thank you so much for being apart of my life. you mean the absolute world to me and i’m so glad you’ve stuck around for so long. i’m sorry that sometimes i’m not a great friend to you n i’m sorry for all the times i’ve done wrong. i’m incredibly happy that you’ve stayed my best friend, even when i’m unbearable. i don’t know what i’d do if you weren’t in my life. i keep telling you this, but if you asked me to i would find a way to fling myself into the sun for you. you’re such a beautiful and fantastic person n i am so Blessed to be your friend. every time i hear you laugh, i am reminded that there are reasons to live. your smile is able to make my terrible mood completely flip. just being in your presence can cheer me up. you are so full of love and you do so much for all of us. n ur also so heckin cute. i really don’t know how you do it. stop being so cute wtf. you are the most amazing bean. i’m so glad i’ve gotten to experience so many things with you. i love the adventures we’ve gone on and the memories that come with them. idk how you feel about it but you are my soulmate. 100%. we were meant to be apart of each others lives. n if you don’t agree this might be a lil embarrassing for me. i know i’m being a Soft Bitch but sometimes i need to be sappy to remind you that how much you mean to me. instead of writing a book on what i love about you, i’ll chill out.
i love you so much, ben! i hope your 18th birthday was a fantastic one!
Other manga readers are aware that one of the changes made in the anime adaptation was how they set up each match one at a time, instead of all of them happening simultaneously, so in the manga, there was a sense of pressure exerted onto the students when they learned that their other classmates completed the test ahead of them. In the manga, the first one to finish was team Todo-Momo, followed by Team Baku-Deku, so Deku still ended up making commentaries with Recovery Girl much like in the anime, so there weren’t any major changes, maybe aside from Uraraka (& Tsuyu?) who stood beside him and watched from the screens.
However, when I was re-reading the manga…I realized there was one missed opportunity:
Todoroki and Yaoyorozu marveling at a sleeping Bakugou in the school clinic (and then one-by-one other classmates start flooding the room and quietly watching him too lmao)
“Also, we don’t need another party member. I’m our paladin, Will’s our cleric, Dustin’s our bard, Lucas is our ranger, and El’s our mage!” “Well, I could be your zoomer!” “That’s not even a real thing.” “It could be.”
