My Hero Academia: Two Heroes Movie Review

heromovie2

I was pretty surprised that I got to see this. I knew I was going to the city for work but the odds of my intended travel lining up with the week this movie was released were pretty low so I hadn't even checked where it was airing until I realised that I was in … Continue reading My Hero Academia: Two Heroes Movie Review

Friday’s Feature: Appreciating the Transformative Journey of All Might’s Character

hero academia 3 fifteen

After much contemplation I've returned to All Might, because as of episode 15 in season 3, the main theme that continues to capture my attention in My Hero Academia is this idea of what happens when a society is built around a single pillar and that pillar cracks or falls.

My Hero Academia Series Review

hero

Overview: In a world where almost everyone has a quirk (superpower), Midoriya finds he is the exception. That doesn't stop him from dreaming big and working toward his goal of being a hero.

My Hero Academia Season 2 Series Review: Shining the Light on Heroes and Villains

hero24c

Overview: There's no denying that season 1 of this show made me sit up and take notice when I picked it up mid-season after reading many positive reviews. The second season continues Midoriya's journey (as well as the rest of the students' journies) to becoming a hero. Earlier I covered some of the ideas in … Continue reading My Hero Academia Season 2 Series Review: Shining the Light on Heroes and Villains

My Hero Academia Episode 38: Setting The Stage

hero38b

Review: It is odd where I don't mind a final episode that so clearly is nothing but set up for future engagements, but with a future series already announced and knowing it is very likely to actually be delivered I found myself pretty hooked by this story. So far, the visible leader of the villains … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 38: Setting The Stage

My Hero Academia Episode 37: Those Two Have Got To Work On Their Issues

hero37d

Review: I know they put Midoriya and Bakugo together because their communication was dreadful, but that just seemed needlessly unfair.

My Hero Academia Episode 33: All Might’s Hesitation

hero33a

Review: This episode certainly continued with the idea of social media and looking at how Stain's influence is spreading in the world of heroes, at least those ideas were running around in the background and permeating the set up for what is apparently to come. I'm glad I spent some time on this idea in … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 33: All Might’s Hesitation

My Hero Academia Season 2 Episode 14

hero14

Overview: We pick up the story immediately following the attack on the school with investigations into the master mind and arrests aplenty. And in case we forgot anything we spend at least seven minutes flash backing during the first half of this episode so don't rush to rewatch season 1. Review: Things had finally gotten … Continue reading My Hero Academia Season 2 Episode 14

My Hero Academia took the anime community by storm. While super-powered kids going to school seems a little over-done, the colourful and cute cast with their vibrant personalities and super-cool powers definitely won over the masses in this first season.
