My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers have surfaced on the internet, bringing confirmation of Toya Todoroki, a.k.a. the villain Dabi’s end. Chapter 388 showed the Todoroki family reuniting as Rei went to Endeavor and Toya’s location to stop her son, with Natsuo and Fuyumi following her.

Endeavor had accepted and even hoped to die with Toya, in order to atone for the neglect he had subjected his eldest son to, but his wife and other children began fighting back, unwilling to let go of another member from their broken family. Fans feared that the entire family will perish from either the explosion or from the intense heat of Toya’s flames, but Chapter 389 spoilers suggest that Rei, Natsuo, Fuyumi, and Endeavor might survive in the end.

My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers 

My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers reveal the title of the upcoming chapter to be “Relief and Prayers,” featuring Himiko Toga and Ochaco Uraraka on the cover page. The raw scans begin with the Todoroki family somewhat decreasing the impact of the explosion but failing to negate it completely. The police at headquarters analyze the data and panic, remarking that while the temperature has stopped rising as fast, the heat itself has not decreased significantly.

At the epicenter of the explosion, Rei, Natsuo, and Fuyumi try to shield themselves during a wall of ice, while Endeavor continues to hold on to his son. Toya seems to regain a semblance of clarity during his dying moments, and sees his family finally acknowledging his presence. Seeing his family looking at him, the eldest Todoroki wonders why it didn’t happen sooner despite it being so easy, and the My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers show his visage shattering into pieces, presumably symbolizing his death.

The raw scans show Ochaco locked in combat with Toga in her Twice form, before transitioning to show the heat from the explosion begins destroying the Twice clones in Gunga. Pro hero Tiger urges the heroes to evacuate quickly, with student heroes like Tetsutetsu and Kendo running for their lives as well. The civilians sit atop the U.A. robots, with the children watching the explosion on a tablet. A reporter circles overhead, documenting the terrifying scene, while many begin to pray.

My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers end with a kid exclaiming that they still have “Fire Peepee Man,” referring to Shoto’s Quirk from his Provisional Hero remedial classes. The chapter ends with Iida and Shoto flying towards Gunga at an unbelievable speed, using ice to create a streamlined, aircraft-like structure, and show Shoto activating Phosphor as the ice begins to break apart.

Concluding thoughts

My Hero Academia Chapter 389 leaked spoilers suggest that Shoto will be the one to pull the brakes on his older brother, and save his family. At this point, Toya’s death is inevitable, since his body will not sustain itself once his adrenaline rush dies down.

But Shoto’s interference might ensure the survival for the rest of the family, and guarantee the safety of the escaping civilians and heroes nearby. The short 11-page chapter also foreshadows that Chapter 390 will shift the focus to Toga and Ochaco, whose confrontation has been set up from their first meeting in Season 3 of the My Hero Academia anime.
