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

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

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

Review: I know they put Midoriya and Bakugo together because their communication was dreadful, but that just seemed needlessly unfair. Midoriya was trying, kind of, to work with Bakugo and he is an absolute jerk. I still can't believe we're actually supposed to see him as a future hero and not a villain. Though in … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 37: Those Two Have Got To Work On Their Issues

My Hero Academia Episode 33: All Might’s Hesitation

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

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 Series Review

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. Along the way, he meets his idol (All Might) and through demonstrating heroic spirit convinces All Might to assist him in achieving … Continue reading My Hero Academia Series Review

My Hero Academia Episode 12

Review: At the end of episode 11 All Might showed up and this episode continues directly on. The fight is amazing and given what we know about All Might, full of unexpected tension. That said, the fight is literally the only thing that happens this episode as well as some ramblings from the villain about … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 12

My Hero Academia Episode 9

Review: 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 … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 9

My Hero Academia Episode 7

Review: While most of this episode was taken up with flashbacks of a quirkless childhood and increasingly unnecessary teen angst, the combat kept things moving along. Once again I question the logic of anime teachers as even All Might questioned whether or not he was making the right choice and given the end result may … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 7
