My Review Academia S4 E10: Enter the League

This episode felt like a cheetah on a treadmill. It's sure going fast! But it's also not getting very far. There really isn't much to talk about in terms of plot. After Fat Gum and Red Riot finish their battle and start licking their wounds, Deku and the others continue on their quest to save… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E10: Enter the League

My Review Academia S4 E9: Red Riot Rising

Admittedly, I've been fairly critical of the last few episodes of My Hero Academia. I don't doubt that those criticisms were fair, mind you. But if I can be honest, they were starting to weigh on me. I thought that maybe my expectations for this season had been set way too high. That I'd set… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E9: Red Riot Rising

My Review Academia S4 E8: One Who Devours the Sun

I'll be honest: this episode was pretty rough. It was definitely good, don't get me wrong. It had some strong character moments, fleshing out a character that hasn't had any time to shine yet in an interesting way. But the animation was pretty rough and the action was short-lived and underwhelming. After having broken into… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E8: One Who Devours the Sun

My Review Academia S4 E6: Heroes Unite

Honestly? There isn't a whole lot to talk about here. This isn't a bad episode, but there wasn't a whole lot that happened. After a few days off of his internship, Deku is brought back to Sir Nighteye's office. But he isn't alone: Uraraka, Kirishima, and Tsu are coming along with him, right along with… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E6: Heroes Unite

My Review Academia S4 E5: Red Riot’s Debut

*Apologies for the delay on this one. I'm a dumb-dumb and forgot to get it done on schedule.* This episode was a mixed bag for me. On one hand, it shone the spotlight almost exclusively on the show's supporting cast, specifically Kirishima with a side of Uraraka and Tsu. It introduced some great characters, fleshed… Continue reading My Review Academia S4 E5: Red Riot’s Debut

My Review Academia S4 E4: A Bitter Taste

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
