The manga is set to go on a one-week hiatus as fans wait for the new arc. But the current arc is far from over. "My Hero Academia" Chapter 297 will continue to deal with the aftermath.

Twitter user Atsushi shared a short preview for "My Hero Academia" Chapter 297 hinting at All For One's resurrection and the heroes dealing with the losses.

"The worst is not over yet," the preview read, as tweeted by Atsushi.

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a little longer as "My Hero Academia" Chapter 297 is postponed to Jan. 17, Manga Plus confirmed.

The previous chapter starts with the heroes, villains and civilians dealing with the repercussions of the carnage. The survivors at the frontline and those who rushed to ground zero join forces to stop Shigaraki from escaping.

Meanwhile, the Near High-Ends are ordered to team up and initiate disruption strategies. As they distract the heroes, three Near High-Ends are put down.

Sadly, seven of them – Shigaraki and a few villains, manage to escape. Gigantomachia and Mr. Compress are not so lucky as the heroes arrest the two villains.

At Gunga Mountain Villa, Reten, Trumpet and other Paranormal Liberation Front members are captured. The heroes manage to arrest 16,929 individuals. However, 132 members manage to flee after Gigantomachia's rampage. In the chapter, it is revealed that apart from the members, the organization's bases also took a hit. Moreover, the Paranormal Liberation Front's sympathizers are taken into custody for questioning.

The second half of the chapter revolves around the mental state of the heroes and civilians as they try to make sense of the situation. One of the panels shows a hero almost giving up as he looks at the ruins. He says it is too much for him and wants to quit.

Elsewhere, Yaomomo, Mina and Kirishima are crying after learning about Midnight's demise. The panel shifts to the narrator explaining how Shigaraki truly died and his rebirth was interrupted the moment the apparatus was destroyed.

Shigaraki's pure hatred and his dreams are responsible for his revival. Moreover, his singular obsession led to countless deaths.
