    Yes of course, that's why I said you're right and recognized the flaw in my reasoning. I guess I'm just a little salty that the scenario we all saw coming became reality just like that. So I feel it was a bit cheap, even if that's probably unfair towards Horikoshi.

    Yeah, you and Vongola King made the same point but to me it isn't all that cheap because it is the logical outcome of the events plus of what Mirio's character was built on from even before the hideout raid started.

    There is nothing wrong with being predictable. All Might dying to AFO was predictable, and even if it had happened, it still wouldn't have felt cheap or bad. We ended up getting something different, but both outcomes were good. Mirio's entire purpose was for him to be this ideal Deku can't stack up too, not yet at least. Except Horikoshi didn't just make him a plot device, he gave him his own character arc and something he needed to overcome as well.

    His true purpose of being a foil to Deku is now ready to start. Deku was born quirkless, but due this his qualities he was given the most powerful of quirks. Mirio was born with a quirk, but due his qualities they were taken away. Mirio start line his him trying to be a Hero without a quirk, the Journey that Deku was on before he got blessed.

    As I said, it's the saltiness. This is the perfect (and only) situation a hero would actually sacrifice himself. With no time to think etc.
    It's just...Mirio's so OP, he could have done something in that situation -> this is what something deep inside me keeps whisperin :lmao
    But nah, case closed.

    If you go back and look at my posts, I think I actually said and condoned Mirio still staying relevant due to his training and experience.

    They didn't want to get in the line of fire, man. I had an inkling that the opinions weren't as lopsided as the now vocal minority would have people believe. It's why I made sure to make this an anonymous poll.

    Still, I didn't think it was actually gonna turn out like this. :hmm

    Sorta ironic how the people who voted against Mirios self sacrifice also sacrificed Vongola King for their own protection

    No one, just saying this situation is nearly identical to that. All Might lost all his power protecting the one girl in the rubble during his AFO.

    Not even close, that girl was going to die.

    Eri wasn't, Mirio's actions as they where depicted actually increased the danger for her.

    But allmight had the capacity to win after taking the hit. Not saying mirio was totes wrong, but the comparison is off either way.

    That depends if you think the shot wouldn't have killed her or seriously injured her. It may have been a dart, but it was still being shot out of a pistol, I could probably science it up, but its going to be just as lethal as a actual bullet from kinetic energy alone.

    Because All Might did finish doesn't mean it was the right call in the heat of the moment. If your scope for judging what should have been done is after the fact, then what ever, no one cares about after the fact because its extremely easy to be captain hindsight.

    I doubt that because
    -Is made for dermal intake so it's not supposed to pierce, it makes no sense for the round to be deadly
    -IRL there's non lethal ammo like that, being shot from a real weapon doesn't really matters, is all in the kind of ammo you use.

    Non lethal ammo can still kill a child, aka rubber bullets. Even if not designed to penetrate skin, the trauma caused by the kinetic impact can be devastating to a child. There is reports as of last year showing rubber bullets killing a 11 year old, and the person we are talking about is significantly younger.

    In this case the dart is meant to penetrate skin and is carrying all the kinetic force that the rubber bullets do. Don't compare what happened to kirishima and Suneater to what would happen if a small child got shot.

    Hindsight isn't needed. We KNEW that wasn't a killing or incapacitating blow that AFO was launching. All Might falling there, or completely losing his power would have been jarring as fuck for the reader.

    That's vastly different from Mirio. We KNEW that Mirio would not finish the fight if he took that bullet. We KNEW Mirio would not save Eri if he took that bullet. It's a definite outcome (though, for a second, I thought Mirio was gonna beat all odds :pek).

    The two instances have the barest similarity, a hero saving someone (though All Might was saving FAR MORE than just that girl), but the context in which each happened is very different for the reader. That's why not one reader questioned All Might.

    some massive false equivalence going around here.

    also i really don't understand why you keep forcing all might comparisons, xiammes. like the whole cheap predictability thing.
