I’ve not been reviewing the latest reason of My Hero Academia episode by episode as I had originally planned on doing before it started. But with the conclusion of this most recent story arc featuring the Yakuza and the villain Overhaul I felt like it was time to voice some of the feeling I have been having about the series thus far.
The following two entries in this list are the window into my soul. They’re the kind of shows that made me want to watch anime in the first place. To this day, they’re the kinds of shows I still get excited about and why I wanted to write about anime at all on my blog. Sure, it’s not high art or saying anything especially important, but at the end of this day, this is a form of entertainment, something many people who talk about things online seem to forget. And these shows I need to talk about now have entertained the crap outta me.
Cut from the same cloth, these last two shows well probably surpise nobody. All you have to do is look at what I’ve been writing about this past year in my tag list and you already know what’s going onto this list today and tomorrow. I’ll still keep some empty anticipation though and make you click the link below to reveal the title card for the show though.
It occurs to me that I haven’t spent any time on my blog taking about My Hero Academia, despite the fact that it’s become one of my favourite anime of the last few years. As a shameless enjoyer of Shonen, Boku no Hīrō Academia is the perfect example of keeping a genre close to its tropes, but just doing them all incredibly well.
I binged through the first two series last summer before catching up having having to do the agonising weekly wait to see the final few episodes of the second series. The series won me over with its earnest characters, a seemingly never ending escalation of hype and apparent high stakes for every little thing that happened. Season 3 steps back from that slightly, like it’s settled into its own skin, but it doesn’t make me love the show any less.
