My hero university dropped some pretty harsh news about Izuku Midoriya’s best hero tech with the latest chapter in the series! It’s been a tough road for Izuku Midoriya since the Paranormal Liberation Front war, and even more so during the series’ final act as he performed a short vigilante stint that destroyed him both physically and mentally. After regaining his sense of his classmates, Izuku is now preparing for the next phase of the battle and needs some repairs to his equipment. Unfortunately, it looks like this will no longer be possible.

Unfortunately, based on the appearance of his gear, he will need replacement or even repairs for the battle ahead. Following a reunion with Support Course fan favorite Mei Hatsume in the previous chapter, it was sadly revealed that the compression bands around her arms are basically one-of-a-kind technology from abroad. This means that repairing or creating something that looks like it is next to impossible, even for someone as skilled as Hatsume. Izuku therefore embarks on the final battle without serious equipment.

Chapter 339 of the series picks up right after Izuku Midoriya and Tenya Iida are reunited with Hatsume, and Izuku reveals that the state of his Mid-Gauntlets is fundamentally ruined beyond comprehension. He asks Hatsume for her help fixing them, but she confirms that she can’t do it. She would need to recreate them from scratch due to the damage they took, and without the proper components, she couldn’t craft them exactly. It is then revealed that Hatsume is making something close to the same level of quantity instead.

She does something like them but couldn’t do it exactly the same way as before. Fortunately, even though Hatsume couldn’t recreate Izuku’s best tech, she was still able to help him with something similar. Now he’s one step closer to full preparation for the all-out war between heroes and villains that continues as the series continues. It is simply a question of seeing if it will be sufficiently equipped or not for the future.
