My Hero Academia: Bakugo’s abduction by the League of Villains was a carefully calculated move designed to draw out the heroes—All Might in particular—and destroy them. Midoriya and his friends set out on a rescue mission that eventually pulls in not only All Might but also several other heroes! The casualties mount, until at last the mastermind of the plot appears—All for One, the only villain powerful enough to take on All Might head-to-head and possibly win!
Midoriya and Bakugo have a difficult relationship to say the least. However, in the moments leading up to Bakugo’s kidnapping, there was a change in his tone towards Deku. Even with his request for Deku to stay back as he was being taken away. It wasn’t his normal “Damn nerd” sort of request. It was almost a caring request to stay back and not hurt himself any further.
Now that the hero’s have arrived to rescue Bakugo and take out the villains, All for One makes an appearance and shocks even All Might. Deku and the others remain hidden out of sight as they plan on how to save their classmate.
This volume was truly about the fall of the symbol of peace in the eyes of the public. Watching his fight with All For One and seeing his true form were both heart breaking and damaging to the students, and the public. Todoroki, Midoriya and Idia all knew that they were not to use their quirks without a license. Their plan ended up working without violating that law, though they did disobey their teachers yet again.
The final chapter after the fight sees us head straight into the license arc of the story and the students living in dorms. This meant we finally got to meet the parents of many of the students, including Bakugo’s. The moment he went outside and confronted All Might about Midoriya had me hoping he would reveal it so Bakugo understood Deku better but he didn’t reveal it. However, Bakugo isn’t stupid and even if All Might can’t tell him, he already knows the truth at this point.
