While this episode started off relatively slow, that didn’t last long. Members of the press are trying to find out about All Might as a teacher, proving that the mass media are intrusive in any parallel version of reality. This leads to a lock down situation which panics the students but does allow us to see Iida in a slightly better light (though he quickly goes back to being overly precious and you wonder just how long the class are going to put up with that whistle for). There are a lot of plot threads thrown about this episode and it looks like this is leading somewhere great but this episode itself is pretty much unresolved. Can’t wait for the next one.
I’m also awarding this show the best line of the week (which is not really a prize or an award I’m going to give out on a weekly basis but this line was too good to pass up).
