Edit Synopsis As summer arrives for the students at UA Academy, each of these superheroes-in-training puts in their best efforts to become renowned heroes.
They head off to a forest training camp run by UA's pro heroes, where the students face one another in battle and go through dangerous tests, improving their abilities and pushing past their limits. However, their school trip is suddenly turned upside down when the League of Villains arrives, invading the camp with a mission to capture one of the students. Boku no Hero Academia 3rd Season follows Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, an ambitious student training to achieve his dream of becoming a hero similar to his role model—All Might.
Being one of the students caught up amidst the chaos of the villain attack, Deku must take a stand with his classmates and fight for their survival. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Overall 3 Story 0 Animation 0 Sound 0 Character 0 Enjoyment 0 I always considered mha for a mediocre enjoyable show. 60 episodes in and we had very little story progression and world building which is dissapoiting.
Season 3 started of with a typical generic school trip. Few attempts of comedy here and there that simply didn't land. Other than that some todoroki development and deku vs muscular build up were only things worth seeing first 3 episodes.
Characters training was much longer than it should have been. Wasted some time imo. Deku vs muscular fight was okay. The animation was great but again it was so generic and it lacked both creativity and choreography.
No tactics used at all. It was just a flashy fight with 2 dudes punching each other with fists. I know, i know you are gonna say "BuT MHa fIgHTs aRe ABouT StorY" so is almost every fight in anime, that doesn't mean it should be mindless.
On the plus side deku got some development. Am i the only one that noticed how repetitive mha is? Season 1 is basically characters training, villains invading season 2 is trounament arc, villains invading and finally season 3 is characters training and villains invading. There is nothing new. There is no bigger, deeper plot to get invested in to. Like always bunch of dumb villains that lack motivation appeared and i simply didn't care for them.
There was that tsundare girl, that discount dead pool guy, mindless musuclar who is just killing for the sake of killing, that discount stain guy that was like a lizard or something, dude with big lips and uhhh what was his name again?
That dude that's obviously todorokis brother or something. It's so predictable. On the plus side one thing that mha does good is the character desgins.
Despite them looking goofy at times. At least they are memorable even tho the characters themselves aren't. Long story short students fight some villains and bakugo gets captured even tho bakugo clearly could have prevented it but he didn't because. he is a angry brat that wants to be acnkowladged. Next up is AFO vs All might fight. Again some good animation even tho there were some errors.
We still don't know anything about AFO's motivation like with almost every vilalin in this show. He was supposed to be badass and his OST was supposed to be scary but it just wasn't. Not to mention his generic quirk. All might vs AFO was the peak of the season tho. It told the great story and it was good for all mights character. But we all knew all might was gonna win and he wins the most generic way possible. With final boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19.
The fight was dull from the actaul fighting perspective. This show is just too safe. There is no suspenese, we just know good guys are gonna win. Even when bakugo was kidnapped he got retrieaved at the end. Everyone was just injured and they recovered.
Even tho all might is my favorite character, his death would have made this show so much better. Second arc was sooooooooo boring even tho it was filled with action. There was literally almost nothing big happening. There was a whole episode dedicated to rooms lmao. And again we get to the generic tournament arc with too many boring side cahracters that i don't care for. Mha is introducing too many, too fast. Side characters are very forgetable and the development is unievene.
Even tho the cast is better than the terrible plot of this show it's still highly overrated. Too many bland characters with generic motivations and view points. Bakugo vs Deku was actaully good. I like bakugo more now even tho i still think his peronality is forced. Like why do you scream so much? I get that people had high expectations for you since birth but why so much? Tone it down ffs lmao.
He is literally yelling at everyone around himself. It makes his personality unbelievable. The fight itself had the best choreography out of the 3. The animation was great too. "The big 3" was pretty overhyped. In temrs of character designs they are basically naruto, sasuke and sakura.
Mirio is only one with potential out of the 3. The art style this season is basic like always. All in all mha is enjoyable show with terrible plot. This season has very little story progression.
The show itself doesn't stand out in any way. P.S people are giving mha too much credit for executing the generic tropes well. It doesn't do it THAT well. It's a overstatement. Overall 4 Story 3 Animation 5 Sound 5 Character 4 Enjoyment 3 (SPOILER WARNING FOR HUNTER X HUNTER, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, AND NARUTO + SHIPPUDEN) Season 3 is bad.
It's the point where you finally realize that all the potential the earlier seasons flashed was no more than just that: unrealized potential. And all the problems with the writing weren’t blips, they become a constant problem that deflates the tension and drama in every arc.
Every time Deku we’re told Deku is risking his body only for him to be fine after a day in the hospital, every time a villain is hyped up only for them to lose while barely accomplishing anything, every time stakes are established and then retreated from immediately.
It all starts to add up. Decline of Visuals 1 Now, one thing that’s important to note is that the decline of the MHA anime is not entirely due to Horikoshi’s writing. A fair amount of blame should be attributed to Studio Bones, as well.
I complimented the show based on how there was a lot more effort than I remember in season 1, and the reason I was surprised by that is because of how low the quality of visuals is in seasons 3 and 4. MHA’s visuals in general have never been that sharp (especially in terms of backgrounds), but season 1 did a good job of covering for that by being loose and creative with the visuals. That is no longer the case. The visuals are flat and the tone is overly stiff. Which uh, is a lot less fun to watch.
And if you’re not enjoying what you’re watching, you tend to be less engaged. And when you’re not engaged by what’s in the foreground, you start to zone out and look at the backgrounds out of boredom. At which point, you start to notice how cheap-looking and shoddily thrown together the backgrounds in this show look.
You’ll notice the same tree copy and pasted over and over again, stale coloring, buildings with no style or personality put into how they’re drawn, and sometimes you can’t even tell what you’re looking at.
(I’d put a screenshot of a scene from episode 53 like I did on AL, but MAL’s decrepit review interface doesn’t allow for that. So instead, you get homework. Go to episode 53 at 9:00 and look at the wide shot of the city.) This is supposed to be an establishing shot of the city. What the hell is this? Looks like a bunch of digital garbage. (Now go to S3E53 at 4:00. AL has image embedding in their reviews btw. And video embedding! And proper formatting! Go read my review over there!
@Bubblesssssss) What the hell are those things in the background even supposed to be? Forest Training Camp Arc The first two arcs of season 3 are the forest training camp arc and class raid arcs, and they are both very bad. So bad that season 3 (and really, the whole series) never recovers from it. What you realize while watching these arcs is that all the bad aspects of Horikoshi’s writing thus far aren’t going to go away: the problem has actually gotten much worse and is deflating any potential drama and tension for new arcs.
The Forest Training Camp arc isn’t as bad as the Class Raid arc, but…its still bad and starts season 3 off on a very bad note. Most of why I dislike this arc is the emergence of Horikoshi’s writing becoming…lazy.
The problems that pop up in the Class Raid arc are recurring issues that have spun out of control, but The Forest Training Camp arc started to make me question if he even had a plan for where the story is going. Here’s a brief summary: Students go on a class trip to train. Deku meets Kota, a kid who lost his parents and hates heroes as a result. Villains attack, Pixie Bob is injured, Deku fights this muscle guy and beats him, Bakugo gets kidnapped, arc end. There’s a lot of dumb shit all over the place here, but let’s start with the villain’s reason for the raid: “To make them see that their peace is resting in our hands” S3E41 13:10 What the fuck does that mean?
Something I’ve noticed while re-watching is with the villains, you kind of have to ignore what they say at times to make the writing coherent. Like with Stain when he says that money and fame worshippers are ruining hero society, despite there being sort of 1 example of each that fit that description even existing. What he does in the alley though, points to a more coherent ideology. Iida ignored an injured hero because he was too busy trying to get revenge on Stain for his brother.
That selfishness and inability to control his emotions is bad and holds Iida back. You gave me an example of something Stain opposes directly and showed me rather than told me, excellent. And then you have this shit. I don’t know what the fuck “make them see that their peace is resting in our hands" means. That’s boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19, vague nonsense. Later on, they explain that they want to kidnap Bakugo and try to show him that there are options other than being a hero.
So why not just say that to begin with? You want to kidnap students to convert them to your cause. It conveys your motivations better than whatever the hell “make them see that their peace is resting in our hands” is.
Anyways. Most of the villain attack is standard MHA stuff. Villains attack, have mixed results, students counterattack. Blah blah blah. The real garbage starts in the scene where Pixie Bob gets hurt. Here, Chatora starts talking about how the villains are bad because they hurt Pixie Bob because she’s apparently thinking about getting married, something that was never brought up until now.
This is lazy, last minute garbage. Last-minute characterization is something I really don’t care much for, and MHA had done well to avoid this sort of lazy writing. This is literally just Horikoshi saying “Hey I know you boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 got to know this character, but you should feel something because I’m abruptly telling you she’s getting married”.
There’s no emotional anything here. I don’t know how important marriage is to her, I don’t know who she’s getting married to, I don’t know anything about this woman! If this plot line had been developed ahead of time (aka Horikoshi had scenes where we saw her doting over her fiancé, or just scenes of the 2 together in general), then there would be grounds to put this line here. Because then, the show would have actually earned it.
But you can’t do it like this. This is lazy. We’ll get back to this problem in part 4, as it (like the other parts of Horikoshi’s writing) snowballs out of control. And then we get to the big fight from this arc, Deku vs muscle guy.
I don’t care what his name is. His design is bad, he’s badly written, his only notable feature is how muscley he is. He’s muscley guy. Before getting to the fight, we need to talk about Kota. His parents are heroes that were killed in the line of duty, and he now he hates heroes.
Which is whatever. Generic backstory, depends on what you do with it. It's fine by itself. But what I dislike about this is Deku’s reasons for wanting to help him. The show treats Kota as though his opinion about heroes is…wrong. Something that needs to be corrected. This is an annoying part of the way MHA is written, and is yet another problem that spirals out of control in seasons 3 and 4. On its own it isn’t a big deal. But when you take into consideration the fact that Horikoshi very clearly wants to write villains who represent problems with society, but at the same time is unwilling to write flawed superheroes or hold accountable UA or his society’s heroes, and also seems to treat all criticism of the heroes as wrong…like which is it?
You can’t have both, they clash with each other. So obviously, this muscley guy is not a very good villain. Kota’s backstory with his parents was already pretty token, but did you really have to make muscley guy the same guy that killed his parents? That’s like the lamest twist ever. It was the first thing I thought of when I was guessing plot twists they might do in this arc. Never mind how infinitesimally small the odds of that same guy coming to attack this particular training camp, and just so happening to show up right in front of Kota and Deku are.
It’s a boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 thing to try to make a twist to begin with. It’s too obvious. Then you have the fight itself.
Which is…whatever. There’s some neat animation here I guess, but overall I don’t care much. The villain is bad, the drama is bad, and there aren’t really any stakes with Deku injuring his body because I know after the arc is over, he’ll sit in a hospital bed for a bit and then be fine.
Speaking of. Before we get to the episodes after the forest training camp arc, I'd like to highlight one thing Deku says during this fight: From E42 15:40: "a hero's job is to turn the lip service into reality" Remember this quote.
I'll refer back to it a lot going forward. Fake Stakes 1 The episodes between the end of the Forest training camp arc and the class raid are important, in that they highlight the one problem with MHA that it has proven unable to escape from: Horikoshi is deathly afraid of taking risks.
His writing is among the stalest and safest in a popular shounen I’ve ever seen. He’s overly attached to his characters, he never provides long-lasting consequences for the actions of his characters, and he seems terrified of moving a single piece out of place.
There are 2 categories of this I’d like to highlight here: UA The first problem area when it comes to fakes stakes is this ongoing storyline with the media's criticism of UA and their failures to protect their students.
Or rather, it’s just Horikoshi pretending there will be consequences for the students getting into trouble for both UA and the students, but then immediately retreating from it because actual consequences would be hard to write. Anyways, we're gonna establish the details of this subplot that are important, and I'll explain why this part of the story is a problem in a bit. In season 1, the media manages to sneak onto school grounds after Shigaraki blows up the wall. This one isn't as notable as the others, but I just wanted to point it out because in this instance, UA couldn't even keep reporters off their school grounds.
Maybe a wall and sensor isn't a great security system in a world where nearly everyone has superpowers, yeah? You think maybe someone might try to just jump over the wall or blow it up? Anyways, then you have the villains that attack students at the end of season 1. Also does not reflect well on the school, and they receive criticism for it. This looks even worse when you consider the people that got in were proven to be morons. That's basically the subplot.
The media goes after UA for letting the students fall into danger, and that's uh. That's it. As for the students: In episode 31, the police guy tells Deku and friends that they and the other heroes are going to receive strict punishment.and then they don't do that at all.
Not a huge deal they don't follow through here. But next time they get into trouble, there needs to be actual punishment for the students or UA. This could just be to establish stakes for the future. All you gotta do is follow through next time.
There you boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19, that's how all that.stuff is setup. The important part of this plotline is that somewhere along the line, the show has to be able to establish real consequences for UA for not protecting its students, and for the students of class A for getting into trouble.
And.we'll get to that in a minute. Deku Destroying His Body Another recurring problem is Deku's body. The threat of Deku damaging his body so badly he can't be a hero anymore is established pretty early. It’s a good way of keeping One for All from feeling overpowered, and a constant source of drama during Deku's fights.
At least, it would be. If Horikoshi was willing to actually commit to it. Knowing that Deku could permanently damage his body so badly he could never walk again is an interesting subplot, but it can't be if every time he risks his body, he stays in the hospital for a day and then he's fine again.
This is, again, something that isn't a struggle for other popular battle shounens: We're back to Naruto and Hunter x Hunter again.
In Naruto, when Rock Lee uses his Hidden Lotus ability, it has very similar risks to Deku's ability, with Lee's being a bit more extreme the further he goes with it. Anyways, when we see Deku and Rock Lee overuse their ability to try to win, we do see them exhausted, crippled, etc. But it’s what the writers do after the fight ends that separate the two.
Rock Lee's body is torn up really badly after his fight with Gaara, and they tell Guy that it's likely he'll never fight again. But then, they follow through on that. He is absent from combat for the next 76 episodes, but it is a source of ongoing drama as we see his recovery process and struggle to come to terms with the possibly giving up his entire way of life. And then, several arcs later when he pops out to fight Kimimaro, you get a huge adrenaline rush.
This happens for 3 reasons: one, Rock Lee was gone for so long. Two, the last time we saw him he was in the most entertaining fight of the show thus far. And most importantly three, we saw his recovery process and knew how hard it was for him. So when he jumps out here, we know that his recovery is complete, he's back as a ninja, and we finally get to see him fight again. Great moment, and a great example of establishing stakes for a fight and actually sticking with them.
In Hunter x Hunter, Gon loses control of his emotions after he finds out Kite is dead. His anger leads him to use "everything" to kill Pitou.
But since Gon is nowhere near strong enough to even fight Pitou, he has to sacrifice.well, everything. Based on what we know about nen and the way it works, seeing him suddenly obtain this much power means the amount he sacrificed is so great he will probably die.
Okay, so our main character has taken on a colossal risk and the stakes are his sacrifice took a massive toll on his body, and he could die. How do we follow up on this? (This is where I would post the screenshot of Gon’s fucked up hand. But since MAL doesn't allow image embeds like AL does, go to the scene in episode 145 of Hunter x Hunter where Gon gets healed and look at his hand when its getting unwrapped by Killua.) This is what it looks like to create stakes and stick with them.
Gon nearly dies, and Killua has to go through tons of hoops to save him. And while yes, Gon does recover. He is completely absent from the manga for the following arcs. No, really. The protagonist is out of the story for several major story arcs. He can't use nen because of what he did to beat Pitou. Kurapika is boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 main character during the prince succession arc, which is the current arc.
Togashi was willing to take that risk to make it clear that when he declares stakes, no matter how great, he will follow through. As a result, when they say something like "we could die”, I believe it regardless of who its referring to. And yet with Deku, we are told time and time again that he is risking his body by being reckless, and every single time he goes to the hospital, the nurse heals him, and he's fine again.
There are no stakes here. Deku has the strongest plot armor on I've ever seen. This isn't even that hard to fix either.
Here's how you do it: Have the nurse heal him a couple times, then have the villains kill her; cutting Deku off from having an insta-heal every time he's reckless with his body. He will then be forced to actually deal with the damage he's doing to his body, and for the first time in the series actually following through with the stakes it established.
It would also ground Deku, preventing him from just doing whatever he wants with no consequences. But killing the nurse lady would be a risky choice to make, and we can't have that! Or alternatively, stop reminding us of this plot point if boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 refuse to do anything with it. If you're gonna keep saying he's risking his body, then show the stakes! Have him damage his body so badly that he's absent for an arc. Naruto did it with Rock Lee. And Hunter x Hunter is doing it with Gon right now.
The other guys don't seem to have a problem with it, and if MHA is as great as people say it is, Horikoshi shouldn't either. Class Raid Arc Now. The reason I brought up all of that now is because the episodes between the Forest Training Camp arc and the Class Raid arc are so fucking stupid, and it's because of the issues with the writing I just talked about.
Deku suffers colossal damage to his body. He is up and walking immediately after. The heroes say that they're going to keep a closer eye on the students, and LITERALLY THE FUCKING NIGHT AFTER THEY SAY THIS, THEY LET THE STUDENTS SNEAK OUT.
You even have the stupid fucking press conference the teachers put on, acknowledging all the criticism UA has rightfully gotten for putting its students in danger.
AND AS THEY ARE SAYING THIS, NO ONE IS WATCHING THE INJURED STUDENTS AT ALL, SO THEY ALL SNEAK OUT. Do you remember this line I mentioned earlier? E42 15:40 "a hero's job is to turn the lip service into reality" This is My Hero Academy summarized in a single fucking line. Say you're gonna do one thing, and never follow through. It constantly contradicts the message of its own main theme because of its incompetent and lazy writing.
"Yes, we're taking the criticism seriously and are making changes" as they are letting the students sneak out because no one bothered to keep an eye on them. Deku is threatened with losing his arms, and yet THE LITERAL DAY AFTER THE ATTACK, he sneaks out with the other students to go get Bakugo back! Ridiculous. And Iida understandably objects to this stupid ass plan, but since Horikoshi refuses to take a risk like slowing down for a bit to enforce the stakes he just established, Iida backs down and goes with them.
This was the point where I could no longer deny the truth: My Hero Academy is a big piece of shit. Horikoshi is unable to establish any drama or stakes or tension due to his overly safe and lazy writing, and Studio Bones' effort in its production has gone down significantly. It had another chance, though. It had one last chance to fix its boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 problem.
This could have done a lot to ease my growing irritation with the series. But again, it blew it. All for One, and Why the Villains Need to Kill So, a growing issue I have had with MHA is the villains. Like yes, they're bad. If we're keeping track of only the ones we've seen so far, Shigaraki is an idiot (allegedly on purpose) and Stain doesn't accomplish much on-screen.
That's in terms of writing though. Another big problem I have is that they never kill anyone. You see, when you have a problem with weak villains like MHA does, a great way to establish a new villain as a threat would be to show them killing a hero we know on screen. Not in the past, not telling us they kill people; actually showing them kill someone.
This ties into my problem of Horikoshi being overly attached to his characters and not wanting to make sacrifices or take risks with them. Because there are tons of expendable ones.
Anyways, the reason I bring this up now is because the class raid arc is where we are introduced to All for One, the Ying to All Might's Yang and supposedly the strongest villain there is. He has dozens of quirks stored away. He can use multiple quirks at once. This guy is a FORCE.
So naturally, I'm expecting him to have a big impact in his first appearance. After all, All for One is THE GUY. Finally, a competent villain! This is gonna be great! .Oh. Oh. (I would show screenshots of All for One getting punched and arrested here like I did on AL but MAL review interface lmao) All for One is disappointing for a number of reasons, but really All for One being disappointing is a backbreaker itself.
He NEEDED to succeed, and needed to make an impression on the audience. The villains up to this point have been a joke. They also kinda just…always lose. Not every villain can just inflict "psychological" damage to the heroes or whatever.
Its the battle shounen equivalent of a moral victory. That's what Shiggy did in season 1. His raid was a laughable failure that got him ridiculed by the students and All Might. Stain loses without killing anyone in season 2. Dude's name is literally "Stain the Hero Killer" yet we see him kill no one and then he gets arrested. Eventually, a villain needs to actually win. Succeed at their goal, outsmart the heroes, kill someone. Just something, so I can believe for once that there’s some competency to these dumbass villains.
The most dangerous villain in the show has to establish themselves as a threat somehow when they show up. They can't just not kill anyone and get owned. Why? Because it makes them look incompetent, and that has a trickle-down effect on the other villains. You REALLY aren't going to take the other villains seriously. After all, if the biggest, baddest villain isn't allowed to win; if the heroes all have plot armor that can't be penetrated even now. .what threat are the lesser villains?
I see them as a joke now as a result of All for One's boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 appearance. His goal here is to kill All Might here. He does make All Might retire, but whatever.
He still loses and gets captured. This is another moral victory. The best way to shock your audience and establish this guy would be to boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 him boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 down a hero.
It would be great! Hasn't happened before, so it would shock everyone. Horikoshi even has 3 excellent opportunities to do it.
Obviously the preferred choice would be All Might. Him dying in a fight with All for One is a better way of inflicting fear admist uncertainty among the citizens for future arcs than him just retiring.
And it would display vividly the ultimate act of what All Might says is the most important qualification for a hero: The spirit of self-sacrifice. It doesn't have to be him, though. Best Jeanist is incredibly expendable. He just took a massive shot to the gut. Why aren’t you killing him? Gran Torino is old and senile. They're so expendable and yet Horikoshi just.can't.let go of them. You kill Best Jeanist here, and the following fight with All Might suddenly becomes incredible tense. Why?
Because when you kill a hero like that, it firmly establishes the stakes as life and death. Something, that was kinda not established during the season 1 raid, Stain arc from season 2, and the forest training camp arc. And, it would completely shock the audience, thus raising their investment. And that shit is important for a series like MHA. An important principle of being a hero in this series (and for…most battle shounens) is that they boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 fighting for their lives.
As such, its important to establish that the stakes of boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 are well, life and death. This is something I think My Hero Academy is trying to do. But without examples of heroes we know LOSING their lives fighting or just generally, its hard to really say the stakes are that high.
We’re told that people could die, but we’re never shown it. Because all the heroes have plot armor. They aren't allowed to die because they're heroes. Why? Horikoshi is unwilling to take risks. And no, heroes that died before the show starts don't count. Heroes we know and that have been established, that we've seen in the series, dying. That's what it is needed.
This is, again, something writers of other popular battle shounens understand. Let’s knock these down quick, I don’t need a paragraph to explain each: Hunter x Hunter: Everyone Hisoka kills during the Hunter exams: establishes Hisoka as a serious threat and that the Hunter exam is very much life or death, which is very much true.
Ponzu and Pokkle: displays how ruthless and cruel the chimera ants can be. Kite: Juxtaposed with how Kite wiped out an entire squadron with one swing earlier, establishes how unbelievably strong the Royal Guard are.
Those 2 dudes at the beginning of the Zoldyck arc that get killed by Mike: establishes up front how dangerous the Zoldyck manor is. Fullmetal Alchemist: Hughes: this is a message from the Homonculi to the audience and the Elric brothers: if you keep snooping around, we'll kill you.
Basque Grand: makes it clear that Scar can kill any state alchemist if he gets the opportunity and Edward and Alphonse are not safe. Naruto: Jiraiya: establishes Pain as a huge threat. He just killed one of the legendary sanin for fuck’s sake. Gaara mercilessly slaughtering those rain ninja in the forest of death and killing Dosu: establishes deadly stakes for the fight vs Rock Lee and vs Sasuke, respectively.
Orochimaru kills Hirouzen: makes it clear how dangerous he is, and more importantly makes the audience worry about what's going to happen when Sasuke decides to chase after him.
"Oh, shit. that guy killed the hokage. And Sasuke's going to go with him?" Stuff like this sends a message, and its usually pretty good at scaring the audience if they’re invested.
When a villain kills someone, it says “this could happen to one of the protagonists if they aren’t careful”. Killing a character is an amazing way to establish danger, something that MHA sorely lacks at this point due to how shit the villains are and how safe the writing is.
This is especially true here, because it ruins what could be a genuinely great fight. On paper, the way it's set up works. But to once again have no one die and the villain lose despite setting the stakes higher than ever?
That just can't happen here. In Between Arcs 1/Fake Stakes 2 Now hold on just a minute. Because everything I complained about in the Fake Stakes sections immediately comes back again after the All for One vs All Might fight. During the first half of episode 50, All Might yells at Deku for destroying his body and sneaking out even though All Might and the other dumbass teachers weren't watching the students, and thus let it happen.
Also, Deku is fine after all that. Walks away with some bandages. In the second half of episode 50, Deku's mom takes a stand against All Might and UA for continuously allowing them to endanger her son, and threatens to pull Deku out of UA.
This, of course, does not happen. All Might begs and she gives up. The show declares stakes in the form of consequences for a student and UA, and this is again retreated from in the same scene. E42 15:40 "a hero's job is to turn the lip service into reality" Despite episode 50 focusing on the fallout from the class raid for UA and the students, including showing several parents of class A students angry with the school.not one of those parents pulls their kid out.
So, no consequences of any kind for anyone. The most we get is that UA has a dorm system now. Ugh. Later in this same episode, Eraser says that he would've expelled almost all of them if not for All Might's retirement. The fuck does All Might's retirement have to do with anything?
Just expel them. All Might's retirement is just a lazy excuse to not follow through with stakes you yourself established. Stop being lazy and taking shortcuts with the writing. You keep saying you're going to do one thing, and then you don't because you're scared of the risk. As I recall, that seems to contradict what you said earlier: E42 15:40 "a hero's job is to turn the lip service into reality" Provisional Hero License Exam And finally, we have the last arc from season 3.
Like usual, we start with the stakes: S3E53 "the Provisional License Exam has a 50% fail rate" That’s actually pretty intense! Sure hope they don’t immediately retreat from that after the exam like they always do.
Overall, this arc is…bleh. I think its main problem is that it feels like it goes on forever, and due to the repetitive plot structure this just feels like the 10,000,000th exam stage. I don't believe you about the stakes. Deku will be fine no matter what they do. None of this matters. I’m not invested anymore. I think the training camp and Bakugo retrieval arcs were just so bad that the show can't recover now. I am actively irritated with the show. Also, the tone is incredibly tiresome and stiff now.
I miss the loose feel of season 1, where All Might swore in front of Deku and it didn't take itself as seriously as a heart attack. Seeing the number one hero in the world, the symbol of peace, swear in front of a young kid is hilarious.
Made you feel like at least part of his hero persona was a front that he put on. As such, he felt a bit more human. I liked that side of him. I don't really like him at all now. He's boring. This exam stage in particular is really fucking boring. They're doing a little with making the people they're supposed to be rescuing assholes, but it isn't enough. Fake Stakes Oh, and guess what? Just like I said, they waved off the stakes.
Those who failed can take a 3 month course to get their provisional licenses anyways. Since this is now a problem I can't ignore, I'll address it here. One of the biggest offenders of fake stakes in this series is the exam stages. Horikoshi has a crippling habit of creating stakes for the students during exams, only to backtrack as quickly as possible once the arc is over.
For example: In episode 5, Aizawa threatened to expel the student that scored the lowest on an entrance exam. This is quickly retreated from the next episode. Not a boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 deal that they backed away from it here. Just make sure you follow through next time, that way I can believe there's actual stakes to these exams.
In episode 38, the students are threatened with having to go to summer school if they fail. This is again, retreated from after the arc ends. Now it’s a problem. Because twice now, you have declared there to be stakes via consequences for failing or performing poorly in an exam, and both times you failed to follow through. There will be more examples later. So, why is this bad? Because 1, I don't believe the show when it tells me there will be consequences when someone fails. Because there boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 are.
Be it the students getting into trouble, UA failing to protect its students, or something as simple as student failing an exam. You always retreat from it afterwards. And because of that, I'm less engaged during exams. After all, there are no stakes because Horikoshi insists on giving plot armor to everyone in class A. And 2, because its supposed to be difficult to get through UA, right? After all, they tell us that as early as episode 4. Like a lot of things the show does, this is telling without showing.
The show will tell us it is difficult to get through UA, but it really isn't at all. The school bends over backwards constantly to keep students from failing. This is not really something that should be a struggle for a battle shounen at all, at least if you're a writer that's willing to take risks. Want some examples? Let’s look at the Hunter exam from Hunter x Hunter and the chuunin exams from Naruto.
These are basically the same thing as the exams the characters go through in UA. To become a pro hunter/ninja, you have to pass these exams. Naruto and Hunter x Hunter want you to know that these tests are difficult and making it through is a significant is a huge feat.
So how do Kishimoto and Togashi support it? Uh, by having people fail. A LOT of entrants fail in both the chuunin exams and Hunter exams. And not scrubs, either. One of the main characters fails the first time in Hunter x Hunter, and most of the entrants that you end up spending most of the show with end up boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 in Naruto. As for as numbers go: Most of the characters lose before the finals, including main characters (Sakura, Ino, Rock Lee, Kiba, Hinata, Choji, Tenten).
Killua fails in Hunter x Hunter. if you look at insignificant characters, all but 7 failed the hunter exam. 400+ examinees failed. In the chuunin exams, hundreds failed as well. There were only 5 genin remaining when the Konoha Crush interrupts the exams. (Failing is a bit different in Naruto. You can lose in the finals and still become a chuunin). Why does this matter? Because part of the point of having these exams in the first place is to make it clear how difficult it is to become a shinobi/hunter.
People need to fail out so 1, the threat of characters failing is established. 2, to establish stakes. and 3, establish the extreme level of difficulty to accomplish the goal, for the purposes of making the task seem daunting (which will be a constant source of drama), and to make those that have accomplished it (in this case the pro heroes) worthy of respect for having reached it.
Hunter x Hunter and Naruto wanted their exam stages to seem difficult and intense, so they supported it by being willing to have characters fail. It’s really that simple. Kishimoto and Togashi as writers are willing to take those risks to make their manga better. Horikoshi is not. Class B Another example of fake exam stakes that annoys me is how they keep telling us that if class A trips up, students from class B could replace them. This is another good source of drama, and adds even more stakes for the class A students.
But like all the other stakes, the show never follows through with it. I really wish they would too, because there are some weak characters in class A I really wish would get cut out. Like the animal guy, and the tail guy, and especially the tape guy.
He's boring and his power is boring. Get rid of him. I would love for Horikoshi to take a risk and move one of these boring dorks out for someone like Shinso, but Horikoshi is again too afraid to move even a single character out of place for some boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19. So once again, you say this one thing will happen, and then retreat from it afterwards. You never follow through with what you say you’re gonna do, which, again, contradicts this: ***E42 15:40 "a hero's job is to turn the lip service into reality" Deku vs Bakugo Capping off season 3, we have Deku vs Bakugo.
And look. I know people think this fight is amazing. And…I mean it could be. If it was organic to the narrative, had stakes, and wasn’t forced into a place in the story it doesn’t belong. The problem I have with this fight is it doesn't represent a moment where past and/or current differences and philosophies collide naturally due to the narrative.
The show is pausing its story to have this fight. Deku vs Bakugo is MHA's version of Naruto vs Sasuke. But with Naruto vs Sasuke, it was very much the right time for that fight, and there were real stakes.
Sasuke wants to go off and join Orochimaru to gain power, but Naruto knows and we as an audience know that Orochimaru only wants to use Sasuke as a vessel to switch bodies. And while you might think Sasuke can handle himself, …we watched Orochimaru kill a hokage earlier.
(One of the benefits of killing off characters btw). So we know he is a serious threat to kill Sasuke. That's the kind of stakes and emotional drama you need for a fight between main characters. Which is what I think this fight lacks. Granted, there isn't really a rule to how you write a fight like this. And I'm not really advocating for it to just do what Naruto did. It isn't a bad fight. I just think you need a little more here.
Something to be lost for Deku when he's defeated. And have it be written more organically into the story, rather than shoving it awkwardly between arcs. In Between Arcs 2/End of Season 3 We end season 3 with episode 62. The first half of it is looking into the idea of how All Might’s retirement is affecting normal citizens. This is, of course, a very good idea. As the show hasn’t really put any effort into humanizing the citizens so we gave a shit when villains attack and put their lives in danger.
It also is the start of the idea that Endeavor doesn’t really work as an All Might replacement. He lacks the charisma and people just don’t react to him the same way.
It’s…interesting. And they follow up on it later. Uh, good stuff. The second half is more fake stakes for Deku’s body and consequences after his fight with Bakugo. Deku is fine, again. Deku and Bakugo broke curfew, destroyed a bunch of shit, fought, and their only punishment is they have to clean more. Really? After sneaking out during the class raid? Have the teachers at UA learned absolutely nothing this entire time? Big three arrives, season over. Overall 7 Story 7 Animation 9 Sound 7 Character 9 Enjoyment 9 Before this, I would recommend reading my reviews of the first two seasons of Boku no Hero Academia.
Many details that explain my opinion on this series in a broader sense are already covered there. This season picks up where the previous season left off, with the students preparing to go to an inevitably doomed summer training camp. The plot takes a much darker tone this season, with The League of Villains newly-emboldened by Stain's actions in season 2, and full of fresh faces.
The first arc of this season gives the new villains a chance to show off what they're made of, and set up the league as a more immediate, tangible threat. Without spoiling too much, the following arc goes even further into developing The League of Villains, finally introducing their leader and revealing his true plan. It also sets up for a changing of the guard for both the heroes and the villains, building towards Deku and Shigaraki becoming arch-enemies in the vein of their mentors.
While these two arcs excel due to their establishing a greater cast of villains and creating a sense of genuine threat, the following arc doesn't fare quite as well. The Provisional License Exam arc doesn't serve much purpose in the overarching plot other than to get the story from point A to point B. While there is some exploration of Todoroki's grudge against his father, this isn't anything we haven't already covered elsewhere.
Ultimately, without it being as firmly rooted in the emotional journey of its characters, it has a lot less substance than the other arcs, and feels awkward and transitionary. This is exacerbated by some uncharacteristically bad pacing for this series, with two filler episodes sandwiched into it along with some added scenes and dialogue, presumably included to make sure that the season ended at a good point rather than smack in the middle of another arc.
While one of the two filler episodes (technically three, but the first was a start-of-season recap) follows a similar idea to season 2's surprisingly good filler episode, in covering events that happened offscreen to secondary 1-A characters, the other is a completely unnecessary waste of time that accomplishes little more than plugging the movie.
And even the better of the two fails to repeat the same success of season 2's filler, boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 because while the previous one came as a breather episode inbetween story arcs, this one directly interrupted the plot in progress. It also doesn't help that Tsuyu is a better character than Yaoyorozu (fight me, nerds). The writing is also noticeably worse during filler, in particular for Uraraka and Bakugo. Uraraka gets a lot of screentime in additional scenes, but almost all of her dialogue in these scenes revolves around her uncertainty around her feelings for Deku, something we had already established and which didn't need repeating ad nauseam.
Bakugo on the other hand plays up all his worst character traits in the movie-plugging filler episode, but where his recklessness in canon is usually due to his anger and frustration with Deku, here it's pure idiocy.
Once the exam is over, however, the quality immediately picks back up. And whatever disservice the filler may have done for Bakugo, it's easily forgotten after he gets some long overdue character development.
While Bakugo was never a bad character, he wasn't a likeable one either. But Bakugo's character arc has been long in process - with his entire worldview being flipped on its head the moment Deku gained a quirk, Bakugo has been challenged with the thought that he's no longer superior to everyone around him - a belief that he had always taken for granted until then.
This season finally takes this setup and brings it to a conclusion redeeming an oft-maligned character in the process. Overall, while the quality of this season does take a noticeable dip during the provisional license exam, even then it isn't bad - just underwhelming in comparison. Outside of this arc, it matches (and in places exceeds) the benchmark the previous season set.
And for any mistakes the series may make, it still manages to retain investment in both the ever-evolving setting and its quirky (pun not intended) ensemble cast, the latter in particular benefiting not only from more character arcs, drama, and development, but from increased downtime letting us see more of these characters outside of their roles in the plot, fleshing out more of their personalities and character dynamics.
With the series ending on a foreboding note, Hero Academia promises great things to come - but for now, Hero Academia 3 is an impressive, if uneven, entry in the series.
Story/Plot: 7/10 Characters: 9/10 Animation/Art: 9/10 Sound: 7/10 Overall: 7/10 For Fans Of: One Piece, Naruto Overall 7 Story 7 Animation 7 Sound 7 Character 7 Enjoyment 8 Superhero stories feels like it’s been populating the entertainment industry from these recent years.
Marvel and DC successfully adapted many of these superhero tales with huge fanbases. The CW Network have aired shows with a large following like The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. My Hero Academia always reminds me that it has a place with its own set of superheroes and villains. With that in mind, I was pretty ecstatic about the return of My Hero Academia. The third season does a bit of recapping at first to get viewers comfortable with its characters, story setting, and general concepts.
As someone who has been following both the anime and manga, I knew what was to expect as the series is structured with story arcs. From the first half of the show, we follow Class 1-A as the first semester at U.A has concluded. Known as the “Forest Training Camp Arc”, it details the events of our young heroes participating in a training camp.
They are supervised by a hero group known as the Pussycats but incidents happen that leads the arc into quite a chaos. It’s no surprise either as My Hero Academia likes to build tension and make story with its characters. From the Training Camp arc, we are introduced to a character named Kota who has a distasteful view towards heroes.
The show explores his reasons for this while also adapts how he begins to change after meeting certain people. Enter Deku. He is pretty much symbolic for what Kota detests because of his values and desire to become a hero. The arc details of what it really means of being a hero and opening his eyes to reality.
Moving on, it’s also clear that the series has dangerous adversaries for the heroes to face. The League of Villains has been teased from season 2 and in this season, they make themselves known with malicious intentions.
Their core members exposes the dangers our heroes faces but they also have a hidden agenda. That brings into the question of a guy named Katsuki Bakugo. You’d remember him as the arrogant guy who always strives to be the best with a huge ego. From this season, you’ll also see what it means to be a hero from his point of view. Nonetheless, I think there may be an overemphasis on the idea of making heroes.
Every episode and arc dedicates an immense amount of time to such concepts that sometimes, I wonder if there’s just too much. I say this because after a certain amount of episodes, the storytelling feels a bit redundant without much development. Heroism becomes too symbolic even in the case of All Might.
On the contrary, one could also mention that All Might is a symbol of being a real hero. He represents courage, integrity, peace, and self-sacrifice. The apex of the show has him battle out against a powerful enemy from the past that draws out perhaps one of the most important episodes of the franchise. While still overemphasizing the idea of heroism, it’s significant enough to prove what being a hero is all about.
Meanwhile, the series still has its sense of humor. There exists many moments in the show that offers to delivery comedy ranging from Mineta’s ridiculous perverted antics to an episode about checking out everyone’s rooms. Bringing back to the main plot, the second half of the show features the hero license exams and internship arc together. It now transcends from young heroes to take their next step in following their dreams.
New characters are introduced while familiar ones are bought back together to add to the drama. It also adds bits of tense rivalry between certain characters that may or may not be pleasing to remember. But I must say, preparing these heroes in such a way feels like the pacing could have been improved. I’m not a big fan for the latter half of the show as most of those episodes didn’t make much of an impact. Even in terms of personal enjoyment, I find myself losing interest when watching Deku, Bakugo, Momo, Todoroki, Enji, Tenya, Ochaco, or others compete to earn their spot.
Some of the new characters like Mei did occasionally spark my interest but nonetheless felt underwhelming. What about the new characters like the ones from Shiketsu High School? To me, they’re unique individually but lacks development and isn’t well crafted enough for true appeal. I’m not going to lie, it felt like the show sometimes has too many characters in a story arc at once and doesn’t really bring out their true potentials.
Speaking of which, I guess you may be asking if character relationships develop further in this season. It definitely proves itself being able to capitalize on the complex relationship such as with Deku and Bakugo, Deku and All Might, or Deku and Koda.
But for other characters like Ochaco, they really take a pitfall. There’s obvious romance that blooms from her towards Deku but the season acts more like a ship tease with no true hope of sailing sail.
Never say never though, right? Just not this season. Coming back to this franchise definitely reminded of the Shounen Jump action I was looking for. A superhero action series like this isn’t complete without its colorful character cast and their action roles. It offers all sort of characteristics where every hero or villain is unique.
However, it may be noticable that some episodes dropped in quality compared to previous seasons. Yoshihiko Umakoshi worked on a variety of roles from previous seasons ranging from character designs, chief animation director, and key animation. In this season, he’s absent as a role of animation director. That doesn’t mean the third season fell apart though because in some of the more climatic episodes, there’s definitely high quality animation. The explosiveness and energy of the fighting scenes from some of the more important episodes really are worth praising.
There’s also the dynamic character motions with emotional content that adds more value to many scenes this season. There’s even environmental physics and other background animation that are worth paying attention to.
To me, I think My Hero Academia Season 3 started off a bit slow but was able to work itself up again to bring these storybook characters to stardom. The familiarity of the soundtrack also brings together moments that you won’t forget. After three seasons of My Hero Academia, I think it’s safe to say that the momentum of this roller-coaster isn’t going to stop for a good while.
Superhero shows often portray characters as exactly what they are – a symbol of justice and peace. While My Hero Academia does continue to follow that concept, it has moments that truly capitalizes on the meaning of this ideology. With more episodes on the way in the future, I still have bright hopes for this franchise. • Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 2 Users • Hunter x Hunter (2011) 2 Users • One Punch Man 2nd Season 1 User • Baki 1 User • Naruto 1 User • Haikyuu!!

At UA Academy, not even a boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 assault can disrupt their most prestigious event: the school sports festival. Renowned across Japan, this festival is a chance for aspiring heroes to showcase their skills, each to the general public and potential recruiters. Nevertheless, the trail to glory is rarely straightforward, particularly for Izuku Midoriya—whose quirk possesses great raw energy however can also be cripplingly inefficient.
Pitted towards his gifted classmates, reminiscent of the fire and ice wielding Shouto Todoroki, Izuku should make the most of his sharp wits and grasp his surroundings to realize victory and show to the world his worth.
Edit Synopsis UA Academy's Class 1-A has been the focus of a substantial amount of public attention due to the multiple villain attacks they have faced over the past school year. This attention has left Class 1-A's rivals, Class 1-B, feeling quite bitter.
Desiring to prove their skills, they look forward to the opportunity that has been given to them: a set of mock battles between the students of each class. The classes are split into squads of four, each of which is tasked with capturing the other group members. Boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 winner is the group who first secures all of the opposing team. While this sounds simple, a curveball is thrown into the mix with the inclusion of General Course Student Hitoshi Shinsou, who wishes to transfer into the Hero Course.
Despite using his training with Class 1-A's homeroom teacher Shouta "Eraserhead" Aizawa to prove that he's capable of being a real hero, he is still far behind the others due to his lack of experience.
However, Shinsou is determined to overcome this challenge. Thus begins the fiery competition between Class 1-A and 1-B as each tries to prove that they are superior to the other. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Overall 1 Story 1 Animation 1 Sound 1 Character 1 Enjoyment 1 This show got worse? I’m sorry, but what the fuck are you talking about? How is this any different than it has ever been?
Ever since working from home became a thing, my alcoholism has gotten exponentially worse, and I think I’m dying. Sometimes I’ll stand up, and then just find myself on the floor. Other times I can’t tell if I’m hungover, legitimately ill, or if I simply laid down funny and part of my body fell asleep. I’ve been an insomniac for years, but now my circadian rhythm is completely fucked. But the biggest issue is my memory. I’d rather eat nails than try watching this shit sober, so much of this season is foggy to me, but what I do remember about it just makes me want to drown myself in even more liquor.
Most of it is spent going back to interclass tournament arc style bullshit that’s filled with recap footage and feels like filler even when it isn’t. It was dumb, ugly, and I hated every second of it. The villains come back toward the end, but they’re still one-dimensional nobodies with nothing interesting to say about anything, and there’s still zero stakes because, just in case you forgot, “This is the story of how I became the greatest hero!” The artwork and coloration are hideous since Bones only cares about making non-canon movies, the show is 80% still images, the pacing is at once horrendously rushed but at other times painfully slow, and the fights are more panning stills with people screaming and crying at each other like autistic babies.
It looks awful and nothing about it is entertaining. Everything it has ever done, is doing, and will continue to do has been done before, sometimes well, but often terribly, and even in the former case, many such properties are dragged out until they crash and burn or just slowly decline into dogshit.
This series is somehow doing both, but you wouldn’t think so if you listened to its common reception, and I find this rather odd. Apparently, this show began to sully its reputation during season four, and its deterioration has clearly continued, but what’s weird is this has prompted people to start reminiscing about better times, and I don’t understand this at all.
People talk about the good ol’ days, back when this was a show about a powerless kid working hard and overcoming weakness and hardship, whereas now we’re just watching an overpowered Gary Stu with infinite power who’s totally unsympathetic, and therefore it’s worse.
This is not only bizarre considering the quote I used earlier, where season one begins by outright telling us Midoriya is destined to become the world’s greatest hero, but also because the series never embraced these themes to begin with. I know it’s typical to refer to the protagonist of a story as the “hero,” but one should only be celebrated as a hero if they preform heroic feats. People often conflate heroism with classic altruism, being a selfless actor who is concerned more with the needs and wishes of others than with their own, but whereas altruism is more about selflessness no matter the context, actual heroism requires self-sacrifice, putting yourself in harm’s way for the sake of others.
It is for this reason the word is so often associated with the phrase, “war hero,” a solider who loses their life in battle placing valor, duty, and honor above their own personal safety. When it’s revealed All Might wasn’t born with a quirk and had instead been given one by a benefactor, it squanders the underdog story inherent in Midoriya’s determination to become a superhero despite his own powerlessness, but it also makes you wonder. What is even the point of delineating between people with and without quirks when, by this logic, a quirk isn’t even a congenital factor of one’s birth?
The concept of “disadvantage” doesn’t hold in a world where “advantage” is a tangible commodity able to be gifted. This misunderstands the burden of superpowers and what it actually means to have one. The privilege of power materializes only in what you are physically able to do as compared to those without such privilege. Advantage is a blessing, a boon, it makes life easier like advanced technology, modern infrastructure, or even clean boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 does in the developed world, but as seen in Italy’s invasion of Ethiopia (then called Abyssinia) in 1935 or Japan’s invasion of China in 1937, advantage also makes violence and destruction far more devastating when used against the disadvantaged, so as the saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility.” You can’t fuck around like a stupid, self-obsessed teenager if you can also go nuclear, and this is exactly what boils my blood about My Hero Academia.
They insist it’s about heroism, but it’s really about ambition. Mount Lady became a hero for the sole purpose of gaining celebrity status by letting people take pictures of her giant ass in spandex, and Bakugo himself openly admits he's motivated by glory and proving his egotistic sense of superiority. What the hell does any of this have do with heroism? This is vanity and pride. People these days use the word “hero” so glibly, as if “icon” and “hero” have somehow become synonymous, decided by popularity as opposed to the morality of one’s conduct.
It seems the real heroism was the sales we made along the way. Any celebrity or public figure can be christened a hero simply because they’re successful, not because they’re righteous.
Bakugo shouldn’t have been boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 to participate in the hero exam in the first place! He thinks like a villain, and had the exam really been a matter of heroism, he would’ve been rejected the second he opened his mouth. Instead he’s allowed to progress, because as long as he scores high enough in the exam, anyone can.
UA Academy, and by extension this entire show, does not promote heroism. Being accepted by the school because you’re powerful doesn’t give you moral license to call yourself a hero because not only have you preformed nothing heroic, but never does it require you to. It’s therefore not teaching you to be a hero either, because it permits motivations like fame and glory which by definition are completely unheroic. In fact, what the series truly promotes is this bizarre doctrine of social Darwinism.
It contradicts the very themes its terminology attempts to establish while also brainwashing the teenagers and college kids watching it into thinking heroism is something totally selfish. Midoriya’s origin story seems to want to promote the idea that you don’t necessarily have to be powerful to do good, and the desire to do good can itself lead to you becoming powerful (while also being sure to portray said power as an opportunity to do so).
You only need half a mind to see how it utterly fails to do this when All Might simply hands him the power needed to proceed, rendering his entire training montage pointless, but what many don’t realize his how insidious this mindset truly is.
I’m not saying the author of this series is evil—in all likelihood, they’re simply naive—but they fail to understand the social implications of saying the desire for power to achieve goals is intrinsically heroic. If you start with nothing and attempt to become powerful to do good, the probability that your perception of justice is not seated in jealously of the privileged who you feel have done injustice to you is incredibly slim, especially in a world like this where the “have nots” are openly discriminated against by the “haves.” I’m not saying the only vehicle for realism is cynicism, but what I am saying is such a contrived, saccharine sweet, cloyingly optimistic view of the world is simply dishonest.
This show just has a wrongheaded idea of what heroism even means, and this is nowhere near the only toxic message it has to offer. In life, you learn from your mistakes by enduring the shame, defeat, and loss which they bear, and only after examining and confronting these consequence of your own actions and shortcomings do you get back on your feet and win.
My Hero Academia, however, operates by the logic of participation trophies. Nothing is achieved through genuine determination, and anything which is, is undercut by rendering the determination unnecessary through extenuating circumstances which would’ve led to a net gain either way. Even if he loses the tournament, he’s sent to train with the best teacher. Even if the class is defeated by the villains, no one dies, is taken hostage, or seriously endangered.
Even if his ridiculously overpowered ability comes at a physical cost, it’s always healed instantly. In this world of heroes and villains, what defines you isn’t how talented you are or how powerful your quirk is, it’s about hard work, spirit, and the willingness to help others against all odds—only it’s not, because he wouldn’t even be a hero if there wasn’t hidden rules back in the original exam during season one.
It’s portrayed as if Midoriya’s hard work and benevolent intentions were what made him worthy of All Might’s powers after he trained for a few months—fuck anyone who’s been doing so for their entire life, am I right?—but you have to realize he began training only AFTER he was PROMISED THE POWER. His efforts were impure, because his reward was guaranteed. It doesn’t matter how hard he trained, because there was no risk of failure, since his self-serving reward was set in stone before he expended ANY effort.
I mean, it’s not even correct to say he trained to earn the power, as much as it is to say he simply prepared for All Might to gift it to him. All Might is a teacher; this is academic favoritism. The only thing this series ever got right was Stain.
My Hero Academia is generic superhero shlock, but Stain challenged the very moral bankruptcy I’ve spend the last two paragraphs detailing, taking the heroes to task for their hypocritical corporate marketing and corrupt motivations, but after the anticlimactic battle with him ends, everyone ignores the manner in which he subverted their bastardization of heroism, all the thematic underpinnings of his arc are trashed, everyone forgets the incident like nothing happened, and we all go right back to boring school-life nonsense, filler horseshit, and shounen training arcs.
We’re back to square one, and we learned nothing from the only scrap of intrigue in the entire series. Season five is the epitome of everything I’ve bitched about, too, because not only does it uphold and continue to promote these fraudulent ideas of heroism, but from the plot to the characters, it’s also the worst possible incarnation of the anime in every way.
I haven’t kept up with this show for years, so coming back and putting in the hard slave labor of boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 through this season was pure fucking hell.
I’d heard about the broken loli waifu character who could nullify any damage Midoriya did to himself by being carried into battle with him Guilty Crown style, but gosh, who knew every other character would get this preposterous?! So apparently—SPOILERS—Shigaraki is nothing but a literally insane, edgelord school-shooter now? Wasn’t he supposed to be Big Bad #2? Why would the hack authoring this disaster remove any chance the series had at a more thoughtful, interesting villain with new and challenging ideas and instead settle for Jared Leto’s Joker?
Now it’s even more threadbare and hackneyed than before—great! Since I last watched this, the power creep has seemingly reached Azathoth scale, and I don’t see how anyone is supposed to matter when a few select characters are insurmountably more powerful than everyone else. Speaking of which, these fights are still the worst of the fucking worst. Minus one or two overdone action scenes, they just exchange blows with nauseating amounts of speed lines and other bullshit to distract you from the largely embarrassing animation production at hand.
Plot conveniences still favor Midoriya at every step of the way, even when you may think otherwise, and the author still resorts to excusing asspulls with non-diegetic retcons, like that time in season three when the 1,000,000% Smash wasn’t actually one million percent because the author said so on Twitter, the thing which originally made me drop the show. Even as far back as season two, Midoriya wouldn’t have been able to break the mind control during the tournament if it weren’t conveniently written in such a way his quirk could counter, and it’s no surprise they’re still pulling this shit speaking of the aforementioned power creep, because how else could they limit the main cast now that they too are overpowered if not by introducing every seemingly unbeatable power with one single little weakness which just so happens to make the character in question wildly underpowered when fighting the protagonist who the series is still for some reason treating like an underdog.
For years, drooling internet shills, many of whom have been sponsored by Crunchyroll, have claimed My Hero Academia was no conventional hero story, and for years, they have been talking out of their asses. Nothing about it has ever broken the mold or subverted the expectations of anyone who’s seen anything like it, or in other words, anyone who’s seen any shounen anime in the history of existence, but unlike every other shounen anime in the history of existence, My Hero Academia is ugly.
Yes, this season has particularly shitty animation, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I mean the design sense is awful. Please just take a second to think about shounen’s Big Three. Depending on the character, the designs in Bleach can be downright erotic, and it’s filled to the brim with hot babes and chad hunks. One Piece has some of the most distinctive and eye-catching designs in manga, and while Naruto’s designs aren’t exactly glamorous or creative, its color palette is at least consistent, and Tetsuya Nishio’s anime adaptation designs were outstanding.
The newer hits also follow this pattern. I think everyone agrees Demon Slayer’s artwork is all it has ever had going for it in both manga and anime form, Hiro Mashima’s success is openly predicated on nothing but sex-appeal, and just look at One Punch Man.
It was a cult classic when ONE was drawing it, but when Yusuke Murata began drawing it three years later with his insane digital manga detailing and irresistible women, it took the world by storm.
Say what you will about these series perpetuating visual archetypes despite high-quality artwork, but Jesus Christ on a fucking bike, at least their character designs are worth advertising! BUT EVERY CHARACTER in My Hero Academia looks PANTS ON HEAD RETARDED, and forgive me for sounding so close-minded, but I simply will not entertain an argument to the contrary.
They are just fucking goofy, period. Maybe, just maybe, one or two waifus are marketable, but most just look dumb, and the thoughtless coloration of the anime makes the weirder ones stand out like a sore thumb and lose any niche moe they may’ve had in manga form. Also, and I’m usually not one to complain about fanservice, but when highschool girls dress like camera sluts despite having a shy and modest personality, their whole character feels backward.
I suppose boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 doesn’t matter, though, since even our protagonist himself is an inconsistent mess, an incongruous chimera who is both a crybaby loser who the viewer can empathize with during melodrama, and also a stone-faced alpha male they can self-insert with during hype action to satiate their trashy power fantasies.
A few years ago, people began saying, “A-1 Pictures is the problem,” and I naively thought everyone was finally waking up to the issues plaguing the industry. However, since then, everyone has turned their ire toward other studios like Deen and JC Staff, because Post-Maruyama MAPPA is now guilty of everything everyone hated A-1 for, but since MAPPA also produces many of the newest fan-favorites, boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 same people who were rightfully decrying A-1 for their incorrigible outsourcing, absurd mismanagement, inhumane scheduling and working conditions, and cynical “quantity over quality” business model have now had to forgive and forget so they don’t sound like hypocrites when sucking up to their new favorites.
I, on the other hand, have not forgotten this outrage we used to share, and in an attempt to rekindle negative attention toward these toxic business practices, I too stopped saying “A-1 Pictures is the problem,” only so I could instead start saying, “If A-1 Pictures is THE problem, then Bones is MY problem.” Like many others, Bones has sometimes engaged in these poor practices as well, of course nowhere near as much as A-1 or MAPPA, but the real reason I feel they should be maligned is different.
I feel they should be maligned for manipulating their impressionable teenage, college-aged fanbase into marketing their anime for them. Don’t even worry about the complete fucking trainwrecks like their 20th Anniversary Production, Carole & Tuesday, and just watch My Hero Academia, Bungou Stray Dogs, Noragami, or even some of their shit with actual artistic integrity like Captain Earth or Concrete Revolutio, and I dare you to tell me you found ANY fucking consistency therein.
Sure, you’ll have a few flashy action scenes drawn by a few talented holdouts from their early Sunrise days like Yutaka Nakamura, but their background art and compositing are often pitiful, and the animation itself is atrocious outside boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 few action scenes.
But those action scenes are more then enough, because they’ll metastasize through social media and forum sites like a cancer and infect every unsuspecting consumer they can find. Bones earned their reputation in the 2000s and early 2010s when they were just a bunch of Ex-Sunrise boys whose creative ambitions were too big for Bandai, but they saw where that creator-focused business model lead Manglobe, and they aren’t stupid.
This is why I call it a me problem and not a real problem, because not only is it silly to slap a label on entire studios when many have constantly changing staff, constantly restructured teams, constantly fluctuating budgets, and are almost always managed by corporate level business decisions which are made by production committees far above the pay grade of the actual creators working there, but also because to this day, Bones continues to produce amazing and objectively impressive works of animation.
However, the prestige they justly earn from such projects goes on to unjustly ascribe prestige to other projects which look like they were fished out of a fucking pig sty, and those who’d mistake a Blue Raspberry Ring Pop for a Ten Carat Diamond Ring eat it up regardless, hailing Bones as the consistent and absolute best.
According to the lovely moderation team, I’m required to make the disclaimer that I dropped season three six episodes in and didn’t watch season four.
Big funny. Thank you for reading. Overall 1 Story 2 Animation 3 Sound 3 Character 1 Enjoyment 1 To say Boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 was going into the 5th season of My Hero Academia with high expectations would be an understatement.
Even though I’m not a My Hero Academia enthusiast or even a fan for that matter, I can wholeheartedly say that this season of My Hero Academia was supposed to be the series game-changer and tone shifter. The 5th season was supposed to set My Hero Academia in a new and more compelling direction. A direction that would’ve brought My Hero Academia’s writing to a new height because of the fascinating and enchanting thematic value that it has to offer.
As the egregious season has finally encroach to its end, I can say that the changes the anime made will devalue and potentially destroy the story that Kouhei Horikoshi originally intended to tell. The anime only had one job: Adapt the source material faithfully and bring the spirit of the manga onto the screen. The studio behind the anime has done it before and is capable of doing it, but they purposely dragged out the pacing of the first arc to this season just so enough time is given for a non-canon side film.
The second half of the season was pretty much filler content mixed in with minuscule canon manga materials, which ultimately created an unnecessary mess that the future installment must clarify later on. The choice of dragging things out and making changes to the narrative structure ruined how the future narrative will play out.
You could advocate that I should evaluate the 5th season of My Hero by excluding my knowledge of the source material. But that would, in my eyes, be doing a massive disservice to myself. And in no way that I’m comfortable in doing so. Furthermore, I’m dubious that even people with absolutely no knowledge of the source material have praises for this season alone.
Honestly, there’s really nothing else to expand on because everything is just pointless. There’s little to no driving force in its narrative, nor was the season even entertaining.
The 5th installment of My Hero was just a filler. Skipping the 5th season and you’ll miss nothing. At this point, I’m just hoping My Hero Academia will continue to fade into obscurity because the previous installments aren’t much better. Overall 4 Story 5 Animation 6 Sound 5 Character 4 Enjoyment 4 It's 2021 and we can call My Hero Academia a major franchise among Shounen Jump's IPs.
While it may not be the single biggest hit of the decade, it does challenge the Big Three with its cult following. That doesn't mean MHA is a masterpiece franchise just because it's popular. In fact, MHA may be one of more controversial anime this year. My Hero Academia is a franchise that needs no introduction at this point. It's been an established franchise for years and we all came to know the heroes and villains that makes up its roster.
For any long time fan, MHA has also explored the hero society and dark underworld of the villains league. What if I told you we get to see an in depth look at both sides? Season boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 may have a more expanded character roster and plot but that doesn't always translate into a better show overall.
From the first half of Season 5, we are once again reintroduced to Class 1-A with some of its most prominent characters such as Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki, among others.
Their primary rivals are Class 1-B where they compete in a series of matches. To put it simply, it's a battle of pride and respect on the line. While Class 1-B's character roster is nowhere near as prominent as Class 1-A, there are still some important members to take notice. Among them include Itsuka, Ibara, and Tetsutetsu. Some of these almost represent mirror images of Class 1-A such as Shihai when compared to Tetsutetsu.
On the other hand, it's hard to root for Class 1-B due to their limited screen time and lack of development. Instead, the season decided to throw them in to showcase their abilities against Class 1-A to see which side is more dominant.
When that's out of the way, Season 5 also decided that Deku needs more training to improve himself. So what does that lead to? It means training with none other than Endeavor. Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki decides to all participate to improve themselves. Meanwhile, it appears that Endeavor knows when the Meta Liberation Army will strike so it's a chance to prepare everyone for the inevitable battles. While this all seems well structured on the surface, the season decided to drag its pacing by showcasing more of Todoroki's past, specifically his family.
As if we didn't know enough already, the anime really pushes the envelope to show the type of man Endeavor is. It becomes an oversaturated character study where we just want to move on from the past. Let's face it, we know enough about Todoroki for who he is. It's freaking Season 5 already. But perhaps the most intruging part of Season 5 is the side of the villains.
Specifically, I'm talking about the League of Villain led by Tomura Shigaraki. As one of the most prominent characters in the entire franchise, his dark past is explored in detail from his childhood. It casts a shadow of how a once seemingly innocent kid becomes the gruesome villain he is today. He's not the only one we feast our eyes on either as the Villains gets their background stories told that includes Toga and Twice.
It's important to understand their origins as the show wants us to experience the dark side of MHA. If you ask me, "My Villain Academia" is the best thing to happen this season. We're in a timeline where every year, MHA makes its presence felt.
I say with confidence now that Bones and the directors will adapt the rest of the manga to the dawn of time, for when it ends, so shall the anime. That doesn't mean MHA managed to live up to the hype all this time though. And in fact, the next season will have a lot of work to do if it wants to regain its former glory.
Overall 6 Story 7 Animation 8 Sound 8 Character 5 Enjoyment 5 The fifth season of Boku No Pico Academia is finally here. Welp, I guess it's now time for me to review this thing. This review will have some spoilers BUT THERE WON'T BE ANY BIG SPOILERS SO NO WORRIES :D.
I don't even know why I called them spoilers; the stuff I'll be mentioning are so little I can really just say this review is spoiler free. Before we start, for those people who are too lazy to read I made a very short version at the end.
Just scroll all the way to the end for it. Boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 right let's get straight to it ! !!! Here's a recap of bnha !!! (You can skip this if you want to get straight to bnha s5's review) Boku No Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) takes place in a world where 80% of the human population have quirks, special abilities that varies from being able to make explosions to being a freaking seal.
Because of this, people have used these quirks to commit evil crimes, these people are known as villains.
The people who use their quirks against evil are known as heroes. Our sad main protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, was unfortunately part of the sad 20% of people who didn't have any quirks, these people are known as quirkless people. Nevertheless he still strived to be a hero until one day after he almost got devoured by a slime. The number 1 hero, All Might, a hero who smiles even in times of trouble, a hero so strong you can see his abs through the costume, chose Midoriya as the 9th wielder of One For All, a quirk passed down from generation to generation, accumulating power and different quirks from previous wielders.
After long training, Midoriya, longing to be like the number 1 hero All Might, enrolls to U.A. Highschool, an academy made for heroes, and ends up breaking all the bones in his body multiple times, gets targetted by multiple terrorist groups, unlocks super saiyan, breaks all of his bones again, defeats a freaking drug lord, and almost evaropated into nothing because a child he rescued. The story idea is amazing. The anime isn't though. !!! bnha recap !!!
Story: 7 Boku No Pico Academia's 5th season (I'll try my best to not spoil a lot -- If you really don't want any spoilers then just skip this criteria) starts with the events following Hawks (no. 2 hero very hawt guy) and Endeavor's (no. 1 hero who's just tryna have a family again) battle against a Nomu (Monster-like humans with multiple quirks created with All For One).
We see Endeavor, with him being the new number 1 hero, a whole lot in this season. The first major part of the season is a series of battles with class A and B. Just before this series of battles, Deku recieves a vision of the previous One For All members.
During one of the battles, having received the same vision, Deku Manifests a new quirk! I only included the first major part and non-key info of this season to avoid spoiling anything :D Art: 8 Boku No Pico Academia's animation for this fifth season was very consistent. There weren't any episodes that was poorly made and there weren't any episodes that I would say better than others. bnha's animation overall is pretty great, but I don't know if it's just me or the animation was better during the previous seasons and I don't really see anything in the animation that really surprises me.
I don't really see any reason why I should give their art a 9. I don't really have much to say about their animation. IT'S GREAT OKAY IT'S JUST I DON'T HAVE THE WORDS RIGHT NOW. ALL RIGHT MOVING ON! Sound: 8 Just like their art, there aren't boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 to say about Boku No Pico Academia's sound LOL. I don't really see anything bad nor do I see anything that great? Oooo but I really like the first ending song it's very catchy and the rest of the openings and endings are pretty good too.
I PERSONALLY DON'T LIKE THE SECOND OPENING; I EVEN SKIP IT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE -- please don't kill me --. Voice acting and sound fx all sound pretty natural. Like I said nothing much to say. Okey it's time for the characters; I'm very excited for this one. Character: 5 One thing I don't like about Boku No Pico Academia -- I should really stop calling it that -- is that there's WAY too many characters.
The amount of characters that show up in my screen is more than the history terms I have to memorize for my finals. Come on do you really expect me to memorize all of them??? Since there's more bnha characters than the sands of the earth, we barely know anything about the characters. There isn't just enough time to properly introduce every single one; that's why we only have surface level information for everyone.
MOST SCREENTIME DOESN'T EVEN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PLOT SINCE THEY'RE SO BUSY SHOWING A FLASHBACK FOR SOME CHARACTER I DON'T EVEN CARE ABOUT OR MAYBE TOO BUSY WITH SHOWING US TODOROKI'S FAMILY ISSUES.
* Ehem * Forgive me; I got carried away. Because of bnha's large collection of characters, character development is also very slow. It took Bakugo 5 seasons to learn that a hero's job is to save people and 5 seasons to know that team work makes the dream work. LIKE BRU- ALSO DEKU WHEN THE HECK ARE YOU GONNA REALIZE SOMEONE HAS A HUGE CRUSH ON YOU AND MY GIRL WHEN ARE YOU GONNA CONFESS??
Also Tetsuo please forgive your dad (Mr. Endeavor San aka no. 1 hero) I know it's hard, but he's trying his best to have a family again; so please forgive him. Once again, because bnha has more characters than the members of every isekai main character's harem have, everyone doesn't have much of a personality. I CAN SUM UP MOST OF EVERYONE'S PERSONALITY IN SEASON 5 IN ONE SENTENCE WATCH ME.
Deku: I HAVE TO GET STRONGER TO BECOME #1 HERO * cries * Iida: THERE IS NO POINT IN GETTING SAD- LET'S ALL MOVE ON AND TRAIN TO GET STRONGER. PLUS ULTRA !!!! Bakugo: LOL noob ur never passing me just go die and go straight to hell idc about ur silly dreams. go to hell. Mr. Endeavor San: SHOOOTOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!! #AllMight_kinda_noob #I_wanna_have_a_family_again Todoroki: Frick u dad.
Ochako: OH MY LORD I JUST HUGGED DEKU KUN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG Midnight: AWWWW OMG U GUYS ARE SO CUTE HOW ADORABLE !!!!!
UWU !!!!! Those may not be very accurate, but you know what I mean right? They all have one-dimension personalities. There are really just too much characters and because of that, bnha characters aren't very special.
Most Boku No Pico Academia male characters only exist for gay ships and all the girls for ----- well you knowww. Don't get me wrong I don't dislike bnha's characters; I actually like them, since I relate to some of them in a way, but hear me out. THERE ARE JUST TOO MUCH BOKU NO PICO ACADEMIA CHARACTERS. Enjoyment: 5 I don't enjoy Boku No Pico Academia. I started watching bnha, because my former bestfriend asked me to watch it boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 since I've already seen seasons 1-4, I might as well watch season 5 too.
I personally believe bnha is made for a younger audience -- I MYSELF IS NOT OLD OKAY IM REFERRING TO TEENS AND PRETEENS -. It doesn't make sense though, since there are uh. How do I explain. * ehem * Midnight * ehem * Mountain Lady * ehem * Momo Yaoyarazu -- I don't know if I spelled that correctly -.
YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN. As I was saying, I believe bnha was made for preteens. Most jokes aren't even funny (for me atleast) and rather childish (yes I just said childish). Some jokes are just very overused. Stuff like deku talking a lot and being a complete nerd; blabbing a lot of crap that no one cares about and people making him shut up used to be funny, BUT IT'S BEEN 5 SEASONS LET'S TRY UH OTHER THINGS PERHAPS?
Also Kacchan being loud and disrespectful used to be really funny but It's getting kind of annoying to be honest. Now for fight scenes. I used to love Boku No Pico academia's fight scenes. I honestly don't know why anymore. I don't know why I ever loved their fight scenes.
bnha battles are just 60% side characters stating the obvious facts about the battle, 20% chit chat between the people fighting10% screaming "IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?", 5% shouting the names of their ultimate moves and 5% actual fighting. Don't get me wrong, Boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 actually enjoy battles from shounen animes it's just I don't like side characters that I don't care about talk about the battle.
IT'S AWKWARD. Another thing is bnha's very slow plot pacing. It's so extremely slow and because of that I don't really find bnha that interesting anymore compared to when it was at the first two seasons.
I just continue watching for the sake of finishing. Overall: 6 In conclusion, Boku No Pico Academia is just another shounen anime. The only thing this anime has anything different to offer is that it's main character is a total wimp and cries a lot and this anime has infinitely more characters.
LOL all jokes aside, Boku No Hero Academia is an 'okay' anime. It has a fairly nice story and plotline with great animation and sound. To be real, great animation and music is all Boku No Hero Academia is. bnha is boku no hero academia season 5 episode 19 overrated. If you truly love this show and this is the type of anime you enjoy, that's okay. We all have our preferences and own opinions. I don't necessarily hate bnha, but it's definitely not the anime for me.
. and that is my review for Boku No Hero Academia Season 5 THANCHU FOR READING !!! HAVE A GREAT DAY :D For those too lazy to read: Story: 7 Art: 8 - consistent good animation Sound: 8 - good sound. opening and ending songs are pretty good too Character: 5 - bland characters and very slow character development Enjoyment: 5 - very slow plot pacing; made for a younger audience 7 + 2(8) + 2(5) = 33 33/5 = 6.6 I suddenly forgot how to round up.

Thatâ€™s right, Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his lifeâ€”a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. Thatâ€™s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered â€œquirk,â€ Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But thatâ€™s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the worldâ€™s most prestigious hero academies.

If you've been here since a few months ago, you probably remember us running a donation campaign. Ever since we removed ads a year and half ago (excluding third-party ones that are impossible to remove), AK's wallet dried up, thanks to your donations we were able to extend AKs life for a few months. It has been 3 long years, it was great while it lasted, but AnimeKisa is never coming back online.
What now? There are many alternatives out there, here's a list of a few with the most features: - Animension.to - no ads on most animes, watch together(sync) with friends, suggestions, official sources, account system/bookmarks/.
- 9anime.to - has ads, suggestions, account system/bookmarks/. - Gogoanime.gg - has ads, account system/bookmarks/. Warning!

Once enrolled in the high school for heroes, U.A., Izuku soon discovers being a hero is much more complicated than it appears.
â€” Stevo R My Hero Academia is the type of anime that excels in all the things a typical shonen should be. The characters are entertaining and have their own personalities, the action is amazing, it's funny and the powers are super interesting. That being said, it also suffers from your typical fan service, which is unfortunate and ultimately one of it's worse flaws.
At it's best My Hero Academia reminds you of the greatest anime you've watched before. There are a few animes you can see served as inspiration (or a little more than that) but most noticeably is Hunter x Hunter as well as some obvious nods at american comic books. That being said it's still worth watching, its entertaining and the art as well as animation are incredibly solid. The villains are interesting and our main heroes are fun and exciting to watch specially when in intense situations (not as much in the school environment).
