This weeks chapter is an explosive one, starting with Giga being knocked out because of Momos sedative (finally), and about 200 heroes getting absolutely pasted whilst waiting for it to kick in.
My Hero Academia 294 Discussion:
Whilst the heroes are dealing with Giga, the Nomus are also wrecking havoc, these sentient monsters have given a royal beatdown to the heroes and one of the reasons the villains were able to run rings around the heroes for so long.
The star of this chapter however is Mr Compress, as he and his fellow villains are being bound by Best Jeanists threads, he is desperate to escape and uses his ability to remove a huge chunk of his hip and ribs to give his arms enough room so that he could wriggle his way out of the threads. He makes this sacrifice because he believed in Shigis cause, come together and cause chaos for the heroes, but there is more of a reason for this, some of his friends had not yet achieved their goals, and for that reason he decides it is worth him giving himself a fatal injury to make sure his friends dreams are realised.
He used this time to try and get Spinner to revive Shigi, who can then give Giga the command to get back up and resume the rescue operation. Mr Compress then further goes on to say this is his blood bound duty, and then frees himself, compressing spinner and Shigi and manages to escape from Best Jeanists binding and begins to free villains he comes across along the way.
We get a bit of information of an anti hero from the past, Oji Harima, The Peerless Thief who was mentioned earlier on in the story, where he was pretty much the robin hood of his time, targeting heroes who had gotten rich from the hero system that had just be created and giving the money back to the people, and Mr Compress feels he is living up to the legacy of this old anti hero, although the extent of this claim is yet to be verified as Mr Compress seems less anti hero and more outright psychopathic murderer, I wonder if Oji would be agree with Mr Compress’s actions.
Meanwhile Dabi and Shoto are still fighting, with Dabi deciding his masterplan can wait when his father is conscious and can actually see Dabi killing all his loved one.
The final revelation is made, Mr Compress is Oji Harimas great great grandson, and it’s also revealed that he has a cybernetic arm, and quite the handsome face as well. He believes he is handing over his grandfathers fight to Shigi who will destroy the current hero system and therefore inheriting the bandit kings dream, which he was unable to finish off himself, but now Compress will make sure Shigi will have another chance to complete it.
MY HERO ACADEMIA 295 Spoilers & Predictions:
So the next chapter is going to be an interesting one, with all the momentum finally heading the heroes way, the timely reinforcements along with the weakening of the small villain unit, it was inevitable that the villains would get worn down eventually if they couldn’t finish the fight quickly. What happens with Shigi is a mystery, the time he’s been out of the fight should mean that his healing quirk must have done something to help him out but he is yet to gain conciseness, which will really dictate how the fight will go in the future.
Mr Compresses sacrifice will be another blow to he villains as he was a core member of the league, along with twice the league is now taking quite the beating, not forgetting the doctor has also been apprehended as well as Kurogiri, the future of the league itself will be interesting, will they recruit more, or will it shatter to pieces, forever broken from the losses they sustained.
