I read My Hero Academia: Vol. 24 in individual chapters as they were posted to Viz Manga’s site.
Wow. I’ve been hearing SO much about this plot that I ended up caving and diving into it myself. Partially because I was tired of all the spoilers, but partially because I was eager to see what was going to happen next.
And I’m so glad that I checked it out. This volume of MHA takes some time to step back and show us the League of Villains. Yes, you did, in fact, read that right. That means that all of the characters we love to hate (or are simply just fascinated by) are the sole focus in this issue.
My Hero Academia Vol. 24: All It Takes Is One Bad Day was nothing like what I expected. It was so much better. I honestly am still reeling from some of the events and revelations that happened here. Actually, confession time: once I finished this plot, I ended up reading the rest of the chapters available of Viz Manga. So now I’m not really sure what volume I’m on. I’ll have to remedy that. But later!
Normally, I don’t go gaga over plot arcs focused entirely on the villains of a series (well, that’s not entirely true, but moving on). But in this case? These characters are well worth the deep dive. I have so much I want to say, but I won’t, because I refuse to spoil any moment of what I just read.
I will say that this volume had several jaw-dropping moments for me. As well as a few backstories that I’ve been desperately hoping to see. The League of Villains have always been interesting, but now they feel fully fleshed out. And that’s probably going to make them more dangerous in the long run. I just can’t wait to see where this plot arc leads us.
