The interwoven fates of AFO and OFA are tangled more than we ever imagined. A very beautiful emotionally driven chapter of My Hero Academia (MHA 287) has captured the hearts and dazzled the minds of readers. The realm of One for All gives us some answers to the previously unknown history of these pass down quirks. It is so good to know that quirks manifest in terms of entity and aren’t just hollow power-ups. The next conflict in the chapter was All for One mocking the choice of Deku as a successor of OFA but Nana Shimura and OFA users back him up. I loved the chapter. My Hero Academia (MHA) Chapter 288 will be another cracker filled with harrowing questions on what it means to be a Hero. In this post, we will talk about MHA 288 spoilers, release date, raw scan and predictions.

Chapter 287 Recap
The One for All realm has many secrets to be uncovered. Also, the insidious form of AFO sticking out of Shigaraki was scary! It is clear that Shigaraki is being manipulated emotionally by AFO even though he thinks he is in control. We also have a completely new side to quirks. The genetic component of quirks will be an important part of discussion in the future.
At the start of the chapter, we see Nana Shimura lamenting meeting AFO again. AFO enrages Tomura that Nana is his grandmother as well as dead. AFO then states that all the quirks he had stolen have consciousness of the people in them. This individuality of the person remains within a quirk as stated by Doctor when he meets AFO.
There is a full conversation of hate and manipulation when AFO’s younger brother, the first user of OFA arrives. He protects Deku from the growing rage of Tomura that was affecting the will of OFA. The conversation shifts to AFO saying that Deku is unfit to carry such power. He has seen what drives Tomura and Deku will never be able to surpass that.
The first user defends Deku and tells AFO that Deku as a hero lives to protect others. He was in a rage because he felt helpless to protect that this sentiment can never be understood by a manipulator. OFA users all stand behind Deku and will follow him towards failure if that is the result. Tomura was unable to acquire OFA from Deku as AFO tells him that his body is not perfect and he needs to retreat. Deku pleads to Shigaraki to give up and stop moving.
Meanwhile, Gigantomachia rampages towards Shiggy with the League as Dabi looks excited to crush down Heroes & especially Endeavor.
My Hero Academia (MHA) Chapter 288 Spoilers and Predictions
As you see from the above summary that the stakes in Hero Academia have been raised once more. As the arc seems to be reaching its climax, what should we expect? Shigaraki is told to retreat and Gigantomachia is unstoppable. Heroes have been dealt with too many losses. Both sides need to regroup and take some time to recover and this arc will be a potentially a tie. MHA 288 spoilers are currently not out.
