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.
Ah, just one more episode away until the “peak” of this tournament arc. You might be thinking that surely the most exciting fight will be between Bakugo and Todoroki but recall how the latter called Deku out instead of Bakugo at the start. Bakugo is a non-issue in this battle of minds as Todoroki’s family burden has him view Deku not as a means of defying his father but rising above him.
While I do find Uraraka pretty nice, I just couldn’t help myself love that short fight between Kirishima and Tetsutetsu a bit more so they’ll be your screencaps this week.
