I’m a sucker for a good freezing power and this episode definitely delivered a very practical approach to using large scale freezing in battle situations. This episode moved away from Midoriya (given he was in the infirmary for most of it) and we finally got to see some of his class mates in action and facing their own challenges. While it feels like the main plot got put on hold, it also feels like there are now less interchangeable background characters. Hopefully this leads to some richer stories where we see some of these powers being used in some interesting combinations. Keep the freezing though. I absolutely want to see that again.
