For the first time in ‘My Hero Academia‘, we need to talk about anime’s dirtiest word: filler.
You may think that I now need to go wash my mouth out with soap. But just like most of this show, they decided to say ‘fuck that’ and they made something really awesome anyway. It’s not a particularly fantastic episode, but it’s far from bad.
In this stand alone episode, we join Tsu for her internship with a group of heroes on the sea. However, things quickly spiral into the danger zone, as they’re all confronted by villains. Everyone’s favorite frog girl is pushed to her limits, both as a person and a hero.
Honestly, there’s not a whole lot to talk about here. The unique characters are well designed and very likable. The action is well animated with some fairly decent, though far from incredible, choreography. It doesn’t do a whole lot to explore or develop Tsu’s character.
It does exactly what it sets out to do. It puts a fun, popular character on a short, fun adventure. It’s a simple break from the main story, and it does a damn good job at it. I enjoy it a lot, but it’s hardly the first episode I think of when I recall the best episodes of the series.
Plus, it didn’t exactly make for a fantastic review, did it?
