The following contains key revelations for My Hero Academia Chapter 386, “I’m Here,” by Kohei Horikoshi, Caleb Cook, and John Hunt, available in English from Viz Media.
There are three words in My Hero Academia that can be a huge source of morale for allies and make enemies shiver in fear, and these words can only be “I am here!”
In My Hero Academia’s Chapter 386, “I Am Here”, a hero unexpectedly returns victorious. The heroes find themselves scattered as Dabi plans a suicide explosion to wipe out a good part of the city, and All for One begins to fight in battle. Things looked bleak, but one person stepped up to face All for One with nothing but a briefcase: the only All Might.
Fan reaction when All Might joins the fight
Despite his incompetence, All Might still has the same grin as he did in his prime as the number one hero. The similarities between All Might and Deku have never been as clear as in this chapter, with the similarities between the powerless All Might and the incompetent Deku and the console with the high school versions of All Might and Deku. . The final two pages of All Might’s confrontation with AFO left fans in tears, with one fan saying it would be “poetic justice”. [if] The one who took down AFO was none other than the carefree Toshinari Yagi.”
Other fans praised Horikoshi’s artwork and plans. One fan noted: “Being able to see All Might’s scar as he prepares to fight All For One means a lot.” Another loved the close-up shot of All Might’s face before the panel turned to the final double page showing the chapter’s title, saying, “this moment is so nostalgic and wonderful!”
Since serialization in Weekly Shōnen Jump in July 2014, My Hero Academia has become one of the most popular manga series to date. In a world where individuals who possess Quirks have the potential to become heroes, a boy with no Quirk dreams of saving people and becoming a superhero, much like his idol All Might. Izuku Midoriya’s dream came true when All Might, who sensed his time as the Symbol of Peace was coming to an end, passed on his Quirk named One for All to him. In inheriting OFA, Midoriya also inherited the decades-long mission of fighting All Might’s arch-nemesis, All for One. While My Hero Academia has entered its final phase, Horikoshi has no qualms about believing that the manga will end.
Fans will have to wait a little longer to see what happens next between AFO and All Might. Chapter 387 of My Hero Academia will return on May 7, 2023.
