My Hero Academia Hits Shigaraki With Surprising New Challenge

Shigaraki is the heir apparent to All For One in My Hero Academia and he has proven it in this Final Arc. Wielding powers that might make him the strongest villain on Earth, the young antagonist is far from claiming victory from the heroes however. In previous chapters, Shigaraki managed to nearly snuff out Bakugo's life in their one-on-one battle, but luckily for the explosive hero, a last minute save has arrived just in time. 

Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of My Hero Academia's manga, Chapter 361, be forewarned that we'll be diving into some serious spoiler territory.

The Final Arc of the series from mangaka Kohei Horikoshi has finally united the Big Three for the first time in the manga itself, with Nejire, Lemillion, and Suneater working in tandem to try to bring down Shigaraki. While Mirio and Nejire lay the groundwork for an assault, the true ace in the hole comes from Suneater, the UA Academy student whose Quirk allows him to take on the powers of whatever he had eaten prior to unleashing them. As readers witness in one dynamic scene, Suneater unleashes an attack that appears to combine all of his previous moves, meaning that he guzzled down quite a few edibles before he dove into battle. 

Nejire not only explains the attack but also recollects her relationship with her partners within the Big Three:

"I got to learn so much about you two here and now I'm all the stronger for it. We know the true worth of his vast hybrid. Sure it takes time to cook up properly, but Togata and I know all about you, Tamaki Amajiki. Eating more things makes your potential grow and grow. If anything can land a meaningful hit on Shigaraki, it's gotta be a Quirk with no upper cap! That means you! It has to be you! Suneater!"


While the hit itself hasn't made contact with the heir to All For One, the massive appearance of what looks like a chimera bursting from Suneater's arm is certainly a pivotal moment in the final fight of the series. 

Will Suneater be able to take down Shigaraki before Deku even joins the direct fight against his bitter foe? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of UA Academy.
