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.
Thus begins a new arc.
While I hyped up the conclusion of this arc ever since the Sports Festival arc, I can only see it go on for a handful of episodes before the kids arrive at their destination and the pro-heroes bust in to do their thing. How long the action will last is something I can’t estimate as well since it’s been a while since I’ve read this arc.
I’m not sure if I was right or wrong but we’re definitely shifting gears. I predicted then next arc would begin immediately and it technically did but the answer to Kirishima’s big proposal still hasn’t been answered, even though the answer is painfully obvious. The budding heroes now have a choice to make and two of them, technically three, already seem to have the choice made in their mind.
The question is who else will be spurred into action to save a person in need of help.
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.
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.
