    New Chapter/New Thread!

    Chapter revealed what's going on with Midoriya and just what these new powers are.

    spoilers:
    Seems One for All is not just the core power that we saw All Might use, but it also stored the powers of the users who weren't quirkless, and it's also amplifying them! Black whip is the first to emerge and there will be 5 others. It's now clear Midoriya's power cap is insane, but control might be even harder to maintain.

    That probably could have been a chapter by itself but Monoma's a stupid dick and continues the battle, and the teachers do their standard lets see if Midoriya gets himself seriously injured before jumping in.
    end of spoilers

    So big bombshell and surprisingly this fight isn't going to be put off.

    I loved this chapter. The situation with Izuku's quirk has really spruced up this arc.

    spoilers:
    Mr. Funky is one cool inner spirit dude. I really like the subversion that while Izuku's powers are top tier and difficult to control, the spirit(s) inside of him aren't monsters that try to take control over him and run rampant for shits and giggles.

    So besides eventually gaining the ability to use Full Cowl: 100% at will, Izuku will also get six other abilites. That is ridiculous and only tempered by his lack of experience. It'll be a difficult balancing act for Horikoshi in making Izuku develop consistently without making him OP as frick. Also, Shiragaki really needs some upgrades of his own if this keeps going.

    Heh, the best person to teach Izuku to use multiple quirks at once is All For One. That's dangerous and really enticing.
    end of spoilers

    I'm also very happy with Izuku's interaction with Ochako in this chapter. They've got each others' back and they're so sweet together.

    Monoma continues to be a beautiful dickwad.

    This chapter was incredibly exciting and probably the biggest development in the series we've gotten in a long while. This is gonna lead up to a really interesting conclusion to the arc.

    spoilers:
    So now this basically confirms that All Might and Midoryia were the only quirkless One For All inheritors, and I think that's gonna be majorly important!

    I know some people are worried now that Midoryia has access to 6 powers he'll become too incredibly OP, but I think the story has been able to easily not make any of the other character's with supposedly "OP" quirks too overpowered, so I think it will be balanced out. Plus I think its more interesting to see how Midoryia will be able to use these powers to tap into the true purpose of One For All, rather than just simply making him able to beat his classmates more easily.

    I also like that Aizawa doesn't immediately cancel the match and lets it resume for now, since he's somewhat aware that what just happened wasn't Midoryia's fault, and I think his experience fighting alongside him in the Overhaul raid might have helped with his trust. Or maybe he just wants Shinzo to have a chance to fight, either fits for him, heh.

    I am now legitimately curious how everyone else is going to react whenever he eventually starts using multiple quirks, because then its gonna be really hard for him to hide that something's up.

    I bet Deku will end up losing some of these new powers from the quirkless bullets.

    I don't think that will be the outcome, The only way Deku needs such a ridiculous upgrade is because he would be fighting All for one or someone with all of his powers.

    It all really depends on what kind of abilities the remaining five quirks are. I can see some of them being varying degrees of situational, and some might just be stuff that isn't suited for direct combat like enhanced sight or something.

    There's absolutely a risk of this making Izuku OP in the end. But I trust Horikoshi enough as a writer to find a good balance going forward with this plot.

    I'm thinking that Aizawa does consider that something's up and wants to get a better understanding by observing the rest of the match. Other people will probably be like Monoma who just thought that this was another aspect of Izuku's quirk, which it is but not in the way he thinks.

    I also kinda like this explanation.

    Aizawa: My son will kick your son's ass.

    All Might: ...neither of us have children Aizawa.

    Aizawa: Shit, did I say that out loud?

    Another crazy fun chapter that's continuing the big battle.

    spoilers:
    Midoryia tries to come up with a plan alongside Uraraka to not use his quirk against Shinzo just in case anything goes wrong.
    Mina and Mineta do a pretty good job tag-teaming against the 3 Class B members, with Mineta especially showing his usefulness (while also sneaking in some more excuses to be his pervy self)
    Monoma tries to use One For All against Midoryia, but Uraraka takes him down, with it turning out to be a dud.
    Midoryia faces Shinzo and realizes he's much stronger with his binding cloth than he thought, so he looks into his heart and embraces the black whips to save himself.
    end of spoilers

    Once again really liking seeing, how Vlad puts it, the softer side of Aizawa, at the beginning and then in the flashback. Alot of bigger and smaller revelations that I'm really interested in seeing how they will impact or be reacted upon in the future.

    I've seen some interesting theories about why Monoma couldn't copy One For All. My favourites are that it didn't work for him since he can't copy multiple quirks and One For All is literally a bunch of quirks smushed together, and that he only got the transferal quirk that All For One's brother started out with. And I've gotta say it again, I love what this arc has done for Monoma's character and how we've gotten a closer look at the guy. He was always one of the most hilarious parts of the series to me and getting to see how he interacts with his classmates and Shinso and finding out how he feels about his difficult to use quirks makes me appreciate him a lot more.

    I'm also glad that Uraraka takes him down with no problem.

    Shinso and Izuku are good rivals and I'm glad that Aizawa lets that play out and rationally figured out that whatever's going on can be stopped pretty easily by him and Shinso.

    This arc had a great start, a mixed middle and is heading towards a great conclusion. I am excited to see how it all will impact the kids after the class is said and done.

    He's definitely one of the top competitors for best Dad in a series filled to the brim with best Dads.
