Author's Notes

It's the tournament I've wanted to try doing since I was little! When I finally took the plunge, it was a truly difficult event.

Volume Summary

It's the final match of the first tournament. Todoroki is a worthy opponent, but Uraraka especially is full to the brim with fighting spirit. I want the both of them to display their best efforts. We are all friends and rivals! And I, too, need to put up a fight that won't shame the name of heroics, just like my brother! Plus Ultra!
