your dark-past kiri post killed me thanks. like, i dont think bakugou feels even a little bit bad about telling deku to kill himself (yet) ...but... if he were to find out kirishima tried to commit suicide? that would turn on its head and he absolutely would regret it. because damn. kiri is one of his closest (only) friends and he tried to do THAT?? he'd never say anything like it again. just another turn on bakugous journey to being a pleasant person.
Oops, sorry for killing you. I’m going to leave the country because I don’t want to be convicted of manslaughter. It’s cool receiving an ask from the dead, even if it is from one of my victims. How’s heaven?
Bakugou inciting suicide is a SERIOUS deal. I think it’s the worst thing he’s ever said to Midoriya in the entire series. That’s what made manga readers and anime watchers really start hating Bakugou, and it almost made him seem irredeemable. Telling someone to kill themselves is one of the worst things a bully can say to their victims. It’s absolutely inexcusable. The series brushes that comment off, and it hasn’t been mentioned since.
I think if that moment were brought up again and become a huge slap in the face to Bakugou, that would be really cool. Imagine Bakugou hearing his close friend Kirishima attempted suicide in middle school because he felt so weak. That would be a huge wake up call to Bakugou and make him think about what he done when he bullied Midoriya all these years. It would be great character development.
Although, I don’t expect Bakugou to be a pleasant person, even by the end of the series. He’s still going to be a rude asshole, and he’ll still be hotblooded. It’s part of his charm. However, he will get better and most likely will get some self-reflection. I hope Bakugou can learn how to have more of heroic spirit and care for someone else’s well-being.
