This is basically a recap of season 1. That's all it is. It does a good job telling the story of season 1 in just one episode. It does a good job setting up for season 2 and getting people hyped. There isn't much to say about this since it's just a long summary.
Those who want to start with season 2 right away without taking the time to watch season 1 should just watch this to have an idea of what is happening, though I would not recommend it. This is more of a "refreshing of memory." Get's you pumped up for season 2.
Not really worth watching, but it is worth something to those who love 100% completions.
Pros: Not much, it delves into the individuals more so than a usual episode.
Cons: Boring recap of series.
None really just a recap of season 1.
How can i write a longer review when this episode is only 21 min long and total trash how long must it be. It seriously is a single episode there's nothing to write about and this bullshit minimum verbiage is stupid. This is getting ridiculous sometimes there's not much to say on a recap episode, that everyone would've seen watching the series.(6)
This episode basically recaps season 1. As, IMO, it targets people who hasn't seen season 1, I think it does a pretty good job at telling the main events.
The best soundtracks are here, the main characters are presented. However, there was few new animation (I guess it was even none).
For people who have already seen season 1, it is a great reminder, and surely a quick one, while still being respectful of the best scenes from season 1.
To conclude on all this : I think it is a pretty good episode to get yourself in the mood before watcing season 2. However, as it required
only editing to prepare this episode, I'll only rate 8, which is my overall feeling about My hero academia season 1, minus 1 point.
It's a very short filler episode in between the seasons and although it doesn't have actual plot, the intention isn't for the plot, but more for the characters. I liked that the directors & writers made it clear that this episode was a mere filler by pausing all progression. I did enjoy the mini recap of season 1 because it helps my memory.
I feel like the art was better in this episode just because of the minimum amount of animation required. The notebook looks very realistic and they made the graphite from the sketches very detailed. I also liked how they added a bit
of progression in the quality of each page in the note.
The soundtrack is good as always because it's nice to listen to.
The characters were the best part of the episode because it took a lot of time to focus on the main cast of the anime. Their powers, suits, personalities, and everything that Izuku observed was really helpful in getting to know the characters. The timing is also nice, because when you learned enough about character the page flips and that buys enough to process about each character.
I really like this episode and hopefully you found it interesting.
