Summary of Chapter 387

My Hero Academia Chapter 387 begins with Geten telling Mr. Compress about the downfall of the Himura family trying to keep their blood pure, also revealing that he is a Himura. Eventually, the main Himura family was forced to sell their children into arranged marriages. Based on the practices of his extended family, Geten theorizes that the Quirks have intermingled and progressed, and that some descendants of the Himura family may unknowingly possess latent abilities.

The chapter then moves to the Gunga Battleground, where Endeavor is briefed on Dabi’s current stats. Despite heavy injuries, he confronts Dabi, but can only see a young Toya looking for congratulations. Endeavor is then unable to fight and takes numerous punches, until Dabi gets close enough to Endeavor for him to realize that the villain has inexplicably awakened his mother Rei’s Quirk, Frost.

Endeavor’s life then flashes before him and he acknowledges his wrongs, explaining that he wanted to atone for his and Dabi’s sins. Endeavor hugs Dabi and uses his son’s flames to soar into the sky. Just as Endeavor seems ready to die with his son, Rei suddenly appears out of nowhere, using her Quirk to cool Dabi’s flames, and the number ends.

What awaits us

Sadly, My Hero Academia Chapter 388 is likely to change perspective once again, but luckily it will to return to All Might vs. All For One. If this chapter were to take readers to another event in the series, fans might consider it a major mistake on the part of author and illustrator Kohei Horikoshi.

If My Hero Academia Chapter 388 does indeed return to the fight between All Might and All For One, fans can expect the next issue to focus exclusively on this fight. The first few pages will likely feature All Might’s fully transformed mech-suit, while later panels will focus on him taking advantage of All For One. The issue will likely end with an ominous return from All For One.
