While it's great to have fun action pieces and scary villains, I want more feel-good scenarios and growth! Seriously, if anyone can recommend an enjoyable manga to me that has some enjoyable characters and doesn't rely too heavily on action/fanservice, let me know because I need something like this to read on a regular basis and I will adore you so much!
|Well, someone wants to be the next Jojo.|
The next day is one of excitement as the main trio are energetic to the point of insanity, and Midoriya is still freaked out because of last night's snooping from Aoyama. During the class, taught by Midnight, Midoriya wonders about him. He has the behaviour of a hero, but the attitude of someone who likes to remain distant. Next is the class by Cementoss, who still looks absolutely terrifying to me.
|If I were these teachers, I'd make these students take some drug tests.|
Finally, Midoriya can use this chance to talk to Aoyama about the cheese message. Aoyama reveals that he, like Midoriya, does not have a body considered suitable for the Quirk he possesses and he sent the message to encourage Midoriya. And so the chapter ends with Aoyama pooping himself, and the two now closer than before.
|I am far too close to shipping these two.|

The class assembles under Iida to discuss ideas for what the class will do for the festival. A maid cafe, food vendors, shows and dancing! Iida, Momo and a few others are discussing what to do later on, now with their list of options, and Todoroki surprisingly agrees they should do dancing. Ashido has the surprising gift to be able to teach them how to dance, but the only thing missing is music... Thank God for Jiro! Jiro is embarrassed and shy but the others, mostly Kaminari and the barely-existing Koda, manage to convince her to be up for playing.

High schools are so overused in manga, and that is sometimes just an inevitability. Having a school festival is almost always one of the most major events in a silly comedy or drama, but this series has immediately made them intriguing again just by giving every student a superpower. Now, when they start discussing having a dance scene, the possibilities become endless thanks to shadows, tails, acid and more being a factor.
Seeing Aoyama actually get a brief window where he was allowed to discuss his own hardships was just plain great. I adore seeing small characters like this get emotional scenes that aren't too melodramatic, and this chapter found exactly the right balance to keep from being a weepy montage of misery to tug at our heartstrings. I've seen anime in the past take a fun character and go far too serious with them, and I'm relieved to see Aoyama avoid that path.
|I can't even decide which of these is my favourite. So many great options!|
The characters were fun, Jiro might be getting some scenes next time during this festival, the dance number could be a great visual, and more Ashido is always a positive. Honestly, I'm having trouble complaining this time... Just give us more Pink Waifu!
Chapter 168: 4/5
Chapter 169: 4.5/5
Best Part: Hilarious character interactions.
Worst Part: Aizawa's unnecessary justification.
|Maybe we'll get another return from Shoujo Shoto?|
