My Hero Academia Just Made a Clever Cultural Festival Nod

The final battle against All For One has begun in the last arc of My Hero Academia, and it seems that all hands are on deck when it comes to this massive battle between heroes and villains. With many young heroes entering the fray beside the heroes that we have come to know in Class 1-A, one specific panel has given us the return of a character that is making a comeback since first appearing in the Cultural Festival Arc which saw the nefarious Gentle Criminal attempting to put an end to the day of celebration.

Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of My Hero Academia’s manga, Chapter 345, you might want to steer clear as we’ll be diving into serious spoiler territory.

With all the young heroes helping in the plan to defeat the villains, Chargebolt has an essential role to play, helping to power the headquarters of UA Academy where the battle against Shigaraki is taking place. With the young villain having the powers of All For One at his disposal, a number of crime fighters with Quirks that grant them mastery over electricity have banded together to give the heroes a major leg-up in the battle against All For One’s heir. Joining Chargebolt is Yuyu Haya, a young hero last seen during the Cultural Festival who was assisting Nejire of the Big Three with her unique apparel.

As Best Jeanist explains to Shigaraki, Yuyu Haya and other electrical heroes are helping in creating this “coffin in the sky,”:

“Our grand assignment was finding a way to contain you, with your ability to cause instant, widespread death and your speed on par with what All Might’s was in his prime. Observations from your two battles since your great awakening led us to this ideal arena. It was all made possible by a 16-year-old young lady. The shelter and evacuation system created by the principal plus a mechanism to counter your decay Quirk, and yet another program, to miniaturize the segmented blocks and launch them like drones.”

What do you think of this Easter Egg that takes u back to the days of the Cultural Festival? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of UA Academy.
