Boku no Hero Academia Episode 51&52- A Fresh New Goal

Well it took a couple weeks but we’re back with more BnHA. I’m guessing they will conclude this season up until they reach Nighteye and Mirio and lord knows how long Season 4 till take but it isn’t too far off to think a single cour for the Internship Arc can take place with Chisaki and all that.

But man, I am not feeling that new opening too much. Wonder how long it’ll take me to come around to it. Even the ending’s animations look a bit jank. Not much to cover in this episode and to be honest, I think I glossed over the early bits of this arc but if I remember correctly, there should be another scene that I’m looking forward to happen before the season ends.

Megalo Box- The Thirst for Victory

Megalo Box- The Thirst for Victory

The season’s “sleeper hit” comes to a close in a way that most didn’t expect.

Megalo Box opened up with an incredible two-episode start that captivated many people’s attention back in the start of the season and that certainly included the likes of me who showed up nearly two weeks late to the series’ start. As a project meant to commemorate the 50th anniversary of legendary sports manga, Ashita no Joe, Megalo Box conveys a retelling of the series with its own spin on things. As exciting as its start was, the question remains on how it continued on to its finale. Since I have yet to actually finish Ashita no Joe, but by presence in the anime/manga community alone, I am aware of some things regarding its plot, I will avoid trying to compare it too much and talk about Megalo Box on its own.

Will it end by the Provisional Exam arc or maybe even the Internship Arc? I believe I mentioned this before but BnHA’s chapter to episode ratio isn’t all that enormous compared to other big manga adaptations. The first big saga has come to a close with AfO’s fights and now it’s more pro hero work with the provisional license exams pitting the students against other schools before the Internship Arc begins and we move onto to the rather lengthy Overhaul storyline featuring Nighteye, Mirio, and the titular Overhaul.

Yuri makes a request to change the finale.

The last calm before the inevitable storm of a finale that will most likely end up going the same way Ashita no Joe does. A pretty heartfelt episode that brings together some of the characters before the final fight goes underway. Hopefully they saved all they could to make the finale as amazing as they could possibly have it.

As moving and full of impact as I hoped.

The OST for this series is an element I always praised about and they knocked it out of the park once again. The emotional stakes in the episode were also insanely high and these types of themes of believing in others this hard and particularly Endeavor’s despair over never being good enough is something that always rings something in me personally. Now I’m just curious where they’ll end this season on.

Sometimes a lie that goes on long enough eventually becomes true.

In the best case scenario, Nanbu finally sees clearly on what’s truly important. I wasn’t too keen on Sacchio’s scene this episode, and admittedly I wasn’t ever big on his character, but it was still a poignant decision that made Nanbu relinquish what Fujimaki hanged over him from the start of the series. All that remains is the final bout.

Now that the fight to dwarf most all fights before it and most fights after it is finally here, there’s just one scene I’m looking forward to the most in this event and it’s at the very end, after the one fight quote that I know will be quoted for a long time when it airs. The question still remains where Season 3 will end off though, either after all the home visits or a short time after the new semester rolls around.
