So I finally figured out that this would end on Episode 38 so we only got two more episodes to go. I can say that I’m agreeing with the decision to split these tests up into singular exams instead of constantly switching back and forth between them. It makes perfect sense for the main duo of the series to have two full episodes to tentatively settle their differences. For the millionth time, I’ll be lamenting where the series ends off for the adaptation but just you wait anime-only fans, you’ll be thinking the same thing once a third season hopefully comes around.
So when I said we’d see All For One this week, I guess I was wrong. Funnily enough, I don’t remember this taking place at all in the manga with Tsuyu’s little adventure. This reasoning escapes me unless Tsuyu won something in the popularity poll or something because I never really cared for her since she hasn’t really gotten an actual “development” arc in the manga yet. I don’t doubt my memories are a bit fragmented with the series but the only notable thing about Tsuyu is when she reprimands her fellow students after a rather large event.
But anyways, I guess we can save the other big exposition for the next episode.
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
