SEKKEN (せっけん)

SEKKEN is “soap.” The latest Vigilantes chapters are juggling multiple intriguing plotlines. Even though the police and licensed heroes are busy trying to uncover the villain group peddling a drug that boosts Quirks, All Might always has time to bring gifts. His gift in the latest chapter is thought to be SEKKEN, but it’s actually rose-scented bath salts. Tsukauchi tries to pass on the gift to his sister but ends up using the bath salts himself.

II NIOI (いいにおい)

II NIOI means “good smell.” After taking back the bath salts from his sister and stubbornly using them himself, Tsukauchi ends up getting embarrassed all day. Tracking down leads might be a little challenging when everyone is commenting on your II NIOI.
