It finally happened.
From the onset of the series, Deku and Bakugo’s relationship has been a point of contention that many people hated the one-sidedness of its dynamic and this is something that even I wondered how to approach as even after all they’ve been through, the two never never had a heart to heart. Imagine my reaction when this internal fever pitch reached its edge and the two just had to duke it out but thankfully without too much lethal intent.
And look at the ending too, we’re getting those three to show up. How far are we going to go with this season I wonder.

I know that the popular comparison to BnHA’s Chunin Exams would be the sports festival in the early-game-multi-character-development arc but circumstance wise, the Provisional License exams definitely fit the bill a lot more since it involves moving up in the hero society compared to the free self-promotion the Sports Festival was.

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.

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.

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.

The more I look at this opening the more obvious the references they’re making are becoming, that and I’m starting to like it a bit more. Much to my predictions, the end of this episode is where the real meat of the series begins and I’m glad that they’re not wasting anytime getting to what I consider an early climax of the first big arc of BnHA. For those who haven’t read the manga, I’ll tell you right now that things are going to get pretty exciting real fast.

It’s actually here, a non-recap episode that chugs along through the arcs leading up to the big climax we’re treated to previewing in the new season’s opening. To this day I think The Day is the best opening the series has had thanks to my immense bias towards Porno Graffiti but let’s not dwell on that and just get through this. As I’ve talked about before, Episode 39 was just a recap episode so there’s no real point in going through that.
