Boku no Hero Academia Episode 44- Mission Complete

As an arc ends, another will soon begin.

The night of wild festivities nears its end as the villains achieve their goal. Seeing as though we’re around half-way through what a regular cour would last, the next arc is incoming with all the excitement and tension still high for what the events that go on from here on out will mean for UA and the kids involved.

Aragaki turned out to be a cool guy after all.

I got a bit more distracted than I would have liked after picking up some VNs to read in my free time. As you can see, my schedule and timings got pushed back but hopefully this won’t happen too frequently. Aragaki turned out to be a more likeable than I thought but the fight itself, while conveying a lot of emotion felt a bit lacking.

As problems get solved, more continue to take their place.

Out of the ten villains we’ve only seen Magne, Spinner, Dabi, Twice, Muscular, Moonfish, and Mustard while we’ve yet to see the remaining three but even then, there isn’t too much left of this arc to cover since we’re moving onto to the local endgame. As the episode stated, the villains are aiming for Bakugo and what happens to him is what will bring about what the opening is all foreshadowing towards.

Sure enough, the Top 100 rankings were too full of chumps for us to really pay attention to so we might as well feast our eyes on the spectacles that the Top 20 can bring us before Joe can have his rematch with Yuri. Breaking into the Top 15-10 has Aragaki stand in Joe’s way, a man from Nanbu’s past coming back to “repay” his gratitude in a very specific way.

I’ll be honest with everyone right now, I was really planning on just skipping the rest of the series and just resort to talk about it when it finished. For a multitude of petty and simple reasons, I think I might continue talking about this weekly but it’s really teetering on the edge and this episode only just pulled itself out of the deep end.

Of course, this doesn’t mean like they upped the animation quality of anything but the smaller parts surrounding whatever fight they go through here just felt entertaining to me. You’re safe for now P5: The Animation, let’s see how far it gets you though.

The first portion of Forest Training Camp’s series of fights leading up to a the REAL big arc begins and concludes with a crashing cliffside. Deku’s fight against Muscular only deals with a single villain out of the ten that arrived and realize that Deku is kind of out of commission now that his right arm is seriously beyond normal help out in the mountains.

But we’ll get to those fights after we cover Deku’s first solo bout.

Joe’s first fight makes quite a wave for himself by improvising his lack of a gear as a selling point.  A rather bold move for a rather dangerous sport where even grazes makes cuts across faces. Joe is up for the first sanctioned fight in his career and it’s up in the air if his experience and mettle of throwing matches will come to be enough where he won’t be doing anything of the sort.

The results of the fight are pretty amazing though.
