Katsuki is on the left wearing his Hero costume and is glaring at Izuku; Izuku is on the right wearing his hero costume, glaring at Katsuki as well. Both characters are divided by the black paint rushing down the middle of the cover.

All Might, in his true form, is featured on the spine over a red background, wearing a yellow suit. The volume illustration features Ochaco and Tsuyu in their hero costumes, posing together. Behind them, Izuku watches, in his school uniform. The back cover depicts Thirteen and Backdraft.

Author's Notes

I like drawing hands. I give them a lot of care because, besides the face, I think that hands are the body part most capable of showing expression and character. On the flip side, drawing hands that aren't expressive is especially tough because there's nothing to go on. For that reason, there's one character in this volume who's especially difficult and who had me on the verge of tears every week. It makes me resent myself. It'll be plenty obvious to any reader which character I'm referring to, so go ahead. Read on.

Volume Summary

Getting into U.A. High School was difficult enough, but it was only the beginning of Izuku’s long road toward becoming a superhero. The new students all have amazing powers, and although Izuku has inherited All Might’s abilities, he can barely control them. What’s more, the first-year students are told they will have to compete just to avoid being expelled!
