My Hero Academia: Two Heroes Movie Review

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

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

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
