Hey everyone and welcome to this week’s Fangirl Favorite! And for this article, whoo goodness do I have a doozy for you guys! That’s right, this week I’m going to be talking about the chapter that has My Hero Academia fans buzzing! When it officially became canon that Dabi is in fact Touya Todoroki. So, let’s get to it eh?
Okay, I can’t be the only one who even though knew this was coming—I mean come on the way he acts to Shoto in the second season and just his look in general, but I digress. But as I was saying even though we knew this was coming, it still took me by surprise. I mean, we knew it was bound to happen, but they could have very well pulled a one-eighty and made Dabi, not Touya. Probably wouldn’t have had such a powerful impact among fans but still. I am really happy that he is in fact Touya. Plus, the looks on the rest of the Todoroki family—especially Endeavors, now that’s definitely going to cause even more turmoil in that family. Hopefully, it won’t cause irreparable damage.
Also, when it was revealed that Touya, in fact, has white hair instead of red surprised me greatly especially seeing that his quirk is so similar to Endeavor’s. But when they showed that scene in the manga where he rinsed off the dye and it revealed it, I thought they did that pretty well. Plus, I can only imagine what this will do to Rei seeing that not only did she believe her son was dead, but he looks the most like her and he is her firstborn.
Talking about his quirk though, it now makes sense how he got his horrible scars. Although I think there is a lot more to it than what was divulged to us. The fact that his quirk burned so fiercely that since he didn’t know how to control it well—assuming because Endeavor refused to teach him, he burnt himself up pretty badly. But on the other hand, when we were shown that he was supposedly dead by a fire that brings up a lot of questions!
All in all, I’m super excited to see how this goes in the end. There are so many different ways this could go, especially since he completely lied about Hawks killing Best Jeanist seeing that he made an amazing comeback in the last few pages of the newest chapter. We’ll just have to wait and see where this rollercoaster journey takes us eh?
