Roaring Sports Festival (うなれ (たい) (いく) (さい) Unare Taiikusai?) is the twenty-third chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.

Summary

All Might tells Izuku that he wants him to tell the world at the U.A. Sports Festival that he is the new generation's "All Might". However, Izuku is skeptical about fulfilling All Might's request. All Might tells Izuku to think about it and that he won't force Izuku to do it. He then asks Izuku not to forget how he felt at the Takoba Municipal Beach Park.

After school has finished, Class 1-A tries to leave their homeroom, but they find that the exit to the classroom is blocked and crowded by many students. Katsuki says that the other classes are scoping the class that was victorious against the villains the other day before the big event. Katsuki tries to threaten the other classes to back away, but one of the students says that many students in the General Department like himself can be transferred to the Department of Heroics based on the results of the U.A. Sports Festival and the reverse is also possible. The student then says to consider his words as a declaration of war. A student from Class 1-B loudly says that he came to see the class that defeated villains and remarks on their arrogance. He then yells at Class 1-A to not embarrass them at the Sports Festival. Izuku starts to realize that many other people are striving to become great heroes and it's not just him who wants to become a great hero.

During the two weeks, Class 1-A train individually to prepare themselves for the upcoming Sports Festival.

Two weeks have passed and day of the U.A. Sports Festival has finally arrived. Security has been beefed up heavily and the Sports Festival is being broadcast live. In the Class 1-A waiting room. Shoto Todoroki approaches Izuku and tells him he is far stronger than him and despite knowing that fact he still plans to defeat him. Izuku admits that Shoto is far stronger than him but says that everyone, including the students from the other departments, is giving it their all to aim for the top and declares to Shoto that he is going to give it his all as well, which intrigues Shoto.

Class 1-A walks out to the Freshmen Stage. The U.A. Sports Festival has now begun.
