Here’s what I was waiting and for, and they certainly delivered with the lines, the tone, the music, and the voice delivery. I completely forgot that All For One was already voiced through the TV that Tomura has in the hideout bar but damn, this guy is getting a lot more roles than I remember him having. Anyways, this was the episode I was hyping up and it did not disappoint. Rarely ever do exposition heavy scenes really convey this much meaning but, hey, if you haven’t read the manga and experienced this, I can probably guess you were getting goosebumps too
Piles of exposition, with the most important being that the League of Villains, despite Tomura’s tantrum, has only gained notoriety through Stain’s actions. I’ve mentioned this countless times before but I still lament how Season 2 will end before the start of an amazing arc, an arc which I was so excited to experience again that I decided to reread it. It amazes me how this series reached its turning point in less than a 100 chapters in. It’s also funny to think All For One’s namedrop happening now when we’ll most likely get a shot of him next week.
But anyway, we’re here to discuss the anime so let’s do just that
An exposition HEAVY episode ends with some exciting stuff. As I was typing this with the episode playing the back, I was catching myself in surprise how much I was transcribing the details laid out in the episode. The episode really nailed how it moved from its every-day training into what I believe is the first turning point of the series with the Hero Killer arc.
