This week’s episode picks up right were last week’s left off. Which, for some reason, comes to a surprise to me. I just assumed we’d just straight to the festival, but we get to see the aftermath of the fight between Gentle and Deku instead as some of the things I said about the characters last week come to some kind of fruition here.
Man, where did that past week go. I was half way through writing a review of episode 84 and then before I know it, 85 is already out. But if there were any two episodes to double up, these would be as a good couple as I was going to get, as they feature the beginning and the conclusion of the battle between Deku and Gentle Criminal.
My Hero does the slice of life I enjoy better than nearly any other shonen show I can think of. As we enter the perpetration for the much talked about school festival, we’re introduced to a new villain who seems to be intent on gatecrashing this school event, with all the flair and drama befitting a man called Gentle Criminal.
