than I remembered when it originally ran in Jump. Horikoshi-sensei mentions in the opening author’s comment that this volume is “still pretty gloomy” and we get a reminder that while his heroes are creative and awesome, his villains are just as eerily skin-crawly to match.

Training camp chaperoned by the Wild Wild Pussycats (hilarious) gets interrupted by some villains (not hilarious). We get some great inspirational Deku-leveling-up-as-a-hero this volume. And you can’t beat an attack name like “Delaware Detroit Smash.” And one thing I had totally forgotten was Tokoyami’s rampaging Quirk and I kinda loved it.

My Hero Academia is always so well-written and brilliant. So much so that I’m blown away every time I read it, even if I’ve read it already… O.o

“Memory” is obviously not my Quirk.
