emember how excited fans were when My Hero Academia got its first film? Some of the most elite Shonen series have made it onto the big screen over the years; it’s like an unofficial sign of greatness. Now, MHA has its film cinematic outing available in the US, World Heroes Mission, and it opens us up to the world of heroes beyond that of Japan. Unfortunately, the villain this time around is neither charismatic nor memorable like other villains.
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.
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.
As the hero work studies restarts, Uraraka and Tsuyu return to work under Ryukyu. Then, an event happens that ties to the upcoming MHA film.
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.
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.
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.
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.
