My Hero Academia is pushing forward with Toru Hagakure’s best scene to date with the newest chapter of the series! Things have been quite terrible for the young heroes of Class 1-A even before the events of the Paranormal Liberation Front War, but it’s gotten even more intense for them with the Final Act of Kohei Horikoshi’s original manga series. The latest arcs have shined a spotlight on some of the young heroes who have yet to have breakthrough moments in the series thus far, and that’s especially true for the Invisible Girl, Toru Hagakure.
Hagakure was recently put in the center of the series as part of a major bait and switch Horikoshi had laid out for the reveal of the U.A. Academy’s ultimate traitor, but it was soon confirmed that she was not the traitor but in fact the first one to find out the true traitor’s identity. Given her closeness to the traitor over their time working together on missions through their time at the school so far, Hagakure took the center stage of the series for a brief time as she showcased her emotional strength and power with the newest chapter in confronting that traitor.
Chapter 337 of the series picks up right after Hagakure had sought out Izuku Midoriya after overhearing Yuga Aoyama’s parents talking about working with All For One. It’s then confirmed that Aoyama was indeed the traitor who has been feeding the villains information all this time, and it breaks Hagakure’s heart the most. She and Aoyama have been paired together through their teams in the series before, and had even been shown training to strengthen their quirks together to prepare for the villains’ next moves.
When Aoyama tries to fire a laser at Izuku, Hagakure ends up reflecting it as she’s done so in the past. This time it’s so powerful that the reflecting light power around her body begins to fade away, and her full face is revealed for the first real time in the series. But she also bears her whole soul at the same time as well and furiously asks Aoyama what was going through his head the whole time he had been working and learning alongside them in the school. It’s the most we’ve seen from her thus far, and hopefully not the last time fans get this opportunity.
