I genuinely forgot that Shigurake getting shot happened, and it caught me so off guard that it gave me a long and painful laugh. It's not something you'd expect a Pro Hero to do, even if it's against one of the main villains of the series. I mean, for god's sake, the dude just walks… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 FINALE: Shigurake Actually Fucking Gets Shot and Gets Blood Everywhere
And now, we finally get to talk about the episode that everyone remembers. When people talk about their favorite moments from season one, there are two major scenes they bring up. Those being Deku VS Bakugo Round One and the topic of today's episode: All Might VS The Nomu. And I'm going to come right… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E12: All Might Goes Plus Ultra!
Now that we're finally getting into the finale of the first season, we can start to discuss some aspects of the show that we couldn't touch on before. The USJ Arc is filled to the brim with character defining moments, though not all of them really stick around very long. Case in point, Todoroki's ruthlessness.… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E11: First We Go Up, Then We Go Down
That may be the single strangest title I have ever written for anything ever. This is easily one of my favorite episodes of the series, and it still holds up to repeat viewings. It's a damn good time, featuring some of the first seasons best moments, facial work, and attention to detail. Plot wise, it's… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E10: Smash, Balls, and Frog!
In terms of plot, there's not a whole lot going on here. We spend the first majority of it with the Class 1-A kids deciding the Class Rep, then the set up for the final arc of season one: the USJ attack. Aside from that, the only thing worth mentioning is the substantial development of… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E9: Iida Does a Thing!
There really isn't a whole lot of plot in this episode, is there? After burning through the montage of the other students (and getting through a mostly pointless scene between Recovery Girl and All Might), we get a proper introduction to a few of the other 1-A kids. Then we get the only really important… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E8: Check Out All These Cool Powers!!
Okay, seriously, no one thought to put him through some kind of therapy after this fight?! He practically killed his opponent just because he had a grudge! I had to go to fucking therapy because I yelled a lot, but this guy gets away with nearly fucking killing a dude?! Bakugo's mental health (or in this case, lack thereof)… Continue reading My Review Academia S1 E7: okay seriously, we’re completely positive this boy is stable, right?!
