    he's never done anything except throw temper tantrums and be all might's guilt complex
    he didn't do shyt to eraser head - the nomu did that... this dude gets talked up in the universe only second behind deku. the entire league is worthless outside of terrorizing kids on their field trips
    the last villain was fueled by pedo powers ffs
    there's no such thing as a perfect final villain for deku anymore :why:

    shigaraki is the discount Overhaul no matter how you cut it
    better crew
    better powers
    better goals
    better plans

    and they essentially wasted him.

    i like where this is going.

    Especially how even the monster knows Tomura is currently a buster, his upgrade is around the corner

    Overhaul’s issue was that he didn’t really see his subordinates as people but tools. I also wouldn’t say Overhaul has a better crew. I’d take Twice, Dabi, and Magne (RIP) over most of Overhaul’s crew.

    Overhaul was broken though.

    Their building him up to Deku’s rival. So he’s developing as a villan as Deku is developing as a hero. Actually like this better than Shigaraki being all powerful already.

    I agree. I thought it was pretty obvious but the little 4th wall breaking of Shigaraki changing the title last chapter should have clued anyone in.

    The best thing about how this manga handles character growth is how gradual it is. It’s not right after a fight where all the mental trauma or barriers are overcome. Bakugo has obviously grown a lot since the series has gone on (Him prioritizing saving the civilian and Small Might, in his last fight, over beating the villain is one of my favorite moments for him as was him making sure to get the property back untouched) but it’s been very small changes.

    Same with Todoroki who is still dealing with his dad issues even though he’s technically using his fire side.

    Shigaraki has also changed very gradually but noticeable. He’s obviously talented (Dude immediately picked up Eraser Head’s weakness and crippled him in one on one combat which is no small feat) but his head wasn’t on right. From threatening to kill Kurogiri just because he wasn’t able to stop Iida to losing his shyt after he lost Noumu to biding his time to attack Overhaul when the time was right even though Overhaul killed Magne.

    He’s slowly starting to understand making moves that pay off in the long run and thinking less irrationality. We know he impresses the Doctor enough to get use of a High End Noumu too.

    I want to see more of Gigantomachia though.

    Changing or “developing” characters too quickly leads to Naruto-ish “Jesus no Jutsti” where people change their personalities the next time we see them.

    Characters develop across far shorter arcs but their growth is incremental. Todoroki went from hating half of himself and his quirk to understanding he’s his own personal to dealing with the guilt of “abandoning his mom after getting sent away” to understanding how his narrow sighted goals made him more like endeavor than he realized to trying to empathize and understand his dads convictions.

    Characters develop but it takes time and experience to internalize that growth, in story. Not much time has really passed since we joined UA.

    Class president and Kirishima are a perfect example of marking a character for development, giving them time, their hurdle, and solutions (short and long term) towards developing progressively. even side characters who haven't had their own arcs have developed more than todoroki has since the sports tournament.

    its not some impossible feat - todoroki is a textbook placeholder character man... the writer doesn't know what to do with him. so he's gonna be exactly as powerful as he needs to be in order to become truly relevant or job out accordingly to push someone else's value/development.
