Big Mom Proves Even Evil Has Standards

Have you ever heard of the trope “even evil has standards?” It’s a very popular trope created for a sole purpose. And that purpose is to show that if even the villains are disgusted by something, then you know that it’s bad! And in this case, it’s Big Mom who shows us that even evil has standards.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 5-Black Fallen Angel!

Dude, ‘Black Fallen Angel’ Sounds like A Sick Band Name!

Okay, I admit that I thought that this season of My Hero Academia started out slow. However, now that the joint training arc has begun, things have started to pick up. We’re seeing just what the students of the Hero Course are capable of, and they’re all quite formidable. Case in point, Fumikage Tokoyami, who has one of the coolest Quirks in the series, gets the spotlight this episode as he unveils a new move: Black Fallen Angel.

It’s Official: Shinso is Awesome!

I remember telling you guys last week just how highly I thought of Shinso’s Quirk, Brainwashing, right? In the right circumstances, it can subdue a villain without any injuries or collateral damage. Since that often wont’ happen, though, we have to see how Shinso holds up in an actual fight. And I think that he does pretty well. Not only that, but the fighting animation for this episode is pretty darn good!

Luffy Ascends to the Next Level of Haki!

If you folks will recall, the first time that Luffy fought Kaido, he didn’t leave a scratch on him and got thrown in Udon Prison. However, this led Luffy to discover that he can level up his Haki to let him hurt foes without even touching them. He trained his butt off to learn how to use his Haki like that, and it looks like it paid off. But it’s only now that we see the true extent of his power! Luffy finally takes his Haki to the next level, and it is glorious!

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 3-Joint Training Arc Begins

Clash of the Hero Courses! The Joint Training Arc Begins

I’ll be honest with you guys going in. The Joint Training Arc of My Hero Academia wasn’t among my favorite parts of the story. Don’t get me wrong: I understand how important it is to showcasing the growth of all the heroes. However, I feel like they keep repeating this scenario more than necessary. Well, at least I know I’m in for some real enteretainment. Plus, we see the return of an aspiring hero.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 2-Vestiges

Vestiges of the Past Come Back to Haunt Heroes

Okay, so the first episode of the new season of My Hero Academia may have been lackluster. However, now that the obligatory introduction’s done with, we’re finally getting to the good stuff. This episode sees the vestiges of the past come back to haunt the present day as we dive deep into the origin of One for All. And we also see just how bad of a parent Endeavor really was.

My Hero Academia S5 Episode 1-Heroes, Move Out

Welcome Back, Heroes! Class is in Session!

It’s been more than a year since the end of the last season of My Hero Academia. From the perspective of 2020, though, it might as well be a lifetime. Thankfully, the vaccines are rolling out, which means that we can slowly start returning to a new normal. And the arrival of spring brings MHA’s fifth season! And while I may be writing more now than I was at this time last year, I can’t resist wanting to get in on the anime. Granted, I will simply be reviewing rather than recapping like I did last year in order to conserve time, so it balances out in the end. However, with that out of the way, we can dive into the season premiere. How was it, you may ask?

Andrew’s Last Gift to Nadia

Well, it looks like the Red Cave Arc is over now. No big enemy to fight, just a major revelation about Mother and what kind of effect that she has on the universe. Also, remember how last chapter, I guessed that Andrew somehow got his hands on the treasure of Red Cave before he died? Called it!

The Meaning of Momonosuke

Two weeks ago, we saw Oda deal out wild card after wild card in the war for Wano. First, Kaido reveals his plans to turn Wano into a Pirate Empire. Secondly, he seemingly kills Orochi and forces his men to join him or die. Thirdly, Nami and Carrot have been captured by Big Mom. Worst of all, though, Momonosuke is gonna be killed. Yet the Yonko remain unaware that the jaws of the Alliance are about to snap shut on them as Momonosuke lives up to the meaning of his name.

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.

My Hero Academia S4 Episode 22 Important Scenes

Your Dream

How many of you have had some fantastic dream as a child only for it to be crushed by reality? I’m pretty sure that everyone has, but that doesn’t make our inability to attain it hurt any less. Why bring this up? Because we get a look at Gentle and La Brava’s pasts in this episode, and it makes us realize that they’re not evil. They’re just two people who’ve had a lousy life and are trying to make something of it.
