My Hero Academia S5 Episode 25-Tomura's Metamorphosis

Prelude to a Vicious New Evil. The Paranormal Liberation War Comes

e most exciting, save for the first and the last. However, those who keep up with the manga know that this season’s merely meant to build up to something big. As the fifth season of the anime ends, we prepare for the biggest arc in the series to date: the Paranormal Liberation War.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 23-Tenko Shimura: Origin

Something Out of a Horror Film. Tenko Shimura: Origin

The life of a superhero can be a hard one. Superheroes can save a lot of lives and become respected and renowned the world over, but it can also destroy their chance at happiness. An all-too tragic example was All Might’s mentor, Nana Shimura. She left her son in foster care to protect him from All for One, only for her grandson to become Tomura Shigaraki. Even decisions with good intentions can lead to tragic consequences. Now, we get to witness first-hand the tragic origins of Tenko Shimura, the future Shigaraki.

Finally, MHA Is Getting to the Good Stuff!

inally! After weeks and weeks of waiting, MHA is about to get to the good stuff! With the fifth season of the anime only having six episodes left, it’s got to get a move on if it wants to lay the groundwork for the next season. The season that will, more than likely, focus on the biggest and darkest arc to date. And it starts with Present Mic and Eraserhead encountering a face from their past.

The Unforgiven Offers an Emotional Look at Forgiving People

You know how a lot of religions and spiritual schools say that we shouldn’t hold a grudge and learn to forgive and move on? It’s simple in practice, but in reality, it’s a lot harder to implement. There are going to be times when we meet people who commit actions that we consider unforgivable, such as Natsu’s resentment for his father, Endeavor, for how abusive he was in the past. We know that Endeavor’s trying to change for the better, yet Natsu refuses to give him a second chance. So what happens then? What happens to someone who remains unforgiven despite everything they try to do to make things right? That’s what this episode of My Hero Academia tackles.

The Heroes Move Forward, One Step at A Time

Okay, I know I said that I was fine with waiting for the season to save the villain arc until the end, but now it’s becoming a problem. Like, a big problem. It’s throwing things at us without any context, and unless you’ve read the manga, then you’re going to be left confused. At least we’re getting closer to the moment we’ve been waiting for, though.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 14 Opening

The Liberation War Brews on the Horizon

Since the end of last week’s episode, I’ve heard more than a few fans complain about the way that the season of My Hero Academia is playing out. In the manga, the Joint Training Arc was followed by an arc focused solely on the villains of the series. However, the show’s taken a different route. It’s focusing on the Endeavor Agency Arc first, then moving to the villains arc while hinting at the liberation going on in the background. I can understand why they’re doing this, at least. They want to save the best for last for this season. That way, when we get to Season Six, they can focus entirely on the biggest arc to date.

My Hero Academia Wishes You A Merry Christmas!

I know that Christmas in the Summertime is a thing, but I completely forgot the fact that the world of My Hero Academia has reached the Christmas season. It’s weird to see the anime celebrate the holiday when we’re about to head into Summer, but beggars can’t be choosers. Besides, those who’ve read the manga know that this is going to be one of the last happy moments that the young heroes will have for a long time.

Deku Is Turning Into an Anime Spider-Man, and I Love it!

Do you guys know who Kohei Horikoshi, the creator of My Hero Academia, cited as a major influence when he created Izuku Midoriya. None other than the wall-crawler himself, Spider-Man. And it really shows; both start out as these nerdy kids that people look down on, only to become this incredibly inspiring heroes. However, the Spider-Man inspiration just kicked things up a notch. In the Last episode, we saw Deku suddenly manifest a new Quirk, courtesy of One For All’s ability to stockpile and pass on the Quirks of previous users. As a result, Deku’s got an even bigger arsenal of powers to draw from. As the fifth match of the Joint Training Session reaches its climax, though, he has to learn to control his powers, and fast!

Okay, I Admit: The Joint Training Arc Is Awesome

Okay, I admit it. When the Joint Training Arc first started, I thought that it was a snooze fest. But then we saw got to see what the Hero Course is really capable of, and now I’m hooked on it. Last time we were here, the score was tied with one win for Class 1-A, and another for Class 1-B. And the Joint Training Arc continues to heat up! Or in this case, freeze up.

My Hero Academia S4 Episode 25 The Start to the New Symbol of Peace

New Symbol of Peace

Well, folks, here we are at the end of this season of My Hero Academia, and what a season it’s been! In a world without the Symbol of Peace, All Might, society’s more on edge than ever.
Things have been low-key since Overhaul’s defeat, with the show focusing on the students. Yet in the penultimate episode, we saw the Pro Heroes return to the spotlight, now lead by Endeavor. He’s always wanted to be the Symbol of Peace (or at least No. 1), and when a deadly new Nomu attacks, he has his chance to prove himself. He. Does not. Waste it.
