Where there are heroes, there will be vigilantes and outlaws who strive for the public’s well-being in their way. My Hero Academia: Vigilante’s spin-off manga is based on this very concept.
The spin-off manga is impressive enough to have a separate fanbase of its own. The protagonist Koichi Haimawari is somewhat like our Deku, but at the same time, so different from him. His unique traits and choices have made him immensely popular among MHA fans.
Unfortunately, this saga is soon ending as My Hero Academia: Vigilantes spin-off manga’s latest chapter 125 has revealed that the final chapter will be released on May 27, 2022.
The latest chapter is terrifying as we see All For One pulling the strings to acquire Koichi’s powers. With a super bio-engineered Nomu up his sleeve, I can only imagine how The Crawler will overcome this.
Even the mighty Endeavor, with the help of Hawks, lost an eye while defeating the enhanced Nomu, so it’s obvious how difficult it will be for Koichi to defeat him. Not to mention, Pop Step is still in the hospital under therapy.
I guess that she might get used as bait to lure Koichi to take a reckless step which would mean All For One’s victory.
I can’t wait for the finale, but it also makes me sad that this gem of a manga is ending so soon.
Only an anime adaptation seems like the remedy right now, or maybe a cameo in the upcoming season?
