I normally do weekly My Hero Academia reviews. Given the holidays going on in the past two weeks, it took me a little longer than usual to get around to watching the past two episodes I missed. Well. I have caught up. And as a massive Mirio fan, I’m sure everyone who’s caught up knows exactly how devastating the most recent episode of My Hero Academia was.
The year is ending, this decade is ending, and we’ve had another awesome year of movies. I’ve been thinking about my top 10 movies of this past year a lot. There were some great sequels and original movies, exciting things happening behind and in front of the camera, and overall some really memorable stuff. I’m pleased to say that looking back, I have a wide range of favorites for a lot of different reasons. It was hard to rank these movies, but I finally came to a decision after hours of deliberation.
This has been a stressful episode to wait for. My Hero Academia had another great episode this week, and I just have to say Kirishima is still one of my favorites and I care VERY DEEPLY for his well-being.
To talk about Promare, the new anime film from Studio Trigger (makers of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, etc.) I have to start at Anime NYC. I went to Anime NYC this year and Promare was everywhere, from cosplays to posters to fanarts. I actually cosplayed as Kamina from Gurren Lagann and had a few people call me Galo from Promare. Needless to say, I was a little interested to see it. I wasn’t totally sold though. Fast forward to the past few days: Promare was coming back in theaters, December 8th for the sub and December 10th for the dub. My friends were going to the subbed version, and when one couldn’t go last minute, the ticket practically fell into my lap. There I was, walking in blind to this movie with no sense of what I was about to witness.
It’s always great to get an episode highlighting an interesting character that we haven’t seen enough of. My Hero Academia focused on Tamaki, aka Suneater this week, and showed a lot of what drives him and what kind of person he is. In conclusion: Tamaki is sweet and loves his friends!
Welcome to my weekly My Hero Academia reviews! I’ve been a fan of this show for about a year, and this is the first time I’m actually watching the shows as they air. I should also mention I watch it with my three other roommates, so I have tons of theories and fun commentary to share about the show. Also worth mentioning, I’m approaching this from a show-only perspective, so I haven’t read the manga and have no idea what’s coming. So better late than never, and I’m going to be writing weekly recap/reviews for this new season. So far, the season has been amazing, and with Overhaul continuing to cause tensions with his Quirk-erasing master plan, this week continues to build the suspense to a ridiculous high.
