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
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.
