Boku no Hero Academia Episode 49- The End of an Era

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.

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.

Well just like I said, it seems the climax of the arc is approaching fast.

The climatic fight is either going to be the whole episode this week or one full episode and bleed into the other. I’ll probably go with the latter since Bakugo still needs saving and there’s a lot of monologues to be had with what the future holds. Can’t wait for that pointing scene though.

Boku no Hero Academia Episodes 31- Beginning of the End

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

While the fight itself is finished, we’ve still got a whole ‘nother episode detailing the aftermaths of Stain’s defeat as well as moving smoothly along to the final arc of the adaptation with the examination period the kids will undergo. This made me remember how little Bakugo has shown up in this 2nd half of the show so we’ll be back with his fuming anger whether we like it or not. I’ll tell you right now that Bakugo isn’t going to chill out around Deku for a long while so don’t hold your breath.

What I believe to be the climax of this arc arrives. Iida’s vengeance driven confrontation with Stain ends and as the latter is about to end the young hero’s life, Deku and Todoroki swoop in as they try and delay Stain for as long as possible. I’ll give this another episode for the fight to end and for the examination arc to start. Kind of sad it’s ending so close to an arc that preludes another amazing one but hey, this is a popular enough series I guess and I’m expecting for it to win over people with this arc so here’s hoping.

Boku no Hero Academia Episodes 28- Exposition Piling

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.
