Volume 5, titled "Shoto Todoroki: The Origins", is a crucial addition to this epic Shōnen manga series. Written by the renowned mangaka Kōhei Horikoshi and published by Ki-Oon, this volume features 192 pages focusing on the story of Shoto Todoroki, a student at U.A. High School. It immerses us in a universe where superheroes are omnipresent. Izuku, a passionate and determined young man, dreams of becoming a hero despite lacking a special power, or "quirk." Saved by his idol All Might during a villain attack, he is given the opportunity to become his successor. Weakened by an old injury, All Might can only use his quirk three hours a day, making Izuku's mission even more critical. After intensive training, Izuku joins Yuei High School, but mastering One for All, the power inherited from All Might, proves to be a significant challenge.
The volume continues with the unfolding of the tournament, featuring epic battles between the young apprentice heroes. One of the highlights is the fight between Ochaco Uraraka and Katsuki Bakugo, with the latter emerging victorious. The tension rises a notch when Shoto Todoroki, a central character in this volume, faces Izuku Midoriya. This intense duel sees each opponent deploying phenomenal power, pushing Izuku to surpass the limits of his body. Parallelly, a psychological intrigue unfolds, with Izuku trying to convince Shoto to stop limiting himself and accept his true nature.
This fifth volume of My Hero Academia, shedding light on the origins of Shoto Todoroki, offers readers an explosive combination of action and character development. The battles are intense, and Izuku's journey to master his new power adds depth to the story. The relationships between the characters, particularly between Izuku and Shoto, add a layer of complexity and emotion, making this volume a must-read for fans of the series.
