Seems episode 12 has divided us on our opinion. After the emotional punch that was episode 11, episode 12 was always going to be a bit of a lull as My Hero Academia began transitioning into the next phase of the story. Below, Kapodaco and I share our thoughts on episode 12.

Hero50fKapodaco:

It seems My Hero Academia will continue with its streak of “Laying down prospects to look forward to in the future” with this latest episode. The students of U.A. living together in a dorm? Sounds perfect for further development of relationships and personalities.

Other than that, I felt this was a fairly weak episode. Not as weak as the first six episodes of this season, but the first episode since the season started to skyrocket in quality where I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the dialogue present. Intriguing as it was to see…

Boy, do I LOVE teenagers who are too scared of sex to actually have sex, instead of behaving like teenagers and having sex. (more…)

Entry #9: Koukoku no Shugosha (SoM 2018)

I really wasn’t fond of this manga early on. My feelings were in murky conflict as I fought to diversify my Summer with different sorts of genres and tones, instead of endlessly indulging in cute/stupid romances. There are times when I try to charge forward in spite of my disinterest, thinking it will do me good. In this case, the opening chapters did little to bring me out of my funk.

Visualist x100!! – My Hero Academia Season Three: Episode Eleven

It is not the most creative episode of the series’ run, but it is (debatably) one with the highest of stakes. All Might versus All For One, with a definitive conclusion that will change the fabric of reality within their world. Karandi and I take in the repercussions of the episode’s ending minutes and spit out some thoughts. (more…)
