My Hero Academia's creator has given Himiko Toga the school life she was never able to have in a fun new sketch for the franchise! The manga is now in the midst of the final battle between the heroes and villains, and that means the rest of the series is likely only to get far more intense as it speeds towards its grand finale. There's not really going to be much time for the smaller character moments fans got to enjoy in the first few eras of the series, so that means that some things fans have wanted to see likely won't get to happen either.
This is especially tragic for Toga as the peeks into her past have revealed that she's just a troubled girl who wanted to live a normal school life, but her quirk gave her violent urges that didn't quite fit in with regular society. It's why she seemed so drawn to Izuku Midoriya and Ochaco Uraraka, as they were living a life that she was envious of, but unfortunately there will likely be a bloody end to her current path in the series. But original My Hero Academia series creator Kohei Horikoshi has imagined an alternate world where she got along with Uraraka, Tsuyu Asui, and even pro hero Mirko in a school all their own. Check out the creator's special sketch below:
僕のヒーローアカデミア35巻本日発売です、表紙が白です！あと来週またお休みいただいております、すみません！何卒よろしくお願い致します！ pic.twitter.com/aGURIq8363— 堀越耕平 (@horikoshiko) July 4, 2022
Celebrating both the release of My Hero Academia Volume 35 hitting shelves in Japan, and apologizing to fans for the fact that the manga release is going on a break this coming week, Horikoshi shared the sketch that imagines an entirely different take on the series that sees Toga getting along with the others in much the way she seemed to desire throughout the series thus far. With the series now gearing her up for her final battle against the young heroes, there's going to be a much different kind of moment between Toga and the others as it all comes to an end.
As for the anime, the series is hard at work with Season 6. My Hero Academia is officially set to return this October as part of the Fall 2022 anime schedule, and will be kicking off the Paranormal Liberation Front War. This had been the most intense arc of the series to date before the current final battle, so fans are in for quite a ride with Toga and the others going forward. How do you feel about Horikoshi's take on Toga's school life? Would you want to see this kind of happy ending for the villain? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
