'My Hero Academia' Just Gave Bakugo His Hardest Mission Yet

The last chapter of the My Hero Academia manga took one of the first few steps into the next arc for the series with an incredibly tough supplementary hero exam challenge.

Chapter 165 continues the test as Bakugo and Todoroki need to win the hearts of a crowd of rambunctious children, and the test has cranked up in a hilarious way.

In the last chapter, a crowd naughty children from a nearby elementary school burst into the exam area, and Gang Orca said that in order to pass this supplementary lesson, Camie, Todoroki, Inasa, and Camie needed to work together to sway their hearts. This proves especially tough for Bakugo as the kids berate him and even take his grenade gauntlets.

But Bakugo assumes that the kids have gone astray from the teacher's wishes because there is one leader kid, and that leader kid is the one who makes the decisions of the others. So his solution to the problem is to find the kid leader, and make a violent example out of them in order to get the other kids to fall in line. But after challenging the strongest kid, he soon realizes that his straightforward way of thinking won't work in this situation.

The kids are much smarter than they let on, and after the appeals from Camie, Todoroki, and Inasa are all twisted by the kids' logic, Bakugo and the others resort to one final solution: an all-out brawl with the children.

Because the children see themselves as a stronger generation, as the current generation of heroes is unclear, Bakugo and the others vow to take them off with the full power of their quirks.

If you are eagerly waiting for season 3 of the series, it recently revealed a new trailer teasing the season as well as an image teasing the season during its official announcement. Then, of course, is the currently running manga series that has just wrapped the arc beyond this, the "Internship" arc. If that's not enough, why not lookup Horikoshi's original one-shot Barrage?


Along with season 3 of the anime series, a film adaptation will also open in 2018. The film will cover a story not seen in the original manga with series creator Horikoshi noting that, "Of course the movie will be filled with Class A's great efforts, that character's past that hasn't been in the manga yet, flashy action scenes, and much more." The film also revealed its first key visualdepicting a character fans have never seen before.

For those unfamiliar with My Hero Academia, the series was created by Kohei Horikoshi and has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014.

Dreaming to become a superhero anyway, he's eventually scouted by the world's best hero All Might and enrolls in a school for professional heroes.
