My Hero Academia’s anime might still be on hiatus, but the manga is dropping some major megatons when it comes to aspects of its story that fans have been waiting to see laid out for years. With the traitor within UA Academy’s ranks recently revealed, so to was the true form of Class 1-A’s resident invisible girl, Toru Hagakure, with one fan artist imagining a better look at the young heroine that was a part of the revelation that saw Midoriya struggling with what actions to take now that hero society hangs by a thread.
Much like the many other heroes of UA Academy, Toru Hagakure’s Quirk might, on the surface, seem fairly basic in just making her invisible, she has managed to train extensively to allow her to manipulate light, blinding enemies in front of her. On top of this skill, Hagakure has become the perfect partner to Aoyama, managing to control his naval laser beam and hurl it at enemies. Of course, this fact makes the revelation that Aoyama has been working with All For One throughout most of the series all the more heartbreaking for Hagakure specifically, as her true self was revealed in a heavily emotional scene.
Reddit User Luizhtx shared this perfect re-imagining of Hagakure’s pivotal moment wherein her true form was revealed as she attempted to pull Aoyama back from the brink as he lashed out following Deku discovering that he was working with All For One in order to save the lives of his parents:
It might be quite some time before we see this moment play out in the episodes of My Hero Academia’s anime adaptation, with the sixth season most likely spending the majority of its time focused on the major battle between the heroes and the Paranormal Liberation Front known as the “War Arc,” Needless to say, we imagine that, much like the source material, the television series will manage to make this one of the most emotionally charged moments in the history of Kohei Horikoshi’s Shonen franchise.
What do you think of this fresh take on Hagakure? Do you think it’s possible for Aoyama to redeem himself following the revelation of his traitor status?
