School Festival ( (ぶん) () (さい) Bunkasai?) is the one hundred and sixty-ninth chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga.


At Class 1-A's Heights Alliance, Mina Ashido is showing off her dance moves, which impresses some of her classmates. Interested, Izuku Midoriya decides to learn some dance moves from Mina. Denki Kaminari talks to Kyoka Jiro about her music themed room, which Kyoka shyly asks Denki to stop commenting on it.

Later in the classroom, Shota Aizawa announces that U.A. High School will be having a school festival and explains that the festival is sponsored by the other departments such as the General Department. However, Shota points out that part of the festival will be within U.A. and tells Class 1-A to pick out a program to perform at the festival. Tenya Iida asks ideas from Class 1-A; many of them give creative ideas such as Denki's maid cafe or Ochaco Uraraka's mochi shop. Soon, Class 1-A reaches many ideas. Before class ends, Shota tells Class 1-A to make a decision by tomorrow otherwise the class will be doing a public lecture.

Back at Heights Alliance, Tenya believes that Class 1-A should do a program where everyone can blow off steam. Mina suggests dancing, to which Shoto Todoroki unexpectedly agrees and goes on to say that relieving stress where everyone can have fun is a great idea, which he got from the Provisional Hero License training. Mina offers to teach Class 1-A some dance moves while Minoru Mineta suggests that dancing requires music, which Toru Hagakure suggests Kyoka for the task. Though, Kyoka believes that music has nothing to do with heroism and is simply just a hobby. Denki thinks playing with instruments, however, is great and Koji Koda believes that playing music can help put smiles on people's faces. Encouraged by her peers, Kyoka decides to help Class 1-A with music. All of them agreeing with dance and music, Class 1-A's school festival program will be a live performance and dance with party space.

Meanwhile on the laptop monitor, the next video that will play features a new villain.
