However, there is no point whining about how I should have waited until a new arc starts. My debut was Toga and Twice. That's good enough for me. And luckily, these two consumed this chapter with their fun banter and disturbing attachment towards each other. However, does that make this chapter good?

|I didn't expect to type this out today but... here is an adorable Twice. Do what you like with it.|
Like last week, we go to a flashback with Shigaraki, who is telling the League about the deal he made with Overhaul to have Toga and Twice work for them. Twice speaks out against this due to the death of Kenji and "Mr Compress" losing his arm, turning to Toga for back-up. Toga questions Shigaraki, saying she only joined to make things easier for herself and wants to know why she needs to do something as unpleasant as work with these people. Oh and she has a knife out because fun.

Yes, the first thing to really notice in this arc is the difference between Shigaraki and Overhaul, as both of them seem to have different views and methods to use their underlings. Whether he's being sincere or not, Shigaraki uses inspirational words and phrases to manipulate Twice, and to a lesser extent Toga, to do as he wishes while Overhaul is the type to knowingly use his minions as nothing more than tools. It's an interesting observation to make that helps highlight why they can't ever get along.
Twice was the real winner this week, as the chapter displays more of his personality and psychotic tendencies. What really took my attention was the response to having his mask broken, showing his mind clearly struggling to decide which personality to stick with. It looks like Twice sees his mask a separate personality, and when the mask is broken then he feels torn between two worlds and about to be consumed. It certainly gives a new meaning to his name "Twice".

That brings me to an odd nitpick of this arc; The setting. It has to be said that when you have a variety of superheroes all battling it out for supremacy, the last place you should put them all is inside a dark, boring room underground. There is no variety or atmosphere, and everything just feels dank and subdued. Setting is important, and this setting is nowhere near right for an exciting series of battles.
Manga Rating: 2.5/5
Character of the Week: Twice for crossing the line between hilarious and fucked-up.
Best Part: Twice's broken mask.
Worst Part: Twice running away from Nighteye.
|Oh yeah, Midoriya was also in this chapter, for some reason.|
