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

The Best of Summer 2017

Okay, we have made it to the announcement for the best of Summer 2017. Starting with my favourites of the season and then the reader's poll results. With over 100 votes again, and a few more than Spring, I am hoping that the poll is becoming more reflective of the feelings of the community, however … Continue reading The Best of Summer 2017

Summer 2017 Final Thoughts

This is my final week on Summer anime and I'll be getting around to series reviews very soon with Sagrada Reset coming out next week (it was the first one finished so only fair really). I still have my best and worst of the season posts to come out and on that note remember that … Continue reading Summer 2017 Final Thoughts

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

Summer 2017 Week 12

Okay, some shows are done and others are close to drawing to a close and I'm now having to seriously think about my plans for the Autumn season. Here's my list but there will be one more to draw the season to a close. Remember polling for the best and worst anime of the Summer … Continue reading Summer 2017 Week 12

Friday’s Feature: Do You Like To Look In The Mirror?

When reading reviews a comment that is regularly mentioned is how relatable a certain character or situation is and why that makes something more or less interesting. I find this an intriguing comment mostly because the bulk of my viewing growing up was strictly fantasy and science fiction and while you can relate well to … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Do You Like To Look In The Mirror?

My Hero Academia Episode 36: And So They Fought

Review: If this wasn't the second last episode of the season, you would swear it was a filler episode. We get the match ups of most of the characters we don't really care about (Uraraka is the exception here but her match is over and done in almost an instant). While there's certainly merit to … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 36: And So They Fought

Summer 2017 Week 11

Another week of anime watching and as we approach the end of the season for most shows I start thinking about all the shows out this season I didn't watch. Not the ones that I dropped or the ones I can't access, but the ones I just never got around to trying or tried an … Continue reading Summer 2017 Week 11

My Hero Academia Episode 35: Aizawa’s Always A Teacher

Review: There's a lot of terrible teachers out in the anime universe, fortunately for Todoroki and Yaoyorozu, Aizawa isn't one of them. Even when he's hunting them down, he still takes the time to reflect on their progress as students and to give them the push they need to overcome their own difficulties. As much … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 35: Aizawa’s Always A Teacher
