Review Episode 29:
I remember back when the tournament arc started the reason I was disappointed with that was because tournament arcs just can’t do high stakes for real. The worst that will happen is they’ll lose (although My Hero Academia managed to put its own spin on that with Midoriya doing some permanent damage to his hand). Well, the internship is definitely making up for that. I wanted real danger and stakes, here they are, and watching Iida, then Midoriya, and then Midoriya backed by Todoroki facing the real world Hero Killer is truly spectacular and everything I could ever want from this show.
Midoriya and Todoroki have both come so far to who they were back in the tournament arc, and Iida is having his moment now where he can choose whether he’s going to grow as a hero or really just fail as a hero. I’m hoping he steps up because this is a generation of kids who really could change their world once they got over their own baggage. Loved this episode and looking forward to the next.
Review Episode 30:
Once again, My Hero Academia has left me completely speechless and just sitting as the credits play staring at the screen in silence. This episode was go, go, go with the exception of one fairly necessary flashback sequence for Iida.
We finally got to see Endeavor actually act like a hero and it makes a pleasant change given our only previous encounters with him made me really question this world’s definition of hero. We also got to see the conclusion of the fight between the Hero Killer, Todoroki, Iida and Midoriya and that was a fantastic experience. Yet, even when the show delves into the darker side of this world, the watching experience remains one of fun and entertainment. This is a show that balances itself well and always remembers what it wants to give its audience. Fantastic episode, looking forward to what comes next.
Thanks for reading.

Ugh, the more I read about this series, the more I hate it that it isn’t available here yet. It sounds like such a terrific series 😊
Really hope you get access soon. It is such a fun series. Admittedly, it isn’t flawless and the story is pretty much what you would expect, but it is just so fun you can kind of forgive all the little nitpicks.
This is such an important part of the story and the hero killer is a fascinating fella.
It certainly is opening up a lot of possibilities.
I also found the ideology of the hero killer very fascinating.
I’m working on a feature about that. I might finish it by next week or maybe the week after. Particularly after episode 31 – which I haven’t yet reviewed – I think the ideology needs to be discussed.
Absolutely and I can’t wait to join in that discussion!
These two episodes were amazing! I thought the fight with Stain would be longer but once again, My Hero Academia kept the fight short but effective and it was pretty breathtaking to watch! This show really knows how to do these fight scenes really well and I am looking forward to what happens next!
It really is keeping us waiting for the next thing to happen.
If this season will end in the End of the Term Test arc, the next season is definitely something you should all the more look forward to! More real danger and high stakes from there onwards. 😉
I still have not watched this show. I really need to give it a try.
Definitely should give it a go. It’s a lot of fun to watch.
