So BNHA Smash! chapter 92 is ABSOLUTE GOLD.
NO. FOR REAL.
So it’s a Bakugou-centered chapter this time, and the premise is this: Bakugou had been attacked by a villain on the way to school and was affected by the Quirk “Good Face”. What this Quirk does is that it “corrects” his behavior by turning him into a SHOUJO MANGA MALE PROTAGONIST.
Any time he tries to scowl or glare? He gets a “bishounen” face and shoujo manga sparkles.
Any time he tries to curse? He autocorrects to a ridiculous catchphrase with hilarious poses.
And when he actually tries to outright threaten somebody? HE ENDS UP AGGRESSIVELY FLIRTING. WITH EVERYONE.
And the best part? Bakugou is COMPLETELY AWARE OF WHAT HE’S DOING AND HE STILL CAN’T CONTROL IT.
Other highlights include:
- Sero and Kaminari screaming (mockingly) like fangirls.
“KYAAA! PLEASE DYE ME IN YOUR COLORS, KATSUKI-SAMA~~!!”
- Bakugou accidentally flirting with All Might, who is terrified until Deku explains everything. (Bonus: Bakugou blushing furiously when he returns to his senses).
- Bakugou flirting with Kirishima (WHO FLIRTS BACK) during a class training exercise in which Bakugou is supposed to play the part of the hostage (tied up) and Kirishima is the villain.
Bakugou: “No matter how long you keep me bound, you’ll never bind my heart.”
Kirishima: “Interesting! It’s a challenge! Let’s see whose heart will give in first!”
Iida (the rescuing hero): “Um, what?”
Bakugou (acting villain) flirting with Yaoyorozu (acting hostage), who freaks out so badly that she accidentally BASHES HIS FACE IN. Cue Jirou (acting hero) walking in to find Bakugou laying in a puddle of blood at Yaomomo’s feet.
- THE HERO BAKUGOU RESCUING (and lowkey flirting with) THE HOSTAGE MIDORIYA FROM THE VILLAIN TODOROKI WITH A PRINCESS CARRY HOLY SHIT IS THIS REAL.
… But then he chokes up blood at the cheesy stuff he was saying to Midoriya and, um…
At the very least, he DOES look a bit sorry for what he did afterwards.
And it ends with Iida and Mineta holding back waves of fangirls Bakugou gained through the day from the other classes. Bakugou TRIES to yell at them to go away, only for the “Good Face” quirk to activate to flirt with them AGAIN.
I MIGHT actually try to translate this now. It’s too good to pass up.
