‘My Hero Academia: Vigilantes Vol. 9’ Manga Highlight

Volume nine of the MHA spin-off series My Hero Academia: Vigilantes is written by Hideyuki Furuhashi, illustrated by Betten Court, and published by Shonen Jump. It is based on the superhero manga by Kohei Horikoshi and was released in America by Viz Media.

After having a discussion about heroics with the pro-hero Eraserhead, The Crawler is considering retiring from his vigilante ways and going into the workforce. This upsets his partner Pop Step, who is deciding which direction she wants to go and whether to admit her feelings for the Crawler. To their shock, their mentor Knuckleduster arrives but seems to not be interested in discussing his absence. However, a dark force is targeting Pop Step and plans to use her not only against the Crawler, but the hero community at large.

It was good to see Knuckleduster back, even for a moment. As the series heads for the finale, I am curious to see what role he will play, though I have my suspicions. I was glad to see the story get back into focus with the Crawler and Pop Step. The two have had a lot of back and forth, but this entry sets them up for a battle that they may not survive.

This series, with ups and downs, has been an excellent scratch to that superhero itch that I have been feeling. I am enjoying it a great deal and cannot wait to see how it ends.
