IS MY HERO ACADEMIA: VIGILANTES, VOL. 4 WORTH YOUR TIME?
WHAT DID WE THINK WITHOUT SPOILING IT?
I loved it.
My Hero Academia: Vigilantes volume four is another huge hit for me. Knuckleduster and Pop Step gets some time to shine and I am darned wowed by the results. Actually, our main hero Koichi becomes a background character of sorts this chapter! You know what? It works!
JUST BUY THIS!
Four volumes in and I find myself excited for this series to continue. If this gets cancelled I’m going to cry. I already preordered volume 5 and well yea, I am a fanboy at this point.
Volume 4 is an interesting and yet powerful balancing act of tone. Pop Step is balancing the upbeat and in your face of it it all. Her arc here really shows the best of the hero community and her learning how face her fears. Sure it was a little cheesy but it all worked out. Bonus points to the poop ton of cameos!
Knuckleduster, he is in the shadows this chapter and those shadows are dark. His plot point here is the culmination of a dark presence that has been in the background of the manga for the first three chapters. It comes to a head this volume and it’s not happy.
If there was ever an arc that blew me away in the My Hero universe, this was it. This sneaky ark that happened in the alleys in the dark. This arc which was built up and still came out of nowhere. Not saying anything else, just read this. The art was as always perfection and the story was perfectly paced.
My Hero Academia: VIGILANTES, Vol. 4 is required reading for any and all fans of the MHA universe.
