Ladies and gentlemen, this is a momentous day for My Hero Academia! Today marks the release of the show’s 100th episode!
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!
As the fifth and final match of the joint training session begins, the problems that Deku’s been having with One for All come to the forefront. Then, suddenly, a strange, new power begins to emerge from within him! What could this end up meaning?

OH. MY. GOD, YOU GUYS! My Hero Academia was in full force this week as the Joint Training Arc between the Hero courses continued, and both sides were giving their absolute A-Game. In other words, MHA is once again beginning to go beyond, PLUS ULTRA!
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.
As the end to the second match of the Joint Training Session arrives, we see just how the young heroes thrive in the face of adversity. In short: they all kick ass.

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.
Every now and then, they’ve got to deal with the quieter moments. In this case, we see Bakugo, Shoto, and some students from Shiketsu High take their remedial classes for their provisional liscences. Their first lesson: winning the hearts and minds of the people. By people, I mean a bunch of schoolkids.
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.
You know what I love about the creator of My Hero Academia? The fact that he understands how great Shonen heroes don’t give up hope in the face of impossible odds. That, and he loves Star Wars as much as I do. And yes, the title for this is a reference to Star Wars.
After several episodes of waiting, Lemillion manages to catch up to Overhaul and retrieve Eri. But can he beat him on his own? And I don’t care what IGN says, the fight’s not “a letdown”.
As the raid on the Hassakai’s base continues, the League of Villains members Twice and Toga suddenly appear! What could they posstibly want, though?
When faced with the overwhelming power of one of the Eight Bullets, can Red Riot and Fat Gum’s unbreakable shield hold up?
With the raid on the Chie Hassakai underway, Amajiki takes on three of Overhaul’s enforcers. It’s time to show why he’s called the hero Suneater!
