My Hero Academia Chapter 403 Spoilers

My Hero Academia chapter 403 spoilers or raw scans have been released:

  • Chapter 403: The End of An Era, And…
  • The chapter begins with kid All Might reading the Anpanman manga with his mom, saying that his childhood was very normal. It’s not even something that can be called a proper “origin”. But he always looked back and saw that the path he chose was very important.
  • Cuts back to the present and AFO is laughing, saying that AM won’t get to choose how he dies. He destroyed the gauntlet using the spikes before it exploded and used Stain’s quirk to paralyze AM. AFO knows that wounded heroes are dangerous, so he didn’t let his guard down.
  • Now that U.A. is floating, Gentle wants to go and help All Might, but AFO shoots a laser at it, forcing Gentle to stay there holding the school. The pilots also try to help with their jets, saying they won’t let Star’s idol die, but All For One quickly destroys them all.
  • Agpar feels hopeless. Deku and Tsukauchi also start to freak out when AFO holds All Might in his arms. The next page shows several people around the world watching the battle: some are rooting for All Might, but several have already given up.
  • Melissa and Gran Torino (who’s watching from the hospital) are crying. All Might has a desperate look on his face. Deku doesn’t know what to do. Tsukauchi begins to pray. Someone, please help All Might. Someone…
  • BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! Deku looks at U.A and sees Bakugou. He’s covered in blood, but standing and holding All Might’s card. Deku starts to cry and the two of them look at each other.

My Hero Academia Chapter 402 Recap

At the Counter-Force Headquarters, the team reports Shoto’s success in extinguishing Dabi’s heat, saving civilians, and defeating Himiko. They also say that the Twice Doubles disrupting the floating U.A. are beginning to disappear. During this time, Creati had been protecting Mei from the Doubles while Mei was doing repairs. Mei states that with the Doubles gone, the U.A. is much lighter, allowing it to keep floating. The Counter-Force reports that All For One has reached Tomura’s location, where he and Deku are fighting. Naomasa thinks about how their battle has been stalemate since Deku jumped down from the U.A., but he remains anxious.

All For One reveals that he has been working towards reaching a specific location since he injected himself with the Rewind Drug. He aims to give his copy of All For One to Tomura, making him a more robust version of himself. All Might try to divert his attention towards himself, but All For One ignores him and uses his Warping Quirk to transport Tomura away so that he doesn’t have to deal with Deku’s interference. However, Tomura surprises everyone by rejecting All For One’s offer and swallowing the gloop. He tells his Master not to interfere, and All For One realizes that Tomura’s consciousness has taken over. All For One then looks down at All Might and smiles, acknowledging that he must do the work himself.

As the Business Course students looked on, they saw All For One carrying the battered All Might by the leg and heading towards the school. They demanded that All Might take responsibility for filling their heads with dreams that were now shattered. Meanwhile, Tomura tried to distract Deku by asking him to save All Might. Tomura hoped that once Deku returned to the U.A., he would break everyone who had beaten him earlier.

Deku looks up at the dangling All Might and feels the tears coming on. He thought he was past this, but he can’t help himself. He has to be the best apprentice he can be. As One For All fades, he screams out to All Might. Meanwhile, All Might consider how Deku has what it takes to be a hero, even without a Quirk. He admires Deku’s dedication and determination to never give up on his dreams, just like he can’t abandon his plan of being a Symbol of Peace.

All Might tightly grab All For One, triggering a sudden flashback of Nana Shimura’s final moments for All For One. He remembers her last words when she prophesied that All Might would defeat him because he is even more unhinged than himself. As All Might confidently taunts him with a question about whether he will turn into a kindergartener again after his death, All For One realizes the gravity of what he is about to do. All Might is ready to blow both of them up, and All For One understands the full extent of the decision he must make.
