Kohei Horikoshi’s superhero manga MHA by Kohei Horikoshi has a spin-off in My Hero Academia: Vigilantes. Volume 6 is the next step. It is written by Hideyuki Furuhashi and drawn by Betten Court.
In Knuckleduster’s absence, the Crawler and Pop Step have been continuing their vigilante activities, but on a smaller scale. The pro-heroes Eraserhead and Midnight are investigating the strange rise of civilians whose quirk powers are going out of control. Coincidentally, Midnight runs into Pop Step who takes her out looking for whoever is drugging the people.
Of course, the artwork is fantastic. They have excellent character designs and I love the way the action is illustrated.
I am not going to lie, I miss Knuckleduster. He has a small appearance, but I wanted a little bit more. With this one, it felt a lot like a filler story and more to tie up loose ends. I am also confused about Eraserhead’s involvement. His role and investigation are completely apart from what the vigilantes were doing, so I wasn’t really sure why he was there, as cool as he is.
Apart from that, I do enjoy the Crawler and Pop Step’s growing relationship. They have some good banter and I think their relationship is very clever. The story continues to utilize them very well and I have fun watching them fun if that makes any sense.
