Visualist x 100!! – My Hero Academia Season Three Episode 24

Almost home, at last. Did the series make us comfortable enough to look forward to it?

Right so with one more episode to go My Hero Academia sets up… some sort of fight between first years and third years? I’m not entirely certain that this is really something I’m all that hyped for, but I guess we’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, this is how Kapodaco and I felt about the penultimate episode of the season.

Karandi:

Well, I’m pretty much convinced at this point that season three is going to end on a reasonably unspectacular note despite the promise of a fight against one of UA’s top students. This season has just been all over the place and there’s no time left to build up to anything that would feel kind of actually climatic. I’m definitely feeling that from a seasonal point of view, it would have made more sense to have given us a single cour season ending with All Might’s retirement…

What It Means to Be “Tryhard” in Anime (Or Fiction in General)

[This post was inspired by Karandi of 100wordanime’s “Why We Need to Stop Mocking Stories for Trying” post.]

If one was to search “tryhard” with my blog’s search box on the front page, they would find eight articles within the past two-ish years in which I used the word in a post. To be honest, I’m surprised there hasn’t been more cases of it, as it’s something I tend to say quite often (perhaps only in my head?). Of course, people can simply say things and assume people know what they mean by it, but I decided to take the road I paved without taking safety checks and am finally getting to those safety checks—to ensure that everyone is aware of what I’m talking about when I use the term as a form of negative criticism.

Thankfully, the battle wasn’t stopped for a good majority of its course! What came out of the fight between Midoriya and Bakugo? What does it mean to the bigger picture and the show’s general quality? Karandi and I discuss and ponder out loud. (more…)

Top 10 Favorite Games After One Year with KeenGamer

A disclaimer first and foremost: It has not technically been a year since I’ve started working at KeenGamer, as I was officially hired on the 22nd or 23rd of September, give or take. Though seeing as I don’t believe there will be any other games I may review in the next ten days that would find a place on this list I’ve compiled, I figured I may as well put it out there while it’s still fresh in my head… who am I kidding? I’ve planned this for months. I’m just impatient. (more…)

Visualist x 100!! – My Hero Academia Season Three Episode 22

We’re back to being pretty good (The show, that is)! Take a look!

The exam is done and now we know who passed and who failed, but more importantly, My Hero Academia is finally turning its attention to what is coming next. The story kind of stalled during the last arc and it kind of felt like we were spinning our wheels and just waiting for it to pass but episode 22 plunges us straight back into the very dynamic world of heroes and villains and this episode is much better for it. Kapodaco and I share our thoughts below, but we’d love to hear what you thought of the latest episode.

Kapodaco:

Well, what do you know? It really was the Provisional Exam arc bogging down all the potential quality. The moment it ended, I became intrigued with the series again.

First and foremost, not only did Todoroki and Wind Guy™ not pass, but Bakugo didn’t pass, either. I feel like justice…
