New clip for My Hero Academia Volume 38 teases confirmation of a shocking death
Fans of the My Hero Academia manga are all too familiar with the tragic panel in Chapter 362, at the end of Volume 36. It saw Bakugo Katsuki, or Dynamight, lying on the ground, with open lifeless eyes and his chest crushed with blood coming out of his mouth. The panel was a result of his fight with Tomura in the Final War Arc.
The chapter sent shockwaves through the fandom illustrating the supposed death of one of the most popular and beloved characters of the series. Despite the panels showing Bakugo's lifeless body, there are some fans who are not entirely convinced that he is dead for good.
Many still believe that Horikoshi will find a way to resurrect him. Whether the sentiment has some weight to it, or if it's just a product of denial, remains to be seen, as the death was not explicitly confirmed.
However, the newly released promotional video for Volume 38 tells a different story. The video features the Big 3 of U.A. High School, namely Mirio Togata, Tamaki Amajiki, and Nejire Hado. The short clip begins with the scene where Bakugo charges at Tomura and takes a critical hit.
This one frame has gotten the fandom to start talking about Bakugo's possible demise again, with many claiming that it might put a lid on the case by confirming Bakugo's death.
Fans now await more information about Bakugo Katsuki's fate and wonder whether he will return for the finale or not. The war between the heroes and the villains has reached its climax and it won't be long before one side emerges victorious. Needless to say that the fandom is pumped to witness the epic draw its final curtain.
