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 Interlude Ends With This Episode

Well, I think this may be my least favorite episode of the entire season of My Hero Academia. When we left off, Bakugo, Shoto, Camie, and Inasa had to rein in a bunch of problem elementary school students. When words failed to reach them, they resort to humanity’s other, time-honored solution: violence. Or so it looks like: in truth, they’re just trying to reach those kids hearts.

Oh, and Midoriya and Aoyama end up bonding while Bakugo and Endeavor own up to their short-comings.

My Hero…Slice of Life?

So, last episode of My Hero Academia saw the end to one of the biggest stories in the anime’s history. Overhaul loses the ability to use his Quirk, and Sir Nighteye died surrounded by All Might, Deku, LeMillion, and everyone else. What could one of the biggest shonen anime on the market do to top such an amazing arc? Apparently start a new one with a slice of life theme.
