Although the previous chapter of My Hero Academia, i.e., chapter 397, was relatively short, it had a lot of information in store for us, and of course, the insane action sequences of the rematch between AFO and All Might.
With the release of chapter 398 of My Hero Academia manga, the release date for the next chapter, i.e., My Hero Academia chapter 399, has been marked and is just a week away! The latest chapter of the series became more sorrowful with each present panel.
Chapter 398 was something that every fan of the series should witness, even if they are not caught up in the manga. The fight between AFO and All Might is on the verge of climax, with the winner almost in sight, and unfortunately, it won’t be All Might.
Presenting a lot of twists, this chapter was one of a kind. The chapter begins with a flashback of Toshinori meeting Nana Shimura. Then it cuts back to the battle where a projectile is launched from All Might’s car, penetrating directly into AFO’s chest and injecting the contents inside. In question, the projectile was full of acid, which would damage AFO with each passing second. But the chapter takes a consequential turn quickly.
My Hero Academia Chapter 399 Release Date:
After the fans finally received the flashback of the greatest hero in My Hero Academia, they were very eager to know about the next chapter’s release date. The release date of My Hero Academia chapter 399 is scheduled for September 4, 2023.
With the decline of pages in each chapter from the average of 18 pages in a Weekly Shonen Jump manga, it is indeed noticeable that the health of Horikoshi-sensei is declining. Horikoshi-sensei might take an extended break soon, as his health is his first priority, and the fans should acknowledge this fact!
The next chapter of My Hero Academia might be the climax of the most anticipated rematch, as both All Might and AFO are standing face-to-face with nowhere to run.
My Hero Academia Chapter 399 Expectations:
Chapter 398 of My Hero Academia was an emotional rollercoaster. The chapter had many turning points, but ultimately, the battle’s outcome is undoubtedly inevitable. But Horikoshi-sensei might have something in the backup to save our favorite hero, All Might.
All Might again taunts All for One by quoting, “Who’s the trash now?” after the acid projectile penetrates AFO. Following the events, the chapter then cuts back to Nana and Toshinori’s first meeting, where Toshinori persuades Nana to make him a disciple. Still, she denies it every time, as Toshinori is quirkless.
Toshinori then explains that he wants to help everyone since his family was killed, and Nana replies her family was killed too.
But she doesn’t have enough time to help Toshinori seek revenge for his parents. Toshinori explains his inner feeling that he cannot stand the spiral of villains destroying and terrorizing people and wants to become a symbol of peace; with that, Nana is surprised by Toshinori’s determination.
But this makes Nana more curious, and she asks Toshinori that is why he wants to pursue power. “I’m quirkless. Born without a role.” All Might replies to Nana’s question, and the flashback ends.
The chapter then cuts back to the battlefield. AFO uses another attack by mixing multiple quirks, but this time, the blast is absurdly massive, which causes All Might to crash onto UA’s rooftop. Due to the massive explosion, All Might now have fractured ribs, torn organs, and a damaged respiratory system.
AFO is now directly heading towards All Might, who is lying on top of UA’s building, but he takes a little detour. This is where All Might and Deku first met, and All Might receives a major flashback to the moment when he met Deku, who also wanted to become a hero without any quirk.
AFO appears over All Might, but he seems a little different. All Might notices if AFO takes significant damage, he gets a little younger in looks. The more damage he takes, the more he is forced to rewind. To take the acid out of his body, he used quirks that added a little damage to the acid, but the attack took it out. Noticing this detail, All Might laughs hysterically, and all his laughs are synchronized with flashbacks.
Three new items from All Might’s car will help him in the fight. All Might is satisfied to help everyone. The three items are Uravity Thruster, Ingenium, and Maximum Output. All Might is sure that they can win against the League of Villains, and this determination reaches Deku, who is shown after a long time and is currently fighting Shigaraki with all of his power.
The chapter ends with All Might’s determination to reach Deku and vice versa. The next chapter will be the magnum opus of My Hero Academia, and finally, the long rematch between AFO and All Might will tragically conclude. But there’s a possibility that the manga will begin focusing on the fight between Deku and Shigaraki after a long wait!
With the possible tragic conclusion in sight, the manga’s pace will turn. The death of the greatest hero will serve as a significant development element for Deku, but as it is not confirmed yet, these are just speculations that everybody should take with a grain of salt.
The next chapter of My Hero Academia is on the pace to release on September 4, 2023. A lot of speculation arises from this chapter, but the fans need to be patient for just a week to get the answer to the hottest question! That’s all for today; we’ll see you soon!
