I don't know if I like what the manga is doing with the eri story wise right now. Like, after the new chapter, if eri's quirk ends up doing what I think it does, it will probably be a huge loss for the manga story wise. (I love mirio and nighteye, but in this situation, to get them back this way, would probably feel like a huge cop out)

Ah, can’t say you find me on your side on this, anon - generally I’m a positive person! And I like bnha because it’s a positive story! So, yeah, if Eri’s gonna fix it and avoid deaths and permanent damages all around I’m not gonna mind it one bit. I understand your position on this tho, and I’m pretty sure you’re not alone on it. I guess it’s about what you’re looking for in a story, and what the point the story means to bring across is to begin with - you say that having an all around positive outcome to this arc is gonna be a loss for the manga, but bnha isn’t snk. It’s not Tokyo Ghoul, or D.Gray-man, or any other story made to drive across the point that life is sad and sad things happen and you just gotta deal with it as best as you can. The general point of HeroAca, since the very beginning, is that luck exists! Things can turn out for the best! Look at it, our protagonist didn’t even have a quirk and now he’s got the best one out there. Literally became the successor to the greatest hero alive without doing anything aside from being a nice guy

I mean. I get why you’d wish for a… more real story, I guess. I get that you might like the angst and the realness of life being shitty and bad things happening and all that jazz. But that’s never been bnha’s point? Since the very start? Deku’s whole arc is turning into a fight to show you that you should never lose hope and that even set futures can still be rewritten - and, about that, there’s also how big part of this arc is still about Nighteye and what he saw in All Might’s future, and about Deku wanting to prove that he doesn’t have to die, so a girl that can literally rewind said future to make it go some other way? That’s exactly what you need to counter Nighteye’s quirk. Deku might talk about twisting fate all he wants, but considering how Nighteye’s quirk works and how precise and definitive it is, without something that can make what Nighteye saw happen just to bring it back and change it there was no way Deku could have done much.

As I said, I get why you’d be disappointed in the possibility of a total fix-it, but as far as bnha’s plot goes I don’t think the story’s gonna lose anything with simply keeping up the positive-to-a-naive-point look on life it has always had, if that’s what it decides to do. You might end up finding the story less good then you’d been expecting, but that’s because you were seeing bnha as a genre it has never even tried to be. This is still a story in which at some point holding hands saved the day, after all haha

Normally I'd hedge our bets and say this will last for a week or two to gain drama and with it momentum, but given there's already a huge amount of attention, bigger than what we saw in March, I wonder if they would be wiser to do it tomorrow so that they don't lose that attention on such a wide scale. Depends on their plans (as always), so no way of making good guesses, but I'm feeling sooner rather than later. Also they probably don't want to give Simon, the Js, etc time to maneuver.

I agree that sooner would be better, for a number of reasons. I think if they’re moving ahead now they know that Simon, etc. can’t do anything to change anything anymore. So, just execute the plan as efficiently as possible.

I start my second semester of college tomorrow... I made one friend last semester and she is three years older than me, therefore she's now finished with college so I won't see her there anymore. Any advice on making new friends? :)

I’ll tell you the truth that movies/your parents/anyone not in college doesn’t really get. YOU PROBABLY WILL NOT MAKE FRIENDS IN YOUR CLASSES. People there are on all tracks of life and they’re probably not looking for new buddies.
Soooo join clubs. Go to social gatherings. Make friends at work. Maybe your school is different from mine, but that’s how I had to do it.
