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 26

Review: This was a much more low-key episode than what we've been watching but it was quite effective as we see the students all hyped up after the tournament and moving into an internship and we also finally get to see the full impact on Iida of his brother's attack. While we saw the attack … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 26

Friday’s Feature: My Hero Academia and Hero Culture

Okay, I've been reading a lot of My Hero Academia posts over the last couple of weeks as my recent In Case You Missed It post kind of highlighted and what I've really loved about these posts is the range of issues and topics they have covered. Given how excited I've been about this show … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: My Hero Academia and Hero Culture

My Hero Academia Episode 17

Review: I've thought this before, but class A is full of morons isn't it? They might be really powerful but they just like to bulldoze their way through challenges rather than thinking it through. While the spokesman for class B at the end of the episode may have had a fairly repellant personality, his reasoning … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 17

My Hero Academia Episode 16

Review (some spoilers): There was no denying that this episode was kind of fun. Full of frantic effort by the characters, introductions to new powers, desperation to win, and just some novel uses of powers within the context of the game. But two things overshadowed my fun. The first was the inevitable catch up of … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 16

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

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 12

Review: Well, aren't we all glad of second season announcements. Except that it leaves us with pretty much no resolution. Okay, Alisha is fine. A bit too fine given how much blood she lost. You would think it would take her longer to be up and bouncing around but at least she didn't die. Actually, … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 12

One Punch Man Series Review

Overview: Saitama became a hero fun fun but still didn't get a lot of recognition. After unwillingly gaining a disciple (the cyborg Genos), Saitama takes the test to become an official hero and then begins tackling official jobs. Unfortunately, other than Genos, no one else seems to realise just how strong Saitama is. One Punch … Continue reading One Punch Man Series Review
