My Hero Academia Chapter 312 Review

Recommended Posts

So this new villan's name is Lady Nagant!

I'll be honest, after hawks description of her and her abilities I'm just not impressed. 

If Lady Nagant was battling somebody other than the top 3 in class A(Todoroki,Bakugo, Deku) then we could talk. But there is just no way I could ever consider her a threat.

If Deku is able to use all for one at 100% she should stand no chance at all. Even 60% should be more than enough. But when you combine that with the fact that Deku has access to all of these other quirks and can seemingly consult with the other holders of one for all at will. In terms of strategy and ability, she stands no chance.

If Lady Nagant were able to somehow beat Deku I would be extremely disappointed.

All for One gave Lady Nagant Airwalk which seems like a cheat because as we've seen with Deku you can't simply give someone a quirk and expect for them to be able to just use it right away. It takes a while for them to adjust to it, let alone be able to use it in a battle.

I still feel like there is going to be a bit of talk no jutsu going on at the end of this battle. Overhaul's presence nearly guarantees that at some point.

I've also seen some suggestions that the Hero Lady Nagant took out in the past was a corrupt hero. And some people are suggesting her character may be a bit like Stain's and she's not a true villan.

Only time will tell! But I want Deku to continue to show out. This level of quirk should not be able to dominate him with his current abilities.

      I'm a little disappointed with this chapter. I was expecting more. It seems like this will be wrapped up rather quickly. I was expecting and even looking forward to a big battle with Bakugo. That being said it was cool to see 1A working together to catch up with Deku. 
      One thing I didn't like though was Endeavor's conversation with Hawks about getting Best Jeanist to come and  just subdue Deku. As if he all he has to do is flip a switch. I know I've said this before but Deku at this point should be unbeatable. If he has any hope of winning against the villains. It should take the combined efforts of HAwks, Jeanist and Endeavor to have any chance of capturing him. Endeavor struggled with the high end Nomu. All For One blew Jeanist away with a single move. Hawks took down twice....Deku should be unmatched at this point.
      One last thing. In the very last panel it almost seems to indicate that Deku's danger sense is activating. Up until now it has been quiet as Deku has previously pointed out there is no real intent behind the moves. So it makes you wonder if a surprise attack by the villains is underway in the next chapter.

      Soooo! It seems like Deku will be working with Hawks, Endeavor and best Jeanist for a little while moving forward. 
      I'll be honest and admit I'm not all that excited about them knowing all about his powers. It's cool that they know that he received his power from all might. But I also feel that the full extent of his power should remain a mystery.
      Smokescreen is awesome though. It seems like Deku will use it in all of his interactions with ordinary people and heroes to conceal his identity.
      Danger sense's range seems to have increased as well. It kind of feels like a combination of spider sense and supermans super hearing. I wonder if there are more complexities to it that we aren't aware of yet.
      Gran Torino handing over his cape to Deku and then telling him that taking out Shigiraki is another way of saving him is interesting and ominous.
      With everyone telling Deku to kill Shigaraki you have to believe that he is going to do just the opposite. My best guess is that at some point, all might will die by Shigarki. This will enrage Deku but even with all that hatred that results from his death, Deku will track down and beat Shigaraki but still spare him. Somehow Shigaraki then dies fighting against All for one so he is redeemed but still pays for all of his crimes.
      On a side note, I really like the look of Deku's phone, it somehow looks like the cell of a super hero to me.

      Let The Hype Begin!
      So this is a pretty hype chapter. It's a bit anti-climatic since we know that Deku isn't going all out in this fight. He can't because he's fighting his friends. Although, he might get a little more serious when Bakugo joins in.
      Why Does Everyone Need to Know All The Details About One For All?
      One thing about this fight though is that it seems that everyone is aware of his current power level. Bakugo even says that he heard how Deku unlocked the fourth and the sixth abilities. And that just feels like too much information for him to know. It's one thing for the others to know that Deku has One for All but for them to know that he is currently on a path to unlocking other quirks that are stored within it is a bit troubling. Theoretically anyone of them could be captured or even spied on by a villan and then All for One would know about his new abilities as well. Ochaco even knows that smokescreen is the sixth's ability!
      The argument can be made for Bakugo to know about Deku's abilities since he was the first one to be let in on the secret but he just brazenly blasts the information out loud amongst the rest of class 1A and possibly civilians that could over hear.
      New Abilities and Upgraded Quirks!
      As we go through this chapter it seems like each class member is given a chance to shine and show off some new abilities. Momo's was a bit over the top but I liked it, because it shows how detailed she's become in creating stuff. It appears she created a machine to put Deku to sleep😅. Of course he breaks out of it but still, it just goes to show how versatile and potentially powerful her creation quirk can be.
      The new move that really caught my eye was Tokoyami's Ragnarok: Womb. Just the name alone sounds epic! He's uses this move to imprison Deku momentarily but Deku shoots out of it. I suspect he uses FA Jin to escape but who knows. I feel like his enhanced strength via One For All should be enough by itself. Either way though, Tokoyami is very surprised so I suspect this must be a really strong new move for him.
      Todoroki's heaven piercing ice wall sounds cool but I don't know how useful it will actually be for practical purposes. Those are the main ones that stood out to me. But the big ones I'm sure are yet to come. Bakugo, Ochaco and Lida. Between those three I'm sure we'll get a few surprises.
      My Impressions of The Battle So Far
      The more I think about the way this battle is going, the more I miss the old Deku. I like the Deku that thinks things through, strategizes and finds a way to win or lose in a spectacular way. 
      By the end of all this I'm hoping Deku is able to crush them all but they somehow convince him to stay. There is no way that he can beat All for One and Shigiraki without displaying a lot more power. I still think Deku would have a lot of trouble with Gigantomachia if he fought him 1 v 1. As a matter of fact its really hard for me to think of any hero that could take him on and supposedly he's only the third most powerful villian that we currently know about. So in my mind there is still a lot more leveling up that Deku has to do.

      FA Jin!
      I think this quirk is going to be pretty interesting because at first glance, it almost seems like another base One for All.
      When you think of basic One for All we know that its an enhancement quirk. 
      What I don't understand is why does Deku need to use FA Jin at all? We've already seen All might "leap tall buildings in a single bound" basically fly through the air and propel himself using the pure strength of One for all.
      So I suspect that this quirk actually does something. From some speculation I've seen online FA Jin seems to be something akin to storing up and releasing explosive energy.
      Perhaps this will give Deku the overwhelming strength advantage in a fight against One for All/Shigaraki. Although personally I was hoping for a defensive quirk. Deep in my heart I'm still hoping he has some type of revival quirk where Deku can't be hurt but if he dies he is revived after a short time.(One can dream!)
      Either way, I'm looking forward to the next chapter, so we can get a more detailed explanation of his new quirk Fa Jin. I suspect its not going to be quite what we expect since it would make it incredibly similar to One for All's normal strength enhancement.

      Lady Nagant
      Woahhh. Now that was an unexpected ending! While I always expected Deku to win in some flashy way. I did not expect the ending to be so dark and tragic! Lady Nagant's body seemingly just self destructed!
      However, the last panel does hint that Lady Nagant may still survive. Instead of dying she may be severely injured. Hawks arrives just in time to catch Lady Nagant before she falls to the ground. If she's still breathing can Erie rewind her back to her former state? That would be awesome. Hopefully this time we would actually be able to see it instead of it happening off screen like it did with Mirio.
      All For One
      This brings up a larger question though, just how powerful is All For One and how much can he see? It seems like he can spontaneously make someone self-destruct? That makes no sense at all. Could that be another quirk that he's added to his inventory? And how does he know exactly when to make it happen? I'm sure we'll get an explanation at some point but how on earth will Deku ever be able to go toe to toe with All For One and Shigiraki? For that matter how was All Might able to fight him one on one? In hindsight it seems like All For One was holding back when he fought All Might.
      New Theory On All For One's Quirk
      On first read, I figured that All For One's words in this chapter were just basic evil villain talk but after reading the chapter again, I thought to myself, what if All For One's quirk is actually something much more complicated than simply stealing and transferring quirks.
      What if All For One's true power was  creating some kind of quirk contract with and individual? Is it possible that when he steals a quirk he has to give something in return? Maybe he has to transfer part of his health or vitality in exchange when he takes someone else's quirk. And in the same way, when he gives a quirk to someone, perhaps he can set choose to set a condition on the transfer i.e. requiring that the receiver grants him a portion of their lifeforce or vitality in return but only at a time of his choosing.
      That's the only way I can explain what happened to Lady Nagant. I also like the idea that his quirk is more about forming contracts with other people. This would help to explain why All For One is always in a suit, has good communication skills and is so charismatic. He's a businessman! 😅
      I'm probably way off but its still cool to think about. I guess we'll find out the full details sooner or later!
      The Vestiges
      The Lady Nagant surprise ending brings up even more questions. What in the world are the vestiges thinking? Why didn't they warn Deku about everything that All For One is capable of? Why not tell him that he can make people randomly combust from miles away. Surely they would have encountered this and a lot of other things.
      It's clear to me now, that the vestiges of One For All are holding back a lot of information from Deku. It almost makes you wonder if they won't try to take over Deku's body at some point just to fight One For All. Some of them have clearly already made it known that they have reservations about Deku's competency.
