The ultimate battle between heroes and villains has begun. With the last moments of the series’ newest chapter, My Hero Academia Chapter 354 has surprisingly delivered one of Fumikage Tokoyami and Kyoka Jiro’s best scenes in the series!

Warning: The following article contains spoilers.

The previous chapter of the manga concluded with the final duel between Shoto Todoroki and Dabi. That means it’s time to check in on the other conflicts across the country. The manga hinted that we’d get to see the whole battle between All For One and Endeavor’s crew of pro heroes next.

It was hinted that the struggle against All For One would primarily involve both Hawks and Endeavor. Only the top two heroes would be able to stand a meaningful chance against the formidable enemy (while making sure to keep him from absorbing more quirks during the fight). However, when the battle between the two commences, it is soon revealed that additional young heroes have arrived on the battlefield, as both Tokoyami and Jiro fly in to save Endeavor at a crucial point.

My Hero Academia manga chapter 354 begins the confrontation between Endeavor and Hawks versus All For One. Using the conflict between Shoto and Dabi as leverage, All For One has been working hard to create gaps in the Hero’s defenses to land crucial attacks. The villain attempts to prod Endeavor and get under her skin. As Hawks points out, this is the same approach that damaged All Might, and both Endeavor and Hawks are soon fully pulled in by it until Tokoyami and Jiro fly in to save them.

Endeavor is hurt and driven out of the battle for a bit; All For One takes advantage of the chance to launch a massive attack on Hawks. Hawks is no longer swift enough to evade in time.

Out of choices, Tokoyami flies Jiro over and uses her Heartbeat Wall technique to construct a wall of sound to save Hawks from All For One’s attack. Despite being instructed to avoid the conflict, these kids have come to Hawks’ aid as Tokoyami does his hardest to keep Hawks alive.

My Hero Academia Chapter 353 recap

All For One mocked Endeavor and prepared to attack him at the end of My Hero Academia Chapter 353. He believes that the heroes will fail because they have many people to defend.

The fight is now focused on the powerful foe, All For One. Hawks and Jeanist are heading for All For One’s facial mask, his weakness. According to Stain, when All For One escaped, he brought health support gadgets to help him breathe. Those medical devices got built inside his face mask. As a result, breaking his mask will allow heroes to defeat him.

Despite Hawk’s warnings, Endeavor succumbs to All For One’s mind games and rushes in, proving disastrous.

All For One is now unleashing all of his rages. It will be interesting to see how long they can hold out. My Hero Academia manga chapter 354 was released on May 29, 2022. The new chapter is also available on the official websites of VIZ Media, Shonen Jump, and Manga Plus.
