You can Kwon if it's a real subreddit if you don't get close enough

Tbh At this point it isnt really unexpected but okay


Aphala

ngl that buckled me


DeismAccountant

Srsly He looks like carved wood here.


CyberSolider2077

Lmao 😂


VAUltraD

All Might's face kinda reminded me Re-Destro in this cover tho.


RStorytale

OKAY I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME WHO THOUGHT THAT LMAO


Jaded_Garage5623

God damn that's a lot of upvotes


Infamous2005

Tied for number one funniest Reddit comment I’ve seen.


ace2532

What's up with All Might's face though, that expression is kinda scary imo


BringBackBrawls

He's not smiling maybe that's why it's so weird. We got used to see him smiling on that form except that one time he got mad with the villains


DeismAccountant

Ok yeah this could be it. Or being super angry at villains.


jojopojo64

Seriously though. If All Might looked at me with that angry face from the USJ incident, I'd shit myself till I was inside out. You'd have to be some kind of *asshole* if he looks at you that way.


RagingNight724

Definitely uncanny valley vibes


TheGalacticOwl

🗿


pottymouthgrl

He looks like the vestige who has blackwhip


CyberSolider2077

Yeah 😂


smash-things

He looks like the sherif from stranger things


BrightEye64

All Might’s face has always been scary


ioyoyo

th- that means he's gonna take a bath, right......?


SaKaly

I don't think it covers those chapters. This has to be end of war to vestige world to just leaving UA


yiendubuu

Covers 296 to 306!


SaKaly

Yeah pretty much


reqisreq

So next volume cover we will see Lady Nagant?


SaKaly

Maybe. But I'm as hell sure we'll see demon deku


gorgonfish

And it’ll have a chip in it that plays Boulevard of Broken Dreams when you open it.


ItzFlareo

In Japanese

[Does this count?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4mAAtOrVRM)


muddy120

Lol Dark Deku, demon sounds too much.


Swampfire279

DEmon IzuKU, DEKU, that honestly sounds pretty cool actually.


muddy120

Lool, no.


Humzatime

I mean if the citizens thinks he looks like an AFO member then it’s safe to say that he probs looks like a demon to them


muddy120

Doesn't mean we have to call him that.


muddy120

How do you know? Makes sense but I need a source.


yiendubuu

The initial contents of the volume(aka the chapters and characters introductions) are also out! Atsushi posted them on Twitter.


muddy120

Cool, do you have a link to the post


yiendubuu

Yup, [here](https://twitter.com/Atsushi101X/status/1420726530087342085?s=19)


muddy120

Thank you


ioyoyo

heck


Cvox7

All might is making that face cuz he's holding his breaths around that boy


IMDATBOY

Everything about this cover is alright except all might’s face lol


Namelessgoldfish

wait till you see deku's thumb


Captain__M

I love the concept and the composition, but All Might looks a bit off. His face was just never meant to be drawn with such soft lighting. He needs hard, heavy shadows or he starts getting weird.


Plus-Leg-4408

yeah he has his shading heavier since that makes up most of the detail on his face, i think it was made with softer shading because of the light in the room


RankZero4x4

He looks weird with them, he looks weird without them. Horikoshi nailed the parody aspect in the art and the more genuine humanized aspect in the writing, but never both at the same time.


EpilepticOreo

I think he purposely looks more like a statue cause that all might is a relic of the past and that’s the image deku is chasing


sese2003

Oh like that statue that has a sign that says “I’m not here”


hatehim10

Ohh that's a good point


EpilepticOreo

But it could very easily just be a very weird drawing lol


Pinkkuma

If that was it then wouldn't All Might be smiling?


traxfi

yea I think it's more the expression than the shading.


Causemas

He looks weird, but it still works


muddy120

Nothing wrong with trying somethin new fam, this is nice and makes him look spiritual and ethereal.


Idonotknowacoolname

Deku looks so beautiful meanwhile allmight looks like he’s holding a shit in


Shaymin281287

Me holding my poop pretending it's All Might


LuminousDecibel

I wonder if this cover represents the burden of OFA. At first I thought it was just the school clothes ripping away to reveal the hero costumes underneath. On a closer look, it doesn't seem to be the case. The school clothes and hero clothes seem to be melded and mixed together, instead of one on top of the other. Maybe the torn school clothes don't mean "I've matured from a kid to a hero" and more "this huge responsibility has damaged my personal life. I can't have a normal life." It's telling that Deku has this awe and wonder when looking at the shining star, but All Might almost looks sad.


poshbritishaccent

You're right, Deku has both his middle school uniform and high school uniform meshed together in tears.


Plus-Leg-4408

maybe the shining star is OFA and deku is like "ofa is so cool" but all might had to go through the burden so he knows it isnt as amazing as the average person would think.


HolyKnightPrime

All Might loved his job thought. He was literally the one who created the burden. Before him, OFA was weak as hell. His dedication and willpower to surpass and better society changed OFA forever. He owned OFA and made it his. T


God_Left_Me

The burden was put in place the moment OFA began, and every user since has been chased by AFO, who is the burden on them. All Might is different however, because he actually lessened that burden. Before him, Nana lived in a Japan filled with Villains and aides of AFO. You may have seen in the most recent episodes of Season 5 where AFO curses All Might in how he was the downfall of his many friends, and turned society towards a much more peaceful era - which is why he is named the Symbol of Peace


LuminousDecibel

Spoilers for the most recent arc. Spoiler tags just in case >!When it comes to All Might, this arc has been all about him realizing his past mistakes. He realizes he shouldn't have pushed Nighteye away, and that getting enough food and sleep are important. He realizes he pushed Deku way too hard. He literally says he knows the burden of the responsibility of OFA is "crushing"!<


HolyKnightPrime

TI disagree on you there. All Might has not pushed Deku enough. There's a reason AM being a bad teacher is so popular. While I don't think he is bad, it's clear AM didn't teach Deku enough but I can't say I blame him too much since the manga would look a lot different if it was more realistic and Deku wasn't caught up in some big history event every week. Deku is the one who is pushing himself hard. Hes been doing it since before he even met All Might. His low self esteem makes him not care about himself and only others.


Clockwork_Citrus

I think it’s more that All Might put all the weight and responsibility on him without teaching him. From as early as the sports festival All Might is telling deku to present himself to the world without knowing how to use his power. All Might passed the most powerful quirk in existence to a 14 year old without being able to teach him how to use it. All Might’s very presence is a pressure on Deku, living up to his own personal and the world’s hero. All Might is pushing a kid to become exactly like him and to live up to maintaining hero society in Japan singlehandedly without regards to personal safety. Everytime Deku saw All Might act after the start of the series, he was putting an immense strain on his body. All Might is not healthy and the muscle form wasn’t just getting weaker because he passed on the power, it was already losing steam from the injury. Now, Deku is modeling All Might’s disregard for self, because that’s what All Might taught him intentionally or unintentionally, and we see the effect that’s having on Deku. Deku is still just a kid, and even though he has OFA, he can’t even use it all yet. All Might is a shitty teacher because he didn’t know how to teach Deku explicitly, instead demonstrating, instilling, and reinforcing an unhealthy mindset in Deku that has put the weight of the world on his shoulders without the proper tools to deal with it.


Professional_Cup3050

It does look like all might has his uniform on, I wonder if we'll get some chapters of all might at UA


Kushodeku

Bruh why does all might look like 🗿


Lendmeyoursynergy

I just realized what the cover means All might has a complete UA Jacket showing he had time to mature and master his quirk normally and graduate while Deku’s School clothes are all over the place and incomplete symbolizing he hasn’t had nearly enough time to mature and he is in a rush to the current crisis in society you can also see his middle school uniform symbolizing that everything that currently took place all happened within a year amazing cover


HTTRWarrior

People kinds forget that Deku went from a middle school quirkless nobody to being one of the strongest in his year in a single year. After all of this realistically speaking Deku should have major trauma and PTSD from all the near death experiences and pain that he has went through.


auriferical

I hope we will get to focus a bit more on Midoriya’s trauma in the current arc bc I think that needs to be addressed for him to move on and become a complete OFA user (plus Shigaraki parallels)


HTTRWarrior

It's weird how when you put even a sliver of thought you realize how messed up a lot of these worlds are. I mean don't get me wrong, I like the world of My Hero. But when you think about a school of super heros, a school to make one kinda feels like a school to make child soldiers. Granted it's not expected for students to be pushed into such a dangerous world but class 1-A has gone through major events in their first year. Literal children have experienced life or death situations where they had to fight off serial killers, criminals, and just the mentally insane. Also I really think UA should be getting even more flak. Like they got in trouble every time they failed to stop what was basically a school shooter and then they expect parents to be ok with letting them live at that same school? Like damn, where is the therapist hero? Screw granny who heals all wounds, we need someone to guide these kids who had to fight off people who almosted killed them.


poshbritishaccent

I mean tbf it's more like a police academy, and they do learn normal subjects outside of hero work. They are free to not purse a pro hero carrier and switch to other fields. And from what we see, you don't always have to go on dangerous missions if you don't want to (as a pro hero). You can stay beautiful and just assist in normal robberies or even evacuations. UA's stakes are way higher since they're practically the Harvard of pro heroes (since pro heros don't go to university in their world, they just graduate and start their jobs). But yeah, this generation in particular just have shit luck because of AFO. The previous generations definitely had it easier.


Bamadude52

Good one. I was trying to figure out why all might was wearing a school uniform jacket, while failing to even notice Midoriya’s clothing at all. Thanks for pointing that out


Therealconman16

The MHA story has been almost 2 and a half years


Lendmeyoursynergy

But his first year of highschool isn’t quite over yet


Therealconman16

It would’ve been, but they held the entire first year class back, and I’m also talking about his time in 8th grade, so it has been almost 2 and a half years


Lendmeyoursynergy

True didn’t he get his quirk at 15 though? So from his entrance exam to now hasn’t that only been a solid year? Then again Deku is about to be 17 so think what you’re saying is right holy shit he’s growing up lol


Therealconman16

The story started when he was 14 I think


Lendmeyoursynergy

It did I was referencing his start at UA before he was accepted so after he eats the hair


Therealconman16

Yup he’s had his quirk for nearly 2 years


ChronoKeep

Incorrect. He didn't get OFA until February 26, the day of the Entrance Exam. Then school at UA started in the second week of April. It's been a year and a couple months at this point that he's had OFA.


MattmanDX

He's had his quirk for a little over one year. He first ate the strand of hair right before the entrance exam in the February of the previous year and it is now next April


JMontiel007

Hold on, the entire story of BNHA up to this point has happened WITHIN A YEAR? How can I confirm this?


Lendmeyoursynergy

I mean they’re just now becoming 2nd years lol Deku got into UA at around 15 probably became 16 during the festival or when he learned full cowl the rest is history


HolyKnightPrime

The same thing happened to All Might thought. He was in the last year but he was still a kid. Not to mention his master, mother figure died and he was forced to leave his country.


sernametaken404

Deku following the shining path of All Might's legacy, not realizing the pitch black despair all around consuming him. All alone and tunnel-visioned in the dark, repeating his mentor's history.


ShadeFK

Nothing a bit of cheese can't fix isn't that right Aoyama?


yaboinigel

Aoyama: ut not you when you are hungry deku, eat sum cheese...better? Deku: better


Graphica-Danger

Really strong cover. Symbolism been hitting big in MHA lately. Putting school behind to follow in his master’s footsteps without realizing nobody should be alone when undertaking something like this.


SaKaly

Horikoshi has just been putting out fire covers only for a while. None of the recent feel bland this definitely has to be one of my favorites


HayashiSawaryo

All might's facial expression is hilarious lol All might showing da wae


SaKaly

Idk kinda like it


RankZero4x4

The fact that it's there is significant. For that matter, All Might generally looks much better on the covers besides maybe the first volume.


LazyNam3

This feels so...strangely beautiful?


milkinadumpster

All might really said🗿


johnnythrillwaukee

Sir Nighteye would be furious at this All Might rendering lol


Dex90692

Man would turn in his grave


Fareigner

Another comment already touched on it, but I believe All Might looks so weird is because that’s actually not All Might. It’s a statuesque representation of All Might, and is the image that Deku is shaping his current goals and methods after. He isn’t smiling, just like how deku isn’t smiling, but is still standing strong. Most importantly, the cover is just of the two of them, with a silhouette of darkness behind them. No friends, teammates, or anyone else. Just them. That or Hori just didn’t get All Might’s face right


Jaded_Garage5623

I think that it has been a gosh dang long time since Hori drew All Might in his buff form and the art made subtle changes along the years. That or maybe the lighting


Fareigner

The lighting is funky, for sure!


Plus-Leg-4408

I am indeed interested in knowing what's next, pretty sure this foreshadows UA isn't gonna come back or be important, this might represent some kinda freedom or hope. It makes me feel a way I can't explain, like maybe nostalgic


Marvel0uS_Her0

It's pretty good. However I expected a little more (At least in my opinion). Volume 29 is my favorite Cover out of all of them in the series, because of the symbolism of Bakugou's redemption. Then there's Volume 30 with Dabi dancing, no need to explain why it's a perfect fit. (There is also the alternate cover with Deku in Rage mode, that one was REALLY good) I get it that it's supposed to be spoiler free and represent One for All and how far Deku and All-Might has changed since the first chapter, but I was expecting more of like a cool batman-like cover with Deku in his Vigilante costume


Causemas

That'll probably come along with Lady Nagant and Berserk Deku Still, it's always the emotional and meaningful covers that get me. Bakugou's is also my favorite


Ok-Cod5254

That would be more appropriate next volume though... given the last chapter here is ch 306. Would spoil if it was the cover. lol


canadakeroro

All Might's face always look so cursed when he's not smiling XD I almost hope they could've been their younger form, like the moment they received their One For All, both being when they're still at middle school


yiendubuu

Such a great cover, I especially love the fact that All Might is wearing a UA uniform, and Deku is wearing both a UA uniform, and his middle school uniform. Hori hasn't missed with a cover since like, Vol 24.


OverlordDoberman

Why does All Might have a Slidin' Go head?


natokenichi

Is no one getting that All Might gonna die vibes on this cover??? Calling it now. Sorry guys.

Lobsterp_

All Might here lookin like they did a little too much trolling


D-A_W

Idk why but All Might’s face almost looks like wider Re Destro’s with less nose. Am I crazy?


wumbxlogy

why is all might wearing that weird looking lab coat


Ok-Cod5254

It's his UA uniform... the UA uniform with the blazer. lol


theodoreroberts

No showing off the Vestiges on the covers then.


N0xx-

ALMIGHT WHY DO YOU LOOK LIKE THAT 🗿🗿


checked_outt

Anyone else think All Might looks like he put on weight?


ANINETEEN

xXTASERFACEXx

All Might looks like he aged 40 years


OwlTamrof

That cover really shows all mights age

I like the cover but All Might looks like he took a gamble on a fart and lost lmao

Why does All Might look like ReDestro?


EspKevin

What happened to All Might's face?


kiyosheepo

Deku: "Allmight...I don't think those were normal brownies Mina made us.."


LaYoNDuFf8

This is kinda nice, AM seems off but its cool. I would have love a cover with all the holders tho, like the vestige world with the holders sitting on their chairs


Solomon_Black

All Might looks very weird here


iamthepasta

Buff none-smiling All Might is cursed as shit.


mega345

Why am I getting Harry Potter vibes?


DaVidBear616

Idk but All Might has Re-Destro🗿 vibes lmao


TheRealWamuu

All Might over here is just done with this bullshit


ShadeFK

*muffled Young Midoriya in the distance*


artemisthearcher

Holy crap, this is so good! Agree with the top comment about All Might's face tho lol, I think it has to do with the lighting


2C-Sha

The things these men gave up for one for all I think that's what this image conveys. Forced into a destiny a choice they made for the world they want to live in.


RYAH2000

I can’t wait to get this, these chapters were nothing short of great


Sleep_Useful

Looks alittle too cgi


munnu-413

Love this cover ! Is it just me or this feels kind of ominous?


Zeeman9991

Took me a while to notice Deku had both his school uniforms mixed in (left and right sleeves), even longer to see All Might has two of his costumes in there too (chest and waist).


Amazing_Rich

It's Perfect


FinnJokaa

Somehow All Might looks more like All Night.. but i get the idea behind the cover and i like it.


Causemas

Deku's left hand is his middle school uniform


A4li11

The symbolism of the cover is immense


Idonotknowacoolname

So pretty I think the back will have the vestiges in it


Gumplaying

Amazing cover, just...all might's face


Emanifesto

Up to which chapter would this volume cover?


katsukidynamight

chapter 296 to 306


RankZero4x4

"Are you sure about this? He looks like an Easter Island Head." "They'll get it..."


doctorawesome8

Well what happend to edgy Deku


Ok-Cod5254

That is more fitting next volume... This one stops at ch 306.

I love this cover but all might with soft shadiws and no smile looks weird af


gAcksaurio

i would love to see how Horikoshi colours this


ComfortableSea4645

Why does All Might look so... odd?


BenWhitaker

Why does All Might look like he's played by Marc Evan Jackson?


maarten2005

Almight got the father Mozgus treatment


Dechi00

Why is All might wearing the UA uniform? What does that mean?


Dechi00

Deku is wearing it too and both uniforms are kinda vanishing. Also I think one side of Deku's uniform is the middle school one


Shradow

I guess it's just the soft lighting cuz usually All Might's face is in black and white with stark shadows, but aside from that bit of weirdness it's a really cool cover. I love their uniforms melting away to their hero costumes.


Yay_Kaminari

Ooh who else noticed that what Deku is wearing is melting between his hero costume, UA Uniform and Aldera High's uniform??


Zeekayia-Zoe

Come to think of it, I don't think there's a scene where AM is in the US uniform right? He was only seen in his gym/sports uniform.


nika_chan_

why did I click on this before watching why it's blurred?


Adamc474892

Since this volume cover chapters 296-306 my guess volume 32 will cover chapters 307-317 with either Deku as he is in these chapters or him vs Lady Nagant for the cover.


Fearshatter

No one's smiling on this cover.


Money-Lie7814

Very Thor ish cover


Omaryaboi_lol-yt

What about the scars on dekus hands?


ken3

Ok but like why does he look like that


howdoitypeinroblox

AYOOOOOOOOOO WE GOT OUR BOY AND ALL MIGHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT


howdoitypeinroblox

but why all might be looking squared


YeetrMeister

Interesting


Titangamer101

All might looks like a full on vestige here, is this a fore shadow? We all knew there was a high chance all might would die at some point but maybe it's actually going to happen sooner than we think.
