This week the story focuses in on a different group of characters and there's some ups and downs as it goes about it. Be sure to check out the post if you didn't … Continue reading Visualist x 100!!!! – My Hero Academia Season 4: Episode 5
Three cheers for Lutz who is probably getting my vote for best supporting character ever. Oh yeah and Main's quest for paper continues.
The first practice match against a champion school may be a cliche move for a sports anime but Stars Align at least knows how to put its best foot forward for the characters we've followed so far and how to keep the pace moving. It still ends on a cliff-hanger that was most definitely inevitable.
Shinchou Yuusha continues to surprise me with how Seiya continues to evolve as a character. I'm sure Ristarte wasn't the only one who was kind of stunned by his declaration at the conclusion of this episode. This comedy isekai didn't just get my attention, it has managed to make me very interested in where it intends to go over the course of the last 6 episodes.
Another two episodes of Assassins Pride and I'm thoroughly convinced that this anime doesn't know what it wants to be. Between school slice of life antics, tournaments that are over before they start and supernatural drama there's so many possible paths and yet no clarity or focus. The end result is that by episode 6 I'm finding myself watching the clock more than the show.
All things considered, the inhabitants of Ishigami village take their village burning down surprisingly in-stride this week in Dr Stone. While last week was pleasantly surprising, this week while interesting felt like it was on hold and trying to help us get to a specific end point at a specific time. Still, there were some good moments to be found.
While the Crimson Vow didn't learn the lesson Reina was aiming for, this episode probably taught them all the value of finishing a job. Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life takes a small detour from light and frothy fun for a look at the slightly more serious side of a hunter's job.
Iruma's class are growing flowers with magic this week in Marimashita! Iruma-Kun. What could possibly go wrong when a human wearing a magic eating ring tries to use magic to grow a flower in a demon school?
After three episodes of waiting, My Hero Academia season 4 episode 4 reminded me of what I love about the series. Kapodaco and I share our thoughts on this latest episode.
