Boku no Hero Academia chapter 244 was quick to the point this week, which left us a bit confused. Starting from the beginning, our trainees were forced to follow behind Endeavor as he rushed off to stop the villain at large. We learn this older villain controlled glass and was aiming to cause some disturbance. Despite his rather powerful ability, Endeavor wastes no time in showing our villain a lesson in how hot his fire can be. Deku, Shoto and Bakugo, in the meantime, are forced to take down the old man’s underlings but don’t get to deal the finishing blows when Hawks appears and takes them down himself. An annoyed Endeavor tears into Hawks for not announcing his arrival, but Hawks explains he was “just simply in the area.” Hawks’ main reason for arriving though was to explain the book—Meta Liberation War—the old man was holding and why it was so important. However, what seems like pointless banter has a hidden meaning and Hawks seems to hope our current number one hero understands his hidden phrase. Why does this phrase “A world where we’ve got time to kill” matter so greatly? Answers are possibly awaiting in the next chapter but we will say, this week’s Boku no Hero Academia felt a bit flat. Let us explain why you should absolutely read chapter 244 and why you can also skip it if you feel the need to do so!
1. Endeavor is Truly Fire!
While All Might was indeed worthy of the number one hero title, Endeavor makes sure the world knows he deserves this title now. Endeavor makes quick work of the glass villain and the situation is seemingly quickly resolved. Now let’s hope Endeavor is smart enough to understand Hawks’ message hidden behind that simple phrase explained in this chapter’s end.
1. The Phrase and Nothing Else
Let’s face it, folks; this whole chapter seems geared to only one important moment…Hawks’ message. The fight was over quickly and even our younger heroes in training didn’t get much spotlight. The whole chapter ends up being only relevant when Hawks delivers his message and we see him pray Endeavor understands its hidden meaning. Needless to say, chapter 244 doesn’t do much to really warrant reading overall and that is a shame when most chapters never have this problem.
This week’s Boku no Hero Academia chapter was overall a letdown, if we’re being honest. Endeavor did get some time to show off his super-hot fire—which was a great panel—but the only real moment worthwhile came at the very end. Hawks continues to play the spy and hopefully his secret message to our number one hero doesn’t end in vain. What does this message hold for our heroes in general? Time will tell but for now we will have to wait. Do you think you know Hawks’ message to Endeavor and what it entails? Comment below with your thoughts as we love to hear from you readers out there!
