It’s a bit tough to discuss this series as a whole for a number of things
- I never read the novels.
- It’s an adaptation of said novel series but it’s adapting the middle segment of it
- The magic system replaces the usual elements of a traditional mystery
And for that reason, I’m going to keep it short.

It only now occurred to me how that was the season’s ending, guess they couldn’t kill someone off for shock value when they’ll probably do it the opening 5 minutes of the next season.
Oh you didn’t know? Season 4 already got announced much to my surprise but I guess the Overhaul Arc is pretty long for an entire season to be based around it. Seeing as though we’ll have ourselves a break from BnHA for just a little bit, let’s talk about Season 3.

The chapter on the classroom of heroes comes to a close as they prepare for a fun and grueling excursion to the woods. I’ve droned on and off about how the S2 ending off right before the most exciting portion of the manga serialization began but I still have to give credit where credit is due with how far this adaptation came. Let’s not waste too much time since this is a look at the series as a second season, and not so much as its own show.

So as it turns out, it only needed one episode of angry and anxious exchanges between Bakugo and Deku for them to beat All Might’s challenge. I guess that decision definitely makes sense since the episode preview showed that scene with Tomura and Deku and I feel that’s as poetic as an ending you could do as far as this adaptation goes. Good choice, it’s something I completely forgot.
Like always, it’s time for the seasonal round up so look forward to it.

So I finally figured out that this would end on Episode 38 so we only got two more episodes to go. I can say that I’m agreeing with the decision to split these tests up into singular exams instead of constantly switching back and forth between them. It makes perfect sense for the main duo of the series to have two full episodes to tentatively settle their differences. For the millionth time, I’ll be lamenting where the series ends off for the adaptation but just you wait anime-only fans, you’ll be thinking the same thing once a third season hopefully comes around.

These examinations are actually going faster than I initially thought, but even then, there’s only 1 or 2 episodes left. It’s quite the packed episode until we hit the real examination between the wonder duo and All Might. There wasn’t anything mind-blowingly well done about the episode since it’s exactly what I expected but I guess it was decent to see one of the more popular pairings of Todoroki and Yaoyorozu take root here.

We return to our regularly scheduled weekend programming. I noticed they decided to take some changes with the examination formats, especially how they seem to be doing them 1 by 1 instead of having them done simultaneously. I guess that would save some time and extra work since a good chunk of these fights are only given through us by snippets instead of being fully shown.
We’re closing the end of this season but I’m curious as to where they’ll cut off, and exactly how soon the 3rd season gets green-lit.
