My Hero Academia Volume 31 release date
Manga volumes are released in Japan (in Japanese) months, even a year before they are translated and collected in the West. This is a tradition.

Although Midoriya and the others have managed to drive off Tomura, All For One is only just getting started. As the dust settles, the Todoroki family must finally face their troubled past, and Midoriya begins to understand just what One For All really is and that reaching his full potential might test his convictions…”

My Hero Academia Volume 31 spoilers
My Hero Academia Volume 31 was published in Japan in August 2021, so there really are no spoilers we can give you, since the content itself is well known. We do know, although it’s not explicitly a spoiler per se, that we’ll see two additional pages added in Chapter 302, showing Rei’s deterioration moments that directly lead to Shoto’s burning incident, and Toya’s subsequent “death”. This also fixes a continuity error in the magazine version, which stated Toya died before she was hospitalized.
Where to read My Hero Academia Volume 31?
The only place where you can read My Hero Academia on a regular basis is Viz Media’s official site, which offers the latest chapters in English. Viz Media is the official American publisher of My Hero Academia, which is why it offers the series regularly, but the chapters are published after the Japanese originals. A Viz Media subscription is a good thing because the chapters are updated regularly, but you also get access to a lot of other series as well.
