My Hero Academia Chapter 398 Spoilers

My Hero Academia Chapter 398 spoilers have been released:

Chapter 398: “Toshinori Yagi Rising Origin”

The chapter begins with a panel of young Toshinori asking to become Nana’s disciple. In the present, a new item comes out of All Might’s car and pierces AFO, inserting a strong acid into his body. Pinky!

“You said I was organic garbage, but look who’s rotting now”, All Might makes fun of the damage AFO took from the acid. Cuts to the past and Toshinori’s asking Nana to accept him. She says she can’t because he’s quirkless, he’d only be able to protect 3 meters area.

He says that his family was killed and so was hers, but she doesn’t have time to help in his revenge. But that’s not Toshinori’s goal, he just can’t stand this spiral of crime, hatred and sadness. She looks astonished and he says that he wants to become a symbol of peace.

It doesn’t matter if you build new houses after the destruction, the people who live in them will live in fear. Nana asks why he decided to do this even though he has no power and he says that normal people are busy protecting their own “3 meters area”, so he has to do it.

“I have no quirk, that means I don’t have a role of my own”. What comes next is one of the most emotional pages in the entire series: All Might and All for One crash into Tatooin station, in a double spread that looks exactly like the one from the first chapter.

They keep flying and the cops say they’re close to U.A, but AFO has taken a detour to chase All Might. AM is lying on the top of the building where Deku asked him if he could become a hero. He has broken ribs, damage all over and his respiratory organs are malfunctioning.

After remembering Deku running to save Bakugou in the first chapter and Stain talking about All Might’s role, Toshinori gets up. AFO arrives at the building and AM notices that he has gotten a little younger.

AFO had to use several quirks to remove the acid from his body, causing damage to himself. Knowing this, Toshinori assumes that the more damage AFO takes, the younger he gets. All Might then starts laughing like crazy, in a page full of flashbacks and “HA HA HA”

He tells Hercules to send all the remaining items at once and keeps laughing: “I’m so happy I can play a role and help everyone.” As he says this, one of All Might’s eyes becomes “normal”, without the shadows. “I’ll do my best, we’ll do our best… and win!”

The new items include two gauntlets, Doc Ock’s metal tentacles and a robotic crow. He prepares to attack with everything he has and activates “Ingenium” and “Uravity” to boost his mobility. We see some waves and the All Might vestige feels the presence of the real one.

The second to last page shows Deku and Shigaraki, with Deku thinking “All Might!” and the last page shows All Might and All For One, with All Might thinking “Young Midoriya!”. End of chapter, no break next week

My Hero Academia Chapter 397 Recap

With a genuine passion burning deep within him, All Might relentlessly unleashes a barrage of powerful blows upon his adversary, All For One. The intense desire to protect and uphold the honor of One For All fuels his every move. Despite the odds stacked against him, he stands firm and resolute. Taunting his opponent with a fierce determination, he proves that even a Quirkless man can defeat a true Demon Lord.

All For One combines multiple Quirks, launching a barrage of attacks at All Might. All Might survives using his “Utility Cape Auto-Guard: Dark Shadow,” realizing All For One’s taunts are working. The suit informs him that the cape was destroyed, and he has injuries in his clavicle and left humerus. He orders it to assist him at maximum. All For One appears above All Might and insults him, blaming his gadgets for his defeat.

All Might recalls advising Izuku not to rely too much on support items, having seen heroes lose their power without them. He jokes that he and All For One think alike, reminiscing on his first meeting with Nana Shimura and how he fought with just a lead pipe.
