Uchiyama Kouki (Shigaraki Tomura)
I braggedwas bigmouthed at the interview conducted at the beginning of MHA anime by saying, “I will try my best to defeat all the heroes, so please support ‘Villain’ side as well”, but I did not expect to see such athe large-scale story, which mainly picks up the Villains.
Finally, the secret of Shigaraki will be revealed. I was shocked to learn that his past was so fierce, and I felt pain while performing, but I accomplished.
Unprecedented MHA now begins so this is must-see for current MHA fans, and it will also be wonderfull also if you gwould get interested in the series from this abnormal chapter. I want as many people to watch this chapter.
