i don't understand why izuku was so upset at the end could you explain; in sorry i'm kinda dumb haha
You’re not dumb, anon! There’s a lot
happening in the manga right now, especially emotions-wise, and I’m not sure if
I got it completely right, either. But I will try to explain how I interpreted
First of all, there is Izuku’s
rather, uh “bumpy” start into his internship. He was confronted with Nighteye,
All Might’s sidekick he didn’t even know about. He must have been nervous
enough about that meeting, but to top it off, Nighteye also threw at his face
that Mirio had been All Might’s
supposed successor, and that he won’t acknowledge Izuku.
So there are already multiple things
going on inside Izuku’s mind there, just from that. There is a sidekick he
didn’t know about – why did All Might not tell him? Why did he not want to let
Izuku meet Nighteye? What had happened between them? I’m sure Izuku was
worrying about that since hearing about Nighteye for the first time.
Then, there’s the fact that Izuku
had always a lot of insecurity when it came to himself. He had been quirkless,
he is still a bit of a crybaby, he doesn’t have much experience… hearing that
Mirio, who is so strong and experienced had been supposed to become the
successor and that Izuku just was lucky to be the first out of the two of them
to meet All Might must have been a hard hit and let some of his old
insecurities resurface. And Nighteye, who knows All Might quite well, is sure
that Mirio would have been a better choice. And even worse, All Might had known about Mirio, but never told Izuku about
it, not even when Izuku had already met Mirio. So Izuku perhaps worries why All
Might still keeps so many secrets from him. (And, just to mention – All Might
said that he met Izuku first and gave him his quirk before he could give it to
Mirio. He didn’t say that he himself
thinks that Izuku was the better choice – I’m sure that hurts a bit, too.)
On top of that, Izuku
only now seems to start to understand the state of body and mind (but
especially the state of mind) All Might had been in six years ago, and is in
even now. When the two of them met for the first time, Toshinori was fairly
collected about his state – “I have a large scar, miss a few organs, can be a
hero for only three hours, there you go, that’s it”. He seemed to have to come
to terms with it, having settled into
this life he was living now, after his injury.
Izuku realizes now that this is not the truth. Six years ago, All
Might was despairing over the fact that he no longer could be a hero, could no
longer protect society. He was ready to fling himself – broken and beat as he
was – into the fight again and again and again, endangering his very life (and
his legacy) just to keep going and doing his job. He was refusing to face
reality – to face the fact that he couldn’t be the Number One and a pillar
anymore. He still felt responsibility for the world. And he does even now, and
Izuku is starting to realize that. All Might is still trying to keep up the façade
of him being stronger than he really is, just so he won’t disappoint those who
believe in him. He is still doing training, as if he is going to fight against
villains again anytime.
Izuku is now confronted by the fact
that his idol, his mentor, has taken more psychological damage than physical
one, and he never noticed before.
And in the end, they didn’t really
settle things. All Might rushed his story out and then continued his jogging,
unable to face Izuku and gauge his reaction. Izuku, probably, still has things
he wants to say and know, but he doesn’t dare to ask, doesn’t know how to. He
is left standing there, wanting to question, wanting to help his mentor, but he
is not given the possibility to do so. He is helpless.
Phew. That got out of hand, I’m
sorry! XD But yeah, that’s how I interpreted Izuku being upset.
OKAY I’ve been convinced to post this by friends BUT BUT BUT I have a villain theory about our fave Tintin look-a-like, Mirio. Manga spoilers (from chap 121 onwards) ahead so avoid if you’re not caught up!
Imagine Mirio being told that All Might himself wants to talk to him. “Togata, All Might is requesting to speak with you.” And everyone in his class is like “oh. Wow!” “All Might wants to talk to Mirio!” “Togata-kun, you’re so lucky!” “How awesome, huh, Togata!” “SO COOL!” Everyone is turning and looking at Mirio, happy that their classmate gets to meet his idol. They see this as Mirio getting recognized for his outstanding hard work in controlling his quirk and making it his own. And then there is Mirio, sitting in his seat, frozen, smile still on his face. Mirio is looking straight ahead and not moving. Everyone is confused because Mirio is suddenly speechless.
Their homeroom teacher calls him. “Togata, head over to the Nap Room when you’re done collecting yourself.” And a few seconds pass and then Mirio gets up, and he’s rubbing the back of his head sheepishly and laughing, his cheeks have a slight pink tint. “HAHAHA. I WONDER WHY ALL MIGHT WOULD WANT TO SPEAK TO ME!? HAHA! WELL I GUESS I’M OFF!” Mirio is ecstatic and takes him a while to control his giddiness.
