Deku's father is working overseas. Stated in Inko's character sheet in the manga. Also, his quirk is breathing fire.

She knew what the heart of the matter was, and it was All Might that she was concerned with, not UA itself. Especially now that it had been confirmed that he was dying, which was probably the final piece in her personal puzzle of "why is my son showing so little concern for his own health?"
I think Inko-san was (and is) plenty concerned about Yuuei, too.

I'd agree the school is certainly part of her concerns as it should be. The self-destructive issue for Deku is made so much worse because the school is continually under attack. It's a layered issue for her which makes it all the more understandable. She has her son's health to worry about, villain attacks on the school, the potential for him to follow a dangerous and bloody example with All Might, etc. I'm just impressed she was still for him becoming a hero but rather just raising the option of him going to another school.

Of course not that this would resolve the issue. Tomura has Deku as a target and approached him once already. Honestly changing schools likely wouldn't make Deku much safer, but rather just drag the students of a different hero school into the line of fire.

How the heck does Deku have a "might makes right" attitude? That means a person thinks if you win you must be right, that the toughest/strongest person is just no matter what. That's not Deku at all. More like "Right makes might", but even that isn't accurate. Perhaps the best description would be "Right necessitates application of might". The problem is that he believes this to be true even when others have sufficient "might" to handle the situation. It could be completely clear that the pros have every base covered and there's no need for him, and he could be too injured to offer anything in the situation, but he'd still jump out there because if something needs to be done he thinks he needs to do it.

It is no secret that All Might has been a professional superhero all of his adult life, but just a few months ago he became a teacher. While it has been shown that he had talent and uncanny instincts in how to use his quirk and become the top hero, he SUCKS at being a teacher and he sorely lacks experience in that department that a few months will not be enough for him to "level up"; Even Aizawa has been a teacher for far longer.

Quote:
What AfO hints at, the student being independent, hits home. AfO hasn't essentially thought Shigaraki to become like him, he gave him the tools to develop himself and grow in his villainy. All Might has not realized how much Deku looks up to him. He takes after him in terrible ways, and no one has really sat down with the boy and told him that he could end up worse than All Might if he pushes things too far. What would do if AM had died that night?
You are confusing a hands free approach with "here, take 20 bucks and get off my sight". Remember Shigaraki has been under AfO tutelage for more than a decade, but in all that time he didn't nurtured him, he didn't show him how he ran a crime syndicate, he was until recently just a toy for him. Then All might nearly killed him and then he must have thought "I better have a plan B just in case All might manages to get me for good".

In layman terms, there is a big difference between been taught to ride a bycicle after being shown the basics and under surveillance of an adult and saying "here, take the credit card, buy the best bike money can afford and go to the park all by yourself". Of course OfA has rescued Shigaraki once he was in deep shit, because he still is his plan b.

I still think something does not add up. Deku has been several times in the hospital but we have never been shown his father making a phone call, sending him a message thru line (japanese whatsapp) or buying him something in amazon as compensation for not being there for him. Meanwhile he have been shown his mom in angst about her boy well being. I do not even remember being shown the classic family photo where the father face is blurred by light reflection aka white beam of light.

It would have been easier for the mangaka to say Deku's dad was dead or divorced long ago. But in the 21st century working in another country is no longer reason enough to have zero communication. unless of course there are other reasons.

1) He is in jail
2) The mom is lying (whether it is for a good or bad reason would not change the fact).
3) They have been brainwashed. In a world where quirks are common, making people forget you for their own good would not be that odd *cough*Charlotte*cough*
4) The reason Deku got so much into All might was to fill the hole a shitty father would leave.
5) Insert another big surprise the mangaka might have thought, reminds me how in Hatsukoi Zombie (another manga) the MC father has just appeared out of the blue (took 130 chapters).

Do you know how rare it is to hear anything from an overseas anime father? It's a trope at this point.

Again, in a romcom, harem or any shounen where said son risks his life without *anyone* noticing, yeah, it makes sense; but here it is not outlandish to think said father might have seen a live feed of his son literally flying thru the ski of ground zero where two superheavy weights were literally remodeling the landscape and not even a *sorry, I just finished work, get well soon, dad* text message?

Very often in sports, it's not the greatest that are good at coaching/managing, but the journeymen. It wouldn't be surprising if it was the same with heroes.

The thing I love about that last scene is that it's three good, kind and passionate people sitting in a room together, and they're totally at odds with each other for totally legitimate reasons. None of them are wrong, but there's no right answer.

So the author went with this trope instead. I hope we'll get to see him at some point. Still pretty odd that he was never mentioned by anyone within the series.

Even the name of Deku's father is apparently a joke about the fact that he has seemingly been out of his family's lives for so long.

not sure the concept of Deku's dad later revealed in a plot twist to be a villain is considered an overused cliche.

The only superhero I can think under such situation is Quicksilver, son of Magneto, but both of them have started as villians and it was never a secret so I do not think it really applies as a plot twist.

This exact situation is indeed not that common, but not unique either. And if you loosen the restrictions a bit, well...

Well, that was much lighter after the last two two weeks of thrills and tears (oh the look on Inko Midoriya's face when Izuku is basically leaving the nest). Leave it to Aizawa to be blunt, though I like that he said outright he'd expel almost all of them for that stunt if things weren't so dire.

All the rooms reflected their personalities so well, though too bad we didn't see Bakugo's room, but it was a good thing they skipped Mineta's room (he'd make a good politician with that kind of convincing). Yaoyorozu's so cute as the (nice) rich girl, though Todoroki's family is pretty well off too. And then Tsuyu to wrap it up, aw.

I almost forgot about those provisional licenses. Let's hope their training doesn't get interrupted this time, UA's track record at that has not been good so far.

To be fair, in the fiction world, maximum security prison is meant to be broke.

But yeah, it is extremely silly for not killing the most dangerous person in the world...unless they have some kind of tech (like what they did in Indexverse) or power to seal off AFO's power for real.

Haha ep13 was really great, and a nice change of pace from the last few more tense eps. Mineta was hilarious, and I think we can all picture what his room was like.

Tsu is probably my fav character now, she's just too adorable.

But...

Yeah, me too. I was really hoping the anime would rectify that, but I knew it probably wouldn't happen.

Again, if someone could get out with a simple snap of their fingers, then everybody in the entire world has to be extremely retarded.

I don't like to assume people are retarded, so I assume they have some measures in place, and from what we've seen, it seems like they do. If he's going to get out, someone from the outside is going to have to spring him.


I'm also a bit torn about the harshness towards Deku & Co. I mean I do understand that some rules were violated... But what else could they have done? Should they have just left Bakugo where he is? Should they have let All Might get killed through him being unable to go all out? This isn't like the Stain situation.
