Smile, Prince of Nonsense Land! ( (わら) え!ナンセンス (かい) のプリンス Warae! Nansensu-kai no Purinsu?) is the thirty-second chapter of Kohei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia.

Summary

Before Midnight can commence the drawing to determine the pairings for the tournament event, Mashirao requests withdrawal from the event, saying that his participation in the Human Cavalry Battle was done by being manipulated and insinuates that it was because of Hitoshi's Quirk. Mashirao says that he understands that the tournament event is a rare opportunity and that walking away would be foolish, but while everyone was giving their best on their own, he wasn't able to give his best due to being manipulated. Toru and Mina try to persuade him to reconsider, but Mashirao replies that he is saving his dignity. Nirengeki Shoda from Class 1-B also requests to resign, feeling that he too doesn't deserve to participate in the tournament event for the same reason. Midnight, liking their reasoning for resignation, accepts their withdrawal from the tournament event. Midnight then says that the open slots will be filled in by the team that placed fifth: Team Kendo, but Team Kendo decides to give the opportunity to Team Tetsutetsu, much to Tetsutetsu's happiness. Midnight then announces that Tetsutetsu and Ibara will be replacing Mashirao and Shoda. After the drawing takes place, Midnight announces the pairings for the tournament event. Izuku sees that his opponent will be Hitoshi Shinso. Hitoshi approaches Izuku, asking him a question, but Mashirao stops Izuku from responding.

The Sports Festival has recreational activities before the tournament event. The recreational activities end and the tournament event begins.

Before Izuku steps out for his match, All Might goes to see Izuku, who says that he has gained control of One For All, but Izuku denies this, saying that he can only increase his strength by a minuscule amount, with All Might replying that he is hardly barely using 5% of One For All, which saddens Izuku. All Might tells Izuku not to worry and encourages him to smile whenever he feels anxious, saying that he is always watching Izuku.

The first match of the tournament between Izuku Midoriya and Hitoshi Shinso begins. Hitoshi taunts Izuku by calling Mashirao an idiot for throwing away the opportunity to participate in the tournament. Izuku is angered by Hitoshi's insults and runs towards him, telling Hitoshi to take back his words, after which Izuku mysteriously stops moving.
