That was the most painful week of waiting I've ever been through. This is a strong episode. It makes fantastic use of creative visuals, simple but effective animation, and recurring themes through the cinematography and color pallets. It also sets the stage for the season, setting up some new characters, answering some mysteries that have… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E4: A Bitter Taste
Ah, the Bell test. An anime classic. The majority of this episode is spent on one event: Deku's first meeting with Sir Nighteye. After establishing himself as the only All Might fanboy beyond Deku, Nighteye puts him to the test: take the seal of approval and stamp his papers himself. But that task will not… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E3: The Fanboy’s Test
One episode in and the show is already getting super dark! This is going to be a rough season. Not in terms of quality, mind you. I was talking about emotionally!

At long last, I am free from the obligation to wake up every Saturday and watch one of… Continue reading My Review Academia: Seasons 1 Through 3 (Watch This Anime!)
Come on Shigurake! You're hardly being subtle! It's a god damn miracle that no one ratted you out sooner! This episode is entirely table setting for the third season. We meet Toga and Dabi, Shigurake begins to truly develop into a villain, and all the kids are ready to go for the training camp. It… Continue reading My Review Academia S2 FINALE: no one look at the creepy guy in the hood who clearly has his hand on a kid’s throat
Does anyone else remember that book from when they were a kid? As the penultimate episode of season two, this episode leaves little to be desired. It has some of the best action, some of the best character drama, and some of the best pacing out of any episode in the season thus far. It… Continue reading My Review Academia S2 E24: Katsuki Bakugo and the No Good, Very Bad Day
