The UA Sports Festival is equivalent to the Olympics in Japan, and our heroes aren’t going to miss a chance to show off their talents! After winning the preliminary obstacle race, Midoriya now has the most points as he moves on to the cavalry battle. Unfortunately, this only makes him a target. Planning out his team, Midoriya and his friends still manage to pull off a passing score to move on to the individual matches.

The fourth volume was not as exciting as the previous two since it was solely focused on the Calvary battle. A showdown did occur between Todoroki and Midoriya, but this is only preliminary to their match in the next volume. It did have a focus on Tenya Iida, who also declared war against Midoriya in the battle, but only as a means to challenge himself rather than an unfriendly gesture. It was a good read, but not as interesting as the previous volumes.

*Contains mild violence and mild language
