The Depth (THE () DEPTH (デプス) Za Depusu?) is an omake chapter included in the My Hero Academia Official Character Book Ultra Archive by Kohei Horikoshi.


After the end of terms exam, all the students in Class 1-A watch their matches against the teachers. Sero and Kaminari try to get Bakugo to join them in an activity but he tells them off. Bakugo is furious about he and Izuku passed solely due to Izuku performing a last minute punch on All Might and saving him again while he was knocked unconscious. He then hears someone talking to him from behind and yells thinking that it's Izuku. However, it is Ochaco who proclaims she could detect his angry "Bakugo Aura". She notes he's gotten even more angry than before and asks what's wrong, but Bakugo yells at her. She questions why he can't just try being nice to Izuku given their former friendship but Bakugo refuses to befriend a loser like him again.

Ochaco states how cool Bakugo was in their match but loses himself to his anger whenever Izuku is mentioned and says that his anger and hatred of him really is just jealousy towards his growth. She wonders if he fears Izuku for his potential and that Bakugo constantly acts angry and spiteful to him as a way to mask his own insecurities towards him. Bakugo furiously yells at her and he does the same to Izuku when he shows up to class.

Later in Midnight's class, Ochaco thinks to herself that she is surprised she said all that to Bakugo while Bakugo himself is angry over what Ochaco said to him.
