My Hero Academy stunned fans with its dramatic final chapter, so it’s no surprise that fans are clamoring to see what happens next. Here’s everything fans need to know about chapter 388 of My Hero Academia – what’s going on, when will it be available to read, and what to expect in the next chapter.
When My Hero Academia Ch. 388 drop?
New chapters of My Hero Academia traditionally release at 11am EST/8am PST on Sundays, with the series mostly sticking to the weekly release schedule. The latest chapters of the series can be read for free on Viz’s website/app or Shonen Jump’s Manga+ app. In recent months, manga creator Kohei Horikoshi has had to take an unscheduled leave of absence due to his health, which has slowed the pace of new movie releases. However, that particular issue won’t matter for chapter 388, which is currently scheduled for release on Sunday, May 14, 2023.
What happened in My Hero Academia Ch. 387?
Chapter 387 of My Hero Academia shocked fans when Dabi’s mother, Rei Todoroki, appeared on the battlefield. Rei is not a hero, but a former housewife who was put in a mental hospital after she escaped abuse and injured a young Shoto Todoroki. Rei feels she bears some responsibility when Dabi turns out to be the villain she is, and she seems to be here to try to do something about it – although it’s currently unclear exactly. what is she going to do. Shoto himself is also on his way to the scene with Ida’s help.
The chapter also reveals that Dabi actually has two Quirks – an Ice Quirk, inherited from his mother, who worked overtime to keep his body from burning up in the raging flames he can create. This added another tragic irony, as it turned out that Dabi actually had the combination of powers his father had been looking for all along.
My Hero Academia Ch. 388 Witness the tragic family reunion of the Todoroki family
Previous chapters have made it clear that Dabi intends to push himself until he explodes, which can destroy a large area including civilians and dozens of heroes, aiming to take down the main his father, the hero Endeavor. With the Endeavor exhausted, Shoto is desperately making his way there, hoping to prevent his estranged brother from killing any more. The arrival of Rei (and apparently the other siblings, Fuyumi and Natsuo) adds a big complicating factor. After all, Dabi’s rampage is primarily aimed at his father, but he’s gone so far, he might not care if he kills the rest of the family along with them. Dabi’s body has also been shrunk to little more than ashes, so it may not be possible to save him at this stage, if that’s what Rei is hoping for. The Todoroki family has been entangled in tragedy for many years, and this confrontation has the potential to become the ultimate pain the series has directed for hundreds of chapters now.
My Hero Academy Chapter 388 is considered the main chapter of the series, so fans will want to see the new chapter as soon as it is released on May 14 to avoid spoilers.
