The Pursuit Is On ( () () われる () Tate Owareru Mi?) is the twenty-sixth chapter of Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.


The Obstacle Race is in its final stage; the Land Mine Field. Izuku has blast himself ahead of the lead, overtaking them and putting himself in the lead. Katsuki and Shoto immediately run to catch up to Izuku and almost overtake him. However, Izuku uses the metal sheet and blows dust into them, forcing them to stop. Izuku runs ahead to the finish line and crosses it, placing first, much to All Might and Izuku's happiness. Shoto crosses the finish line, placing second and Katsuki crosses the finish line, placing third. Soon, the other students cross the finish line.

Midnight states that the 42 students at the top have earned the right to advance while the other students fail to advance. Midnight announces the second event of the Sports Festival: The Human Cavalry Battle. The top 42 students each form a team of 2-4 for this event and earn points by grabbing headbands from the other teams. The number of points each student is worth is dependent of their placement in the Obstacle Race. However, Izuku, who placed 1st, is an exception to the points rule and is instead worth 10 million points, which horrifies Izuku.
